Horses and Mocs


 Happy weekend folks..


 we are amidst a wonderful long bank holiday weekend and Hubs is here and not working at all.. its so good to have him back. Today we hit the shops briefly to buy him some sidecutters (?!) and me a new wedding ring, yay! My eternity band (which was my wedding ring) and engagement ring are really loose after loosing weight (stone and half to be precise) , if i shook my hand they fell off! I was so worried i was going to loose them that we got me a new perfect fitting band that keeps them all in place..happy happy happy :) Its silly but i still look down at my wedding rings and love them as much as they day they were given, if anything, with all the scratches and wear from years of being on me, i kinda love them more. They've been through so much, a lot like our relationship, but ultimately they're still the beacon of togetherness that they were from the moment we were engaged many years ago (all together now, ahhhh hahaha)
 After the shops we went to what we call the path, its built parallel to the new road that runs and connects the local villages, its perfect scooting terrain and the kids love to scoot! It goes for miles and is great for going for a long walk all together.
Me above directing the kids how far they can go as they literally just go speeding off.
Check Neo's lil face in this photo.. hes sooo happy on his scooter, his little leg goes ninety to the dozen, its hilarious!



Dress: Dorothy Perkins (back in Spring)
Shoes: Minnetonka 
Bag: Next

 So as you can tell i am super happy to have Paul back with us for the weekend, and hes happy to not be working i imagine. Tomorrow we have another play day planned. Weather permitting its either a big huge park that the kids love or Cardiff Museum.. we shall see, either way, im happy :)
Are you having a good weekend so far?

Oh and yes, i cut a vast chunk of my hair off, gutted as today i was having a terrible hair day for its first preview on the blog, haha, bloody typical, but you can see it more clearly on instagram in this pic, i do love it, its easier and breezier but think im just having a few teething problems, any mid length haired girlies that can give me so advice / tips on styling?

  3. Brilliant shoe choice with your awesome dress! I have been searching for the perfect pair of moccasins for YEARS! Well I just found 'em on your feet! :o)

    My 7 year old son loves scooting more that skating or biking. That might change though since he got a new bike for his birthday.

  5. Rachel that dress is so cute! Love it. My hair is mid length and I think it gives you the best of both worlds, so many options! Although I am a bit lazy with my hair so probably not the best person to advise... P x
