This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.

🌾 I adore this photo!...

Happy June everyone and here are the photo prompts for #mummyphotoaday, June photo challenge.

I’ve included lots of generic words as during lockdown there is quite a variation of photos. I love seeing how each person takes on the photo prompts, some absolutely stunning photos.

Don’t forget to use the hashtag #mummyphotoaday so I can share the photos throughout the month, but so others can find you and like or comment. It really is such a lovely community.

So, what is everyone doing for June?

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!

#mummyphotoaday

We went out with a...

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?

#mummyphotoaday

Yeah for the #weekend!! It...

What a great #friyay it’s been! We spent the morning “washing” the food shopping, then went for a nice big walk around Godmanchester meadows. It was a beautiful walk and nice as there was a breeze which cooled us down.

Yes, I did say wash the shopping. Is anyone else doing this? I basically Zoflora all of the food shopping as I unpack it. The actual shopping process takes a lot longer and now I’ve added an extra 30 mins with the clean. We just want to be sure it’s not harbouring anything. Peace of mind if nothing else.

Then this afternoon we let the kids have movie time. They’ve been getting too hot in the garden. It is super hot in the garden, it seems to be a little sun trap. Which I’m not complaining about.

Daddy then took the kiddies to the park to play croquet and I had a snooze in the sun.

All in all it’s been a beautiful day and chilled. Probably one of my favourite Fridays.

What did you get up to?

What a great #friyay it’s...

    This would be perfect for quick trips out with my two. One nappy each and a packet of wipes and I would be set.

    I am fed up with taking huge bags with me for even the shortest of trips and this would be perfect for trips to the local parks!

    The mum on the go bag is amazing. Currently have a bag that my husband calls “The Poppins” because it is so big and contains so much that it is just like Mary Poppins’s bag!!! The mum on the run bag would help me to travel light (and save my back at the same time!!!) and is perfect for me as, like all mums, I’m always on the run!!!

    We have a bit of a joke in our family about Pink Lining bags – mummy goes totally do-lally over the mention of Pink Lining to which the rest of the family reply in unison… “it’s only a bag”. They so don’t get it – Pink Lining bags are so much more than bags – they are a chance for mums to feel special again after giving every ounce of energy they have to look after the children. This ‘mum on the run’ bag is just the perfect solution for when it is just me and my youngest baby popping out without having to take everything but the kitchen sink! Even when the other 2 are with me, this would just fit so much more easily into the gaps in the car once the car is loaded full of kids and all their stuff, and in the buggy when we need to keep space for getting shopping or some library books out. At the moment, the changing bag takes up all the space so it makes it impossible to bring home any extra shopping or the kids library books. It is also perfect for when the buggy is not coming with us – when baby is in the baby carrier as it is so hard to carry baby and a big changing bag. Out of all the lovely mummy constant Christmas competitions this is my absolute favourite!What a perfect solution this would be! xxx

    I take my niece out a lot and this would be perfect as I don’t need her big changing bag and I usually just end up using a carrier bag!

    This bag would be perfect for me when I am having my chemotherapy. I would use it to put my re-useable wipes in, my phone and my Kindle to while away the hours.

    It would then be used solely for my 18 month old as now she is older she only really needs the essentials on a trip out. This would be perfect for her. 🙂
