A throwback to 4 years ago… an impromptu moment where the kids had been given balloons 🎈 

We stopped in this field, with the buttercup blooms and sunshine setting… it was a beautiful scene.

They had me in stitches laughing at Daddy, who was encouraging them to smile for photos.

I love this photo. I remember them being so happy they had the balloons.

Do you ever look back at old photos and reminisce?

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?

Learning a new skill is fun and can be beneficial

Learning a new skill is fun and can be beneficial

Most people are only trained in their student years, whether in college, institute, or university. Once we finish our studies, we often find we don’t want to study anything new.  However, constantly learning something new brings you many benefits, both personally and professionally, so it is something that you cannot stop doing and even less today, that thanks to the online training offered by the Internet, learning is open to all. I have really enjoyed learning over the past few months, some of you may know from following me on IG, I started a degree in October and I am really enjoying it, it is nice learning new skills.

Skateboarding is more than just a sport. It’s a cultural phenomenon that has influenced language, music, arts and fashion. Aside from competitive events, the sport has no rules, and this somehow has created a rebellious spirit within the skateboarding culture which has been wholeheartedly embraced by millions of youths from around the world. While UK can’t boast a large population of skateboarders yet, the interest in the sport is growing, particularly among children and young teens. Many parents worry about their child when they declare their love for skateboarding, due to the injuries associated with the sport and even sometimes with the rebellious culture that surrounds it, but fear not, here is a quick guide to get you ready if your child asks for a skateboard.
