It has been a year since we lost my father-in-law, and since I wrote my tribute post to him Loss. Yesterday, on the anniversary of his death, we spread his and my mother-in-law’s ashes in St Andrews. She died 20 years ago and he kept her ashes as he wanted to be reunited with her. It… Continue reading A year on from loss
I am seeking some help. My sister got me some indoor rose plants for my birthday a couple of weeks ago, and despite watering them and putting them in sunlight, they are not doing so well. The white roses especially are browning, dry and drooping. I’ve managed to keep my other house plants alive with… Continue reading Dying roses: please help!!
Just a quick post today. It was my birthday yesterday and I had such a lovely day with my family. We went out to dinner at our local pub. Ah, the days of fancy restaurants and good fillet steak are gone. If they’ve got crayons, some toys and an outdoor play bit I am sold.… Continue reading Birthday Treats
I have been meaning to write this particular post for about the last 8 months (story of my life. I have lots of ideas for posts. I just need a bit more time). I first thought about writing it as I was putting away my son’s 0 to 3 month clothes and I was hit with… Continue reading Growing Up
This post is one that I planned to write months ago and I feel pretty dreadful that I haven’t managed to write it until now as it is a thank you post to Joey over at Little Black Dogsa. She ran a yarn giveaway competition a few months ago to celebrate her blog being 4… Continue reading Super scrummy yarn
I am not quite sure how 2 months has passed since my last post Loss, but it would seem we are in September and my wee blog has been woefully neglected. But whilst my digital life has been quiet, my actual life has been hectic to say the least. As you can imagine, we are… Continue reading Hello again.
I haven’t posted anything recently as my father-in-law died very suddenly a couple of weeks ago and we have all been left reeling. As you can imagine we are all trying our best to come to terms with it. My husband and his sister lost their mum 19 years ago, so a lot of the… Continue reading Loss
I’m off on holiday tomorrow and the last few days have been pretty busy trying to get everything organised – so much harder when you have to organise yourself and two little ones! I’m still finishing up my packing (and we have to leave the house in 5 hours as flight is at 6am!) but… Continue reading Holiday!
Today marks my one year blogiversary! In that time my first born has gone from being a toddler to a little girl, who thinks she can do everything herself… I’ve also had my second child, now approaching his 6 month birthday. Less independent, more “I need you to hold me all the time, thanks” – although… Continue reading 1 Year Blogiversary!
As I wrote in my last post (Are you ready to Commit to Knit?), I committed to knit last year, but hadn’t actually completed my commitment. The call to Commit again spurred me on, and I spent the last few nights finishing off my 2 bears for the Angel Teds project for Yorkhill Hospital, which… Continue reading Angel Teds
