Life Rambles: Friday’s Five Favourites #2

Greetings chums! Just checking in to say hello. I feel like I haven’t been around at all this week. Monday’s trip to the Arc de Triomphe seems like ages ago. Gosh I loved Paris! Must plan another visit for next year! Today I wanted to share a few things that have made me smile this week… Read more »

Life Rambles: A Happy List

Everything is a little depressing at the moment. You can’t read a paper or watch the news without a swathe of really sad news articles and segments. It’s got me a little blue. To try and counteract this I thought I’d compile a little list of happy things. Things that have made me smile this… Read more »

Life Rambles: Top 10 of Now – August

Wales – Okay, so I’ve already mentioned this once on the blog already, but here I go again. The 24 hours I spent in Wales earlier this month was fantastic. Going to Wales is like going home and there’s only a few other places that give me that feeling. New House Love – it feels… Read more »

Life Rambles: Currently Pondering

(This picture is unrelated to the post, it’s just from my recent Paris trip and I adore it! So I thought why not!) Apologies in advance for the brain dump, but sometimes it’s nice just to discuss random things that pop into your brain. I’m hoping you’ll all reassure me that I’m not alone in… Read more »

Life Lately: Eleven Days In

So we’ve been in the new house for eleven days now and it’s already feeling like home.

The house itself is lovely and big, and it… Read more »

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. Reading I’ve read four books so far this month; The Paris Mysteries (Confessions #3), James Patterson, Before We Met, Lucie Whitehouse, Too Close to Home, Linwood Barclay and Triptych (Will Trent #1), Karin Slaughter. 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 »
