Thank-you notes are cool right? Whether they are the old fashioned pen and paper type or the more up to date text or email; they’re nice to give and receive aren’t they? I always try to say thank-you because I’m a stickler for good manners, and I think I achieve it with people but what… Continue reading A little thank-you to a favourite thing
This is a bit of a random post but the idea came to me and even though it's a little different to my usual content I really wanted to write it. So, here it is. Also, as it's Valentines day tomorrow and we are having an 'at home date night' to mark it, I figured… Continue reading An at home date night
In my last post I did a Book related Q and A and one of the questions that I answered was: 'Paperback, hardback or e-book?' I answered paperback, I didn't even need to think about it, I just knew straightaway. Anyway, that question stuck with me and got me thinking about real books versus e-books and… Continue reading Real books versus e-books

Well, I do close the important ones! It's not like I'm driving with the door open or leaving the house without locking up, that would just be stupid! So, what am I talking about? Is this a build up to some metaphorical reasoning? Nope! I'm simply referring to the doors within my house. So, why… Continue reading I just don’t close doors now apparently
I think I have a slight obsession with candles. I have way too many candles! I mean, I could probably stock my own shop, there's that many in my collection! I just love them though. I have large jar candles, votives, wax melts, tealights and so the list goes on. I have every colour of the rainbow… Continue reading You can’t have too many candles!
Let me tell you a quick story about my dad. He has a laptop bag (it was a briefcase back in the day) and it always was (I’m sure it still is) full of stationery, all neatly organised. I remember looking at all the pens and other bits and pieces and wanting to just help… Continue reading The happiness that new stationery brings
I was chatting with my other half last night and we were talking about the fact that even though we love spending time with each other and other people, we also both really enjoy, and need, a good dose of 'me time' as well. I'm not a loner, far from it. I love socialising with… Continue reading I love ‘me time’!
I love lists! Shall I make a list here telling you all the reasons why I love lists? Oh, wait, I can’t tick anything off on here so maybe not. I’ll go for some good old bullet points instead… • Lists help me to prioritise. I write down things that I need to do and… Continue reading Lots and lots of lists
