I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Our Rayburn 345w is here!!!

Here is my beautiful, lovely, wonderful, gorgeous, fabulous new Rayburn.

It has been sitting in position in the kitchen for a few days now; with me, every time I pass by giving it a little stroke. Occasionally I bend down and kiss it. Perhaps that’s not natural, but I’d

be very surprised if any other woman who received this sleek black heating machine wouldn’t be the same. I’m not stupid, I know it won’t look this shiny and new for ever, but for some reason, I feel that with each new cake crumb or spilt drop of olive oil, I will love it all the more.

So anyway, the people are here and currently sorting out the chimney and hopefully by the end of the week I’ll be cooking on it and we’ll have a lovely warm kitchen. Ooooh I can’t wait! (claps hands and jumps up and down.)

Rain kindly bought this book for me for Mothers’ Day, and I’ve since managed to fit in the odd five minutes here and there to read it. That’s one good thing about Things Are What You Make Of Them – it doesn’t take long to read! Oh that makes me sound like I don’t like it, which isn’t true. It’s a book for the current generation who take their entertainment and information in snippets; in bite-size chunks of Instagram stories. There are even perforated edges so you can choose your favourite little pages of words of wisdom to put up on your copper magnet board next to the foiled print that says Eat Sleep Create….

Living with hypothyroidism – blame, balance, and being kind to yourself

This week is Thyroid awareness week and the 25th of May is World Thyroid Day. It feels like every day of the week and every week of the year is National or International awareness day for something or other. Well, this is mine. I hope we don’t get too weary of these sorts of days and weeks that we become indifferent about them. Anyway, I wrote more about my Hypothyroid disease story on a post a few years ago if you’d like a read of that first; and please scroll down to watch the video I made about it as well…
