Instagram #marchmeetthemaker challenge

We’ve been in Cornwall for almost a month now. It’s been a bit of a whirlwind, not only¬† have we been trying to make feel like home, we also had to build a wall in our workshop to re-instate His ‘n’ Her’s sides, we managed without a wall for a week or two but the […]

Getting My Sh*t Together

So as I’ve said many times September, is my favourite. I don’t know if it is because my Birthday is sometime during the month, or because the seasons start to change again. Sandals get packed away and I start to take stock furiously writing lists in various notebooks and diaries. I use this pre-Christmas time […]

What I’m listening to right now! Sep 2016

¬† Earlier in the year we joined The National Trust. The decision was made after a family half term trip to Cornwall, where virtually everywhere we visited (even some of the car parks) would have been free had we been National Trust members. I think in the end it was a particularly special jacket potato […]

Perfect day for a Wedding

This wedding invitation has been sitting on my dressing table for what feels like months! It was a dark cold Spring day when it dropped through the letter box and the thought of a beautifully sunny day of celebration was just this thing to lift our spirit’s back in those wintery days of March. But […]

May 2016 Playlist

Before May merrily passes by into June (how fast is this year going?) Here’s my May 2016 playlist. I’ll be listening to this over the bank holiday weekend, hopefully in the garden with a bbq sizzling and a glass of something fizzy, but as it’s a British bank holiday it’s bound to rain in which […]
