I loved this photo of me & the old man. Despite me crying on the majority of this walk & it looks like I have a wonky eye, because of my hat… I do love it.

Snoopy is so goofy and I think this photo shows off his personality perfectly 🤣 He’s never been a sharp pup. But man is he a good snuggler…

It was a lovely walk, despite the tears, and I’m glad we explored in and around the green. Snoopy and I managed about 1500 steps in an hour. Snoopy wants a sniffathon, rather than a walk.

Anyone else love taking goofy photos of their pets?

“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

Convincing the kids to throw out old toys

Convincing the kids to throw out old toys

There will come a time in the year, most likely after Christmas, where you will want to start thinking about having a clear out at home. We did this last weekend and I asked the children to choose some fabulous toys to take to charity, to help make another child's Christmas a happy one. You will want to get rid of your old possessions and pieces of furniture, ready to make room for all the new things you received during the festive season. However, when it comes to clearing out your home, you will also want to get the kids involved and get rid of their old toys.VIEW the POST

Mindful Monsters encouraging the little ones to be in the present #MindfulMonsters

Mindful Monsters encouraging the little ones to be in the present #MindfulMonsters

Scope have launched a fabulous and fun campaign this week: Mindful Monsters, to help encourage our little ones to be mindful. Mindfulness is all about being in the present, the now. It is really easy to do, look I will show you: take a deep breath and count to three, then breathe out again. That was you being in the present, thinking about your breathing. It's something I have learnt at the age of 34, I am really pleased to hear that there is a push to encourage children to be more mindful.  VIEW the POST

Saturday 23 April 2016

The night finally arrived, my husband and his friends, who make up Dads Behaving Badly, put on a fantastic charity fancy dress disco and raised so much money for Regain. I felt really proud and had an absolute fantastic evening!

Did you know there is a Christmas Jumper Day coming soon? This is all to help raise money for Save the Children, it is the third year running and they've raised more than £1.6 million to date. VIEW the POST

A little bit of "soft" goes a long way…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I was told that Asda are running a campaign at the moment which supports the charity “Tommy’s” which are a fantastic charity who are funding research into stillbirth, miscarraige and premature babies. So whilst I am rushing to buy my fabric conditioner I got to help support such a great charity too. It made me reflect back on when I was pregnant with both of my little ones, the rush to grab our Persil and Comfort and to make sure all the little clothing items were sparkly clean and terrifically soft. My children are 3 and 2 now, but I still worry about how soft the towels are and how clean their nursery clothes are – so many bugs and illnesses need to be killed off when they get home. I worry no…
