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 🙂

Being warm

There’s a few funny thing to get used to.

The thing that I actually kind of miss, is being so in tune with nature. If it was freezing outside, then it was freezing inside; if it was slightly warmer outside, it was slightly warmer inside. The week before last  it was hailing/snowing/sleeting outside, but because it was warm inside, we hardly realised! If we’re going out now, we have to actually pop outside to tell how warm it is, to know what to wear. It’s quite strange!

The Nutella! This is possibly the best thing about the warmth (apart from actually being warm of course) No longer do we have to de-frost the nutella on the toaster. Now it is smooth and soft and ready to spread!

The washing up. Now, you stack it up and it dries all by itself! (Tea-towels were a necessity before)

Clothes. They are already at a comfortable temperature to put on in the morning! No longer do I need to put them in front of a fan heater; turning them round occasionally before they were bearable to wear! They honestly used to feel like they’d been hanging up outside all night.

The Rayburn has the added bonus of acting like an iron. I fold up the kids’ school t-shirts and leave them lying on the lids of the hob and the creases (mostly) come out!

Burlesque Wonderland – Alice through the Martini glass at The Fleece in Bristol
October 5, 2016
From blackberries yesterday to burlesque today! And why not? Rain didn’t really know what to do to celebrate her twenty-first birthday. She had originally planned a day of wand-making (yes really) with her two best friends, followed by films and a sleepover. Then Jude spotted this event in Bristol just a couple of days beforehand and we all decided that we’d quite like to go. So the wand-making stopped early for everyone to change into their Alice in Wonderland Costumes….
Feather & Black in Bath, Somerset
Celebrating the new Feather & Black bedroom furniture shop in Bath, Somerset
June 15, 2018
Most of the shops were closing and only a few people milled around the beautiful Georgian streets of Bath as I walked up from the Southgate car park to Northumberland place, a little street to the right as you go up the hill of the main high street. The new premises of Feather and Black are beautiful and is one of those rare shops that haven’t completely hidden all the original architectural features of the building. I’ll be honest though, when I walked into the opening party, I didn’t notice them at first because I was too busy looking at the lovely furniture and accessories….
How to host an afternoon tea party
October 18, 2016
Yes I know it’s not exactly the weather for this in the garden any more, but it can still be done inside! My daughter didn’t want to go out on the piss for her eighteenth birthday last month – partly because she’s the first of her friends to turn legal in pubs, so it wouldn’t be much fun getting drunk on her own – and partly because that’s not really her sort of thing anyway. For now at least! So it was her idea to have afternoon tea in the garden with a nod to an Alice in Wonderland theme….
