He’s your biggest fan.

Happy father’s day @bobbyburrage. He loves you to pieces (and so do I) xxx

We’ve had the perfect day at @nor_folk_stays, have a look at stories. Boats & a barbecue.

@molo’s World Cup collection.

Our dream came true. On Friday we got the keys to this 1920’s cedar clad cabin on the Norfolk Broads (@nor_folk_stays). We’ve actually been looking at houses, flats, cottages, cabins and just about everything in between for five years now. When we viewed it (on my birthday) we just knew it was the one and made an offer that day. You might have already seen I’ve been posting some behind the scenes on @nor_folk_stays. This is going to be a dedicated account for the ‘Water Cabin’. We’re sympathetically renovating the space with a little extra help from a local carpenter. Our aim is to have it finished by October/November this year and then it’ll be bookable via Airbnb. I’ve not stopped smiling since we got the keys, I can’t wait to start the landscaping on the garden this weekend. Sharing this journey with Stanley is absolutely priceless... You can see more 👉🏻 @nor_folk_stays #NorfolkBroads

Who said size matters...?
I for one love every inch of our 35sqm roof terrace. We went to measure up the cabin today (see stories). And that’s equally compact, but I love the challenge of a small space. Should be completing in a couple of weeks 🤞🏻🤞🏻 and I will share the renovation on here (it will soon be available to let for holidays). Hope you guys got to enjoy the sun this bank holiday ✨✨ #CityLiving

Exploring the world with my little love brings an entire new dimension to travel... ✨✨ Where I take the underground & DLR as a given, for Stanley, London was one giant amusement park. He excitedly stopped pedestrians to point out the trains! London is my favourite city (I grew up just outside East London in Essex). Swipe through to see what we got up to and check out the Journal for our more detailed recommendations. We stayed central at @mercurelondonbridge and this was taken on the terrace. Our next two trips are still to be decided. Bath, Manchester, Liverpool or Brighton are all possibilities... Wherever we go, it’ll definitely be an adventure! Recommendations gratefully welcomed 🙏🏻

So April was a big month for me. I had a birthday but, more significantly, I made my first solo trip to Lisbon. This was pretty big as I’d never had a night away from Stanley (aged 5) at that point. Did I cry(?) of course, and I missed him like a limb BUT I did have the most indulgent gastronomic experience of my life at the ‘Food & Flavours festival’. I don’t make any attempt to hide how much I love Portugal. It’s a great, great country, super chilled, friendly people and awesome weather. Walking around Lisbon and visiting my favourite museum without a child was an entirely new experience - I definitely returned refreshed. If you want to read about my first solo trip - and see some of the mouth-watering food - click on the link in my bio. Lisbon ‘we’ will be back very soon 🙏🏻 #ILoveLisbon

Spent some time in the company of these majestic creatures today. Really quite humbling. This fella was definitely giving me the eye... For anyone concerned the seals were totally unfazed and the beach was seriously quiet. Have a look at stories... I’ve never seen so many together! Showed Stanley as soon as I picked him up tonight, he said wow. Thanks so much for the tour today @millfarmecobarn. I 🖤 Norfolk.

Still feeling a state of zen after our first trip to Andalusia. That sunshine, incredible food and beautiful scenery was just the tonic after a busy start to the year. We stayed at @casa_la_siesta near Vejer de la Frontera whilst we explored the local area. If you fancy a read, I’ve written a journal post about our stay.

Dieter Rams is one of my favourite designers (and thinkers). He said ‘having small touches of colour makes it more colourful than having the whole thing in colour’ - a philosophy we’ve unintentionally embraced in our home. Last month, we were asked by furniture store @nest_co_uk to incorporate the Pablo UMA sound lantern into our family lifestyle. Aesthetically, it seamlessly blends into our home with its rose gold glow, and it also streams music with a lovely rich sound. I love a multifunctional piece. Head over to @nest_co_uk to see more photos from our weekend with the Pablo UMA sound lantern ✨✨

That smile says it all... Today he’s swam, planted melons, painted and eaten churros. We’ve had an absolute blast in Vejer staying at @casa_la_siesta. We’ll go home tomorrow refreshed & recharged 🙏🏻✨✨

Serenity right there ✨✨🇪🇸
