..He’s spent all morning trying to rip his elephant to bits so don’t be fooled thinking they’re best friends! 😂🐶 We’ve just had the first of our deliveries this week and I really want to put the Tree up now but Sam isn’t having any of it! 😩🎄

Just can’t get enough of my little cousin! 🥰 In photo 2 it looks like she’s telling us to put down the camera, and I mean she’s not wrong considering this was about the 10th photo 😂
I had a dream last night about a galaxy called Kitchen Sink and each planet was an item in a sink and the inhabitants were various microbes, bacteria, etc. Someone discovered how to travel between planets and we went on a fun galactic adventure. 🌌

Whenever I try and take artsy photos, my brother has a habit of invading them with a thumbs up 😂 somehow this one turned out okay, so it’s made it onto my feed 😅 it fits my latest blog post which is all about creating a good/positive aura! [link in bio] why not give a metaphorical thumbs up to everyone you meet today? 😊
Is anybody else experiencing the flooding? 🌊
Lots of the roads were flooded at the weekend, the Thames has burst its banks and the grazing is like paddy fields! 🌧️
Very grateful for wellies, living on a hill & not being flooded like in Yorkshire.
What are your plans for today? I'm going to a local shop to learn to crotchet and Hazel 🐩 has hydrotherapy (or we like to call it swimming lessons) later! 🏊

#AD Mornings are MANIC aren’t they?! 🤪 I’d love to be able to make porridge for the girls before the school run, but with Sophie’s hair style demands (two French plaits often finish me off!!) it’s just not going to happen 👧🏻 So I’ve been making overnight oats that I can prep a few days at a time. Oats are a great source of soluble fibre and a wonderful prebiotic food for bacteria in our gut. For dry skin, I use the @aveenobabyukire Soothing Relief range, which is formulated with colloidal oatmeal #aveenoambassador#wellnesspioneers#overnightoats#mumhack
🎃| 1970’s Toffee Apples | 🇬🇧 Toffee apples are a staple at german christmas markets, alongside soft and chewy gingerbread, chocolate covered grapes and gluehwein! So if you missed out on Halloween 👻, keep an eye open for any german christmas markets that might pop up in your neighbourhood. There’s even one in Dubai 😂, where we’ll be flying too at the end of the week, to spend Christmas with my family 💥🎄🎁

Aaron Sorkin is an American screenwriter, director, producer, and playwright.
He worked on A Few Good Men, To Kill a Mockingbird, TV’s The West Wing, The American President and Steve Jobs.
He also won an Academy award for writing The Social Network.
And a perhaps less well known fact about Aaron Sorkin.
Is that he showers up to 8 times a day.
It’s weirder than you think.
Aaron has actually installed a small shower unit in his office.
Because he thinks better in the shower.
I take six to eight showers a day.
I’m not a germaphobe, it’s not like that.
I find them incredibly refreshing and when writing isn’t going well, it’s a do over… I will shower, change into new clothes and start again.” WEIRD.
Not like you, of course.
You’re not weird.
You’re much more sensible.
Because whilst Aaron is showering and rejuvenating.
And getting ready to go again.
You’re sat frowning at your laptop.
The creative hill you’re climbing steepening by the second.
The creative fog you’re trying to see through becoming thicker by the second.
The eyelids that must sit high on your eyeballs becoming heavier by the second.
And the coffee you’re pouring down your neck becoming less impactful by the second.
And all of this.
As you struggle.
To a halt.
The Future of Work.
When you can.
Because the future of work.
Is doing more.
By doing less.
The future of work is doing deeper, richer work.
The future of work is having longer, more frequent breaks.
Breaks where you can think.
And this doesn’t mean pausing and staring into your bloody phone.
When life gives you lemons, take them, it’s free fruit after all, and juggle with them! .
Today has certainly been one of those days where I’ve had a few lemons thrown at me. I could have cried, but instead I put on a smile and realised that my job as a mum always comes first. This at times, means those lemons hit me smack bang in the middle of my face!
Thank you @esqido for sending me your waterproof and cruelty free Gel Eyeliners to try!
I’m loving how easily these glide on, making application so simple. They also blend gorgeously for smokey looks which is perfect for me!
Plus the seal in the lid is airtight meaning it doesn’t dry out and there’s a sharpener included! 🖤 #ad#gifted

As we enter winter, it comes along with grey, wet and windy days. It gets particularly difficult when on those days we’re feeling blue...
Better days are coming: the clouds will clear and the flowers will bloom 🌞🌷

Thank you @lucygreendesigns for sending me a selection of items from your gorgeous collection! 💓
[ad] Loving some of the @jacamouk pieces this season, especially this overcoat with the mock sheepskin trimming for that extra protection against the cold! Paired with their black skinny jeans and the classic 6 inch Timberland boot, the winter should be scared of me and not the other way around 😋🤘🏿😎 #jacamo

Hello guys, it’s been a while. I’m going to start posting more on here again. Just had a break because I’ve been so busy. Also, if you haven’t noticed, the link in my bio has changed. I’ve finally (after 6 years) set up my YouTube channel !!! Click the link and subscribe the account to see what’s in store !! .
My socks have arrived 🎉🎉 We bought a selection of @corrymoorsocks as we coukdnt remember which one we ordered last time! 😂 Anyone else use this as am excuse?! The ones we have already are super warm, super hard wearing and the whole family buys them time and time again! Also, we love their environmentally conscious packaging! Who else has tried these before?
It’s an ice cold Monday so what better choice for lunch than @warburtonsuk crumpets and minestrone soup in a mug? 🍵😋 Featuring @flora spread too. Yum! 💁🏻♀️ P.S I like my crumpets cremated 😂

Cleaning up your entire room after being down for a while is a different type of glow up ✌
Does it get more fall than this?
Autumn leaves, festive Starbucks and cosy booties!
Happy Monday friends, I am feeling so refreshed after a day with the babes at @kettleboobs yesterday and ready to take on the week... but first ☕️☕️☕️
🍁Yesterday was lovely with this little pickle. The weekends go so fast with Andy working Friday, me working Friday night and all day Saturday we only really have Sunday as a family. We went to remembering those who fought for us and did the food shop. Then went on the hunt for a Christmas tree! As we have no tree or decs so things will be a bit bare around here. Love this picture he is growing so fast! 🍁

I ripped through this book so fast, with such fervour it's unbelievable. A book based on the Nort West of England, where I live, it was such an interesting read to think that hundreds of years ago people were living such different lives. Based on the famous Pendle Witch Trials, Stacey Halls paints a wonderful picture, weaving in a captivating story. This week on the blog, we review The Familiars. Click the link to read.
I heard that in DUMBO Ellie-phants can fly! 🐘🤣

I have been less active on here because I have been super busy with baby Hannah, but I absolutely appreciate all your messages! I have been so lucky to connect with a lot of my new mommy friends via Instagram! Just a reminder to all Mamas, each and everyone of you is doing SUCH a great job. You are raising little humans and yes, some days can be really hard. I hope the little smiles and cuddles are all worth it, because I know for me that is what makes my job as a mama super worthwhile! It can be a bit overwhelming, and sometimes you may feeling like you are falling, but just remember, we all fall before we feel our ability to fly ❤️ On that note, hope you have a happy Saturday 🙏
