Not one of my favourite jobs, not at all, but especially this time of year it is essential. Making sure my car is clean and safe. Living in a rural area like I do my car gets muddy quickly, and if you can’t see your number plate you could be getting a ticket. Not great. Simple car care really is essential.

Feeling Calm #26

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends to help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites.

So here are my top 10 moments from the past 7 days; Continue reading Feeling Calm #26

Father’s Day Fun from Hobbycraft

I recently took a trip to my local Hobbycraft in Norwich to grab a few bits so that L and I could make some fun Father’s Day gifts. Now L is only two and half years old, there is a limit to what he can craft but no limit to the mess he can make, or the fun he will have making it!

So we pushed back the rug, got him into his little craft apron, these are brilliant and only cost £1, well worth purchasing one, and then we set about immortalising Daddy by creating a portrait of him.
