Planning, etcetera

Man I need a new job! Being in the planning stages of the Grand Escape is daunting as all hell and having next to no money after all the apartment buying and moving doesnt really help matters! So, I have to find a job that pays more, plus another way to supplement my income, and cut back on expenditure, and at the same time plan (and pay for) the initial outlays for the trip and make sure I have enough savings to be able to survive once Im out on the road. Errr, yeah...piece of cake... Read more »

Love: Teal

I really do love the colour teal, so much so that its our main wedding colour! Theres just something so...calm about it. It reminds me of the deepest parts of the ocean, the great below. I also love, love, love Etsy so I thought Id put together a collection of gorgeous teal pieces sourced only from Etsy sellers*. The best part? Everything here is under €50, so if youre looking for a lovely Christmas gift, look no further! Read more »

DIY Yarn Lightshade

Have you guys discovered Pinterest yet? Im totally addicted. Every time I pop on there I find another 50 projects that I just have to do and some of them are so simple. Therere a few projects on there that come up time and time again and I keep telling myself that I must get around to soon. The other night Big Guy had a lot of catching up to do on the Sky+ box and I figured that it was as good a time as any for me to get stuck into one of the pins that I see all the time and looks easy-peasy. (It also he...

DIY Personalised Shopping Bag

content discovered on Friday, November 2, 2012 in kitty helper quick project heart diy shopping bag

If youre not already carrying your own bags shopping with you then shame on you! Hopefully though this project might help you change your ways. I dont know about you but I always find that the same-ness of the shopping bags bores me. I love it when Im in the supermarket and I see someone with a bag thats a little bit different. Its kinda like your handbag, or anything else that you wear - your choice of shopping bag can say a lot about you - if you let it! Read more »

Long time coming

content discovered on Tuesday, October 30, 2012 in ttc infertility

Ive been putting off writing this post since forever. Im all on for the sharing of anonymous information with strangers that come across the blog but its much harder to write something personal when I know that theres people in our real lives who read what I put up here. Its even harder when its information that not all of them will have been privy to (until now). This is not a post that will come easily to me, and Id imagine its not going to always be easy to read either. Also, if youre anyway squeamish...

Happy Sunday everyone! This post is a bit late in coming to you, Ive actually had it lined up for the last week and kept forgetting to put it up so apologies. Anyway, when we went shopping for paint testers there were a few lovely bits and pieces that I spotted whilst I was out and about and I wanted to share them with you guys. First up was our trip to BQ to get the paint. Naturally enough I cant resist a trip around the entire store when Im there (though the Big Guy was relieved that he managed to kee...

Ive been very bad...(no, not just about updating this blog). We agreed a few months back that we would concentrate our energies on the wedding and then next year we would start looking at houses. Thats a fair deal, right? That totally makes sense. Until Im at home, a bit bored, and well, the houses are just there arent they? Online, being all ready with their estate-agent photos going Look at me, look at meeeee. I caved, I gave in, I folded like a cheap suit. Read more »

Tips #2 - How to use paint tester pots most eff...

content discovered on Saturday, October 20, 2012 in diy painting household tips fleetwood dulux

We spoke to our lovely landlady the other day and have gotten permission to re-paint. Hurrah! As you can imagine we hurried out to the nearest hardware store and bought tester pots of all the paint colours we had narrowed down and brought them home. It was only when I turned my back on the Big Guy for 2 minutes and came back to find him about to paint a big square on the kitchen wall that I realised not everyone knows my hand-dandy way of making the best use of your tester pots. I dont care if youve seen...

Tips #1 - Make your home smell delicious!

content discovered on Tuesday, October 16, 2012 in cinnamon delicious nice smells vanilla extract household tips cloves whole autumn apple

Now I dont know about you but I always worry about what people smell when they come into our house for the first time - or any time for that matter! Maybe its because we have pets, and non-pet owners often comment on doggy smells in pet-owners homes, or because weve all had the experience of walking into someones house and wrinkling up our noses or trying to subtly mouth breathe! Anyway, I spend a small fortune on plug-ins and sprays, scented candles and all the rest of that commercial junk. I really h...

No 2. - The House

content discovered on Monday, October 15, 2012 in

Home/lifestyle blog, youve met the what? Oh yeah, the house. Right, as mentioned last year we moved in here in a rush and just took the first place that would allow us to have pets in it. Now thats not to say anything against the house, its an alright place but just very...beige...and the previous tenants had apparently left quite a mess behind them. Our lovely landlady had this cleaned up before we moved in but there was no repainting or really fixing anything a bit broken done at the t...
