A selection of photos from my 30th Birthday weekend….. I was seriously so lucky. I had an amzing surprise night out at our local, organised by my best friend on the Friday evening – plenty of friends,  dancing, singing and prosecco. Saturday evening, was a trip to the cinema and a Nandos date, again with the Bestie – we saw Bad Moms – it was hilarious – and drank slushies – totally what you do on the eve of turning 30! Then Sunday, my actual birthday, was a lovely family meal at Egypt Mill, Nailsworth, where me and Ell had…

Week 5 – 22nd – 28th August. This was the week I started to struggle. The first 4 weeks of the summer were fine, there weren’t too many arguments or fighting or boredom.

On Tuesday we did pop to The Mall at Cribbs Causeway to see the Gromit Unleased Exhibition. A couple…

Week 4 – 14th – 21st August 2016 We started off our first day back from holiday, and our first day reunited with Harley with a lovely river walk. Harley had a whale of a time swimming in the river and Daddy and the kids had fun hunting for Pokemon! Little did Harley, or we know, this would be his last walk for a while. Poor Harley managed to catch Kennel Cough whilst he was boarding, and the symptoms started to show on Monday. He had the most awful cough and would gag every time. He also started sneezing out…

I’m so totally behind with all my summer posts at the moment, but it is lovely as I’m having fun going back through the photos more than a month on. All of my ‘big camera’ photos are in a separate photo heavy posts which you can find here, but these are my iPhone memories, with a few big camera photos thrown in for good measure. Every year we try and get in a family holiday to Cornwall. We have been going nearly every year since Izzie was a tiny baby, and sometimes we go with my parents and have stayed…

We are so lucky to live a very short distance from the National Arboretum at Westonbirt, and as we have an annual membership, we spend a lot of time there, walking the dog, or meeting friends as they have a great play area. If you are in the Cotswolds, its beautiful for a day out, but in Autumn, gets incredibly busy. In March, we visited, and I had my ‘big camera’ and managed to get a few shots of the little Brushneens amongst the bluebells.                              …
