đŸ’» Guess who’s got a đ—±đ—Č𝗮𝗿đ—Čđ—Č? Oh yes, that is me. Over 3 years of hard work has led me to this and I feel so proud of myself. Starting a degree during Covid and homeschooling children and working is just insane when I think back.⁣
⁣
All that study time means I have a BSc Hons in đ— đ—źđ—»đ—źđ—Žđ—Čđ—șđ—Čđ—»đ˜ đ—Łđ—żđ—źđ—°đ˜đ—¶đ—°đ—Č. I love that this is a universal degree, it means I can use it whatever my future holds. ⁣
⁣
As it’s an apprenticeship, through my employer, I still have some work to do to finish off. But my certificate is en route
 the hard work is done. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my employer giving me time to study and Hubby for giving me the space to work into the evenings and weekends. It’s a lot of time. And I will be forever grateful. ⁣
⁣
I love learning and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, as I left uni at 20 without my 𝗟𝗼𝘄 degree. It was my biggest regret leaving so close to the end. But I’ve done it now and that’s the main thing. ⁣

Rambo was terrified of them, he would shake and not eat for days around this time of year. I often made him a den somewhere, so he could hide. It’s not nice seeing your đ—łđ˜‚đ—żđ—Żđ—źđ—Żđ—¶đ—Č𝘀 go through that. So we’ve never really embraced this occasion by going to a firework event. ⁣
⁣
Instead we sit and watch them from the glass windows, where we’re warm and safe. I raised a glass of đ—łđ—¶đ˜‡đ˜‡ to my furbabies up in heaven tonight. The night sky was deep blue and clear so I could see the beautiful stars inbetween the fireworks. ⁣

We are staying in this đ—œđ—Œđ—± - it’s pretty cool and compact. It looked a bit different than the lodges on the site. I’ll show you around in my stories over the week. ⁣

We’ve been swimming, for a đ˜„đ—źđ—»đ—±đ—Č𝗿 around the site and we are busy planning the rest of our half term. ⁣
⁣
We’ve never stayed in the south of Devon before, so we’re looking forward to exploring and finding new places. Ps it took us 6 hours to 𝘁𝗿𝗼𝘃đ—Čđ—č down here! I’m hoping the trip home is a bit quicker

5 Craft projects you’ll love to get into as new Mum

5 Craft projects you’ll love to get into as new Mum

Motherhood is beautiful. Motherhood is divine. Motherhood is fulfilling. But it is also a painful, exhausting, and difficult recovery process that every new mother has to go through to get back on track with other equally important aspects of her life, such as her career, physical health, mental wellbeing, and friends & family. While all of them are recommended to take a complete rest, relax at home, and take care of their physical health, there are many other ways a new mother can de-stress, especially if they are interested in creating art. These would fulfill their artsy bug while helping them feel at ease.  I loved taking on craft projects when I became a Mum. VIEW the POST

The brand new Cricut Joy machine #AddALittle Family

I love getting creative and ever since I have been introduced to Cricut I have never looked back. Being able to cut different materials, draw on designs and even iron on designs is just amazing. I have made a lot of projects over the years. Today the all new Cricut Joy machine was released and it is so cute. Cricut tasked me with my own word, so I can #AddALittle "something" to my projects. My word is FAMILY. I love it. I have lots of plans to make lots of fab things to #AddALittle Family to my projects. VIEW the POST

5 photo craft ideas that make perfect gifts for Easter

I love making gifts for people, whether that is crochet or paper craft. I thought I could extend this to Easter and make some cool gifts using photos. We love taking photos and I love turning them into gifts for special people. Finding the perfect prints online is essential as you want to find somewhere that can print a range of products. You can make anything really, from cushions with photos on them to photo books, or craft up something yourself.

Christmas crafts for the little ones from Baker Ross

Christmas crafts for the little ones from Baker Ross

As you may have read we went away to West Yorkshire the other weekend with a group of friends. It was a fabulous weekend break full of outdoor fun and indoor fun too. What's better than crafting with the little ones, listening to the log fire cracking in the background and drinking a nice warm cuppa. The children spent a good couple of hours decorating their Christmas tree ornaments and colouring in their window decorations. They loved it.   VIEW the POST

Children’s autumn crafts for rainy days #BRCraftClub

Autumn is my favourite season, mainly because you get a great mixture of indoor and outdoors. When it’s not raining, we wrap up warm and go outside – collecting leaves or twigs. If it’s raining then we tend to stay inside and do arts and crafts (sticking and glueing as Isla calls it) and when we have these days, Baker Ross comes to the rescue.
