Theres so much that Paul and I want to get done around the house, sadly though as money doesn’t grow on trees we will have to bide our time with the DIY project list and learn to live with the cloudy windows and eighties style kitchen for the time being.

I don’t think that watching back to back episodes of My Dream Home really helps the situation as the more opportunity for development we see the more we find ourselves discussing ‘what could be’ in our own home.

It’s Friday yet again and of course time to list my #LittleLoves. It’s been yet another busy week for Paul and I, we have done so much that it’s all a bit of a blur really.

The kids have finally finished both school and nursery for the Christmas holidays and we can finally start to wind down or should I say rev up for Christmas. Let’s hope now that we have some time together we can relax!

As always at bedtime, here are our two little ones sharing a snuggle before settling down to sleep in their own beds which will also move into new rooms in the near future.… Read more from this post

It’s been an action packed week with very little time to sit back and to do much of anything other than to chase our own tails. Despite being ridiculously busy I will do my very best to find a few #LittleLoves from the past seven days or so to share with you.

Whilst at the Blog On conference back in September I had the pleasure of meeting a rather lovely lady named Angela who blogs over at www.adventuresinwebsterland.com

I already followed and read Angela’s blog prior to meeting up at the conference but actually meeting Angela seemed to change things.… Read more from this post

Welcome to this weeks #LittleLoves post, once again I am late to the party due to a rather poorly little E and a late bar shift. However, I am here and I have once again listed the little things which have struck me as particularly lovely this week.

Christmas is in the air and also in the post so it seems as I received the Christmas edition of the ‘Ideal Home‘ magazine this week. I stuck the kettle on, grabbed a brew and had a good flick through all their festive ideas which were of course well out of my price range but still fairly inspiring.… Read more from this post
