🍂 So it might just be time for the bobble hats to come out of hiding… anyone else live in hats during the colder months?

It’s been so nice to wrap up in layers of cosy jumpers, boots and jackets this week. I love “sweater weather” so much! If that made you laugh, then you’re my kinda people.

What is your go to Autumnal outfit? I’m in the need for inspiration 🍂

If I was a….

This took me forever to make but I loved doing it. I love being creative and I learnt to use CapCut which Isla absolutely loves. She squealed when I showed her this.

I have the template (which I might blog about as the one I followed wasn’t quite accurate) and I have a few sneaky ways of doing things!

I’ve loved seeing everyone else’s version of this and so I had to do my own! And I wouldn’t change a thing… 

What would you be? 🥰

Is there anything more relaxing and calming than this view? The sun setting over the sea and the calmness in the sea too.

Made me smile looking back at my Summer photos today. I’ve had a day of “cosy” as I drank far too much last night at my friends 40th party… I danced all night and walked home with bare feet. The signs of a good night!

I’ve not been out and danced in years. I literally can’t remember the last time I did that! It was a nice break from being Mum & Dad. Letting your hair down is sometimes the best medicine from a stressful few weeks.

What do you do to unwind?

I think it’s really important to love the space where you work, for you spend a long time working in it! When designing my home office area I kept thinking about what makes me happy…

I wanted a space dedicated to my desk. After working on makeshift spaces for 2 years it felt so nice to have a dedicated work space.

I wanted to be by the garden window so I can see the flowers and watch nature about it’s business. I have seen lots of birds and a few squirrels this Spring and Summer.

I wanted the right storage too. Working from home, studying and the blog all result in lots of things I need to put away. I wanted them to have a home. I’ve got the Kallax unit from IKEA with cupboards, drawers and box storage. It’s perfect!

I’ve been doing a bit of a Autumn clean in preparation for the impending season. I love Autumn, it’s my favourite and I want to start it with a clutter free office area (and mind too).

Anyone else feel more productive if their environment is less cluttered?

Everything feels a little uphill at the moment! Don’t you think?

Noah has been especially all over the place this week. One minute happy and next minute shouting at me! Because obviously it was me that stole his PE shorts after his lesson 🤷🏼‍♀️

We keep getting into conversations that just blow up. I’m not sure what is it but I’m hoping we can sort it out soon. It gets to 5 o clock and we start saying devices down, as dinner is nearly ready, and they’re behaviour changes.

I think we might have to go back to basics. Bedtime routines & no device babysitters after school. I am hoping he is tired which is causing him to feel a bit more frustrated than normal.

Lots of emotions this week. I feel sad about The Queen. A bit worried about the changes ahead. Work has been busy & I had a busy week for uni too. So maybe there’s a bit on me to just take a breathe!

Do you ever have days like this? I feel like I need a day where I’m not near other humans… 😂

💦 It feels like I lifetime ago I was watching this water baby jumping in the pool. Over and over. We played volleyball, aqua fit and did lots of swimming.

Since getting back from holiday (and now my assignment is out of the way) I’m concentrating on my fitness. I hate the way I feel and I hate the way I look! And only I can do something about it.

Not that I want to strut around on social media in my bikini or anything. But it would be nice not to feel sluggish and embarrassed about my waist.

I went for my first run in months yesterday and yoga today burnnnnnnned. My legs are on fire. Even my knees. 😂 I’m nearly 40… I need to get fit! 

No pain no gain!

Any fitness tips for me? 🧘‍♀️

#Recipe – Carrot cake with a pineapple twist

#Recipe – Carrot cake with a pineapple twist

If you want to do some Easter baking this weekend, or over the week, this is your recipe! The yummiest, moist carrot cake with a zangy cream cheese frosting, complete with carrot decorations. These are quite a bit of effort, but I think it is well worth it as they look and taste amazing. There is quite a shopping list, but I ordered all of the bits on Tesco groceries online and a neat trick is I used white chocolate chips with food colouring to complete the decoration with the orange and green which I thought was really effective. Did you know you can make a carrot cake in an Instant Pot? Fascinating! VIEW the POST

#Recipe – the best chewy chocolate cookies

#Recipe – the best chewy chocolate cookies

This is a perfect recipe for large chocolate chunk and chewy cookies. They are great for over Easter and for wrapping up in tissue paper and giving to family too. I used a large bar of chocolate and some great Tesco baking products, they do large tubs of baking powder and bicarbonate of soda which is great as we go through a lot of them. These are just two items that you need to keep in your baking cupboard for when you get the urge to bake.  VIEW the POST

#Recipe – Cajun turkey mince

This is a really tasty meal that you can make really quickly over the Easter holidays, we love it with basmati rice and natural yoghurt. You could have it with salad and new potatoes, or put it in a warm tiger bread roll with a dollop of natural yoghurt on top. It is really tasty. We used Tesco lean turkey mince to make our Cajun dish, we had never cooked with turkey mince before. It tastes a lot better and is not as greasy, I really enjoyed the dish. I prefer using turkey mince now, instead of beef. 

My very first espresso

My very first espresso

Yes, I am 31 and this is my very first espresso, call me crazy but my love for coffee is in the milk! I love milky coffee, which is why I love latte and the café au lait that Dolce Gusto do. So when I was sent my espresso bundle from Dolce Gusto I jumped with excitement at trying the new recipe, Ristretto Ardenza. VIEW the POST
