A much needed break this weekend. I’m glad the sun came out so Isla could play mermaids! ☀️

Noah’s had an adventure at this first scout camp this weekend, he’s extremely tired. And so Isla had us all to herself.

How did you spend the sunny Sunday?

💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

A Little Explorers city break at 100 Queen’s Gate London

We were asked by the fabulous 100 Queen's Gate hotel in Kensington, London, to try out their new Little Explorers package as a family. Think "hotel stay that's all about the children" and you are close. It was a beautiful hotel and we had a fabulous weekend. If you are looking for a city break with the kids, then you must check out this fabulous family deal at 100 Queen's Gate hotel. VIEW the POST

How to avoid the panic of getting to the airport on time

How to avoid the panic of getting to the airport on time

I do not get anxious about many things. When it comes to flying I absolutely love it, I get far too excited and cannot contain myself. I love watching the planes all take off, trying to work out which plane is ours and clock watching until the gates open. I do, however, have one fear when it comes to flying and that is getting to the airport on time. After all of the issues I have had with booking the flights, I do not need to add to this list.

5 essential UK festival experiences on my bucket list

I love a bucket list, most of the time I do not write them down. I am one of those people that until the very last moment, everything is an opportunity. Recently I have been thinking about family festivals. We have only experienced this once with the children. It wasn’t a music festival or anything, it was Blogstock. It gave us a little taster of what a bigger festival would be like.

A perfume masterclass with Lights by TENA at the Haymarket Hotel #FeelFresh

You may remember at the end of January I had an incredible #FeelFresh experience in London, thanks to Lights by TENA. They pulled out all the stops to make sure we had a day "feeling fresh" and learning how to make our own fragrance. It was a really great day and I got to meet some lovely bloggers. It was nice to take a day out and try something new: with a glass of champagne in my hand most of the day. VIEW the POST

Bosworth Hall and Spa travel review

Bosworth Hall and Spa travel review

As you may have noticed across my social media channels, it was our wedding anniversary on Monday. Hubby and I had an extremely lucky opportunity. Not only did we get a weekend of no children and no pets (actual alone time). Sometimes its not all about the family activities. Sometimes you need a bit of grown up time. We got to spend our weekend at the most fantastic place, with great food and a beautiful room: Bosworth Hall and Spa. Bosworth Hall and spa is a fabulous hotel owned by Britannia Hotels. We had such a lovely weekend relaxing, but making the most out of the hotel and spa facilities. It was the perfect way to spend our anniversary weekend. VIEW the POST

An afternoon of tea and cake to remember

As some of you may have seen, Carnival Cruise Lines took the Fun Seeking Mummies for afternoon tea to the very luxurious The Berkeley hotel in Knightsbridge yesterday. It was a great opportunity to meet the other bloggers taking part again, discuss the cruise details and the plans for when we are aboard our fabulous holiday. It’s amazing how close it seems to the day we set sail.
