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?

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!


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...

Win Playfoam Pluffle and Playfoam Snowy friends

It is definitely competition season! This time I have partnered up with Learning Resources and to kick off the festive spirit they are giving one my readers the chance to win some fun goodies. The Playfoam Snowy friends and Pluffle are a great toy for this time of year or fabulous Christmas present ideas.

Playfoam Puffle

This stuff is absolutely fascinating. They call it mesmerising feel good fluffy stuff and it really is just that. It looks like it would feel quite tough, like the rubber chipping you get at a park, but it really isn’t. It’s soft, almost marshmallowy soft and squidgy. You can mould it into shapes and watch it change slowly. If you tip the tube upside down it falls down really slowly, we sat and watched it for hours. The other added bonus to Puffle is that it has glitter in it – who doesn’t love glitter?

These come in sets, 3 sets with different colours and this competition is to win all of the sets. Playfoam Puffle tubes come in some fun colours: pink, green, red, blue, yellow and purple.

Playfoam Snowy friends

Playfoam Snowy friends are fun collectible characters that come in a snow dome. Each snow dome is full of fantastic Playfoam, it is tiny little balls of the non-toxic foam. Perfect for messy (not messy) sensory play. Isla really enjoyed discovering what animals she had. She loved them both. This competition is to win a pack of 6 Snowy friends – lucky!

How do I win the Learning Resources goodies?

To be in with a chance of winning the following from Learning resources: 6 pack of Playfoam Snowy friends (worth £18) and one each of of the Playfoam Puffle duo packs, which is 6 tubes of Puffle (worth £36). Total prize value is £54. Perfect before Christmas.

Win a bundle of goodies from Learning Resources

Competition closes at midnight on 11th December 2019, just in time to kick off my #12DaysofConstantChristmas competitions! Woohoo. Good luck.
