Anyone else feel like their bones are blocks of ice? Or is it just me. Yesterday was so mild, yet I still had my coat and bobble hat on. Today felt like I woke up in Antarctica.

I really feel the #cold and I’ve noticed that more so whilst I’ve been working from home. I think the difference in the office is that I walked around more. Walked for meetings, coffee and to speak to people. Nowadays I click to meetings and speaking to people... I wish I could click for coffee too 🙈. Lazy!!!

So, my plan is to do more walking throughout the day. Even if I walk around the house, picking up the 98,000 odd socks that get thrown around, in between meetings; should warm me up a bit.

Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?

Despite my frozeness today I did enjoy seeing the frost this morning. It was just beautiful. The crispy autumn floor and mist across the field, it looked magical. And made me feel quite Christmassy!

Speaking of which... just over a month until Christmas 😱🎄🎅🏼🧑🏻‍🎄🤶🏻🎁 Whose ready?

I’ve not even started yet...🤭

Isla has been busy this weekend... she had a queue of customers lining up for their hair appointments. She’s been busy since this lockdown started 🤭

On a more serious note, she really does love this set from @vippetsofficial . She spent ages combing their hair, styling and making them sparkle.

This set has an interactive sink, that pumps water out onto the dolls hair. It has a styling chair in the middle with a hidden drawer of accessories. And, the main surprise, the glitterizer (hair dryer dome) at the far end. You put your doll into the glitterizer and it spins around allowing the glitter to fall over the hair. (You use a special glue on the hair before hand).

This is the VIP Pets Hair Salon play set and we think it’s perfect for any child who loves playing with hair. A great Christmas gift! From @zuru.toys and @vippetsofficial

We went for a walk this afternoon, without the dogs, just us hooomans! It was strange not walking with the pattering of paws, however we did walk a lot quicker. Daddy took the dogs out this morning, they can’t manage more than 1 big walk a day now 🐾 

We walked a route that involves this rather huge hill, you can see all the surrounding villages on a clear day. That sunshine was just beautiful beaming down on us. It painted the #landscape a golden colour. Everything looked so beautiful.

We managed a 2 hour walk, well just shy of, considering the kiddies complained beforehand (and we agreed a half an hour walk) I was impressed. Once they’re out they have fun and enjoy it. The thought of it doesn’t appeal to them though.

That’s how I feel about the ironing! 🤣

Did anyone else get out in the Autumnal sunshine?

I love this photo. Not only because of the beautiful blue skies and fluffy clouds. The sunshine sparkling on the top of the water. And, the #boats that look like their lining up in their best formation.

But, for the fact that the kiddies are hiding a huge chain that had one end going into the sand, where the kiddies were standing, and the other attached to a boat.

They pulled the chain with all their might. Much to the amusement of Daddy and I, the kids believed that every time they pulled: they were pulling the boats towards us.

They were in-fact doing nothing of the kind and it was the tide making the boats move. Which looked like they were moving towards us.

They spent a good half an hour trying to pull a boat in. Obviously it didn’t work.

It was so lovely to soak up the scene though. It’s such a beautiful view. I really love how it all fits together and the mountain hugging the edge of the water.

It would make for a very beautiful painting.

Have you ever been to Ilfracombe?

With less than 5 weeks to Christmas Day.... yes 5!! I’m starting to get organised. I have my Christmas lists on the go, wrapping paper stocking up, crafts at the ready and my 2020 Christmas mug of choice (of course).

I think we’ll be putting the tree up soon, I want to wait but I’m not sure I can! It makes the house feel so cosy, with the dim twinkling lights and cute decorations.

I LOVE nutcrackers and I get an addition every year. This year it’s my mug. It is in the photo but you can’t see it too clearly. I’ll show him off don’t you worry!

I am also so excited to announce that my Christmas advent competitions will be back this year, from 1st December, I have prizes worth over hundreds of pounds to give away! Make sure you follow #12daysofconstantchristmas so you don’t miss out...

#mummyphotoaday

With less than 5 weeks...

May your days be filled with unplanned adventures, where the grass is green and the skies are painted with blue and white #stripes.

I do love a sky photo... 🌤 I’m hoping the sun comes out this weekend. I have a long weekend, after a longggg weekend! I’ve done more hours than I’m meant to this week, had back to back meetings and no time to think. So I’m looking forward to having a break for the next 3 days.

Walking.... familytime.... hopefully some Christmas cheer and lots of rest!

What are you doing this weekend?

May your days be filled...

Well, this pretty scene really made me #smile this evening. I’ve started to creep in a little 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐬 𝐦𝐚𝐠𝐢𝐜 and it just feels marvellous. We have the family Christmas house advent calendar sitting proudly at the fireplace, beautiful Christmas fragrances coming from my candles and diffuser and the twinkling fairy lights look so lovely against the Autumnal garland.⁣
⁣
I’ve started online Christmas shopping and we have a new tree being delivered soon too. I can’t wait for that to arrive so I can start decorating the house and Christmas crafting my nights away! I’m making my own wrapping paper this year... well until I run out of time and then I’ll use shop bought stuff.⁣
⁣
Anyone else love 𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐬 𝐜𝐫𝐚𝐟𝐭𝐢𝐧𝐠?⁣
⁣
Speaking of crafting, the candles and diffusers are handmade. They smell 𝘢𝘮𝘢𝘻𝘪𝘯𝘨. You may have seen over on my blog that Sensory Philosophy (@sensoryphilosophy), a local business in Cambridgeshire, are turning 1 tomorrow. They are offering a 10% discount on their Christmas range for the entire day! So, if you are looking to creep some Christmas magic into your living room... or getting organised with the gift buying swipe up on my stories.⁣

#gifted - I was gifted the candles, diffuser and advent calendar by @playmobil.

Beauty sleep style challenge

I was asked the question by Casper as to what pyjamas I wear, that are my favourites, that help me get a better nights sleep. The festival of sleep was on January 3 2015 and although this post is a little later, it did make me think about what makes for the perfect beauty sleep. Obviously for me, it is to not sleep in the same house as Isla, as she is the one who wakes me up in the night and at the crack of dawn.
