I’m a little late this month talking about the things I loved last month but life just took over. It was a strange month with ups and downs. Fun times out to hospital stays and all the emotions that come with that. Meals Out Early this month I went for a meal at Rub Smokehouse. Oh my, it was delicious!  I’m loving being back in Birmingham and all the fantastic places to eat that I now find on my doorstep. There really are some great places here in Bormingham and the West Midlands. I hoping to get some reviews up… 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. One Friday night, the Rock and roll person in me came out and sorted my make up. I sure know how to live. I’m loving this sink unit and wish I’d done this earlier. The modern look of it really has changed the bathroom giving it a very modern feel. It’s also given me a great organisation answer for my make up. Now… View Post

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

The Day Job What can I say about those cute painted wooden animals?  By day I own and run an independent toy shop. When we moved back to The Midlands not only did I have a house move to contend with along with not feeling well but I also had a business to relocate. As well as running an online business I also had a shop that needed to be moved too. It took some time to find premises here in the right location and at the right price. After much searching we found ourselves a new shop. At the… View Post

A few weeks ago I was lucky enough to have a weekend away in North Wales and took a trip to the summit of the Great Orme overlooking Llandudno.  Having lived in Wales for 3 years until recently and having always taken holidays there my whole life I was pleased to go back and visit somewhere I really love.  I have been lucky enough to have visited this area of North Wales before and always find the scenery so stunning. We stayed over night in Conwy and traveled a few miles the next day over the estuary to Llandudno.  Llandudno… View Post
