Today as part of my attempt to complete Blogmas; a post a day from 1 December until Christmas I thought I’d talk about spending time with friends and loved ones and enjoying the Christmas Cheer. With life being so hectic, so full on, so now now now life can actually pass us by. Too often we spend time glued to devises and call it social interaction. But how social are we?  Do we really get a real social interaction kick from talking to somebody online as opposed to actually sitting in the same room as them and actually conversing face… View Post

My teenage daughter (13) absolutely adores flamingos.  Without a doubt they are her favourite animal.  She loves to visit Chester Zoo to watch them ‘strut’ their stuff.  They are such beautiful graceful animals.  when we moved back to the Midlands earlier this year, the room she was having was in need of redecorating.  One thing she wanted was flamingos! She adored their coral colour and came across these nail varnishes and loved the grey colour too. The decision was made. Her room was to be coral and grey. Imagine her excitement when we came across this wallpaper! The wallpaper was… View Post

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the renovations I am doing on our home. The room we started with was the bathroom. First job was to remove the old suite and fit the new one.

I’ve not been blogging as much as I would like lately and that is because I have been busy with house renovations.  Having moved from Wales back to The Midlands I am busy renovating our 1960’s detached house.  I lucky to have quite a large house on today’s standards and both of my children have bedrooms big enough to fit double beds.  My son’s room is the smallest at 3 /14 m by 3 3/4 m,  At times I don’t think they know how lucky they are to have such spacious rooms. The first room we have started to tackle… View Post

Cath Kidston. Brightens my life. The pretty quirky designs just make me smile.  It is so hard to believe how a brand can make me feel this way. I think it’s very fair to say the weather has been a little grim these past few weeks in the UK. We haven’t exactly had a bright and cheery start to the year.  The country as a whole has been rained down on by repeated rain storms. Day after day the start of the year saw nothing but rain and very grey skies.  Sadly some parts of the country really have been… View Post
