I loved this photo of me & the old man. Despite me crying on the majority of this walk & it looks like I have a wonky eye, because of my hat… I do love it.

Snoopy is so goofy and I think this photo shows off his personality perfectly 🤣 He’s never been a sharp pup. But man is he a good snuggler…

It was a lovely walk, despite the tears, and I’m glad we explored in and around the green. Snoopy and I managed about 1500 steps in an hour. Snoopy wants a sniffathon, rather than a walk.

Anyone else love taking goofy photos of their pets?

“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

How to find your joy on a child-free weekend

How to find your joy on a child-free weekend

Life is fast paced hustle and bustle, all day, every day, when you have children. They become your entire life. Everything you do either involves them, is for them, or they have to come along because there’s nowhere else for them to go. You finally have a weekend all to yourself, and now, you just don’t really know what to do. Try and remember how to do life without kids, and work some joy into your weekend with a mixture of relaxing and fun activities. Here are some great ideas for a child-free weekend. VIEW the POST

One Fine Dine a real master chef experience at home

One Fine Dine a real master chef experience at home

I absolutely adore master chef, I am in total awe of all the chefs that go on there as I literally do not have a clue. It would be a dream for me to eat at Marcus's Michelin restaurant. Obviously with lockdown, restaurants closing and finding ways to explore good food from home: I was so excited to try out One Fine Dine. They make up the most delicious food, deliver it to your door and all you have to do is heat it and serve it. I made master chef food, all by myself. OK, well I didn't cook it. It felt amazing! This is the perfect gift for for 2021. VIEW the POST

Bosworth Hall and Spa travel review

As you may have noticed across my social media channels, it was our wedding anniversary on Monday. Hubby and I had an extremely lucky opportunity. Not only did we get a weekend of no children and no pets (actual alone time). Sometimes its not all about the family activities. Sometimes you need a bit of grown up time. We got to spend our weekend at the most fantastic place, with great food and a beautiful room: Bosworth Hall and Spa. Bosworth Hall and spa is a fabulous hotel owned by Britannia Hotels. We had such a lovely weekend relaxing, but making the most out of the hotel and spa facilities. It was the perfect way to spend our anniversary weekend.

#Review – Jamie’s Pizzeria in Cambridge City

We are very lucky to live, quite near, the very beautiful Cambridge City and so when Hubby and I have a date night, that is usually where we go. At the end of April we took a trip to Cambridge to experience the new Jamie's Pizzeria which sits on top of Jamie's Italian, it was a nice evening to celebrate Hubby's new job and eat yummy pizza. It was also nice as Jamie Oliver is my husband's favourite chef and we absolutely love his recipes, this was our first trip to one of his restaurants. We were both very excited.  VIEW the POST

Effortless Date Night Style

Effortless Date Night Style

When you're a parent, you cherish the elusive date night. The busier you get, the fewer and more far between they become. And it's even less often that they come about spontaneously.VIEW the POST

Date Night

It’s not very often, but every other month or so me & hubby make the most of our time together as a couple & do Date Night! This week we went to Strada for a lovely Italian meal and drove back in the snow. Every Thursday little Noah stays at Nanny & Grandads, so we have a night to ourselves… I think it’s important that we get us time and on the other hand Noah gets time with his grandparents. It must make him independent. Because he’s been going there since he was a few months old, we’ve never had any trouble getting him to sleep anywhere. Which is good ! This was Noah asleep at Nannas & Willow thought he’d snuggle with him! 🙂 Pets are cute! Noah has the weekend with the pets & Nanny & Grandad. Lucky little boy. We’re off to enjoy a spa weekend at…
