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!...

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!


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?


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...

The benefits of a ghost mattress

Getting the right amount of sleep every night is essential to your physical and mental health. In light of this, sleep deprivation can affect so many aspects of your life negatively. The following are some of the negative effects of not getting enough sleep:

  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Impairment of motor skills
  • Increased risk of cardiovascular diseases and other serious conditions
  • Lower immunity
  • Decreased sex drive
  • Impaired learning, memory, and concentration
  • Decreased mood and motivation

While there may be several reasons why you are not getting enough sleep, there are some things you can do to prevent the problem. According to research, the vibe of your bedroom’s environment can affect your sleep. This vibe includes the comfort factor of your mattress. 

If you find yourself constantly tossing and turning in bed, perhaps it’s time to get a new mattress.  If you’re on the lookout for a new mattress that guarantees to give you what you are looking for, there are several options to choose from, such as the Ghost Mattress

Ghost Mattress: Made By A Reputable Company

The Ghost Mattress comes from a company called Nature’s Sleep, a highly-rated company that has been in business since 2001. As an established name in the mattress industry, Nature’s Sleep launched the Ghost Mattress in 2015. Since its launch, it offers several lines of mattresses as well as bed frames, beddings, and pillows. 

The Benefits Of A Ghost Mattress 

There are many reasons why you should consider getting a Ghost Mattress. If you want to know what these reasons are, then check out the following benefits:

  1. It’s Eco-Friendly 

Ghost Mattress products are safe for the environment. It’s a CertiPUR-US certified brand, which means that the mattress is free from the following harmful materials:

  • PBDE flame retardants
  • Ozone depleters
  • Heavy metals
  • Lead
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates
  • Mercury

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint even while you are sleeping soundly, then don’t hesitate to choose the Ghost Mattress. A small action like this can go a long way!

Ghost Mattress is made of different materials, depending on the mattress layer. Top-quality latex makes up the top comfort layer. As for the gel memory foam layer, you will find pressure-relieving gel beads underneath. The base then provides strong support for those who might be dealing with spine alignment issues.

  1. It Has A Long Warranty Period 

Shopping for a bed is a crucial task since a mattress is something you would be using every day. For this reason, you want to make sure you get your money’s worth. With Ghost Mattress, this is no problem at all. 

When you purchase a Ghost Mattress, it comes with a 20-year warranty. It also covers any defects found on the mattress like indentations and cracks. Make sure you check the warranty stipulations of the Ghost Mattress product that you will be getting.

  1. It’s Comfortable

If you want to get a good night’s sleep, your mattress should provide you with the comfort you deserve. Since a solid base and layers of cushion make up a Ghost Mattress, it can provide comfort to people living with back pain.

On the top layer of the Ghost Mattress, some holes can take the heat off the body and keep the mattress cool. If you tend to feel hot at night when you sleep, then a Ghost Mattress is something that you should try. 

  1. It’s Firm

If you had to rate the Ghost Mattress’ level of firmness, it falls in the medium category or a 6 out of 10. This rating means that this type of mattress will offer great support for the different parts of your body, including the spine. 

  1. It’s Convenient 

If you manage to get a Ghost Mattress, it’s very easy to set up. All you have to do is take out the mattress from the box. Once you’ve gotten the mattress out, it’s time for the unrolling process. Give it a couple of hours or more to expand. When the setup finishes, you can now sleep on it and enjoy the many benefits once the mattress is fully set. 

Sleep Better With A Ghost Mattress

Sleeping well is a challenge that many people suffer from. You have to find ways you can improve your sleeping pattern since many factors can prevent you from getting the right amount of sleep. Moreover, you have to look into the reasons why you’re unable to get quality sleep. 

Consider getting a Ghost Mattress if you want to improve your quality of sleep. You deserve to sleep on a comfortable and firm bed every night.
