- I must have heard the question ‘What would you like for Christmas so many times?’ but the only problem is that if I need something, being practical I’ll usually just buy it myself, I don’t like to say what I want! What’s lovely is a surprise and the thought that goes into it but I know for lots of men (my dad and Mark especially), this can be overwhelming 🙈! Therefore JewelStreet’s new Gift Quiz is genius as thought can go into it. It asks a few questions based on style and budget and then generates a few choices that hopefully the lucky person will love! Brilliant idea!! #ad @jewel.street

- Brilliant wee day yesterday where my car broke down at the actual petrol pump blocking all the other cars (note to self for the future, try and keep car semi respectable as all the kind people will come over to try and help), alternator is gone...I don’t even know what that means😭.We were on the way to Holly’s dance lesson so that was missed! Finally got home and to add insult to injury our dog greeted us with peeing on the new tiles which of course I stepped in! Then to round it off in style was up to all hours doing ‘my homework’ as some kind teacher thought it was a brilliant idea to give creating a volcano assignment on the 13th of December 😩...kinda got into it in the end to be fair 😂!! Hoping today fares better, have a lovely Thursday everyone ☕️❤️

- Last weekend the snow fell and created an absolute Winter Wonderland for Holly’s birthday! I remember us all saying that we’d never experienced powdery snow like it, we stayed until sunset and watched how the light twinkled through the snow covered treetops. Using Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 I was able to use their double exposure edit to capture the magic of this day and show how the scenes will always stay close to our hearts! Adobe Photoshop Elements 2018 is available to buy from Currys PC World, check out the link in my bio...perfect for the budding photographer in your life! #PSElements #BestLifeEver #ad

- My Chilli Chorizo and Potato Tapas is one of my family’s favourite meals. Not only is it delicious but because potatoes are the main ingredient, it is filling and healthy. Potatoes are 100% natural, low fat, nutritious with high potassium and fibre content, and are locally grown. Also I'm all about handiness, this takes 15 mins all in and has just 5 different ingredients 🙌🏻 See below for recipe 350g of potatoes thickly sliced 1 red pepper 1 green chilli 1/2 bunch of spring onions 2 tomatoes diced 1 chorizo sausage (225g) Put the potatoes in a saucepan and cover with cold water. Bring to the boil and simmer for 5-6 minutes until tender, then drain. In the meantime, slice the chorizo, pepper, chilli and spring onions. Following this fry the chorizo in a with the pepper for 2-3 minutes. Then add the spring onions, tomatoes and potatoes and cook for 2-3 minutes until heated through. Serve with salad or other tapas! @potatoes_morethanabitontheside #TastyPotatoes #ad

- Izzy choosing a tree for a more sustainable, eco friendly Christmas. We had a real versus artificial tree debate in our house and following research and looking at all the fors and againsts, we’ve decided to go real! We discovered that each tree absorbs approximately a tonne of CO2 over the course of its lifetime (helping to reduce global warming), also producing enough oxygen per acre for 18 people a day. Additionally, they’re a renewable source, 100% biodegradable and our local Causeway Coast and Glens Council offer a Christmas tree recycling and mulching scheme, which is brilliant. To hear what is happening over the water regarding environmental matters, Presidential candidate Hart Cunningham talks about how California is leading the way to fight Climate Change.

- This evening I’ve started creating a photo book as a Christmas gift for my parents and I couldn’t be enjoying it more, relaxed and loving to look back at old photos. I feel that it’s hard to find something more beautiful and meaningful to give than the gift of photography, memories captured that will last a lifetime and beyond. This has been a very stress free process as the app is so simple to use and most importantly produces a photo book which is elegant and beautiful that I just know my mum and dad will be delighted to receive...and probably show off to friends in the future! This app is free to download at both App Store and Google Play @onceuponapp #onceuponapp #ad

- The most innocent of faces, completely untouched as of yet by the demands of society. I’ve been asked a few times what we’re getting Ezra for Christmas, this question slightly floors me, as to be honest it’s probably nothing, he’s not even a year and a half old. I’m quite stubborn and if there’s one thing I don’t like, it’s being dictated what to do by ‘society’. Obviously the act of gift giving is lovely and it’s another way to show love, but as a toddler he does not grasp this concept yet. I don’t want to buy him stuff on a certain day just because it’s judged as ‘the norm’, if he needs something or we want to spoil him a little, we will, when we choose, not because of pressure that it’s the thing to do. There will be no holding out until Christmas, if he adores some toy in November, it’s likely I will buy it for him, rather than you have to ‘wait until Christmas’. It has been the same with the girls and I can honestly say they haven’t grown up spoiled, they don’t want for things, yet they are always grateful. However I do realise it’s hard to escape societal norms as they get older. Last night at work...Monday evenings I run a Creative Space Club for children with disabilities and while we were creating ‘Christmas hearts’ (we’ve a concert on Fri and during Wham they’re giving all their family these hearts...we’re forgetting about ‘the very next day’ 🙈) we did a quick fire round of what immediately comes to mind when they think of Christmas and I could have cried, eyes were glistening. Each one of them came out with ‘friends’, ‘family’, ‘special friends’, ‘baby jesus’ and another ‘turkey’ haha, there was absolutely no mention of presents or material items. You couldn’t have wrote it!! Absolutely in awe of the lovely people I get to spend my evenings with!! So again this year, it’s all about family and friends, being together...and maybe a little bit of turkey!!

- A couple of years ago I trained as a Laughter Yoga teacher and since I’ve come back from maternity leave I’ve been asked to facilitate a number of sessions. I love it and it’s great seeing a room erupt in laughter, yet what is not so fun is the self employed admin associated with it. However I’ve recently downloaded Zervant invoicing software on my phone and it’s excellent (just about to do it here in my laptop too). What it does is take any difficulty away and generates invoices for you. What’s even better is that it is free and completely user friendly! Leaves more time for spreading happiness and positivity!! @zervantcom #zervant #ad
