Hello #coolmumclub and thanks again for supporting another beautiful month of instagram snaps. Spring continues to flourish, as does your imaginations, your creativity and your family lives right before our eyes.
So, this month I shortlisted my faves and as always, an obvious theme emerged. Once my vision was clear, the problem was narrowing it down to four…so, I didn’t! I included them all – your magical Bluebell images just wowed me and I had to share each and every one.
Bluebell season is one of my absolute favourites – a marvel of nature and a time when we all can’t wait to head down to the woods today, cameras charged trying to capture forever the magnificence of the bright blue carpet amongst the dappled sunlight and shadows of the trees overhead. In truth, the photos are never as incredible as the real thing – but you guys have gotten pretty damn close. Each photo doesn’t need any further explanation, you’ll know exactly where I was coming from.
If you haven’t made it to the Bluebell woods yet, you might just still have time…if not, enjoy this little collection instead.
Thanks for sharing, and keep snapping and tagging #coolmumclub
The joy of running down a hill 🏃🏼♀️👌🏻 Another one from yesterday because I just love this! There’s something so nice about having photos of me and the girls, it’s a well known fact that us Mama’s are behind the camera more than we’re in front of it so capturing the real moments like this are super special! Amelie had the MOST fun running up and down this hill surrounded by her favourite coloured flowers, I had quite a lot of fun too! When you’re doing something like this for a second you forget everything else that’s going on and really focus on the moment. 💕👭 📸@amandaneill thanks for grabbing my camera and taking these photos, got to love having an Instagrammer on hand 😂#mummyfriendpictures
A beautiful bluebell display in our holiday garden 💙 . . . We managed a stroll and some cake in the village this morning but that is all Betty has been capable of, she is absolutely exhausted. I’m wondering if she’s poorly or if the holiday has wiped her out more than I realise. Poor sausage, she’ll be glad to be back to her home life routine, think she’s a home girl like me 💛
Lost in thought among the flowers (again). I took so many photographs in this beautiful garden. . You can’t see it from the photos, but the garden borders a lake where ducks and geese sometimes swim. Unlike the ducks in Battersea Park, they are aloof and uninterested in visitors, spurning our duck food. This was of course a great disappointment to Edward. #littlefamiliesofig
Plus as always here is my fave, on theme from @Motherhoodreal (well, it was as close as I could get)
LAST DAY OF FREEDOM – argh! Can’t believe school starts tomorrow. Not sure if I’m ready mentally or physically for this. How about you? Whatever you do today enjoy your last day of freedom everybody!

And, of course, my own Bluebell magic moment @mummuddlingthrough
BLUEBELL WOODS | One of my favourite times of year, seeing the bluebells take over the woods. Today my Mum took us to the best bluebell woods I have ever laid eyes on. Just stunning seeing a whole woodland carpeted in blue, what a feast for the eyes, pure magic. 💙 . . . . . . . #perfectandproud #rockingmummylife #clickinmoms #littlefierceones #outdoorsandfree #thismamaloves #whatevertheweather #thismamaloves #dearphotographer #thatsdarling #takemyheartdear #chasingnature #littlefierceones #ig_motherhood #pixelkids #cherisheverymoment #thehappynow #rememberingthesedays #littleandbrave #childofig #pinklinker #happylittlebuttons #tribalchat #capturingtheday #lionessmama #livingfearlesslyauthentic
