Do you ever wonder while you are flipping through Instagram of Facebook how others keeping up with the life they lead? For me, I like being busy and always having a full schedule with my kids but I often see others going twice or three times what I do and I think how on earth do they do it? Is there a secret I am missing here somewhere or over looked a magic wand in an alley way? These days I find myself wanting to do more but not being able to find the time to fit it in. At the moment I am just keeping up with life as best I can.
If you follow us on ig stories you will already know how bad our house problems are with a bad leak. A seven year leak to be exact. Our toilet was slowly leaking all these years behind our wall having been installed wrong. It’s costs thousands in damages and many floors and walls had to come up. It’s been a nightmare when we just got planning permission through to start the loft conversion. Typical when it rains it pours with houses.
THIS WEEK I AM LOVING…
I plan on reading as much as possible on holiday while still enjoying some Italian fun too. I always love getting airport books and laying by the pool or sitting on the patio as we have our own deck on our accommodation. I think putting the kids to bed and sitting with a glass of prosecco and a good book sounds like a great way to recharge my batteries or with my laptop and get some work done in the sun. It’s a win-win. I am so grateful I can work from anywhere. It’s one of the perks at being able to go away when I have been deadlines and still being able to holiday and make those deadlines. I am learning how to have balance between the two and feeling more calm of my life balance lately. It all stemmed from taking two solid weeks without a phone that really abled me to see from a different perspective. I will be sharing more on that later… any good holiday reads for me to try out???
I am sure you have now heard we are off to Lake Garda to stay with Eurocamp as part of a collaboration with them. We are staying in one of their Bellia Italia accommodations in Peschiera del Garda. I can’t wait to ride bikes around the lake with the kids, swim in the pools, try out their holiday clubs for the kids, and get baby splashing about too. He loves the water. The kids are in need of some sunshine and a break from school. We will be off to Verona for the day, catching the train straight from Peschiera. We also will be going to Gardaland for a fun day out with our friends as they are also staying at another Eurocamp just down the road. Have you been to a Eurocamp before???? Don’t forget to watch our ig stories and keep up with our Italian adventures.
Few weeks ago we had a lovely time at Thinktank (not a collaboration) just a great family day out with friends. Lucy and her crew from Dear Beautiful came to meet us and make some good memories. Check out our little fun filled video of our seven children between us. We had our hands full and it was so fun.
I am all about the hats for holiday and summer time. I have to protect my skin at my age now and I love the look. It’s funny how trends change your feelings about certain styles as I always hated a hat previously on me. But I am getting braver on trying new looks. I still don’t feel a 100% confident wearing them but when I see photos I love it so I am will on wearing them bravely…
I made a laundry room transformation. Did you see the before and after photos on my instagram? I didn’t realize what a dumping ground it had become for us as a family of five. I love the finished look, come have a peak at How to Style a Laundry Room .
We also have so much to still share with you on our recent America trip where we took over Atlanta. The kids had so much fun with all their cousins at my brother’s wedding. It was great to get us all together for such a happy celebration after a sad year of losing my Dad, my Grandma, and my Cousin. May they be watching over us all and here in spirit on these joyous occasions.
