It’s not all glamour when you’re a #CharteredSurveyor ! Berrys Towcester recently undertook a Charities Act valuation on an house originally built for mill owners in Cheshire. The state of the dry rot is evident from the photograph. Such was the extent of the rot that careful movement was required around the property, as seen in the photograph the floorboards have fallen through into the cellar. #adayinthelifeofasurveyor#surveying#valuation#RICS#charities

My two young boys (ages 6 and 8) have recently become obsessed with football. They are out every day come rain or shine practicing their ball skills. The lawn is a mud pitch but they really don’t care. They are avid Arsenal fans and watch as much football as they can on the TV. They are now pestering me daily to watch a real game as a birthday treat! Does anyone know how to get decent priced tickets to see an Arsenal game this year? Aptly this is a picture of Tony Adams taken last year at the Angus Irvine’s Playing Field Funds fundraiser. Happy weekend all, I am looking forward to more muddy football action! #footballcrazy#jointeamsnotgangs#eventsphotographer#lifestylephotographer#tonyadamsofficial#oxfordshire#ameliaacesnaps#cotswolds#sohofarmhouse

Are you as excited for Friday as this guy with his miniature Blue Bottle Gin!? #TGIF
Something a little different from @mylegoman2 to welcome in the weekend 🙌🏼
🗣 “Within my troop we don’t do “Secret Santa” we do “The Grid!” You get given three names out of the nine of us to buy gifts for. Everyone gets three decent presents... you only have to put your energies into buying three presents! In one of my bag of treats was a Miniature Gin. This very bottle of Blue Bottle Gin, small batch gin made in the Three Fingers Distillery on Guernsey. Today is Blue Monday, allegedly today is the most depressing day of the year! So I have perked up my evening with this quirky gin..... described as the epitome of boutique gins! This Dry Gin served up with Premium Tonic, Ice and a Slice of Grapefruit. If there is anyone out there who can tell me how it got it name I am curious to find out! @bluebottlegin”

TEDxBanbury Fact Friday!
Did you Know….. The first TED Conference took place in Monterey, California in 1990. At that time it was an invitation only event! It is now an annual event held on the West Coast of North America, where more than a thousand people attend this 5 day conference, with over 70 speakers.
Fridays with my boy are so special. Playing with cars, dancing and singing around the house to @thewiggles and visiting family. Perfection. Mumming whilst working full-time hours and running a business takes its toll, but I'm so grateful to be able to have this time just me and him. 🖤

Dad and I are back on track this weekend in Wales 🏴 Karting is awesome and having a family of different Karting roles is even better!
It’s the #BigGardenBirdWatch this weekend, and we think the setup inside this Blakeney Summerhouse makes the perfect bird watching den! 🐦 🦅 🦢 -
We’ve added a sofa so we can get comfy, a coffee table so we’ve got somewhere to lean on when writing notes, and a pair of binoculars so we can admire the wildlife from afar.
Our dig at @Earth_Trust is uncovering all sorts of interesting items, like this Roman brooch.
This particular style is called a fibula, and would have been used to fasten clothing. As well as the lovely lattice decoration on the right, what's really amazing is that it is almost entirely intact!
The pin is stuck in the open position, and the spring is jammed with dirt, but once we clean it up, we may be able to close it and see what it would have looked like when it was last worn, nearly 2000 years ago.
Come see what else we found on one of our weekly Archaeology Tours!
I'm really lucky to have such wonderful clients - here is a recent review which made me smile (lots!) Happy Friday lovelies, what's making you smile today? Comment 👇 #review#smile#kindness#fridayfeels

Posted @withregram • @outofthedoghousewitney 🍃 Botanical Self-Healing sessions bring such a level of communication and closeness between you both. The moment you offer the remedy they wish to work with the response is amazing. It’s hard to put into words but I think the aftermath in this picture speaks for itself!
It’s a privilege to facilitate sessions with owners and to give them the tools to work with remedies 121 with their animals on an on going basis 🌿 ✉️ Message me for more details 🌼

We were SO excited about starting this job, that we forgot to take before photos!
Here's a 'during' photo & 'after' photos... This amazing house is 150 years old & had a Victorian floor put down when it was built.
At a later date it was covered up by parquet flooring. Our customer wanted the original Victorian floor tiles back in the hallway & although the original floor had been ruined by the parquet flooring, we managed to match it & put a new floor down exactly the same as the original floor had been done 150 years earlier😃
Here at Tileright we specialise in supplying & fitting Victorian floors. Whether it is matching old floors or just having a new floor in the Victorian style, we do both. The tiles are still made in imperial sizes (inches) to match the originals.
Please get in touch if you'd like to learn more: www.tilerightoxford.com [LINK IN BIO ON PROFILE]

Do you need a bit of stress to get motivated?
We hear a lot about how stress can have negative impacts on our body and that our exposure to the effects of stress can be almost constant in our busy lives but sometimes, just sometimes, do you need a little kick start or deadline to get something done? Yes, my tax return has prompted this thought!
What might be stressful for one person can be another’s normal, or even pleasure, so the impacts on our bodies will also vary (I’ve heard some people say they enjoy completing a tax return and some even submit it before the January 31st deadline! )
I guess it comes down to recognising if we are in control of our stress or if it’s controlling us and embracing small doses of helpful adrenaline versus something more out of control that could affect our health.
Tax return here I come ..... maybe after a coffee #managing stress #wellbeing#motivation#goals#reflexology#oxfordshire
Happy Friday! Anyone else excited 🙋🏻♀️; what’s your plans? This picture was taken yesterday during a fabulous, but freezing, day in Bourton on the water. It’s one of the prettiest little Cotswold towns, we love walking around here stopping for some lunch & a cream tea 🤤. We are so lucky to live in a gorgeous part of the country 🥰

The 'Can Can' ... where was the can? Last one... I did take others but we cannot have too much... (18-10-19)
Tea for two and two for tea 🎶
A renowned Oxford institution, the Old Parsonage (@OldParsonageHotel) provides a truly traditional setting for afternoon tea. Think roaring fire and old-timey portraits in winter, or head out to their stunning wisteria-covered terrace in summer. Whenever you go, the Old Parsonage promises yummy homemade scones and fresh finger sandwiches 🍰
Tag someone you’d take for tea at the Old Parsonage 👇

My first time visiting Blenheim Palace was a stunning trip through Wonderland. The interiors were beautifully decorated and I felt like I was walking in Alice’s shoes, room by room. You can take a peek in my stories highlights. Blenheim Palace is the only non-royal, non-episcopal country house in England to hold the title of palace.
I’m now luckily an annual pass holder and look forward to more long walks amongst some of the most magical trees I’ve seen.
Since being in Australia (sorry still not photos, I suck, I took about 7 before my battery died), there are certain things I’ve noticed about British people that does seem to happen elsewhere... Ok so the odd thing happens elsewhere, for example thanking people for thanking you apparently happens in Canada too 😂
We lack cereal... I love American cereal! Froot Loops and Lucky Charms in particular. A bowl of Froot Loops might not seem like much to some people but I LOVE them because I can never have them! When I went to Florida aged 10 I used to go wild eating bowls and bowls of Froot Loops when my mum wasn’t looking at the self service hotel buffet breakfast. In the UK we have laws on the sugar content that goes into our breakfast items, sadly this means no Froot Loops... unless you’re willing to go into the world food aisle at Tesco and pay 8 quid for one measly box (it’s expensive because of the sugar tax) and they still aren’t quite the same.
We cross the road regardless of whether the man is green or not. I used to get so many funny looks when abroad because I would skip across the road when the traffic light man was still red. ‘jaywalking’ is a word I’ve never really heard ever used in Britain, because it’s not illegal so we have no use for the word. We are allowed to cross the road when and where we like, although there are plenty of pedestrian crossings. When I’m in cities around the world I have to really stop myself from quickly running across because I know it’s not allowed. And I’m guessing if I get run over I really shouldn’t be entitled to any sort of healthcare.
We don’t talk to people or make eye contact. I can’t tell you how many strangers have struck up a conversation with me this. I was taken aback at first and felt super guarded, then I realise people are just friendly and open to conversation. That doesn’t happen back home other than a simple ‘hello’ when you walk past a fellow dog walker or when builders shout ‘CHEER UP LUV’ when you are pottering about your daily tasks.
We have more annoying habits but as usual, I’ve run out of space 🤓
