Rainy days and Sundays always make me glad

Rainy days and Sundays always make me glad

‘This post was written in collaboration with Snazaroo’ We are desperate for some sun or at least for the snow and rain to clear up. I am running short of rainy day ideas, really you can only play hide and seek in a house as small as ours so many times. Just before the snow arrived we had a parcel arrive that has honestly kept us sane the past few weeks. Even Dylan at the grand old age of 8…

The green, green artificial grass of home

The green, green artificial grass of home

I sometimes wonder if we actually have a dog or a rabbit. My back garden looks like it’s had a plough go across it. My gorgeous 2 year old Labrador does love to have a dig.

Going off topic but why did anyone ever think it was a good idea to put up woodchip paper? When we first moved in it was like a woodchip igloo. Even the floors were woodchipped (slight exaggeration but felt like it). Anyway it’s time for his bedroom to get…

Mud glorious mud with vintage apple crates

Mud glorious mud with vintage apple crates

When you move to the country you prepare yourself for so many things, the one thing I wasn’t really that prepared for was the relentless streams of mud that seem to end up on my wooden floors. The children are good and will kick boots off but it’s normally exactly that. Muddy boots kicked off with mud flying everywhere. The one thing we could do to prevent this was organising a way of storing muddy boots, and the way we…
