So, I may have got a bit into Happy Valley last night and lost track of time & forgot to post. I hadn’t started it but it looked like the kind of program I would like & I wasn’t wrong.

I’ve started from the first episode. So no spoilers in the comments please. Episode 3 though 😩 I didn’t expect that one…

Anyone else thoroughly hate Tommy?

This was the photo I was going to post. Our Wintery trip to the beach with our @charliemcleod1z jackets on to keep us dry and warm. We love them. It’s good to have the right equipment to enable you to get outside as much as possible. Especially on those sunny Wintery days…

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?

An easy beginners guide for happy flying a drone in the UK

An easy beginners guide for happy flying a drone in the UK

I have had a lot of questions about the drone, what one I have and what I had to do to be able to fly it safely. So, I thought I would document the process I went through incase some of you are thinking about taking up this hobby for yourself. I love photography and being able to get creative with aerial photos and videos really excites me. I got the drone as a birthday gift from my husband and kiddies, I am very grateful. VIEW the POST

Things to consider when flying with the family

Things to consider when flying with the family

When flying with the family I have a few anxieties, needless to say the current position across the world is not helping me at all. We have booked flights to Dubai and we are staying with friends and yes, we have travel insurance. But I am still full of fear. I thought writing out my worries and how I have overcome them may help other families in similar positions.  VIEW the POST

Dealing with Chicken Pox abroad as a family #ChickenPox

We’ve had our fair share of illnesses this school term. It started with the good ole sickness bug and has just ended with both children having their turn with Chicken Pox. Both completely immobilising for quite different reasons. Before Noah had chicken pox I had absolutely no idea that you are prevented from flying. We booked our holiday to Greece 3 weeks before we left and Noah came down with Chicken Pox 7 days before we flew!

A day in history as the Flying Scotsman whooshed by

A day in history as the Flying Scotsman whooshed by

Today, as you may have seen all over the news, the Flying Scotsman took a trip from London's Kings Cross to York. It all started at 8:45am when I got a text from my Mumma saying she was waiting at the end of her road to see it whoosh by. Then as I got the children in the car, for the school trip, I asked "shall we go and see the special steam train?" and of course the reply was a big YES.  VIEW the POST

A guide to packing what’s important for a family holiday

So you have booked a wonderful holiday in the sun, or snow, you didn't upgrade to have the heavier luggage (which always seems to be an extra upgrade these days) and you are packing for a family holiday on limited baggage space: what do you need? That's the million dollar question isn't it? I was recently inspired by a fantastic video made by Florida 4 Less which guides you to pack your suitcase like a pro. I will definitely need this advice when packing for our cruise next year, EEK!  VIEW the POST
