I love the combination of beautiful landscape, mesmerising đ—čđ—¶đ—Žđ—”đ˜đ˜€ and music that just fills your heart with happy, festive, memories. ⁣

This is the second time we’ve been and it is definitely going to be our new Christmas đ˜đ—żđ—źđ—±đ—¶đ˜đ—¶đ—Œđ—». We love it!⁣

This is an hour walk snipped into 90 seconds. It really doesn’t do it justice, but hopefully given you enough of a clue to want to go and make your own traditions. ⁣

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’ve started our half term week with a bang and I think we’re going to have a lot of fun. Mostly because I’ll be in the đ—”đ—Œđ˜ 𝘁𝘂𝗯 for the entire week! Well near enough. ⁣
⁣
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

2019 photo challenge February day 16

2019 photo challenge February day 16

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 16, is "heart". My #heart is all over this weather at the moment... the sunny, cold, days are lovely. I’ve found lots of new places to walk the dogs too and that makes me feel very happy! I can’t wait to explore a little more of the new area we live with the kiddies! Wrapping up with a hat and scarf too... perfecto. #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 15

2019 photo challenge February day 15

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 15, is "together". We had a night without the kiddies last night. First time in months. Possibly years. It felt completely bizarre waking up without them today. It’s funny how you desperately yearn for a break, just to sit and drink your tea whilst it’s hot (without the kids bickering around your feet). But once you get it, it just doesn’t feel right not being #together. I love this crazy faced boy. He’s really starting to grow up and challenge behaviours now. Albeit he doesn’t question his own. I have to make sure he stops bullying his sister, keep the tantrums to a minimum but maintain his happy and loving personality. Hmmmmmm.... how do I do that?! #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 14

Today’s keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 14, is “love”. My #love… my rock…. my world… my best friend…. my strength…. my weakness…. my heart. Who has given me the best thing in the world: my children. Times get hard. But times get better. That’s the lesson I’ve learnt as we spend our 12th Valentines Day together… happy Valentine’s Day people #mummyphotoaday

2019 photo challenge February day 13

2019 photo challenge February day 13

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 13, is "red". I love seeing all the #redthis time of year... beautiful bouquets waiting to be gifted to a loved one, fun gifts and thoughtful gifts. I’m glad I have the day off on Valentine’s Day as I am going to try out my new @officialcricut_uk machine and goodies... I wonder what I’ll make! Have a super day filled with love everyone #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 12

2019 photo challenge February day 12

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 12, is "hat". To hat, or not to hat. That is the question! On a serious note though, it makes me feel frozen to my core when it’s icy cold and people do not have their hats on. Noah refuses to wear one. He must have the most cold ears. I wear my bobble hat in the house, let alone outside! It frustrates me, sometimes, that my children have strong wills. But I know that it will get them far in life if they can learn to be tolerant & patient. That should keep me busy for the next 15 years! #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 11

Today’s keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 11, is “halfterm”. Well we completely mucked up this week. Thinking it was #halfterm. Apparently for Cambridgeshire it isn’t until next week, but for Bedfordshire it is. We’re right on the border. Daddy booked Isla into a half term club for this week, in Bedfordshire and we only realised that the kids are still in school yesterday! So we had to cancel Islas dance class and try to find something for next week. Doh! On a positive note Noah had a play date and he was very happy to play after school with his friend #mummyphotoaday
