A Christmas Gift Guide with a Difference.

Giving a gift can be a wonderful experience, that buzz when you know you’ve found just the thing for that particular person, the time taken to wrap it up beautifully, the anticipation of handing it over. However, finding the right gift can also be rather stressful and headache inducing, especially for that person (usually a…

What do I do it all for?

Today has got me thinking, what do I do it all for? All this stuff I’m mixed up in, fingers in lots of pies… A few years ago we decided we wanted some babies, so we did that. I planned on staying at home with them for as long as I could, I didn’t really…

Small Space Garden Ideas – Table Top Edible Bowl.

It’s no secret that I’m in love with my garden, those that follow me on Instagram and watch my stories will have seen that it features heavily in our daily life. This said, it’s a relatively recent love affair, which intensified when we spent some time last year having a bit of an overhaul. You…

Easter Party.

We’re off up to Wales tomorrow morning, to visit family and join in with my cousin’s birthday celebrations. This means we’re away on Easter Sunday and Nancy was a little concerned that the Easter Bunny wouldn’t know our temporary address, she’s even written to him, explaining the situation! I’ve reasured her that that’s one clever…

All the kinds of Mother.

Some of us are Mothers through choice, some of us are Mothers by accident. Some of us would love to be a Mother, but not yet, some of us long to be a Mother, but things don’t always work out like that. Some of us have plans, but being a Mother isn’t one of them….

Tiptoe Craft Desk Update.

The craft corner is perhaps the most used area of the house, certainly by the girls that is. If we had to get rid of every single toy, as long as the supply cupboard was well stocked, I’m not sure Nancy and Eula would be all that concerned, it’s a very industrious corner, a constant…

Dinosaurs, cake and crying.

Children are such oddities aren’t they, you provide them with the means to have a  totally fab day, all the things they love, but they sabotage it with their peculiar ways. Today is Eula’s 3rd birthday, i’m sure if you asked her she will tell you she’s had a great day, I will look back…

Life goes on.

Hello my lovelies, it’s been a bit of a while, again! Since I last did some writing here I’ve turned another year older and I do actually feel a tiny little bit wiser! I’ve decided to try and not sweat the small stuff, each day I need to think about all the wonderful things I have in…

Dotcom Gift Shop parcel of treats.

It’s always lovely to get a knock on the door and be handed a big parcel of wonderful treats, lately the only things that seem to arrive at our house are wooden floor samples and bills, but today is an exception. The lovely people at Dotcom Gift Shop have sent the girls some wonderful Summer…

A place to play, Penrice Birth Centre.

The rejuvenation project at Penrice is an ongoing thing, done on voluntary time and so it isn’t always possible to just bosh out an idea, crack on and get it done and dusted as quickly as we’d all like, it takes time, discussions, group decisions…and a lot of patience, I’m not very good at this patience thing, you may…

Half term hang out.

It’s half term and the week has been long and short and lovely and irksome all in one. I thought I’d stop by quickly and let you know what we’ve been up to. I’m sorry this is just a quick half update but I’m feeling quite distracted from blogging at the moment and I’m just…
