Slow Mornings and Fast Weekends

Slow Mornings There is something about waking naturally, rather than to the sound of an alarm or the radio. It always makes the mornings seem much more relaxed, even if they do start at the usual time of 7am (Yes, we are VERY lucky!). My favourite part of the school holidays is losing the rush to [...]

Strawberries, strawberries, everywhere!

If there is one thing that our short time as allotmenteer's taught us, it was to embrace the seasons and all that they bring.

Celebrating the end of the school year

Our life has been really fast paced recently, mostly because of our ongoing kitchen renovation. It will definitely be worth it, but the early mornings and late nights have been really hard. Ava has suffered from night terrors all the way through too, maybe because of the upheaval. Our kitchen has had a complete replaster, [...]

Designing Our Dream Kitchen – Part 1

Our kitchen is the real heart of our home. We are lucky that Mr T works office hours so can share most meals with us, and even comes home for dinner at lunchtime. We spend so much time in the kitchen, making drinks, cooking, watching the children play in the garden or just escaping from Paw [...]

It will be nine years since we moved into our house this summer. We moved in on a summers day in August and I remember the house felt so big. We were so excited to make it our home, and start a family. It was mostly decorated in neutral colours throughout and has front and [...]
