Life in lock down

25 June 2020 /

Well, I wasn’t expecting to write a post with the title ‘Life in lock down’ in 2020, but I’m guessing that this is pretty much how we all feel about the current situation!

My goodness what a year and a bit | Hello! Hooray!

My goodness, what a year (and a bit)!

Decluttering

18 May 2015 /

As much as I have put off admitting this over the past few years, it is now time for a declutter at home. Such is the level of decluttering required, it will no doubt be known in the future as ‘The Great Declutter of 2015’ – but it really will be worth it! Naturally, most of the…

Our dream kitchen

Kitchen progress: part 3

25 January 2015 /

This week was week 8 on our kitchen build – and what a week it was! Thankfully, our windows and door arrived as scheduled on Tuesday, which meant that the old kitchen wall could be knocked through. I worked from home on Tuesday afternoon and by the time I got home at lunchtime, the windows…

Entering the last year of my twenties…

24 January 2015 /

I turned 29 this week, and have been thinking a lot about different things that have happened and things that might be. Maybe it’s because it’s a New Year thing, or maybe because 29 is quite near to 30, or maybe a little bit of both. I’ve been wondering how I feel about entering the…

Kitchen progress: Part 2

17 January 2015 /

Our builders have been working so hard and are making brilliant progress with our new kitchen! The weather has been a bit hit and miss, and the main problem has been the gale force winds that many of us have been experiencing around the UK over the past couple of weeks. The roof (which is…
