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?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

As views go: this has to be one of my favourites. Paddleboarding, in the sunshine and on a calm river. It just looks so beautiful and really relaxes me.

I haven’t braved the paddleboard in the Winter months yet. I haven’t fallen in yet, but it would just be my luck! Have you done this before?

My other favourite views are closely followed with the beach… on a sunny day where the big fluffy clouds are floating on the horizon. And, finally, at the top of a Tor. As the views are always pretty breathtaking.

What is your favourite kind of view?

Pacapod: Changer Toy Pod for tots

Pacapod: Changer Toy Pod for tots

Over the past few months Noah has been trying and loving his toy pod, so have Mummy & Daddy. It is a great creation by Pacapod and makes life out with a toddler much, much, easier. Secure. Light. Perfectly sized. Appealing. Cute. Practical. VIEW the POST

Pacapod – Jura: Classic Style, Clever design

If you are ever looking for a clever changing bag, then look no further than PacaPod. They have an array of fantastic products that not only look fab, they are incredibly practical. What would we do without it? We were sent a beautiful blue Jura bag to review and very soon I will be giving away one of the even more beautiful cranberry designs. VIEW the POST

Nappy week: gNappies eco friendly

One cute cover. Two nappy options. We were sent some lovely gNappies to try out on little Isla and we got on with them really well, we were sent a small goddess pink gPants and gurple purple gPants with 10 gRefills. I hadn't heard of gNappies before or their concepts, but I am so glad that we were sent them to review. So what is a gPant and what are gRefills? Well I can tell you that combined they are really clever little eco friendly nappies! The difference with these nappies is that they are part reusable and part disposable, so you get to have the stylish, fashionable and funky looks with the yucky bit that you throw away! Apparently 8 million disposable nappies go into landfill in the UK everyday and they take approximately 500 years to to break down, so using gNappies and the gRefills has made me…

Nappy week: Huggies Super dry

Nappy week: Huggies Super dry

Noah uses the fabulous Super dry Huggies nappies and we have never had a bad day with them, I have had one leak that I am aware of and that was because I had left his nappy on too long and not changed it sooner! Naughty mummy. It wasn't the nappies fault, lets put it that way. The nappies are developed to keep babies dry for up to 12 hours as they have a super absorbent core and they have a new dry lock system which is fantastic. It absorbs quickly and locks away wee so that it doesn't leak. Which when you are rushing around in the day and do not have a chance to get that nappy changed quickly, its a god send! Huggies Super dry nappies start at size 3 and go up to size 6, which seems like a long way off but Noah is already on size ...

Nappy week: itti bitti – bitti tutto

Nappy week: itti bitti – bitti tutto

Isla was sent a fabulous Fuchsia bitti tutto cloth nappy, it is beautiful from feel to look. Its bright and a really vibrant colour and it felt so soft, I wanted to cuddle her like a little teddy bear when she had it on. We tend to use it at night time, we clean it and when it's ready for use again, on it goes and I get my cuddly little bear back. The bitti tutto range are very clever, they have a special system of "snaps" so that it fits babies from newborn size to 44lb (which I think is about a size 5 in disposable nappies!). You can see from the image below roughly how it works:   It has hip snaps for all 4 size settings, which are hidden under a piece of soft fabric and they help it keep its shape and fit snuggly around little leggies! As you can ...

Nappy Week: Huggies Newborn Disposable

I still cannot believe that Isla was that small that she could only just fit into a size 1 nappy, but she was! Huggies newborn range are just perfect for newborns – they do exactly what they say on the packet… Not only do they feel extremely soft, but they are designed especially for your brand new babies. The newborn range is made from Organic cotton, they have the umbilical cord cut away section, they protect against leaks and they have a wetness indicator. As you can see the newborn size 1 nappies have the umbilical cord area cut away, this is to stop the nappy from irritating your baby and to stop it from rubbing against the cord and possibly knocking it off sooner than its ready. This means that your babies cord can fall off when its ready and allows the belly button to heal naturally. The wetness…
