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?

Understanding the different types of foster care

Understanding the different types of foster care

Contrary to most people’s understanding, there are various different types of foster care placements. When I was younger I always said to myself, if I couldn't have children I would be a foster carer. They make such a difference to children's lives and give them a better start in life. The different types of placement we organise are listed below. The differing types of foster care placement, suit different foster carers. It can be useful to have a good understanding of these different placements so that you can ensure a good match between you, your availability and resources, and the child’s needs.VIEW the POST

Celebrating National Siblings Day with Baby Born

Celebrating National Siblings Day with Baby Born

Today is National Siblings Day, a time to celebrate those siblings you love. Or bicker with constantly if you are my two! It's nice to acknowledge your siblings I think. As we have all got older, with busier and fuller lives, it's hard to stay in touch. You grow up in each others pockets, living in the same house, doing everything together. I remember the day I went to uni. I felt completely lost. There is 10 years between me and my sister, so she was 8 when I went to university and I am pretty sure she wouldn't have known what was going on. My little ones are 18 months apart, so I can imagine they will very much be a part of each others lives growing up. It's days like today that make me feel grateful for family.  VIEW the POST

Siblings – February

I have another reason to take photos of my beautiful children, yes another, the siblings photo linky from dearbeautifulboy. Isla is such a tear away that getting her to pose for photos and have enough time for a photo to be taken is quite tricky. But I think we have some lovely ones so far in February... VIEW the POST

Isla – 1 Year and 1 Month

I couldn't resist but display Isla's beautiful photos taken by Daddy, Custardface Photography, last month. She looks incredibly cute and as you can see she is getting better at performing for the camera. VIEW the POST
