I loved this photo of me & the old man. Despite me crying on the majority of this walk & it looks like I have a wonky eye, because of my hat… I do love it.

Snoopy is so goofy and I think this photo shows off his personality perfectly 🤣 He’s never been a sharp pup. But man is he a good snuggler…

It was a lovely walk, despite the tears, and I’m glad we explored in and around the green. Snoopy and I managed about 1500 steps in an hour. Snoopy wants a sniffathon, rather than a walk.

Anyone else love taking goofy photos of their pets?

“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?

Social Media Use Amongst Kids – Is It Healthy?

Social Media Use Amongst Kids – Is It Healthy?

Over the past few years, the world has been swept away with social media. As we become knowledge rich but time poor I think it’s evident that the vast majority of us are guilty of allowing it to play a key part in our day-to-day lives. This story is also becoming true for our children but is this healthy or should we start to be concerned? Do we need to protect our children or should we allow them to explore the world through their devices? Read on for a helpful guide that will help you gain a better understanding of the pros, cons and risks associated with social media use amongst children. VIEW the POST

BritMums Live 2013 – My "remote" experiences

BritMums Live 2013 – My "remote" experiences

Unfortunately I couldn't make BritMums Live this year, the venue looked amazing, the bloggers attending I desperately wanted to meet - but the fact I didn't attend, didn't stop me from being "involved". BritMums streamed the main parts from their website, they had a Ustream link set up which meant I could sit and watch it from my iPad. Many of the talks were tweeted about and the Social Media talk from @MummyBarrow and @MammasaurusBlog meant I could tweet my questions and get involved that way - well it wouldn't be a social media talk if it didn't focus on the social media! I spent the whole time checking my Twitter feed, Facebook news page and getting updates from @MummyBird direct to my phone - she did text me at one point to say lots of people were asking after me. I have to admit that only made me want to be ...
