I’m so happy with how our #garden is transforming. We’ve created a huge space for playing, chilling, eating and basking.

If you swipe through the photos this is what our garden looked like when we moved in last January. We’ve been working hard to make it our own.

To be fair Hubby has done most of the hard work: getting rid of the pond and 5ft high rockery. Using the rocks to make the fire pit area. The decking. And then the patio.

It looks so different. And this photo isn’t the end, we still have some work to do over the next month but I thought it was a good milestone.

We now have somewhere to be as a family. And our sofa is perfect for socially distancing 😂 we can sit 3.5 metres away from eachother.

I am still gobsmacked when I look at it is today and what it was when we moved in. It looks just as I drew it a year ago.

I’m so happy with how...

I took this photo the other evening; the kiddies wanted to wait for a train to go past and so we sat and waited.

Whilst I checked the train times, they sat there talking and giggling. I captured this moment. It was so lovely. Look how #sweet her body language is. His too.

I love watching them when they have their talks. Every morning when we walk the dogs they walk ahead, or behind, doing the same thing. They chatter about lots of random topics or plan out the Minecraft house they are going to build next.

It’s been a long day and when I see photos like this, of the better days, it reminds me why I need to keep going and getting through the tough times.

My babies. 💛💙 #mummyphotoaday

This is for yesterday’s prompt, I left my square black yesterday and so this is my Day 2 of the June Photo Challenge.

These guys always make me #smile. They have the ability to make me feel so very angry and then laugh only 5 minutes later. I’m glad they don’t hold a grudge or stay angry for too long.

I remember this moment well, they were giggling about the dogs. The dogs wandered around them chewing on the grass and Snoopy (our blind dog) nearly head butted Isla.

I love the bond they have developed over the past few months, with each other and the pets too. I’m not saying they love all day long (they bicker) but it’s not as much as they used to and it’s definitely determined by the amount of sleep they get.

Anyone else struggling to get their kids asleep but 10pm? I think Noah came down, in protest, 8 times last night to say he couldn’t sleep.

🌾 I adore this photo! Not sure what it is exactly: the colours, the wonky lines, the sun setting to the right or the children’s freedom. Or, all of it put together.

This was an ordinary moment captured on our dog walk, Sunday evening. It’s little moments like this, the accidental captures, that I love the most.

I had no idea at the time of taking it that I’d love it as much as I do. I can hear the #kiddies giggling and it makes me want to smile.

Well, it’s a late post. But I didn’t finish work until 10:30pm ish & I’ve been winding down.

I hope everyone had a lovely day.

My favourite pics from May...

We went out with a bang for May! We had a day of socially distancing with #family.

Today is Nanny’s birthday, so we watched her open her presents on the driveway, with a good few metres distance. It was horrible not to be able to celebrate the day with her as we always do. We know we will soon and hopefully they can come and spend time in the garden with us soon, due to the new rules.

The kiddies get super sad when we leave families. It’s not nice but I think they understand why we can’t see them properly. Albeit they do not like it!

To cheer us up we played diggers in the fields surrounding my Mums new barn renovation project. No worries about socially distancing over there it is literally fields and fields. The kids loved zooming up and down on the dumper. I think it’s called.

Then we knocked on Great Grandma’s door to blow her a kiss and let her see the kiddies for a few minutes. It’s just so hard.

But, it was so lovely to see family today. Even if from afar and for a short time. We haven’t seen them in the flesh for around a month and it felt so nice.

Here’s to June and another month of lockdown. We’ve still got this!

15 gripping Sky TV Box Sets to get you through lockdown

Since we made the move to Sky Q we have never looked back, I absolutely love it. It’s easier to manage family viewing time, we can swap from TV to TV easily (which during lockdown is essential) and there are just so many Sky TV Box Sets to binge watch. All very helpful at the moment as we are required to stay at home.

These are the box sets that I am enjoying and have planned to watch over the next month. If you are watching any of these I would love to know your thoughts in the comments below or on social media: @mummyconstant.

Sky Box Sets

Things I am currently watching

Bulletproof – Season 2

We are loving this. Bulletproof is all about a London Police department that go undercover to bring criminal gangs to justice. The main characters Pike and Bishop are so funny. They have a great report with each other and they make us laugh. However, amongst the giggles there is a serious side to the show. Season 2 is not disappointing, Watch the Bulletproof Season 2 trailer.

The Outsider

I have 1 more episode of this to watch and I think it’s brilliant. You have to have a little imagination with this one I think as it does break out of the boundaries of the “norm”. It’s a crime drama, with a twist. That’s the best way I can describe it without giving too much away. Another Sky Original on Sky Atlantic and it’s just amazing. I am sucked right in and cannot wait to watch the finale today. It’s based on a Stephen King novel, so I think I might get a copy of the book and read that now. Find out more about The Outsider.

Chernobyl

Another Sky Atlantic masterpiece, you have probably guessed that Sky Atlantic is one of my favourite channels. Chernobyl is incredible. We have finished it but I couldn’t NOT list it. It follows the story of Chernobyl and what happened all of those years ago: a nuclear power plant caught on fire and there was a lot of conspiracy and cover up. It’s fascinating. Definitely a must watch. Find out more about Chernobyl.

Big Little Lies – Season 2

I loved season 1, which I feel I cannot talk about as I do not want to ruin it for anyone. It’s all about 3 Mums who seemingly live the perfect life: perfect families, perfect homes etc. I haven’t started Season 2 yet and I am very excited after the cliffhanger of Season 1. Another fabulous Sky Atlantic show, see more about Big Little Lies.

There are some classics in the Box Sets section on Sky TV too: Dexter, The Sopranos, Fortitude and Oz (I found this fascinating about life in prison). There are some great boxsets on Sky Witness too: I love 9-1-1, For the People and Instinct.

The Outsider

Sky TV Box Sets on my to watch list

Gangs of London

Set in the heart of London, this show tells the story of a city being torn apart by the power struggles of international gangs that run it. When the head of London’s most powerful family is assassinated there is a sudden power race to become the new leader. Check out the Gangs of London trailer. This show starts on Sky Atlantic on April 23 2020.

Save Me Too – Season 2

This started yesterday, we really enjoyed season 1 which aired last year. It is a Sky Original and absolutely brilliant, we were gripped throughout Season 1. Season 1 is about a Father, Nelly, who tries to find his estranged daughter with his wife. They do not get on and have a lot of history which makes it all complicated. I won’t ruin any more of it for you. Season 2 looks good I know that much… check out the Save Me Too trailer.

Hitmen

I love Mel & Sue, they have always made me giggle. Hitmen, is another Sky Original that looks brilliantly funny. They kill people for a living and they are just trying to make it through the day. The trailer has me hooked already, check out the Hitmen trailer. The episodes are out now to watch on Sky Box Sets.

Breeders

I have seen the trailer for this many times (I am also in the middle of watching Without A Trace from the start and Breeders is in most adverts) it looks hilarious. We love Martin Freeman and this show looks like a very funny, yet honest, account of parenthood. Watch the Breeders trailer.

If you have any other shows that you are watching at the moment, I would love to hear about them. I am always up for a good box set. Sky TV Box Sets can be added to your Sky TV by choosing Box Set Bundle in your account.
