Our next renovation project

April 4, 2018 admin 0

A couple of weeks ago we started thinking about our next renovation project and decided it was time to move out side and tackle the garden, hopefully in time for summer. The garden space we have isn’t massive and is split over three levels, which makes it a bit awkward but I think we have finally come up with a design, although this may change several times before the project starts.   We have decided […]

We were right, they were wrong

June 30, 2017 admin 0

We were right and they were wrong, I knew it all along. I don’t know why my husband and I ever thought that a 7 year old and a 4 year old were wiser or smarter than us. I don’t know why we believed the promises and justifications that left their cute little mouths or why we let ourselves fall for those deliciously beautiful big eyes they both have, again.

An anniversary afternoon tea at Patisserie Valerie

It would have […]

He was larger than your average cyclist and although he […]

The husband, 300 miles and Stealth gels

April 19, 2016 admin 2

As some of you may know my crazy ass husband is cycling 300 miles in 3 days in September to raise money for Children in Need with a whole load of other crazy ass individuals who all work for Llyods bank (make of that what you will!). Although my OH can ride a bike without stabalisers this will be the biggest event he has ever attempted and it goes without saying that I have every faith in […]

What will you be buying for Father’s Day?

May 25, 2015 admin 2

This week I replaced my beauty article with a father’s day gift guide for birds on the blog. Personally I love reading other peoples gift guides as they are great way to get inspiration as it is so easy to fall into a rut and buy the same gifts for the same people year in year out, so I thought I would write about my top 3 ideas in the hope it inspires someone else.
