Welcome 2017!

Hello and a very happy (belated!) new year to you! I hope it is off to a good start, I have unfortunately been laid up with a nasty flu-like virus since Christmas Day (fabulous timing!) so it's been bed rest and box sets, not all bad news! I was dying to get some fresh air so managed to stagger round the woods and admire the winter landscape, Mia was kissing the ground to get out of the house at last! These sunny but chilly days are my favourite, particularly when there's no need to de-ice the car (my least favourite domestic job after ironing, booooo!). I am hoping to get back to feeling my usual self very soon, with an army of vitamins and a rainbow or fruit and veg to the rescue, so I hope to be back with some news! 

After my Macbook decided to keel over I haven't been blogging as much in 2016 as much as I would have liked too, I find processing a blog post on an iPad very annoying, but I really want to be back chatting with you a lot more! Promise!

Thanks for reading,




I hope you had a magical Christmas with all those you love, and were spoilt rotten! Working in retail meant my Christmas run-up was hectic to say the least, I didn't get any crafting or baking done at all which is most unlike me! I will just have to make time for more things like that though-out 2017. I love to hibernate after Christmas day and only leave my house for dog walking, I'm sure many of you can identify with that - very sensible.

I would like to thank you for visiting my little blog this year and I hope to be a lot more productive on here in 2017! Hope you continue to enjoy the rest of your festive season.


December Inspiration

How did we get Christmas sorted before the days of Pinterest?? There are so many fantastic ideas over on my Christmas board that I would need a whole lifetime of festive seasons to use them all....but hey, it's fun just to window shop!

I am preferring a far more parred down look this year, more emphasis on sparkle than colour, and a good hit of Scandi because lets face it, you can't go wrong! I actually have only just begun decorating my house so pictures of that will have to follow next time, I have been so hectic at work I am behind schedule!

Please do follow me over on Pinterest if you are a fellow fan, I hope you enjoy having a peek inside my idea of Christmas!

Thanks for dropping by,
