Capturing My Memories

Since the invention of digital cameras, phone cameras and uploading pics straight to Facebook or Instagram, I miss the old fashioned excitement of using up a roll of film, taking it into a shop, waiting for it to be developed and see how great (or awful) the pictures I took were.

Creating Space At Home

Last week I wrote a post about staying safe while doing DIY round the house (you can read it here if you missed it), this week I wanted to chat about some really easy DIY projects you can do round the home.

At the moment we have several issues with trying to make our house look homely (in my eyes anyway):

Staying Safe Doing DIY

If you read my blog a lot, you might have seen I wrote a post recently about some of the home goals I want to achieve this year (if you’re new to the blog, then hi, and you can catch up here). I’m looking forward to getting started on the projects I have (you know, once the weather gets better); except for one major flaw in my plan. I’m so clumsy.

To be honest, when I got a NUTRIBULLET*, I thought I’d make a couple of smoothies and it would go in the cupboard to die. You know, like the rest of the crazy fads we all own; the toastie maker which is great till you have to clean it, the random popcorn maker you got one Christmas because you’re “difficult to buy for” and the good old cafetiere that no one has time for. Because hello kettle!

I didn’t expect that for the past month, J and I would actually be using it every day!
