This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.


🌾 I adore this photo!...

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!


We went out with a...

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?


Yeah for the #weekend!! It...

What a great #friyay it’s been! We spent the morning “washing” the food shopping, then went for a nice big walk around Godmanchester meadows. It was a beautiful walk and nice as there was a breeze which cooled us down.

Yes, I did say wash the shopping. Is anyone else doing this? I basically Zoflora all of the food shopping as I unpack it. The actual shopping process takes a lot longer and now I’ve added an extra 30 mins with the clean. We just want to be sure it’s not harbouring anything. Peace of mind if nothing else.

Then this afternoon we let the kids have movie time. They’ve been getting too hot in the garden. It is super hot in the garden, it seems to be a little sun trap. Which I’m not complaining about.

Daddy then took the kiddies to the park to play croquet and I had a snooze in the sun.

All in all it’s been a beautiful day and chilled. Probably one of my favourite Fridays.

What did you get up to?


What a great #friyay it’s...

Grab the boots for the little ones from MandM Direct

Noah loves his football club sessions, he looks forward to charging about on a Wednesday evening and now looks forward to doing this with Daddy. Daddy has started coaching the little ones too. It's nice that they have a hobby that they enjoy together. Noah is getting faster, better and more agile with the ball and it really shows each week.  VIEW the POST

A little bit of Christmas inspiration…

A little bit of Christmas inspiration…

I must admit I have little Noah's birthday to celebrate this weekend and the thought of Christmas is looming in the shadows of that but it hasn't stopped me starting to prepare: decorations, advent calendars and yummy Christmas recipes, along with some Christmas crafts that we can all get involved in over the festive period. I have put a collaboration of bits together to help inspire those of you who want to get started with the shopping but not sure where to start! VIEW the POST

Norfolk has a new crab in town: Colin!

Family business Gone Crabbing was launched in 2008 by Susie Mason. Inspired by both her home county of Norfolk and all our beautiful British coastal resorts, she has created a humorous and imaginative range of gifts and clothing which embraces all things “beachy”.  I just love this brand, beautiful designs and great quality and the website is one of the best looking websites I have come across in a long time. …

A little bit of "soft" goes a long way…

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. I was told that Asda are running a campaign at the moment which supports the charity "Tommy's" which are a fantastic charity who are funding research into stillbirth, miscarraige and premature babies. So whilst I am rushing to buy my fabric conditioner I got to help support such a great charity too. It made me reflect back on when I was pregnant with both of my little ones, the rush to grab our Persil and Comfort and to make sure all the little clothing items were sparkly clean and terrifically soft. My children are 3 and 2 now, but I still worry about how soft the towels are and how clean their nursery clothes are - so many bugs and illnesses need to be killed off when they get home. I worry no less ...

A bit of fun in our healthy lunchboxes

A bit of fun in our healthy lunchboxes

This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone. All the posts recently and social media feeds have been focussed on back to school, my little ones are a little young for that but this time next year I will preparing my to do lists and stocking up on lunch items and school uniform. It got me thinking back to when I was at school and what my mumma used to pack in my school lunches, Capri-Sun popped to mind. I used to love them and now I can share that with my children, they love them too. Not only are they fun but they make for healthy lunchboxes and they are refreshing too, what could be a better choice for lunch? VIEW the POST
