That time it rained after months without a drop and the kids went nuts playing in it 😂

Getting out and about exploring new places is such a important part of our little family life. Everyone is much happier with some fresh air, a bit of exercise, and being able to chat to them without the household stuff distracting us. I also hope I'm teaching them the joy of finding new places, even if there just on our doorstep. #NewForest #PuttlesBridge #Brockenhurst #Outdoorsfamilylife #wanderlustkids #storiesoftheeveryday #SnapHappyBritMums #WhereMyWelliesTakeMe #outdoorsandhappy #ourweekendhappy #familytravel #travelwithkids #travellingwithkids #showthemworld #kidstravel #fearlessfamtrav #familyfunuk #pbloggers #mummybloggers #mummybloggersuk #ukmumblog #CountryKidsFun #UKExplore #WorldofLittles #ExplorerKids #kidswhoexplore #thisprettyengland #myhappyviews #smallmomentsofcalm #awakethelight

Sometimes it’s just impossible to know what’s around the corner. It’s all out of my hands and that’s rather unsettling to say the least. But hopefully there will eventually be light beyond the trees. Time will tell. Life is just one long journey full of twists and turns. #mummyshot #ukparentbloggers #snaphappybritmums

Landen, Emily and their animals had their big day at The Royal Agricultural Winter Fair in Toronto.
Landens Netherlands Black Otter Dwarf "Pudge" placed 2nd. He was super nervous and everytime the judge picked up Pudge Landen could be seen biting his nails. 
Emily then purchased herself a Netherlands Black Otter Dwarf that also placed at the fair from Kelly Jones from Rural Roots Rabbitry and Poultry in Dunsford. Emily has lovingly named it "Isabella"
Landen and Emily will be kicking butt and taking names with their show rabbits in the next few years with Kelly being their mentor. Both kids are over the moon happy to be gifted time from Kelly to learn and to jump into the hobby of rabbit showing. 
One of Landen and Emilys Black Bantom Cochin Chickens  placed 3rd which rhey were generously donated from Laura Catherine Bennett. The kids had a huge smile ear to ear. Thank-you for making that happen Laura and for setting them up for more smiles with their show quality chickens in future fairs and shows. 
Emily also came in 4th in the Jr Showmanship class with her chicken and Landen placing 5th.
Thank-you to Ashleigh Leonard for all your hard work. It is very appreciated.
We are so lucky to live in a place where my kids are taken under the wings of so many talented and amazing men and women. 
Jake also surprised me and bought me this sweater because I think the are the coolest things, plus my Aunt owns one so they must be cool.
When I was wearing it at the Royal somebody told me they are referred to as "Drug Rugs" in Toronto. Well good thing I live in the country where people will view me as wearing a warm sweater and not a "drug rug"

ROCK POOL
Rock pooling is one of the things the acorns did as soon as we set foot on this secret beach during our short break in West Cork. There were also towering rocks to climb and even a cave to investigate. Of course the outing culminated with my first wild Atlantic swim - with waters this clear, how could I resist? 🏊‍♀️
New blog post to be published tomorrow. .

It took a lot of conjoling and being firm on my plans to go out on saturday as both Henry and Violet wanted to stay in.  I thought we could go to a different park to our usual and feed the ducks they have there. We made a mixture of bird seed, rolled oats and peas and eventually headed out. Henry was adamant he wouldnt be feeding any ducks....'it's for babies, 'not bothered' bla bla bla. But then  we got there  and he decided to have a try where he then declared 'feeding ducks is actually good fun'. Needless to say we soon ran out of food so think we will plan to go again soon. Sometimes the simple things can still be the best!!

Day 316 - I am grateful that there are still lots of raspberries to pick on our raspberry bush.

Its a hot chocolate and painting kind of day! #greauxemupbreaux #countrykidsfun #louisianafall #louisianalife #louisianacold
And just like that we are back to Monday again already. It’s a special one today though as my Dad will be celebrating his 76th birthday while my son goes back to school, swimming and Cubs. I wonder what else this week will bring. #countrykidsfun #mummyshot

S U N D A Y
Today was a quieter day after our busy Saturday of Netball & rugby. Our day went a bit like this:
Pancakes 🥞 for breakfast
Remembrance Service watched ❤️
Dog 🐶 walked 🍂 
Roast chicken 🍗 all cooked, eaten & tidied away
One child bathed the other currently wallowing 🛀 
Lunches 🥪 being sorted
Ironing 👚👕 being done
And I’m about to finish off my last ever @digitalmums Social Media Manager report!! 😬🙈🤞🏼
Hope you’ve had a fab Sunday & you are ready for whatever this week brings you.

The Forest of Dean is gobsmackingly beautiful at this time of year.

We had a lovely weekend, but I am exhausted and not ready for the new week, with so many deadlines coming up and my parents arriving from France.

I think spending the rest of the day under some blankets may be in order.

We ventured down to The Newbury Festive Fair today. The boys had very good reason to wear their new wellies, following the recent weather and loved having a splash around in the huge puddles. 💦💦☔️.
There didn’t seem to be much there today so we were in and out within about 2hrs, which is a shame considering the cost to get in! 😱
We did get to meet Razz 🐻 though and he was cool! And did buy some @westberksbrew cans to try later 😉

SURPRISES 🤷‍♀️ Yesterday we went to the park. It was a *tad* wet. It took forever to get there as the girls jumped in every puddle and not-puddle they could find (swipe to see!). Imagine my astounded mouth open look when I spotted this photo I snapped. Blue sky??! What blue sky we wondered. It just shows how sometimes photos can be deceiving! I guess it also shows how we didn’t have time to really take in our surroundings as they girls frantically played before the next rain started 😁 
I’m linking this to #eight the @mummyconstant  #mummyphotoaday challenge as it’s of my little B, who’s actually somehow in her eighteenth month!! Well that’s the fastest 1.5 years ever. 
Tomorrow’s prompt is cake. I can definitely manage that one 🎂😁 . . .

We unexpectedly woke up to sunshine yesterday so we headed out for a few hours to @ntdunhammassey. The girls have so much fun each time we go. Both following the garden trails and in the log pile/den building areas. We even spotted a few young deer. They had some great remembrance day exhibits on too which I'll be sharing in stories today.

Throwback to that time we saw an amazing sunset and I took twenty billion photos of these guys. Tiny snapshot of their love for one another. Major heart eyes for the lads. #mancrusheveryday

*POORLY BOY*
____________
This poor little man is really ill. He has had a high temperature all day and been floppy and sluggish.  He’s gone to bed and he’s still feeling hot and is poorly. 
____________
So today has been a day full of cuddles  with my little boy and not much else. Today I’ve spent all day as Mummy. Because that is what my little boy needed. And today being there for him, was the most important job in the world. 
____________
PS. Don’t you just love Little Mister H’s cute face in this photo? And I really like the yellow autumn leaves on the floor. A perfectly autumnal photo taken on a gorgeous morning at the park with the always lovely @mylittleholland123.

OAK
One of my acorns (Squirrel, of course, who else?!) hanging from a mighty oak tree in Knockomagh Wood Nature Reserve, Co Cork. I just started reading The Hidden Life of Trees, by Peter Wohlleben, and now this picture takes on a different dimension. I'm only a couple of chapters in, but I already know I'll never look at a forest in the same way again.

We are currently watching Mr Bean waiting for the rain to clear before we go out for a walk. This picture I took a couple of weeks ago sums these 2 perfectly...Violet focusing on some acorns she has found and Henry balancing and jumping off a fallen tree

I spy with my little eye a boy who’s ready for another adventure. Today’s adventure will involve a train journey and lots of Lego as well as catching up with his birthday sharing cousin and her partner. Oh and croissants! Our train journeys often start with a croissant bought from the cafe at our local station, yum! What plans have you got for today? #mysonismyworld #countrykidsfun #outdoorsandhappy

This was our 1 and only visit to this play park.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Why? Because when we went on holiday, I used Google Maps' satellite mode to search for playgrounds close to our campsite. Most villages will have a playground of some description and you can see how big it is from the satellite view. 📡 Then each evening of our holiday, we went to explore a different park.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Some were big, some were tiny, but kids didn't really care - it was the novelty of exploring a new set of equipment each day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The media tells us we need to plough hundreds of pounds into a holiday to make it special... but actually the free things can be super special too!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
What's your favourite free family activity?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Most villages will have a playground of some description and you can see how big it is from the satellite view. 📡 Then each evening of our holiday, we went to explore a different park.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Some were big, some were tiny, but kids didn't really care - it was the novelty of exploring a new set of equipment each day.⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The media tells us we need to plough hundreds of pounds into a holiday to make it special... but actually the free things can be super special too!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ What's your favourite free family activity?⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ .⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ #mumswithlplates  #mumsthatgotthis  #funseekingkids  #myfamilyadventures  #LittleFierceOnes  #happylittlebuttons  #playadventures  #tbcsmiles  #our_everyday_moments  #illuminatechildhood  #freespiritedchildhood  #childhoodunplugged_family  #mycolourfulkids  #backsoflittles  #lovelettertoadventure  #outdoorsandfree  #curiouslittleexplorer  #countrykidsfun  #wanderlustkids  #awanderfulchildhood  #letsgolittles  #roundabouts  #playingintheplayground  #playgroundlife  #parentinghacks101  #changeisasgoodasarest  #exploringlocal  #adventuresaroundeverycorner  #funisfree  #colourfulplayground 
What does your family do on a rainy day? Well this is what we do! We go outside and play in the skid steer. The kids absolutely love heavy equipment and it’s like Christmas when they get to play in them! Nothing makes me happier than seeing the joy on their faces!!

Some more holiday spam! 
Its absolutely howling a gale outside tonight and I would love to be back @Kianibeachresort lapping up the sun. Theres a video over on my youtube channel where you can get an inside peak to the resort. Why not head over, I would love to hear what you think. #ad #presstrip 
In other news I have an exciting Saturday planned with a couple of girlfriends which includes eating in the pitch black and at least three different cocktail bars.... I will be sharing some of it in my insta stories over the weekend.

It was back to school this week. He tells me they don't play anymore...⠀
I read an article a few days ago, written by a teacher who said this was true of year 1. All of a sudden they go from play-based learning in reception, to less play and more focused learning in year 1. What are your thoughts on less work and more play? Working in small groups with an adult is def helping my son keep focused. He def needs structure now and again. But yeah, I really think they can learn an awful lot through play too. I hate the thought that they have SATs just next year. He seems so young for all this testing so early on.⠀

This picture is one of laughter, fun and joy but we're as far as it's possible to be from that today. My poor baby spent over half of last night and her first part of the day today crying about the pain she's in with her face. It breaks my heart. I'm doing everything I can but still cannot take all her pain away and that's a harsh reality for a mummy, exhausted or not. 😢

This is my four acorns at the summit of Knockomagh, Co Cork, with Lough Hyne down below and the west Cork coastline in the background.
Lough Hyne is an inland seawater lake and marine nature reserve. If you're lucky enough to go kayaking on it at night, you'll witness one of nature's most magical shows - bioluminescence.
Find out all about it in my latest post - link in bio 😉

Happy hump day! The weather was cold and wet for most of the day and by far the most Autumunal I've experienced this year. Which has got me wishing we were back on the beach in twenty four degree heat, white (and pink) sand with the sea gently lapping at the shore. Instead I am going to have to be content with flicking through pictures. Not that I can complain too much as Monkey and I are off on another exciting trip next week. Which both of us are insanely excited about. It may have more to do with the white stuff than the sand stuff though.

But for now I am keeping my fingers crossed the bad weather is gone by the weekend

The nights are drawing in and school is back in full swing after our whirlwind trip to Disneyland Paris. #linkinbio We’re practicing Christmas Carols already in choir and getting ready for Remembrance Day on Friday by creating a massive poppy to display on the school gates. It’s going to be made out of ribbon with  donations going towards the British Legion! Have you got your poppy yet?

I do love this photo of me and Little Mister H feeding the ducks at @wwtslimbridge . We had such a lovely day there a few weeks ago. And it is one of my happy moments from October.

I’m over on the blog today sharing those moments from October that bought a smile to my face. (Link in profile). Including our day at Slimbridge, where the kids had a wonderful time feeding ducks and splashing around in welly boot land. What were your happy moments from October?

Not quite as big as the last huge leaf I posted, but such a gorgeous colour 🍂 
We’ve had a lovely day, fun with friends, and ballet for H today. She’s really loving ballet so much. If only she knew how proud I was of her, listening and following the instructions so well ❤️ Do you have those days when they just make you smile? Of course they then promptly throw a tantrum for x, y and z... and then elbow their sister in the face? 🙈 Just mine? 🤷‍♀️ .

Aaaargh I read a really distressing blog post yesterday and it's got me all worked up. It was about gentle parenting and said a lot of things that I completely disagree with (even though gentle parenting is "my thang!") But you see, I believe passionately in the gentle parenting philosophy (that children should be treated equally & respectfully) but then I interpret that in my own way. There are some very extreme gentle parent-ers out there. I'm worried that by using the term "gentle parenting" I might be aligning myself with something I disagree with 😣. What should I do? Keep writing MY version of gentle parenting? Or come up with a new name for my interpretation of it? ❓⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Nearly nine, but still to be found with a stick in hand.  There was a time when he wouldn't entertain the idea of going down a slide, or climbing a ladder, let alone trying the monkey bars. He's still a little risk averse compared to his friends but who cares when you see a smile like this one on his face.  Simple pleasures are what childhood is all about, don't you think? #tbcsmiles #mysonismyworld #snaphappybritmums

🔥HAPPY BONFIRE NIGHT!🔥
.
We’re not going to any firework displays tonight, but are hoping to join in some celebrations at the weekend, if the weather holds up 🤞
.
And we made firework paintings this afternoon, in the garden, after watching a couple of short documentaries about how and why this day is celebrated.
. 
I was impressed (again) by Penguin’s improving scissor skills. This is a kiddo who still struggled to hold a pair of scissors at age 7-8, and who only in the last year have developed the coordination skills needed to hold onto an item himself while cutting it. And here he was, cutting the end of a toilet roll into fine strips ✂️👏😍

Believe in your dreams. Believe in today. Believe that you are loved. Believe that you make a difference. Believe we can build a better world. Believe when others might not. Believe there's a light at the end of the tunnel. Believe that you might be that light for someone else. Believe that the best is yet to be. Believe in each other. Believe in yourself. I believe in you.

One day left with my girls until it’s back to school tomorrow. People always look at me strangely when I say this but I love them being off school with me. They are such much fun to be around. 
Anyway, we are going to spend the day at the museums having a potter followed by tea at Nanas. Have a good Monday!

It's always nice to take a moment to say hello to the residents when we're enjoying a walk in the countryside.  Sheep and cows are my son's favourite farm animals, so he's always pleased to see some to talk to for a minute or two.  I'm so lucky that he's an outdoor boy at heart, happy to walk, often with a stick in hand, to look at the world around him and just enjoy wherever we happen to be.  Yes, sometimes he does need a little nudge to get him to leave his Lego building behind and get his walking boots on, but once he's left the house he's always ready for a new adventure.  I wonder what this week will bring? #mummyshot #outdoorsandhappy #countrykidsfun #awanderfulchildhood #freespiritedchildhood

Woo hoo I'm back on insta! Looking forward to catching up with everyone.

A busy summer while my niece stayed with us for the holidays, a new role as teacher at our waldorf inspired kindergarten, as well as forest school leader, and a broken phone (which actually I could have fixed ages ago but it involved going into the city so...) has meant a little break.

The season has certainly changed since I last posted here! We've been enjoying sunny woodland walks, collecting autumn treasures and even watching the first fluttering snowflakes fall! ☀️ 🍂 ❄️ #hopeicanrememberhowtodothis

A busy summer while my niece stayed with us for the holidays, a new role as teacher at our waldorf inspired kindergarten, as well as forest school leader, and a broken phone (which actually I could have fixed ages ago but it involved going into the city so...) has meant a little break. The season has certainly changed since I last posted here!

So here we are, end of the half term, my eldest had two weeks off and we managed to fit a whole lot into that fortnight. We went glamping, rocked Halloween, explored Cheltenham, went skating and I managed to pretty much keep it together without dropping too many balls (okay a few balls were dropped). In all honesty it’s really hard being a freelancer, working from home with work being a real financial necessity, as well as keep on top of the house, life admin and try make a little time for our own wellbeing - wow modern society expects a lot us ladies. Anyway as always being outdoors with two active boys is much easier than being in and we got to try out this awesome go-cart from @kettlergb which really helped to keep them entertain & outdoors, away from screens. I have one of these to giveaway over on my blog (link in description) so check it out.  #ad #gocarting #getoutdoors #lovelifeoutside #freespiritedchildhood #kidswhoexplore #letthembelittle

It feels like half term has finished in a flash but also feels like ages ago since I was at work so think that's a good sign. The weather has been great so we've been able to enjoy lots of time outside and visit some new places. Still got a some birthdays before I cam start the Christmas countdown but planning to be sorted by December this year!!

‘Toddler dropping baby’ photo no. 2533. He loves her. But not as much as he loves dropping her and laughing hysterically about it. Poor girl’s going to start to get a complex about it. That’s the thing about two kids, there’s never a decent shot of them both at the same time 🙄🤦🏻‍♀️

• Good • Daisy was off to a birthday party this evening so I reminded her before we left that she needed to be on her best behaviour whilst there. “Do you know what that means?” I asked her. “Yes” she said. “I need to say happy birthday to Bella, always say please and thank you very much. Is that right Mummy?” Wow, I guess she does know 😊 #pblogger #goodmanners #lillyandsid #outdoorsandhappy #parklife #wheremywelliestakeme #countrykidsfun
