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?

As views go: this has to be one of my favourites. Paddleboarding, in the sunshine and on a calm river. It just looks so beautiful and really relaxes me.

I haven’t braved the paddleboard in the Winter months yet. I haven’t fallen in yet, but it would just be my luck! Have you done this before?

My other favourite views are closely followed with the beach… on a sunny day where the big fluffy clouds are floating on the horizon. And, finally, at the top of a Tor. As the views are always pretty breathtaking.

What is your favourite kind of view?

#WIN ten fabulously funky bibs

#WIN ten fabulously funky bibs

Funky Giraffe bibs are giving one of my lucky readers ten of their fabulous funky bibs. What a great prize, just in time for Easter, where bibs are needed quite frequently. Chocolate fingers, faces and furniture - if it is anything like our house. I love Funky Giraffe bibs, my little ones used to wear these when they were younger - they are very stylish and funky.

Add a little style to your home

Moodelli are a fabulous company that make some high end, stylish and pretty clever products for the home and for baby. I was really lucky to receive one of their amazing dimmer lights, which is perfect for those nights when little madam won't sleep and I have to sit and cuddle her in the middle of the night. I love those moments.  VIEW the POST

Monkey McCoy – Poco Nido Baby Shoes

Monkey McCoy sent Isla out some beautiful Poco Nido baby shoes to review. Monkey McCoy is a great website that stocks super cool clothing for kids and babies. It has been running since 2005, when Kerrie McCoy first opened the online store because she could never find a good store to find something a bit different for her children. So voila, Monkey McCoy was created. I am a huge fan of those “something different” items and I love trying cool and funky clothes on them. I have always been a fan of Poco Nido too, so I was very excited about getting Isla in these lovely and very funky baby shoes.

bizzybee – a modern mum

bizzybee – a modern mum

bizzybee sent me some great products to review, they're perfect for the modern mum - durable, fashionable and look fabulous! I was sent 3 pairs of rubber gloves to look at: ‘bizzybee multipurpose gloves with moisturiser’, ‘bizzybee multipurpose gloves’ and ‘bizzybee patterned gloves’ and I was also sent a groovy bizzybee scourer which just looks so pretty sitting on the kitchen sink and some funky bizzybee patterned cloths. I didn't want to use the scourer it was too pretty! But I did, we gave it a vigorous test on the oily pots and pans, the products were really good. I love products that are a little bit different and fun, it makes me want to do more cleaning (sad I know) but it is true. A little fun makes anything more interesting, so here's what I thought: VIEW the POST
