Back in the day I used to really enjoy perusing the Sunday papers with a cuppa. Those days seem to have disappeared with all the hockey match early starts. However my mum was staying the weekend and she’s a lover of all the rags, so this week I had the chance to catch up with… Read More I want it because I can’t get it ……..
We’ve got the one goal which totally dominates the garden and trashes the grass so what could be better than the addition of a second goal to complete the set and ensure that the whole garden is now used exclusively as a football pitch. My delight at the generosity of my mother-in-law is indescribable! So… Read More What a wonderful new addition, not ……
This is not my usual style and when I first saw it on the M&S website I thought it was a top. However I think this is a brilliant black dress for just £39.50. You need to size up, I’m wearing a 14 but I think I’d be a bit more comfortable in a 16.… Read More Surprisingly good LBD but don’t forget your Spanx …….
There’s no getting away from it, I have a tonne of clothes. In the main I get my fair share of wear out of them and do try and calculate the ‘cost per wear’ of everything I buy in the hope that I can create lots of different outfits from a single purchase. However there… Read More In the spirit of saving some pennies ……
We all arrived feeling a bit rough but 6 days in Sweden seems to have sorted us out. We’ve had a brilliant time. For once the weather was with us so the snow fell and there was plenty of the white stuff for sledging and more importantly skiing. I last skied about 14 years ago… Read More That feels better …….
Well they turned up a week late and then proceeded to scaffold the whole house when we’re only adding a bedroom on at the back. We literally came out of our front door and couldn’t even squeeze out as we we’d been ‘scaffolded in’. I swore over anything that moved that I’d never mess around… Read More Scaffolders, scaffolders all around …..
Eldest son down with the lerggy and I think daughter is soon to follow which is a bit of a concern as we’re off to Sweden on Friday. So after the usual argument with Mr White about who’s job is more important, I lost and am Nurse Nightingale for the day. And I have to… Read More The pox has arrived chez White …….
This weekend was meant to be a quiet one, meant being the operative word. You know when things are chugging along quite comfortably and out of nowhere it all goes tits up. For us its been the thorny old issue of schools for our eldest who’s in Year 7 – thought it was all… Read More It was all going swimmingly when …….
My recent posts have been looking at checked tops and also the latest offerings from M&S. So today its a combination of the two – black and white check from Marks. I tried this M&S wrap poncho affair on a while back but didn’t buy because of the £65 price tag, just didn’t know if… Read More A combination of the two ……..
Seems its a scratch that I can’t stop itching. Gingham, checked, plaid; call it what you will but a check shirt is a perennial staple which is brilliant for layering and so an excellent purchase for between seasons, which is what it’s just starting to become (might be slight premature on this). My nature I’m… Read More Checking it out ………
