Ah it’s #loveyourpetday - what a great way to see each others furbabies. Well these are mine:

Photo 1 = Rambo the Jack Russell & Snoopy the Cockerspaniel. As many of you know, Snoopy is blind and partially deaf which is challenging. However, he is such a happy pooch and loves a snuggle. I think Rambo has lost a little hearing too as he’s getting old. He will be 13 on April 3rd! It’s gone by so quickly.

Photo 2 = Rocky. He’s my Tom cat fluffbag and I like to call him Rockstar! He was my engagement present from Hubby. He’s the best cat. He snuggles with me every night, under the covers, he’s very set in a routine.

It’s funny how furbabies get their own little #pattern to make it through the day. All the pets sit by the bed at night for a treat. And I think Rambo is very cat like and Rocky is very dog like too. They definitely have those characteristics.

Rambo is 12, Rocky is 11 and Snoopy is 10. Noah is 9... then we broke the pattern as Isla is 7 🤣 (it wasn’t intentional). #mummyphotoaday #dogsofinstagram #catsofinstagram

Ah it’s #loveyourpetday - what...

Sometimes I like to have fun with images. I don’t do it very often but it is amazing what you can do with a photo using filters.

The first image is the edited version, I’ve added a #bokeh filter on it. I’ve used @pixlr for this. It adds an orangey colouring to the photo and enhances the sun rays.

The original, swipe left, is still good and has its own bokeh and sun rays shining on it. But is less orangey and doesn’t seem as bright. It’s still a good photo though.

I took this with my iPhone. Sometimes when I need a quiet moment, one where I can play with the filters and change the feel of a photo it helps me to unwind. Gives my brain 5 minutes to regain itself and then I’m ready to crack on with whatever it was!

Which one do you prefer? Just out of curiosity - there’s no right or wrong answer! 🤣

#mummyphotoaday

Sometimes I like to have...

I had a busy Sunday painting the dining room with @frenchicpaint. I think it’s fair to say I’m obsessed. I painted the radiator and skirting boards with Dazzle Me. It’s super bright white. I painted the door with City Slicker. It looks so much better than the dark wood it was before.

If you swipe left you can see the before photos. The radiator was a beige colour before. It’s amazing how much brighter the room looks, it’s easy to #transform a room with an hour or 2 of painting.

I styled up the dining room with this beautiful bouquet of Spring flowers (a very kind gift from a friend) and these items from @pricescandlesuk. They eliminate pet odours which is great as sometimes I worry my house smells “dog”. After an impromptu afternoon off work, looking after Isla who hurt her neck at dance club, I cleaned and cleaned. The house smells nice and clean now. The household candle and reed diffuser have added a nice citrus and thyme scent to the room.

It’s amazing what you can do to change the feel of a room with simple steps!

#mummyphotoaday

I had a busy Sunday...

#Beauty is in the eye of the beholder. We aren’t all the same. Wouldn’t the world be a boring place if that was the case. Everyone has a viewpoint. Everyone has their own opinion.

However, I am a firm believer in “if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all”. I think it’s really important to spread happiness, build confidence and support each other. Now my big cheesey smile isn’t like this everyday, sometimes I’m worn out and sometimes I’m feeling sad. But I’ve learnt how to offload, unwind and bring that smile back. It’s so important to be able to hit that reset button once in a while.

So, this week, try and do one of these things:
🤍 Make someone laugh, a big belly laugh
🤍 Tell someone they look amazing
🤍 Tell someone you love you are grateful for them

See how it makes you feel. To make someone else’s day. It’s euphoric. I will never forget the moment one of the Mums from the school run told me I completely picked them up out of a dark spot - just by telling them they looked amazing today as I walked past.

Take the time to appreciate. Honestly it’s THE best hobby!

On a little diverted note; I’m appreciating this coat and boots right now. So warm and comfy. Check out the details on my blog >>> #linkinbio

#Beauty is in the eye...

This might seem a little random after the sentiments in my last post. But bear with me... cleaning & #diy can help me with my mental health.

I’m not sure why but when I’m anxious, need to think or cross I clean. Like the deep clean stuff, it’s almost as if I get adrenaline from somewhere to give me the strength to scrub things that I wouldn’t normally. Or tackle something I wouldn’t normally.

On Thursday, whilst anxiously waiting to find out what was wrong with my grandma, I was shaving millimetres off Isla’s bedroom door. It was hard work but I didn’t want to just sit about.

Today I’ve painted the radiator and woodwork in our dining room with Frenchic. I now have a white and bright radiator and grey door. It looks so much better. Again, it’s something I can do whilst being lost in my thoughts.

Does anyone else do this?

Whilst promoting cleaning and mindfulness, check out my blog for a competition to win some goodies from @astonishcleaners #astonishingresults

This might seem a little...

I’m sure I don’t need to tell you what beauty shared this on her instagram before Christmas:  @carolineflack you’ve broken my heart.

She was funny. Caring. Kind. Absolutely beautiful and that smile lit up the world. Not perfect. But who is? No one.

I can’t comprehend how someone of such radiance and sparkle can end their life. But I only assume her mental health was suffering. She felt so trapped that was her only way out. A way of ending the pain that nobody could see.

Mental health is invisible; yet mental health is all consuming. Mental health is complicated; yet mental health can be helped with a simple cup of tea and chat.

Smile on the inside and on the out.

Make time for yourself.

Love yourself.

Make time for others.

Be kind.

Always. 
In a world where you can be anything, be kind  #bekind #ripcarolineflack

I’m sure I don’t need...

This is sheer appreciation. This man. My lobster 🦞. Who made me the scrummiest meal last night & dreamy Vegan brownies. Showered me with thoughtful gifts & my cute note (in my stories) I recieved in my lunch bag.

However, I was a complete emotional wreck yesterday as my Grandma was taken into hospital. She was distressed, confused and sounding a little slow. It was scary.

So the Valentine’s Day love went all to Grandma from my family; wishing & hoping they find out what’s wrong.

We’re currently waiting to find out if her BP has reduced. It was sky high. Hoping she’s better & I can bring her home today.

This photo was from last Summer when we went to @carluccios in Cambridge. I love it. Happy memories. I’m lucky to have these. Noahs a people watcher, he was distracted with the crowd. Incidentally Carluccio’s have the offer on again: kids eat for a £1... #appreciation #family #love #mummyphotoaday

This is sheer appreciation. This...

Happy Valentine’s Day 🤍

A lot to be thankful for today. Love is a big word. I love these two quotes and perfect for today.

Yes it’s about celebrating your life with your lobster 🦞(mine is rather amazing) but it’s also about family.

Family is not just an important thing. It’s everything. So true.

I don’t know where I’d be without my lobster and my family... I hung these beauts in our bathroom and I love them. They make me smile everytime I clean my teeth! Which helps 😂

#Competition – Win a hamper of Jamie Oliver/Moshi Monster goodies

Mon-stars everywhere are in for a feast of scrumptious treats, as television chef Jamie Oliver is the latest celebrity to receive a monster makeover. You may have seen Isla’s baking debut video on our recipe post for butternut squash muffins, here is your chance to win an incredible hamper full of goodies from Jamie Oliver plus the ingredients to make your very own versions.

hampercompetition

Teaming up with Moshi Monsters, Jamie together with everyone’s favourite character Furi, wants to inspire young budding chefs around the world to get into the kitchen and learn how to cook. They believe food education is a human right for every child and the more children know about what they are eating, the healthier they will be.

The duo have been cooking up a storm in Jamie’s kitchen to create a delicious Butternut Squash Muffin. The one off video revealed on Jamie’s Food Tube channel results in the chef receiving a bowl of Gloop Soup over his head! Jamie has even been transformed into Jammie Olive Oil, a ‘fang-tastic’ Moshling character, with the chef’s signature quiff and plaid shirt. 

We will be joining in the fun by baking our very own Butternut Squash cupcakes (watch this space!) as part of the campaign but am offering one lucky person the chance to win an exclusive hamper packed full of Jamie Oliver and Moshi Monster goodies along with everything you will need to take part and join in the baking fun!

For your chance to win answer this very simple question and email it to sonia@mummyconstant.com, after you have done this please comment on the blog post below:

What is the name of Jamie Oliver’s Moshling Character?

Jammie Oliver

Jammie Olive Oil

Jam Olive Boil 

Jammie Olive Roll 

Extra chances to win are to following MummyConstant on Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Instagram and Pinterest

The competition closes in one week, midnight 16 April 2015. Good luck.
