Something that most parents can relate to is finding time. There is no time machine, nor is there a time shop where we can go and buy the time so so desperately need to get everything done in a day (if someone could invent these, it would be great!). So, I find myself writing a lot about finding time, to do the things that we enjoy doing as a family, to support the girls in their learning as they grow up and to make memories with them. I constantly thinking, what we can streamline? Where can we multi task? And how we can really make those precious pockets of time work harder for us?Continue reading
As we head face first into December, it’s time to think about winter decor ideas and how we can cosy up the house with the addition of some home accessories. It’s not just the Christmas tree that makes the home feel cosy, it’s the addition of textures, tones, smells and soft subtle lighting that will really help take your home from autumnal to winter wonderland.Continue reading
A bit of a motto this year for me is to spend more time doing the things I love and less doing those things I hate. Now that we are edging ever closer to the year end, I do feel that I have certainly made a huge dent in achieving this.
I wrote a while ago about how I was struggling to control my time, now that I’m my own boss.

Everyone has different plates spinning, so I can’t give you a definitive recipe, but I can share those things that I adopted that set me up on the right path:Continue reading
Recently I was very lucky to have a blogging friend pick me for a gifting challenge she was working on with ao.com. With Christmas just around the corner, the lovely Gaby, from Life in Eight, was asked to nominate a fellow blogger (me) to receive a surprise gift and in return they (that’s me!) would get to select and send a surprise gift back. How could I resist!Continue reading
Well the cold is creeping in and we’ve even had our first frosty morning… And well, could I start any monthly round up without saying “I can’t believe it’s November already”?! Nothing quite says November like dark mornings and evenings, red frost biten hands and using your Tesco clubcard as an ice scraper on the car windscreen. Autumn was fleeting and winter has truly arrived!
October was yet another fly by month, but I like to round up our goings on, to give myself something to look back on when I’m old.Continue reading
