And don’t you agree that Christmas time is the most magical of all? Fortunately for us, we were given the opportunity to have the magic start early for my little girls, as they were cordially invited by none other than Father Christmas himself, to come visit him at his home in Lapland UK, (naturally!), and to assist his elves in making sure the toys were ready for all the little girls and boys who have been good this year. I believe in magic! A few mornings ago, Holly (6) and Ella (3) ventured down the stairs to find the most beautiful wax-sealed invitations… View Post

The possibilities seem truly endless when designing a kitchen, or indeed any room, of your dreams, and as long as you have the imagination, the drive and the hefty sized wallet, you can pretty much get anything your heart desires. Well, we had the first two of the above, in that we were most definitely driven to overhaul and update the downstairs living space, and we certainly had the imagination and delusions of grandeur (thank you Pinterest!), but unfortunately our wallets were not that full so we had to make do with the footprint space we already had, and many things, such… View Post

So. It turns out that I’ve had a trip to New York booked since January this year! Unbeknownst to me. Though for good reason I might add. My wonderful amazing husband surprised me a few weeks ago on the morning of my 40th birthday, with tickets for a four night trip to New York, and a night on Broadway to see Wicked – The Musical, which is something I’ve wanted to see for years.

I absolutely love wearing nail varnish and having pretty nails. It makes me happy and puts a smile on my face. And when they’re all made up, I feel like a new woman, who would quite happily become royalty (a girl can wish, right?), just so that I could wave them elegantly at everyone as I passed them by. Through the years, all forty of them now (!), I’ve always said my nails have been most probably the best part of my body!  When other parts give me cause to hide away under long or baggy layers, my nails have always been something… View Post

This month has been a bit hectic to say the least. October is regarded to as ‘birthday month’ in our household, and as such is a whole mixture of joy, happiness, stress, depression, and despair depending on the age being celebrated. Or perhaps commiserated in some cases! It all kicks off on the 7th with Holly’s birthday, then it’s my Dad’s on the 11th, followed my mine on the 17th and lastly my Mum’s on the 20th. Even my lovely late Grandma’s was also on the 15th!! So as you can see, it’s pretty darned busy! And generally expensive too… View Post
