A bit late to the party, but happy 𝗠𝗼𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿’𝘀 𝗗𝗮𝘆 to all the wonderful Mums I know. Mums of humans & Mums of furbabies…⁣
⁣
𝗙𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗹𝘆 is so important. It gets you through the tough times, brings the happy times and makes you feel safe.⁣
⁣
We are all still struggling after losing both of our furbabies… but 𝘵𝘪𝘮𝘦 𝘪𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘭𝘱𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘶𝘴 𝘩𝘦𝘢𝘭 & we’re doing it 𝘁𝗼𝗴𝗲𝘁𝗵𝗲𝗿.⁣
⁣
This photo makes me smile. The last time we went to the beach together, to give Snoopy some sea air through his ears.⁣
⁣
𝗠𝘆 𝗳𝗮𝗺𝗶𝗹𝘆. My memories. I am so 𝘭𝘶𝘤𝘬𝘺 to have this lot & have my sacred memories of the furbabies.⁣

Quorn®️ challenged me to make a quick, delicious & meat free meal. 𝗤𝘂𝗶𝗰𝗸 𝗺𝗲𝗮𝗹𝘀 are perfect for lunchtimes whilst working from home. They are also perfect for family lunchtimes on a Saturday as we have little time after clubs.⁣
⁣
I used some 𝗤𝘂𝗼𝗿𝗻 𝗖𝗿𝗶𝘀𝗽𝘆 𝗡𝘂𝗴𝗴𝗲𝘁𝘀 to make a quick and tasty meal (since recording this I now use the 𝘢𝘪𝘳 𝘧𝘳𝘺𝘦𝘳 which is even quicker than the conventional oven).⁣
⁣
Being vegetarian is definitely made easier with Quorn products. They are tasty, usually quick to cook & versatile. Isla & Noah love these nuggets too, they prefer them to meat. A family bag of Crispy Nuggets lasts a long time, so they are 𝗴𝗿𝗲𝗮𝘁 𝘃𝗮𝗹𝘂𝗲.⁣
⁣
My lunch is a Quorn Crispy Nugget roll. So easy… so tasty & perfect for a quick family meal too.⁣
⁣
Quorn have an 𝘢𝘪𝘳 𝘧𝘳𝘺𝘦𝘳 𝘨𝘶𝘪𝘥𝘦 on their website now: Quorn Crispy Nuggets take 𝟭𝟬 𝗺𝗶𝗻𝘂𝘁𝗲𝘀 to cook 🙏🏻 I will put the link to the guide in my stories. ⁣
⁣
What do you cook for a quick lunchtime treat? ⁣

Happy International Women’s Day… I’m lucky enough to have grown up with independent & strong women all around me. It’s where I get my resilience & determination from.

It’s something that I want to ensure Isla has too: to be resilient is to have patience and strength. To keep a smile, even if deep down it’s painful. Determination is to have focus and passion. To keep going even if the end is not quite in sight.

I can see a lot of this in her already… she is far more confident than I ever was at 10 and she knows her own mind. Which I love.

Now I need to make sure she has self confidence, self awareness and self love. So she can endure all that life throws at her and she can listen to her body & mind to guide her. 

I love that I’m still learning things about myself on this motherhood journey: some of those things I’m learning from Isla.

I’m very proud of my baby girl 🥰

Get cleaning the air fryer with me… 🧼 A slightly different post from me tonight: a handy little tip for cleaning your air fryer.⁣
⁣
There’s something about a cleaning tip that makes cleaning that bit 𝘣𝘦𝘵𝘵𝘦𝘳. We use the air fryer everyday, we love it. Keeping it clean is important.⁣
⁣
So: ⁣
⁣
▪️ add 𝗳𝗮𝗶𝗿𝘆 𝗹𝗶𝗾𝘂𝗶𝗱 to the trays⁣
▪️ add water to 𝗰𝗼𝘃𝗲𝗿 the plates inside the tray⁣
▪️ air fry for 𝟯 𝗺𝗶𝗻𝘀⁣
⁣
If you’ve only been cooking vegetables and things like that then this is 𝘴𝘶𝘧𝘧𝘪𝘤𝘪𝘦𝘯𝘵 to clean the trays. Simply rinse and dry. ⁣
⁣
If you’ve cooked meats or food that sticks to the trays, like cheese, then give it a good wash afterwards. The air frying will have helped to release those foods!⁣
⁣

If you saw my stories yesterday you will have seen I finally got around to building my 𝗟𝗘𝗚𝗢 𝗢𝗿𝗰𝗵𝗶𝗱. It was a birthday present & I’ve been saving it for a quiet weekend.⁣
⁣
I just love it. It’ll be the only flower I can’t actually kill. I either water them too much or not enough… it makes me quite sad. I have a wisteria not doing so great at the moment, so I need tips!!⁣
⁣
Fun fact: 2 of the 4 plants you can see in this photo are real. ğ˜žğ˜©ğ˜ªğ˜¤ğ˜© 𝟸 𝘥𝘰 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘯𝘬 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘧𝘢𝘬𝘦? And I gave you a rather big clue in my first paragraph 🤣⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗼𝘄 𝗱𝗼 𝘆𝗼𝘂 𝘁𝗮𝗸𝗲 𝘁𝗶𝗺𝗲 𝗼𝘂𝘁 𝗳𝗼𝗿 𝘆𝗼𝘂𝗿𝘀𝗲𝗹𝗳? Yesterday I spent 90 minutes building my Orchid whilst watching enchanted on Disney+… it was nice as Isla hadn’t seen it before. We had a lovely snuggly Sunday. ⁣

Isla is so close to her level 6 certificate. She’s been coming on in leaps and bounds over the last few weeks… her confidence is definitely improving with her @gymfinitykids classes.

Today was awards week for Isla’s class, and I love they they dish out “part way” certificates to those who haven’t quite levelled up yet. Everyone gets a certificate. It’s so lovely.

With my discount code they waive the joining fee, which is £30, so don’t forget to use it when signing up your child to @gymfinitykids…

Poopsie Unicorn | Magic and slime making

Poopsie Unicorn | Magic and slime making

Isla received a Poopsie Unicorn to review and she was so excited. You may remember the kiddies had some fun making slime with Poopsie before. She loved the big tub and her face lit up when she saw all the blind bags included. The unicorn doll inside is super cute and is perfect as a toy alone, but you get to make magic slime on top. This is a perfect gift for any little girl.  VIEW the POST

Making our family home – Isla’s bedroom makeover

Making our family home – Isla’s bedroom makeover

As you know we moved into our new home back in January and it has been a very busy time making our family home. We finally, thankfully, managed to get the children’s bedrooms carpeted over bank holiday weekend and this kicked off a trail of events. Once the carpet was complete, we could build Isla’s new furniture and make her bedroom just right. I absolutely love her bedroom; it would have been a dream bedroom for me growing up. Isla is 7 tomorrow and what a perfect time to finish off her beautiful space.  VIEW the POST

Slime and snails…. and puppy dog tails

Slime and snails…. and puppy dog tails

My kiddies absolutely love slime at the moment, playing with it and making it. So we jumped at the chance to review two new products: Slime Factory and Gross Magic. They are great and full of slime. If you have fans of this gooeyness in your household they would be perfect for Christmas gifts.  VIEW the POST

Operation “move Isla into her own room” is a go go

You may recall many moons ago we decided to move Isla into Noah’s room. Well now it’s time for her to have her own room back. But what a palaver! When we moved Isla into Noah’s room we quickly learnt we needed bunk beds and storage for all the toys. Her old room became Daddy’s office/dressing room. So in order to get her back into her own room we had to first make room for the extra furniture we’d purchased: desk and wardrobe. It wasn’t a simple room swap.
