“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?

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?

Fun days out with the kids: Wimpole Estates NT

Fun days out with the kids: Wimpole Estates NT

We had a lovely afternoon at Wimpole Estates this week. We arrived just after midday and had a picnic by the main entrance, which was lovely and we spent the afternoon wondering around the grounds. It's such a lovely spot and a lot of fun for the children. You can walk for hours around the house, farm and woodland.  VIEW the POST

Keeping your children safe in the sun without staying indoors all day!

The hot summer we are currently enjoying in the UK has got us all thinking about how to enjoy the sun responsibly. It’s really hot, even when you are sitting in the house, let alone the sunshine. It is really important to have fun and keep those children safe.  There is nothing worse than sunburn and there is no more obvious sign of parenting fail than a sunburnt kid! And yet, we want our children to be out and about all summer long, enjoying adventures and the lovely warm sunshine because who knows when we’ll see the big orange ball in the sky again?

How to make sure your holiday goes smoothly

You know it’s true; you wait all year for your big summer break, planning and meticulouslydrawing up schedules, and as the date approaches and you start to pack, you often take far too many items away with you. Overpacking, and subsequently struggling with heavy luggage can make for a stressful start to timeaway, so take what you need and resist squeezing everything but the kitchen sink into your suitcases. As the date of your holiday comes ever closer, set some time aside to make a detailed list, and then to try and half that list to only include the essentials. If you’re travellingwith young children, then it’s vital to keep them happy and entertained when waiting in queues, to board flights, and when out for food, for example. What are the best ways of making sure your holiday goes smoothly? Below are four top tips to ensure you have a…
