We’ve been doing a load of clearing out at home, rejigging our house in anticipation of some visitors in March. It’s a good excuse to get organised, paint the hall and all sorts of other things we hadn’t gotten round to in the nearly three years we’ve lived here (I know, THREE years – some […]
New year, new me, etc, etc. Perhaps it’s slightly late to be saying that, a full 17 days in to 2018, but the intention is good. I haven’t been a regular blogger for the past couple of years, and was largely absent for most of 2017, preferring to hang out over on Instagram, mostly, for […]
Looking back on my year, it has been much busier than I expected, but that has been a good thing. I started it off with great excitement about the surprise New York trip I’d planned for Lee and I’m finishing it off with great excitement about what 2017 holds, as there are going to be some […]
Goats, street cars and the world’s best hot dogs. These are a few of my favourite things from our Cincinnati trip earlier this year.
It’s been a whole month since I retired! I can barely believe the time has gone so quickly. Perhaps if I wasn’t flat out at real work, I’d have noticed it pass. What have I done, apart from work down the TV salt mines for what feels like 27 hours a day? >> I’ve taken […]

Following on from my post last week about not quitting your day job, I wanted to highlight how it works for someone other than me. Looking at my local designer peers, I was drawn to Sally from Hand Over Your Fairy Cakes as I know that not only does she design the brightest jewellery around, […]
Honesty is the best policy, so they say, and honesty and transparency in small, indie business is something that you don’t see a lot of. So many one-man bands portray the image of “we” and “us” when it’s just one person in their pyjama bottoms all day at a laptop. I guess they feel that they […]
I am so bored of lunches eaten at my desk, another cardboard sandwich from the Co-op hastily stuffed down whilst working on something or other. Last night, I thought about what I really wanted to eat. I love ramen noodle soup and haven’t had any for eons. I could eat it every day. Plain-ish, sure, […]
