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?

Everything feels a little uphill at the moment! Don’t you think?

Noah has been especially all over the place this week. One minute happy and next minute shouting at me! Because obviously it was me that stole his PE shorts after his lesson 🤷🏼‍♀️

We keep getting into conversations that just blow up. I’m not sure what is it but I’m hoping we can sort it out soon. It gets to 5 o clock and we start saying devices down, as dinner is nearly ready, and they’re behaviour changes.

I think we might have to go back to basics. Bedtime routines & no device babysitters after school. I am hoping he is tired which is causing him to feel a bit more frustrated than normal.

Lots of emotions this week. I feel sad about The Queen. A bit worried about the changes ahead. Work has been busy & I had a busy week for uni too. So maybe there’s a bit on me to just take a breathe!

Do you ever have days like this? I feel like I need a day where I’m not near other humans… 😂

A stress free Christmas Dinner with COOK

I have been super lucky this weekend as I got to try out a stress free Christmas Dinner with COOK and have a practice run before the big day. We shared our yummy meal with friends and had a lovely Sunday eating delicious food, that took a grand total of 70 minutes to cook. I couldn’t believe how delicious the food was, how easy it was to cook and the quality of it all.

Making the best vegan gravy over the Christmas period

Daddy has mastered the vegan gravy recipe by Jamie Oliver and this year he made a big batch up just before Christmas so that we could freeze it. It is the yummiest gravy I have ever tasted that I am confident even meat eaters would find it delicious. It's a win win as everyone can eat it. VIEW the POST
