LOVE STATIONERY

After visiting Charlotte at the weekend and sleeping in her wonderful studio space, I am totally inspired and excited to move back into mine. My course starts in just a few weeks, and as many of the lovely ladies on Instagram have said, it’s the perfect excuse to buy lots of pretty stationery. First on […]

LIFE LATELY

Goodness life is busy at the moment. That and lack of internet at home means I feel I am neglecting this little space of mine. Posts are being written when I can snatch a few minutes on a lunch break or stay a little late after work. But life goes on and is generally captured […]

GROWING OLD IS MANDATORY GROWING UP IS OPTIONAL!

Today’s the day. I’m hopefully sat inside a Romany gypsy wagon right now, twinkly lights overhead, sipping on sparkles and blowing out candles. I’ll let you know what 30 feels like when I get home. I expect I shall feel no different. Perhaps a little relieved that I can stop counting down the days left […]

ADVENTURES IN DREAMLAND

It’s almost two weeks since I spent the weekend with lovely Miss Charlotte. She is truly one of my favourite people in life and to think! We met through blogging. I caught the train late Friday evening to her lovely little town house in Kent. We stayed up far too late, drinking tea, talking friendships […]

30 THINGS IN 30 YEARS

I had a wonderful birthday and I promise to share more soon. I even managed to work out how to use iMovie on my birthday present, so have a little vlog for you. But for now I thought I would share some pearls of wisdom. Things I’d tell myself in my teens and early twenties. […]

PLAYING TOURIST IN LONDON

It’s been over a week since mother bear and I were playing tourists in London. Strolling down the Southbank, coffees in hand, often heard uttering the words ‘the UK has great history’. Mum tripping up the curb, nearly landing herself in hospital before we’d even reached the hotel. Luckily her back pack saved the day […]

HOUGHTON MILL ROSE LEMONADE AND ATTEMPING SWISS ROLLS

On Saturday I made last minute plans with Samantha to visit Houghton Mill. I packed up the car with my picnic blanket, tea filled Thermos flask and National Trust membership, just as my mother would. I can’t work out whether I’m turning into a Grandma or I’m just very British. I filmed a short vlog […]

RECIPE | AVOCADO AND STRAWBERRY SALAD WITH A HONEY AND LIME DRESSING

The sun is shining and I can finally contemplate putting the slow cooker away. I’ve started training for my Olympic triathlon too, which coincides with trying to shift some of my flabby bits. If you need to get some more protein in your diet, which I’m struggling to do at the moment, I don’t think […]

Post card swap 2014

If you’ve been here a little while, then you’ll know that for the past few years I have run a postcard swap. There are slightly more of you out there this time and I hope lots of you will want to take part. I will split everyone up into groups of 5 – 8. I […]

Recipe | Lavender Scones

I love the heady, floral fragrance of lavender. My garden is full of it. The buzz of the bumble bees that lavender attracts, is one of my favourite sounds of the summer. When Ben bit into one of these, he lovingly declared ‘it tastes like Grandma’. Well I think Grandma tastes damn good. I’ll eat […]
