Once again in May we haven’t spent a lot of time exploring the UK, to be honest in between Malawi, Lisbon and our week in Turkey at the end of the month we haven’t been around a lot!

When I am exploring the UK I tag all my UK days out photographs #UKexplore on Instagram and if you aren’t following me over there I’d love you to do so! You can also keep an eye on what we’ve been getting up to. I’ve managed to find a couple of UK based photos from May from a day out at St Anne’s Beach Huts.

We had fab work / play date at @StAnnesBeachHut yesterday with a lot of laughter. Despite it raining pretty much all day we did get the chance to take some photos in-between catching up and sharing ideas and contacts.  Whilst I actually thought @letstalkmommy ‘s baby might show up during one of our laughing fits, thankfully she has saved that for another day! It was so so lovely to spend the day with the ladies and I’m thankful that we decided over a year ago to do these little get togethers regularly. Thanks @extraordinary_chaos @goingonanadventureblog @lifeasourlittlefamily too! Oh and someone has just asked where I got the trousers from, they are @hm in fact the top and jacket are too. Not sponsored or gifted, I just bought them and someone asked so I’m telling you!! #ukexplore #myEngland #lifeunplugged #countrylife #countryliving #ukexplore #thegreatoutdoors #autumn #ABMlifeincolour #postcardsfromtheworld #thegreatoutdoors #lifecloseup #capturingcolour #dscolor #colourmyjoy #acolorstory #colorventures #abmlifeiscolorful  #petitejoys #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #pursuepretty #nothingisordinary #abmhappylife #thatsdarling #forahappymoment #holdthemoment #momentsofmine #lovestylelife

It might not be perfectly in focus, we might all look mildly strange, but I absolutely love this photo of me and @extraordinary_chaos and @lifeasourlittlefamily as it kind of sums up the day we had @Stannesbeachhut! Total amusement, mild hysteria at the weather at times, but always full on support – photo taken by @letstalkmommy and I imagine @goingonanadventureblog is just off shot as her eyes will be shut as she always does when she laughs! Thanks for letting us use your hut guys! #ukexplore #ad  #myEngland #lifeunplugged #countrylife #countryliving #ukexplore #thegreatoutdoors #autumn #ABMlifeincolour #postcardsfromtheworld #thegreatoutdoors  #lifecloseup #capturingcolour #dscolor #colourmyjoy #acolorstory #colorventures #abmlifeiscolorful  #petitejoys #flashesofdelight #thehappynow #pursuepretty #nothingisordinary #abmhappylife #thatsdarling #forahappymoment #holdthemoment #momentsofmine #lovestylelife

Just in case you aren’t aware what #UKexplore is, it is our Instagram community that we have invited you all to join in with and share your favourite places across the UK and your outdoor adventures. To join in it doesn’t have to be a photograph one of the 534 National Trust properties (although we do think they are amazing); we want to see your ‘off the beaten track’ spots, too. It could be the most marvellous of meadows, the perfect place for a picnic, the loveliest lake for skimming stones, or rambling routes for running along. Wherever and whenever you’re out exploring, simply take a snap and upload it to Instagram so we can all share in your adventures and explore the UK with you. All we ask is that you use the #UKexplore hashtag so we can find you. You don’t have to be a blogger, anyone can join in and be in with a chance to win. So without further ado, who have I chosen this month….

@genuineplacebo84 and @capturescotland and @claireyharpo
