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
You will have noticed that I have called this my thoughts rather than a review or a comparison and that is because I want to talk about Tom's Midnight Garden both the film and the book but I don't want to compare them or review them in the traditional sense. Instead I wanted to share… Continue reading My thoughts: Tom’s Midnight Garden
So, before I say anything please let me wish you all a Merry Christmas Eve! I love Christmas Eve, all the anticipation reaches fever pitch and everybody is excited and happy. Part of me loves it more than Christmas Day itself. What are your thoughts? Anyway, as there is just enough time to squeeze in… Continue reading Christmas jumpers – hit or miss?
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
A little while ago now I shared a couple of posts with some quotes that make me smile, you can find them here and here I really enjoyed putting those posts together, for two reasons: firstly because reading over the quotes and creating the images made me happy (they are quotes that make me smile after… Continue reading Something to brighten your day
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’!
In my last post I shared some of my favourite quotes by one of my favourite authors: Roald Dahl. My other favourite author, as mentioned before, is Jane Austen so I thought it would be fun to follow up with some of my favourite quotes of hers. These words remind me that actions more often… Continue reading More words that make me smile
