Quick, easy and beautiful twin slot shelving.

This is one of those blogs I’ve been meaning to write for weeks and weeks, but when I’ve thought about taking photos it hasn’t been the right time of the day, or the girls bedrooms have been a total no go pig sty  (yes, believe it or not we are also human in this house,…

Picture framing life hack.

Isn’t it bloody infuriating when you’re trying to frame a nice print, you give the glass a good wipe to get rid of any marks/ dust, pop the print in, do it all up, flip it over and THERE ARE RUDDY SPLINTERS OF WOOD AND BITS AND PIECES STILL STUCK IN THERE!! So you do…

How to extend your home with style for less than you might think.

Our extension plays such an important role in our home life, it has brought us a sense of freedom, space to exist alongside each other, but also room to breathe, to play and create. It means we can stay in the house which we had already made into a home. You see photos of it almost every day…

Pancakes galore!

Evening all, so how many pancakes have you eaten today? I was aiming for none (supposed to be on the health wagon) but have so far consumed 4, whoops! The girls have never been that taken with the traditional pancake, I’m a huge fan of sugar and lemon on a thin pancake, pure and simple,…

Stuff, stuff, stuff. Is Minimalism for me?

I’m pretty good, pretty ruthless with ‘stuff’ or I like to think I am. Out it goes, sold on, donated or recycled if it isn’t doing it’s job, isn’t bringing me or someone in the family happiness… But. I buy. A. Lot. I tell myself it’s ok, ok to try things out, test out ideas,…

Hello lovely people…

Oh look, it’s been a while, again! We’ve been busy being ill, multiple ailments one after other and then there was half term, which I was dreading as I’ve been so exhausted, but we slowed everything down, made very few plans and actually it was just what we all needed. We stayed home a lot,…

Happy things…

Hello lovelies, it’s been a little while longer than planned since my last post, I had hoped to be sharing Eula’s finished room with you by now, or even perhaps Nancy’s, but I’ve been fighting various bugs and exhaustion for what seems like forever and all projects have ground to a halt. I just wanted…

Chocolate and Peanut Butter mug cake.

Today I’m in a bad mood and not much can shift it, but in a brief moment of child free bliss I just visited a happy place, created in the microwave! Here’s the recipe for Chocolate and Peanut Butter Mug Cake… You will need – A standard sized mug 3tbsp plain flour 2.5tbsp caster sugar…

A day of nothing.

Today the girls are learning an important life lesson, sometimes you just stay home and do nothing.  “What, nothing, no plans at all?!” Nancy declared incredulously this morning, a look of disgust on her face. “Yep. Nothing.” They’re a bit spoilt with entertainment to be honest, it’s quite often much easier to be out than…

Remove water marks with coconut oil, amongst other uses.

I thought I’d very quickly share my public service announcement which has been doing the sounds on social media today. Coconut oil magically gets rid of water marks! So simple, so quick.  I tried it out today… Before I’m always careful to use a coaster, but the glass had a hidden crack in it and…
