Project 52

My eldest girl went on a sleepover this week and the little one was most upset to see her sister going off without her.  After we had mopped up the tears, she decided to wait at the window for her return.  Needless to say, this didn’t last long and the promise of cake provided the motivation to move!

Project 52

For those readers who may not live in the UK, we can safely say that spring has not sprung…at all…in anyway shape or form.

This is the view from my back door onto my neighbours rather lovely thatched cottage.  I was rather taken with the little pop of red from the rosehips, I’m longing for the day when the new roses will arrive…

Keep cosy y’all!

Week 12

Project 52

There was a bit of a milestone in our household this week.  My husband turned *whispers* 40.

As you can see from the picture below, there was a bit of a theme to this year’s gifts. Yes, dear reader, we are now the proud owners of a 1974 Bay Campervan.  We, well me & the girls, have named her Marigold.  She’s a lovely yellowy orange colour and it’s one of my favourite songs – listen to it here.  She makes me smile and I’ve not even been able to drive her yet. She didn’t quite make it home and is now residing in the yard of our local garage.  I’ll do some more posts on her and will be taking lots of before, during & after pictures as she needs a bit *lot* of TLC currently…

Do any of you have or have had a camper?  I’d love to hear your top tips for Happy Camping!

I have a feeling that the Haynes manual will be the one we will be reading the most…

Project 52

I’m really fortunate to work from home but sometimes I feel that I never get away from it.  Add 2 children into the mix and it can all feel a little overwhelming occasionally.

I managed to steal a few moments to myself this week which is always lovely… Sometimes, all I need is a little sit down with a coffee, pancakes and a good magazine!

It’s been a wee while since I posted my pictures for my Project 52.  I have been dutifully taking them though and today you get to see the fruits of my labours.

I bought these daffodils and was waiting for them to blossom into life when I noticed these 3 in varying stages.

I’ve been trying out some new product shots for my work and trying to give myself a little more exposure on Pinterest and other sites like Instagram (ABCSTREET) *hangs head in shame at self-promotion*

Pancake

Week 7

If you read my post the other day on Pancakes, you will have already seen this picture, but it pretty much sums up what I’ve been eating this week!
