This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.


🌾 I adore this photo!...

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!


We went out with a...

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?


Yeah for the #weekend!! It...

What a great #friyay it’s been! We spent the morning “washing” the food shopping, then went for a nice big walk around Godmanchester meadows. It was a beautiful walk and nice as there was a breeze which cooled us down.

Yes, I did say wash the shopping. Is anyone else doing this? I basically Zoflora all of the food shopping as I unpack it. The actual shopping process takes a lot longer and now I’ve added an extra 30 mins with the clean. We just want to be sure it’s not harbouring anything. Peace of mind if nothing else.

Then this afternoon we let the kids have movie time. They’ve been getting too hot in the garden. It is super hot in the garden, it seems to be a little sun trap. Which I’m not complaining about.

Daddy then took the kiddies to the park to play croquet and I had a snooze in the sun.

All in all it’s been a beautiful day and chilled. Probably one of my favourite Fridays.

What did you get up to?


What a great #friyay it’s...

BABY born magic bed heaven toy review

BABY born magic bed heaven toy review

Isla loves playing babies, so when she received the new BABY born magic bed heaven and BABY born Soft Touch Doll she was super happy. These are great for stimulating imaginative play and also encourages Isla to be responsible. She has to look after her doll and take care of it, it's really cute watching her rise to the occasion.

Guide to choosing the best bedroom furniture

Guide to choosing the best bedroom furniture

There is quite a lot that goes into deciding on your bedroom furniture and it really depends a lot on the décor of the room in general and therefore it is essential to consider the overall theme you are attempting to go for before you even begin. What is your color scheme and what how is this going to present itself? Is it a modern or traditional style (you will want to consider the property type when going through this). VIEW the POST

Saving space in your little ones bedroom

As any parent will relate, keeping the kids toys tidy in the house can be hardwork. Making sure you have the right storage options and also making sure the toys are accessible to the children. We decided bunk beds saved us the best amount of space at the moment, as the children share a room. When we buy our own house and the children have their own bedrooms, this will not be the case. So I am starting to look at options that will be perfect for saving space.  …

Choosing the right children’s bedding #roomtogrow

Choosing the right children’s bedding #roomtogrow

Having the children share a bedroom is fine, but I like to make sure the bedding matches. If Isla has a particular style then Noah needs to have the same kind of style on his bed too. For example if Isla has a character, then Noah will have a character. I like things to look matching and our beds are the cosiest places, so it's essential to get them looking perfect.  VIEW the POST

Do you have sleepy people or are you a sleepy person?

Do you have sleepy people or are you a sleepy person?

It is no great secret that becoming a family means that, for the most part, you get very little sleep. I see it as you either have sleepy people in your household, or you are that sleepy person. You might have a rather rare thing, which is a baby that sleeps through from an early age and loves sleep. So a sleepy person in nature. This is Noah. He gets that from his Mother, me. Whereas, our second child, Isla, is not a sleepy person. She takes after her Daddy, who loves to be awake and doing things right from the get go. VIEW the POST

The good, the bed and the ugly truth about my messiness

You would think choosing a bed is simple, and perhaps it is a whole lot easier if you only have to consider yourself, but what if you have an entire family to think about? Hmmm, not that simple after all, which is what I discovered when I was attempting to find a bed that would make both my partner and I happy, as well as trying to figure out which beds would withstand being used as a trampolines by the kids. …
