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… 💛

This time 2 weeks ago we went to @rumbleliveactiongaming for their Jubilee campout. It was amazing. The campfire set up with pretty fairy lights, the moody forest atmosphere. It was just the perfect.

I find it really calming to just sit in amongst the trees with the breeze through your hair. 

We love this place and Noah’s football team are having their end of season session tomorrow. They will love it. 🌳 

I can now enjoy the weekend too as I handed my assignment in this evening. ☺️ 7 hours in total but it’s done. Phew.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

🌳 Every path that you take will inevitably be full of ups and downs. The one thing you must hold on to is that “nothing worth doing is easy”.

I needed to hear this today as I am coming to the end of the week, an assignment due and a busy week of work. The last 2 months have been a lot of uni work, I’ve had COVID and work has been extremely busy.

When I finish the assignment tomorrow, it means I will have caught up and I’ll be on track for the rest of the Summer. It takes one bit of pressure off.

This is all on top of kids, hubby, house and blog! 

📝 One trick of mine is to write a list, when I feel like I’ve got too much to think about and it helps me to “park” thoughts and focus on my priorities. 

It’s hard. But it will be so worth it when I, hopefully, get my degree. 🤞🏻

My top 5 must have list for your baby

My top 5 must have list for your baby

I have been reflecting on when the kiddies were babies a lot lately. A combination of them seemingly as tall as me and lots of people I know are having or have recently had babies. It has got me reminiscing. I always wondered what advice would be beneficial to a new Mum, that I would have benefited from myself 12 years ago. So, here’s my top 5 must have list for your baby.

How long does it take to rebuild strength following giving birth

How long does it take to rebuild strength following giving birth

Your body goes through a multitude of changes when you’re pregnant. Hormones fluctuate and your body adapts. However, following the birth, you may find that things are taking a little longer to readjust. This can be really normal. Your mind and body needs time to heal. This is why it’s best to use your maternity leave wisely. Some parents have dealt with a traumatic birth, and in this case, you may already be talking to a birth injury attorney. However, you should consider taking the time to rebuild strength, manage your time well again and above all - heal.  VIEW the POST

How to work from home with your baby

While there certainly are many perks to WFH (work from home), it can also be extremely challenging and stressful when you have a baby at home. It is wonderful to be able to see and spend much more time with the baby, but it is also difficult when you are trying to focus and concentrate, and they need so much attention. With this in mind, here are a few tips for working from home effectively with a baby.

How to prepare your existing child for a new baby

How to prepare your existing child for a new baby

Deciding to expand your family is a significant step. Looking after one child is vastly different from looking after two. Likewise, two kids seem a breeze compared to three - and so on (apparently). There are loads of things to consider before rushing into a decision like this. It's something you should think long and hard about, to be sure you're making the best decision for your family. I remember being pregnant with Isla and carrying a toddler around, it was hard work. I still cannot believe there is only 18 months between them. VIEW the POST

Key steps to take to prepare your home for a new baby

If you’re getting ready to welcome a new baby into your home, you probably feeling equal parts nervous and excited. An excellent way to dial down the anxiety is to prepare your home well in advance, so you’re not worried about this when you’re also trying to adjust to being a new parent. We started doing it around the 20 week mark, after the initial shock had worn off.
