Our weekend in Pictures

Hey guys! It's the end of the school year for us this week and I cannot wait! Although it's lovely that the kids age gap means that I have this time with Mabli whilst Wilf is at school my happy place is when we're all together each day.

Wilf loves school (like LOVES it, can't wait to go each morning kind of loves it) which I feel really thankful for. I was always open to discuss different types of schooling if he didn't and I'd be the same with Mabli or if either of them found it different in the future. On that note bear with me for being a proud mum but Wilf got his school report and he is exceeding expectation in just about every subject, that boy is such a smart cookie!

Over the weekend we went to visit our local botanical gardens as they had an exhibition on and it was such a lovely day. I made a little vlog about it which I'll pop at the bottom of this post if you fancy a watch.

I thought I'd share some pictures we took last week too into this post, they don't really fit in any kind of post but wanted to share anyway. The below made me laugh so much, I ordered a calzone in our local pub and it came out bigger than my head ha! I do love a good challenge!

Don't you just love our matching DM's!? They were a gift (although there was no expectation to post) and I loved us twinning so much I asked Tom to take some photos of us both in them. I remember when Wilf had his first pair when he was a toddler too, they are just so cute!

Roll on Friday and school being out for summer!


It's officially the summer

It's officially the summer! How did this year fly by so fast? And whilst we're in the middle of a heatwave, we were thrilled when Dyson got in touch to offer us their Pure Cool Advanced Technology Purifying fan to see what we thought. Scroll down to the bottom of the post to see how we've found it so far

Its no secret that as a family we are big fans of the Dyson brand, we own their humidifier, vacuum and I recently treated myself to the hairdryer too (game changer). One of the things that is a big selling point for me before we even go into effectiveness is the general aesthetic. You want something that is going to live in your home to be as beautiful as it is functional and Dyson hit the nail on the head every time in my opinion.

The 360o HEPA and Carbon Filter captures 99.95% of allergens and pollutants. The Air MultiplierTM technology projects clear air throughout the room.1) LCD display automatically senses particles and gases in your home and reports real-time air quality. I love the the the LCD display automatically senses particles and gases in your home and reports in real-time the airy quality. It oscillates up to 350 degrees to ensure it making each corner of the room as pure as it can be and well as cooling the room at the same time.

That being said in the winter when you don't want a breeze you can set it to just purify by projecting the air through the back of the machine so it's something that can be in your home all year round. We've been using the product for just over a week now and love it, another brilliant piece of kit from the Dyson brand that doesn't fail to disappoint.

The Dyson Pure Cool Advanced Technology fan comes with a two-year guarantee.

What I Wore in a Week

Helloo! Just wanted to pop this little video I did here on 'what I wore in a week' it was a super fun one to do with my friend SJ Hope you like it xx


A little catch up

Today marks a year since Tom handed in his notice at the university! It felt particularly noticeable to me yesterday when it was Wilf's sports day. Although Tom's old job was actually fairly flexible he still had to leave after the first hour and this year he was there the whole (two and a half hours!) and was able to take part in the dads race. I know that was so important to Wilf so I was feeling particularly grateful that we are were we are now.

It's funny looking back that I mentioned in this Q&A video that Tom leaving his job and us both working together was part of the bigger picture. I didn't really anticipate that happening for another 5 years so when we made the decision only a few months later it was amazing.

We'll be coming up to a year this August and I think I was finally sit down with Tom and run through any questions anyone might have about our decision (I have been promising to do this for over 6 months now whoops). It's not lost on us that all this was possible because of the support of you guys so for that I will always be so grateful!

Anyway I wanted to jump on a do a bit of an update (it feels like forever since I've done that, I blame the heat!)

The kids have been so much fun lately, they are playing with each other more and more and the gap between them seems like it shrinking. That being said Mabli is at an age where she is prone to winding Wilf up and being a leetle unreasonable to get her way. I'm so proud of how patient Wilf is with her 90% of the time and the other makes me want to scream 'can you two play nicely for like 5 minutes! ;))

I took a few selfies and wondered for the ten millionth time 'fringe or no fringe'

I met up with some lovely pals included this beaut Molly in the very instagramable Albatros Cafe in south Bristol.

We ate watermelon and my knees looked like angry little babies ;)

Me and Mabli played lots of silly games. I absolutely love this age, she is such a little character! I think when Wilf was two and a half I started to feel like I wanted another child for the first time because it was just such a wonderful stage of our lives. We are defo done with having any more kids so I need to just soak up these lovely ages!

We also ended up dressing up as three lions haha, actually it was four lions..and we looked more like tigers. It made NO SENSE! but was fun all the same

Tom turns 36 in a week and we're not planning anything big (actually we never plan anything big so I don't know why I said that) especially with moving soon. I am going to take the kids out to pick up little gifts they picked out and then I think we're just going to go out and eat pasta.

We've been half enjoying the sun half melting in the heat. I know it wont last much longer so I'm trying my best not to complain but the evenings are the worst when it's still 29 degrees in their room (even with two fans!).

I think thats it for the past couple of weeks, I'm trying to update my shop my instagram page too so check over there.

Are you coping in the heat? whats been your favourite thing over the past fortnight? I'd love to know!
