So, I may have got a bit into Happy Valley last night and lost track of time & forgot to post. I hadn’t started it but it looked like the kind of program I would like & I wasn’t wrong.

I’ve started from the first episode. So no spoilers in the comments please. Episode 3 though 😩 I didn’t expect that one…

Anyone else thoroughly hate Tommy?

This was the photo I was going to post. Our Wintery trip to the beach with our @charliemcleod1z jackets on to keep us dry and warm. We love them. It’s good to have the right equipment to enable you to get outside as much as possible. Especially on those sunny Wintery days…

I loved this photo of me & the old man. Despite me crying on the majority of this walk & it looks like I have a wonky eye, because of my hat… I do love it.

Snoopy is so goofy and I think this photo shows off his personality perfectly 🤣 He’s never been a sharp pup. But man is he a good snuggler…

It was a lovely walk, despite the tears, and I’m glad we explored in and around the green. Snoopy and I managed about 1500 steps in an hour. Snoopy wants a sniffathon, rather than a walk.

Anyone else love taking goofy photos of their pets?

“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?

November photo challenge day 30 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today's keyword for the November photo challenge day 30, is "change".  A #change is as good as a rest! We’ve certainly had a lot of that going on here lately. I’ve started my new job, Hubby starts his soon too. We’ve had health scares and lifestyle changes on top. Oh and a drastic hair cut 🥺... regardless of all of these things I feel ready to tackle the changes. I’m starting my new fitness challenge this weekend & I feel hyped, maybe that excitement will wean off after a couple of days! But anyway here’s to transformation, just like autumn is to winter!! #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

November photo challenge day 29 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today's keyword for the November photo challenge day 29, is "kindness".  #kindness doesn’t cost anything. Being able to lift someone’s day without effort or inconvenience: just by telling someone they look nice. Or they helped you. Or they did a great thing. It’s so easy to do. This is the main thing I’m trying to drill into the children at the moment. I want them to grow up understanding how important it is to be kind. To care. To mean it. Not sure if you saw on my insta feed this week, but I walked past a kid being bullied by his peers: beaten and teased. It breaks my heart. These kids have no understanding of the damage they’re doing. No thought as to how their actions affect others. And I can’t have my kiddies growing up without considering these things... I feel quite passionately about it too! You probably ...

November photo challenge day 28 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today’s keyword for the November photo challenge day 28, is “food”.  I love styling up the dining table ready for lots of festive #food… everything just looks so much more tasty when it’s surrounded with garlands and fairy lights! I’ve probably chosen the most random time to do a meal plan, but I’m determined that despite Christmas meals and my birthday with the 90 day plan – I will give it my all! Wish me luck… #mummyphotoaday

November photo challenge day 27 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today's keyword for the November photo challenge day 27, is "moon".  When I think of #moon it takes me back to this moment... I love this photo that Hubby took, my belly just reminds me of a moon with the dark background. I loved my pregnant belly. I have lots of happy memories with my big moon bumps. I used to have hot baths and watch the kids moving around. Sometimes it looked like their feet or hands would pop out of my belly button. #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

The November Birchbox is a nutcracker!

The November Birchbox is a nutcracker!

What a beauty of a box we got this month from Birchbox! I am making quite a collection of boxes now and November is by far my favourite. I love Birchbox because it is a fabulous way of discovering new products that are perfect for your beauty regime. Think; make up and cute little samples of creams, masks and lip balm to make you feel a little happier with every box.  VIEW the POST

November photo challenge day 26 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today’s keyword for the November photo challenge day 26, is “dark”.  As the nights are drawing in, to basically make the afternoon seem like an hour in time, I’m getting very excited about Christmas. The #dark drives home and the chilly weather can only mean it’s right around the corner. Does anyone else love staring up at the stars when the sky is clear? Or get mesmerised by the full moon? #mummyphotoaday
