First Sunday faves of the new year and new decade! The tree is down, the kids are about ready to head back to school on Tuesday and I’m trying to get the house in some sort of order ready for restarting working full time. You may see a slight change to the way this blog […]

2020 – Looking ahead

I know there are lots of posts floating around at the moment reflecting on 2019. This isn’t one of them. I don’t want to look back on 2019 if I can help it. It was an awful year. Yes, I have learnt a lot from the trials of it but the sooner I embrace the […]

Sunday Faves December 8th

Another week and still no decorations in our house. Unlike many people this year I have always been a 2 weekends before Christmas kind of girl. It has nothing to do with me not liking Christmas, I love the holiday season. No, it is more to do with the little space we have and this […]

Sunday Faves December 1st

December. Yes, you read that right. We are now in December. The month of excessive spending and general happiness to all. Except for this year, I won’t be the one spending excessively. I will be the one making my own gifts for family and friends. I will be buying one main gift for my three […]

Sunday Faves November 24th

Yet another rollercoaster of a week over here. It seems like the universe is sending over everything before the turn of a new decade. I one way at least I can hopefully get it all out of the way before the New Year and be able to start afresh. Even though the universe seems to […]

This week has been a rollercoaster. First off our poorly car has had to go to the garage and needs too much done to put it through it’s MOT. This has left us carless but luckily I have a great family who helps us out more than they should. Yet, by Friday things seemed to […]
