Anyone else feel like their bones are blocks of ice? Or is it just me. Yesterday was so mild, yet I still had my coat and bobble hat on. Today felt like I woke up in Antarctica.

I really feel the #cold and Iโ€™ve noticed that more so whilst Iโ€™ve been working from home. I think the difference in the office is that I walked around more. Walked for meetings, coffee and to speak to people. Nowadays I click to meetings and speaking to people... I wish I could click for coffee too ๐Ÿ™ˆ. Lazy!!!

So, my plan is to do more walking throughout the day. Even if I walk around the house, picking up the 98,000 odd socks that get thrown around, in between meetings; should warm me up a bit.

Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?

Despite my frozeness today I did enjoy seeing the frost this morning. It was just beautiful. The crispy autumn floor and mist across the field, it looked magical. And made me feel quite Christmassy!

Speaking of which... just over a month until Christmas ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ Whose ready?

Iโ€™ve not even started yet...๐Ÿคญ

Isla has been busy this weekend... she had a queue of customers lining up for their hair appointments. Sheโ€™s been busy since this lockdown started ๐Ÿคญ

On a more serious note, she really does love this set from @vippetsofficial . She spent ages combing their hair, styling and making them sparkle.

This set has an interactive sink, that pumps water out onto the dolls hair. It has a styling chair in the middle with a hidden drawer of accessories. And, the main surprise, the glitterizer (hair dryer dome) at the far end. You put your doll into the glitterizer and it spins around allowing the glitter to fall over the hair. (You use a special glue on the hair before hand).

This is the VIP Pets Hair Salon play set and we think itโ€™s perfect for any child who loves playing with hair. A great Christmas gift! From @zuru.toys and @vippetsofficial

We went for a walk this afternoon, without the dogs, just us hooomans! It was strange not walking with the pattering of paws, however we did walk a lot quicker. Daddy took the dogs out this morning, they canโ€™t manage more than 1 big walk a day now ๐Ÿพ 

We walked a route that involves this rather huge hill, you can see all the surrounding villages on a clear day. That sunshine was just beautiful beaming down on us. It painted the #landscape a golden colour. Everything looked so beautiful.

We managed a 2 hour walk, well just shy of, considering the kiddies complained beforehand (and we agreed a half an hour walk) I was impressed. Once theyโ€™re out they have fun and enjoy it. The thought of it doesnโ€™t appeal to them though.

Thatโ€™s how I feel about the ironing! ๐Ÿคฃ

Did anyone else get out in the Autumnal sunshine?

I love this photo. Not only because of the beautiful blue skies and fluffy clouds. The sunshine sparkling on the top of the water. And, the #boats that look like their lining up in their best formation.

But, for the fact that the kiddies are hiding a huge chain that had one end going into the sand, where the kiddies were standing, and the other attached to a boat.

They pulled the chain with all their might. Much to the amusement of Daddy and I, the kids believed that every time they pulled: they were pulling the boats towards us.

They were in-fact doing nothing of the kind and it was the tide making the boats move. Which looked like they were moving towards us.

They spent a good half an hour trying to pull a boat in. Obviously it didnโ€™t work.

It was so lovely to soak up the scene though. Itโ€™s such a beautiful view. I really love how it all fits together and the mountain hugging the edge of the water.

It would make for a very beautiful painting.

Have you ever been to Ilfracombe?

With less than 5 weeks to Christmas Day.... yes 5!! Iโ€™m starting to get organised. I have my Christmas lists on the go, wrapping paper stocking up, crafts at the ready and my 2020 Christmas mug of choice (of course).

I think weโ€™ll be putting the tree up soon, I want to wait but Iโ€™m not sure I can! It makes the house feel so cosy, with the dim twinkling lights and cute decorations.

I LOVE nutcrackers and I get an addition every year. This year itโ€™s my mug. It is in the photo but you canโ€™t see it too clearly. Iโ€™ll show him off donโ€™t you worry!

I am also so excited to announce that my Christmas advent competitions will be back this year, from 1st December, I have prizes worth over hundreds of pounds to give away! Make sure you follow #12daysofconstantchristmas so you donโ€™t miss out...

With less than 5 weeks...

May your days be filled with unplanned adventures, where the grass is green and the skies are painted with blue and white #stripes.

I do love a sky photo... ๐ŸŒค Iโ€™m hoping the sun comes out this weekend. I have a long weekend, after a longggg weekend! Iโ€™ve done more hours than Iโ€™m meant to this week, had back to back meetings and no time to think. So Iโ€™m looking forward to having a break for the next 3 days.

Walking.... familytime.... hopefully some Christmas cheer and lots of rest!

What are you doing this weekend?

Well, this pretty scene really made me #smile this evening. Iโ€™ve started to creep in a little ๐‚๐ก๐ซ๐ข๐ฌ๐ญ๐ฆ๐š๐ฌ ๐ฆ๐š๐ ๐ข๐œ and it just feels marvellous. We have the family Christmas house advent calendar sitting proudly at the fireplace, beautiful Christmas fragrances coming from my candles and diffuser and the twinkling fairy lights look so lovely against the Autumnal garland.โฃ
โฃ
Iโ€™ve started online Christmas shopping and we have a new tree being delivered soon too. I canโ€™t wait for that to arrive so I can start decorating the house and Christmas crafting my nights away! Iโ€™m making my own wrapping paper this year... well until I run out of time and then Iโ€™ll use shop bought stuff.โฃ

Speaking of crafting, the candles and diffusers are handmade. They smell ๐˜ข๐˜ฎ๐˜ข๐˜ป๐˜ช๐˜ฏ๐˜จ.

Family checklist when buying a new house

Family checklist when buying a new house

Looking for a new home is an exciting activity for families, well depending on your family of course. Some even make a trip for it. Looking at different neighbourhoods and dream houses and imagining the design and furniture to put in each room make a bond that each will definitely enjoy. But there are important details people tend to overlook because of the excitement. So here we have created a family checklist to guide you when you make the big leap into buying a new house.VIEW the POST

My top 5 tips on buying a used car

My top 5 tips on buying a used car

Now, I am in no way shape or form a car person. In fact I am one of those people that buy cars because I like the look and colour of it. I have occasionally purchased a car, quickly, which I just had to buy but it was a stop gap. I have never had the luxury of buying a new car, although I do dream about doing that one day and choosing my interiors. Last year my wonderful Grandma bought me a new, not new, car- she had the budget and I had the decision. Here are some tips I picked up:    VIEW the POST

The 2 and a half year check

Noah had his 2 1/2 year check up this morning and the health visitor made him do some things, which I’d never thought of before and I was gobsmacked. She drew a big circle and said who shall we draw and Noah shouted “Isla” at the top of his lungs, so the health visitor agreed and asked him to first draw Isla’s eyes and off he went dotting in the right place where eyes should be – she did have about 10 eyes but still he was in the right area. Next she asked him to draw some hair and off he went and drew her hair where hair should be, the same for the nose, mouth, arms and legs – I was amazed. I have never thought to ask him to do that before, I was so impressed and I can’t wait to get him to practice that every…
