Bossing Monday like…. My day has been sponsored by caffeine. ☕️ This photo made me laugh as they look busy, like little entrepreneurs.

It wasn’t my usual Monday today but I managed to get through a day of work and started my end of year assignment for uni.

What did your Monday look like?

A much needed break this weekend. I’m glad the sun came out so Isla could play mermaids! ☀️

Noah’s had an adventure at this first scout camp this weekend, he’s extremely tired. And so Isla had us all to herself.

How did you spend the sunny Sunday?

💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

Renting as a family – why it’s not a bad thing

Renting as a family – why it’s not a bad thing

As a society, homeownership is seen as the ultimate goal when it comes to property. Renting is usually seen as simply a stepping stone whilst you work towards this. Well it was for us, we were renting as a family for years and only managed to buy 2 years ago. Whilst homeownership is a wonderful thing, renting is too! Renting offers many benefits for families to enjoy. VIEW the POST

If you’re a landlord, you’ll no doubt want to make sure that you keep your tenants happy. What better way to do that than to invest in some unique design ideas?

But have you considered how important it is to review how the properties you rent out are designed?

Setting your sights: where to look for your next move

Setting your sights: where to look for your next move

Moving house is an exciting time with lots to organise, lots to do, and quite a lot to think about. You’re packing your house up and casting your eye around your city (or others sometimes) to find a place that’s right for you, but what do you look for? Anybody who has rented more than one place has had to go through the searching and applying process many times, and it’s not always fun to apply for 15 different houses and get rejected from all of them. Suburbs like Richmond, Brunswick, Yarrabend, or Kew can be alluring with their proximity to the city, but for that same reason you may end up paying higher rates. This is the same in the UK too, there are desired locations, especially near schools. To make a bit more sense of the jumble going on in your head, we’ve put together a few things ...

10 Commandments to adhere to when moving house

10 Commandments to adhere to when moving house

Even if you’re the kind of person who likes to let events run their natural course, without too much planning or scrutinising, it is near impossible to move house without some degree of preparation. This is not just a major life decision, it is a complex process and, if you want to start your new adventure the right way, it is important to be organised. The below are 10 commandments I thought would be helpful for other people thinking of moving house, or in the process of. VIEW the POST
