More Baby Talk

Yep, its yet more baby talk! I bet you are thinking – “that Helen, she has turned into a right baby bore. All she talks about on her blog is baby stuff and her cats minge belly!”* And yes, you are right, those two topics have been my main subject matter of late. So for a…

Lately #20

Hello my poor neglected blog. I haven’t forgotten you. I have just not had any time for you lately. I thought about ditching you, throwing in the towel, calling it quits. After all, maybe its best that we leave each other on a high. Its not you, its me, etc. But then I realised that my…

My Cat Is Odd

This post is a bit of a random one (as per usual!) But as I am not getting out the house much at the moment, and I have no one else to talk to bore about my cat with other than Rob and my family on the phone, I thought that I would have a quick…

Five Years Of Blogging!

Back in 2012, I decided to start a blog for something to do while I was briefly unemployed. I never guessed that I would stick at it for this long! As a fan of blogs, I wanted to have a go myself, writing about baking, music, vintage and decorating our house. I also wanted to improve my…

The Understatement Of The Year

15 Years!

Today marks 15 years of togetherness with Rob. We met towards the end of 2001 in our local indie dive bar and sort of knew each other through our friends (his best mate used to go out with my BFF at the time’s cousin). I had heard of this mate who drove a VW Beetle, and…

The New House – The Finished Lounge

I am really pleased to say that we have finished decorating our lounge! We actually finished decorating the room at the beginning of December, and now that we finally have brought some curtains (its a long story involving several trips to Dunelm, a £700+ made to measure quote* and a wrong sized curtain pole!) everything is…
