I’ve eaten loads and drunk far too much coffee
 I wanted to bounce on the beds and run around revolving doors (like in Home Alone) but this hotel didn’t have those kinds of doors. Just this entrance with 𝗯đ—Čđ—źđ˜‚đ˜đ—¶đ—łđ˜‚đ—č, ornate, mirrors. ⁣

đŸ’» Guess who’s got a đ—±đ—Č𝗮𝗿đ—Čđ—Č? Oh yes, that is me. Over 3 years of hard work has led me to this and I feel so proud of myself. Starting a degree during Covid and homeschooling children and working is just insane when I think back.⁣
⁣
All that study time means I have a BSc Hons in đ— đ—źđ—»đ—źđ—Žđ—Čđ—șđ—Čđ—»đ˜ đ—Łđ—żđ—źđ—°đ˜đ—¶đ—°đ—Č. I love that this is a universal degree, it means I can use it whatever my future holds. ⁣
⁣
As it’s an apprenticeship, through my employer, I still have some work to do to finish off. But my certificate is en route
 the hard work is done. I wouldn’t have been able to do this if it wasn’t for my employer giving me time to study and Hubby for giving me the space to work into the evenings and weekends. It’s a lot of time. And I will be forever grateful. ⁣
⁣
I love learning and it’s something I’ve always wanted to do, as I left uni at 20 without my 𝗟𝗼𝘄 degree. It was my biggest regret leaving so close to the end. But I’ve done it now and that’s the main thing. ⁣

Rambo was terrified of them, he would shake and not eat for days around this time of year. I often made him a den somewhere, so he could hide. It’s not nice seeing your đ—łđ˜‚đ—żđ—Żđ—źđ—Żđ—¶đ—Č𝘀 go through that. So we’ve never really embraced this occasion by going to a firework event. ⁣

Instead we sit and watch them from the glass windows, where we’re warm and safe. I raised a glass of đ—łđ—¶đ˜‡đ˜‡ to my furbabies up in heaven tonight. The night sky was deep blue and clear so I could see the beautiful stars inbetween the fireworks. ⁣

Reflections in the muddy puddles

Reflections in the muddy puddles

Today we went for a stroll, in the not so deep dark wood and we didn't see a mouse but the puddle jumping was good. We found our reflections in the rippling ground and jumped on plenty of mole hill mounds. The family fun was nice and good, especially the puddle jumping in the Brampton wood.  VIEW the POST

A family walk in the woods

A family walk in the woods

Last Sunday morning we took a walk in the woods near our home, literally a 10 minute drive and we ended up in a great spot. Perfect for autumnal photos too as there was a nice long row of trees either side of the leafy scattered path ways. The children were free to roam about and have fun safely, the perfect kind of family walk in the woods!  VIEW the POST

My siblings and me

Last month we took a trip to the woods with my brother and sister, it was a lovely couple of hours as we don’t do it very often. We had a walk around and the little people got to spend some time exploring with their Auntie and Uncle. It was an opportunity for a photo too. We recreated a photo from about 20 years ago and it did make me smile. Love my family very much and its times like this that give you nice memories.

Me & Mine: April 2015

I am a little late off the mark with getting April's family photo online, but alas it is still online! Story of my life at the moment. April has been really busy: work, holidays, children's nursery, children growing up, hubby's fitness program and somewhere in-between all of that day to day life. We did manage to get out into the woods over Easter and got some lovely photos and a family shot. The children are getting better and better at not posing properly, or they tag team - one will smile whilst the other looks away and vice versa. I am sure they do it on purpose. VIEW the POST
