We’re jumping for joy 🙌🏼 If you didn’t catch our big news, @mwholidays selected us to be their Family ambassador this years - and we are thrilled. 🌍✈️ I feel like I need to pinch myself because things like this don’t happen to little old us, but I’m so excited to let the boys explore a new part of this planet. ☀️
I think we need an Easter break. 🏖 We’re meant to have a little getaway next week, but I think we’re going to have to cancel and rearrange as I really don’t want to pull Noah out of school when we could simply go the week after. 👎🏼 These boys of mine have yet to visit the seaside, they’ve never chomped on a nutritious stick of rock or heard the ‘kerching!’ of a penny machine when you win and something about that feels unjust. 🎡💰 It’s a right of passage to experience some kind of cheesy seaside town in childhood and I guess it’s just a matter of ‘when?’.
The boys that made me Mum. 👶🏻👶🏻 I feel so lucky that these two are ours. They might say my name 7000 times a day, make me feel so exhausted that my eyes are going to fall out or push me to the absolute brink, but they’re worth it. Every single moment I’d do again for these two. It’s to be said that the finest thing you can wear around your neck, is the arms of your children and I couldn’t agree more. 👨👩👦👦
So, this was yesterday. When we were trying to capture some snaps for our @mwholidays ambassador entry. 🌎✈️ It turns out that John isn’t great taking direction and I’m just as useless giving it, Patrick wanted to do nothing but dive his hands into the muddy pebbles and throw them into the river. Noah shouted he needed a wee when we were as far away from any toilets as humanly possible (this is his speciality move) and I got in a huff and declared we wouldn’t enter. 😤 It turns out, we did get some sweet snaps, and once the frustration fog had lifted I spent my whole evening putting our post together.

Happy hump day 🐪 I’ve got my sights on the weekend now! I’m hoping tomorrow shares some sunshine so I can take this little cherub to the park, he’s really turning into a little boy and though I mourn his baby days, it’s so lovely to watch him flourish 🌼🌺
And normality resumed today 🎒 Noah was back to school, John back to work and not a glimmer of snow can be seen thanks to some over night rain. ☔️ My Nan always says March comes in like a Lion and goes out like a lamb, I don’t think she’s far wrong and I’m hoping it means we’ll be heading out of the month with some warmer days beneath our belt. ☀️ We’re currently weighing up holiday options and the possibility of sneaking away for a few nights for my birthday. 🏖
‘And though he be but little, he is fierce’ 🦁 Today has been good for the soul, we could properly galavant again after being snowed in for far too long. ❄️ I mean I know it wasn’t the end of the world, and being trapped in your cosy warm house full of food is truly a first world problem, but we nearly ran out of loo roll one day and well - living in a house with three boys it doesn’t bare thinking about what could have been 💩. Here’s to hoping our Sunday well spent, brings a week of content ⛰
‘Where has the outside gone Mum? We’ve not seen it in days’. 🤷🏻♀️ Probably what my toddler would say if he could string sentences together ❄️ I feel like tomorrow is the day though, let’s hope this forecast is wrong and we actually get to see what the earth looks like again - I think I have forgotten. 🌍
Well today was a bit rubbish. If I’m honest as lovely as it is to all be home, we are going stir crazy 🤯 Looking at our third day indoors tomorrow with no sign of it letting up, I love the snow, how it looks and how it can make you feel. But not in March ❄️✋🏽 Hard to believe that this was just last week; the sun shone so bright that day it felt like a midsummers afternoon, now it seems like we’re in Groundhog Day 👎🏼
The face of a captured child 😂 (Swipe left) Patrick thought all his dreams had come true when he managed to slip away from the pincer grip 🐎 I could almost here the ‘run like the wind bullseye’ going off in his head. Unfortunately his baby roll thighs slowed him down and he was once again in the grasp of Daddy - delighted by the fact of course 😔😂 Sorry son, better luck next time. 🍀
Just look at those chubby feet, and even though they’re sometimes stinky - I love nothing more than pretending to gobble them all up. 🐷 Noah was back to school today after the half term break, and though it was nice to have a slightly quieter household, boy oh boy did his brother miss him. 👬
A Sunday well spent brings a week of content 💐 I hope you’ve all had a fantastic day. I’m just about to hop into a bubble bath and then snuggle up on the sofa to watch some more crimes that shook Britain 📺.
Ready, steady, GO! 🌈 Happy Saturday folks, nothing much going on over here apart from a long walk to blow the cobwebs away. 🕸 I was weighing up our options for tomorrow, and really debated heading for the seaside but I’m not entirely sure an English beach in February is going to provide much amusement for two rambunctious boys. 🍭🎡 SO, we’re out of ideas. What’ve you got planned for the your Sunday?
Morning star shine, the earth says hello ☀️ I don’t though, I’m shattered. A certain mister (we’ll mention no names PATRICK) is sleeping horrendously. If he isn’t up throughout the night, then he decides 4am is the apt time to start his day 😴 What is this torture that I am blessed with a heavy sleeper who enjoys lay ins, but also a mini sleep thief who thinks snoozing is for the weak 🤷🏻♀️🤦🏽♀️ Can we NOT hun ✋🏽
Behind the scenes 🎬Instagram hides a multitude of sins doesn’t it? Let’s take a minute to appreciate what is actually going on here, so we have Noah who is on his absolute A game, pose on lockdown and a cheesy smile to die for, a true child of instagram dreams 🥇📸 Aaaaand then we have P, it might look like he is gazing at the river in wonder but in actual fact I have a pincer like grip on his hand as he is pulling with such force if I let go he will be in said river 💦❄️. Does he care? No. Except what he doesn’t realise is Momma knows best and given the fact he causes holy hell when I lean him back in the bath to wash his hair, he’s probably not going to like an icy cold river in February. Just saying you know son 🤔
We loved our Mummy, Daddy, Noah day yesterday and so did this little one. 👪 He was a total gem in the cinema, and though I didn’t really rate Ferdinand, he did. Loudly telling us ‘all of it’ when we asked what his favourite part was 😏😂 Today I am working 💪🏼 but I am about to make some eggs on toast for lunch and mindlessly scroll through Insta for 20 minutes, that’s what lunch breaks are for right? 🤷🏻♀️
Park frolics today with the team. Did anyone else have glorious sunshine today? ☀️ Well, as glorious as the sun can be in February. It was lovely nonetheless and it made me super excited for summer 🍦🌸
These two have been HARD this week, constantly working each other up and bickering. And it’s not even half term yet 😂🤦🏽♀️ Pray for me? Thankfully next week John is off a few days and I’ve got an exciting Mummy & Noah day penned in which I truly can’t wait for. ❤️
Sunday evening routine done ✔️ The boys have been fed, bathed, read to and put to bed, now it’s time to relax! 🙌🏼 I kid, now just to wash, dry, fold & put away two loads of washing, write a blog post and edit a shit tonne of photos. 🤦🏽♀️ Anyone else feel like their Sunday has been non stop?
We FINALLY got snow! ❄️ Though the picture didn’t quite capture it, it was coming down so heavy. We shoved our hats and gloves on and headed out as fast as we could, so we couldn’t exactly build a snowman ☃️ or go sledging but we did catch snowflakes on our tongues and drew pictures in the snow 🌨
