Lately #22

Holla, newly renamed blog that I have not pinned to the new domain name and done other technical stuff to! Meh, it will get done eventually! In the mean time, lets have a quick catch up on all the happenings (or rather non happenings) going on lately…. Welp, since my last blog post I have…

Bournemouth Mini Break

Last weekend Rob, Dylan and I went on our first mini break together as a threesome. We stayed in a questionable hotel (more on that soon) for one night in Bournemouth, Dorset. It was my treat to Rob as a joint B.day and fathers day present, and my last big spending blow out before my…

Last Weekend

Last weekend was a good one. It was my Mums 60th birthday so my Dad had organised a surprise stay for her in a hotel in Sandbanks, Bournemouth with Rob and I, my sister, her husband and the boys and the parents besties, a lovely couple who we have all known for years. It involved a lot of…

My Birthday 2015

“So how old is Aunty Helen going to be?” said the oldest nephew as he was drawing me a Mario themed birthday picture around my parents house. After my Mum told him the answer he replied “well, she doesn’t look it, and she rides her bike!” I’ll take it! When you get to my age you…

At Last, A Complete Set Of Pyrex!

I find the simplest type of blog posts like “here’s some new to me Pyrex, now look at the pretty pictures” are the hardest for me to write. I find it much easier to ramble on about random crap incoherently (as demonstrated in my previous post), than edit myself, keeping things short and sweet and to the point!…

My Birthday 2014

This year, back in May, my birthday came and went. I almost wasn’t going to blog about it this year, but as I did back in 2012 (twice) and in 2013, I thought that I might as well keep up the tradition and do a memory dump post on here for future reference! This year wasn’t the…

Early Birthday Stuff 2014

Its my birthday in a few weeks, and this year I have received my present from Rob early. I GOT A BIKE PEOPLE!!! Yup, a brand new shiny bike! I am such a lucky girl with a great* other half who is far too generous. To be honest the bike is not a huge surprise. It has been a…

My Birthday 2013

Sometimes its great having a blog to record moments in your life. When I was blabbering on about Glastonbury last week, I was really pleased that I wrote about the festival we went to last year, so I could look back at the photos again and reminisce. Last year I blogged about Rob and my…

Rob’s Birthday Cake

I previously hinted that I had a top secret project planned for Rob’s birthday cake. Maybe I was a little over ambitious in my plans but I decided to make him some cookie monster cupcakes. This is why I will never have a future in cake decorating! I had seen pictures of other peoples success’s…
