What a funny month May is, it feels like we have only just finished the Easter holidays and here we are with another couple of bank holidays thrown in for good measure. Even better for me is that my kids have an inset and polling day so I get loads of family time this month. […]
I just can’t believe how fast these months are flying by. We are in April already, the daffodils and hyacinths are dying off as they make way for roses and geraniums. I can’t wait for the summer to arrive, to potter in my garden while the radio plays, the hens forage and the kids play. […]

I’ve got a little confession to make…. I totally forgot about this until our lovely editor Mari came chasing me up yesterday. I know that life is good for me right now as I rarely forget anything, I’m always the queen of organised but just recently I have been so busy just getting out […]
I’m really thrilled to have been asked by Michelle to job share her monthly round ups for the Positively Inspirational Round-up’s.

I’m pleased to report we are now settled in our new […]
What a scorching few weeks we have had, here in the UK. Some days have even been a little too hot for me, but I’m not complaining as it is very nice to have a decent summer for a change. The warm weather inspires me as ideas for the garden race around my head. New […]
July is one of my favourite months of the year. I feel inspired by everything I see as I walk around town.
