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?

What Are Prism correction glasses?

What Are Prism correction glasses?

If you’ve ever had an eye exam, you likely have some experience with eye tests to gauge different aspects of your vision. These exams inform the optician if you need corrective lenses. It is relatively common for people to have trouble seeing either up close or far away. Correction glasses are made for certain eye conditions which we will look at more in this post. VIEW the POST

4 undeniable signs that you need reading glasses

4 undeniable signs that you need reading glasses

As we get older, even the simplest of menial tasks can become a little difficult. Age affects our joints, making it harder to move like we used to, sometimes our memories are a little unreliable and we might not have as much energy as we used to. The same can also be said for our eyes. As we age, our eyes don’t focus as easily from near to far distances, this is due to a condition called presbyopia, which is related to the lenses in our eyes becoming less flexible as we get older. It’s incredibly common, and if you think you’re developing this condition, speak with your optometrist for advice. I have worn reading glasses since my teens, I do wholeheartedly believe it is because I read in the dark as a child. VIEW the POST

A family eye test and my new glasses from Specsavers

We had our first family eye test at our local Specsavers at the end of the last year, the children had not had their eyes tested before and it had been over 7 years since I had my eyes tested too. It was definitely about time that we went to get checked out. I was really nervous about the children beforehand as I thought they would be an absolute nightmare. Like any kind of health care appointment. But I was pleasantly surprised.
