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?

Happy June everyone and here...

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?

#mummyphotoaday

What a great #friyay it’s...

🐝 We have really loved spending time in our garden. Exploring the nature and wildlife that shares the space with us. We found a moth caterpillar today; it was amazing to see it so up close and personal. We ended up discussing the Hungry Caterpillar story from their childhood, it was a nice nostalgic moment.

Yesterday, we spent some time counting up all the bees we could see in the garden. We found the 15 in the back and 4 in the front garden. They love this purple flower that has popped up this month. Sometimes you can see the bees with all the nectar hanging off the back of their legs. It sparked a discussion about the process of making honey. The children are fascinated.

We are lucky to live by a large park; it has woodlands and a big open space with lots of wildflowers and long grass. We often spot wildlife during our daily walk and sometimes sit and see what fly’s past. Obviously sticking to government guidelines.

For those animals that we do not live close by, or are even in the same country, we’ll be snuggling up to Sky Nature, the new channel from @skytv that is dedicated to exploring the natural world. Isla’s favourite animal is a ring tail lemur, she carries one (usually in her mouth) everywhere and so I couldn’t help but series link the Gangs of Lemur Island episodes. I am going to make a quiz about lemurs to test her afterwards! This is a favourite activity throughout lockdown, a great way of learning something new.

Sky Nature is available now, it’s channel 130 on Sky Q and it comes at no extra cost.

Our half term routine (it really doesn’t feel like a half term) is dog walk, craft or sport activity and then garden fun.

The weather has been incredible over the past few days and it looks set to be the same for the weekend. Lots of paddling pool #games in the garden and adventure dog walks in our nearby parks.

How does everyone feel this evening with the new lockdown rules? I’m not sure how I feel. The kiddies grandparents can come and visit, but still can’t hug or be “normal”. I’m not sure the kiddies would be able to not do this, especially if they are sitting in the garden.

Maybe I’ll wait for the guidelines to be added to the gov.uk site before I try and decide what it will mean for us. Gather the facts... make a decision... get through it with a smile. Seems to be my lockdown mantra.

🐾 Happy 12th birthday to my beautiful furbaby; Rocky. Despite making the neighbours mad over the past few weeks with the bird capturing (all of which flew off in the end) he is the best.

Not many of you will know that Rocky was an engagement present to me from Hubby. He came home from work one day with Rocky meowing behind his back... he had the cutest squeak. He was a little ball of fluff.

Rambo (our Jack Russell) immediately took ownership and they’ve been best buds ever since.

He’s such a handsome cat, yes I’m biased, he gives me snuggles at night and entertains us with his chasing and playful moments.

I can’t believe he’s 12. He’s lived in 5 different houses and his dog cat qualities are incredible. He seems to understand commands like the dogs... he sits for food and is quite obedient for a cat.

I’ll be sharing some cute Rocky photos in my stories today... his kitty look is adorable.

Has anyone else enjoyed spending all of this time with their pets?

🐾 Happy 12th birthday to...

Win a bundle of wellbeing goodies

What better way to kick off the New Year than to do it with a competition? And, a fabulous competition at that: to win a bundle of wellbeing goodies. I am an advocate for mindfulness and looking after yourself. This competition will give you everything you need to give yourself some time and to ensure you start the year with a healthy mind.

Clear the air

Did you know that some indoor plants can help to purify the air? I didn’t until Frosts Garden Centre told me and their Anthurium Andraeanum is a perfect candidate. Doesn’t she look beautiful? This particular plant has just been listed in the NASA clean air study. Indoor plants do the opposite to us; soak up the Cardon Dioxide and release oxygen. It removes harmful toxins in the air and keeps it fresh. Frosts Garden Centre were really excited to hear about my competition as they too think we should all look after ourselves a little better.

anthurium

What will I win?

This competition is to win some amazing prizes, worth £120, details are below:

Hypnotherapy recording

The Food Psychology Clinic are offering the winner a hypnotherapy recording called “Re-build your relationship with food”. It’s a great session that helps you to have a healthy relationship with food, stop the binge eating and over-eating. This can be a great way of making you feel happier, as the healthier foods can often make your mind feel happier. This is worth £35.

Journal from Pen Heaven

Pen Heaven are offering the winner a large leather journal and the winner can choose their colour too. The journal is a great place to start scribbling your thoughts, doodling to help clear your mind or make your mammoth to do lists. Which all helps you to have a healthy mind. This journal is worth £19.50.

Horlicks goodies

Horlicks are offering 2 jars of Horlicks and a 2 lovely mugs for the winner. These mugs are just beautiful, they are Limited Edition Emma Bridgewater Horlicks mugs and will make a great addition to any kitchen. Not only that you get 2 jars of Horlicks, my favourite and a great way to take a moment! This bundle is worth £30.

Handmade soy wax candle

Handmade Perfect 4u are offering the winner a beautiful Sandalwood & Black Pepper Scented Candle worth £14.50. It has woody tones, with spicy and peppery notes. It is a more rustic smell, less sweet, which is a smooth and warm smell. It reminds me freshly cut wood and a little bit of vanilla too. These candles are all handmade in the UK and use high quality ingredients.

Supergreens and CBD Mind

CBD Mind are capsules that are formulated to help you withstand pressures of a modern lifestyle. The ingredients are taurine, ginseng and vitamins B2 & B5 to support mental performance. These capsules are not recommended for people under the age of 18. This tub of capsules is worth £39.99.

Supergreens from Bioglan Superfoods is a power superfood that helps revitalise body and mind. It contains wheatgrass, kale and barley grass. It also has vitamins B12, C and E. You can add it to your meals or simply add water to the powder. This is £9.99.

Sassy Shop Wax goodies

Sassy Shop Wax are offering the winner a segment and starter pack worth £21. These beautiful wax segments are perfect for adding a special scent to any room. A wax melt is the wax part of a candle, without the wick, instead you melt the wax in a tealight burner. In the starter pack you get a random selection of their best sellers and you will get a segment too.

Wellbeing book bundle

books

As part of this competition you will win the following 3 books: Clean Sleeping by Lisa Helmanis, Sort your Sh*t out by Caroline Jones and How to go waste free by Caroline Jones.
