🧙‍♀️ Yay we finally made time to watch the new Hocus Pocus 2 movie and we absolutely loved it! It was a great way to kick off the countdown to Halloween. 

It was also the perfect opportunity to road test my new mug… which I absolutely adore. 

I’ve started to get the Autumn and Halloween decor out of the attic. The living room always feels full and homely at this time of year.

Two questions: 

👀 Have you noticed my little visitor to the living room?

🎥 Have you watched the new movie, what did you think? 🍿

May your autumn be full of blue skies and cool walks… bobble hats and family talks.
Fresh air in your lungs and a crunch at your feet… where the working week ends and the weekends meet!

I hope you had a lovely weekend and got out in the fresh air. I needed a chilled weekend and I feel refreshed for the week ahead. I need to get a good fitness routine going which I’m hoping to start tomorrow 🍂

🍂 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?

How to create an alliance with your kids

How to create an alliance with your kids

We’d all love for parenting to be easy. But, eventually, conflict enters the picture and every day can be a struggle. As parents, we’d love for our kids to pull their weight. But, unfortunately they can get into bad habits. And that’s what leads to arguments. Creating an alliance with your kids is a tough one to master, but it is the solution. VIEW the POST

Social Media Use Amongst Kids – Is It Healthy?

Social Media Use Amongst Kids – Is It Healthy?

Over the past few years, the world has been swept away with social media. As we become knowledge rich but time poor I think it’s evident that the vast majority of us are guilty of allowing it to play a key part in our day-to-day lives. This story is also becoming true for our children but is this healthy or should we start to be concerned? Do we need to protect our children or should we allow them to explore the world through their devices? Read on for a helpful guide that will help you gain a better understanding of the pros, cons and risks associated with social media use amongst children. VIEW the POST

It doesn't get better, it gets different

Now I don’t mean for this blog post to come across in a negative way! All I mean is that as the days progress, the children grow and life moves on – it gets different. Things were hard become easy. But new things crop up. I am so looking forward to September as Noah starts school and Isla gets her government funded free time, so my bank balance will look a lot better but with it comes more juggling and I am sure it is going to be hectic. So I took the plunge… I reduced my hours!

Working Mothers: The Essential Guide – Book Review

Working Mothers: The Essential Guide – Book Review

Being a working mother I found this book very informative, its a great relief to know that I am simply not EXPECTED to have everything done and be that perfect! I am lucky that I come from a household where hubby helps out as much as me, I rarely cook and in turn I do the other things, like clean!!! I am also lucky because I have family to help me with childcare and was extremely lucky to have the opportunity to go back to work part time (instead of full time), so I can raise our son for the majority of the week. I know I am because most of my antenatal friends and friends with young children had to go back to work full-time, but this book explores lots of options for mothers and tonnes of legal information. A whole section on "childcare", what it costs, the different options ...
