A throwback to 4 years ago… an impromptu moment where the kids had been given balloons 🎈 

We stopped in this field, with the buttercup blooms and sunshine setting… it was a beautiful scene.

They had me in stitches laughing at Daddy, who was encouraging them to smile for photos.

I love this photo. I remember them being so happy they had the balloons.

Do you ever look back at old photos and reminisce?

I think this might be my new favourite view… onboard my SUP! 🔵🔴

After 4.5 hours of paddling yesterday, on my first paddleboarding adventure, my thighs and shoulders have decided to disown me today. But, no pain no gain.

I’m looking forward to taking her out on some shorter trips, in the golden hours and taking a book to read on my pitstop.

I have learnt how to get the SUP inflated and deflated, I managed to fold it up into its bag too! It’s like getting a tent back in its original packaging- it never goes back exactly how it came out! 😂

My top tip for any SUP beginners is to find a slow moving river or lake to practice without a strong current.

My SUP is from @aquaplanetsup. Not an ad.
A little reel of my first paddleboard trip along the river. On my very own beautiful paddleboard too! It was meant to be pink, but the red and blue is perfect. We paddled for 4 hours in total, around the river in Cambridgeshire.

We stopped at Houghton Lock for a picnic and it was so peaceful. I love being out on the river. Albeit I was quite nervous I would fall in, I didn’t. Phew.

I did a combo of stand up paddleboarding, kneeling and sitting to get a rowing rhythm going when I needed it. The wind was against us on the way, which felt hard. But it helped on the way back.

I’m in love with days like this. So beautiful and I felt present, watching the dragonflies, butterflies and even the otters. It’s such a wonderful activity to practice mindfulness and also a spot of yoga. Lots of Table Top positions!

I can’t wait to get out on the river again! Have you tried paddleboarding before?

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?

Bottle Week: Tommee Tippee

Bottle Week: Tommee Tippee

  Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature range has been a range we used since Noah was born, we still use the bottles and steriliser today and can honestly say that the bottles have been really good - hard wearing, comfortable to hold, easy for baby to hold and easy to keep clean. The bottles designed for 0+ are designed specifically for ease of swapping from breast to bottle, to make it easier to combine feed. With Noah I bottle fed from after week 1 as we both didn't get on with breastfeeding as you may remember. My mum had brought us the Tommee Tippee bottles and steriliser as a gift before Noah arrived and so we felt lucky to have them around when we realised that Noah would be fed better by the bottle. I used the Tommee Tippee electric breast pump with these bottles and it worked really well, the bottles ...

Can’t breastfeed, Won’t breastfeed!

Babyhuddle recently approached me about trying out their fab new site and writing a guest blog post and I am very glad they did, the website is great and the idea of creating lists of products for other mummies-to-be and mummies is a ingenious idea. After a few moments thinking about what a good topic would be to write about, that would be a) helpful to other mums-to-be, b) relevant to Babyhuddle and c) easy to create a list of products for… I had it: Expressing!! It made me think back to Noah’s first two weeks, which in turn, made me feel very smiley. I had no idea I was going to express, until a week into Noah’s appearance, he just used me as a dummy and didn’t feed properly from me. At 2am until 4am some nights, I would just have to stand by his cot rocking him, whilst he was attached…

The Baby Show – Celebrating 10 years…

I am thrilled to be going to the this years Baby Show, 24-26th February 2012 at ExCel in London, it has a brand new look to celebrate ten years of running, so I am a little gutted I didn't get to see it before, to appreciate the new look!
