My Monday Quote – when less is not more!


  I guess its a good sign that I have spent every spare moment this weekend planting. It was a busy weekend anyway with arrangements which is a good job given that at least 15 more pots have been added to our tiny garden. Clearly my house rule of less is more,  has been completely ignored in the garden ha!       Thank you Becky for hosting!   Thank you Mac for hosting!.. Read More

My Random Five!


Hello, Given that I have been missing for a little while, my five this week are a random selection of what we have been up to in the interim. One In April we went to Edinburgh to celebrate Himself’s birthday. As predicted, I packed all the wrong clothes and shivered my way through the weekend. Do not be fooled by the beautiful blue sky, it was bitterly cold. Despite the snow (yes really),.. Read More

My Captured Moment!

My Captured

Given that My Captured Moment is one of my favourite link ups, I guess there is no better way to begin to ease myself back into regular posting. Recently, we went to Edinburgh for the weekend.

Well I really didn’t mean to take a break. I guess the less cosy side of real life got in the way for a little while. It is clear that when I feel life is dealing constant curve balls, I find it difficult to write words. Maybe, this is because this is my ‘happy space’ and anyway, I reckon nobody wants to read my ‘woe is me’ drivel. However, I do owe you.. Read More

I have  decided to cling to the hope that this storm will not only pass, but it has been sent for a number of reasons. Maybe I had become complacent and there are a number of things I need to be reminded of; For example, good.. Read More

Five on Friday – Paris!


I am more pleased than usual to see Friday this week. For a number of reasons it has been a very strange week for me, but lets not dwell on that! I am continuing my Paris update for my Five on Friday this week because with the exception of Disney on Ice, I have not taken any other photographs.

We absolutely love all things Disney, so when we heard that  Disney on Ice  was coming to Liverpool, the youngest and I were beside ourselves with excitement. We went to see it last night at the Liverpool Echo Arena. It was brilliant! We stumbled across Minnie and Mickey having their pictures taken. I grabbed gently cajoled, the youngest and dragged guided her to the queue. Now, contrary to how it might have looked, she was very.. Read More

My Captured Moment – The Princess edition!

My Captured

  I have changed My Captured Moment this week because we went to see Disney On Ice last night –  it was brilliant! We saw Minnie and Mickey beforehand and, there were lots of little ones dressed up. It took me right back to when the youngest was little – when Disney princesses were her world! She wore her dressing up clothes at some point, most days. However, along with the outfit, she often..
