Today was a good day.

Life can get on top of you - you get caught up in the busyness of working and school stuff - it gets darker earlier meaning we are all feeling tired - we have become pretty lazy at the weekends, tending to only head out if we need shopping.

It has b...

As this year is flying by at an alarming rate - I thought I'd share some of my past home-made decorations with you. I have gone for the rustic, natural look.

It's pretty obvious from all my photographs and of course my blog - that we are big fans of the great outdoors. Sometimes my three do need a bit of extra encouragement to get away from the TV - so I've been bringing a few extra bits with me when we go out walking.

We tend to get a little excited when we discover things whilst walking in the woods - yesterday we discovered our first batch of Scarlet Elf Cups - there were loads of them covering the woodland floor!

They are fairly common in damp, mossy woodland but it's the first ti...

I am throwing it back to January 2017 - this is what we were up to two years ago.....

We have a new guilty pleasure that comes in the form of a series on the Discovery channel – it’s called Alaskan Bush People and we’ve totally got sucked into watching their lives on sc...

"But in this world nothing can be said to be certain, except death and taxes.” Benjamin Franklin.

Not a pleasant subject - but inevitable that at some point, we will have to leave this world and it is good to talk with family and friends about funeral pla...
