Happy International Women’s Day
 I’m lucky enough to have grown up with independent & strong women all around me. It’s where I get my resilience & determination from.

It’s something that I want to ensure Isla has too: to be resilient is to have patience and strength. To keep a smile, even if deep down it’s painful. Determination is to have focus and passion. To keep going even if the end is not quite in sight.

I can see a lot of this in her already
 she is far more confident than I ever was at 10 and she knows her own mind. Which I love.

Now I need to make sure she has self confidence, self awareness and self love. So she can endure all that life throws at her and she can listen to her body & mind to guide her. 

I love that I’m still learning things about myself on this motherhood journey: some of those things I’m learning from Isla.

I’m very proud of my baby girl đŸ„°

Get cleaning the air fryer with me
 đŸ§Œ A slightly different post from me tonight: a handy little tip for cleaning your air fryer.⁣
⁣
There’s something about a cleaning tip that makes cleaning that bit đ˜Łđ˜Šđ˜”đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜ł. We use the air fryer everyday, we love it. Keeping it clean is important.⁣
⁣
So: ⁣
⁣
â–Ș add đ—łđ—źđ—¶đ—żđ˜† đ—čđ—¶đ—Ÿđ˜‚đ—¶đ—± to the trays⁣
â–Ș add water to đ—°đ—Œđ˜ƒđ—Č𝗿 the plates inside the tray⁣
â–Ș air fry for 𝟯 đ—șđ—¶đ—»đ˜€âŁ
⁣
If you’ve only been cooking vegetables and things like that then this is đ˜Žđ˜¶đ˜§đ˜§đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜Șđ˜Šđ˜Żđ˜” to clean the trays. Simply rinse and dry. ⁣
⁣
If you’ve cooked meats or food that sticks to the trays, like cheese, then give it a good wash afterwards. The air frying will have helped to release those foods!⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗼𝘃đ—Č đ˜†đ—Œđ˜‚ đ˜đ—żđ—¶đ—Čđ—± đ˜đ—”đ—¶đ˜€ 𝘆đ—Č𝘁?⁣

⁣
I just love it. It’ll be the only flower I can’t actually kill. I either water them too much or not enough
 it makes me quite sad. I have a wisteria not doing so great at the moment, so I need tips!!⁣
⁣
Fun fact: 2 of the 4 plants you can see in this photo are real. đ˜žđ˜©đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜© 𝟾 đ˜„đ˜° đ˜șđ˜°đ˜¶ đ˜”đ˜©đ˜Ș𝘯𝘬 𝘱𝘳𝘩 𝘧𝘱𝘬𝘩? And I gave you a rather big clue in my first paragraph đŸ€ŁâŁ

 it was nice as Isla hadn’t seen it before. We had a lovely snuggly Sunday. ⁣

Isla is so close to her level 6 certificate. She’s been coming on in leaps and bounds over the last few weeks
 her confidence is definitely improving with her @gymfinitykids classes.

Today was awards week for Isla’s class, and I love they they dish out “part way” certificates to those who haven’t quite levelled up yet. Everyone gets a certificate. It’s so lovely.

With my discount code they waive the joining fee, which is £30, so don’t forget to use it when signing up your child to @gymfinitykids

Everything you need to know about World Book Day 2022

Everything you need to know about World Book Day 2022

World Book Day 2022 takes place on March 3rd, and it’s bound to be a special one. World Book Day was established in 1995, but was first celebrated in the UK and Ireland in 1997, making this year the 25th anniversary of the iconic event. Many schools and nurseries celebrate World Book Day as a way to encourage children to develop their reading skills, and discover the joys it can bring. For adults, World Book Day can mean dreaded costumes and time-consuming activities, but the beauty of the day is that it has the power to reignite your passion for reading, and help you reminisce on your childhood favourites, too.

Encouraging bedtime reading with In the book

Recently, with lockdowns and a lot of life changes, we have got out of routine. Somedays seem harder than others and the children’s behaviour goes from brilliant to frustrated and tired quite quickly. We have explored a lot of ways to try and bring a little more routine and happiness to our days. One of my favourite changes is bringing back bedtime reading and In the book have helped us do this.

An exciting new book in the Emily Knight series I am… Becoming

An exciting new book in the Emily Knight series I am… Becoming

I love finding out about new books and authors, that are new to me, it's a little lesson and finding out about a new person is always exciting. Isla loves reading and she has started reading, quite big books, when she is winding down in bed at the end of the day. She was excited to receive a copy of Emily Knight I am Becoming... from author Abiola Bello. This is the third book in the Emily Knight series. Isla really wants to read the other books now.

Time School: We Will Honour Them book review

I have been trying to read a lot more this year, I think I have read more books since January than I have in the past 5 years. I forgot how much I love to read, I could sit and read for hours when I get into a good book. I remember a few months back I had nearly finished the book and so I kept going, it was 2am before I put the book down. Today I am honoured to share an excerpt and competition to win a copy of Time School: We Will Honour Them. The new book by Nikki Young.
