As I write this blog post it’s absolutely blowing a storm outdoors, the windows are rattling, I have a jumper and a cardigan on, I’m cradling a cup of tea and it’s a really chilly week-day. Now that it is here, January already feels cold, bleak and dark. Who else is already excited for spring-time?…*puts hand in the air*.

Dave and I are *those* kind of people. The ones where we will be chatting away, discussing an idea, (such as creating a new decked area in our garden) and then a few hours later the wood is ordered, the hole is being dug and the furniture being planned out. This is a true story! It happened a few weeks ago when we were casually…

One of the aspects that I love the most about living in the countryside (aside from the quiet, laid-back way of living – away from the hustle and bustle) is the changing seasons.

Some of the simplest things that the twins and I get up to together are in fact the nicest. And – as you can probably tell from reading my blog –…

We don’t get out much at the moment. Recently the weather has been pretty bad here in North Wales (cold and wet) and so taking the twins out on my own has been a little tricky. However, at the weekends Hubby and I try to do as much as we can, to make up for it. This simple walk down the lanes this Saturday morning was…
