Oh how blummin lovely is this time of year?
WEDNESDAY - and I bunked off, and spent some London Gallery time with my lovely sister Pam, up from Wales for a couple of days - now I'm feeling inspired to get creative.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Pam is a #ForestSchool teacher and full of wonderful ideas for nature crafts, however, she's not on instagram YET.... So - inspire us please? 🍁🍂
Who is taking the best autumnal photos this week? 🍁🍂
Can you tell me who we should be following? 🍁🍂
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm feeling a bit out of touch and stuck in my own little circle of instagrammers - who's new that you like? AND who should get some insta love from us?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I will see my Sis again in a week, as I can't wait to get down to Wales and @fforest for #fforestglow - I think there are a couple of places left if you fancy it? Go and chat to Sian @coldatnight as she has all the details! 🍁🍂

Leaf wreath credit, Grandma and my boys.
🍁🍂🍃 Grandad cut the coathanger shorter for us so it was a family effort 😊 happy days.

You can't see me!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Well, yeah, I know you can... what's happening insta people?
How are we all?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I’ve been in hiding - or just a bit too busy - one or the other, or a bit of both but good old Instagram has pulled me back in with a #whpdressup hashtag - I’m not one for “fancy dress” but I do like to dress up - in as much as it’s fun to make an effort in what you’re wearing right? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
As the @amazingdyslexic legend that is @steveedge says: "Dress for a party every day and the party will come to you."
.
I’ve recently been enticed to join a FB group run by @totesinappropriate thank you Rachel @rewclothing for the intro, it’s fun - full of people sharing their slightly quirkier daily outfits; working from home it’s easy to fall into the “jeans and sweatshirt” routine - and it’s good to see that quite a few in the group are into buying ethically, secondhand and sustainably - don’t worry, I’m working on the rest of them too... #fashionsdirtysecrets and all that. 📺 Top tips please - what would you recommend watching on the telly tonight with teenage boys? We are trying TITANIC... we are 10 minutes in and they are groaning... 📺 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big love to the lot of you - I’ve an exciting week ahead of me, hope you have too, Ali x

Morning - and happy Monday.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Do Spend Real life - with old (and young) friends. Sums up the last few days: Just a little autumn walk but what a lovely weekend. (And yes @duckford has a baby under there)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Good to see @grahnort and my lovely @sarahrwright66 on Friday night - both of them #akeeper.
Did get to hang out with friends of all ages, have had the happiest few days - and not thought or stressed about work - bonus.
.
Didn’t get to see the #instakusama (bike helmet nod to the spots) however, DID get to see the #NjidekaAkunyiliCrosby Brixton Tube station artwork though which is cool (See my insta stories). ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Have a fab week, lots of love, Ali x

Evening - so, earlier this week, you may recall, I had a ‘supper crisis’ – ridiculous – baked beans on toast, and only one kid would eat it.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I had completely run out of ideas and inspiration – and I turned to you lot on instagram to vent and ask if anyone does ‘family meal planning’ – and you were all so brilliant, this is just a post to say THANK YOU and to pull together some of the amazing suggestions (see blog post link in bio for some of those fab suggestions and support - oh and there's a link in there to a really ace Meal Plantastic @Pinterest board too) – and wow, I feel better now – glad to know that I’m not alone – beige food is ‘ok’ – we aren’t all living the dream of foraged organic food.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Hah – the irony therefore - look at this photo though – My friend @redtedart and I went for apple crumble with lovely @hellomrsbell and @therealjin.b today - Mrs Bell lives in the ‘burbs and this is all from her garden! – and now I’m asking you for CHARD recipes – and I have to peel all of those blummin apples!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Big love and happy weekend, and oh, Friday is fish and chip night... we've earned it. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Two things tonight - (1) **real life** supper crisis - please can someone help me with a meal plan? I am actually losing it - when it gets to 5pm and I think “I’ve nothing in”, and make beans on toast and only one child will eat it? Well - THAT tonight.... 😫😢 = #hangry (See stories)
And then (2) **instagram life** when I put on my Instagram NO REALLY I AM OK... face and say.... Who else looks at a green garage door and thinks, "oh that would make a great backdrop" - meanwhile your teenage son cycles around the corner on the way home from school and laughs at you and raises his eyebrows... "you're so embarrassing".
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
.
So let’s all have a jolly **GIVEAWAY** 🌷For a chance to win a letterbox bouquet of flowers 🌷 (I’ve got two bouquets to giveaway eh!)
1) follow me @incredibusy and @sogoodineveryway 2) comment and tag a friend with a little 'thank you' or 'thinking of you' below who needs a little extra love this week (me) and @bloomandwild will sort out a winner tomorrow (two UK winners in fact!). .

Morning team ☕️ What are we having for BREAKFAST?
Are you a toast and marmite fan?
Or are you all cornflakes and a cuppa?
Eek it's chilly - let's have porridge and get snug!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I'm keeping up with the eco posts this morning - did you know it's #RecycleWeek? ♻️ Which is timely as the council have literally just parked TWO BRAND NEW GIANT wheelie bins outside my front door, to add to my purple, and green recycling boxes, quite excited about this (tragic I know, I need to get out more).
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
However, they take up a LOT of room and frankly if we (and I mean supermarkets and brands too) all just cut down on the excessive packaging we would still have room to park three bicycles 🚲 🚲 🏍 in the front garden, instead of in my kitchen!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Anyway - read more about how to aim towards a #ZeroWasteKitchen on my blog (link in profile) with the help of @howdensjoinery #ad ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Morning campers... Breakfast Eco questions - What can I do with my milk bottle tops?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where can you recycle batteries? What do they become? Other batteries? ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And
IS IT POSSIBLE TO BE ZERO-WASTE?
With so much talk and public outcry this year of ‘banning the plastic straw’ and ‘make take-away coffee cups recyclable’ (see my bio link for @percol_coffee's petition to Michael Gove to #CleanUpCoffee) – we can’t help but feel a little guilty – As a family, we’ve been refusing plastic straws (although that was a challenge this summer in Vietnam), and carrying our own re-usable cups in our backpacks for ages, so what more can we do? And can we do it a bit closer to home?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
I honestly think we will struggle to be truly ‘Zero-waste’ as a family of four (with two teenage brains who aren’t quite as mindful YET on this subject, at least, as I found out on @howdensjoinery website, recycling a single 330ml aluminium fizzy pop (which in it's own horrifying state of NINE teaspoons of sugar) can save enough energy to power a television for over 3 hours = Fizzy Pop & TV – a teenagers’ match made in heaven).

Morning - so I’m back - inspired by all the “back to school” photos here’s mine - with a friend, which is what I had to do this week when eldest teen refused to have his “back to school” photo taken this year - but it gives me the chance to tell him how proud I am of his homework work over the summer holidays - there was a LOT of it!!
.
Olemme niin ylpeitä sinusta ❤️ I’m also proud of this girl - Nora, she’s showing at @maisonetobjet today with her @projektityyny homewares and oh she’s available at @libertylondon - goodness me this gal @nora_k_nilsson is flourishing!! .
Anyway. It’s good to be back - we will be over on @sogoodineveryway next week for a September “we’re back” relaunch so if you’ve any #sgiew you’d like to squeeze in - #sgiew_flourish will be closing soon!
.
.lots of love, Ali x

5:25am alarm - Sunrise at Ha Long Bay from my open window, will anyone judge me if I admit to going back to bed after photographing this?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Stunning views from our boat - so much beauty in Vietnam - and a lot of it water-based it seems!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
FYI - Ha Long Bay has about 1,600 islands, and is a @unesco World Heritage Site.
Just watch out for the Jellyfish (don’t ask, just know that it’s incredibly painful) and make sure you have vinegar and limes handy and don’t scrub it or rub it as that just seems to make it worse. Thanks to the Imperial Cruises team for your help with our boy)

Morning (well it’s 3pm here) how are we all?
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Excuse the extended radio silence - this is the first time in three weeks I’ve had time to post - full on trains, planes and automobiles travelling through Vietnam.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Been trying to “look with my eyes” as Vietnam is a serious visual overload, have cheated a bit admittedly via instagram stories (see my highlights) but WOW, this country and the people are AMAZING!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Travelling North to South with five kids Paul, and @camparikate and @richardjpower, the Chiềng Châu, Mai Châu rice fields deserve a PowerPoint slideshow all to themselves 🇻🇳 our guide here is called Hung, and he has taken us on a beautiful and educational bike ride through the rice fields and villages - and Sol Bungalows are highly recommended (See stories: the kids loved the food, the pool, the butterflies, dragonflies, Molly’s Birthday celebrations and their own bungalow!)
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
And I love how this photograph contrasts to my previous English countryside photo from last month 😂 🌱
