💙💚 This weather is just beautiful. I can’t wait to spend more time with nature. Evening walks through natures routes and paddling under the sunshine.

I haven’t seen much of the sunshine this week; I’ve been quite unwell and going to bed early to give myself energy for the next day. I’m hoping it will pass soon, so I can enjoy some sunshine over the weekend.

How has your week been?

🎂 Yesterday we had a very successful family party for Isla’s birthday. 🥳

Isla and I made her watermelon themed cake, we baked scones and a zillion sandwiches. It was so nice to have everyone around, as we haven’t done that for years. I think there was 16 of us in total!

I love decorating the table for an Afternoon Tea. It always looks so pretty. I used the Garden Party in a box from @lucydarlingshop.

All the sandwiches went down a treat. We had cheese, ham, chicken, egg mayo and tuna mayo! I’ve rekindled my love for a cheese & pickle… 

What’s your favourite sandwich?

🌳 I would love to live in the countryside, by vast woodlands & coastal paths. It’s the dream. However, I forget just how much beauty there is just outside my door.

This little woodland, for example, is full of life & only a 30 second walk from my house. I find it calming & I just love taking slow walks through here. Listening to the birds!

I’ve promised myself to get more steps in, and appreciate natures little pockets that I live near. After all, it can only make me appreciate the countryside whenever we do find our dream home.

Do you forget about the pockets of nature near you?

Making memories 🥳

This was Isla’s first family selfie using her birthday present. She loves taking photos and I can see her following in Daddy’s footsteps when she’s older. She’s very creative.

We’ve managed to spread out Isla’s birthday celebrations over an 8 day period. Perfect if you ask me. She’s loved it!

Anyone love taking photos? Of everything? All the time?

And she’s jumping into her birthday like…

💙💗 We had a super fun time at the trampoline park tonight, hot dogs and slushies. Cupcakes and sweets. Then to the park to burn off the sugar high and cool them down a little.

It was lovely to see them all playing and having fun… Isla loved it. I learn so much from her, how to let go and how to have fun. She’s my little ⭐️.

I cannot believe my baby is 10 tomorrow 😭 I want my baby girl back with her diddy feet.

What’s your favourite memory of the newborn stage?

My favourite skies are deep with blue and white fluffy clouds scattered about too. I visualise patterns and shapes in the clouds just for fun… it’s amazing this planet that lives under the sun!

I’m doing my bit to look after the planet; walking where I can, compost, I don’t eat meat or fish, using less water and getting rid of single use plastic.

I want to keep seeing the beautiful views and making cloud patterns and shapes. Do you do that when the sky is full of white fluffy clouds?

With it being my little babies 10th birthday in one week, it’s making me reflect on all the fun adventures and activities we’ve had over the years.

This is one of my favourite photos from April 2015. Isla was not quite 4 here and Noah is 5. They’re soo tiny. I remember Noah trying to explain to Isla what they’d be doing back at the holiday cottage.

They’ve always been very active. In fact I think they were more active when they were younger! 😂

Do you go through photos of your little ones when approaching their birthdays? 💜

How we are coping with lockdown 3 and helpful tips

How we are coping with lockdown 3 and helpful tips

January 2021 and that dreaded news hits our ears: "schools are closing to all students". I can deal with all other restrictions but closing the schools to the children just breaks my heart. They were so sad, Isla cried herself to sleep and just knowing how much they will miss their friends and routine. I thought I would write down my feelings during lockdown 3 and some helpful tips on what we are doing to overcome some of these feelings. VIEW the POST

Things I need for lockdown with school children

Things I need for lockdown with school children

Lockdown 3 is a lot different to the first lockdown. I know I am not the only one to think that. In the Spring it was bright, sunny, dry and getting out in the garden was easy. We also had lots of space to use for quiet office space, our conservatory for example. This time around we are all trying to use the same spaces and we are not getting out into the garden as much. We also do not have the luxury of being a pretend teacher this time as we have so much work to do! Here's what we need for lockdown with school children: VIEW the POST

Fun bonding activities for the whole family to enjoy

Spending time with family can be very challenging especially in our busy modern world. If you are struggling to do so, you and your family should designate a specific family time at least once during the week to spend time together and enjoy each other’s company. The best way to bond with family is to do activities that everyone will enjoy and outings to cool places where you can learn and have fun. We have had lots of fun over lockdown and are enjoying new bonding activities that we will continue to do together.

Trying something new: skateboarding with the family

Trying something new: skateboarding with the family

So far this year, many families have been taking up new hobbies and new activities to keep busy during lockdown. From baking and painting, to cycling and home cinema nights, there have been plenty of fun things to keep the whole family entertained. If children are into video games, then there are even some useful tips on minecraft for parents to teach adults the basics. However, when the weather is good outside, it’s great to get outside and get some fresh air as a family. While skateboarding might be more exciting for the children, adults can still join in so that the whole family can learn to skate together.  VIEW the POST

Fun Summer Holiday creative play #PoopsieTimeforSlime

Fun Summer Holiday creative play #PoopsieTimeforSlime

We love Poopsie over here at Constant HQ (that sounds very important doesn't it?). The school Summer term finishes on 23 July 2020 and that will mean no more logging into our school app to check for work. At the moment, we are planning for a September return to school life and so we want to make sure they have a fun Summer Holiday that incorporates fun activities. This is great for all those slime lovers out there: #PoopsieTimeforSlime. VIEW the POST

Fun LEGO lockdown activities #letsbuildtogether

We all love LEGO in the Constant house, it’s the one thing that I still do now as a grown up that I did as a child (apart from making pretend restaurants of course). We have been playing a lot of LEGO lockdown activities over the past few weeks, from building new sets, playing games to building challenges. Even the LEGO employees are building from home…
