Spring break zoo trip

I took my little monkeys to the zoo this week. We have had a hectic and busy first few months of the year. This has been the first week we have been able to chill and spend quality time together.

Luke and Alexander had a fab time at the zoo and it was a nice treat for me to spoil them. They were on their best behaviour. Luke got a bit exhausted towards the end. He was diagnosed with ASD last week. I will write an individual post on this when we receive his full report and I have fully processed how this will change our future.

Today we have cleaned and made banana bread, as the rain has returned. We were lucky to have the sun shining brightly over the easter weekend. We filled our time with gardening, sun bathing, and time at the beach. I have only had to do snipits of work here and there, which is nice. I am coming to the end of my Bachelors degree now, so will have lots of work ahead to complete my final assignments.

Luke decided on whole sea bass and mussels for dinner so I am off to cook for them now!

Big love!

September in North Wales

At year's end


Winter is such a cosy time year. It may be cold outside, but the fire is warm and full of wood and belly's are big and full of food.

Christmas this year was peaceful and relaxing. I wrapped all my gifts in recycled brown paper and decorated the house with pine cones and cinnamon sticks. When there are so many natural items to decorate with, it seems silly that we would buy plastic to fill our homes and landfills. I also LOVE Amazon's gift wrapping. They now gift wrap in these adorable, reusable fabric bags. They started doing this last year and I (obviously) kept them to reuse this year. Not only do they make wrapping gifts easier, they look super cute all bundled up under the tree. Another eco friendly win to end the year with. 

After the hustle and bustle of Christmas and New Year I decided to clean the WHOLE house. Mad I know. I think that really I was just procrastinating from doing the mountain of school and extra curricular activities that I have to do. Even now, I don't feel ready to face it. 

I am looking forward to the new year and I have made a few resolutions. But this year I fully intend to go easy on myself and allow for slip ups. As, you know what? We are all human and we are all enough. 

Have a fantastic 2019!
