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?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

As views go: this has to be one of my favourites. Paddleboarding, in the sunshine and on a calm river. It just looks so beautiful and really relaxes me.

I haven’t braved the paddleboard in the Winter months yet. I haven’t fallen in yet, but it would just be my luck! Have you done this before?

My other favourite views are closely followed with the beach… on a sunny day where the big fluffy clouds are floating on the horizon. And, finally, at the top of a Tor. As the views are always pretty breathtaking.

What is your favourite kind of view?

Moving the children to a new school #backtoschool

Moving the children to a new school #backtoschool

You may have seen on some of my Instagram Stories that we took the decision, after a few months of being in our new house, to move the kiddies to a new school. It is not a decision we made lightly as Isla loved her school and was attached to her teacher. We didn't want to disrupt them unnecessarily but we feel that this move will do them good. And, the new uniform looks SUPER cute! VIEW the POST

A small change can have a huge impact: Chapter one – Morning routine

A small change can have a huge impact: Chapter one – Morning routine

This post is basically a big "tip" for those of you that struggle to get out of the house in the morning, whether that is for work or the school run in-between. I have been struggling for months in a cycle that literally started off my day in a frustrated, built up way that effected the rest of the day to come. I am pretty sure the children really didn't like it either. I made one change, to begin with and it changed my entire mood. VIEW the POST

What every parent on the school run dreads!

What is THE most worrying thing about the school run? That school run dread? For me it is the children running off ahead, in the midst of heads and coats, long socks and black shoes… they’re gone! I had that today for the first time and I have never been more scared in my life. I thought Isla was gone, it is amazing how I immediately felt consumed with guilt that it was my fault. It is not something I want to endure again in a hurry, I am sure the children feel the same.
