A Few Things I Love About Disney World (Part 1)

Next month sees us travel to Disney World for the second time since having J, and my 6th visit since I was 18. I love everything about it – the atmosphere, the Magic Kingdom and the feeling of being a child again to name but a few (even though I’m a long way away from that age!) Here are just a few reasons why I love it:

Best Friends {Living Arrows 19/6/17}

These two melt me. Whenever we are out they’re as thick as thieves (unless Lexi is rolling in something she shouldn’t or eating something she shouldn’t), and whenever you ask J what she wants to do its ‘take Lexi for a walk’

Where did the Time go? {Living Arrows 12/6/17}

This week we had a parents introduction evening at J’s school. It wasn’t really real until then if I’m to be honest. She’s my one and only baby and we love our routine and the next few months will see her move from her current nursery to school and us become school run parents, which I’m just not sure if I’m ready for. J on the other hand definitely is – she’s on daily countdown and is looking forward to wearing the coloured jumper she wants, and is excited to meet her new teacher soon

Cheeky Face {Living Arrows 4/6/17}

This week we’ve relaxed, we’ve spent quality time at home as a family, having had our good friend stay with us last weekend and it’s been much needed. After a busy few months with things planned pretty much every weekend planned we’ve got a relatively calm June and that works for us as July is jam packed

Me and Mine {May 2017}

Although we didn’t do a lot in May compared to April we had lots of adventures close to home, we travelled on foot a lot and it was beautiful weather for most of it. We started it off in Cheshire with our good friend RH and she ended it with us in Hamphire. I also went away with the girls to Center Parcs and started a new food plan to hopefully rid me of the problems that have plagued me for so long

Picnics Under Trees

Looking through my camera I realised I hadn’t taken any pictures of J recently, so we decided to head for a short walk yesterday and have a picnic at the top of Halnaker Hill. Unfortunately the best plans don’t always work out, and it started to rain as we were about to park up for the picnic. We ended up heading down the hill as fast as possible to seek shelter under a tree as the rain was getting heavier and had our picnic under the dry of the tree

A Month of Adventures {May 2017}

Where April was so busy with constant travel and lots booked in May was a lot more relaxed. We spent a couple of weekends close to home, travelling to places on foot and enjoying a slower pace of life. I looked back through my camera roll and I actually have no idea where May went because we didn’t actually do that much

Home Cooking Adventures

Since embarking on a food plan without caffeine, additives or processed food I’ve had so much energy, my skin feels good and I’m a lot happier. It’s also spread to rest of Cooks Cabin and as a family we’re all eating better, we’re making meals from scratch again and are spending more time creating food that makes us feel satisfied. Living in a world free from processed food is difficult and we’ve found ourselves talking about how best we can get past this and have the things we love without impacting our busy schedules during the working week

Growing Up {Living Arrows 22/5/17}

4.5 years old this week – closer to 5 than 4, growing up so fast and with such a beautiful soul. This week she told me that one of her friends at nursery fell over and hurt herself, so she offered to kiss it better like mummy does when she hurts herself but was sad that her friend said no. We’ve been told by the nursery that she’s the first to help newcomers in the room, the first to tend to someone who is hurt and the first to tell people when their parents have arrived

Lydford Gorge, White Lady Falls and the Devils Cauldron {Cooks on Holiday}

After a few beach days we decided to head to one of the National Trust locations in Dartmoor National Park on our holiday. Having visited in 2009 and remembering how beautiful the White Lady Falls were we decided to go again and replicate the family photo, this time with J present
