I loved this photo of me & the old man. Despite me crying on the majority of this walk & it looks like I have a wonky eye, because of my hat… I do love it.

Snoopy is so goofy and I think this photo shows off his personality perfectly 🤣 He’s never been a sharp pup. But man is he a good snuggler…

It was a lovely walk, despite the tears, and I’m glad we explored in and around the green. Snoopy and I managed about 1500 steps in an hour. Snoopy wants a sniffathon, rather than a walk.

Anyone else love taking goofy photos of their pets?

“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

Relaxing on the road – it is possible!

Relaxing on the road – it is possible!

Any experienced traveller will tell you that travelling requires a certain level of stamina, especially when out on the road. Whether you’re recovering from jetlag, feeling the impact of all those late nights, all the activities, the heat, the stress and trying not to miss your connecting flights to new destinations it’s not always easy to catch your breath!

Driving Safety checklist for tyres & road

Driving Safety checklist for tyres & road

Driving safety is crucial as even the slightest ignorance can cause serious road trouble. During a prolonged sunny spell, several aspects of a car’s performance can suffer. You will probably use more motor oil in the summer than in the winter, for example. In addition, the car battery may suffer if you use the air-conditioning for longer periods than you would at other times of the year. VIEW the POST

Keeping your little ones safe in the car #RoadSafetyWeek #Kiddicare

This week is road safety week, 21st to 27th November, and Kiddicare asked me to think about what that means to me. It made me think back to when I had my car accident: two years ago now. Luckily the children were not in the car, but did you know that you still have to replace the car seats? Recently the child booster seat law changed indicating that booster seats are now not as safe. This meant when I replaced the car seats I was able to get the right seats and keep the children safe!  

Tips for keeping the family safe on the road this Winter

Tips for keeping the family safe on the road this Winter

Winter is that time of year when the roads are slippy and icy, also there is the chance of drivers being sleepy due to long journeys and of course, there is always that element of road rage. Keeping the family safe could be as easy as avoiding the things that annoy us the most: driving whilst using a phone or tailgating for example. It really is this simple - don't do it.  VIEW the POST

Do I take responsibility for my vehicle?

Do I take responsibility for my vehicle?

Yes! Especially after the horrible accident last month, I am still trying to get my head around that and one of the big questions I asked myself was what if? What if the tyres had been bald? What if the tyres were cheap and weak? Would they have exploded causing more damage to my car? Would they have made me skid further into the car infront, causing them more damage? Mumsnet recently carried out a survey to find out what us women know about their tyres and Michelin came up with some pretty awesome myth busting facts that may have some answers to my questions.
