I couldn't believe it when I saw each and every flavour of this good stuff on holiday, though, turns out it isn't that good anymore. I can't quite work out if it always tasted a little crappy or they've changed the ingredients - either way, Noah did not turn orange 🍊
Patrick had his first feel of sand between his toes last week, and shockingly he wasn't trying to eat it? He was however trying to dash onto the scalding hot sand from beneath the shade and dive onto his brothers carefully built sandcastles. It's safe to say we didn't last very long on the beach, I'm more of a pool mom. 🐬
My day has to start with a coffee, I'm not sure I would like the person I'd be if I didn't get that. It's kind of strange because before children (ahh, yes remember those days?) I actually detested it, yet now it's relied upon. ☕️ It's a super short working week for me this week, as I'm actually doing something a little different the next couple of days 🙌🏼 How's your Wednesday looking?
M O N D A Y 🍭 It feels so long since we've had a Monday at home, today is Noahs day to go swimming with Nana so it's just me and Patrick pottering around at the minute and suddenly the holiday blues have washed away. I have missed routine, our slow Mondays and crazy week, I've missed a hot coffee on the sofa with the boys play with each of their toys. Dare I say it feels good to be home? Monday's are never hard for me now it's my day off, but I once saw a quote that said something along the lines of 'Sharks don't care it's Monday, they're swimming around biting stuff and acting fierce, reminding everyone they're a fucking shark - be a shark' so today, I'm doing just that 🦈
This boy though ❤️
It's back to reality today, we're now home and unpacked with both boys firmly snuggled up and fast asleep. I don't know how we lucked out with them both sleeping again on the plane, but it was dreamy. We've been non-stop since 6am so now it's time to relax 🍸✈️
H O L A ! 🇪🇸 Good morning, it's a little cloudy so far today so we are making the most of the slow morning. P is down for a nap, Noahs watching some programme on trains and I'm sipping on a hot coffee. I'm not sure what else we have planned other than pool frolics , but as our evening out ideas went a little awry yesterday me and John shall definitely be doing that tonight for some tapas and cocktails. I can't believe it's already Thursday.
M O R N I N G ☀️ Today we're heading off to meet my Dads mum & stepdad for drinks on the beachfront. They've not seen Patrick since last August so it will be lovely to catch up. This evening me and John are being set free 🍸As my nan is watching the boys so we can go and have some drinks, not sure how many though as John has committed himself to climbing the mountain tomorrow 🙄🙊 How gorgeous is this villa just across from my parents, it reminds me of santorini.
Birkenstocks & Pom poms. How has your Tuesday been? We've spent the day lounging around the pool and enjoyed taking boys out and the P out for a little go on his trike. We stumbled upon a lot of damage from the fires that broke out here last year, ruined crops, burnt down trees and even cars that were destroyed. My parents where so incredibly lucky not to lose their villa as unfortunately 20m up the road the story isn't the same.
S W I M T I M E 🏊🏼 The love is strong between these two, complete peas in a pod yet polar opposites. They're having a ball together on holiday, and it's so lovely watching their relationship grow every day. I can't wait to see how it develops over the next few years - my best boys 👬 // These fab swimsuits are UV protected and from @simplyswimuk #ad
No Monday blues here, just another morning in paradise. Noah has already been begging to get into the pool for the past hour, that boy is such a water baby but I am afraid his skin might prune he's been in the water so much 🙊🏊🏼 We don't have much planned today but I think a trip to the beach is in order, as I have promised him we'll be building some sandcastles 🌊
This is life for us right now and it's pretty amazing. The weather is unbelievable and the boys are being absolute gems, they even both slept on the flight - at the SAME time 🙌🏼😱 Me and John are already thinking about a September trip, sans children as we know we'll feel blue when we are home ☀️ (also £12 for a giant flamingo - yes please)
Patrick's a poorly boy. A lot can be said for motherly instinct, I knew after 3 high temperatures in the last 12 hours we needed to get a closer look. I'm so thankful we did as he's been suffering with both a chest and ear infection - my little tater tot. Let's get you better before holiday this week ❤️
Just one week, seven whole days and we're off. I can't even put into words my excitement, a holiday is so overdue.
Oh baby blue ❤️ I can't wait for this one to feel the Spanish sun on his skin next week and dip his chubby trotters in the cool water.
Hello Monday - let's do this 💪🏼

What else to do when the youngest is poorly? Bake with the eldest of course! 🎂🍪🍳 Easter was last weekend, but we received a beautiful parcel from Waterwipes, and with Noah being away with my parents at the time and Patrick currently poorly, thus making us housebound - we're going to #getmessy this weekend. 😋 Crispie cakes nailed, it's now time for some Easter egg moulding! 👌🏼 How's your weekend going?
We're missing this little one a LOT now. It's been four whole days since we've seen him, and though we FaceTime everyday and he's having a whale of a time frolicking in the sun - I still feel as though part of me is missing. 😔 You drive me around the bend 90% of the time Noah, but gosh I love you ! (Ps. He's on holiday with my parents in case anyone is new here!)
HAPPY EASTER 🐣 I hope you're all having a wonderful day filled with family, egg hunts and chocolate. I'm not sure I am enjoying how quiet the house is without Noah this week, I miss him dreadfully. 👎🏼 But, I did awake to 1000 of you over on my Facebook page (link in bio) which gave me a little perk up, I've always found Facebook the hardest to grow so to accomplish that in 4 months makes me quite proud 💪🏼
