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 đŸ„°

Get cleaning the air fryer with me
 đŸ§Œ 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 đ˜Łđ˜Šđ˜”đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜ł. We use the air fryer everyday, we love it. Keeping it clean is important.⁣
⁣
So: ⁣
⁣
â–Ș add đ—łđ—źđ—¶đ—żđ˜† đ—čđ—¶đ—Ÿđ˜‚đ—¶đ—± to the trays⁣
â–Ș add water to đ—°đ—Œđ˜ƒđ—Č𝗿 the plates inside the tray⁣
â–Ș air fry for 𝟯 đ—șđ—¶đ—»đ˜€âŁ
⁣
If you’ve only been cooking vegetables and things like that then this is đ˜Žđ˜¶đ˜§đ˜§đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜Șđ˜Šđ˜Żđ˜” 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!⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗼𝘃đ—Č đ˜†đ—Œđ˜‚ đ˜đ—żđ—¶đ—Čđ—± đ˜đ—”đ—¶đ˜€ 𝘆đ—Č𝘁?⁣

Our Great British family holiday to Dorset

Our Great British family holiday to Dorset

Now who says that you cannot have a magical Great British family holiday? We certainly did this summer, and do in most locations that we visit. But, I have to admit that we did really love this holiday in particular: the superb quality of the holiday accomodation, it's absolutely stunning location and the weather made it a completely fabulous holiday. Holidays for me are all about the memories and when I look back on the photos and videos it fills me with such warm feelings - that is what family holidays are all about. VIEW the POST

A visit to Corfe Castle, National Trust

A visit to Corfe Castle, National Trust

When we went to Dorset at the end of June, we stayed about 10 minutes from Corfe Castle, which is just an amazing piece of history on a very huge hill that you can visit and learn all about who lived in it and what they got up to and how it became the ruins that it is today. It was fascinating. The fun you can have with the National Trust too made it all the better. VIEW the POST

Enjoy Dorset holidays all year round – whatever the weather

I know a few people that are proud caravan owners currently living in the UK, there’s a certain sense of excitement behind having your own caravan this time of year – I really wish the Constants had one. Haven gave me the following information as a guide for Dorset holidays, whatever the weather and now the summer seems to be at an end, it couldn’t have come at a better time! From weeks of meticulous planning to just packing up the car and heading in whichever direction the wind takes you, nothing beats the experience of turning the everyday into a holiday. I dream of one day, hopping in the caravan or campervan and scooting around the UK there are so many beautiful places I have yet to see.
