Cosy Christmas by candlelight.

Hey, guess what, I’m going to talk about candles again! Some may say I’m a stuck record, but with the days so dull at the moment, we just have wetness and gale force winds here in Cornwall, none of the white wonderland magic I’ve seen further up country, life definitely requires some brightening up. I…

O Christmas Tree…

I’d planned on waiting until this weekend to get our tree, it felt like it was too soon, but with the weather being so questionable at the moment we (well more like I) decided to take advantage of the patches of sunshine on last Saturday. Typically the moment we committed (told the girls what was…

O Star of wonder, star of night…

My Autumnal wreath came to an end last week and it was time to replace it with something a little more Christmassy. I had this metal star, bought from Hobbycraft, in my box of tricks and a lovely lady had just dropped off a bag of beautiful Eucalyptus for me, she answered my plea on a local…

Interior Fantasies.

If you had a beautiful, large, empty house and the freedom to create what ever you wanted, what do you think you’d come up with? I had a dream last night that I owned a French Chateau (no doubt brought on by watching Escape to the Chateau, which I totally love, does anyone else watch it?) Most…

Visit Cornwall. A guide, according to my Instagram.

Recently one of my followers asked me for some suggestions of nice places in Cornwall to visit whilst on their holiday, this is something I get asked quite often, so I thought I’d write about it here. My mind started to whirl with all the wonderful places in my home county and I wondered how…

Mollie Makes Feature.

It’s been a bit of a crappy week this one, but I don’t want to go into that. Instead here’s a little bit of yay me-ness! I just made that a word, ok! Those that follow me on Facebook and Instagram may have seen me mention that the rather fabulous Mollie Makes asked me to feature in their magazine, actually I…

Hello lovely people…

Oh look, it’s been a while, again! We’ve been busy being ill, multiple ailments one after other and then there was half term, which I was dreading as I’ve been so exhausted, but we slowed everything down, made very few plans and actually it was just what we all needed. We stayed home a lot,…

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…

This .com shit ain’t working.

I’ve been doing some soul searching recently, I’ve realised certain things aren’t making me as happy as I would like them to and the balance in my life is very much off. When I started this blog it was because I enjoyed sharing things I had achieved with you lovely people, but somewhere along the…

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…

Take each day.

Things have been very unbalanced between this pair for quite some time, five minutes wouldn’t pass without someone screaming bloody murder, snatching and shrieking, my nerves and patience up and walked weeks back, months if I’m being really honest and I’m sorry to say it wasn’t renewed when a fresh day came. Two minutes into…

Sunshine lift my spirits…

The sunshine is lifting my mood and I’m sat here marvelling at how close we are to such a huge change to the way we live. Not so long ago behind this chair was the boundary of our little indoor home world and now more than just the promise of a room to spread ourselves into, to relax…
