Thirty Five and how I feel about it.

A few days ago I turned thirty five. It’s weird because I still don’t really *feel* like an adult yet I most definitely am one. I mean 35 is normally a whole new age bracket to tick on forms right? If I got pregnant now I’d be a ‘geriatric’ mum (no plans to though!) I also think I look my…

All about me in Autumn

So this was originally the ‘October Blogging tag’ or something along those lines, so I’ve changed any mention of October to Autumn and am rebelling and posting this in November. I love reading things like this on other blogs as a great way to find out about the blogger, so if you’re new to Scrapbook Blog and don’t know much…

If Money were no Object, this is what I’d change

If I won a substantial amount of money somehow these are the five small changes I would make… Every day I would wear new knickers, and if it was a sock-wearing sort of day new socks too. There is nothing quite like the feeling of pulling on new underwear! I appreciate this is fairly wasteful in the grand scheme of…

Is 18 goals too many? Yes, possibly. Probably in fact. So I am looking at these very much as potential aims, things to work towards, not things to stick to like a regime.

I Quit my Job

I was doing one management shift a week and then helping out on the odd shift when needed, to cover holidays or…

Bedtime Shenanigans

A few weeks ago Sarah at Boo, Roo & Tigger too tagged me in the Bedtime post (here’s hers, she’s a cold side of the pillow seeker like me!) and sometimes I love to have a set list of Q’s to answer, it means I can write something fun without too much thought!  So here goes…

Reflecting on a year of being a mum of two, or “for …

I’ve been a ‘mother of two’ for just over a year now, and amazingly have managed to keep everyone alive, health(ish) and happy (mostly). I can’t say it’s been a breeze, because some days it’s been really bloody difficult. My top three sentences in the last year have been:
