I think this might be my new favourite view… onboard my SUP! 🔵🔴

After 4.5 hours of paddling yesterday, on my first paddleboarding adventure, my thighs and shoulders have decided to disown me today. But, no pain no gain.

I’m looking forward to taking her out on some shorter trips, in the golden hours and taking a book to read on my pitstop.

I have learnt how to get the SUP inflated and deflated, I managed to fold it up into its bag too! It’s like getting a tent back in its original packaging- it never goes back exactly how it came out! 😂

My top tip for any SUP beginners is to find a slow moving river or lake to practice without a strong current.

My SUP is from @aquaplanetsup. Not an ad.
A little reel of my first paddleboard trip along the river. On my very own beautiful paddleboard too! It was meant to be pink, but the red and blue is perfect. We paddled for 4 hours in total, around the river in Cambridgeshire.

We stopped at Houghton Lock for a picnic and it was so peaceful. I love being out on the river. Albeit I was quite nervous I would fall in, I didn’t. Phew.

I did a combo of stand up paddleboarding, kneeling and sitting to get a rowing rhythm going when I needed it. The wind was against us on the way, which felt hard. But it helped on the way back.

I’m in love with days like this. So beautiful and I felt present, watching the dragonflies, butterflies and even the otters. It’s such a wonderful activity to practice mindfulness and also a spot of yoga. Lots of Table Top positions!

I can’t wait to get out on the river again! Have you tried paddleboarding before?

Devon you were amazing ☀️ We try to get down to North Devon at least once a year. We love the beaches and the beautiful villages along that stretch of coastline.

It was a great week of family time, lots of sun and sea. We felt like we had gone to Spain with the weather. Daddy and the kids camped the week before and had a stunning week of sunshine too.

I managed to read two books and I even went for a swim in the sea 😂 It was nice to have a week of doing not much.

It took us 6 hours to get home. My road trip consisted of multiple stops though as I had the dogs with me. So, I didn’t think it was that bad. Yes, I know it’s quicker to get to actual Spain 😂

Have you ever been down to Devon?

How much do you think these ginormous ice creams cost? 😱

The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

My sunset views. The entire day spent travelling was totally worth it. Fresh sea air in my lungs…

We are all together again. Happy holiday! ☀️ 

Are you travelling around the UK this Summer?

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
