OK so the weather may not exactly be playing ball right now, but we are now well and truly in spring! Which when it comes to our homes, means one thing only, it’s time for a good ol’ ‘spring clean’ and a sort out. I don’t know about you but I always think there’s something rather lovely and motivating about having a good tidy up. Getting organised. Throwing junk out.
THERE’S so much to love about Christmas… But in my opinion, the best bit of all. The thing I most love (besides the booze and presents that is) is the Christmas tree. And to be more specific, putting up and decorating our Christmas tree. Since being a wee nipper, nothing makes me feel more festive than battling with some branches, dangling some lights and getting tangled in some tinsel. Sure
CHRISTMAS is coming…the goose is getting fat. (Or something like that). But are you ready? And more importantly, is your home ready for the festive onslaught? It might feel yonks away yet, but let’s face it, Christmas is almost upon us. And so it’s time to get prepared.

WE’VE been in our house for three years now. And our lovely 1920s house, still needs a lot of work. When we moved in, with Elsie at just six weeks old (yep, totally mad!), it was like an 80s woodchip city. And although we’ve done lots of work on the house already – knocked down walls, put in a new kitchen etc etc – the one room in the house that
I DON’T know about you, but I love this time of year. That ‘back to school’ feeling. That feeling of change in the air, that fresh start boost we all need and the thought of exciting opportunities ahead. So when the lovely people at Zazzle asked me if I’d like to treat myself to some ‘back to school’ or if you like ‘back to blogging’ goodies, well I snapped their
THE other night I was cooking tea with Elsie, teaching her to make lasagne. It was an ordinary moment in our ordinary lives, but yet for a moment or two, I could have almost closed my eyes and gone back in time. To one of the moments when I was cooking with my mum, as a little girl, back in our (then) state of the art eighties kitchen. Some
IF yesterday’s post was a little woe is me, you could say today’s post is WOW is me. Because today I am delighted to talk about one of my favourite things in the entire world. Nope not heels (although they are one of them) but flowers. Fabulous, fresh flowers that make my heart, well, bloom. I just cannot get enough of fresh flowers currently. In fact it’s probably safe to say,
