The Reality Of Owning An Old House

I remember seeing our house for the first time. Well, when I saw it advertised anyway. We had just stated to look for houses and for some reason I was drawn to this one. It went under offer quickly though and I didn’t think about it again. I remember having a conversation with someone at work and saying if it ever came back on the market it was the one I wanted. Not much later this actually happened and I couldn’t believe it. We viewed the house and put in an offer quickly and things went forward quite fast from

Erin’s First Mud Kitchen

We’re very lucky to have big back garden, even if it’s not the nicest of spaces. However, we have a big patch of lawn and we have a decent sized patio area so there is plenty of room for Erin to play. Something that I’ve wanted to get her for quite a long time is a mud kitchen. She had one at her first nursery and LOVED playing with it. I knew if we had one it would be something Erin got a lot out of and this was what we got her for her 4th birthday. It wasn’t originally

The Surprise Of A Panic Attack

At the beginning of December I went on a weekend away to London with my Mum. It had been something that I’d planned months before and it was my Mum’s Christmas present. I had a hotel booked, theatre tickets and meals out as well as some exploring time. It was also the first weekend away I’d had without John or Erin for about 2 years so I was really looking forward to it. Unfortunately, right at this time Greater Anglia had some horrendous problems with the trains in our area. At about 6pm on the day before I was due

I struggle with organising meals if they are just for myself and I sometimes can’t be bothered to prepare a full meal. I want something quick, filling and easy to sort out. Recently, after giving up drinking sugary drinks like Coca Cola, I lost a bit of weight but it put me at an awkward in between size. To try to get down to that lower size I decided to try

5 Favourite Films Of 2019

Every month I write about the things we’ve been watching, both on TV and films. Although I haven’t watched loads this year, and definitely not new releases, I wanted to look back and talk about 5 of my favourite films of 2019. Bohemian Rhapsody I bought John Bohemian Rhapsody for Father’s Day back in June and I really wasn’t that fussed about watching it. I like Queen well enough but I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan. But, John put it on and within minutes I was hooked and I stopped working to watch it. Rami Malek is pretty incredible
