Valentine’s Day 2017…

Morning! Happy Valentine’s Day for yesterday!

I hope you all had a romantic day!

Valentine’s Day for some people is all about getting away from the kids & having a romantic night away just the two of them. For josh & I, before we had Jude we would go away for a night & spend time together & have a lovely long lay in in the morning, that seems like another life time ago haha! I totally get that people use Valentine’s Day as a little retreat away from the kids & I will totally be doing this when I have a full tribe of my own & need some alone time with my love! But for now I love having Jude involved & spending it with him. While he’s so little I  want to soak every minute of it up before it’s all too late & hes 16 & doesn’t want to see me on Valentine’s Day anymore (let’s not think about that yet or I will 100% cry haha) but this year I had such a lovely day with Jude & I hope I have many more Valentine’s Days like this one!

We don’t really do much for Valentine’s Day in our home, normally josh is working & also it’s super expensive here in the UK to out on Valentine’s Day & it’s super busy so we try and avoid it! This year josh had to work the morning so me & Jude had a lazy morning relaxing on the sofa & suggling & playing games together! If you follow my Instagram you would have seen we had a pretty flower power bath together! Jude LOVED this! I really recommend this! I feel like in the winter it’s really hard to spend a lot of time outside. There are no leaves to find or pretty flowers to explore. I decided to bring some nature into the house, well, into th and bath tub! Jude really was enjoying it though! I let him put them in the bath & he wasn’t even interested in his usual bath toys, he was so happy exploring the different types & colour of flowers! This is something I’m going to try & do more. In there summer he can pick his own flowers from outside & use them for his bath. Also it looks super pretty & it smelt SO good!! Then shortly after our bath, josh came home & we all snuggled & watched Trolls, Jude loved it! He was dancing around the living room to all the music! We had lots more play time with Jude & ate lots of yummy, homemade nice-cream! (If you don’t know what nice-cream is, it’s a vegan version of ice cream. It’s SO good) we then went to see Barney in the early evening. Jude loves him so much & just finds everything Barney does so funny. It’s the cutest! Then we came back up to the apartment & had homemade vegan pizza for dinner & Jude had some avocado, pizza & pear for dinner! That boy loves his avocado haha! Then we snuggled in our pyjamas & watched secret life of pets, again, still Jude’s favourite movie! Jude went down around 7:30 & josh & I had a nice bath together & had tea & biscuits & watched a documentary on Netflix called forks over knives which is amazing!!

That pretty much sums up our valentines this year! I was very lucky with gifts & surprises from josh & Jude this year & I feel so happy & blessed! As much as I love getting some lovely roses & litlle gifts I really feel that Valentine’s Day is a day to be with the people you love & to be thankful that those people are still here with us!

However you spent your Valentine’s Day, I hope it was filled with love, romance & happiness ♥️

My First Post…

A little bit about me & what you will find in my blog (eventually).

So as you can already tell from my instagram, I’m a mummy to an 18 month little bit called Jude. He is my life. Literally. I also am a mummy to my beautiful horse, Barney. He’s had to take a step back in my life recently but we’re slowing getting back to riding more & doing more things together, it’s just taken a LOT longer than I thought it would. I also have a lovely partner called Josh, (26) he’s my everything.

Im trying to be clean eating, eventually hoping to progress to being a full vegan, maybe try to raw till 4 challenge. We will see!

Anyways…I’m 25, I live in a little village in the countryside in Essex, England with my horse who lives below me (it’s nice but sometimes very noisy)

So….what will you see on the blog…We hope this year to see more of our beautiful country, England & travel Europe some more. Maybe even go half way across the world. Who knows. But we have some exciting things panned & we hope you will enjoy reading this blog & coming along with us on our travels 🙂 also there will be motherhood stories, some good, some bad, we all have good & bad days & it’s healthy to see that instagram is a platform you can make look like your life is perfect, but a blog on the other had, I feel is to express yourself. That means all the ups & downs of life & parenting. You will also see some horsey stuff as that’s a BIG part of my life, literally, Barney is 17.1H. Also you will see some clean eating/vegan food/recipes & ideas I would love to share!

So hopefully that didn’t bore you too much & you want to read along more. I’ll try & post 2/3 times a week! (We will see how that goes 🙈)

XOXO
