We had a fabulous evening walking around the new illuminated Christmas Trail at Wimpole NT. It was a fab way to spend Black Friday evening. I canโ€™t wait to put all of my videos together to show off just how amazing it was.

Both kids and I kept saying โ€œwowโ€ at every single turn. It looked beautiful, amazing and fascinating all at once.

The music as you walk around finished it all off perfectly. At no point throughout the walk could you miss the song. Each area played different songs too: so many wonderful Christmas songs. Itโ€™s really got us in the mood. The music is done by @sonymusicuk and we loved it!๐ŸŽ„ 

We made the most out of the independent street food vendors too: the Yorkshire pudding burritos were the most amazing thing Iโ€™ve evert eaten in my life! Noah said his pizza was amazing too ๐Ÿ•

The lodge was so beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ we wish we could have stayed longer! You get your very own car parking space and thereโ€™s a decking area with outdoor furniture too! 2 bedrooms had an ensuite and thereโ€™s a main bathroom. I also loved that there is a tv in all the bedrooms.

The kitchen was equipped with most things, Daddy cooked a yummy roast dinner and made use of the wine cooler during our stay. โฃ
โฃ
The lodges are all a stones throw from the main reception which has a bar, restaurant, cafe and shop. Thereโ€™s also a gym and indoor pool, with a fun slide and splash area for the kiddies. Thereโ€™s an outdoor park, outdoor splash zone and a pitch for basketball. โฃ
โฃ
Not only that, itโ€™s surrounded by Norfolk woodland where you can go for lovely family walks with the dogs. It was peaceful and we lucked out with the beautiful weather.โฃ

What a grey day! Itโ€™s definitely starting to look and feel Wintery. It felt like night time didnโ€™t really end today ๐Ÿ˜‚

Days like today make me happy to have things on my watch listโ€ฆ Iโ€™m loving watching Iโ€™m a celebrity each nightโ€ฆ itโ€™s bringing summery vibes to my evenings. Iโ€™ve really liked the group of people in it this yearโ€ฆ Iโ€™m sad about who left tonight though. (No spoilers).

I also finished The Crown last night, season 5, I loved it. Probably my favourite season so far. The actress who plays Diana is absolutely incredible, spot on! They all play their roles well donโ€™t get me wrong.

I know itโ€™s not a documentary but I do research the points highlighted and I also realise that some conversations will be entirely made up for the drama. However, Iโ€™ve learned a lot from The Crown. I had no idea about the heart surgeon for example, or truly understand the sacrifices The Royal Family make. It is eye opening.

What have you been watching lately?

Isnโ€™t it fresh with the cold weather comingโ€ฆ hats, gloves and winter coats are at the ready.

I have had to get the winter jumpers out for Snoopy too. His diabetes has caused his entire muscle mass to disappear. So heโ€™s just a bag of bones. Itโ€™s been quite distressing over the last few weeks as you can really feel every bone.

Rambo gave us quite a scare this week too: he collapsed twice. I wasnโ€™t prepared for it at all. I forget heโ€™s 15.5 and I need to treat him like an old dog. He is quite agile still so it is easy to forget sometimes.

He has heart disease and so Iโ€™m not allowed to walk him far, or frequently. So no more long walks for us. He can walk over to the local park and back and thatโ€™s it. Heโ€™s on meds too for his heart.

Weโ€™ve had no more episodes since and heโ€™s been at my ankles all week. Think the episode scared him as much as it did me.

Our furbabies are just so integral to our family unit. Itโ€™s been an absolute privilege to spend their retirement with them, as I work from home full time.

๐Ÿพ Does anyone else love working from home with their pets?

๐ŸŒณ Hidden amongst the whistling giants, was a small girl and her dogs. 
Venturing along the crispy path, hunting for the stenchiest bogs. ๐ŸŒณ

Isnโ€™t it amazing how a change in your routine can really spark your creativity. No rushing around from a to b today for us. We took ourselves into Norfolk Woods and had a little adventure.

The sun was glorious today too which was just ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป. I think weโ€™d like to stay at Norfolk Woods a lot longer than just this weekend. Itโ€™s been just what the doctor orderedโ€ฆ

Did you get some fresh air today?

About last nightโ€ฆ ๐ŸŒ 

We arrived at Norfolk Woods Resort & Spa, itโ€™s a beautiful resort with @hoseasons. 

We are staying in a dog friendly lodge and having a nice chilled weekend together.

This was the view from the lodge door last night. It was absolutely breathtaking. The clear sky and pretty sprinkling of stars. The moon shining down and the array of lodges too.

Itโ€™s nice to take a step away from the norm sometimes, you get a fresh perspective on things! 

What do you do to break up the routine?

๐Ÿฅณ A huge happy birthday to Noah, whose 12 today! I cannot believe how quickly that time has gone.

We went out for his birthday meal tonight, Pizza Express, and we had fun with SnapChat whilst we waited for dinner. It was so funny!

Cannot believe I have a 12 year old son ๐Ÿซฃ

Do you ever just play around with filters and literally not breath from laughter?

Sometimes itโ€™s the candid moments captured that make us smile the most. Those moments that you didnโ€™t plan for, didnโ€™t intend, but turned out to be a magical photo.

This is a throwback to some years ago, and when I saw it this evening it made me feel full of happy.

Weโ€™ve had a busy weekend, week so far and week to come. Noahโ€™s birthday tomorrow and weโ€™re away for the weekend which will be very exciting.

Do you love the candid photos more than the planned?

Here’s how to pick the best Cancer care policy in India

Here’s how to pick the best Cancer care policy in India

Cancer is a sensitive subject in our community. Until a few years ago, the number of people affected by this disease was relatively low. People might have heard struggles or stories about distant relatives of family or acquaintances who suffered from cancer. A fair percentage of people strongly believed that they would not get the disease. After all, they did not have a family history or visible symptoms. However, cancer tends to infect or attack in odd ways at the least expected time. Before we discuss the factors to consider when buying a cancer care policy, it is pivotal to comprehend why people might need one. VIEW the POST

8 Things the pandemic has made me appreciate this year

8 Things the pandemic has made me appreciate this year

Itโ€™s almost a year since the coronavirus pandemic struck the entire world and closed off our borders. Instead of a globalised world, the start of the new decade ushered in a regression of nations, where people get slowly killed off by a virus that we never saw coming. Despite this gloomy outlook, of course, we canโ€™t deny how the pandemic has allowed us to adapt and grow inward and reflect on the life we had and currently have amid everything thatโ€™s been going on.

Taking care of man’s best friend

Dogs are called manโ€™s best friend because they are unswervingly loyal and devoted to their owners, giving unconditional love and never letting you down. They have been working with us for centuries, as hunting dogs, ratters, sheepdogs and guard dogs to name but a few. In more recent times they have become indispensable as search and rescue dogs, drug sniffer dogs and assistance dogs. They are exceptional companions and will always brighten your day with their enthusiastic greetings. They deserve to be cared for and loved in return, and their needs are really very easily met.

Travelling with your pets: now you can!

Travelling with your pets: now you can!

Admit it: travelling with the whole family can sometimes be a pain. Even though you endlessly enjoy their company, carrying around bulky prams and coordinating your childโ€™s every move can be exhausting work. Thankfully we have got out of the pram stage now, but there are times where I wish I still had it. Most cases with our family, we mean our little furry friends too, and there are times where you wonder whether or not you could bring your pet along. VIEW the POST

Creating your dream horse with Petplan

Creating your dream horse with Petplan

I was recently contacted by Petplan, who had come up with a campaign to bring children's dream horses to life. The idea being that your little one can draw their dream horse and Petplan will have it created into a toy. They will have their very own dream horse to take home and snuggle. I thought it was a great campaign and we learnt a lot about how Petplan helps horses and their owners. VIEW the POST
