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?

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

#HariboShareTheScare Making our very own Halloween outfits

Who says you have to go out and buy new costumes each year? I was asked to #HariboShareTheScare with my readers this year, by Haribo, what better way to share the scare than to give my readers some fun tips on how to upcycle old clothes for Halloween costumes. I love being creative and making things, I try to make the time to do this every year. Here are my top ideas on how to make use of what you have already…  VIEW the POST

My iron-on project with Cricut Easypress 2 #ad

This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of Cricut. The opinions and text are all mine. I couldn’t wait to try the new Cricut Easypress 2, I had heard a lot about the product but never had the chance to try it. It is amazing. It’s perfect for iron-on projects and crafting up something specular. It’s a lot safer to use too. I based my design on the heart shirt found in the Cricut Design Space if you want to try your own.
