“February is the border between Winter and Spring” Terri Guillemets.

I saw this quote recently, on someone’s insta square, and for the life of me I cannot remember where I saw it. But I love it.

It’s such a transformative month and I get all excited seeing the new buds sprouting above the surface. New beginnings.

With each new Spring comes new beginnings. New blooms in the garden, new colours and new weather.

I’m looking forward to many more walks in the Wintery Sun & filling my lungs with fresh air.

What do you love about February?

Today marks a month since we lost our little Rambo. We’re still trying to heal but, as all the advice said, it is getting a little lighter to carry the grief each day.

Isla still isn’t sleeping very well and when it gets towards the end of the evening, we’re all a little out of sorts. Simply, we miss him so much.

I’m going to brave it and write a blog dedication to my little best bud, I haven’t felt brave enough yet. He was such a lovely dog, also a bit weird & funny, it will be nice to share his stories.

I love this photo of the 3 of them snuggling. This was just before Christmas. This is quite often what view I would have behind my desk… my little snugglers!

Do you take loads of photos of your pets snuggled in different ways?

The Winter Sun has been so beautiful over the last few days.  I think today we’re going to see a change to cloudy skies.

I love this photo. The low sun and the kids having a little adventure. I spend a lot of my time watching them interact. I guess that’s a big part of parenthood. Learning and growing.

Have you been making the most of the weather?

A little corner of my office… I spend most of my week here so it’s nice to pretty it up sometimes. I even managed to blur out the water marks on the windows (they need a good clean).

My tax return has been submitted and my assignment has too! Quite a day for submissions and I’m relieved. I’m in the last year of uni and I’m so grateful for the support I’ve had to complete it. I am focussed on finishing, which is giving me the mindset to get it done.

What did you do today that your relieved about?

Daddy = “Kids please don’t try and walk on the ice”….
Kids = ☝🏻

They kept edging towards the pond, “I just want to break the ice”. They did make me laugh. And yes, they ignored the instructions. But they did only tap the ice with their toes.

It made for a little adventure this afternoon. I love this Winter sun!

Do your kids love standing on frozen puddles?

The frost is so beautiful 🥶 I love the days where it is frosty but super sunny. The sun was beaming into my office today. It made my heart happy. 

This weather is definitely snuggle & binge watch TV shows kind of weather. I’ve started watching Bloodlines on Netflix. I started it as I just loved “Judy” from Dead to Me and thought I’d give this a try. It’s quite gripping & I’ve not been too good at predicting the storyline so far. Which usually I can!

Do you have any Wintery snuggle shows that I need to add to my watch list?

Summer Holiday family fun camping in Woolacoombe #Travel

Summer Holiday family fun camping in Woolacoombe #Travel

We love Woolacoombe, we have been there a few times and we have always been so lucky with the weather. Booking a family fun camping trip seemed like a brilliant idea. We have never been to such a large campsite before, there was so much to do Woolacoombe Bay you won 5 stars from us! I read my top tips for camping with small children before we went, handy tips.  VIEW the POST

Family fun in Snowdonia National Park

Family fun in Snowdonia National Park

We have spent the first part of our half term holiday in glorious sunshine, Wales is always raining and cloudy when we have been here before, but not this week. The coats and wellies have had to take a back seat and the swimming costumes have taken centre stage. It's been lovely.  VIEW the POST

How to boost body confidence on the beach this summer

It’s that time of year when we all start thinking of taking a holiday to enjoy some well-earned downtime on a local or far-flung tropical beach. But, if you find yourself spending more time worrying about how you’ll look on those golden shores than thinking of all the fun things you can do on them, then listen up mums,  it’s time to address your body confidence.

Our Great British family holiday to Dorset

Our Great British family holiday to Dorset

Now who says that you cannot have a magical Great British family holiday? We certainly did this summer, and do in most locations that we visit. But, I have to admit that we did really love this holiday in particular: the superb quality of the holiday accomodation, it's absolutely stunning location and the weather made it a completely fabulous holiday. Holidays for me are all about the memories and when I look back on the photos and videos it fills me with such warm feelings - that is what family holidays are all about. VIEW the POST

#BeInspired – a camping trip of photos

#BeInspired – a camping trip of photos

I love spontaneous trips with the family and last weekend was no exception, before the poorlies hit the  Constant household anyway, we took to the motorway and had a camping adventure at Happisburgh beach. One of favourite beaches because the kids and dogs can run free without a care in the world, the odd seal to spot and lots going on to take photos of (the most important factor haha). Here is our trip, in photos: VIEW the POST

If I Had One Wish…

Everyone has their own hopes and dreams and we’ve all thought about what we’d wish for if we were given a lamp with a magic Genie inside. Some think about really luxurious things like huge houses, exotic holidays and so on; while others think more logically and consider how they could use the money to improve their lives and those of their friends and family, by clearing the bills for example or taking the family to Disneyworld in Florida to our very own condo and a villa on an Aussie beach.
