Another month, another home. I’ve been looking forward to this one for a while now, firstly because Morgana is the genius behind the weekly blog linky ‘Little Loves’ and writes one of my favourite blogs; secondly because she moved house only a couple of months ago. Who doesn’t get excited about looking round a new home? Firstly let me introduce you to Morgana who lives in Lancashire with her husband and two headstrong (her word not mine!) daughters. Running a small business herself (Little and Fierce which sells all kinds of kids’ accessories) Morgana is a massive advocate for small business owners and start ups. On her blog, you’ll find a link to her online shop as well as an… View Post

Remember those college days when you were given a summer reading list? Anyone else never read any of the books ‘cos they looked so unbelievably dull? Nowadays I love reading on holiday, in fact it’s probably one of the only times that I consistently read every day, devouring books like they are going out of fashion. I’m sure you will agree that there is nothing more disappointing than opening up a book that you’ve lugged halfway across the world, to find it’s one that you mistakenly *did* judge by its cover. In short: a dud. So I’ve put together a list, with the help of some fellow bloggers, of books that have been read and recommended. Obviously we don’t all… View Post

I am really starting to look forward to having a sneaky peak at a new home every month; I hope that you are too. If you would like to check out one of my previous nosy parker moments, you’re welcome to check out Becky’s home. This month I would like to introduce you to Claire, from Clarina’s Contemplations. I first met Claire about 5 years ago and we clicked immediately. She’s much younger than me (obviously I hate her for that reason!) but we share a faith in God that brought us together and I love watching how she weaves this into her life as a mum of four – yes you heard me correctly! Claire never ceases to amaze me… View Post

Since we last convened, there’s been a two-day women’s conference, a day trip to London, various medial appointments, a trip to the dog groomers, some lovely social get togethers, a family party, and even a local bloggers coffee morning (I feel a tad old calling it that but you know what I mean). It’s been a whirlwind folks and there’s no sign of it calming down before the end of term. I always forget that things go mental as the end of term creeps ever nearer and it takes me by surprise. I actually ended up cancelling three engagements last week because I simply couldn’t fit it all in, even turning down a ticket to Wimbledon’s Centre Court on Friday… 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
