    A to Z Blogging Challenge: S is for Selfie With A Giraffe

    Welcome back to my A to Z Blogging Challenge posts. I’ve fallen a little behind, but instead of trying to do the posts that I’ve missed, I’m writing the post that I was meant to write today anyway, which is S, and I’ll catch up later when I have time. So, today is S for Selfie With A Giraffe, which is one of the items close to the top of my wish list. If you’d like to read the rest of my posts, you can catch up by clicking on my index post, which is right here. I’ve always been a short person. I’m 4ft 10 (and a half) and…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: M is for Marble

    Onto the third week of the challenge now and I’m getting to the stage where I can see the end in sight. I think today is the halfway point. So, M is for Marble and initially I was going to write about a brand called Marble (I really admire their products and would love to buy them) but the problem with that idea was that it might be too much like advertising and you’re not allowed to do anything commercial on the A to Z Blogging Challenge. Ok, I wouldn’t have been getting paid for it and wouldn’t have anything to gain from it, but it’s still slightly suspicious. So,…

    Review: Rainbow Chalk Sealant Pen and Grout Pen

    Sometimes I’m asked to review items and I have to turn the chance down because it’s an item that I wouldn’t otherwise have used or needed. Then there are items like these that I was literally desperate to try because the items were on my shopping list anyway. Today I’m reviewing the Rainbow Chalk sealant pen and grout pen. I’ve received a gifted free sample for the purposes of review but the opinions are my own. First let’s tackle the sealant pen. The first thing I did was try it on my bathroom seals but I just replaced the seal on my bath so it doesn’t tell you much about…

    A to Z Blogging Challenge: H is for Home

    Today for the A to Z Blogging Challenge, I was going to write about H for Health and that’s what was mentioned yesterday on my Gibraltar post. That’s not the vibe I am feeling today though. Although good health is vitally important for all my family and I wouldn’t have my best possible life without them all having excellent health, I can’t stick it on the wish list today. Partly because I feel like if we had our best life possible, then excellent health would follow. It’s a chicken and egg scenario. So, instead today is going to represent H for Home. I want a new one. I am almost…

    Moving House Without A Hitch

    Each spring I like to take stock of my life and re-visit some goals. Sometimes it can be as simple changing my bedtime routine or reminding myself that I made a resolution back in January that needs to be maintained. One year, totally on a whim, I moved house. It’s almost the anniversary of when we moved so that made me think about a post I wanted to write, sharing the mistakes I made when I was moving house so that you don’t have to make the same mistakes! Organise Your Packing When Moving House When packing for a house move, I think it’s really important to organise everything you’re…
