This time of year for me has all the feels - Christmas with the families and friends. We are lucky enough to celebrate twice this year with both mine and Gregs families - that has all the happiness as well as having two little niblets to celebrate all the magic with. We're not all that lucky at this time of year though, the pressures are real and you can see it all around. Pressure to buy the best gifts can put financial strain on, pressure to attend every Xmas event your invited to can exhaust you, pressure to visit more than one or two families on Xmas day takes away the chill factor, pressure to feed everyone and make the day fair - it is actually real, and it happens so often. For me Christmas is about being happy, seeing everyone happy, spending time with family and eating good food together, gifts are a bonus but by no means expected. We all need a little reminder that happiness can not be bought or given - we need to create it ourselves and then share it with our loved ones, so be happy, be merry and don't stress, everyone just wants to spend time together and eat well, your kids will temmber their experiences long after the thrill of a gift wears off - a hug is as good as any material thing if not better. #mumofgirls#positiveparenting#mumblog#mumbloggers#mumoftwo#christmas#behappy#happiness#happinessquotes#bemerry#lovelife#lifematters#blog#blogger#xmasfeeling#christmasfeeling#familytime#happytimes#besttime#life#parenting#naturalparenting#healthymind#happymind#loveyourself#happylife#happylifequotes

I wish there was a way to tell her that in 41 days we'll be in Disneyland. She would lose her shit.
🎄 In the run up to our blog launch (02.01.19), we'll be posting a photo of Ayala in a different Christmassy outfit every day this month. 11/31 🎄
We’re all busy. We all have responsibilities and kids and tidying up to do and a career to thrive towards.
But the difference with a fit and happy mum is she MAKES time to be in her happy place working out 🧘♀️🏋️♀️ Whether it’s getting up at 4am, training at 8pm after the kids are asleep or simply fitting it into her lunch break she does it! Bc Health, her happiness and her sanity are worth every second of the 30 minutes of hard core sweating she does for herself and for her family ☺️💕 #fitmumlife#fitmums#fitmumsofig
Irgendwie bin ich heute Abend nachdenklich. Ich denke generell sehr oft und viel nach, meistens auch über sehr tiefgründige Themen, aber heute ist es wieder mal sehr intensiv.
Ich scrolle durch die Nachrichten und denke mir nichts dabei. Das mache ich immer mal, um einfach informiert zu sein. Und dann lese ich „Schüsse am Straßburger Weihnachtsmarkt - Terroranschlag? 2 Tote, 11 Schwerverletzte. Täter auf der Flucht.“ Sowas machte mich damals schon nachdenklich, doch seitdem ich Mutter bin, ist es noch schlimmer. Ich kenne diesen Weihnachtsmarkt nicht, doch wie schrecklich muss es sein, wenn man ganz entspannt über den Weihnachtsmarkt läuft und dann sowas passiert? Oder wenn man eigentlich nur mit dem Kind Karussell fahren möchte und dann passiert das.. Wenn ich mein Kind anschaue, ist es einfach unvorstellbar. Sie ist so friedlich und spielt Alltagssituationen (Kochen, Mama - Kind, ..) immer wieder nach. Doch lebt sie dabei in einer fantastischen Welt voller Freude, ohne Gewalt und Bösartigkeit. Doch irgendwann wird leider auch sie mitbekommen, wie es „wirklich“ ist. Wie grausam Menschen sein können. Dabei hoffe ich wirklich, dass sie das „nur“ durch die Nachrichten mitbekommt und nicht an ihrem einen Körper spüren muss. .
Es gibt keine Worte für das, was passiert ist. Ich wünsche einfach allen Betroffenen alles Liebe. .
So for a very long time I have loved arts and craft and so many people said share with us how you make stuff, and it’s never been that I didn’t want to but I’ve never known how to really get in front of the camera and make it all come to life but then I realised it doesn’t need to be perfect as long as they can see. So I took the leap and created a video with the help of my little brother, It’s not the best from me but he done a great job and it’s a start 😊
visit my blog page amotherstrend.co.uk ( link in the bio) where you can read about my arts and craft and watch my first YouTube video (literally jumping every time I say that) not that it’s great but I feel I achieved a goal and that always feels good.
PLEASE SUBSCRIBE to my YouTube channel and share with a friend x
How is it Christmas 2 weeks today?! Feel like I haven't done enough chrismassy stuff yet! Going to jam pack it in now to make the most of the season. I've just been running round the shops panic buying 😳 anyone else been doing this? I need to start baking cookies, watch some Hallmark movies, wrap presents by the Netflix fire, slow down & enjoy December 💕
Yesterday I was again reminded of the powerful work these oils can do for our emotions. We were out and about for nap time and when we got home my poor little guy was having a massive meltdown. 😢 I took him to bed and he was stuggling, hard, to calm down so I grabbed my Sweet Sleep blend I have next to the bed (because I use it every night on him) and applied to the bottom of his feet.
Within a minute he had calmed, still sobbing a little, and asked for a story. I cuddled him and he kissed me then we read a story and he fell asleep. 🙏
This is why I share these oils! They don't cover up emotions, they support them. They give me the tools to gently support my little ones when I feel the most helpless. ✨
Ready to get started? Shoot me a msg and we can chat about your needs and the most cost effective way for you to get these tools into your home 💜🔆🌈
Y yo muero de amor con ellos... 😍
Lo sé, estoy desaparecida. Prometo que en cuento esté al 100% vuelvo con los vídeos. -
Me preguntáis mucho... y hace varias semanas que grabe pero no he encontrado la ocasión de ponerme a editar tranquila. -
Tengo tantas ganas de volver con los maquillajes 🙈❤️
❤️Buenas noches bombones❤️

Another festive season and another year that my heart is so full of pride and happiness for my son. Brodie had his performance today and he did fantastically.
A little over a year ago I was told by a teacher not to get my hopes up - that he probably would not be able to participate in the school play- but he did and with the support of amazing staff he did great.
This year he got into it even more and knew all the song words and actions. To see him enjoy himself and to see the pride he has in himself for accomplishing something is wonderful! ⠀⠀
Being an Autism Mumma is frightening, sometimes lonely and it’s definitely strange!! But when you see your child overcome an obstacle or learn a new skill...well there are no words for that! 🥰
This was earlier. (Not Evelyn, that was the other night when she decided to take over my bed)
Liv has been so clingy the last few days, it's all lovely and nice, the snuggles and that but omg when you need a wee or you know, just to breathe, it's harrrrd work.
She is just so cute though, those little chubby cheeks and those big eyes.
Hoping she gets a good sleep and feels better tomorrow, pesky pegs!
Ev on the other hand is legging it round like a mad woman screaming at the top of her lungs 😩 she never calms down til she crashes... hopefully she crashes soon I'd love a bath! Haha
Oh hey there. It’s me and my cheeky little boy. I feel like I’ve been a bit all over the place with instagram lately but I don’t feel like I have much to say 🙈
It’s the same old same old over here. Mainly surviving on coffee and red wine whilst Dexter uses me as a human climbing frame. We are totally not prepared for Christmas. I’ve done zero shopping and I’m also meant to be cooking my first Christmas dinner and have no clue what I’m doing 😂
How’s things your end guys?
Dieser kleine Engel 😇hängt über dem Wickeltisch unserer Tochter. Gerade zur Adventszeit wird mir immer wieder bewusst, wie viel Glück wir haben, einfach gesund zu sein. Vielleicht wacht ein Schutzengel über uns. Klingt etwas kitschig, aber in den letzten Wochen habe ich für mich festgestellt, dass wir 1000 Dinge haben und eigentlich gar nicht mehr brauchen als gute Freunde und Familie❤. Es muss wohl an dieser magischen Zeit liegen, dass die Gedanken im Kopf Karussell fahren. Für mich stellt sich die Frage: Brauche ich das wirklich ALLES? 🤔So sortiere ich fleissig aus und werde fast zum Minimalisten, denn Besitz belastet mich im Moment mehr, als das es mich glücklich macht. Kennt ihr das Gefühl?
Mummy and little miss messy hair had fun using the kiddy shopping carts at @morrisons after nursery. She's never been so well behaved around the store before 🙊 also I didn't even need to carry a basket! 😂 Definetly a mom win! Talking of shopping... What is your "behave round the shop" tactics?
