As you'll see in insta stories, we have been attempting to bake a cake. It is now cooling... but this is clearly the best bit...!! #cookingwithkids #storyofmum #lickthebowl Beetroot love. I tried to capture the various stages of the yummy beetroot, chickpea, carrot and alfalfa salad and quick cook steak tea I made tonight in my insta stories, (thanks to @riverford) in case you want some fresh family meal ideas.

Miraculously, it was easy and tasty and the kids actually ate it!! The kitchen is now purple however... #storyofmum #easyhealthy #familymeals #beetroot #ilovehearts #finditineverything What a sky this morning! 
Watching the clouds and showers roll through with the waves puts me in mind of what seems to be a new and intriguing peri-menopausal phase of my life right now - where great lows and irrational angers can roll in for some pretty intense internal weather, and then pass on again leaving sunshine and bemusement: Wake up, wake up... Good morning.  Still not in the sea so the sea came to say hello 😍

#storyofmum #goodmorning #instafilm #makeasplash Ohhh it's cold but I wish I was well enough to get back in there. Not long now I hope (even though the thought scares me quite a lot too!) I don't really know yet how to walk the line between immune boosting and pushing my body to get really cold before it's recovered, so today I just get to soak up the view before getting back to work. And sharing that with you too. 
#storyofmum #goodmorning #januarysea Precious mama me-time: don't forget to give yourself some today. 
Like these three beauties did yesterday at our Mamas' Retreat ❤️❤️ #mamasretreat #storyofmum #mamametime
