Twinkly Tuesday | Featuring Coombe Mill


Hello! Happy Tuesday to you all. I hope you've all had a great week. As I type this on Monday, I'm feeling quite relaxed after a busy but quiet day at home.  I do love Mondays as its one of my days off and after the weekend, its much needed!

For this week's Tuesday Twinkler, I've chosen an upbeat and inspiring post from Coombe Mill. Fiona has shared a detailed post with what the farm and business achieved through out 2018. Well done on your accomplishments, I'm sure 2019 will be a knock out too!

Gratitude Journal #15


New Dog Coats
Somewhat of a random one, I admit, but we finally got two dog coats for Buddy that properly fit him!  Since he's gained a little weight, his previous one no longer fits round his middle and its been hard finding one that fits him properly all over. We found some online from a website called Woodlands Dog Coats which were very reasonably priced, as well as being very well made. We picked him up a fleecy one for when he just needs to keep warm and a waterproof one. 

Late and Lazy Weekend Mornings 
This weekend we had two slow and lazy mornings with the girls - and therefore us -  not waking until 8am.  On both mornings I got up to feed the cats and Buddy, let him out as usual and then went back up to bed!  Its a rarity!  

A Sunday well spent
Sunday's are usually spent at home, unless we take Buddy out for a long walk. Yesterday we headed out to do the food shop, followed by a trip to soft play for the kids. It did them some good to get out and burn off some energy. Because T was being so good whilst out, despite feeling a bit under the weather (she's caught my never ending cough and cold), he told them we would take them to McDonald's after. Of course they were thrilled! Once we got home, he dropped me off before nipping to see his parents, taking the kids with him. So I grabbed Buddy and took him out for a quick walk. We managed 20 minutes - I'd have liked longer but it was just too windy for my liking!

Books
I dropped some things off at the charity shop last week and managed to leave myself enough time to browse through the books and picked up 5 to bring home. I'm already half way through one and its got me gripped.  

Meal Planning
We're two weeks into the year and so far I've managed to plan out all of our evening meals which I'm really pleased about. Here's hoping I continue to be as organised from here on in, it makes the food shop and mealtimes generally so much easier.

Twinkly Tuesday | Featuring Dirt, Diggers and Dinosaurs


Hello, Happy Tuesday!  I hope you've all had a brilliant weekend and are set up ready for whatever the week may bring.  

I'm hoping the week's linky will see a few more faces joining in, it was a little disheartening to see so few last week but I hope it was because people weren't in the swing of things with it being New Year's Day. Perhaps I was a little too optimistic!

This week's Tuesday Twinkler is an interesting read from Emma at Dirt, Diggers and Dinosaurs. Emma's post is all about her decision to postpone her son starting school and she explains her reasons for doing so. And, for anyone thinking of doing the same, Emma shares some useful links if you would like to read further.

Gratitude Journal #14




Back to School and work
Wednesday was my first day back in the office having been off since the kids finished school. It felt good to get back in and catch up work and my colleagues.  Whilst I was at work, the girls were with my in-laws which they loved and then we stayed for roast when we went to collect them.

The kids went back to school Thursday which I was very grateful for as I woke up with a migraine and it meant I didn't have to worry about looking after them as well. All in all, its good for us to be back in a routine. 

Breakfast with a Friend
I've started this week with breakfast out with my friend L who I haven't seen for a few weeks. We've been trying to organise this breakfast since last August as a thank you to her for making E's birthday cake. It was good to finally make it and have a good chatter about anything and everything! 

Long Walk
Over the weekend D and I took the girls for a long walk with Buddy. We discovered two new, small, parks and stumbled across the local nature reserve which we've only ever driven to before.  I'm enjoying getting out and exploring, although I'd enjoy it even more if T didn't start complaining within 10 minutes of leaving the house!  

Early Birthday Present
Whilst Mum was here, we ordered my birthday present from the Emma Bridgewater sale.  My birthday isn't until February but we took advantage of the sale and I chose a gorgeous 6 pint jug which has already arrived and looks lovely on my sideboard!
