Eula’s Room..

Why am I incapable of doing one thing at a time, starting and finishing a project before steamrolling into the next one. I just can’t help myself though, an idea grabs me and I’m off, pulling things down, rejigging furniture, selling on to fund the next new thing. I think perhaps I’d rather do this…

Giving back.

As plans move forward I’m very excited to share with you all my involvement in the revamp of our local birth centre, Penrice. This is where my first daughter, Nancy, was born over 4 years ago as well as my husband, who wouldn’t be that pleased if I told you how long that was! So…

Curry anyone?

Stuck on ideas for dinner? Here’s a quick little recipe share. Today’s a hang about at home and try and catch up day. The girls aren’t anyone’s friend it would seem but the oven is full and a Punjabi Chicken curry is simmering on the hob. I’m a huge curry fan, though I’m not keen…

Dream on.

Yesterday I did the thing you’re not supposed to do if you have any issues with your own home, but no chance of moving. Rule 1, you really shouldn’t go and look around dream properties, but it happened almost by mistake. My parents live in a wonderful 3 storey Georgian town house, attached to a…

Sometimes something catches your eye and you love it, but that doesn’t always mean it will work where you need it. I thought I’d share…

Dreams and nightmares.

I feel exhausted. I’ve had one of those marathon nightmares that completely affects your entire day following it. You know the type. Worst of all Stu was the cause of said nightmare, in the dream world and now I feel angry and resentful towards him and the poor man hasn’t even done anything! What was…

It’s ok, you’ve got this.

Some days are like treading water, you’re staying afloat, but not going anywhere. Surviving. Making it through until bedtime. Wine time. You time. Today though I feel like it’s ok, Alice, you’ve got this! Limited screentime for the girls is going well. Instead the jigsaws are regaining their appeal, the Sylvanians are getting more attention…
