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?

As views go: this has to be one of my favourites. Paddleboarding, in the sunshine and on a calm river. It just looks so beautiful and really relaxes me.

I haven’t braved the paddleboard in the Winter months yet. I haven’t fallen in yet, but it would just be my luck! Have you done this before?

My other favourite views are closely followed with the beach… on a sunny day where the big fluffy clouds are floating on the horizon. And, finally, at the top of a Tor. As the views are always pretty breathtaking.

What is your favourite kind of view?

We escaped the house today, in-between the rain showers, and got some much needed fresh air and family time. The Sun shone beautifully in the winter sky. 

Snoopy did so well as we walked for about 90 minutes. He had a few breaks in the waggon (did you see my stories?) and I carried him the last stretch.

It was our first family walk without our little pal, it felt wrong. I felt guilty for being out with Snoopy. But then I pictured little Rambie walking by our side and that made me smile.

Isla still cries at night time. I wish I could make her pain better. We are all still struggling to get over our loss. He really has left the biggest Jack Russell sized hole in our family.

Anyone else get out in the Winter Sun today?

I had a big surprise this evening… what I thought was a chilled pizza night with one of my friends - turned into a surprise 40th get together for pizza and Prosecco with my beautiful “yoga” friends.

We built our friendship over the last year doing yoga and I’m so glad we did. They are an amazing group of women and I’m proud to call them my friends. It’s funny as, all bar one, I knew before yoga.

We laugh. We cry. We chat. We rant. We eat. We drink. We smile.

Thank you so much ladies. I am very grateful. After receiving Rambos ashes today and losing focus, I’m glad I could cry and laugh with you all tonight.

Moving house can be a highly stressful experience, regardless of what age you are.

Moving with the elderly requires a little more planning, foresight and consideration, but this can be made pretty straight forward with some preparation and patience. In this article, we will look at some handy tips when it comes to moving with the elderly, so read on to find out more!VIEW the POST

Your child’s first sleepover: preparing them (and yourself)

Your child’s first sleepover: preparing them (and yourself)

In many ways, having a sleepover is really one of the first rites of passage that your children will ever have. It is an important kind of socialising for many children, and it can be useful for them in terms of gaining and developing friendships. It is also important for you as a parent; events such as the first sleepover are very often tests which seem designed to enable you to begin to let your child go out into the world. In all likelihood, you will be a little worried first time around. That is perfectly natural, but it’s healthy to try and let it happen too. In this post, we are going to look into some of the things to consider if your child is going on their first sleepover.VIEW the POST

Wimpole Home Farm on the first day of Spring

I didn’t realise it was the first day of Spring on Sunday, until we got home from a trip to Home Farm at Wimpole Hall, a lovely National Trust estate near us. What a perfect way to spend the start of Spring, running around a beautiful location full of flowers and baby animals of course. The kids had a great time exploring and playing on the tractors.

A day for bubbles…

A day for bubbles…

I have found it difficult today  and in no way shape or form can it compare to that of Jennie and her husband. Jennie lost her little baby princess at 9 months old and Matilda Mae was only 8 days older than Isla Rae, you can probably empathise with why it has been a difficult day now! Today is Matilda's first birthday. I have tried not to think about next week today, as my princess is one next week and I feel guilty. I feel guilty for having my baby girl and preparing all the things I have for her birthday and her christening on the 12th May and that Jennie, well she has prepared for today in a completely different way.
