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?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

As views go: this has to be one of my favourites. Paddleboarding, in the sunshine and on a calm river. It just looks so beautiful and really relaxes me.

I haven’t braved the paddleboard in the Winter months yet. I haven’t fallen in yet, but it would just be my luck! Have you done this before?

My other favourite views are closely followed with the beach… on a sunny day where the big fluffy clouds are floating on the horizon. And, finally, at the top of a Tor. As the views are always pretty breathtaking.

What is your favourite kind of view?

We escaped the house today, in-between the rain showers, and got some much needed fresh air and family time. The Sun shone beautifully in the winter sky. 

Snoopy did so well as we walked for about 90 minutes. He had a few breaks in the waggon (did you see my stories?) and I carried him the last stretch.

It was our first family walk without our little pal, it felt wrong. I felt guilty for being out with Snoopy. But then I pictured little Rambie walking by our side and that made me smile.

Isla still cries at night time. I wish I could make her pain better. We are all still struggling to get over our loss. He really has left the biggest Jack Russell sized hole in our family.

Anyone else get out in the Winter Sun today?

I had a big surprise this evening… what I thought was a chilled pizza night with one of my friends - turned into a surprise 40th get together for pizza and Prosecco with my beautiful “yoga” friends.

We built our friendship over the last year doing yoga and I’m so glad we did. They are an amazing group of women and I’m proud to call them my friends. It’s funny as, all bar one, I knew before yoga.

We laugh. We cry. We chat. We rant. We eat. We drink. We smile.

Thank you so much ladies. I am very grateful. After receiving Rambos ashes today and losing focus, I’m glad I could cry and laugh with you all tonight.

Finding the best child friendly holiday in Turkey can be a bit daunting, so we have put these tips together. VIEW the POST

5 Tips to get kids used to wearing face masks

5 Tips to get kids used to wearing face masks

Despite promises that warmer weather would help eliminate the virus, the COVID-19 pandemic doesn’t show any signs of slowing down in the United States. As a result, more and more people are wearing cloth face masks in public to slow the spread of the virus, and that should include kids over the age of two -- especially when school starts back up again in the Autumn, at least in places where kids will be required to attend classes in person. We had to wear face masks at hospital last weekend and one thing that jumped into mind was how big it was on Noah. Making sure it is the right size is essential. VIEW the POST

How to make your garden child friendly

Kids love to run around and play outdoors, and if you have a house with a nice-looking, large garden, that’s a great opportunity to give them some extra recreational space. However, an environment like this can also be potentially dangerous to a small child, especially a more active one that likes to explore and mess with things. You will need to be responsible about this and keep a few things in check to ensure that the little ones will be able to stay out of harm’s way at all times. Here are some things you may need to consider in order to make your garden child friendly.
