A few months ago I noticed the mole on my upper right arm had changed. It had always been a large, pale brown, circle-shape – except that I thought that the middle had started to become slightly darker. Maybe looked different. I mentioned it to Hubby, who couldn’t really tell if it looked strange – but we both agreed that I should go to the…

Some of my lovely blogging friends decided to get together to do a ‘not-so-secret’ Santa, this Christmas. I absolutely wanted to join in too! Not working in an office anymore means I don’t get to do fun things like this, and so I was more than delighted to take part. I was paired with the lovely and very funny Katie, who blogs at Life on…

Hello! Welcome to another week (21st December 2014) of the Sunday Stars linky.  This is a place for you to share your favourite posts each week. Myself and a group of lovely bloggers have decided to start this linky together. We wanted to create a place where all our favourite posts from the week could be easily shared and then thought why not let everyone join in! We’re going…

This week I have mostly been shattered. Seriously though, I have been getting over our Center Parcs trip all week. The twins were the same too. They were both very cranky for a few days (due to a lack of sleep and being out of their routine) and so we’ve all been recovering this week! Monday we returned from Center Parcs and I spent the…

They have each other, granted, and will always have a built-in, ready-made, best mate (for life). They are truly lucky. However, they start pre-school in January and one of my worries is whether or not they mix well, and make new friends. “Oh,…

This is a tweet, which contains a blog that I have either just discovered, or been reading for some time, to share with my followers. I started it because there are so many fantastic and diverse blogs out there – and I wanted to share some love for the truly…

When it comes to winter hats – I have a few. Some really suit me, some don’t! My favourite?…Like the one above, I love a good bobble hat! However, there are so many styles and choices, and some hats are better for different occasions. Below are my hats this winter, and what I am enjoying wearing. Plus – a good hat covers a bad hair day!!…BONUS!

Where we live, it has snowed quite a lot during the winter. We’re in a rural (ish) spot in North Wales, and we have had some fantastic snow over the last 4 years that we have lived here. In particular, late 2012/early 2013, when it was so deep and all the power went off for days and we had to dig ourselves out and go…

I have a small but steep flight of stairs in our cottage, leading to our upstairs. It is narrow and feels dark. It needed some TLC to bring it to life! As I am obsessed with photographs I thought it was a quick, easy and cheap way of updating the walls. I visited a friends house recently who had a whole wall full of photographs and…
