“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

Five tips to create a stunning family bathroom everyone will love

The bathroom is somewhere that everyone in your family needs to feel comfortable in. It's a room that everyone uses at least once a day, but it's also a place people can go to relax after a long and stressful day with work or just life in general. In busy families, the bathroom can be a source of contention, with everyone often needing to use it around the same time in the morning, for example, before work or school. Given everyone's taste are different, but the bathroom, like other living spaces, needs to be accessible and enjoyable for everyone, it can seem challenging to create a stylish family bathroom everyone will love.

How I create a bedtime routine that works for us

Bedtime has always been a big thing for us, especially when Isla came around. She was not a good sleeper. But we had set a good bedtime routine with little Noah and so we continued with Isla. Sometimes we wouldn’t be at home, so the routine would vary in terms of location – but wherever we went we made sure bathtime was always an option.

Teaching your child to care about keeping clean

Teaching your child to care about keeping clean

Babies solely depend on their caregiver for nutrition and hygiene. You have to feed and wash them while they are young but as they grow older, you must teach them how to take care of themselves and create a good "clean" routine.  This can start with a simple habit like to making a mess during their feeding times and gradually letting go of control as you may deem appropriate as time goes. Teaching your child self-care at the appropriate age is important since you don’t want them lagging behind their peers as it may hamper their growth and behaviors as an adult.VIEW the POST

The best things about bathtime

It sounds silly but I love bathtime, I always have, right from my first pregnancy to today. When pregnant there was nothing I enjoyed more than lying in a full, hot, bubbly bath reading a book or watching my favourite TV show at the time. Then when the babies arrived, it was bathing with them or watching them play nicely in the bath. There is always something magical about bathtime and it is one of my favourite times of the day.
