“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?

7 Simple changes you can make at home to lift your mood

7 Simple changes you can make at home to lift your mood

Most people agree with the adage that ‘home is where the heart is.’ That’s because the home is more than just a place; it’s a feeling—a collection of memories that evokes happiness and warmth. When you’re out and about, or feel stressed at work, thinking about home helps lift your mood instantly. However, with some workers still stuck in the work-at-home arrangement, staying indoors these days may just have the opposite effect. Luckily, you can make these simple changes to turn any room into a vibrant living space that’s teeming with positive vibes.     VIEW the POST

Adding flair to a playroom

Adding flair to a playroom

Having a designated space in your home for your children to play can be a wonderful idea. Not only does this give them room to create and explore the different aspects of play, but it also means you can keep toys limited to that room, meaning they are not left all over the house. While having that spare room can be helpful, you may want to jazz it up a little, so that your children really feel that the space is their own. Our kids loved having a playroom. This can be done in a number of simple ways, without needing too high a budget either. VIEW the POST

Setting up your garden for an amazing Summer of lockdown easing

One of the first purchases we bought when we finished the garden patio is our garden furniture.

There are lots of ways you can do this too, here is my plan for the next few months and how we are setting up our garden for a summer of family and friends time. VIEW the POST

Home upgrades you may have put off until now

Home upgrades you may have put off until now

Managing a household is tough and often a complex task, despite how worthwhile it is. This goes double if you have a career or a family to run, and perhaps tenfold if you’re trying to do both. No matter what you enjoy or what you think is most important about your home, you no doubt have a desire to upgrade it and to renovate or redecorate over time. That’s perfectly natural. We have enjoyed doing home upgrades in our family home over the years. VIEW the POST

What leads to a well-functioning home?

Life isn’t easy, especially if you have a family. It can feel like there’s always something that needs to be done, and that we’re always running around. While it’ll never be easy, we can always hope to make things a little easier. There are many elements that’ll contribute to this, including having a home that works for you. If you have a property that supports your family and which you can just take for granted will provide a solid base, then you’ll find it much easier to handle all of life’s responsibilities. I love these well-functioning home ideas!
