A much needed break this weekend. I’m glad the sun came out so Isla could play mermaids! ☀️

Noah’s had an adventure at this first scout camp this weekend, he’s extremely tired. And so Isla had us all to herself.

How did you spend the sunny Sunday?

💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

Creating a #BrightFuture for our children with Unilever

Creating a #BrightFuture for our children with Unilever

I sometimes sit and wonder what life will be like for my two when they are my age? Will they have floating vehicles, instead of ones that require wheels? Will life on earth be completely different to what it is now? When I think back to how life was when I was a child, mobile phones had not been invented, the internet was not established and cars did not have all of these computer whizz-tech gadgets that they do now. Will my children have a #BrightFuture?  VIEW the POST

What is my story? What does define my design?

What is my story? What does define my design?

I learnt a lot from the sessions I went to at Britmums Live this weekend, from defining my blog design to styling up my photos. These were my favourite sessions and the parts of the weekend where I went into full study mode (geek glasses on). They had very thought provoking presentations, what else do you expect from two very amazing ladies. The nicest woman on the planet, Lucy Heath and a new face to me, Katy Orme who was also very lovely.  VIEW the POST

What’s in my bag for BritMums Live

So as you know I am off to the networking event of the year tomorrow, yes I am finally going to BritMums Live! Woo hoo. I am really looking forward to it. I am hoping to meet some wonderful food bloggers, craft bloggers, lifestyle bloggers and of course other link minded Mummy bloggers. There is going to be a huge mix of bloggers and I am so excited to get meeting them.

I am actually going to Britmums Live 2015

YES! I finally did it: booked my ticket to Britmums Live and made sure that the family vacation was not booked up at the same time. Phew. The past two years I have tried to go to Britmums Live but our family holiday has been booked too. I am super excited to go this year and meet new faces, put faces to names and twitter handles and also learn. Learn, learn, learn! So here is a little about me and why I am going, looking forward to sharing my experiences over the next 5 weeks. VIEW the POST

#SnapHappyBritMums September 30th

I am really enjoying #SnapHappyBritMums as I love taking photos, I think its great BritMums are running a fun daily photography themed challenge. Every day there is a new prompt for a photo with a new theme and you take a photo to represent your "interpretation" of that theme. It is great seeing everyone's different ideas.
