Our SUP Club ’Paddle to the Pub’ was a roaring success last night 🏄🏽♂️🏄🏾♀️ 34 of us enjoyed another amazing sunset 🌅 A refreshing beer outside the Crooked Billet 🍺 Then lights on for a mellow night paddle back in the dark 🌑 #supsect#supclub#nightpaddle

This was an image I was going to post today, from last March! And it just so turns out today we had our first snow in #leighonsea
Just call us half-term heroes!
If you're stuck for ideas to keep the kids entertained we've got a handy little blog post detailing all of the best things (in our humble option) to do in Leigh-on-Sea!

Join me @create98leigh on 26 September for an afternoon hand embroidering a local landmark. Everything’s provided (including tea and cake, I think!?), and I’ll teach you how to stitch, sketch and colour in using needle and thread. You don’t need to have tried embroidery before - you don’t even need to know how to draw. Booking link in my bio ☝️ See you there! x
*NEW SUPPLIER* I'm really proud to sell my Old Leigh prints and linen teatowels at the beautiful shop, Puddle & Goose in Leigh on Sea. Puddle & Hose is a family run shop selling a gorgeous range of unique gifts and homeware. @puddleandgoose
If you fancy a bite to eat with your afternoon coffee, but feel guilty when tucking into a sweet-treat, why not try one of nat&co.’s delicious products? Packed with fresh, natural ingredients they are a delightful and delicious alternative to cake - plus they are packed with fibre, vitamins and minerals - helping fill the hole before your evening meal.
#NotAnAD - I took this picture of Teddy on staycation with her @primark exclusive @loveimperialleather Mallow’mazing travel products as a pitch for an advert. But we didn’t get it! Nevertheless, I thought I’d pop it on the grid as it’s one of the few pictures I took in the beautiful garden of our staycation cottage. It had a stunning view! And it’s just a cute picture of Teddy!.
For those of you not doing adverts on your grid, the most usual way of getting a paid advert on Instagram is to see a company looking for collaborators on the @Tribe app then go buy the product yourself, try and follow the requirements to make a unique (but not too unique) image and blurb to pitch to the company. It’s either approved and you publish it or not approved.
Generally, I quite enjoy the challenge but recently it’s been rejection after rejection and although I know they can’t accept all the pitches, it’s demoralising to keep getting rejected!.
I also know it’s a bit of a controversial topic. Some mums have told me that they hate seeing ads, others say they’d do it too if they had the minimum 3000 followers. Do you do it? Do you mind seeing ads? Or do you really really hate it?.
Me? I don’t mind the odd #ad here and there. I understand that there’s a lot of stay at home mums out there with no income and it’s a nifty way to make a few ££. What I don’t like is when ads, gifts and free tickets aren’t clearly marked! Or if the whole feed is 100% ads, which some of the big ones are!!.
I’m feeling so thankful that I can walk along the beach on my way home from work. Tonight, Benedict & the pup met me from the station & we picked up some seafood on our way & had a chat about our week ahead. The simplest of things, but it makes me feel ever so grateful.
What a week! - We’ve finally moved into our new home and we’ve spent the whole of the last three days moving things about! We had to move everything we’ve had in the last month from the cottage to the house in our car and then yesterday an articulated lorry full of our stuff arrived! We’ve had to unpack all that and then take all the rubbish to the tip! I’m so exhausted and I’ve got so much more to do!!.
Here we are in a brief moment of calm enjoying a seafood lunch overlooking the sea at @thepeterboat on Leigh. At the time, I was annoyed that there was nothing we could just grab and go for lunch but actually it’s probably the nicest couple of hours I’ve had so far this weekend! It’s so important to take a bit a break 🌊.
