๐ŸŽ„ Please tell me Iโ€™m not the last one to start their Christmas shopping?  I started it last night (online) and Iโ€™m now panicking that I have a lot of wrapping to do and not a lot of time to do it. And more shopping to do!

Iโ€™m hoping weโ€™ll put the Christmas decorations up this Saturday too and the house will look full of life and colour again. I love the living room in the evenings, Christmas tree and garland a glow. 

Iโ€™m also excited to announce my famous #12daysofconstantchristmas giveaways are running again this year and I have some amazing prizes lined up for you. Keep an eye on the blogโ€ฆ or link tree in my bio!

So, have you started your Christmas shopping yet?

We had a fabulous evening walking around the new illuminated Christmas Trail at Wimpole NT. It was a fab way to spend Black Friday evening. I canโ€™t wait to put all of my videos together to show off just how amazing it was.

Both kids and I kept saying โ€œwowโ€ at every single turn. It looked beautiful, amazing and fascinating all at once.

The music as you walk around finished it all off perfectly. At no point throughout the walk could you miss the song. Each area played different songs too: so many wonderful Christmas songs. Itโ€™s really got us in the mood. The music is done by @sonymusicuk and we loved it!๐ŸŽ„ 

We made the most out of the independent street food vendors too: the Yorkshire pudding burritos were the most amazing thing Iโ€™ve evert eaten in my life! Noah said his pizza was amazing too ๐Ÿ•

The lodge was so beautiful ๐Ÿ˜ we wish we could have stayed longer! You get your very own car parking space and thereโ€™s a decking area with outdoor furniture too! 2 bedrooms had an ensuite and thereโ€™s a main bathroom. I also loved that there is a tv in all the bedrooms.

The kitchen was equipped with most things, Daddy cooked a yummy roast dinner and made use of the wine cooler during our stay. โฃ
โฃ
The lodges are all a stones throw from the main reception which has a bar, restaurant, cafe and shop. Thereโ€™s also a gym and indoor pool, with a fun slide and splash area for the kiddies. Thereโ€™s an outdoor park, outdoor splash zone and a pitch for basketball. โฃ
โฃ
Not only that, itโ€™s surrounded by Norfolk woodland where you can go for lovely family walks with the dogs. It was peaceful and we lucked out with the beautiful weather.โฃ

What a grey day! Itโ€™s definitely starting to look and feel Wintery. It felt like night time didnโ€™t really end today ๐Ÿ˜‚

Days like today make me happy to have things on my watch listโ€ฆ Iโ€™m loving watching Iโ€™m a celebrity each nightโ€ฆ itโ€™s bringing summery vibes to my evenings. Iโ€™ve really liked the group of people in it this yearโ€ฆ Iโ€™m sad about who left tonight though. (No spoilers).

I also finished The Crown last night, season 5, I loved it. Probably my favourite season so far. The actress who plays Diana is absolutely incredible, spot on! They all play their roles well donโ€™t get me wrong.

I know itโ€™s not a documentary but I do research the points highlighted and I also realise that some conversations will be entirely made up for the drama. However, Iโ€™ve learned a lot from The Crown. I had no idea about the heart surgeon for example, or truly understand the sacrifices The Royal Family make. It is eye opening.

What have you been watching lately?

Isnโ€™t it fresh with the cold weather comingโ€ฆ hats, gloves and winter coats are at the ready.

I have had to get the winter jumpers out for Snoopy too. His diabetes has caused his entire muscle mass to disappear. So heโ€™s just a bag of bones. Itโ€™s been quite distressing over the last few weeks as you can really feel every bone.

Rambo gave us quite a scare this week too: he collapsed twice. I wasnโ€™t prepared for it at all. I forget heโ€™s 15.5 and I need to treat him like an old dog. He is quite agile still so it is easy to forget sometimes.

He has heart disease and so Iโ€™m not allowed to walk him far, or frequently. So no more long walks for us. He can walk over to the local park and back and thatโ€™s it. Heโ€™s on meds too for his heart.

Weโ€™ve had no more episodes since and heโ€™s been at my ankles all week. Think the episode scared him as much as it did me.

Our furbabies are just so integral to our family unit. Itโ€™s been an absolute privilege to spend their retirement with them, as I work from home full time.

๐Ÿพ Does anyone else love working from home with their pets?

๐ŸŒณ Hidden amongst the whistling giants, was a small girl and her dogs. 
Venturing along the crispy path, hunting for the stenchiest bogs. ๐ŸŒณ

Isnโ€™t it amazing how a change in your routine can really spark your creativity. No rushing around from a to b today for us. We took ourselves into Norfolk Woods and had a little adventure.

The sun was glorious today too which was just ๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿป. I think weโ€™d like to stay at Norfolk Woods a lot longer than just this weekend. Itโ€™s been just what the doctor orderedโ€ฆ

Did you get some fresh air today?

About last nightโ€ฆ ๐ŸŒ 

We arrived at Norfolk Woods Resort & Spa, itโ€™s a beautiful resort with @hoseasons. 

We are staying in a dog friendly lodge and having a nice chilled weekend together.

This was the view from the lodge door last night. It was absolutely breathtaking. The clear sky and pretty sprinkling of stars. The moon shining down and the array of lodges too.

Itโ€™s nice to take a step away from the norm sometimes, you get a fresh perspective on things! 

What do you do to break up the routine?

๐Ÿฅณ A huge happy birthday to Noah, whose 12 today! I cannot believe how quickly that time has gone.

We went out for his birthday meal tonight, Pizza Express, and we had fun with SnapChat whilst we waited for dinner. It was so funny!

Cannot believe I have a 12 year old son ๐Ÿซฃ

Do you ever just play around with filters and literally not breath from laughter?

Encouraging bedtime reading with In the book

Encouraging bedtime reading with In the book

Recently, with lockdowns and a lot of life changes, we have got out of routine. Somedays seem harder than others and the children's behaviour goes from brilliant to frustrated and tired quite quickly. We have explored a lot of ways to try and bring a little more routine and happiness to our days. One of my favourite changes is bringing back bedtime reading and In the book have helped us do this.
