The view from our sofa in the morning is the best. Squirrels, moorhens, ducks, deer and lots of birds… it’s amazing to sit here and watch them.

I love that our garden is full of trees and the lake. It’s meant we’ve seen more wildlife than normal.

We’ve been feeding the deers berries and lots of nuts and seeds for all the other animals. The squirrels are loving the peanuts!

There’s a huge family of geese here too. They have been coming for seed in the evenings.

The squirrels and deer are so tame. We’re quite shocked at how close they get. A squirrel took a peanut from my hand. Made my day!

🦌 I’m so happy; after 10 minutes of being in our lodge the deer popped up in the garden. There was 2 in total. They looked so cute. I loved their V shapes on their noses. They came about a metre close. So tame. 

We’ve made the most out of @centerparcsuk break so far. Table tennis, badminton, Bella Italia and an evening swim in the most amazing pool area ever.

I can’t wait to go in the pool tomorrow. And play more badminton 🏸 (my favourite sport).

So far, outside our back window we’ve seen the 2 deer, lots of ducks, geese, Moorhens and a heron. A few different breeds of geese too.

We also saw a tiny mouse darting all over the woodland floor in search of food. He was very cute. 🐭 

Anyone else love being surrounded by so much nature?

Todays #mummyphotoaday prompt is view. I’d love to see your favourite views! Whether that’s a landscape, person or an object.

This is one of my favourite views on a dog walking route we found near our home. The sky looks like it goes on for miles. The big yellow sun painting everything with its golden glow.

You can just see my fam in the distance walking the dogs. 🐾 

What’s your favourite view?

We made the most of Summer Solstice last night. We took Rambo for a walk and soaked up some sun and fresh air.

It’s the first time we’d all been out together for a dog walk in a long time. It’s really nice as the kids always open up and talk about random things.

I loved the colours in this photo. It was golden hour and I managed to hide the sun behind the bushes. They’re looking into the pond. Not sure Rambo understood the assignment.

Did you make it out for an evening walk?

With Summer Solstice tomorrow it’s got me reminiscing about our last trip abroad and hoping we get some super sun this year too!

I love flying. Sun. Sandy beaches. Adventures in new places. Eating new foods and meeting new people.

My favourite bit is watching the kiddies have fun together with Daddy… 💛

This time 2 weeks ago we went to @rumbleliveactiongaming for their Jubilee campout. It was amazing. The campfire set up with pretty fairy lights, the moody forest atmosphere. It was just the perfect.

I find it really calming to just sit in amongst the trees with the breeze through your hair. 

We love this place and Noah’s football team are having their end of season session tomorrow. They will love it. 🌳 

I can now enjoy the weekend too as I handed my assignment in this evening. ☺️ 7 hours in total but it’s done. Phew.

What are you looking forward to this weekend?

🌳 Every path that you take will inevitably be full of ups and downs. The one thing you must hold on to is that “nothing worth doing is easy”.

I needed to hear this today as I am coming to the end of the week, an assignment due and a busy week of work. The last 2 months have been a lot of uni work, I’ve had COVID and work has been extremely busy.

When I finish the assignment tomorrow, it means I will have caught up and I’ll be on track for the rest of the Summer. It takes one bit of pressure off.

This is all on top of kids, hubby, house and blog! 

📝 One trick of mine is to write a list, when I feel like I’ve got too much to think about and it helps me to “park” thoughts and focus on my priorities. 

It’s hard. But it will be so worth it when I, hopefully, get my degree. 🤞🏻

Keeping your body fit after your workout #Tempur

Keeping your body fit after your workout #Tempur

Obviously getting fit is all about raising your heart rate and completing exercise. In whatever capacity that be in, I prefer classes where I have someone to motivate me constantly. Some people like to go to the gym alone or long runs, training for a distance goal for example. But it's not just that exercise that is important, its before and after too, you should always look after yourself. Getting the right mattress for starters and Tempur have a great range. My fitness goals for the year are to maintain a steady pattern of exercise doing the things I enjoy. But to also make sure I look after my body when I am not working out. VIEW the POST

Number 1 reason why you need to upgrade your mattress

Number 1 reason why you need to upgrade your mattress

A well-rested parent is a caregiver who’s “up for anything” – this is a lesson I’ve learned after becoming a Mummy. When I sleep well, I have so much energy to face whatever challenges the next day may bring. Rest is essential mainly when your children are very active, and you need to keep up with them. Husband too! If you’re sleep deprived, you simply won’t be up to the task. Maybe it's time to upgrade your mattress. VIEW the POST

How to relax with 5 simple techniques

Everyone has dreams. Everyone has ambitions. Working extra-long hours to achieve those dreams might seem like no big deal, but the stress you’re taking on can hurt you. Stress is not only painful, but it can also wreak havoc on our mental health. You need to know how to relax and unwind at any moment you can get, because a stressed mind isn’t going to help you get your work done.

Making sure these long Summer days do not effect the children’s sleep

Making sure these long Summer days do not effect the children’s sleep

Summer is very much here, hopefully I am not the only parent to be suffering from the "daylight at bedtime, therefore it cannot be bedtime" issue with the children? The long days mean that darkness hits around 9:30pm, which is far too late for the kiddies to be going to bed. There is an answer to this though: blackout blinds! They are a must have for any child's bedroom, completely magic. VIEW the POST

My sleeping patterns, favourite dreams and getting sleep-fit

My sleeping patterns, favourite dreams and getting sleep-fit

The past couple of weeks I have been so tired, I literally just want to sleep all of the time. There is a lot of pressure in my life at the moment and our family holiday could not have come at a better time. With my most recent patterns I have not been remembering my dreams so much - I think this is because I have been having a lot of deep sleeps. When I do remember them I love looking them up. Keeping fit and getting the right amount of sleep to cope with the stresses of the day is hard work - I call this sleep-fit! VIEW the POST
