End of May update
So, another weekend of hard graft with good friends. This week I'm thanking, Dave, Ben, Laura and John for services above and beyond in sanding and concrete laying. The builders who have arrived to start the bathroom think the concrete is amazing and want t...

We've just had a lovely weekend staying with John and his parents in Kent. We started off with a mooch around Canterbury, and a delicious early dinner at Cafe Mauresque , which we love. Then we went off to the Collyer Ferguson concert hall to watch John and...

Desert Island Book
Carla over at London is for Living is asking what your Desert Island Books would be. I'm a book lover, and I read voraciously. I can read a book in a day, and love the ferry ride home from Normandy as it's a chance to swallow a whole book. So books to take ...

NaBloPoMo 26 - skating
I was a deprived child. My parents never took me ice skating. Ok, so not really deprived, but I like to tease my parents on this one. Tom took me skating at Winchester Cathedral. As I clung to the barrier, going round in slow tedious circles for an hour, te...

NaBloPoMo 11, 12, 13 - sometimes things are better
I had two working from home days today. Which were peaceful and helpful after all the travelling I've had to do. Roll out of bed on to the laptop. No excuse for not blogging though! I've been working on making some craft tutorials for our social media conte...

Room based progress and parties
So the bedroom has gone from magnolia to white. We had some very helpful friends come to paint, including Jon, Ben, Laura, Robin and Olivia. Tom tried some different base paints to see if we could even up the texture a bit, including the Polycell Basecoat a...

Whiskey and ginger ale jelly - a recipe from my mum
My fantastic desserts (even if I do say so myself) from the weekend have prompted some pudding based chatter with my Mum on Facebook. Here is the recipe for her delicious sounding Whiskey and Ginger Ale Jellies. Think I'll be making these for the housecooli...

The importance of traditions
I'm dying of a sore throat and flu like symptoms. It's clearly punishment for a lovely weekend. First a trip to the mother in laws farm, with a walk around a sunny end of autumn Stourhead, and a fun curry at the local curry house. Then to my parents for the...

NaBloPoMo 24 25 - report
Today there is nothing to report from yesterday other than a cream tea with colleagues and knitting and talking house buying with Laura into the evening. Today I am struck by a vivid memory of using the sixth form computer room in the silence in free period...

NaBloPoMo 9 - stuck in the middle
Well. Today Tom and I managed to drag ourselves out of bed in time to give two of the older members of our church congregation at lift to the early service. We stayed to help with the AV in the second service, and I managed to knit a fair bit on my secret s...

Well, you know how we go with phases of obsession here. It was fairies a while back and now it's Star Wars. I thought it was worth putti

I had my hair cut here on 28/11/2007 and was exceptionally pleased with the experience. From the massage chair that accompanied the wash, to the care and attention to detail during the cut, the staff were wonderful. I ask for a 2 inch trim, layers and feathering and got exactly that.
