🍂 The leaves are starting to scatter
 it can only mean one thing: Autumn is on the way! 

I handed my assignment in
 now the waiting of whether I passed or not. It was my final one and so it’s worth 50% of the year. As you can imagine it’s pretty nerve wracking. 

A degree apprenticeship is harder than it looked. Not only do you study the academic aspects of a degree, you also do the apprenticeship side of things. Both have learning and assignments. That’s 8 a year!

On top of working full time and being a parent, oh and a blogger. Yes, it’s been a hard few years. But if we can all just cross fingers that I’ve got more than 40% on this last assignment - I’ll be so happy! đŸ€Ł

Now it’s done I can start looking forward to Autumn. It’s my favourite season and makes me so happy. I’ve got lots of exciting things to share with you over the next few weeks
 an Autumnal themed competition for one!

What do you love about Autumn? 🍂

✏ What a week
These 2 threw themselves back into đ˜€đ—°đ—”đ—Œđ—Œđ—č without any issues and completely smashed it! Isla has joined her big brother again as she started secondary school. She is still a bit nervous, it must be daunting having so many people in the year and it’s such a big school. Noah seems to have seamlessly transitioned into year 8.⁣
⁣
They’ve been told they can leave their blazers at home, due to the đ—”đ—Č𝗼𝘁𝘄𝗼𝘃đ—Č, but they’ve both worn them all day. đŸ„” I don’t know how they’ve done it.⁣
⁣
I thought it would be 𝘀𝘄đ—Č𝗼𝘁đ—Č𝗿 𝘄đ—Čđ—źđ˜đ—”đ—Č𝗿 already, not sweaty weather! Clearly chose the wrong photo prompt for mummyphotoaday! ⁣
⁣
On another note I’ve been head down studying for my very final assignment for đ˜‚đ—»đ—¶. Deadline is Tuesday, so forgive me if you do not hear from me for a few days. I am so excited to finish, it will be one of my biggest achievements. ⁣
⁣
How has your transition back to school/work or uni life been this week? ⁣

đŸ€žđŸ»â€â™€ïž Come and see a đ—±đ—źđ˜† đ—¶đ—» đ˜đ—”đ—Č đ—čđ—¶đ—łđ—Č of a gymnast by Isla! She wanted to show you the kinds of things they get up to in class and hopefully inspire some new, budding, gymnasts.⁣
⁣
𝗚𝘆đ—șđ—łđ—¶đ—»đ—¶đ˜đ˜† is a brilliant club for children to learn a new skill. Not only has Isla been learning gymnastics but also confidence. She is a different girl to what started a few years ago, she loves going to class and absolutely loves the girls in her group.⁣
⁣
I’m hoping Isla has got her level 6, which she is currently working towards. đ—”đ˜„đ—źđ—żđ—±đ˜€ week are every quarter where we get to see how close Isla is to the next level up. The girls love working towards the star of the week each class too! ⁣

Let me know if you get đ—¶đ—»đ˜€đ—œđ—¶đ—żđ—Čđ—± from seeing Isla, it would make her day

Thank you @gymfinitykids for helping Isla with her confidence and gymnastics skills.

#prgifted Isla gets her lessons partially funded in exchange for us showing you what she gets up to.
We had a chilled weekend, the last of the Summer Holidays, no plans and just us. The kids still have a few days at home this week but we wanted to start getting in a good đ—żđ—Œđ˜‚đ˜đ—¶đ—»đ—Č: bedtime and waking up!⁣
⁣
Saturday we went for a lovely walk after stuffing our faces at the Pizza Hut all you can eat buffet. The walk around the marina is so lovely, look at that 𝘀𝗾𝘆? ⁣
⁣
Sunday we spent most of the day chilling at the side of another lake, Grafham. It felt very hot with little wind, the sun was đ—Żđ—żđ—¶đ—Žđ—”đ˜. We had a mini badminton tournament & the kids bounced on the pillow.  They love it there. I finally got to take Isla to see Barbie last night too: I was gutted the Barbie box had been taken down.⁣
⁣
I do love weekends like this when it’s just chilled and there’s no rushing to get places. Now we have a couple of days to get back into a routine and prepare for 𝘀đ—Čđ—°đ—Œđ—»đ—±đ—źđ—żđ˜† school. đŸ˜± ⁣
⁣
Are you ready for the early mornings and rushing around again? ⁣

But in order to do that, you have to get really clear on what exactly confidence is, and most importantly, where it really comes from. In this article, we are going to take a look at where confidence really comes from, so that you can hope to develop it further within yourself. VIEW the POST

How dangerous is the happiest place on earth?

If you’re planning a family vacation to a theme park, like Disney World for example, you might not want to think about all that can go wrong, but at the same time, being aware of the risks is useful so you can avoid them as much as possible. I would just be so excited as it would be a dream holiday. Things that we can control ourselves to ensure the family is safe, the parks themselves are not dangerous.

The start of my 90 Day Plan challenge #thebodycoach

The start of my 90 Day Plan challenge #thebodycoach

So, I have done it. Hubby purchased the Black Friday deal last year for me but there wasn't a vegetarian option back then. So we got a refund and waited. Sure enough this year the 90 day veggie plan is out and I have officially started on my journey. This WILL be the hardest thing I have ever done in terms of fitness, as I have never really done anything like this but I am going to give this 90 day plan my best. Also, stick to it.  VIEW the POST

What kit your kids will need for your next wild swimming adventure

It’s no secret we love getting out and about in the lakes, rivers and oceans. Making sure we have the right kit is essential, especially as the whether is getting colder. When Selkie offered us some wild swimming goodies, we jumped at the chance to review them. They specialise in open water swimming clothing!
