Alexis Allan  A record of these days that slip by in the blink of an eye. For tips of what do in London with kids find me over at @alondonchildhood

🌊 🏄‍♂️ my little surf crew - all 3 managed to stand up. (I was inside for most of the time doing 🧘‍♂️)

Had to stop and take this on the way to work today ‘cos it was sooo pretty - even though I was already late 🙄
But also, after a shit-show yesterday morning where I felt I was the worst mother ever, this morning was lovely and calm... amazing what a difference a day makes, (I think it would have gone well even before I saw the card and flowers from @baggiero - but obviously they sealed the deal...) so here’s to beautiful mornings and being allowed to be good some days and crap some days and SPRING because I’m definitely feeling it coming... AND before I go HALF TERM!🙌 Yessssss a week of lazy mornings starts tomorrow for us - want to take advantage of our inset day tomorrow and do something London-y which I can big up on @alondonchildhood but I just cannot decide what to do... Dior? Bonnard? Natural History hangs when it might be a wee bit quieter?
Hoping my good-mood is contagious to you all... x

Just 10 minutes practice a day ... good intentions. Just watching this scene and musing on how our routine constantly shifts, Monday night has become this lovely 2-1 time with Henry as Coco is out and visa-versa on Wednesdays when Henry has a late club. Feels like only yesterday that 7pm was when I was leaning over a bathtub getting splashed. Miss those days but love our now.

I think this weekend might have been our last camp of 2018, and what a lovely way to see our camping season out, laughing until I nearly cried, amazing food and kids swinging on an old tire in pjs. The golden days I’ll be looking back on this winter. Feel sad that we won’t be camping this weekend at @goodlifeexperience but due to last years drama we are taking a year off from that one... will miss it though! *last photo is not mine... just love it though*

Norfolk rides, Norfolk skies...

Don’t want these lazy days to end...

Last night when I spoke to Henry on the phone to say good night I told him I missed him... his answer “but you said you wanted a break from me” hmmmm, yes that is true too, I did say that 💔😔. One more sleep till I see them again. In other news we’ve been doing what we always do when we have kid free time... rearranging the furniture! What do we think about this painting in the downstairs loo?? Scroll to see...

Left these two in Wales 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿... feeling 😔&😆 the REAL holiday starts now...

Me “Henry, do you want to swim in a waterfall pool?” Henry: “yes, probably, definitely! Maybe...” He was first in. Coco wins for first to the falls, hugh wins for getting his head under. I’m regretting not swimming. #ourwelshholiday #wildswimming #wildkids #childhoodunplugged #momentsofmine #motherhoodthroughinstagram #justswimmingoutsideinanaturalplace << that hash tag is for you @amandabanhamceramics

Last time I was here (for @sisterhood_camp ) @coldatnight said, just bring your family for the weekend, so I did and it’s been wonderful. Thanks for the coasteering suggestion @coralie_blamo_rose - went today and fair to say I was totally outdone by my children, quickest way to feel like an old lady 👵

When you’re camped right on the beach you can be first in the sea... #ourwelshholiday - gorgeous sunshine today but 2 days of rain forecast for our next stop at @fforest - any tips for wet weather things to do around Cardigan??

Remembering when Henry used to call lily pads iPads. #modernlife #ourwelshholiday
