Saying goodbye this morning. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again - not sure how we’d do what we do without Barney being such a trooper when we go away. And for Nonna being there to be his rock. We’re both off on separate planes today, Daddy left for two weeks & all over the place over the coming weeks. But he makes goodbyes easy! Thanks Barney Boo 👊🏻 Have to remind myself that it’s all for him anyway. Everything is for him. #workingmum #work #travel #mother #son #parent #parenting #reallife #upallhours

One of the many things I love about my friend Aly is her brutal honestly. I also love her way with words, her ‘can do’ attitude to persevering with feeding the kids amazing food, her ability to think on her feet & adjust to a situation as it’s playing out live, her ‘can do’ attitude to find solutions, her well stocked cereal cupboard and her love of wine. Love this insta story so I’m popping on the grid. Love you Aly! Bravo! #reallife #reallifeparenting #parenthood #mother #dinnertime #parents #upallhours

HAPPY EASTER: This is his Easter outfit from 2 years ago. It doesn’t fit at all we have had to cut the feet out. When it did fit, he hated it. Now, he never wants to take it off but hey, that’s toddlers for you! Happy Easter All xx #easter #toddler #dressup #fancydress #easternbunny #upallhours #parenting #parents

A grainy shout out to my boy! One medal and one trophy at football yesterday. Well done little man 👍 It’s been FaceTime for us all week this week as I am away with work. The last three times I’ve spoken to him he’s had the medal on & the trophy by his side. This was this morning at breakfast!! Good for him. Love how as children we are shamelessly proud of our achievements. We should be more like that as adults. Home tomorrow can’t wait for a cuddle dude...💙 #parenting #proud #workingmum #working #easterholiday #mother #son #parenthood #reallife #misshim #upallhours

4 DAY WEEKEND: Gus perfectly illustrating my feelings about the prospect of a 4 day weekend ahead! The similarities between him and Elton are alarming! Diva behaviour ✅ Penchant for elaborate glasses ✅ Outlandish rider demands ✅ God help us!!! Happy nearly Easter Long Weekend all! #easter #eltonorgus #eltonjohn #4dayweekend #parenting #upallhours

Gus and I nailing Insta wall chic. Or not as the case maybe!!! ➡️ And let’s ignore the questionable outfit choices but I was unprepared for the country walk. The kids are back from holiday so Aly’s peace has been shattered!! Let the holiday juggle continue! #easterholiday #children #friends #instawall #wellnevergetitright #parents #parenting #upallhours

Never had a title of children’s book seemed more fitting for the Easter Holidays for parents everywhere. Just five minutes!!! It’s funny, it’s such a bloody juggle on all sides. Whether you’re the Mum who has to entertain your children every minute of everyday or the working Mum who dashes home for the five minutes before bed. Either way, just five minutes! Hang in there team 👊🏻 #yournotalone #parenting #upallhours #reallife #itsajuggle #andastruggle #parents #mother #workingmum

NEVER MISS A MONDAY. Is the only reason I’d be lying on a yoga mat on the cold kitchen floor at 22.30. Spent all day in front of the laptop working & felt I really needed to sweat 💦 Didn’t go crazy...25 mins in total. Legs, glutes & core. This is very regularly how Aly & I exercise. Somewhere in the house with an app! Went with @onepeloton digital to change up it up. Really enjoyed it, especially at this time of night when you’re alone! The joys of long working days eh! Let the Easter holiday juggle continue! #nevermissamonday #workingparent #exercise #health #mentalhealth #fitness #parent #upallhours

Holiday happiness right there...PlayStation at 7am whilst Mummy gets ready for work. 👍Bless him, he deserved the downtime. They all do. School is hard work! Note: We are still without a sofa so have resorted to one large cushion! #easterholiday #playstation #downtime #workingmum #parenting #schoolholidays #upallhours

Now I know at first glance you probably thought this was Aly or myself but it isn’t. 😋 And fear not, we aren’t about to ask for your advice on whether this is something one should be rocking in Marbs this summer! The comments to this picture on Facebook absolutely cracked me. As I was scrolling through my phone trying to unwind before bed, I found it and the comments I had taken a screenshot of! Thought it might make some of you laugh throughout the night. A bit of night feed humour if you will. Love the real women out there #hedgehogstuckunderfloorboards #funny #theydontlooklikethat #vulvahammock #upallhours #nightfeedhumour

GUS ON BREXIT: “Deal? No deal? Enough already Teresa, Where was the indicative vote for ‘guarantee frictionless delivery of Gus’s ice lollies’? Until I get clarity on this very important issue, I’m afraid I won’t be throwing my considerable social influencer weight, behind either side of the argument! Sort. It.

Good old FaceTime!! Last day of term for Barns before the Easter holidays kick in. Fair to say he’s ready for some down time and I am very ready to kiss his face on Sunday when I return. 💙 #myboy #family #mother #son #school #easterholidays #upallhours

Best birthday card ever from my boy hidden in my bag so I had it yesterday. ❤️ I’ve missed birthdays at home because of work travel but this time it’s different as I’m away with the girls. 3 of us have celebrated birthdays this week. All have left the kiddies with the husbands!! And I must say, it’s good for the soul to get some sleep, some fresh air, lots of 🥂🍾🍷and lots of laughing. #mother #birthday #love #friends #family #upallhours

upallhoursphotos. HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM-LA: I have spent an unhealthy amount of time lookin

HAPPY BIRTHDAY SAM-LA: I have spent an unhealthy amount of time looking for an embarrassing photo of Sam but really I feel nothing can top last years so why try! Instead I thought i would instead thank her. It is not often someone like Sam drops into your life she is bright (although she pretends she isn’t ) funny (I regularly wet myself when with her, although I have had 3 kids so read into that what you will), she is kind to a fault ( during my pnd she quite literally moved in to keep an eye on me) generous and I have never met anyone more dedicated to Take That and more specifically @officialgarybarlow in my life. She is a wonderful mummy to the most awesome little man and i love her lots. So today, no jokes, no embarrassment just a hell of a lot of love and gratitude to an incredible woman I am lucky enough to have in my life. Happy Birthday Sam-La thanks for just being you x

NEVER MISS A MONDAY....especially when the sun is shining!! Nearly missed posting this however as the window of opportunity to exercise is always seriously slim. As Sam and I always harp on about, it’s about making it work for you. When you can, doing what you can, doing the right things for you & being kind to yourself in the process. I took my kit outside this afternoon to grab a quick 27 minutes in. That’s all it takes to get the endorphins flowing. #nevermissamonday #exercise #health #parent #youtime #fitness #mother #parenthood #training #upallhours
