Waterlogue

We have been the house of the sick this week. Poor Miss L has a virus which being the kind child she is, has shared with me.  Yesterday after the nth hour of being bored in bed, I was looking at Instagram – nothing like seeing the world through the eyes of other people, especially […]

Spring and Summer Event with B&Q & Some Pretty Meringues Too.

I was thrilled to be invited to the Spring/Summer B&Q event in London this week.  I needed to get out of the house and away from the freezing fens to get some new inspiration.  After a journey down in pouring rain and a lovely chat with a cabbie, I arrived to find lots of yummy […]

{Mini Review} Getting your Instagram photos off the screen

I love my Instagram and Hipstamatic photos, and I have literally thousands of them. At the last count I had 4,000 photos on my phone and I don’t want to think about how many are on my laptop. I’m a digital hoarder extrordinare! But sometimes, it’s nice to have a physical copy of a photo […]

Autumn Nesting

The temperature here has dropped like a stone, it’s suddenly Autumn and I’m quickly getting into hibernation mode!  Now as my husband is insisting on being ‘thrifty’ no heating is going on here until at least late October – grrr!.  So I’m living in my new £8 Fleece from Sainsbury’s. I have to say I […]
