Forest Mushrooms

Since stumbling upon a beautiful fairytale toadstool I’ve been longing to find them once more. After seeing someone post about a visit to Half Moon Common in the New Forest I decided it was a spot I wanted to go to, to try and find them once more.

A little bit of looking under ferns and by silver birch trees, and we gasped when we found what we’d come looking for!

Visiting the Welsh Mountains

For years I’ve been saying I wanted to visit the Welsh mountains and that I wanted to climb Snowdon but we’ve never managed to get me there. A combination of motherhood, Disney trips and home life meant neither visit nor climb ever quite happened, until this weekend…

A Year in Photos

I knew I wanted to write about my resolutions, but I also wanted to dedicate a post to some of my favourite photos from each month in 2017. Here are just a few of my many favourite photos from the year:

Looking Back on 2017 and Looking Forward to 2018

I’m aware that time moves at a set pace by my goodness didn’t 2017 feel like it flew by? Since I’ve become a mum the days felt like they had moved quicker, and then when J started school it stepped up yet another notch, with more routines and diary bookings

I started 2017 saying it was going to be the year of health, adventure and family, and whilst there’s still room for improvement, overall I’m pleased with my progress:

Wooly Hats, Welly Boots and Sunny Autumn Skies

Oh autumn you’re beautiful, you bring the most striking sunsets and gorgeous skies, and I’m totally and utterly in love with you. If only you’d last longer, continue to provide us colourful scenes and ensure the grey skies stay away, that would be just perfect

An Autumn Break in a Camping Pod

I’m the one who is always planning our next big adventure and more often than not the hubster goes along with it, so when I told him in September that I’d booked a weekend away in a camping pod in the middle of October he looked at me like I was a mad woman…who goes camping in October? This family does!

Visiting Mottisfont in Half Term

We’ve had our National Trust passes for a couple of years now but it’s been a while since we went to Mottisfont. I offered J a variety of things to do on the first day of her school holidays and she proudly told me that she hadn’t been to Mottisfont for a long time, and wanted to go there Continue reading “Visiting Mottisfont in Half Term”

An Update on 2017’s Resolutions

Back in January I (along with many others) set some New Year’s Resolutions. We’re well into the last quarter of 2017 and I thought it’s be a good time to look back, see if there were any achievements and if there’s any extra work I need to do to succeed

I started the year by saying the following:

To look forward, I see the three words that will underpin and define 2017 for me:

-FAMILY – HEALTH – ADVENTURES –

Playing in Leaves {Ordinary Moments 8/10/17}

Life has been so busy the past few weeks I’ve struggled to have time out and record our ordinary moments. The past week has seen 2 conferences, training, birthday parties and an off colour J to start it off. That naturally slowed our evenings and weekends down but our little tornado of energy returned towards the end of this week and so we set off on Thursday to stretch our legs and play in the fallen leaves

A Month of Adventures {September 2017} {Blogtober #4}

We’ve now completed three quarters of 2017 and into my favourite season. It seems that everyone loves autumn too and I totally understand why although I am unsure how we’ve managed to complete 3 quarters of 2017 already
