Well this week has been such a busy one. I’ve been working away at my new freelance work, dealing with appointments and admin for our house sale, never mind trying to fit blogging in! Dan has got next week off work, which I’m really looking forward to, although I will have to try to get lots of work done too. Let’s see what I’ve been loving this week.   Birthday shopping for our new home I mentioned in last week’s…

Worrying about the future: don’t let life pass you by

Worrying about the future - don't let life pass you by

Something I’ve always been since a young age is a terrible worrier. It’s just in my nature. As the years have gone by, it’s really taken it’s toll on me. I’ve felt physically ill and lay awake so many nights unable to sleep because of the stress. Worrying about the future has been a constant feature in my mind, and it’s something I’ve been trying hard to reduce over the last few years. Not long ago, I was reading┬áThe Weirdest…

The thought of yorkshire puddings, roast potatoes and roast vegetables is a happy one! Let’s see what other things I’ve been loving this week.   Birthday shopping It’s my birthday at the end of the month and my Mum keeps asking what I would like for it. I’ve been…

Printiki photos: updating the memories in our home

Printiki photos

To me, having photos around the house really turns a house into a home. I love to personalise our home with photos that remind me of wonderful memories. As I mentioned in last week’s catch up post, printing off photos is something I hardly do anymore. I’ve been noticing for quite some time that the photos in most of our frames are pretty old now. It’s such a shame to have so many memories just sat on my computer screen…

Let’s see what I’ve been loving this week.   Date night We went through a phase of eating out quite often, but we haven’t been out for dinner much at all recently. On Monday, we visited our local Miller and Carter restaurant and…

1 year blog birthday

1 year blog birthday

I can’t believe I’ve reached my 1 year blog birthday already. I’ve now been blogging for over a year. Actually, make that well over a year. Possibly 2 years in fact. But the first year was spent setting up a blog, figuring out designs, finding my blogging voice and just getting to grips with it all. I genuinely don’t understand all you girls and guys who start your blog and start publishing lots of fabulous content straight away, promoting all…

Zaful review: trying out the super cheap clothing site

Zaful review

Seeing various bloggers and Instagrammers featuring clothing from Zaful has made me curious about the brand.

When I got asked to write an honest Zaful review post*, I decided it would be an interesting feature for this blog. Let’s see how I got on! Wanting…

I feel like this week marks something of a real change. We’ve gone from a Monday full of blue skies and hot weather, to a cold drizzly Sunday. From wearing a bikini at the start of the week to having to borrow one of my Mum’s big winter coats on Friday evening so I could walk the dog without shivering! I can see why some people say that the start of September feels like the start of a new year.…
