Pistyll Rhaeadr Waterfall – Wales

In April last year we spent a week in Wales with friends and I don’t think I ever really shared anything about it because I wanted a proper holiday from work and blogging. Also Arlo was pretty sick for the whole week as it turned out he’d caught a parasitic bug from a petting farm (along with a load of…

Standen House National Trust Sussex

Standen House National Trust [Days Out]

A couple of weekends ago when we were having that weirdly hot spell that just didn’t feel right for a February in England we headed out to Standen House, one of the National Trust properties in West Sussex to make use of our National Trust family membership. Standen House is a few minutes drive from East Grinstead and sits in…

Interiors: Making Small Living Rooms More Functional

Not all of us are fortunate enough to have a large house where we can make the most out of the living space without making the place look crammed. If you would like to preserve your floor space, so your kids can do some crafts, puzzles or you can play some board games, and still have everything you need it…

World Book Day 2019

Sunday Scrapbook – World Book Day & Spa Days

It’s been a pretty disjointed week for us, I think it rained pretty much every day too! I worked most of the week apart from Tuesday when I headed off to meet Donna for a spa day she’d invited me on and I am so glad I did! We had a lovely morning chilling out in the sun room chatting…

6 things i just don't 'GET'

#Saturday6 – 6 things I just don’t GET

There are lots of things in life I feel passionate about, love to talk about or read about for ages… but similarly there are some things I just can’t bring myself to care about at all. I know we’re all different (thank god – imagine how dull life would be if we were all clones and felt the same about…

Making a Capsule Wardrobe Work

Since summer ended I have been managing (just about) with a capsule wardrobe. I found it so much easier to think about and plan autumnal outfits and feel like 6 months is a decent amount of time to try and make it work – and it does I think! I moved everything that I wanted into my wardrobe and hung it up – including T shirts that would normally live folded in a drawer. My current capsule wardrobe consists of: 

Wanderlust: Italy

Italy has so much to offer as a holiday destination from the long Mediterranean coast line to the historic cities. I think I could happily plan a holiday a year there for the next five years! But for now here are the areas that are top of my list. The first is Venice purely because it is so unique.  The…

Lighthouse Clothing review

Lighthouse Clothing – Perfect for Adventuring+ Giveaway!

I’m pretty pleased that last weeks few days of warm sunshine were a bit of a blip and that we’re back to the normal late winter weather of showers and overcast skies because it feels right for this time of year! As a family we get out and about whatever the weather, pretty much because if we waited for warm…

eco friendly and sustainable products to try

Eco Friendly & Sustainable Products To Try

I think trying to be more eco-friendly is on so many people’s minds at the moment and rightly so. Brands and businesses are sharing how they’re being more sustainable, with many trying to change their packaging as well as their products. There are so many ways that we can all start to make little changes around the home and in…

Me and Mine February 19

Our family photos were taken at the weekend, and although the two may look the same they are slightly different! The originals are a lot wonkier because we had to use a pile of logs to balance the camera on but I like them and they remind me of a lovely family day out.   This month I have been…

Scrapbook Loves Feb 19

February is finally over! Even though it’s the shortest month it always seems to drag a bit for me! I though we’d done a whole lot of nothing but actually we’ve been pretty busy really! Here’s my monthly round up of what I’ve done/read/seen etc!   Read I read seven books in February. Three of them had a definite ‘theme’…
