The Blog Plans…After Uni

As I move into my final few weeks of my Open University course, it’s fair to say that my attention is largely being diverted that way. So firstly I’d ask, please do bear with me. I will still be sharing and posting here, I will still be popping up on social media, but it may just not be quite as often. Though if you check out my Instastories, you’ll probably see streams of me studying there, so yes, that’s what I’ll be up to and where you can find me. All being well, I’ll complete my degree mid-May, and then Read more >

Do You Read Or Are You A Reader?

Do you read or are you a reader? I think there’s a difference, you see. My Husband reads, whereas I am a reader. I am a reader. I have to have a book on the go at all times. I often have the book near me. I love walking into a bookshop and can rarely pass one without going in for a little browse. I am familiar with a huge amount of authors, and will often have a good idea of the newest titles, the book that everyone is talking about. If I have a birthday coming up, I am Read more >


The Best Things About Nephews

The best things about nephews (or nieces for that matter, I simply don’t have any) has got to be that balance of complete love with very little responsibility. It’s perfect! I am fortunate enough to have two nephews, two brilliant nephews. Nope, no bias here at all. I have been there to watch them grow and develop, having seen them pretty much every week of their lives. My eldest nephew, now 21, was around eighteen months old when I first met him, as I started dating the Husband. He was the first grandchild, the first nephew, the first son, so Read more >

Siblings March 2018

These two are too close this month, just too close! I think it’s a combination of a few things, from awful weather weekends keeping us inside a bit more than usual, the excitement of our upcoming holiday and Little Man being poorly a couple of times. All of these things together mean that their energy levels are high and their desire to be as close as they physically can to one another has got up a notch. Boo hates it when Little Man is ill and counts down the moments until they can play and cuddle together again. And given Read more >

A One-Off Happy Mail Sign Up

I’m quite excited about this month’s Bring Back Paper activity, as it’s something I haven’t run for a while, but I remember it being very popular the last time that I did it. As regular readers will know, I am all about snail mail. I love penning handwritten letters and I think there’s something quite special about receiving a little happy mail. And then there’s the fact that it’s a great excuse to accumulate lots of pretty stationery! Whilst so many of us love to get happy mail, some pretty snail mail in amongst junk mail and bills, I realise Read more >


10 Ways to Enjoy the Countdown to a Disney World Holiday

10 Ways to Enjoy the Countdown to a Disney World Holiday

As regular readers will know, we are very excited here as we’re counting down to our first family Disney World holiday. We booked it last May and we now have less than three months to go, with the anticipation heightening weekly. With a Disney World holiday, a lot of the fun is about the planning, preparations and countdown. I know that you can just book it, forget about it and then pack your cases and you’re off, but I think you’d be really missing out! We are all thoroughly enjoying the build up to the break, and for me it’s Read more >

The Bring Back Paper Gift Box – I Need Your Help!

I have had an idea for a while now to offer a Bring Back Paper Gift Box. It does sound like a box I’d be very happy to receive, and I know from some of your comments that I am not alone. So I have started to outline a few plans for this, and whilst it is in the early stages I would like to take the opportunity to do a little market research with you before I get any further. The Bring Back Paper box would be an indulgent box for paper lovers, a package of delights to enjoy Read more >


Wanting To Get Outside In My Garden Again!

I feel like this has been a long winter. A long, long winter. And given that winter is my least favourite season, I want it to end now. I am itching to get out into the garden again. I am definitely a fair weather gardener, I like to potter about out there when it warms up and then there’s nothing nicer than lounging about on my deck reading a book when it’s really hot. I love the sunshine. As soon as I do start spending time out there, I have something of a list of tasks that I need to Read more >


Open University: Over Halfway Through My Final Year!

I am getting there, folks. The end is in sight. I am now over halfway through my final year with the Open University. This time in three months, I will be all done. And I’ll be in Disney World, which does strike me as a nice way to celebrate! So what’s happening? On my level 1 AA100 module, I have now had four assignments marked and returned to me, and I’m happy with all of them. I actually only need 40% on these as I simply need to get a pass, but I am considerably above that so I am Read more >
