That is a very pleasing result from a bunch of onion skins, a well-loved pillowcase and a bit of patience, I can see why you'd want to do some more x

It has taken me ages to write this post, partly because the days have been dark and dingy and so no good for indoor photography but mostly because my bedroom was a complete pig sty and I was too ashamed... Continue reading

Well the school half-term break has been and gone and we were getting back into term time routines when Toby came down with a vomiting bug. Poor Toby has had more than his fair share of illness this winter, perhaps... Continue reading

Having an autistic child in the family means that life is never predictable but this last week has thrown us a few extra loop-the-loops in roller-coaster ride. Monday: On Monday I had a call from school to say that Toby... Continue reading

So far Winter has been quite mild here, with only one hour long snow storm and a handful of days with frosty beginnings. Even so, it's been cool enough to warrant regular lighting of the fire and I've been keeping... Continue reading

After the coughs and colds that we all ungratefully received for Christmas I've been easing myself gently into this new year. Happily it's been years since I've been so ill and I count myself lucky on that front, but this... Continue reading

Hi Annie This is the big problem with this new law - the VAT threshold (in the UK £81,000) only applies for physical goods or electronically supplied digital services/goods sold only in UK/Rest of world. There is zero threshold for ANY European cross-border sales of electronically supplied digital goods and services, so a single sale of an automatically delivered pdf file to someone in another European country technically means that you have to VAT register, even if like me you are nowhere near the UK threshold. I am manually emailing my PDF files because HMRC have said that this constitutes human intervention thus exempting my sales. I recommend you read this if you want a fuller understanding: https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/vat-supplying-digital-services-to-private-consumers/vat-businesses-supplying-digital-services-to-private-consumers and also explore the EU VAT action website where they have more details: http://euvataction.org/ and please sign the petition above on the EU VAT action page if this issue affects you. I should also mention that the EU have plans to roll this out across sales of physical goods from as early as 2016. J x

It's rather dingy, wet and windy here today, so the best option is to snuggle up with some knitting, a hot cup of tea and some nice magazines. And these magazines are particularly nice for me to flick through because... Continue reading

The sad thing about the PETA campaign is that it tars everyone with the same brush but there are some very responsible, caring and ethical producers of angora yarn out there.
