Pretty wild poppies
Bits & Bobs: June 2015

My bits & bobs post for last month is a little late – sorry! I have been really poorly over the last week with this horrible virus that’s going around, so haven’t really been doing anything other than sleeping. And to be honest, I’m not really a sleepy person so it has been a bit strange for me! It felt like someone stole our weekend last weekend (Tom had it too) so we’re looking forward to doing some of the things we had planned to do this weekend. Fingers crossed for nice weather so we can get out in the garden! These poppies in the main photo are growing on the old waggonway near our house, and I’m keeping an eye on them so that I can get some seeds from them when they’re ready. Read More

Bits & Bobs: May 2015 | Hello! Hooray!
Bits & Bobs: May 2015
It’s time for my monthly round up of Bits & Bobs for the month – yay! This month has been really busy in our day jobs, and I haven’t felt like I’ve had much time or headspace to do lots of crafting. So I’m really looking forward to having more time in June now that things will be a bit quieter!  Read More

Bits & Bobs: April 2015

April has been a jam-packed month – it started out with the Easter holiday, which was just so lovely and relaxing! Since then things have been a bit hectic with my day job, but that hasn’t stopped me trying to fit in as much making as possible. The weather has been a bit unpredictable this month, but with all this lovely sun and rain the garden is flourishing. Lots to be thankful for this month!  Read More

Bits & Bobs: March 2015
Regular readers of my blog may well have been expecting the usual Instagram Gallery on the last day of the month, but I’ve been having a little spring clean on my blog, and decided to mix things up a bit (I am also a little late with it for various reasons – sorry!). It was also prompted by one of the lessons in the Blog Life course that I’ve been doing with A Beautiful Mess, where they talk about having a little refresh every now and again. It was something I was wondering about changing for a while, especially as I’ve got my Instagram feed at the bottom of my pages (if you keep scrolling, you’ll get there!). I also wanted to share with you some different things too (in addition to some photos), like books I’m reading or things I’ve been listening to, or things that I want to share but don’t necessarily need a whole post. So this month I thought I’d just go for it and shake things up! I struggled to come up with a name for my new feature for quite a while…but settled on ‘Bits & Bobs’ because that really does exactly what it says on the tin. Bits & Bobs I’d like to share with you each month – so here goes! Read More

Bits and bobs

Hey everyone! I’m so sorry that it has been ages since my last post. It has been a long time since I had a couple of weeks away, and usually I would have had a few posts scheduled in (so that you’d never know!) but with everything that’s been happening, I wasn’t quite so organised… So this is a bits and bobs post with news about happenings here.  Read More

Instagram Gallery: January 2015

It’s time for my Instagram gallery for the month! January has been a hectic month here, but it has been a great one! I celebrated my 29th birthday, and our kitchen build is almost complete. I caught up with lots of friends and we survived the gales and a bit of snow, and I’m enjoying my 365 Grateful challenge. Here’s a gallery of some of my Instagram photos from January:

Christmas in Maryport
We spent Christmas in Maryport and had such a wonderful time! The weather forecast was pretty terrible and it rained all day on the day we travelled (it was that really fine rain that soaks you through!), and we expected it to be the same for the whole week. But we were actually very lucky, and there were only a couple of showers in the end – yay! I took a few photos round and about and thought I would share a few of my favourites with you. I love the seaside all year round, but there’s just something special about it in winter. We escaped the snow (it very rarely settles here anyway) but it was very cold!  Read More
