Jenson: 19 months old

I know I'm biased but we really do have the best kid. He's loving, intelligent, thoughtful, imaginative... Sure, he has the odd paddy but it's generally when he has to leave the park or if you're eating something and he isn't. Over the last month he really has blossomed and it's been amazing to have… Continue reading Jenson: 19 months old

Review: The Essential Christmas #BoxOfLame

That Lame Company is one of my new favourite sites. When I finally got to open the Blogger Box of Lame on my birthday a few weeks ago I couldn't believe how much awesome was packed in for such a bargain price.

I want to go on more adventures and try new things, making a conscious effort to visit places I've never been before - Anna's recommendation of The Sanctuary in Truro sounds like a… Continue reading Saturday Share #79

Friday Favourites #27

Another week, another Friday Favourites finished in the wee hours of Saturday morning. To say it's been the most stressful Christmas Eve Eve we've ever had would be an understatement. Less than 12 hours ago, our top floor bathroom carpet was soaked, water had streamed down the walls of Jenson's bedroom underneath and was pouring… Continue reading Friday Favourites #27

Item of the day: Poirot from Waterstones

When I was Christmas shopping in Truro a few backs I popped into Waterstones, as you do, and marvelled at the festive paperbacks. I fell for these beautiful editions of Poirot - The Adventure of the Christmas Pudding and Hercule Poirot's Christmas. Aren't they just the perfect stocking fillers for bookworms? I have to admit,… Continue reading Item of the day: Poirot from Waterstones

work christmas dinner

Sunday Snapshot #61

Some years you can have a bit of a Christmas dinner overkill. Between work dos, catching up with friends and the big day itself, it's possible to have too much turkey. Fortunately I'm only having two this year and this week I had my first - at work. This time next week I'll be stuffed… Continue reading Sunday Snapshot #61
