๐ŸŒŠ โ€œNot all those who #wander are lost.โ€ J.R.R.Tolkien.โฃ
โฃ
I love this quote and it is so true. We sometimes ๐ฐ๐š๐ง๐๐ž๐ซ aimlessly without purpose, never lost, just exploring the surroundings. I love that when we go on holiday we always ๐ž๐ฑ๐ฉ๐ฅ๐จ๐ซ๐ž where we are staying.โฃ
โฃ
Itโ€™s also nice that when we walk, we talk. The kids chat about things they wouldnโ€™t normally talk about and we have quite random conversations as a family.โฃ
โฃ
Noah was feeling sad today. It wasnโ€™t nice seeing him emotional. Daddy took him for a walk and they talked about his feelings. His girlfriend has broken up with him and heโ€™s really sad. Daddy tried to reassure him that heโ€™ll probably have lots of girlfriends. His reply was โ€œbut I donโ€™t want lots of girlfriendsโ€. He breaks my heart with his big ๐ž๐ฆ๐จ๐ญ๐ข๐จ๐ง๐ฌ. ๐Ÿฅฐ He is going to be a very loving and caring husband one day.โฃ

โ„๏ธ Welcome December! Here are...

And, just like that... they walked away from November. Itโ€™s gone really quickly considering. Weโ€™ve had lots of family adventures along the way and itโ€™s also been a time of reflection.

This photo is from a trip to the #forest last year. I loved this location.  Darwin Forest was just beautiful and I canโ€™t wait to explore it some more next year.

Iโ€™ve seen lots of inspiration over the weeks, places to explore in the UK with the family. I am looking forward to 2021 and planning lots of adventures.

Do you have any UK locations you want to explore next year?

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
โฃ
Which character do you like best?

๐ŸŽธ Isla was super lucky...

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

Calling all female travellers! Wondering what to take with you? Read this first!

The idea of packing for your travelling adventures is both exciting and extremely overwhelming. So as a budding traveller, itโ€™s something you might be tempted to put off until the last minute. From toiletries to sanitary items, what clothes, how many pairs of shoes, what kind of clothing is best, what about your personal items? The list is seemingly endless, but donโ€™t worry. If youโ€™re wondering where to start, just read on for some super simple and helpful packing tips to that will get you started.   VIEW the POST

Whatโ€™s inside the locked suitcase? #SkyWitness #ForThePeople

Whatโ€™s inside the locked suitcase? #SkyWitness #ForThePeople

As you may remember on Saturday morning a very locked suitcase arrived on my doorstep. An hour later a mobile phone turned up saying I had to await further instructions to crack the code on the suitcase. Well I can now reveal what is inside the suitcase... You can follow #SkyWitness on social media to keep up to date with the new dramas and other peoples suitcases of course. VIEW the POST

A surprise parcel from Sky Witness #SkyWitness

OK I can definitely FEEL THE DRAMA, I am so excited and also so impatient – for two reasons: one because I got this very “locked” suitcase in the post this morning and secondly because Sky Living is changing to Sky Witness on Monday and it’s my favourite channel, with my favourite shows on it. The suitcase had a note on it that says Feel the Drama on one side and that I have to wait for the unlocking instructions on the other. Eek!

A guide to packing what’s important for a family holiday

So you have booked a wonderful holiday in the sun, or snow, you didn't upgrade to have the heavier luggage (which always seems to be an extra upgrade these days) and you are packing for a family holiday on limited baggage space: what do you need? That's the million dollar question isn't it? I was recently inspired by a fantastic video made by Florida 4 Less which guides you to pack your suitcase like a pro. I will definitely need this advice when packing for our cruise next year, EEK!  VIEW the POST

Toddler Week: Gruffalo Trunki and Chums

Being a huge Gruffalo fan in the Constant household, Noah was very lucky to receive his very own Gruffalo Trunki to look after. We even got sent some Gruffalo chums, the little chums are fabulous extras that Noah just adores too. I felt so lucky and little Noah within seconds of seeing it and crying for it, put it in the lounge and sat on him! Its like he knew what he was meant to do with it, so I have to hand it to those Trunki designers. It does the job very very well!
