For the greater good.

I’m on a mission to reduce our ‘stuff’ again, and that means saying goodbye to pieces I love, but rarely use.  The initial decisions can be hard, but I find more often than not I don’t miss those things once they’re gone.  Naturally the holidays has led to the house being quite chaotic, the expected…

Pancakes galore!

Evening all, so how many pancakes have you eaten today? I was aiming for none (supposed to be on the health wagon) but have so far consumed 4, whoops! The girls have never been that taken with the traditional pancake, I’m a huge fan of sugar and lemon on a thin pancake, pure and simple,…

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…

Home is where my heart is. Small house, big changes.

  I’ve been feeling a little lacking of late, lacking enthusiasm and inspiration, lacking motivation and excitement. My mind has been rather preoccupied with thoughts that have been stressful and full of possible but realistically false hope. A little while ago we decided we would look into the costs of extending. I am stuck in a love/…

Working on the Hygge

Last night we had an unexpected power cut that lasted until the morning. Slight panic set in as I was faced with a phone that only had 2% battery and an evening of no TV/ internet, I felt at a loss. But in fact I had such a beautiful night with my husband, once he…
