If you’ve followed by blog since the start, you’ll know that a bit of a past time for me is making up little printables and various bits and pieces. I vowed to share these with you regularly and I’ve got some catching up to do! I’ve done a meal planner in the past, which is still available to download here if you want a more colourful option. However, I’ve simplified the design to be more in keeping with our kitchen now and I thought I would share this with you.Continue reading
Ok, so there may only be 2 weeks of the summer holidays left in Scotland, but I set myself a challenge of finishing our living room and I’m holding myself to it (even if it does mean cheating a little a borrowing the English holiday to qualify it!). This is the last room in our house to be tackled (I won’t say ‘finish’, as you know by now how I feel with regards to every other room only being 95% there!). This room has served us well since we moved in 3 years ago. It has been our storage room for our kitchen, new sofas and we even used a corner of it as a sitting area when the kitchen got knocked through into the dining room to make a large open plan family room. But it’s time to throw open the curtains, clear the clutter and get this space complete (or at least 95% of it!).Continue reading
Here is my quick and easy microwave cheese sauce recipe
I love cheese sauce… So it goes without saying that my favourite dish is Mac & Cheese! Ever since I was little I just loved it! My mum would even make me my own cheese sauce lasange when I was little (hate mince!) So it was one of the dishes I missed when I left home. Anytime I attempt to make it, It always end up lumpy and I have to get the hand blender out to save the day. Ofcourse the one thing you try to achieve when cooking for a family is quick meals and to use the least amount of dishes!Continue reading
Having it all is something I’ve judged myself on for many years since we had children. First of all, nothing can prepare you for starting a family and all that comes with it. If anyone told me the drastic changes that lay ahead, I wouldn’t have believed them. Maybe it is just me, but I do look at my life pre children and it is like chalk and cheese. I was so organised… I didn’t need a notepad for meetings, I could remember it verbatim. The house was like a show house. I would deep clean it every other night (extreme much?!) I would give Monica Geller a run for her money. Then we had children.Continue reading

Each month we do a feature of a Blogger room.. Whether it’s a recent make over or just a gorgeous space and this month we have a rather stunning rustic country room from Neve (We The Parents). I’m sure you’ll agree it is a glorious space and has given me a few ideas about using greenery as finishing touches to our own kitchen…Continue reading
