Our weekend in pictures, a little diary of what we get up to at the weekends together.


Thanks for sticking by me whilst we have spent most of our weekend in the garden! When I started these posts, I wanted to capture our real life moments, and that includes when you have a big project on that needs a lot of your time. We do pretty much everything ourselves, so things take much longer. So if you have been following the progress, and haven’t spotted the reveal, please head over to the garden reveal and take a look.  Just please ignore the dead grass, it was delivered like that! 

Saturday 3rd June 2017

Our car was in the garage, and we had a courtesy car, however poor Gus wasn’t allowed in it, so pavement walks it was for him. So we popped to the village, library, park and a walk all together. 

I’ve been waiting for it to be warm enough for the girls to be able to wear these outfits! Super cute

Sofia has been desperate for these sweets, you can take a challenge with your friends on who can have the sweet in their mouths the longest! They are pretty sour! She has been hunting these down, everywhere, and finally she found them!

Since doing the new garden the kids have happily gone out in the garden to play, and to chill out in. That’s just what we wanted. Please grass GROW!!

We needed a family explore, so we took the kids along to Mottisfont National Trust, and do the kids play trail. 

It was so nice for us not to do anything that we HAD to do, and nice to spend some proper time with the kids again, doing what we all love, exploring and playing. 

Saturday night was Britain’ s Got Talent Final, and the kids had been watching it all week. So we all snuggled up and watched it together!

Sunday 4th June 2017 

We woke up again to some sad news about the London attacks again, I just wish things could be more peaceful and that people didn’t feel the need to do this. 

After the usual Sunday morning of swimming lessons, and walking the dog, we had a slow morning. However afternoon came and we need to get exploring again! So we headed off out to Hinton Ampner National Trust. 

I was completely out of my comfort zone today, I had this dress sent to me to review from JD Williams (full blog post!). I had to pose and boy did I stress!! Hubby captured me being silly when Tyler came over to photo bomb the photo! Grabbing a cuddle, at the same time!!

It was so peaceful to walk around though, no time constraints and to stop and smell the flowers. 

I was planning on taking these photos without the kids around, however due to the bad weather due this week, I thought I best not risk it, as today was a nice day. See this picture…..this is why it’s easier without the kids!!

My little ones by my side, I really love them. 

If you watched One Love Manchester concert, I hope you enjoyed it as much as we did. What an amazing thing to do, and I have so much respect for Ariana Grande now. I didn’t know much about her before this, but she has shown such a beautiful side to her, and bravery. 

If you don’t already follow me on Instagram I also post a daily picture, and at the end of the year I put them together into a Photobook.

Diary of an imperfect mum #PointShoot


  1. Looks like you had a great weekend. It’s been lovely to get out into the garden although this week has been a bit off weather wise.

    • Thanks, it rained as soon as I was able to sit outside and finally enjoy the garden!

  2. I just love the garden! The space you made for the play area is really very thoughtful! wish we had a big garden like yours! I think ours is not even quarter of the space you have 🙂 If I fit a trampoline, there would be no space left I guess! 🙂

    I still couldn’t spot the dead grass even after reading about it in your post! There are so many other great things to spot than this 🙂

    • Ah thank you, what lovely words! The kids really love the play area, bet investment we have ever made for the kids. They use it so much, one big reason we went for this house, as we could see what a nice space it was. Downside was the whole house needed renovating!

      • I understand, But you know what!? I find it quite comfortable when we have the opportunity to decorate/renovate the house just how we like to have! Although more space means more maintenance time, it is definitely lovely to have space to do want we want to do.


  3. Looks like a great weekend. Lovely picture. Your garden looks great, ours is so bare at the minute. I can’t wait to buy some flowers and a new table 🙂

    • Its the little bits that make the difference don’t they, I just have to make sure I don’t kill the new plants now!!

  4. Love your garden! you’ve done an amazing job. I’d never dream of posting photos of mine, it’s embarrassing

    • Thanks! My garden was embarrassing before!! But every other room was done in the house, so thought I best start the garden now

  5. Lovely to get a little peak at your weekend. I absolutely love the garden. It looks like a place where you and the kids are going to have hours of fun (fingers crossed that you get lots of sunshine to enjoy it).

  6. Your garden looks amazing what a brilliant space! I’m sure the grass will grow. I love the photo of your daughter in the grass at Mottisfont. The national trust building Hinton-ampneris beautiful! Thank you for linking up to #PointShoot

  7. Looks like you had a beautiful day out at Hinton and loving the dress – it really suits you!

  8. I love these posts of yours Steph such a lovely memory and your photos are beautiful and so natural too. Do you mind me asking what camera you use? Looks like you had a lovely weekend. Xxx

    • Ah that’s so kind, thank you! I use a Canon G7X, great little camera to take out, and my mobile, Samsung S8.
