I think this might be my new favourite view… onboard my SUP! 🔵🔴

After 4.5 hours of paddling yesterday, on my first paddleboarding adventure, my thighs and shoulders have decided to disown me today. But, no pain no gain.

I’m looking forward to taking her out on some shorter trips, in the golden hours and taking a book to read on my pitstop.

I have learnt how to get the SUP inflated and deflated, I managed to fold it up into its bag too! It’s like getting a tent back in its original packaging- it never goes back exactly how it came out! 😂

My top tip for any SUP beginners is to find a slow moving river or lake to practice without a strong current.

My SUP is from @aquaplanetsup. Not an ad.
A little reel of my first paddleboard trip along the river. On my very own beautiful paddleboard too! It was meant to be pink, but the red and blue is perfect. We paddled for 4 hours in total, around the river in Cambridgeshire.

We stopped at Houghton Lock for a picnic and it was so peaceful. I love being out on the river. Albeit I was quite nervous I would fall in, I didn’t. Phew.

I did a combo of stand up paddleboarding, kneeling and sitting to get a rowing rhythm going when I needed it. The wind was against us on the way, which felt hard. But it helped on the way back.

I’m in love with days like this. So beautiful and I felt present, watching the dragonflies, butterflies and even the otters. It’s such a wonderful activity to practice mindfulness and also a spot of yoga. Lots of Table Top positions!

I can’t wait to get out on the river again! Have you tried paddleboarding before?

Devon you were amazing ☀️ We try to get down to North Devon at least once a year. We love the beaches and the beautiful villages along that stretch of coastline.

It was a great week of family time, lots of sun and sea. We felt like we had gone to Spain with the weather. Daddy and the kids camped the week before and had a stunning week of sunshine too.

I managed to read two books and I even went for a swim in the sea 😂 It was nice to have a week of doing not much.

It took us 6 hours to get home. My road trip consisted of multiple stops though as I had the dogs with me. So, I didn’t think it was that bad. Yes, I know it’s quicker to get to actual Spain 😂

Have you ever been down to Devon?

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?

The ultimate build your own microscope review

The ultimate build your own microscope review

Noah is obsessed with space, he knows some incredible facts. He really enjoys science too. Isla is also a huge fan of science. They both discussed how much they love maths and science at the weekend. Facts and information drives them and learning new things. They loved it when he received this Build your own microscope from Build Your Own Kits. They have a few different products including a telescope which I just know would love (great idea for Christmas). It is a great, sustainable, toy for any child and it uses less plastic - which is fantastic! VIEW the POST

5 Great things to include in a gift hamper

Sometimes it can be hard to know what to get someone for a gift, which is why creating a hamper is always a brilliant solution. I absolutely love making up a gift hamper, it's such a creative way of giving thoughtful gifts. It’s an opportunity to give your friend or relative a sample of lots of lovely things, one of which they’re bound to like. It can be fun creating these hampers, too, adding personal touches that you simply can’t get from purchasing pre-made ones or other gift items. If you’re thinking about making gift hampers for this holiday season or the next birthday coming up, here are five great things you can include in it.  VIEW the POST

Hannah the Spanner and the polar bear #ChristmasBook

I love getting the kiddies a Christmas Book, every year I put a Christmas themed story book in their Christmas Eve boxes. Well, this year I have the lovely new book in the Hannah the Spanner series: Hannah the Spanner and the polar bear. It’s a great bedtime story, especially the night before Christmas. As you know Isla is a little book worm so this is just perfect for her.
