I haven’t done a goals post in such a long time, I think I was getting worried that they had become to repetative but I feel inspired by the wonderful Maisie over on her lovely blog Love, Maisie, I wanted to get something down about what I hope to achieve in the month of June… you can read her June Goals here┬ábut onto my goals..


Drink Less Tea – I am beginning to find that I drink far to much tea, I know that’s not exactly a bad thing in the long run but I want to reduce it as I worry what effect that much tea can do to my body and I have found it harder to sleep some nights.

Eat More Fruit – I’ll put my hands up, I do not eat enough fruit, I do go through phases where I will love one type of fruit and after about a month of eating it, I stop completely but I want to stop being so fussy when it comes to food and fruit in general and add more into my diet.

Buy a new lens – I am desperate for a new lens, I have had my eye on one for a while now and it will be the first one I will get with my own money as all the lenses I own are loaned lovingly from my uncle, I want to get this 50mm one I have been looking at but its a case of saving up for OR hoping for a sale.

No More Takeouts – This one is better said than done, as lets face it, its so easy to just pop to the chip shop and get something yummy from there for dinner than cook, more so in this heat but I want to either reduce the amount we have or just stop completely.. wish me luck haha

Stop being so worried – I am a forever worrier, while there is nothing wrong with being too worried, I got to a point this week that I was worried about stupid things like other ladies finding my husband dishy to even being worried I was having a heart attack because my arm hurt.. the reason why it hurt is because I’ve been co-sleeping with Robin and she sleeps on my right arm so its been cramping and sore since.. curse that child.

but I know I have nothing to worry about.. so Im going to really honestly try not to worry to much for this month!

Improve writing – I like how I write, but I worry others don’t like how I write.. basically what I do is write exactly what pops up into my head and hope it makes sense but I want to get better at it, I worry (haha) that I use similar words to often and that my reviews are rushed but reading other blogs and slowing down to take the time with writing will improve it all.

Take videos -I don’t mean to ‘vlog’ but to take videos of days out here and there and share them here on my blog, like if we go to the forest or the beach one day find the time to do a quick video of what we are getting up to, I want to avoid using a camera as much as I can with days out because I always feel it takes away from the day but little clips here and there wouldn’t be that bad.

Learn to edit – This goes along the same lines as above, to take videos one must learn how to video edit, thankfully I do have access to a good software to edit videos but its a learning curve I am exited to dig into.

Plan Ahead – Back when I first started I was very plan and prep, I would schedule posts weeks in advance but with the toddler phase and anxiety I have slipped A LOT with planning and I want to start getting back into the swing of writing, scheduling and prepping posts a few days before they need to go up.

I have really only two social medias that I use for blogging and they are growing nicely if slowly but the fact they are growing is a good thing but I have small goals to meet my small collection of social media;

Twitter – 2,000

Instagram – 300

Hitting 2000 on my twitter would be wonderful, I am 200 away from it at the moment but it goes up and down daily which is fair, its would either be nice to hit 2000 or just 1900 by the end of June, and with my Instagram its slowly getting to 300 so that would be wonderful for month of June now that I am using it more.


..and there we have it, my June goals both blogging related and life related, they seem like a lot but I have full hope that I can get some of those reached!

Until next time


This weeks photo just makes me smile, three children, two of which are playing Minecraft and one who is joining in with a dead controller.

I am always cautious about them playing the Xbox, or even when Kai uses is tablet because i don’t want them to become one of those kids who spend more time with a gadget than with us or reading a book, but for a few hours at the weekend and sometimes at the end of the school day if they’ve been good I will allow them to sit down and build things together, and it’s been wonderful seeing them learn hand eye coordination, cooperation with their builds and the laughter they’ve been sharing as they do stupid things together.

I was always worried they’d never get along, that they’d argue or hate each other but here they all are, sat on the rug playing a game and chatting, laughing and having fun.



This week has been so busy, so much so that blogging took a side step and life took over, it’s been warm and I’ve also had a clingy 2 year old to deal with so when the weekend finally hit I was so glad the children didn’t want to do anything besides play Minecraft on the Xbox.

Robin joined in too with a dead controller.. I do love a calm weekend.




This weekend we went around my mums house for dinner, all of us which is a big change as usually it’s just me and the children, they played in the garden and we all went for a lovely walk to the local park, it was sunny and not to hot either! Perfect little day out!

The children made mud pies and the flowers looked beautiful!

Days are always good when you are with family.



I am forever surprised how fast the months are going now, April was a busy old time for us with my birthday followed by Robins birthday there was plenty of family visits and trips out, the weather was utterly insane this whole month, not as bad as March with the snow and cold, England got hit by a little burst of hot air which made all the flowers spring into life and thus causing the pollen to appear in full force and then finally ending the month back in the cold.

While we did get up to a lot of things during April it honestly doesn’t feel like it with how fast the month went by, we visited my aunt and uncles home when they got back from america to have a wonderful meal, while it was a wet and soggy day it wast just so nice to have all the family together under the same roof.

Mid to end of April with the warmth the bluebells appeared and I wanted to go get my yearly snap that was inspired by a fellow blogger so on a less than warm day we all went into the woods and had such a lovely time exploring around the trees, Robin is obsessed with sticks so had a handful while she walked about with her brother and sister.. we then went and had an ice cream afterwards.

and finally at the end of the month we went along to a supercar show at North Wield airfield which is near Harlow, Kai and I guess myself got a little giddy with all the pretty cars on display, he wanted his photo taken next a red one so we found a lovely red Lamborghini and despite the weather being pretty bad, it was a lovely day out, we ended up heading to the local city of Chelmsford and had a yummy meal out as a family.

Its been such a wonderful family orientated April and I am excited to see what May has for us.
