“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?

2019 photo challenge February day 10

2019 photo challenge February day 10

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 10, is "fun". We had a bit of #fun on our cold and windy dog walk this afternoon. Despite Noah complaining that it was taking him away from YouTube & Minecraft! We went to see the cows and they loved saying hello to the dogs again. Apparently cows like bread, so we’re going to take them some bread next time. I’m hoping after a few visits they’ll learn to trust us... after our walk we went to see Alita at the cinema but after 15 mins we realised it was a bit too dark for a 6 yr old girl and we left. Cineworld gave us tickets to go back another time though which was amazingly kind of them... #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 9

2019 photo challenge February day 9

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 9, is "castle". We spent the day at Berkeley #castle yesterday for our beautiful friends wedding. It was amazing. Not only because we could see her get married to her lobster, but the theme of the wedding was awesome and the setting, incredible. The groomsmen were all dressed in Viking style - they had big fur hooded robes on and swords. It looked very fitting in the great big castle rooms. We had a tour of the castle too, as part of the day, which was really interesting. Turns out King Edward 2 was held prisoner in a cell at this very castle, the last 2 photos. Apparently this features in Danny Dyers show a right royal family. There was so much history in this castle. It fascinated me. #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 8

Today’s keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 8, is “end”. This week hasn’t had the #end that I wanted. Little lady has got this dreaded cold that everyone seems to have at the moment. She’s been fighting it all week but yesterday it won and she’s been a teary, tired mess since she got home from school yesterday. She’s been at home with me today. I hate seeing my babies so poorly. She slept all afternoon and I really hope it’s gone so she can enjoy the weekend. #mummyphotoaday

2019 photo challenge February day 7

2019 photo challenge February day 7

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 7, is "snow". I love the #snow. I seem to be the only one that cheers when we get a snow warning. I was a bit disappointed with our sprinkling last week, however I’m hopeful that we’ll have a white March like last year. We had lots of snow back then and it was fun building snowmen and sledging across the fields! For now I’m happy with the warmer weather so that my little lady gets better. She’s got this dreaded cold that everyone seems to have. She came out of school crying her eyes out today. Boo. #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 6

2019 photo challenge February day 6

Today's keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 6, is "scarf". Who doesn’t love a big blanket #scarf? They are just perfect for this time of year. I wear them at work and it actually works as a blanket when I’m sat at my desk! Nothing better than being nice and snug whilst the bitter wind is biting at your nose. Do you have a favourite scarf? By the way: how windy is it today? #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

2019 photo challenge February day 5

Today’s keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 5, is “cold”. I’m loving the new SS19 collection on the @fitflop website. Especially these comfortable trainers that come in a few different colours. I might have to get some more! I love it when you find a brand that makes consistently comfortable footwear. I’ve got 3 pairs of #fitflops now and they are all extremely comfy. They are great for when I do my workouts, in this #cold weather it’s good to workout as it makes me feel warm and happy again. Albeit the thought of the workout, at the beginning, does not make me feel happy. What are your comfy workout trainers? I’d love to hear more…. #ad #shoppinglinks #mummyphotoaday
