Melting Moments

Another bright sunny day of blue skies - finished the supermarket shop, my youngest has finished school for half term - a week at home together before the family holiday next week, looking forward to a lovely break together. Daughter number one has had a pile of GCSE exams the last couple of weeks, FP has been working hard on assignments and her artwork, Mr H needs a well earned break from work also - so holiday here we come !
I have discovered a brilliant new book : 'Simply Wonderwoman' by Joanna Gosling - chock full of loads of simple ideas to save time and money! Using said book as my inspiration I shall be posting a daily handy tip for all women with too much to do!

Today's simple tip: Shave with oil - either olive, baby etc. Apply oil and shave, leaves skin smooth, can be done with or without water, brilliant for last minute leg-shaving on unexpectedly sunny mornings.....can not believe I've only just discovered this!

Sweet little pin cushion

 One of my favourite blogs is Kate Masons, I love her gorgeous artwork and all the beautiful photo's she posts, on a dreary day it brightens everything up !

Button to her Etsy store, well worth a visit!

Wet and Windy

It has been some time since I last blogged, I'm not really sure why this is except that sometimes I get a bit bogged down with family 'stuff ' - there isn't always the time to find a quiet half an hour to devote entirely to my own thoughts....a bit down with yet another 'bug' this week, I have started volunteering at my sons school one day a week but have stayed home today, better to keep my germs to myself than infecting anyone else I think....have been quite busy with parcels to post and piles of washing to deal with....Yesterday we had a lovely sunny day with a breeze that blew all the cobwebs away but this morning we are back to grey skies and rain and wind that makes my ears hurt......I've been reading lovely blogs to cheer myself up, all the colour and creativity does wonders for the soul!

Feeling much better now!
