Devon you were amazing ☀️ We try to get down to North Devon at least once a year. We love the beaches and the beautiful villages along that stretch of coastline.

It was a great week of family time, lots of sun and sea. We felt like we had gone to Spain with the weather. Daddy and the kids camped the week before and had a stunning week of sunshine too.

I managed to read two books and I even went for a swim in the sea 😂 It was nice to have a week of doing not much.

It took us 6 hours to get home. My road trip consisted of multiple stops though as I had the dogs with me. So, I didn’t think it was that bad. Yes, I know it’s quicker to get to actual Spain 😂

Have you ever been down to Devon?

The views yesterday were absolutely stunning. Woolacoombe you didn’t disappoint. 

The sea was so calm, which I loved but the kiddies wanted waves to bodyboard through. I actually went in the sea. It was quite warm in the shallows.

As the sun reached near its setting place the reflection on the sea was mesmerising. I could have sat there all evening.

More beach days please 🙏🏻 Have you been to the beach this Summer?

My sunset views. The entire day spent travelling was totally worth it. Fresh sea air in my lungs…

We are all together again. Happy holiday! ☀️ 

Are you travelling around the UK this Summer?

It’s not quite the Devonshire coast, but it’s not bad for on my doorstep. Whilst Hubby has been in the sea all day with the kids, we’ve been chilling in the evening sun.

It was nice in the park as it’s soo open. The breeze cooled us down. I sat there with the dogs & it felt like we were on our own in the park. No one around. So peaceful.

Did you get out in the sun today?

When Hubby sends you a photo of your babies washing up… Isla cooked them dinner and cleaned up afterwards too. I’m impressed.

It’s lovely that they are starting to get more involved. They’re so grown up. And they look super happy too!

Are you camping this Summer?

The benefits of understanding early toddler development

The benefits of understanding early toddler development

Human development is a fascinating subject that is still being studied so that we can fully understand how we as a species develop. The most important part of development for a person is during the formative years when we are younger and are growing at the fastest rate humans ever experience. When your baby is transitioning to a toddler there are a number of things you are going to want to be aware of regarding their development. VIEW the POST

Draytons magical Christmas

Draytons magical Christmas

Last weekend we took a trip to Drayton Manor for their wonderful, magical Christmas opening at Thomasland in Tamworth, and what a fabulous time we had: snow falling sessions, fat controller songs, Rosie train rides, fascinating lights and lots of fun on the little ones rides. VIEW the POST

Noah – 4 years

It’s finally here, the little four, its crept up on us and is at our door. Many days and many nights, he’s been growing and has been a delight. He learns all day, he learns with pride, the beaming smile he just can’t hide. We love him so, you cannot deny, the happiness he gives us, why? Because he’s ours and because he’s a joy, my little Noah the birthday boy.

#Recipe – Spooky Halloween cake pops

#Recipe – Spooky Halloween cake pops

I love being creative with my baking, I couldn't care less if they tasted horrible - I just enjoy making the pretty little things and decorating it all. I usually get hubby to do the baking of cakes as he is great at them, I love decorating them. So we make a good team. This time, I did the baking too and they did taste great. The kids loved this Halloween themed cake pops. I got the idea from Dr Oetker and the great thing about this recipe is decorating the cake pops doesnt have to be perfect, so the kids will love getting involved. VIEW the POST

#CountryKids: a leaf throwing adventure

#CountryKids: a leaf throwing adventure

Yes! I can finally say that I am so happy to see autumn: cool days where we can wrap up warm and venture to a forest or park and throw autumn leaves around and have the most fun! We spent a couple of hours walking around our local RSPB this weekend, it was a lot of fun and that goes for the adults too. These photos make me incredibly happy, my favourite people and my favourite time of year. VIEW the POST

Noah – 3 years and 11 months

My little man is growing up, incredibly so, he’s learning bigger words, longer sentences and he is rather clever. I suppose all nearly 4 year olds could be described this way, but there you go. I have been told that there are children that go to school that cannot go to the toilet on their own, or write their own names yet – so with that in mind I think my little man is doing alright.
