🩷 My beautiful family…

I love this photo, it’s not often we get a photo of the 4 of us. The children are growing up so quickly, it’s really important to me to capture these memories. Noah will be taller than me soon (I have heels on in this photo). 

This photo was taken the other weekend at my cousin-in-laws wedding. It was a wonderful day and the sun was shining. 

Have you enjoyed your half term with your familam so far?

We had a buffet breakfast at a local restaurant, 𝘄𝗮𝗹𝗸 around Priory Marina and then back to my sister in laws for afternoon tea and bunny cuddles.⁣
⁣
So, it’s basically revolved around food & walking. 𝗣𝗲𝗿𝗳𝗲𝗰𝘁 👌🏻⁣

🍩 Anyone else looking 𝗳𝗼𝗿𝘄𝗮𝗿𝗱 to some sunshine and a break from routine next week? ⁣

I have officially completed the academic part of my 𝗱𝗲𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗲. I have to now wait until mid July to get results. I’ve never been so nervous. But I’m glad it’s done. I nearly gave up about 20 times over the last 5 months when we lost the pups 🐾 , but I kept going… ⁣
⁣
So, I’ve now got half term to relax and enjoy some well earned time with my 𝘧𝘢𝘮𝘪𝘭𝘢𝘮. Goodness knows the hours I’ve lost spending time studying over the last 3 years. 𝗕𝘂𝘁 𝗜 𝗰𝗼𝘂𝗹𝗱𝗻’𝘁 𝗵𝗮𝘃𝗲 𝗱𝗼𝗻𝗲 𝗶𝘁 𝘄𝗶𝘁𝗵𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗶𝗿 𝘀𝘂𝗽𝗽𝗼𝗿𝘁 & I’m looking forward to sunny adventures this Summer.⁣
⁣
This photo was from our trip to 𝗖𝗿𝗲𝘁𝗲. It’s a lovely memory of a happy holiday. I’m hoping we’ll make lots of new memories and big smiles over the coming weeks.⁣

Very proud of my little man cub today… whose not so little anymore. He had 2 adult teeth extracted this morning, in preparation for a fixed brace fitting.

I knew what was coming to a certain extent but poor Noah didn’t. Thankfully the dentist knew the right tricks, he asked Noah to close his eyes so Noah couldn’t see the ghastly needle. 😱 Mummy on the other hand nearly passed out!

Then watching the dentist do a tug of war with 2 of Noah’s teeth was horrifying too. The force to pull out a tooth is quite considerable. I hadn’t really thought about it before. But the crunching sounds were 🤢. 

He didn’t faint, albeit he nearly did and he hardly complained at all throughout the day. He is super brave and made me very proud.

It’s horrible seeing your babies in pain. The worst part is Noah has to have 2 more teeth removed in a few weeks & he’ll know what is going to happen.😱

Noah said he’s going to be poorly on that day! Haha!

A not so nice story but I tried to make it less gory for those that hate dentist or are just squeamish.

Four reasons to have an autumn clear out

Four reasons to have an autumn clear out

We’re all guilty of holding onto more items than we need. I think it's usually a result of the sentimental value we give to possessions - perhaps it was a book gifted to you by a relative, or one you read to your kids when they were little, or a DVD boxset you’ve watched over and over again. However, the reality is: if you’ve used it, loved it and it’s now sitting on your shelf collecting dust, it’s probably time to give it a new home. Autumn is on the horizon, so why not start the new season with a post-summer clear out? VIEW the POST

This book, Understanding children and teens, is a coaching tool to help you understand your children and encourage positive behaviour, despite all the stresses going on around us. VIEW the POST

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.
