This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.

Happy June everyone and here are the photo prompts for #mummyphotoaday, June photo challenge.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #mummyphotoaday so I can share the photos throughout the month, but so others can find you and like or comment. It really is such a lovely community.

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?

What a great #friyay it’s been! We spent the morning “washing” the food shopping, then went for a nice big walk around Godmanchester meadows. It was a beautiful walk and nice as there was a breeze which cooled us down.

Yes, I did say wash the shopping. Is anyone else doing this? I basically Zoflora all of the food shopping as I unpack it. The actual shopping process takes a lot longer and now I’ve added an extra 30 mins with the clean. We just want to be sure it’s not harbouring anything. Peace of mind if nothing else.

Then this afternoon we let the kids have movie time. They’ve been getting too hot in the garden. It is super hot in the garden, it seems to be a little sun trap. Which I’m not complaining about.

Daddy then took the kiddies to the park to play croquet and I had a snooze in the sun.

All in all it’s been a beautiful day and chilled. Probably one of my favourite Fridays.

What did you get up to?

Koo-Di Pop-Up Bassinette

Koo-Di Pop-Up Bassinette

Courtesy of Jellyfingers.co.uk, Isla was privileged to review a fantastic Koo-di Pop-Up Bassinette. Koo-di make really clever items to help us mums & dads out, their products are funky, colourful & incredibly useful. Isla was sent a very stylish, practical & innovative product: the Pop-Up Bassinette. As a family, we are always visiting friends & family, taking short breaks away & zooming of on mini holidays. So having this Pop-Up Bassinette for our 1 month old daughter came in very handy. We recently stayed in the New Forest on a short weekend break, in a B&B with just one room for all four of us (and the dogs) so having this bassinette was essential. It was compact, so didn't take up any room in the car and didn't take up much room when it is popped-up either, which was good as our room was not huge. It is really easy to put ...

WIN family tickets to Peppa Pig’s world with Jellyfingers

Courtesy of Jellyfingers an online members only savings club where members get access to fantastic discounts on everything from pregnancy through to children starting school, Mum of Three boys had a great trip to Paultons Family Theme Park and home to the amazing world of Peppa Pig, for a press preview day on my behalf (sadly I couldn’t make it!) and this is what she had to say about her day: “Paultons were revealing to the press their brand new hot ride, MAGMA. Magma being shot up into the air After 2 hours of travelling down to Hampshire we arrived to some refreshments and a chocolate cup cake in the shape of an erupting volcano, which was very much-needed and tasted yummy. Magma officially opens up to the public on the 31st March 2012. My eldest Jak who is 9 years old couldn’t wait to try it out, so myself and …
