“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?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

Celebrating National Siblings Day with Baby Born

Celebrating National Siblings Day with Baby Born

Today is National Siblings Day, a time to celebrate those siblings you love. Or bicker with constantly if you are my two! It's nice to acknowledge your siblings I think. As we have all got older, with busier and fuller lives, it's hard to stay in touch. You grow up in each others pockets, living in the same house, doing everything together. I remember the day I went to uni. I felt completely lost. There is 10 years between me and my sister, so she was 8 when I went to university and I am pretty sure she wouldn't have known what was going on. My little ones are 18 months apart, so I can imagine they will very much be a part of each others lives growing up. It's days like today that make me feel grateful for family.  VIEW the POST

How to create a wonderful Mother’s Day

How to create a wonderful Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is the time to celebrate your mother for all that she does and has done in the past. She is the woman who raised you, loved you, taught you, and, for many, a best friend no daughter can live without. The reasons why mothers deserve to be celebrated are unless, and finding a unique and sentimental way to show how much she means to you can be difficult and, for some, frustrating. Opting for a quick gift from the Mother’s Day section shouldn’t be your first move; instead, you should cater your efforts to your mother so that you can ensure the perfect Mother’s Day. To help you, follow these tips:VIEW the POST

Have a magical Christmas at Drayton Manor

Have a magical Christmas at Drayton Manor

On Saturday we went to the opening of Drayton Manor for their Magical Christmas and, even after three years, it never fails to amaze me. I love the effort that they go to, Thomasland looks absolutely amazing and the big Christmas tree is one of my favourites. Everywhere you looked their was snow, sparkly christmas trees and everyone was dressed up in festive fashion too.  VIEW the POST

Lets celebrate world photography day #WorldPhotographyDay

Today is world photography day #WorldPhotographyDay, one of my favourite kind of days. I love taking photos and going to great, yet sometimes silly, lengths to get the best photos. There are a lot of fun articles flying around the internet today celebrating photography and the lengths phtoographers go to, to get that perfect shot. I’ve stood on tables, climbed up ladders, lay down on the floor, crawled into tight spaces all to get that perfect shot and get involved in the action. Sometimes they do not work, sometimes they do! What I love about photography, is now that I am more experienced, usually I get the photo result of what I envisioned in the first place. This is something that is quite hard to do.
