Bullet Journal Prompts for Bookworms

Today I am sharing a few ideas that connect two of my favourite papery things, bullet journals and books! I have been thinking up a few bullet journal prompts for bookworms. I love putting together new bullet journal collections, some that are entirely practical and useful, others that are simply fun to do. These are a bit of a mix between the two. If you aren’t a big reader, then they aren’t likely to be remotely useful, but to those of us who often have our noses in a book, or spend far too much time browsing book shops, there Read more >


Creating a Rose Garden

I adore roses, they are my favourite of all plants and as such, I have a fair few in my garden. And by a fair few, I mean at least twenty at last count, and I may have overlooked one or two. I must get back out and check! As if I need more, I now have a plan to put more in. I am excited! I have a little bed near the back of the garden that has yet to be given a purpose that I am happy with. It’s been a bed for vegetables, a bed for the Read more >

I Fear I Might Burst!

I fear I might burst. We leave for Disney World in a few days time. A holiday that we have been counting down to for twelve months. Our tickets have been printed. I have a packing list in progress. I have sent over our resort room request. We’ve ordered our food for our Be Our Guest reservations. And you would not believe the amount of times I have checked and moved around our Fast Passes! The kids are excited. Very excited. I am not sure how well the day before we fly will go. We need to pack, drop the guinea Read more >


Siblings May 2018

We have actually had a little sunshine this month. Not much, but enough to get out and enjoy the garden and have a few days out. Little Man and Boo are like chalk and cheese with most things, and the sunshine is no different. Boo loves the warmer weather, sees it as a chance to be outside all the time, invariably running around exploring everywhere. She’s always been the same, full of energy and curiosity. Little Man is more of an indoors, sedate kinda person! He’ll go out, then get bored quickly and retreat back inside, to Lego, Star Wars Read more >


‘Grow’ with the Aviva Community Fund

‘In association with the Aviva Community Fund’ Today I’m happy to be sharing news about a local volunteer initiative, who were recently awarded by the Aviva Community Fund. ‘Grow’ applied for funding from the Aviva Community Fund last year and were fortunate to be chosen as one of the winners, receiving an award of up to £25,000. Grow, is a project run by the 10:10 Foundation, a volunteer group with projects focused on tackling climate change at a community level, in the UK. After they heard they were successful in their application for funding, I got in touch with Daniel Jones, Read more >

And It Is Over! #OpenUniversity

It’s all over. My Open University degree is now complete. I have submitted my final assignments, End Of Module Assessments for both of the modules I have been doing this year. I have submitted them a little early, as we’ll be away when the deadline rolls round, so I needed to ensure I had got these in – there are no extensions on these! It doesn’t feel quite real yet. I’ve yet to switch off from it all, the EMAs still swimming about in my head. I keep waiting for that euphoric feeling to hit, or even a wave of Read more >


To Combat The Holiday Blues…

This month we are going to be off on a holiday that we have excitedly been counting down to for a year, a whole year. And when I say counting down, I do mean that literally as we have a countdown running in the kitchen that Boo updates daily.The anticipation and build up to this one has been huge, and I just know that once we are there it will absolutely fly by. Which is why my attention has now turned to booking holidays, mini-breaks and day trips for when we return, things to look forward to when the Disney Read more >


GardenSite Garden Bench Review & Competition

It’s been a little while since I talked about the garden. This is no doubt because IT HAS BEEN THE LONGEST WINTER EVER!!! But, I am hopeful that spring is now emerging as we have had a handful of warmer sunnier days, which has meant that we have managed to spruce up a little area of the garden with its newest addition, a lovely garden bench thanks to the folks over at GardenSite. GardenSite has over 12,000 home and garden products available to buy online, from greenhouses to ponds, and from swing sets to planters, they have a huge range Read more >


Today’s the SSE Women’s FA Cup Final!

Today is the SSE Women’s FA Cup final, will you be watching? It kicks off today at 5.30pm and you can tune in live on BBC1 to follow the action at Wembley. A record breaking audience is expected to attend, it’ll be a great family day out. It should be interesting as this year sees a repeat of the 2016 final with Arsenal Women taking on Chelsea Ladies. Will Chelsea turn the tables and prove to be victorious this time round? We will soon see! Since my daughter went along to SSE Wildcats sessions last year, she has taken much Read more >

Send Some Snail Mail This Month! #BringBackPaper

This month, I’d love to encourage more people to send out some snail mail, by running a little #BringBackPaper challenge. It’s such a simple thing to do, and I absolutely believe that it cheers up the recipient and is a fun thing for the sender to do. I know, I know, I do go on about this, but just try it and you’ll see why. OK, so you’ve read this far and you’re thinking, ‘yes, this would be a nice thing to do….but who do I write to?’ Good question. Fortunately, it’s one that I can help with! – send Read more >


What’s Next? – So Many Possibilities

I should be finishing with my Open University degree in the next few weeks. I have drafts of my two End of Module Assessments, so I’ll revisit those again next week and work on final revisions before sending them in. My studying has really taken up a lot of my time and thoughts over recent weeks and months, so whilst it’ll be good to be free of it, I think I’ll find it strange and will miss it. Then as we’re off to Disney World soon, I’ll also be finished with all of the planning around that, and there has Read more >
