We’re jumping into July like…. 🕶

I have lots on the agenda for July,including woodland visits, beach visits and catching up on my uni. I also have a “to read” pile that’s growing! I took my book to Centre Parcs but I didn’t read one sentence 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m looking forward to seeing all the Summery photos in July and a huge thank you to everyone that joined in with June!

We took a trip to Great Grandmas after school. It was nice to have dinner with her and the kiddies enjoyed exploring at the bottom of the garden.

I love her garden, it backs onto the river. There’s so much to see just standing here. Not to mention grandma’s beautiful garden. That rose bush is just amazing.

I love how the horizon has changed over the years. When I was a child you could see for miles. Over to Shuttleworth where the planes do their air shows.

Now, it’s all overgrown and the trees have gained a lot of height. It’s amazing how much it can change in 39 years!

Do you have a family house that’s been in your life since you were born?

The view from our sofa in the morning is the best. Squirrels, moorhens, ducks, deer and lots of birds… it’s amazing to sit here and watch them.

I love that our garden is full of trees and the lake. It’s meant we’ve seen more wildlife than normal.

We’ve been feeding the deers berries and lots of nuts and seeds for all the other animals. The squirrels are loving the peanuts!

There’s a huge family of geese here too. They have been coming for seed in the evenings.

The squirrels and deer are so tame. We’re quite shocked at how close they get. A squirrel took a peanut from my hand. Made my day!

🦌 I’m so happy; after 10 minutes of being in our lodge the deer popped up in the garden. There was 2 in total. They looked so cute. I loved their V shapes on their noses. They came about a metre close. So tame. 

We’ve made the most out of @centerparcsuk break so far. Table tennis, badminton, Bella Italia and an evening swim in the most amazing pool area ever.

I can’t wait to go in the pool tomorrow. And play more badminton 🏸 (my favourite sport).

So far, outside our back window we’ve seen the 2 deer, lots of ducks, geese, Moorhens and a heron. A few different breeds of geese too.

We also saw a tiny mouse darting all over the woodland floor in search of food. He was very cute. 🐭 

Anyone else love being surrounded by so much nature?

Todays #mummyphotoaday prompt is view. I’d love to see your favourite views! Whether that’s a landscape, person or an object.

This is one of my favourite views on a dog walking route we found near our home. The sky looks like it goes on for miles. The big yellow sun painting everything with its golden glow.

You can just see my fam in the distance walking the dogs. 🐾 

What’s your favourite view?

We made the most of Summer Solstice last night. We took Rambo for a walk and soaked up some sun and fresh air.

It’s the first time we’d all been out together for a dog walk in a long time. It’s really nice as the kids always open up and talk about random things.

I loved the colours in this photo. It was golden hour and I managed to hide the sun behind the bushes. They’re looking into the pond. Not sure Rambo understood the assignment.

Did you make it out for an evening walk?

With Summer Solstice tomorrow it’s got me reminiscing about our last trip abroad and hoping we get some super sun this year too!

I love flying. Sun. Sandy beaches. Adventures in new places. Eating new foods and meeting new people.

My favourite bit is watching the kiddies have fun together with Daddy… 💛

What’s your favourite thing about holidays?

How can I improve my confidence after an injury?

How can I improve my confidence after an injury?

Gaining a significant injury may not only harm your body. For some people, facing potential surgery or recovery time, and constant pain can lead to further issues. This may especially be the case if you sustained these injuries in an accident that wasn’t your fault or one that could have been avoided. Situations like these can be incredibly debilitating to your mental well-being. Apart from the physicality of getting better, I wanted to make sure I focussed on how to improve my confidence, as well as to help yourself move forward from the incident. VIEW the POST

Understanding personal injury claims a guide

Understanding personal injury claims a guide

Research from the Bureau of Justice Statistics has found that 60% of court trials related to personal injury claims. The extent of personal injury and the impact that it has on individuals should not be ignored. 52% of claims were found to be resulting from motor vehicle accidents, 15% from medical malpractice, 5% due to product liability, and the remaining 28% from ‘other’ causes.

Knowing your rights as a parent if your child is in hospital

It’s a topic that most parents would hopefully never need to give much thought to. Most parents would never wish to experience the fear and worry that accompanies seeing their child through a hospital stay. Recent high profile cases surrounding children with brain injury in particular have brought the conversation about parents rights into the public consciousness. It is really upsetting to hear about these stories in the news, it really got me thinking about what I would do in these situations. 

Can the brain heal itself following an injury?

Can the brain heal itself following an injury?

While the human body has a remarkable capacity to recover from injury, the brain is different from most other parts of the body. This is because brain cells cannot be repaired or replaced like other types of cells – once they are damaged or destroyed, they are gone forever. This does not mean, however, that the brain is incapable of recovering from an injury. You have to look after your mind too! VIEW the POST

Why workout injuries are a learning opportunity

Why workout injuries are a learning opportunity

Those of us who work out in order to get fitter know, as well as anyone, that there are potential drawbacks to our good intentions. The main example of this is, of course, injury. Ironically, our efforts to get in better shape and feel fitter can all too easily result in time spent rehabbing a strain, a break or a pull. VIEW the POST

What to do when injured on holiday

Going on holiday is a time of year that everyone in the family looks forward to; the one highlight of the year that they know they will be free from early morning phone calls, a mad rush to the office or school and all those stressors that make everyday living sheer hell on earth. So what happens when you finally pack up the kids, set out on your journey only to incur some sort of injury while away from home? What do you do when injured on holiday? Do you know what steps you should take?
