“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?

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. 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 Jak entered the cavern to the unknown, there was…
