I’ve been itching to get back to blogging properly again and with the return of Little Loves over at Morgana’s gaff, I had to join in this week. So much has happened over the summer and right now, it feels as though the school holidays have gone on forever and ever. Let’s just say that the entire house could do with a jet wash and my usual organised self seems to have gone AWOL. Anyone else popping to the supermarket for one bag of food almost every single day at the moment? Oh routine how we love thee. How has your summer been? We are still in the throes of our garden refurbishment and the patience is beginning to wane… View Post

So I gave us all a little break last week and have subsequently decided that it’s better for everyone concerned if I only join in with Little Loves once a fortnight from now. I get a chance to actually do something worth sharing and you get more interesting content to read. Win/win! Since my last post, I’ve been on a retreat day which was absolute bliss, acquired a tan then lost it (we are in Britain after all) and I’ve picked Twitter back up again. Are you on Twitter? I had forgotten how much I love it for ‘bants’ (as my teenagers would say). I’ve re-engaged with the blogging community as well as discovering some new people to follow. Anyway,… View Post

As you all know, April is a ‘No New Clothes’ month for me. You mean you didn’t know? Where’ve you been? If you follow me on social media, you will be all too aware that it’s kind of killing me. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t have a wardrobe exploding with new clothes; I think it’s more to do with that age old problem – the minute you’re denied something, it’s all you can think about. Sound familiar? Anyway, where was I? As soon as the sun came out, my eyes were drawn to t-shirts. Right now, it’s all about the slogan t-shirt. They’re everywhere! The issue my friends, is that if you’re the wrong side of 40, slogans such as ‘Don’t text… View Post

Have you been enjoying the sunshine this week? I realised yesterday that we haven’t had any rain at all over the Easter holidays – I reckon that’s a first! The amazing temperatures at the weekend got me panicking thinking about our summer holiday which after much deliberation, I finally booked this week. I think we’ve made a good decision. Apologies for my absence from Little Loves last week but I ran out of time and felt that it would be a good opportunity to give my mind a little rest. But here I am back with a double whammy… Read I’ve actually really struggled with reading recently. I think it might have something to do with the fact that I have too many non-fiction books on the… View Post

April might be a self-declared ‘No New Clothes’ month but no one said anything about accessories now did they? So this month I will be having a little nosey around the internet (one of my favourite past-times) in search of a few gems that I will willingly share with you lovely lot. Bags, I’m obsessed with them. I have a bag for pretty much every occasion and each item of footwear in my possession. I think long and hard about what I need from said bag before purchasing, and usually invest in something that will last me a while. Right now? I have no summer bag and I’m starting to stress a little about it. I’m certain that the internet knows… View Post
