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!

We went out with a...

Yeah for the #weekend!! It seems to be the only time where tensions aren’t high and there is a calm amongst us.

We have no grand plans, obviously, but we do tend to get the dogs walked first thing (as it’s too hot later on) and then we do some gardening.

Yesterday I spent an hour pulling all the weeds and long grasses from the front garden. It looks so much neater now but I still have a lot of work to do.

I love this photo of us of all, we do not have many as we never sit still long enough 🤪 This is our family lockdown portrait though and it’s a nice memory: sunny days, rainbows and quality time together at home.

Do you have any special memories throughout this lockdown?

Decorating our house with happy memories from Colorland #stayathome

Coming back to pictures and memories can definitely help everyone survive this lockdown and keep positive. I recently discovered Colorland and they have really helped to brighten up my home and seeing these wonderful memories every day, is certainly bringing a smile to my face. Colorland have also offered my readers a special discount too! So, we have added some finishing touches to our home, to get us through lockdown with a smile on our faces.

A mug of LOVE

mug of love

I love this mug; it is such a cute design. There are quite a few different designs to choose from on the site. I chose the LOVE design mug; you can upload 4 different photos and it spreads them around the mug, amongst the words in love. You can also choose a fab colour for inside the mug; I went for a vibrant red colour. If you want to get a mug of your own, Colorland are giving my readers a discount; you can use the code BLOGGCONSTANT1 to get your mug for £2.99 instead of £10.99 (plus shipping). 

Canvas that print 

canvas

This canvas print (60x40cm) is one of my favourite photos from Winter into Spring. It makes me smile everytime I look at it. It was only taken on my iPhone, which I still can’t believe, but the quality of the print is perfect. You can choose portrait, landscape and square designs which is fab as they are all very popular right now. The print is so vivid and has intense colour, I really love it. It looks exactly like the photo does on my phone. If you want to get a canvas print of your own, Colorland are giving my readers a discount; you can use the code BLOGGCONSTANT2 to get your canvas for £10.99 instead of £34.99 (plus shipping). 

Magnets of fun 

magnets colorland

I love photo magnets, everytime I go to the fridge I smile at the memories in these little squares. These are 6.5 x 6.5 cm sized magnets and you get 6 in a set. I decorate my fridge with updated images throughout the year, happy memories get printed onto magnets. They are definitely talking points when friends come over. If you want to get your own set of magnets, Colorland are giving my readers a discount; you can use the code BLOGGCONSTANT3 to get your canvas for £2.99 instead of £12.00 (plus shipping). 

Insta prints

prints colorland

As you all know, I love Instagram (@mummyconstant), and so I couldn’t help but print some insta photos out for our special “insta” frame. They are such a great idea and you can easily upload the photos, straight from your Instagram account. The insta photo pack come in 2 sizes and you need to order a minimum of 20 photos. I love the fact they print with the white border, looks a little retro!

Coffee table Colorland photobook 

photo book

Have you ever heard of a coffee table photobook? They are beautiful books that print your photos directly onto the page. I love them. These were the kind of albums we would print out when we did wedding photography. They are just beautiful and show off the photos amazingly. The starbook is a gorgeous design from Colorland. It comes with set templates for pages and you can choose to add captions to photos, I chose the Happy Family design. I love it. 

What photo products do you love to print out for your home? Don’t forget to use the codes above if you want a discount on a mug, canvas or magnet set. We are spending so much time at home, these are great gift ideas for loved ones too!
