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. […]

Us brits are so completely pre-occupied with the weather for the following reason: We get a heat wave for a month, yet the second we elect to head for the coast to enjoy the weather by the seaside it absolutely pelts down with rain. It’s completely illogical, and you can NEVER rely on the weather. We […]
In the past year I have come across quite a few new blogs who have been started by mums to review products only. I have nothing against it, but I know there are some bloggers who don’t like that type of blogs. I personally think people should do what is right for them, and if […]

I don’t know about you but Spring cleaning brings out the shopper in me and makes me want new stuff to spruce up my home for the summer months. Budgets are tight so I have to contend with thrifty solutions instead… I have been looking to the blogosphere for inspiration. Jen at Love Chic Living […]

Oooh so… we have had the busiest crafting season behind us – Autumn – Chritsmas – Chinese New Year – Valentine’s – and then Easter… a long chain of one crafty goodness after another. So now that is behind us, we are faced with a blank crafty void, or is it? No, I hear you […]
The sun is finally out and I think it’s safe to say that Spring has sprung (or is springing). It’s time to venture back outside and now there’s a few more hours daylight at the end of the day, there’s no excuse for getting outdoors and being inspired by nature to craft. Queen of the […]
