Back home from a glorious few days in the Cotswolds (feeling a bit Bridget Jones on a mini-break 💃🏻). @dormyhouse was amazing - if you’re looking for a spa hotel with some lovely long walks on your doorstep I don’t think you’ll find one to better it. And the food...well, I’ll be dreaming about the tarte tatin for a very long time. 🤤🤤🤤 #ukhotel#spabreak#minibreak#bridgetjones#cotswolds#longwalks#hugebath#tartetatin
If you like long walks a couple times a day, snuggling together on the couch, and spending most of your day with your best friend, then Kovu is your girl!
She is housebroken, calm (except when it's playtime), extremely easy to walk, and so incredibly sweet! She seems okay with other dogs, but definitely prefers humans!
I honestly don't know how this girl is still at the shelter! I try not to fall in love, but alas, it happens almost daily!
If you're looking for a new best friend, please head on over to @franklincodog and meet Kovu or check out any of the other adoptable dogs we have here:
Allie doesn’t usually drink from water bowls in people’s front yards, but when she does she chooses only the finest bowls with the freshest water that are in front of the most lovely houses in the neighborhood. 🤷🏻♀️

Summer is so far..
the scent of jasmine as I walk along the side of the house and overgrowing bamboo.
Fresh leaves on slow growing herbs and the first flower buds on my tomato and strawberry plants.
Watching the sunset during or before dinner and staying out too long to notice mosquito bites.
Spontaneous outings on days when the sun is shining and the wind carries your spirit.
Crossing paths with friends and family and sharing moments of joy & misery.
Slowly devouring beautiful food and drinking all types of drink.
Wanting to stay longer in church but rushing off to other engagements, knowing you can offer as much as you receive.
Walking in my local area with my love, taking the unknown path home and eating fresh juicy plums straight off the trees.
It’s been a sluggish start today. No.2 son was snuggled in with me this morning having been coughing and snotty in the night. No.1 son woke us up in a ‘we’re late’ panic.
Now, all the guru’s and life coaches say the same thing, get up early, do something physical and spiritual for yourself, set your agenda and your emotions yourself before someone else sets them for you...... well, I’ve been trying really hard at this. My routine goes, set google calendar (all colour coded) night before, in bed by 10pm, up at 6.20am, yoga until 7am, affirmations and then onto the kids breakfast packed lunches and the day begins.
Today, did this happen? Not so much! Alarm got ‘stoppped’ I didn’t even kid myself with a snooze!
Anyway, we made it to out-the-door for school on time. It wasn’t exactly calm but we made it!
Now I find myself alone in the house, still not dressed, not done my yoga or my affirmations.....but I do have a lovely cuppa tea and my wonderful advent calendar. My Mum gave it to me, it’s such a beautiful thing. I get a little present every day. My mum is my biggest support. More about her soon. I promise.
So, what next. I could give up and declare today a right off cos I started ‘badly’ but I’m not going to do this.
It’s sunny outside and it’s My intention to walk to the open air pool @hamptonpool for a swim (heated pool - I’m not mental!). Then home for chores, supermarket, kids taxi to athletics, homework, cooking and I really must get on top of that laundry pile!!!! And for me I want to get some time to focus on my goals and do something practical to make things happen. I have a plan in my head that I need to get on paper and in some sort of order. I have tech/it stuff I need to learn and I need to catch up on my @iampaulmckenna book (I’m a day behind on #changeyourlifein7days ). And I fully intend to atone for my Yoga lethargy by doing it this evening...... let’s see what I get done and what falls by the wayside!!!! #selfhelp#singleparent#redundancy#outsideswimming#longwalks#latestinbeauty#adventcalendar#tetleytea#affirmationsapp
