We’re jumping into July like…. 🕶

I have lots on the agenda for July,including woodland visits, beach visits and catching up on my uni. I also have a “to read” pile that’s growing! I took my book to Centre Parcs but I didn’t read one sentence 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m looking forward to seeing all the Summery photos in July and a huge thank you to everyone that joined in with June!

We took a trip to Great Grandmas after school. It was nice to have dinner with her and the kiddies enjoyed exploring at the bottom of the garden.

I love her garden, it backs onto the river. There’s so much to see just standing here. Not to mention grandma’s beautiful garden. That rose bush is just amazing.

I love how the horizon has changed over the years. When I was a child you could see for miles. Over to Shuttleworth where the planes do their air shows.

Now, it’s all overgrown and the trees have gained a lot of height. It’s amazing how much it can change in 39 years!

Do you have a family house that’s been in your life since you were born?

The view from our sofa in the morning is the best. Squirrels, moorhens, ducks, deer and lots of birds… it’s amazing to sit here and watch them.

I love that our garden is full of trees and the lake. It’s meant we’ve seen more wildlife than normal.

We’ve been feeding the deers berries and lots of nuts and seeds for all the other animals. The squirrels are loving the peanuts!

There’s a huge family of geese here too. They have been coming for seed in the evenings.

The squirrels and deer are so tame. We’re quite shocked at how close they get. A squirrel took a peanut from my hand. Made my day!

🦌 I’m so happy; after 10 minutes of being in our lodge the deer popped up in the garden. There was 2 in total. They looked so cute. I loved their V shapes on their noses. They came about a metre close. So tame. 

We’ve made the most out of @centerparcsuk break so far. Table tennis, badminton, Bella Italia and an evening swim in the most amazing pool area ever.

I can’t wait to go in the pool tomorrow. And play more badminton 🏸 (my favourite sport).

So far, outside our back window we’ve seen the 2 deer, lots of ducks, geese, Moorhens and a heron. A few different breeds of geese too.

We also saw a tiny mouse darting all over the woodland floor in search of food. He was very cute. 🐭 

Anyone else love being surrounded by so much nature?

Todays #mummyphotoaday prompt is view. I’d love to see your favourite views! Whether that’s a landscape, person or an object.

This is one of my favourite views on a dog walking route we found near our home. The sky looks like it goes on for miles. The big yellow sun painting everything with its golden glow.

You can just see my fam in the distance walking the dogs. 🐾 

What’s your favourite view?

We made the most of Summer Solstice last night. We took Rambo for a walk and soaked up some sun and fresh air.

It’s the first time we’d all been out together for a dog walk in a long time. It’s really nice as the kids always open up and talk about random things.

I loved the colours in this photo. It was golden hour and I managed to hide the sun behind the bushes. They’re looking into the pond. Not sure Rambo understood the assignment.

Did you make it out for an evening walk?

With Summer Solstice tomorrow it’s got me reminiscing about our last trip abroad and hoping we get some super sun this year too!

I love flying. Sun. Sandy beaches. Adventures in new places. Eating new foods and meeting new people.

My favourite bit is watching the kiddies have fun together with Daddy… 💛

What’s your favourite thing about holidays?

The top 3 things to avoid after Botox treatment

The top 3 things to avoid after Botox treatment

It pretty much goes without saying that the aspect of Botox is certainly not something that should be taken lightly under any circumstances. After all, it is not a decision to be taken lightly or casually. It is a decision taken by a very select few people not only because it is too expensive, but there is also the fact that quite a few individuals are rather sceptical about the after-effects of Botox operations across the board. In fact, short of a few years back, hardly anyone outside of the rich community would even consider the idea of Botox since it was too expensive to afford back then. Now, however, it has gotten slightly more affordable and more people are thinking about the Botox option in general. VIEW the POST

A guide to selecting the best housing option for your aging parents

If you are currently gearing up to have a ‘big talk’ about the future with your elderly parents, you’re probably feeling a bit nervous about the outcome. Thankfully, I do not have to worry about this as both of my parents are in their 50’s, but it does make me worry about how things will be. Especially as I have watched how things with my GrandFathers have developed over the years, it’s difficult. It’s an emotional rollercoaster for everyone involved. While making decisions on behalf of a mentally diminished parent can be emotionally draining, there are fewer worries about how to approach the situation and how to bring up the subject of outside care. With cognitively able parents, it can be tough just getting past the mental barrier that says ‘I’m the child. I can’t be in charge of this.’
