Life Lately: Eleven Days In

So we’ve been in the new house for eleven days now and it’s already feeling like home. I was worried we wouldn’t settle in for a while and that we’d feel like we were living in someone else’s house, but thankfully that’s not happened. Hooray indeed! The house itself is lovely and big, and it… Read more »

Thought of the Day #26: A Good Day

Something that I’ve realised recently is that attitude matters. If you think you’re going to have a hideous day then you probably will. Self fulfilling prophecy anyone? On the flip-side of this, and more importantly if you decide it’s going to be a good day, then the likelihood is that it will be a good… Read more »

Life Rambles: Moving House by Numbers

Today we are moving house. We have finally, finally exchanged and completed on a property. If you’ve been around these parts at all over the last few months then you’ll be aware that we’ve had some issues, to say the least, with this move. But the end is finally here and everything was worth it in… Read more »

Life Rambles: Life Lately – July

Today we’re having a little life lately update, so read on for what happened in July.

I think that’s a new monthly record for… Read more »

Life Rambles: Recently in verbs

Here’s a little recently in verbs, one of my favourite types of post! Reading some really good manuscripts for work, which has got me very excited for next year! Also I’ve been devouring home magazines recently. Is there anything more inspiring than seeing what others have done on a super small budget?  Celebrating birthdays with… Read more »

Life Rambles: Recently Pinned – June

I’ve just checked and It’s been 3 months since my last Latest Pins post. How did that happen? Time really does fly! While looking over my recent pins I noticed that there are three main categories that most of my pinning falls into. So today I’m sharing my Top 3 pins from those categories over the… Read more »

Life Rambles: Snapshots of Early Summer

Greetings lovely people,  I hope you’re all having a brilliant Sunday! I’ve had a pretty awesome weekend with some of my best friends, but it’s been exhausting let me tell you! So I’m very much looking forward to a Game of Thrones catch up and a night of football viewing this evening. A quiet evening… Read more »

Life Rambles: Game of Thrones

Image Credit: Ryan Pohanic c/o Unsplash Are you guys watching the latest series of Game of Thrones? I am and I have to say I’m not loving it. Last year I’d watch each episode bang on 9pm on a Monday night. I’d rearrange my night around the show, hell I’d rearrange my week around it…. Read more »

Life Rambles: Life According to Instagram

Don’t you just love Instagram? I do. I spend my day working with images and yet Instagram is still the first social media app I open at lunchtime or at the end of the day on my train home. I just love the visual snapshot that it provides. I suppose the truth is that I… Read more »

Life Rambles: Top 10 of Now

So it’s been been awhile since one of these posts. I definitely managed one in March, but not so much for April. Although there was a Top 10 of Deal which was sort of the same thing. Maybe. These last few weeks have been manically busy – do I start every post off with that?… Read more »
