The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

My sunset views. The entire day spent travelling was totally worth it. Fresh sea air in my lungs…

We are all together again. Happy holiday! ☀️ 

Are you travelling around the UK this Summer?

It’s not quite the Devonshire coast, but it’s not bad for on my doorstep. Whilst Hubby has been in the sea all day with the kids, we’ve been chilling in the evening sun.

It was nice in the park as it’s soo open. The breeze cooled us down. I sat there with the dogs & it felt like we were on our own in the park. No one around. So peaceful.

Did you get out in the sun today?

When Hubby sends you a photo of your babies washing up… Isla cooked them dinner and cleaned up afterwards too. I’m impressed.

It’s lovely that they are starting to get more involved. They’re so grown up. And they look super happy too!

Are you camping this Summer?

Last night I went to see the new movie Where the Crawdads Sing and I absolutely loved it. The music, the filmography and the characters were all perfect.

It made me think about how the simple things in life are sometimes the best. The Marsh Girl learned to fend for herself and despite all the twists and turns she survived. I won’t say too much for people who are going to watch it.

It reminded me of our little spot at the lake, and how happy I am when we’re there. The kids can spend hours playing in this very spot. Just happy being. It’s a freeing feeling that we don’t often feel these days.

Have you got a favourite spot that makes you feel free?

Todays photo prompt is skies and I couldn’t resist reposting this one. I love the clouds and the pretty pattern they make and how the rock pools make everything seemed camouflage.

We’ve got 2 weeks of annual leave booked over the summer but nothing booked on it yet. Finding holidays is rather stressful at the last minute. But we’ve got the dogs sorted, thanks to my lovely friend and all we need to do now is find the right deal.

 I am looking forward to a break; I hurt my ears jumping into the lake from a 2.5 metre drop at the aqua park and my ears / head hurt. I’ve nearly finished my assignment for uni, only 1 more to go in September and then year 2 is complete. Works been very full on for the last couple of months. And, if you saw my stories, my sisters cat died suddenly in his sleep this morning. It’s devastating. I want to fix him and make it all better. It’s horrible feeling useless like that!

Let’s hope the rest of Summer brightens up and we can make happy memories.

What have you got booked over the holidays?

Into the woods this Christmas with Wayfair

Into the woods this Christmas with Wayfair

I do love a challenge. Wayfair tasked me to transform a part of my home with an "into the woods" theme, ready for Christmas. It's amazing how a small amount of items can completely transform a space. I decided to focus on the hallway and dining area as we will be hosting for a lot of guests this Christmas. Somewhere to hang coats has always been an issue and I do love a pretty dining table. I hope you enjoy the tour of my new hallway and dining area...  VIEW the POST

3 Family mini projects to start this weekend

3 Family mini projects to start this weekend

For all the busy mum’s and families out there it can get really challenging to find quality time while still managing all the other aspects and obligations of life. A great way to get in some family bonding time is to work on some small weekend projects with your spouse and kids and do a bit of DIY. There are of course, certain projects that are more geared to your pint size helpers but you may be surprised at how many small updates you can choose from to work on all together as a family. It is always recommended to find a local electrician or contractor for major home projects but for these mini projects you can round up your own troops for some family weekend fun.VIEW the POST

Interesting radiator designs to heat up your home

Interesting radiator designs to heat up your home

Luckily for us, radiator designs and innovations have come a long way in the past couple of decades and so I wanted to briefly take you through some of the standouts and their uses, just so you can see how your home could look with one of these, plus your radiator could probably do with replacing as it won’t be working as well as it did 20 years ago.

#Recipe – Carrot cake with a pineapple twist

If you want to do some Easter baking this weekend, or over the week, this is your recipe! The yummiest, moist carrot cake with a zangy cream cheese frosting, complete with carrot decorations. These are quite a bit of effort, but I think it is well worth it as they look and taste amazing. There is quite a shopping list, but I ordered all of the bits on Tesco groceries online and a neat trick is I used white chocolate chips with food colouring to complete the decoration with the orange and green which I thought was really effective. Did you know you can make a carrot cake in an Instant Pot? Fascinating!
