The reason for my blog silence recently is that I have been very busy working on my new branding and a new website, and it is now finally up and running!!! It has been a huge learning curve for me... Continue reading

I do really enjoy blogging, and I like reading back and remembering things I've done, but it is quite time consuming. That's why Instagram is so great - it is quick and easy. Thanks for stopping by my blog (and for the kitchen love!) See you over on Instagram!! Cathy XXX

Does anyone else suffer from it? I love reading other blogs, and I find so many of them really inspiring, but also at the same time I find it hard to write about me and what I'm up to. My... Continue reading

Well, the Easter holidays went with a swing and were over so quickly. We headed north to a cottage in North Yorkshire - somewhere I'd never been, but somewhere I will be going back to. We had a cottage on... Continue reading

I have been really making the most of the warm sunny days we have been getting recently, and I am feeling much more energised and motivated. It is amazing what a bit of sunshine can do to perk us up.... Continue reading

It's been a busy few weeks again - half term has floated by in a waft of family, meals, wine, walks, crochet, baking and the subtle hints that Spring is on its way... Bringing the sunshine in with 50p daffs...... Continue reading

I'm finding January a bit depressing. I'm sure that most people out there feel the same - the post-Christmas lull, the weather, the greyness, the cold, the no money because you spent it all on Christmas, the diet, etc etc.... Continue reading

Happy New Year! I love the change of year - it always feels like a fresh start, full of promise and hope for things to come. Despite always sobbing at midnight (regardless of how much alcohol has been consumed!) I... Continue reading

Although I have already had a week without having to go to school, Half Term has come at a great time for us all. We seem to have been getting wearier and wearier, and a week of lie ins, mornings... Continue reading

Hello my dear, I just found a button where I can reply directly to your comment (this technology stuff still catches me out sometimes!). Anyway, I just wanted you to know I did reply to your lovely message (above this one), as I don't think you were notified, and I didn't want you to think I had ignored you! Any joy with the reading resolution?! Cathy XX

Thank you for your lovely comment, Jo! That's really good advice about meeting up with people in a similar position, and I will certainly try to do that. I am lucky in that I love my own company, but also that I have a lovely set of friends who are always up for a cuppa, so when I am in need of a change of scene I will make sure I always ring one of them! As you say, it isn't all about the money, it is the satisfaction and enjoyment, and that's what is really exciting me about it all. Cathy XX

Thank you, Heather, for your lovely message. I am looking forward to this new period in our lives - and getting quite excited about what lies ahead. I hope you find time to read more - let me know if you come across any good books! I am very well and happy, as I hope you are. I'm in your neck of the woods next week for half term - I do miss not living in Leics, so am looking forward to being back. Cathy XX PS I hope you get a message to say I've written this - I'm not sure if my replies get flagged to you or not? X

I can't quite believe that today is the last day of September. Time is whizzing by, probably because I am trying to squeeze so much into it. Life is such a juggling act - children, husband, dog, housework, my job... Continue reading

Hello! It's been a while! Life really has the habit of taking over and making me busy, sadly leaving very little time for blogging at the mo. We had a lovely Summer - spent with family, friends, then just us.... Continue reading

Please tell me that those few days of glorious sunshine weren't the only truly Spring-like days we are going to see. My garden is beginning to bloom, I put my boots away, dug out my Summer wardrobe, made salads and... Continue reading
