Yay for time off! Finally its the holiday season, where I plan to eat a horrific amount of food, play video games and enjoy being with friends and family. When I was younger, I really hated Christmas, because it was always a messy situation in my family home. So naturally I wasn't much of a… Continue reading Christmaaaaaassssss!
And I am very sorry for that! The last few months have been increasingly difficult, both at home and at work. New job means I was on training for several weeks and a lot of reading.

I asked if it was possible to make some for me for… Continue reading Pretty Little Things – Letter storage boxes
Not going to lie, this post comes straight from my bed. The bed I have been dreaming about crawling back into since 9am this morning (it's now 11:48pm on Sunday night) and one of the places I love being the most. I never used to be one for staying in bed, I'm happier plodding about… Continue reading Snug as a bug in a rug
After chatting to the husband about old routines we used to have when we were younger, I have decided to go back to my old Sunday routine - cleaning!
