A throwback to 4 years ago… an impromptu moment where the kids had been given balloons 🎈 

We stopped in this field, with the buttercup blooms and sunshine setting… it was a beautiful scene.

They had me in stitches laughing at Daddy, who was encouraging them to smile for photos.

I love this photo. I remember them being so happy they had the balloons.

Do you ever look back at old photos and reminisce?

I think this might be my new favourite view… onboard my SUP! 🔵🔴

After 4.5 hours of paddling yesterday, on my first paddleboarding adventure, my thighs and shoulders have decided to disown me today. But, no pain no gain.

I’m looking forward to taking her out on some shorter trips, in the golden hours and taking a book to read on my pitstop.

I have learnt how to get the SUP inflated and deflated, I managed to fold it up into its bag too! It’s like getting a tent back in its original packaging- it never goes back exactly how it came out! 😂

My top tip for any SUP beginners is to find a slow moving river or lake to practice without a strong current.

My SUP is from @aquaplanetsup. Not an ad.
A little reel of my first paddleboard trip along the river. On my very own beautiful paddleboard too! It was meant to be pink, but the red and blue is perfect. We paddled for 4 hours in total, around the river in Cambridgeshire.

We stopped at Houghton Lock for a picnic and it was so peaceful. I love being out on the river. Albeit I was quite nervous I would fall in, I didn’t. Phew.

I did a combo of stand up paddleboarding, kneeling and sitting to get a rowing rhythm going when I needed it. The wind was against us on the way, which felt hard. But it helped on the way back.

I’m in love with days like this. So beautiful and I felt present, watching the dragonflies, butterflies and even the otters. It’s such a wonderful activity to practice mindfulness and also a spot of yoga. Lots of Table Top positions!

I can’t wait to get out on the river again! Have you tried paddleboarding before?

Devon you were amazing ☀️ We try to get down to North Devon at least once a year. We love the beaches and the beautiful villages along that stretch of coastline.

It was a great week of family time, lots of sun and sea. We felt like we had gone to Spain with the weather. Daddy and the kids camped the week before and had a stunning week of sunshine too.

I managed to read two books and I even went for a swim in the sea 😂 It was nice to have a week of doing not much.

It took us 6 hours to get home. My road trip consisted of multiple stops though as I had the dogs with me. So, I didn’t think it was that bad. Yes, I know it’s quicker to get to actual Spain 😂

Have you ever been down to Devon?

The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

Tips on how to plan for your dream holiday

Tips on how to plan for your dream holiday

It is no secret we love travelling as a family, albeit we do not go away a lot. We have been lucky to have some fantastic opportunities for family holidays over the years. This year is no exception as we are off to Dubai very soon. We are so excited. It got me thinking about how do you plan for that dream holiday? Such big decisions and a ball of excitement, it can hard to concentrate. Well, that’s how I feel.  VIEW the POST

Driving Safety checklist for tyres & road

Driving Safety checklist for tyres & road

Driving safety is crucial as even the slightest ignorance can cause serious road trouble. During a prolonged sunny spell, several aspects of a car’s performance can suffer. You will probably use more motor oil in the summer than in the winter, for example. In addition, the car battery may suffer if you use the air-conditioning for longer periods than you would at other times of the year. VIEW the POST

Preparing for that Great British Summer weather

Gardening, outdoor adventures, Summer BBQ’s and school runs that could be hot or wet, or both! It’s that time of year where you have to prepare for the Great British Summer weather. I get to about this point every year where I have a mini check-list of things I do and I thought it would be useful to share it. Whether you are spending the day inside or outside, there is a handy tip below for you:

Setting your sights: where to look for your next move

Setting your sights: where to look for your next move

Moving house is an exciting time with lots to organise, lots to do, and quite a lot to think about. You’re packing your house up and casting your eye around your city (or others sometimes) to find a place that’s right for you, but what do you look for? Anybody who has rented more than one place has had to go through the searching and applying process many times, and it’s not always fun to apply for 15 different houses and get rejected from all of them. Suburbs like Richmond, Brunswick, Yarrabend, or Kew can be alluring with their proximity to the city, but for that same reason you may end up paying higher rates. This is the same in the UK too, there are desired locations, especially near schools. To make a bit more sense of the jumble going on in your head, we’ve put together a few things ...

The essential cruise fashion checklist for Mums

The essential cruise fashion checklist for Mums

Since going on the cruise on the beautiful Carnival Vista, I have learnt a lot about what you really need to take and what you could live without. I absolutely loved some items that I purchased before we travelled, but when I realised there wasn't a lot of room in the suitcase I had to make some tough decisions. There are things that I wished I had taken and things that could have stayed at home. Here is my little cruise fashion checklist that I would suggest every Mum needs before going on a cruise: VIEW the POST

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.
