Portland Bill

I wrote the other day about wanting to spend as much time as I could having fun with Syd before he starts school, but he isn’t the only one of my children with whom time suddenly seems to be slipping away too quickly.

When I had just one child planning days out was a straight forward affair – I simply applied the ‘Will she enjoy it?’ rule on the basis of if she is having a nice time then so will we!

How Does Your Garden Grow – Part the Two

I have now been a garden *owner (*renter) for just over 4 weeks, and I cannot say that my knowledge has increased much since my last post. One thing I can tell you about how my garden grows, is that it is fast at this time of year. Some rain and some glorious sunshine have seen it spring to life, and now I am more lost than ever as to where to start with the overgrown borders, and am actually considering hiring a gardener for a few hours to give it a tidy and hopefully impart some wisdom along the way. Or should I just grab a hoe and go for it?! Have a hoedown as it were.

Things That Are Better With Cake

Mornings. Mornings are definitely better with cake. Especially the ones where it has all gone wrong, you are late to school, it rains on you, and you tread in a dog poo on the way home. On these sort of mornings, cake doesn’t just improve life, it is life. Along with its accompanying coffee.

Our House – The Kitchen

Some of you have kindly asked to see some pics of our new abode – am starting with the kitchen, because I am a little bit in love with it, and because it is one room that doesn’t still have unpacked boxes in it!

How Does Your Garden Grow?

How does your garden grow? Well, my name isn’t Mary (tho I am sometimes contrary), but that is a very good question. I don’t have a bloody clue, but am hoping by joining in with Mammasaurus‘s linky of the same name I might pick up some tips.
