Happy International Women’s Day
 I’m lucky enough to have grown up with independent & strong women all around me. It’s where I get my resilience & determination from.

It’s something that I want to ensure Isla has too: to be resilient is to have patience and strength. To keep a smile, even if deep down it’s painful. Determination is to have focus and passion. To keep going even if the end is not quite in sight.

I can see a lot of this in her already
 she is far more confident than I ever was at 10 and she knows her own mind. Which I love.

Now I need to make sure she has self confidence, self awareness and self love. So she can endure all that life throws at her and she can listen to her body & mind to guide her. 

I love that I’m still learning things about myself on this motherhood journey: some of those things I’m learning from Isla.

I’m very proud of my baby girl đŸ„°

Get cleaning the air fryer with me
 đŸ§Œ A slightly different post from me tonight: a handy little tip for cleaning your air fryer.⁣
⁣
There’s something about a cleaning tip that makes cleaning that bit đ˜Łđ˜Šđ˜”đ˜”đ˜Šđ˜ł. We use the air fryer everyday, we love it. Keeping it clean is important.⁣
⁣
So: ⁣
⁣
â–Ș add đ—łđ—źđ—¶đ—żđ˜† đ—čđ—¶đ—Ÿđ˜‚đ—¶đ—± to the trays⁣
â–Ș add water to đ—°đ—Œđ˜ƒđ—Č𝗿 the plates inside the tray⁣
â–Ș air fry for 𝟯 đ—șđ—¶đ—»đ˜€âŁ
⁣
If you’ve only been cooking vegetables and things like that then this is đ˜Žđ˜¶đ˜§đ˜§đ˜Șđ˜€đ˜Șđ˜Šđ˜Żđ˜” to clean the trays. Simply rinse and dry. ⁣
⁣
If you’ve cooked meats or food that sticks to the trays, like cheese, then give it a good wash afterwards. The air frying will have helped to release those foods!⁣
⁣
𝗛𝗼𝘃đ—Č đ˜†đ—Œđ˜‚ đ˜đ—żđ—¶đ—Čđ—± đ˜đ—”đ—¶đ˜€ 𝘆đ—Č𝘁?⁣

It's been so lovely to see everyone commenting and asking questions, it has been a popular post in the Frenchic Facebook Group, I posted it in there as I painted my cupboards using Frenchic first. Here are some other tips I have discovered whilst doing DIY at home, that you may find useful. VIEW the POST

Making our own little Gnomes with Cath Kidston

Making our own little Gnomes with Cath Kidston

Over Easter, Cath Kidston stores across the UK invited customers to participate in Gnome painting workshops. To celebrate Easter and to also celebrate the new Gnome Cath Kidston print, which is really cute and perfect for green fingered folk! We were sent a craft pack with our very own Gnomes to paint and sparkle, also some beautiful aprons - including the Gnome print apron.  VIEW the POST

Creating a storytime corner in a little girls bedroom

When Dulux sent me this storytime theme idea for a child’s bedroom, I knew instantly that it would be perfect for little Isla and her love of stories. It turned out just how I visioned it, with her little Ollie and Leila bean bag chair in the corner. The perfect storytime corner for a little girl who can discover who she is and what she’s passionate about. She loves reading and I wanted to encourage that.

Muckypups…

Noah loves Muckypups at the local childrens centre and this week I managed to get some piccies of him with all the things he loves… ball pools, bricks, cars and eating paint, a typical boy! oh and this week involved cuddling a baby doll which I’ve posted about separately! Noah always goes straight to the ball pool, bricks or car table. No matter what, it’s guaranteed. Isn’t it amusing how he has gone for boy things!! I know the ball pool is a general play thing but balls are very boyish. He loves it though. I love the way Noah socialises with the other tots, he watches them very closely, especially at song time 🙂 he loves singing at home time! He watches in ore at all the other children spinning and singing along with the play group leader. I wonder what he’s thinking? Is he contemplating how he does…
