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…

A perfect world in miniature.

I just had to swing by and share with you the gloriously wonderful contents of a parcel that arrived today, all the way from Australia! I feel so lucky and excited about the forthcoming projects that will be inspired by these beautiful objects and I’d like to say a huge thank you to Steph @ Mostly…

Beating the boredom, discovering new favourite places..

So, up until today my overwhelming feelings about 2017 so far has been boredom. I realise we’re only 6 days in, but hey, that’s me! But today has broken that mood, I’ve had such a lovely day with Eula and our friends and I wanted to share this beautiful place we visited for the first…

New Year…

Happy New Year to you all!  We had a very quiet evening, the girls were in bed by their normal time, then Stu and I stayed up having drinks and listening to music. Very simple, but very nice. January has started for me with a heavy head but overall I’m feeling positive about what’s to…

Impatiently impatient.

My friends all know what I’m like, I’m possibly THE most impatiently impatient person I know. Once I get an idea I run head on into it, tackling all obstacles out of the way, blinkers on, ferocious clearing of the house, filling up everyone’s newsfeeds with sale after sale post, scraping together funds to give…

Let’s eat cake.

I made a quick cake as we had family coming today for a Boxing day at home. It’s my go to recipe, so quick and easy to make and really rather delicious and indulgent.  I thought I’d share it with you. Beetroot Brownie Cake… Ingredients – I’ve doubled the quantities as I always like to…
