This evening we had a little family scoot around our town, with a very special mission in mind.

My beautiful friend @gembro82 has started off a very long and colourful snake. The idea is you decorate a rock and add it to the snake. 🐍 Over the past 2 weeks its grown to over 400 rocks.

We loved it. It’s quite moving seeing all of these rocks, #rainbow themed or character themed. It shows just how many children are sitting at home missing their friends and that interaction.

It also demonstrates how we can support each other and work together through these daunting times.

Do you have a #SnakeRock near you? Or, do you have something similar?


This evening we had a...

Would you believe me when I tell you this was this morning? It was. It was directly in-between 2 rather scary looking rain clouds that unleashed their power!

The kiddies didn’t mind. They loved splashing around in the river, despite us warning them the weather would be changing very soon. Thankfully the blustery rain showers were short, albeit powerful.

The kiddies love this spot. They’ve asked to go every single day since they discovered it. I see it being a popular choice over the Summer.

This was taken with my phone. I am completely in #love with the camera on this phone. I love the fact I can take clear, vibrant and detailed photos whenever I have my phone with me.

Have you got a favourite spot that you visit more frequently than before lockdown?


Would you believe me when...

A great way to spend some time whilst waiting for the best delivery of your life! It was fun watching the kiddies play this game; daddy had to find the kiddies on the trampoline. I love how vibrant the colours are in this photo. Especially the #orange opening.

It seems easy but it’s quite disorienting. The kids love it. I love the anticipation of when Daddy will get them!

Our big delivery was our garden furniture. I’ll post some photos when it’s not quite so windy. The wind blew the cushions all over the place this afternoon. Our rather large patio is looking like a cosy spot to spend the summer now!

I’m hoping we’ll get in some chill time this weekend, enjoy our garden and just be safe at home.

What are you up to this weekend?


A great way to spend...

We are very excited to...

I had precisely 30 minutes of sunshine this evening to test out my new iPhone camera. I absolutely love it.

The photos I have taken are stunning. The quality of the colour and the light, the fun angles of the new lens. I took this photo by accident, I adore it.

It’s world #bee day today and when I was taking this photo all of a sudden I noticed 5 or 6 buzzing around me collecting the pollen. 🐝 They fascinate me.

I can see I am going to have a lot of fun with this new phone... Anyone else have any cool tips for the new iPhone?


I had precisely 30 minutes...

It’s Mental Health Awareness Week, this week, and the topic is KINDNESS. Kindness doesn’t cost a thing, but the effects of being kind to someone can have many benefits. I would definitely say cost vs value, value wins every time! 🤣 I think that kindness is more important at the moment as everyone needs that extra lift to make them smile.

Smiling releases hormones, endorphins, which makes us feel happy and also helps to reduce stress. So, it’s a good circle: be kind to someone - make them smile - make yourself feel happy in the process.

On Sunday Hubby showed me kindness when he took the kiddies out for a bike ride and gave me some time on my own. I needed the headspace as I’ve felt frazzled over the last 2 months. He knew that, subconsciously, and knew that taking the kiddies out would make a difference to my day. It did.

I smiled. I painted. I chilled. I felt happier.

In honour of #MentalHealthAwarenessWeek - I want to spread a little kindness in my teeny square part of the world!

Comment on this photo and I will reply to you with kind words, which will hopefully make you smile.

In a world where you can be anything, be kind.


It’s Mental Health Awareness Week,...

I find I spend most of my days, at the moment, just watching these 2. When they are friends, they are the best of friends. They have the most bizarre conversations and talk about the most random things. But I love listening to that!

One of my #projects over this lockdown period is to get our garden into tip top shape for Summer and another is to take more photos. I love taking photos, it’s my favourite hobby and I’m looking forward to trying out the new iPhone 11 camera at the end of the week.

This photo was taken with my iPhone 8 Plus. I think it takes amazing photos. So I can only imagine the 11 will be better! 💛 Have you seen my iPhoneography tips on the blog?

Do you have any Summer, lockdown, projects?


I find I spend most...

We’ve been busy little bees 🐝 today! The kiddies got through 95% of their schoolwork, yes that’s right! I was gobsmacked when I finished work. They get set weekly tasks on a Monday, then new Maths & English tasks each day. Is tomorrow they have 1 weekly task left, then it’s just Maths & English. I am so impressed. They’ve completely smashed it!

I had a productive day too, I had 2 new starters at work and had to ensure they are settled in their roles. It was different via Teams but I’m hoping I can still manage effectively remotely. It’s so hard not sitting next to people, as you just don’t know how quickly they work or how they work. I’ve got to learn to talk a bit more! I’m so happy we have a full team though! 🥂

Another 2 reasons why I’m feeling happy today: our outdoor furniture is being delivered this week (2 weeks earlier than I thought) Whoop Whoop and my iPhone upgrade is due this week. I can’t believe I’ve had my iPhone 8 Plus for 2 years! It’s the best iPhone I’ve had to date.

These guys are trying #new things in the garden too. Isla got this for her birthday. I used to love a skip ball when I was a child. And a Pogo Ball? Can anyone remember these?

Today's keyword for the October photo challenge day 31, is "Halloween". #happyhalloween everyone. I hope you enjoyed your annual spooky day of decorations, sweets and costumes. I love the fact my kiddies embrace the most random of costumes. Noah made his t-shirt. He wanted to do an Argentina themed outfit for football. Obviously. Im hoping we can make the most out of the outfits and decorations for a little while longer... #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

October photo challenge day 30 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today's keyword for the October photo challenge day 30, is "spooky". They’re creepy and they’re Kooky, mysterious and #spooky. They’re altogether ooky, the Constant family! 🎃 There are some days that I can relate to the Addams family... I feel like they fight like the kids do in the film! This is a day late, so #happyhalloween at the same time today! I hope everyone has a spooky time. #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

October photo challenge day 29 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today’s keyword for the October photo challenge day 29, is “shadow”.  Making a #shadow with our bodies whilst we stare into the open water, watching the sun beaming down. The leaves are all starting to get crispy now, with the cold settling in. Albeit still a little damp from Saturday! Sometimes it’s good to be incognito, shadow mode, I just watch. I often find myself sitting and watching other people. Mainly because body language and behaviour fascinates me and I’m quite good at reading it. I take in people’s body language better than I do their words sometimes. Especially when the two do not tally up! Do you people watch too? Or is it just me! #mummyphotoaday …

October photo challenge day 28 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today's keyword for the October photo challenge day 28, is "pumpkin".  There is something about #pumpkin picking that the children just find hilarious. That or they were trying to get their younger cousin to say Chicken Fart! I’m going with the latter... they are obsessed with the words: bum, wee, pop, bumhole and chicken fart at the moment. What’s the fascination and when will it end? I’m looking forward to Halloween fun this week... what’s everyone dressing up as? #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

October photo challenge day 27 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today's keyword for the October photo challenge day 27, is "outdoors".  What with the weather today we’ve not been #outdoors at all. Instead we’ve snuggled and made our pumpkins 🎃 I love doing something a bit different. Can anyone guess what mine is based on? The one on the far left.... hehe. Great team effort Faull’s! #mummyphotoaday VIEW the POST

October photo challenge day 26 #MummyPhotoaDay

Today’s keyword for the October photo challenge day 26, is “frost”.  It’s lovely seeing the #frost start to creep in. First thing in the morning everything is starting to get a bit crunchy. It’s certainly getting a bit chilly in the air too. I find nature amazing, all the little things it does to preserve it’s beauty. Ready for another year… it’s incredible! I feel like autumn has gone far too quickly, what with everything we’ve been through over the past month, I’m going to make the most out of the transition into Winter! 🍂 #mummyphotoaday …
