“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?

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?

How to re-organise your home after home schooling

After setting up our home school last year; pencil pots and reams of paper at the ready we need to regain our home back. The dining table is for eating on after all, not a school table. So here are some tips on how to re-organise your home after home schooling, we needed to sort everything out anyway in preparation for our new offices which are starting this month. Also, we don't want to get rid of everything as there is still that lingering worry that another lockdown could happen in the future! VIEW the POST

Organising your stationery for the Summer Break

I might be the only one that does this, but I do like to re-organise the house for the Summer Break. Buy stylish furniture to store things better, throw out old stuff and I move the children’s items around the house so they can get to them easier. With school out I like to have their favourite toys and stationery items at the ready. When I am feeling organised, I even try to put things out to encourage play the next morning. Here are some tips to get you through Summer:
