New Old Stuff

Since we moved I have hardly bought any vintage. I have been very good and even left Pyrex behind! I am trying to operate a “one in one out” policy with any new bits. Because I like all my current stuff, I am not rushing to replace it any time soon. However there is alway…

7 Months In The Hood

Todays post is a summary of my feelings about motherhood and why I changed my mind about having a kid (a post that I said aaaaages ago to Janet I would write!) Remember when I said that I would not talk about baby stuff on my blog? Oops! Oh well, shit happens (a lot in our household,…

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…

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

Babies are so bad for the environment and that’s my understatement of the year! Sod using public transport, not owning a car, recycling, buying secondhand, growing your own, eating less meat, being vegetarian/vegan or cleaning your house without chemicals. The best way to cut down your carbon foot print is not to breed! I was fully…

And Then There Were Three….

…..Or four of us in the household now, if you include the cat, which I 100% do BTW! Please allow me to introduce Dylan Milo. He was born on Saturday 24/12/16 weighing 5lb 15oz at 3.08am. We are totally smitten with the little fellow and we are on a sleep deprived cloud nine high ATM!…
