So, I may have got a bit into Happy Valley last night and lost track of time & forgot to post. I hadn’t started it but it looked like the kind of program I would like & I wasn’t wrong.

I’ve started from the first episode. So no spoilers in the comments please. Episode 3 though 😩 I didn’t expect that one…

Anyone else thoroughly hate Tommy?

This was the photo I was going to post. Our Wintery trip to the beach with our @charliemcleod1z jackets on to keep us dry and warm. We love them. It’s good to have the right equipment to enable you to get outside as much as possible. Especially on those sunny Wintery days…

I loved this photo of me & the old man. Despite me crying on the majority of this walk & it looks like I have a wonky eye, because of my hat… I do love it.

Snoopy is so goofy and I think this photo shows off his personality perfectly 🤣 He’s never been a sharp pup. But man is he a good snuggler…

It was a lovely walk, despite the tears, and I’m glad we explored in and around the green. Snoopy and I managed about 1500 steps in an hour. Snoopy wants a sniffathon, rather than a walk.

Anyone else love taking goofy photos of their pets?

“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?

Just a spoonful of… honey!

Just a spoonful of… honey!

You know the good old song, a spoonful of sugar helps the medicine go down. Well I have adapted it to my own little theory, a spoonful of honey helps the medicine become unnecessary. Completely. It might just be a coincidence, but since I stopped having sugar in my tea and replaced it for honey - I have not had any illnesses. It has been about 5 months now since I cut out sugar and I am having at least one spoonful of honey per day. VIEW the POST

A simple and healthy dessert #OnkenTips

The other week I had the pleasure of going to London to film with Onken and share a really simple recipe idea that hubby devised. The kids love natural yoghurt and honey but hubby wanted to make it more grown up, so he added a twist. You can Win with Onken too by buying their natural yogurt in the supermarket and visiting their website. VIEW the POST

Wetherspoons has gone all international…

Wetherspoon has added American and international inspired meals to their new menu. The new meals are Peri-peri roast half chicken (British chicken, fresh coleslaw and chips); as well as New York Style Hot Dog (Classic hot dog and Gourmet hot dog – the Classic is a pork hot dog, served with chips and the Gourmet is a pork hot dog with chilli con carne, cheese and beer-battered onion rings). Wetherspoon pubs also offering a Tennessee burger (beef or chicken breast, bacon, honey glaze, made with Jack Daniel’s® Tennessee Honey) and Full rack of BBQ ribs (with BBQ sauce, fresh coleslaw and beer-battered onion rings).

The Active Honey Company…

The Active Honey Company…

The Constant household have been reviewing the honey products made by the Active Honey Company over the past couple of weeks and they have been liked very much, by little Noah especially. The Active Honey Company have just brought out a fabulous range of Active Rainforest honey from Chile, it is from unpolluted and uninhabited volcanic areas of Chile. We got the chance to review 2 products: the antiseptic spray and some very yummy edible honey. The antiseptic honey is very potent when applied directly to the skin, because it is raw and unpasteurised. It is sterile and can therefore be used on cuts and wounds, and it can also be used for dry skin, spots and blemishes. Over the past couple of weeks this has come in very handy with Noah and the cold weather, Noah is constantly banging himself on the furniture and cutting himself and my skin has been very dry ...
