It’s a rather weird feeling adjusting to life after lockdown. We have two of our daughters back to school and one at home still. Clubs aren’t on, there’s no real need to be anywhere and of course, there’s social distancing to navigate our way around. At the weekend we were invited to come along to Godstone Farm‘s reopening. It was …

Siblings 2020 – June

Somehow my favourite photos of my daughters have included animals this month. I love it! June has been an odd month of readjusting to whatever this new normal is right now. We have two of our girls back at school and the family dynamic seems a little broken. It’s been a good month and I am positive. Freya Freya started …

I am trying my very best to document our lives during this uncertain time. All of these moments will be part of our history and things we will talk about for centuries to come. Easter Sunday was very different to how we usually spend it. We usually go to church in the morning to celebrate the rising of Christ, that’s …

Those early weeks of being isolated was a weird time. I enjoyed a slower-paced life, yet felt so much sadness about the life we used to have. It was like grieving for a loss.  We managed to get into the swing of lockdown life and here are the pictures from our third week of isolation.

It’s so much fun looking back on the photos from the early weeks of lockdown. It already seems like such a long time ago yet like it only happened yesterday.

Siblings 2020 – February

Firstly, it’s the 29th of February!! It’s a leap year woohoo. Anyway… I have felt like February has been a long month. The weather has been pretty rubbish and there’s been a half-term in the middle too. I mean, who’s idea was it to have a school holiday when the weather is yuck and nobody wants to spend any length …

The Beach At Bluewater 2018

What does summer time mean to you? For my little tribe it means longer days, ice creams, sand, shorts and sandals (Although Hubby is still refusing to embrace man sandals or flip flops so his feet are so pale!)! We adore summer here. Last year The Beach at Bluewater arrived for summer and we had a great time so I was thrilled …

Bring Me Sunshine!

Since moving home I have definitely become a home body. We used to spend a lot of time out of our old house, getting away from the crowded environment, but our new home is different.

I don’t think the weather has been too kind on us this “summer” and the school holidays were pretty lame weren’t they with regards to the good old British weather.
