Instagram Weekly 27th June – 3rd July

Instagram Weekly

It’s such a beautiful morning here; the sun is out, the kids have happily gone off to school and I have had a really good 6lbs weight loss this week making a total of 3 stone 11lbs lost altogether and only a stone away from my original goal! I’m so proud of what I have achieved this year, no slimming clubs just pure determination, healthy eating and exercise! I feel so good about myself! I don’t feel like I am on a diet at all!!

We’ve had another great week, it’s been very kid focused this week after spending last weekend away at #BML16 I was determined to get lots of family time in this week. It’s been a lovely week 🙂

Anyway here are my favourite photos from my Instagram account from the last week…

On Monday I enjoyed some time with this little dude whilst Boo went off to Brownies. I love it when I get to spend one on one time with each of mine, I love to make them feel like they are very special to me 🙂

I could probably take this photo 6 out of 7 nights in our house at bedtime, they always turn very mischievous at that time of night and are always giggling.

Relaxing in his Lush bath. He had never had a Big Blue bath bomb before and was horrified by all the seaweed inside it! He soon got used to it though and pretended he was relaxing in the big blue sea 🙂

Love this little face. ? #day183 #sonia2016366 #project366 #instagram366

Daddy went off shopping on Saturday so we went for a long walk and ended up in the park having ice creams! Our local park sells the best ice cream!

I'm rather glad to be home and drinking coffee after an exhausting day at National Trust Hardwick Hall today. Maxwell has been such a pain all day and it has totally worn me out.

Ok so yesterday wasn’t quite so perfect, it was really stressful! Bugs had a rather naughty day and it really exhausted me, you wouldn’t tell from the photos I took though 😉

It was truly beautiful at Hardwick Hall today ?

We visited the National Trust’s Hardwick yesterday, it was absolutely beautiful! I did manage to stop and see the beauty around for a little while. 😉

    Aww what lovely pictures, such happy little people. We were at Hardwick on Sunday, it is a truly beautiful place and such history in those walls. I need to focus on more time with the family, so hard with such busy lives. Hope you are well x

    Ha, those Lush bath bombs are a menace aren’t they! I’m forever picking little bits of whatever out of the bath…still, at least they smell nice and the kids love them of course 🙂

    I love how close your children always look, they don’t look like forced cuddles at all, they look like they genuinely love each other x

    There is something about going to Brit Mums,all the hustle and bustle of the city and no kids that makes you value family time so much after. I’m glad you managed such a lovely week with plenty of fun things together.

    One on one time is so precious. I need to focus on doing more with each of the boys. I love all these pictures and I love that I am not alone finding lush bath bombs a pain to clean up after.
