🍂 So it might just be time for the bobble hats to come out of hiding… anyone else live in hats during the colder months?

It’s been so nice to wrap up in layers of cosy jumpers, boots and jackets this week. I love “sweater weather” so much! If that made you laugh, then you’re my kinda people.

What is your go to Autumnal outfit? I’m in the need for inspiration 🍂

If I was a….

This took me forever to make but I loved doing it. I love being creative and I learnt to use CapCut which Isla absolutely loves. She squealed when I showed her this.

I have the template (which I might blog about as the one I followed wasn’t quite accurate) and I have a few sneaky ways of doing things!

I’ve loved seeing everyone else’s version of this and so I had to do my own! And I wouldn’t change a thing… 

What would you be? 🥰

Is there anything more relaxing and calming than this view? The sun setting over the sea and the calmness in the sea too.

Made me smile looking back at my Summer photos today. I’ve had a day of “cosy” as I drank far too much last night at my friends 40th party… I danced all night and walked home with bare feet. The signs of a good night!

I’ve not been out and danced in years. I literally can’t remember the last time I did that! It was a nice break from being Mum & Dad. Letting your hair down is sometimes the best medicine from a stressful few weeks.

What do you do to unwind?

I think it’s really important to love the space where you work, for you spend a long time working in it! When designing my home office area I kept thinking about what makes me happy…

I wanted a space dedicated to my desk. After working on makeshift spaces for 2 years it felt so nice to have a dedicated work space.

I wanted to be by the garden window so I can see the flowers and watch nature about it’s business. I have seen lots of birds and a few squirrels this Spring and Summer.

I wanted the right storage too. Working from home, studying and the blog all result in lots of things I need to put away. I wanted them to have a home. I’ve got the Kallax unit from IKEA with cupboards, drawers and box storage. It’s perfect!

I’ve been doing a bit of a Autumn clean in preparation for the impending season. I love Autumn, it’s my favourite and I want to start it with a clutter free office area (and mind too).

Anyone else feel more productive if their environment is less cluttered?

Everything feels a little uphill at the moment! Don’t you think?

Noah has been especially all over the place this week. One minute happy and next minute shouting at me! Because obviously it was me that stole his PE shorts after his lesson 🤷🏼‍♀️

We keep getting into conversations that just blow up. I’m not sure what is it but I’m hoping we can sort it out soon. It gets to 5 o clock and we start saying devices down, as dinner is nearly ready, and they’re behaviour changes.

I think we might have to go back to basics. Bedtime routines & no device babysitters after school. I am hoping he is tired which is causing him to feel a bit more frustrated than normal.

Lots of emotions this week. I feel sad about The Queen. A bit worried about the changes ahead. Work has been busy & I had a busy week for uni too. So maybe there’s a bit on me to just take a breathe!

Do you ever have days like this? I feel like I need a day where I’m not near other humans… 😂

💦 It feels like I lifetime ago I was watching this water baby jumping in the pool. Over and over. We played volleyball, aqua fit and did lots of swimming.

Since getting back from holiday (and now my assignment is out of the way) I’m concentrating on my fitness. I hate the way I feel and I hate the way I look! And only I can do something about it.

Not that I want to strut around on social media in my bikini or anything. But it would be nice not to feel sluggish and embarrassed about my waist.

I went for my first run in months yesterday and yoga today burnnnnnnned. My legs are on fire. Even my knees. 😂 I’m nearly 40… I need to get fit! 

No pain no gain!

Any fitness tips for me? 🧘‍♀️

10 fun experiences every family should add to their bucket list

10 fun experiences every family should add to their bucket list

The time we spend with our family is precious and fleeting. While it may feel like your little cherubs will remain small and snuggly forever, blink and before you know it they’re young adults that no longer want anything to do with mum and dad. If for no other reason than this alone, we need to make the most of every moment we spend as a family (even if the kids do have a habit of driving you up the wall!). If you are looking for fun experiences to do with the family this Autumn then check out this list. VIEW the POST

Planning a stress free family trip to Phuket

Planning a stress free family trip to Phuket

Over the years, as the children have got older, we have realised quite how stressful planning a trip abroad can be. Everything from worrying about the cots when the children were babies, to what activities there are on offer as they get older. There are so many things to think about so I thought I would capture a few helpful tips and my chosen location is Phuket (it's on my bucket list). VIEW the POST

My bucket list of things to do before I turn 40

Yes, I know I am not 40 for another 5 years but it’s Hubby’s 40th birthday next week and it’s got me thinking about all of the things I want to do before I get to that milestone. So I have been thinking about my bucket list and hopefully 5 years will be enough to achieve it. Travel, food and family fun are high at the top of my list, I would love to know if you have any good ideas (I can always add to my list). 

5 essential UK festival experiences on my bucket list

5 essential UK festival experiences on my bucket list

I love a bucket list, most of the time I do not write them down. I am one of those people that until the very last moment, everything is an opportunity. Recently I have been thinking about family festivals. We have only experienced this once with the children. It wasn't a music festival or anything, it was Blogstock. It gave us a little taster of what a bigger festival would be like. VIEW the POST

The POTTY list….

The POTTY list….

THE POTTY LIST... Or 36 Things To Do Before You’re Three So, you've heard of the Bucket List, well this is the Potty list: a guide of 36 things to do with your tot before they turn 3. It forms part of the Little One-ders’ Toddler Census, commissioned by Growingupmilkinfo.com, and has been designed to celebrate the extraordinary growth and development Little One-ders go through from 1 to 3 years. The 36 must-do activities that make up ‘The Potty List’ are: Made a mud pie Baked a cake Finger painted Sung loudly in public Climbed a big hill Picked fruit Danced with no inhibitions Made sandcastles on the beach Been chased by a monster Jumped in a puddle so hard the water went in mummy’s shoe too Belly-flopped Fed the ducks Blown bubbles Had a teddy bear’s picnic Chosen a favourite book Ridden on the top of double-decker bus Visited a museum Been on a train ride Fed an animal Grown cress in the shape of your name Worn pants on your head Ridden the tea-cups ...
