Advent begins.

There’s nothing like a little crafty project to break the blog block, hi, remember me? Possibly not, it’s been a rather long time, again! Needless to say life is CRAZY busy right now, but I am really excited to share the Advent Calendar I’ve put together for the girls this year. It’s been a relatively…

Favourite Things Weekly (or not so weekly!)

I haven’t done a Favourite Things Weekly in a while, maybe I should drop the ‘Weekly’ then I need not make any apology!

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…
