Something a little #different than my usual bright blue skies. This was a perfect storm brewing, travelling very quickly towards us. The #sunshine was beaming down on us from behind. It was very surreal.

Have you ever been in that position where you have sun on one side and dark grey storms on the other? It’s amazing how they contrast.

As much as I love this photo. Seeing the kiddies having fun, it does bring the memories of what happened 10 minutes later: we got caught in a hail storm. It was horrible. We all got soaked through... even the dogs were shaking! Needless to say I got the family waterproof trousers the following day!

Typical English weather... I should have been more prepared! Are you an embrace any weather kind of family or only on the good days?

🎸 Isla was super lucky to receive the new 𝐋.𝐎.𝐋 𝐒𝐮𝐫𝐩𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐞! 𝐑𝐞𝐦𝐢𝐱 𝐎.𝐌.𝐆 𝟐 𝐩𝐚𝐜𝐤. What’s that? Well it’s this fun pack that contains 2 L.O.L Surprise! Remix dolls and the box turns into a cool twin deck mixer!⁣ Awesome @lolsurprise.uk 
⁣
Isla loved it. The pack contains 𝐑𝐨𝐜𝐤𝐞𝐫 𝐁𝐨𝐢 𝘢𝘯𝘥 𝐏𝐮𝐧𝐤 𝐆𝐫𝐫𝐫𝐥 who make an awesome team. The accessories include guitars (obviously) and jewellery. They look so cool that we had to dress Isla up to be her best punk self too!⁣
⁣
Rocker Boi is the big brother to fan favourite character, Rocker. Punk Grrrl is the sister to fan favourite character, Punk Boi.⁣
⁣
The thing that Isla loved the most was the 𝐥𝐲𝐫𝐢𝐜 𝐦𝐚𝐠𝐚𝐳𝐢𝐧𝐞, she very quickly started singing along with the dolls which made it all feel really magical for her. She loves playing with them and pretending they’re all in a band together.⁣
⁣
Play each record on its own, then flip them over to Side BB (and flip the switch) to play their rockin\' duet  There is a switch on the inside of the box... use the boxes that the dolls come in, insert into the deck box and voila you have your twin deck set up!⁣
⁣
I told Isla that Daddy used to be a DJ and play in clubs, she loved it that she could pretend to be like Daddy too!⁣
⁣
You can grab this set from @smythstoys for only £54.99 which is a brilliant price for what you get. Perfect for L.O.L Surprise! Fans for Christmas.⁣
⁣
Which character do you like best?

I adore the Autumn sunshine, it paints everything such a beautiful shade. A hint of gold sparkles across the land. Then in the mornings it sparkles with the crisp drops of frost.

The weather has been amazing over the past week. I truly love this time of year where we can put on our big bobble hats and walk amongst nature’s beauty.

It’s #mindfulness at its best. Not only are you taking in the moment but you’re at one with it. However; at this precise moment the rest of my gang were having Berry fights right behind me. Launching berries at eachother seemed the most logical thing to do on our afternoon walk! 🤣

I’m practicing the mantra “Amongst the chaos there is calm”.

I’ve been a bit quiet on here over the past couple of days, not feeling quite right and super tired. So I’ve been snoozing a lot & resting my eyes. Sometimes you just have to stop and watch the sunset...

I adore the Autumn sunshine,...

🍂 Happy Thanksgiving everyone... I hope you’re day has been filled with gratitude and loved ones. Ok, ironic that the tiers were announced today and upset the nation... however, I’m trying to stay optimistic. How do you feel?⁣
⁣
I had a nice 2 hour walk with my furbabies this morning, which was just lovely. It’s nice to soak up the beautiful frosty mornings.⁣
⁣
My friend surprised me with this homemade pumpkin pie this afternoon. It’s quite possibly the most thoughtful thing. I’ve never tried it and I was asking about thanksgiving. The traditions in the US sound a lot of fun.⁣
⁣
One thing that did make us laugh: in the US they have a tradition called “𝐓𝐮𝐫𝐤𝐞𝐲 𝐓𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐬”. Which is basically a 5k race in the morning of thanksgiving. Burn off the calories before the big feast. I had to explain to my friend what “the trots” meant in the UK. Oh how we laughed. I’ve dared her to wear her turkey trots tee next year and see how people stare!⁣
⁣
To anyone that doesn’t know, 𝐭𝐫𝐨𝐭𝐬 mean diarrhoea in the UK. I’m now wondering if this derived from the turkey trots... I’ll have to investigate.⁣
⁣
𝐏𝐮𝐦𝐩𝐤𝐢𝐧 𝐩𝐢𝐞 was a hit with everyone. Isla absolutely adored it and I cannot believe we’ve never tried it before. It will definitely be on the Constant menu again...⁣
⁣
I hope everyone has had something to be thankful for today. Despite the pandemic & the horrors that’s bringing. I think we should all be proud of how we’ve dealt with this year... every single one of us.⁣
⁣
Happy #Thanksgiving 🍂⁣

🍂 Happy Thanksgiving everyone... I...

🎄 You’ve heard of a Spring clean... well this is my 𝐏𝐫𝐞𝐂𝐡𝐫𝐢𝐬𝐭𝐦𝐚𝐬 𝐜𝐥𝐞𝐚𝐧. I give everything a thorough clean before I put the tree up!⁣
⁣
I thought I’d have some fun with my new @vaxcleanhome too. VAX have brought out the new range: 𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐞𝟒, 𝐆𝐥𝐢𝐝𝐞 and 𝐒𝐩𝐨𝐭𝐥𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐆𝐨. They all share the same battery too which is rather clever.⁣
⁣
This is my 𝐁𝐥𝐚𝐝𝐞𝟒. I love her. She cleans the floors better than any corded vacuum I’ve ever used and I can clean all the carpets in the house and still have battery life at the end. I usually have to empty her twice in that time too.⁣
⁣
It picks up all the pet hair without a hitch and the lights at the front enable me to see in darker areas. If you’re looking for the perfect companion to keep your home clean this Christmas: get a Blade4!⁣
⁣
Check out my stories to find a link to 𝐕𝐀𝐗 and I’d love to see your 𝘳𝘰𝘤𝘬𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘢𝘳𝘰𝘶𝘯𝘥 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘊𝘩𝘳𝘪𝘴𝘵𝘮𝘢𝘴 𝘵𝘳𝘦𝘦 reels 🤣

On the eve of thanksgiving it’s definitely got my thinking about what I’m #grateful for. These 5 are at the top of my list, of course so is my cat, I absolutely love my familam.

My babies have done me proud this year. They’ve shown resilience, compassion, kindness and above all patience. Someone said to me today that because I am all of those things: I will embed this into my kids foundations. I’d never thought about this before.

It made me feel proud. Of myself and Hubby. We’re raising these somewhat feral tiny humans into well grounded and thoughtful people.

They embrace everything that is thrown at them and for that I will always be grateful.

What are you feeling grateful for at the moment?

On the eve of thanksgiving...

Although you probably wouldn’t think it, to look at me because I always dress quite conservatively, I love a #pattern. Bold. Striking. Daring.

When we bought this house last year I knew I wanted bold flooring where possible and so far it’s going well. This is our beautiful flooring from @harveymaria - it’s a luxury vinyl tile that just looks amazing and feels nice to walk on too. This particular pattern is “Lattice Tarn” from the Dee Hardwicke range.

This room is the utility and sees a lot of traffic throughout the day. Muddy football boots... muddy paw prints... dog food... dirty laundry... the list goes on. But, it is so easy to wipe clean that it always looks brand new again.

I can’t wait to show it off properly and do a before and after reels of our utility room. I’ve also got some shots of how it was installed (professionally made I add).

It’s turned a room I didn’t care about into a room I love. I might just get an armchair for the utility room next, so I can sit and stare at it a little more!

#gifted. I was gifted this flooring from Harvey Maria. I’ve tagged @harveymaria so please do check out their other fantastic patterns.

Although you probably wouldn’t think...

Anyone else feel like their bones are blocks of ice? Or is it just me. Yesterday was so mild, yet I still had my coat and bobble hat on. Today felt like I woke up in Antarctica.

I really feel the #cold and I’ve noticed that more so whilst I’ve been working from home. I think the difference in the office is that I walked around more. Walked for meetings, coffee and to speak to people. Nowadays I click to meetings and speaking to people... I wish I could click for coffee too 🙈. Lazy!!!

So, my plan is to do more walking throughout the day. Even if I walk around the house, picking up the 98,000 odd socks that get thrown around, in between meetings; should warm me up a bit.

Does anyone else have this problem or is it just me?

Despite my frozeness today I did enjoy seeing the frost this morning. It was just beautiful. The crispy autumn floor and mist across the field, it looked magical. And made me feel quite Christmassy!

Speaking of which... just over a month until Christmas 😱🎄🎅🏼🧑🏻‍🎄🤶🏻🎁 Whose ready?

I’ve not even started yet...🤭
