We had a lovely afternoon exploring the cycling trails at High Lodge, Thetford. It was nice to be together.

We have some exciting things to show you that’s new to @forestryengland and High Lodge. Watch this space.

Do you like exploring the woods? 🌳

Our trip is in collaboration with @forestryengland - however this post is not part of the collaboration.

We’re jumping into July like…. 🕶

I have lots on the agenda for July,including woodland visits, beach visits and catching up on my uni. I also have a “to read” pile that’s growing! I took my book to Centre Parcs but I didn’t read one sentence 🤦🏼‍♀️

I’m looking forward to seeing all the Summery photos in July and a huge thank you to everyone that joined in with June!

We took a trip to Great Grandmas after school. It was nice to have dinner with her and the kiddies enjoyed exploring at the bottom of the garden.

I love her garden, it backs onto the river. There’s so much to see just standing here. Not to mention grandma’s beautiful garden. That rose bush is just amazing.

I love how the horizon has changed over the years. When I was a child you could see for miles. Over to Shuttleworth where the planes do their air shows.

Now, it’s all overgrown and the trees have gained a lot of height. It’s amazing how much it can change in 39 years!

Do you have a family house that’s been in your life since you were born?

The view from our sofa in the morning is the best. Squirrels, moorhens, ducks, deer and lots of birds… it’s amazing to sit here and watch them.

I love that our garden is full of trees and the lake. It’s meant we’ve seen more wildlife than normal.

We’ve been feeding the deers berries and lots of nuts and seeds for all the other animals. The squirrels are loving the peanuts!

There’s a huge family of geese here too. They have been coming for seed in the evenings.

The squirrels and deer are so tame. We’re quite shocked at how close they get. A squirrel took a peanut from my hand. Made my day!

🦌 I’m so happy; after 10 minutes of being in our lodge the deer popped up in the garden. There was 2 in total. They looked so cute. I loved their V shapes on their noses. They came about a metre close. So tame. 

We’ve made the most out of @centerparcsuk break so far. Table tennis, badminton, Bella Italia and an evening swim in the most amazing pool area ever.

I can’t wait to go in the pool tomorrow. And play more badminton 🏸 (my favourite sport).

So far, outside our back window we’ve seen the 2 deer, lots of ducks, geese, Moorhens and a heron. A few different breeds of geese too.

We also saw a tiny mouse darting all over the woodland floor in search of food. He was very cute. 🐭 

Anyone else love being surrounded by so much nature?

Todays #mummyphotoaday prompt is view. I’d love to see your favourite views! Whether that’s a landscape, person or an object.

This is one of my favourite views on a dog walking route we found near our home. The sky looks like it goes on for miles. The big yellow sun painting everything with its golden glow.

You can just see my fam in the distance walking the dogs. 🐾 

What’s your favourite view?

We made the most of Summer Solstice last night. We took Rambo for a walk and soaked up some sun and fresh air.

It’s the first time we’d all been out together for a dog walk in a long time. It’s really nice as the kids always open up and talk about random things.

I loved the colours in this photo. It was golden hour and I managed to hide the sun behind the bushes. They’re looking into the pond. Not sure Rambo understood the assignment.

Did you make it out for an evening walk?

7 Family Summer fun indoor activities for some quality time

7 Family Summer fun indoor activities for some quality time

Spending time with your family is pretty important to help you de-stress and remind you of the close bond you share with your loved ones. In fact, quality time with family is associated with improved mental and physical health and a boost in self-confidence. However, with the kind of busy lives we lead, it is natural to not be able to make a lot of time. This is why it is a good idea to avail any and every opportunity you get and make the most of it. Also, with the English weather you always need an alternative, so Summer fun indoor activities are essentials.

Indoor rainy day ideas to keep the family entertained

Indoor rainy day ideas to keep the family entertained

Let’s begin with a line from a famous song, “I don’t care what the weatherman says, if the weatherman says it’s rainin’, you’ll never hear me complainin’”. Wind and rain is the end of all weekend plans. You work all week, and the kids go to school, only for the skies to turn dark grey and reward you with 48 hours of miserable blustery downpours. If only someone were in charge of the weather to whom we could lodge a complaint. Or having a weather remote control; now there's an idea. However, having ideas for those indoor rainy day needs is always nice to have in the back pocket! VIEW the POST

Picture Show a creative and fun family game #BoardGameClub

As you know we joined the Asmodee Board Game Club, we love it. We are huge fans of Asmodee games, we especially love Just One and Taco Cat Goat Cheese Pizza. Board Game Club means we get to review different board games each month and share our thoughts and tips with you. Picture Show is absolutely amazing fun and creative too. We had lots of fun learning about each other as we played this game.

Creating a beautiful family Afternoon Tea at home

Creating a beautiful family Afternoon Tea at home

I love Afternoon Tea, it is my favourite thing to go out and enjoy with family and friends. So, when Daddy had the idea to recreate an Afternoon Tea experience at home, for the kiddies, I jumped at the chance. Did you know it's National Tea Day on Tuesday 21 April 2020 too, so a perfect activity for the family. I think we made it look really authentic and the kiddies really loved it. Here's what we did to make our special family Afternoon Tea at home during lockdown... VIEW the POST

Creating a homelearning egg hunt around your home with #Haribo

Creating a homelearning egg hunt around your home with #Haribo

Whilst we are still in the Easter holidays, I thought I would share a fun idea to keep the children entertained (and the grown-ups for setting it up). This is a homelearning egg hunt, the prizes could be anything from a bag of sweets to tokens towards something else. Like earning so many minutes of tablet time that day. My kids love earning things.  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…
