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?

Cow & Gate Growing Up Milk

When your little ones get to a year old you can give them cow’s milk, you can give them formula milk or they may still be having breast milk. Our choice with Noah was to carry on giving him formula milk but we started to give him the Cow & Gate Growing Up Milk. Its a great formula, full of great vitamins and iron, and whats more you can actually smell the dairy from the formula. Call me crazy but it just has that smell!! Now up until Isla was born, being prepared for bedtime was a doddle, I was able to boil the kettle and prepare Noah’s bedtime milk in time, so that after his bath Noah could take his milk to bed and go straight to sleep. Now we have another edition to the family, the chance of being any kind of prepared is another matter. I often…

There’s a lot on your toddlers’ plate

There’s a lot on your toddlers’ plate

From 12 months old, our toddlers will change rapidly as they learn to walk, talk and master many of the skills needed for life. Growingupmilkinfo.com is a website to help parents find out more about toddler nutrition, giving mums and dads the information they need to support their toddler during this amazing period of growth and development. To recognise this important period, Growing Up Milk Info has even re-named toddlers as ‘Little One-ders’. It’s not surprising that our Little One-ders need the right nutrition to support them during this extraordinary period of growth and development. By drinking two 150ml beakers of Growing Up Milk, a fortified milk drink for toddlers, you can help provide them with the extra nutrients they need, as part of a healthy balanced diet. However, Growing Up Milk Info research reveals that 78 per cent of parents think their toddler’s dietary needs are being met ...
