At their instigation we are all about to set off on a 41km bike ride to raise money for their school charity, Lepra. They have been really inspired and motivated by the stories of suffering and need of those who suffer from leprosy. Let’s hope we can make a small difference to their lives by some super hard pedalling. Proud of my boys. #lepra #charity #helpingothers .

He got so hot in his superman get up, but who ever wins a fight like that with a 3 year old?! I think it’s at least another year till I’ll be able to reason with him. For now I’ll pick my battles! 😂💪 Super proud of my baby boy. .

Who doesn’t love an uninterrupted nights sleep followed by a hotel breakfast?! It’s been 4 years since we got away and I have loved every minute of no washing up, no laundry, not having to look before I sit on a loo seat, and no squabbling. Can we do it again soon please @jedshortridge ?! 🥂😜

This gorgeous little man turned 3 today. I know we all say it, but where does the time go? I do my best to enjoy every minute, sometimes not easy, but watching this little face light up as he opened his pressies today was priceless. Thank you godmother Mel @melridland for this awesome picture! 😘#birthday #happybirthday .

It is such a long time since I’ve been on insta, sometimes life just gets too busy with this lot, and January was wonderful said no one ever 😂. I had 3 ill plus husband for a large chunk of it so good to be out and about again, enjoying precious family time. #familylife .

It’s only an 80 mile 🚗 but now nearing the end of hour 2 and I have caved 🤣. He’s now all happy again and quiet, damn the need for screens, I so wanted to complete a journey without them 😬. Is this a familiar sight for anyone else?!!

And suddenly they’re climbing and you can’t turn your back for a second. At least he was being helpful post Sunday night supper, he has been quite destructive recently. Anyone else got marker pen on their walls?! We seem to have rather a lot 🤣 .

Saturday nights are the best!Nothing beats🔥 📺 with the ones you love the best, (number 1 still in the bath). I got asked for about the millionth time today if I was going to try for pink number 5. Somehow this always suggests to me that my 4 delicious boys are not enough. We are complete, they are perfect, and we are always always overwhelmed with love for this incredible family we have created. Who could ever want more? 💕 .

Simple pleasures are always the best. I swapped the baby gym for a 🐕 walk in muddy puddles, spotting 🐎. He loved it. 🌿 I think we can often over entertain our children, less is more I say. ✨
