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 to tackle being a businesswoman and a Mum

How to tackle being a businesswoman and a Mum

As a mum you are probably used to juggling the jobs that you do as a mother to your children, working and maintaining a clean and tidy home. When you throw in being your own boss of a business there is even more to think about and do. It can be quite overwhelming and exhausting to try and do everything all of the time, but it is finding a good balance between being a successful business owner to spending time with your children, looking after and nurturing them. Here is some useful advice to help you on your way if you are struggling to do both.  I have to be honest, it is really tough being a businesswoman and a Mum. VIEW the POST

The best Mother’s Day gifts for 2021

I put together a list of my favourite Mother’s Day gifts for 2021. As we cannot spend time with our Mums this year, due to lockdown restrictions, (unless you are in a support bubble) I thought about some nice gifts that will keep Mum smiling and knowing she is loved…. and dearly missed! I love the effort the kids go to at Mother’s Day; they’ve always made cute things at school or we go for a nice walk and get photos of the kiddies playing. I hope you have a good Mother’s Day this year.

Self-Care as a parent can it be done?

Self-Care as a parent can it be done?

As soon as you become a parent, something kicks in and that newborn is suddenly the focus of your life. This makes a lot of sense; babies can’t fend for themselves, they can’t move, they can’t feed themselves or wash themselves, and they need to be constantly taken care of. You are responsible for every aspect of their wellbeing. Self-care is really important for your mental health. VIEW the POST

Mums need to understand the perks of playtime with toys!

I love playing with the children and their toys, we draw together, play LEGO together, dolls and cars. It’s rather therapeutic for me as their Mum as well as for the kiddies themselves. Motherhood is a lovely experience; but, at the same time, there are certain things that new mothers tend to forget! If you have more than one child, then you already know the importance of playtime! But, new Mums need to understand the perks of engaging in playtime.
