We had a lovely afternoon exploring the cycling trails at High Lodge, Thetford. It was nice to be together.

We have some exciting things to show you that’s new to @forestryengland and High Lodge. Watch this space.

Do you like exploring the woods? 🌳

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?

My top 5 must have list for your baby

My top 5 must have list for your baby

I have been reflecting on when the kiddies were babies a lot lately. A combination of them seemingly as tall as me and lots of people I know are having or have recently had babies. It has got me reminiscing. I always wondered what advice would be beneficial to a new Mum, that I would have benefited from myself 12 years ago. So, here’s my top 5 must have list for your baby.

5 Signs your baby needs a hypoallergenic formula

5 Signs your baby needs a hypoallergenic formula

We as parents only want what’s best for our babies. When we notice that our children are suffering from an allergy or intolerance to cow’s milk, we want to find the best formula to help our precious baby. A Hypoallergenic formula is recommended for such allergies and intolerances to cow’s milk. VIEW the POST

Lose your baby weight at home

Having babies adds pounds but, as we all know, gaining weight when you are pregnant is the “healthy” thing to do. In fact, professionals recommend that women eat 300 more calories a day when pregnant to gain sufficient weight. Of course, after we have the baby, the weight stays on and we find ourselves struggling to lose pounds and feel normal again. You might find yourself search diets and weight loss programs. 

The baby weight battle: campaign strategies for busy new mums

The baby weight battle: campaign strategies for busy new mums

After what seems like an endless pregnancy, those early years of parenthood are bewildering for new Mums. Aside from the inevitable pandemonium of raising an infant, many women are left wondering what has happened to their body in the wake of pregnancy. Indeed, for many of us the prospect of returning to our pre-pregnancy weight and appearance is an unattainable pipe dream. The battle against your baby weight, however, is one that you can and will win! Unfortunately, it will be won neither by a quick fix nor a conveniently packaged solution. VIEW the POST

A healthier me…

For a while now I have been telling myself to sort it out, I still have a little baby belly and although I exercise and eat (usually) quite well I can't seem to shift it. So when I came back to work I decided I wasn't going to be lazy in the things I do, making decisions like walking up the stairs instead of getting the lift up to my desk for one example. Daddy Constant cooks 80% of the time in our house and we always eat well, hardly eat fatty foods, the occasional takeaway or chips from the chippy! Where do I start though? VIEW the POST

Week 7 – the 6 week check

Yes, you read correctly, Isla had her 6 week check today at 7 weeks old, the doctors couldn’t get us in before hand. On one of the hottest days that I can remember for this year so far, off we went to the doctors, to get weighed, checked – oh and poop all over the doctor bed. Thats my girl! You can see a little Noah in the photo above, this was actually taken Christmas morning when he was 7 weeks old and below is a photo of Isla at 7 weeks old too – the same age. Look how similar they are, apart from the hair of course. Ahhh I love my little babies!!! Isla is now 4.11kg, which I used an online converter to lbs and she is lovely 9lb – I cant believe how tiny she is still, when Noah was 9lb he was 5 weeks old:…
