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? Itโ€™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?

๐ŸŽธ Isla was super lucky to receive the new ๐‹.๐Ž.๐‹ ๐’๐ฎ๐ซ๐ฉ๐ซ๐ข๐ฌ๐ž! ๐‘๐ž๐ฆ๐ข๐ฑ ๐Ž.๐Œ.๐† ๐Ÿ ๐ฉ๐š๐œ๐ค. Whatโ€™s that? Well itโ€™s this fun pack that contains 2 L.O.L Surprise! Remix dolls and the box turns into a cool twin deck mixer!โฃ Awesome @lolsurprise.uk 
โฃ
Isla loved it. The pack contains ๐‘๐จ๐œ๐ค๐ž๐ซ ๐๐จ๐ข ๐˜ข๐˜ฏ๐˜ฅ ๐๐ฎ๐ง๐ค ๐†๐ซ๐ซ๐ซ๐ฅ 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!โฃ
โฃ
Rocker Boi is the big brother to fan favourite character, Rocker. Punk Grrrl is the sister to fan favourite character, Punk Boi.โฃ
โฃ
The thing that Isla loved the most was the ๐ฅ๐ฒ๐ซ๐ข๐œ ๐ฆ๐š๐ ๐š๐ณ๐ข๐ง๐ž, 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 theyโ€™re all in a band together.โฃ
โฃ
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!โฃ
โฃ
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!โฃ
โฃ
You can grab this set from @smythstoys for only ยฃ54.99 which is a brilliant price for what you get. Perfect for L.O.L Surprise! Fans for Christmas.โฃ

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 natureโ€™s beauty.

Itโ€™s #mindfulness at its best. Not only are you taking in the moment but youโ€™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! ๐Ÿคฃ

Iโ€™m practicing the mantra โ€œAmongst the chaos there is calmโ€.

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

๐Ÿ‚ Happy Thanksgiving everyone... I hope youโ€™re day has been filled with gratitude and loved ones. Ok, ironic that the tiers were announced today and upset the nation... however, Iโ€™m trying to stay optimistic. How do you feel?โฃ
โฃ
I had a nice 2 hour walk with my furbabies this morning, which was just lovely. Itโ€™s nice to soak up the beautiful frosty mornings.โฃ
โฃ
My friend surprised me with this homemade pumpkin pie this afternoon. Itโ€™s quite possibly the most thoughtful thing. Iโ€™ve never tried it and I was asking about thanksgiving. The traditions in the US sound a lot of fun.โฃ
โฃ
One thing that did make us laugh: in the US they have a tradition called โ€œ๐“๐ฎ๐ซ๐ค๐ž๐ฒ ๐“๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ฌโ€. 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 โ€œthe trotsโ€ meant in the UK. Oh how we laughed. Iโ€™ve dared her to wear her turkey trots tee next year and see how people stare!โฃ
โฃ
To anyone that doesnโ€™t know, ๐ญ๐ซ๐จ๐ญ๐ฌ mean diarrhoea in the UK. Iโ€™m now wondering if this derived from the turkey trots... Iโ€™ll have to investigate.โฃ
โฃ
๐๐ฎ๐ฆ๐ฉ๐ค๐ข๐ง ๐ฉ๐ข๐ž was a hit with everyone. Isla absolutely adored it and I cannot believe weโ€™ve never tried it before. It will definitely be on the Constant menu again...โฃ
โฃ
I hope everyone has had something to be thankful for today. Despite the pandemic & the horrors thatโ€™s bringing. I think we should all be proud of how weโ€™ve dealt with this year... every single one of us.โฃ

โฃ
I thought Iโ€™d have some fun with my new @vaxcleanhome too. VAX have brought out the new range: ๐๐ฅ๐š๐๐ž๐Ÿ’, ๐†๐ฅ๐ข๐๐ž and ๐’๐ฉ๐จ๐ญ๐ฅ๐ž๐ฌ๐ฌ๐†๐จ. They all share the same battery too which is rather clever.โฃ
โฃ
This is my ๐๐ฅ๐š๐๐ž๐Ÿ’. I love her. She cleans the floors better than any corded vacuum Iโ€™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.โฃ
โฃ
It picks up all the pet hair without a hitch and the lights at the front enable me to see in darker areas. If youโ€™re looking for the perfect companion to keep your home clean this Christmas: get a Blade4!โฃ

On the eve of thanksgiving itโ€™s definitely got my thinking about what Iโ€™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. Theyโ€™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. Iโ€™d never thought about this before.

It made me feel proud. Of myself and Hubby. Weโ€™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 wouldnโ€™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 itโ€™s going well. This is our beautiful flooring from @harveymaria - itโ€™s a luxury vinyl tile that just looks amazing and feels nice to walk on too. This particular pattern is โ€œLattice Tarnโ€ 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 canโ€™t wait to show it off properly and do a before and after reels of our utility room. Iโ€™ve also got some shots of how it was installed (professionally made I add).

Itโ€™s turned a room I didnโ€™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. Iโ€™ve tagged @harveymaria so please do check out their other fantastic patterns.

Although you probably wouldnโ€™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 Iโ€™ve noticed that more so whilst Iโ€™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 ๐Ÿ™ˆ. 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 ๐Ÿ˜ฑ๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ๐Ÿง‘๐Ÿปโ€๐ŸŽ„๐Ÿคถ๐Ÿป๐ŸŽ Whose ready?

Iโ€™ve not even started yet...๐Ÿคญ

Noah's Potty Diary – Day 4

Noah's Potty Diary – Day 4

Day 4 has been a bit like yesterday, when we were home and had time to think, we were great at using the potty. But out and about not so good... VIEW the POST

Noahโ€™s Potty Diary โ€“ Day 3

Noahโ€™s Potty Diary โ€“ Day 3

Today has been a bit of a topsy turvy day; we went to the park this morning and dressed Noah in normal clothes (I didn't do his shorts up though so they were easy to pull down) and we did no wee wee's on the potty and had 3 accidents in his pants! VIEW the POST

Noah's Potty Diary – Day 2

The only real preparation I did for Day 2 was to make sure I had plenty of pants washed and dry ready for another attempt, after yesterday and around 20 pairs of pants I think it was a safe bet. I did change his pants even after a dribble of wee yesterday, maybe I was being overly clean but hey ho – I am prepared for a few days of extra washing. I woke up with the view that if he really didn’t get it today then I would not push it any further because I could sense him getting really stressed out yesterday. I had nothing to do today, except be there for Noah and watch out for the signs and I think it really paid off as we did it every time…

Noah's Potty Diary – Day 1

Noah's Potty Diary – Day 1

I have heard many stories from people's potty training efforts and also have been informed on many occasion that boys are always harder to teach. So I have waited until now, he is 2 and a half and is showing some very encouraging signs: He loves wiping his bottom and putting the paper in the loo and flushing.ย  He always tells Mummy & Daddy what they are doing on the loo if he's watching. He takes his nappy off himself. He is very aware of when Isla's nappy is being changed and watches like a hawk. Telling me what she has done each time. When we change his nappy, he always tells us that he is putting on a clean nappy. He 90% of the time tells us he has done a poop and that he needs cleaning. We have naked time after bath and he has done a poop on the floor before - unphased by ...
