I’m back and here’s a little catch up…

Branksome Chine beach

Gosh it’s been a long old time since my last blog post and I think the longer you leave it the harder it is to get back on and post.

But here I am after a little break… lots of things have happened, but it’s all good and I want to get back into posting regularly on my little blog.  I want this to be my on-line journal where all our special family memories, my thoughts, feelings and inspirations are captured and can be looked back on in years to come.

I received a notification from WordPress that my annual renewal was due, and if not renewed my blog could be deleted.  Yikes, all gone!  So this is what really prompted me into thinking ‘come on girl, get your act together, otherwise there’s gonna be a whole big part of your life missing on this ole blog of mine‘.  So here I am.

Christmas came and went in a flurry and we celebrated New Year’s Eve with some lovely friends.  It’ll soon be Easter and I’m feeling quite festive (if you can feel festive about Easter) and looking forward to a bit of time off with the family.  Oh and there’ll be chocolate eggs of course too – though not too many for me!!

But what I’m really looking forward to is – – – SPRING!  I can’t wait!  Leading on to some lovely summer months; pleeeease.

So looking forward to getting our garden sorted and being able to sit out and enjoy it – bring it on Mr Lovely Weather.

Last weekend we headed down to our beach hut and it was bliss.  It was a sunny day and in the shelter was really quite warm.  I even fell asleep in the sunshine on the balcony.  So, I’m planning to spend more time there this year.  If it’s looking like a nice day, I’m gonna pack up my bag, grab Kipster and head off for a chill at my little beach haven.  It’s such a beautiful place to be.

For now, I’ll leave you with some pics taken down at the beach to give us all a flavour of hopefully what is to come.

Hope you’re all good and wishing you a wonderful weekend.

It’s MrD’s birthday tomorrow, so we’re off out for a nice birthday breakfast.

Christmas flowers bouquet from Prestige Flowers

Prestige flowers

I love flowers.

I love seeing them grow in the garden, having them dotted around the home and I love seeing them when I’m out and about different places.

Some people don’t like cut flowers and prefer seeing them grow naturally, but I have to admit to loving them in the home.  They make me smile.  They make me happy.  I love the vibrancy of colours and the gorgeous perfumes that some flowers give off.

I’m one of those people who admits to buying myself a bunch (or sometimes two) each week when I do my food shop.  I love having fresh flowers for the week and if I’m lucky I can spread these out in different vases throughout the house.

So with a love for flowers, when I was given the opportunity to review a Christmas bouquet from Prestige Flowers from their Haute florist range I jumped at it.  Oooooh how exciting they were giving me a sneaky peek at what would be available on their site for Christmas.

I waited in anticipation for my delivery.

Prestige Flowers are one of the UK’s leading on-line florists and have a wonderful range of beautiful fresh flowers, plants and gift hampers.  You can do that thing too, where you add chocolates etc to the bouquet.  Before I received my flowers I popped over to their website, like you do, www.prestigeflowers.co.uk for a little looksee and I felt quite excited that I was going to be lucky enough to receive some of their fine flowers.

I wasn’t disappointed.

Prestige flowers

My bouquet, which was from the Haute Florist range, arrived in a huge cardboard box – it’s such a good idea to send them in a box because you know they won’t get damaged.

the flower box

They were wrapped in luxury paper and then popped in a bag all inside the sturdy box.  I was pleasantly surprised to see that the stems were very cleverly housed in a hydration pouch to keep the flowers as fresh as possible during delivery.  I’ve never seen one of these before and thought what a great idea it was.

Prestige flowers hydration pouch

The bouquet was held together with a small piece of ribbon, which I have to admit I thought would be red (it being a Christmas bouquet and all that) and perhaps tied a little bit more delicately… but never mind that’s a small detail I guess.

Prestige flowers

There was however a lovely little card which made me smile, as well as a very informative flower care guide.  I took the time to read the guide as I had kindly been sent the flowers, in order to prolong their life as much as possible.  It advised me to change the water daily, remove guard petals that surround the blooms (I didn’t know to do this before) and to re-cut the stems regularly.

Back to my lovely flowers…

Prestige flowers christmas bouquet

A very pretty Christmas bouquet that anyone lucky enough to receive, would, I’m sure, be very happy with.  It included red and pink roses, gorgeous vibrant lime green coloured shamrock blooms, some sort of green berries (sorry I’m no expert), with cinnamon sticks and pine cones… oh and topped off with a bit of sparkle – always a winner in my book!

Ooooh how lovely.

So, how long did my bouquet last?

Well I’m delighted to say that they lasted a good week and a half without me having to throw any of the stems away.  The berries are still looking lovely but the roses are finished now.

I will of course be keeping the cinnamon sticks and pine cones for crafting purposes at Christmas (haha look out for that one around Christmas time).

christmas berries

I’m not sure how much this bouquet is as it’s from their new Haute florist Christmas flowers range launching in December, but you can view their current Christmas flowers category on the Prestige website.  I can’t therefore give a value for money review, but they were certainly very pretty and if I received them at Christmas I would be a very happy girlie indeed.

Thank you very much Prestige Flowers.

Do you like cut flowers or prefer to see them growing in their natural habitat?

I was kindly sent this Christmas bouquet from Prestige Flowers for the purpose of review, but all thoughts are entirely my own and I will always be honest.

My Captured Moment #20

I always love linking up with Heledd who blogs over at Running in Lavender with her linky ‘My Captured Moment’.

This is where you link up with a photo or a series of photos that have captured a special moment in time – one or ones you haven’t and won’t ever forget.

It’s my favourite linky because it makes me think back to such special times and I always end up with a great big fat grin on my face.

Here’s this week’s…

My Captured Moment #20

Barnaby Christening day

Oh my goodness, my two gorgeous boys.

This was in fact MasterB’s Christening Day – he was ten months old and it was the most beautiful August day.

How totally scrummy does he look in his Christian Dior outfit (I still have this hanging in the wardrobe and don’t think I’ll ever be able to part with it).

He was an angel boy all day and didn’t cry once.  I think he was a little over-whelmed by the day though (check out his face) and certainly wasn’t too impressed when the vicar rather enthusiastically wetted his head.

We had a garden party after and everything went so smoothly – we couldn’t have asked for a nicer day.

It’s a wonderful memory and a perfect captured moment of daddy holding his boy.

Sweet peppers… our homegrown produce

Humour me on this one.

We’re very excited in our household by our homegrown produce this year.

It’s been pretty much an overall success and as complete novices at this game, we’re quite pleased with ourselves.

I give you … the teeny tiny sweet peppers!

Ta da!

sweet orange peppers

Oh yes and there’s some tomatoes thrown in there too.  They’re just finishing up but have been really nice (though not hugely prolific), but the tiny ones you can see were like popping sweeties in your mouth.

Back to the gorgeous peppers for now as that’s what this post is about.

sweet orange peppers

We haven’t tried growing peppers before, but thought we’d give it a go this year and bought our seeds back around April/May time I’m thinking.  We just thought, let’s have a go and see what happens.  We went for the smaller ones as they’re known for being sweeter and I can confirm that they definitely are.  They’re yummy.

sweet orange peppers

It occurred to us, that it’s purely down to when you pick them as to their colour and taste.  Sorry if that sounds obvious, but hey who knew?!

They start out green, turn yellow, then orange and then red.

We’ve really enjoyed these orange ones.

sweet orange peppers

We’ve loved having them in salads – they really are sweet and tasty – as well as in stir fry’s.

We’ll definitely be growing sweet peppers again next year.

Have you had any luck with a homegrown crop this year?  What’s grown the best for you?

My week in pictures #17

I haven’t posted one of my series of posts ‘My week in pictures‘ for a little while, but this week it’s back.

This is where, in a bid to take more photos, I set myself a little challenge to take at least one photo each day in an attempt to capture simple every day moments – those little moments that are sometimes forgotten and overlooked.  Sometimes the littlest things can actually turn out to be the most special.

I then choose one for each day and share them with you as a little peek into how my week panned out.  It’s my weekly visual feast.

I’m also over on Instagram where lots more of my daily photos appear – you can take a look at my gallery and follow me here if you like.

So without further ado, here’s last week’s commencing Monday, 21 September and photos go from top to bottom, left to right:

weekly collage

Monday:  It was a really lovely day, and I enjoyed a cup of tea in the garden.

Tuesday:  Despite being nice in the day, it chilled off in the evening and so we lit the wood burner.  Kipster enjoys lying in front of it – what dog wouldn’t?

Wednesday:  My cutie pie – Kipster.

Thursday:  Enjoying a glass of Blush – my fave tipple.

Friday:  The pooch and I enjoyed a gorgeous walk over at Upton Country Park which is local to us.  It was absolutely beautiful and you can read more about our walk here.

Saturday:  Again, another lovely day and here’s the mog enjoying a bit of sun-bathing.

Sunday:  My new bunny cushion!


Last week we had some really lovely weather again, hooray, although you can definitely tell it’s much more autumnal as it cools off in the evening.

Have a great week.

Barnaby and Kipster in the garden

How adorable are these two.

Kipster and Barnaby

These shots were taken after we had just picked up our gorgeous little Border Terrier puppy, Kipster.  We headed straight out to the garden to see if she would perform any little jobs for us (which of course she didn’t) and I just love how MasterB interacted with her.  It was so sweet to watch.

These really are special moments in time and I’m so glad we captured them.

Welcome back lovely sunshine…

This is a specific ‘This week I’ve loved’ post because it’s such an easy one…

This week I have totally and utterly loved the fact that the sunshine has come back.

Welcome back lovely sunshine…

Sat in the sunshine

Relaxing in the garden

Hooray!!

We’ve had the cushions back out on the garden furniture, been sitting out at all different times of the day enjoying the warmth of the lovely sun, enjoying the garden, having a drink or two and even eating lunch outside.  The windows and doors have all be open again and even though it’s cooled off in the evenings it’s been wonderful.

glass of Blush in the garden

Fantastic!  Except why did the sun have to wait until the children went back to school to make an appearance?

Never the less, it’s made me happy to be back out in the garden enjoying as much of the sun as I can.

Thank you lovely sunshine.

What have you loved this week?

Getting to the heart of the matter… #5

I haven’t done one of my ‘Getting to the heart of the matter‘ posts for a little while and there’s a reason for doing this one right now.

For those who read my blog regularly you’ll know I have a bit of a thing for hearts and they pop up everywhere in our lovely home and garden… the downstairs toilet, the utility, the bedrooms, lounge, even the greenhouse!

A while back I decided to count up how many we had, with a post accompanying each one along the way, giving away it’s little story (although I do have to admit to buying quite a few of them myself, ooops).

Anyway, time for my next little showcase… it’s this little beauty *sighs*

carved wooden heart

… well actually when I say little, it’s not, it’s really big and it’s totally and utterly GORGEOUS!!

wooden carved heart

She’s a block of wood carved by chainsaw into a heart – how awesome is that.

So the story behind this one is that I had spotted it when I was with my mum.  Two men were working at the side of the road on these amazing wooden carvings.  There was all sorts from massive bears, hares, mushrooms and other designs too, but this one day there was this one single heart stood there beaming at me and I swear shouting out my name.

We drove past with me screeching (my mum will verify this) ‘ooooooh look at that gorgeous heart, I love it‘.

I didn’t think too much more of it, until a few days later we drove past – – – and it was gone.

That was that.  Or so I thought.

Fast forward to this weekend just gone and my very naughty mum completely and utterly surprised me by leading me to the back door where she was stood waiting for me… *jaw drops*

heart with a bow

Little did I know she had gone back the next day to get it for us (I say us as obviously this wasn’t just for me but for MrD and myself who both equally love hearts *crosses fingers and toes*).  It was supposed to be being kept for Christmas but she decided instead to give it to us early as a ‘thank you’ gift for a recent holiday we all went on.

You can imagine my reaction – yup tears!

For the moment she sits beautifully in front of a set of table and chairs we have at the far end of the garden that gets the last bit of sun for the day.  I’m not sure if this is where she will end up, but for the moment I love that every time I look out of the kitchen window I see her sitting there all proudly.

And she’s all mine (well and MrD’s too of course).

carved wooden heart

Whilst taking these pictures in a rare moment of sunshine, the mog decided to get in on the action bless her.

the mog and the heart

Thank you darling mum.

What’s in our greenhouse…

I’m loving our greenhouse.

We’ve never had one before, so it’s a bit of a novelty to be honest.

I should start out by saying ours isn’t what you’d call a normal or traditional kind of greenhouse.  Yes, we do grow things in it and have had some quite good successes, but it’s turned into a bit more than just a glass house for growing seeds and tomatoes etc.  In fact it’s almost a mini-craft room.

Here’s why…

It’s a great place for storing and displaying our array of painted pebbles.

painted pebbles

I mean after all, where else are they going to go?

painted pebbles

We collect interesting (and good sized) pebbles and shells wherever we go.  You can do all sorts with them, as well as just stacking them and feeling them.  I’m a very touchy feely kind of person and love the feel of smooth pebbles; it’s very therapeutic.

stacking pebbles

I just love stacking pebbles.

I was determined when we moved to our current house three years ago, that the greenhouse wouldn’t be just any old boring greenhouse and would house lots of lovely things.  This includes my collection of bottles – again, where else would they go?  I love interesting and different bottles and keep them if we’ve had a bottle of wine that’s come in a nice shaped bottle.  Friends also save these for me as they know it’s something I like to keep.  MrD is delighted about this as you can imagine.

collecting bottles

I love my boxes for all my bits.  I repeat my bits as MrD is not allowed to touch anything that lives in these.  He has a habit of taking things and not putting them back where they belong which does become rather annoying.  Especially when you know you have that little pair of garden scissors for cutting flowers and they’re not there!  Aaarrgghhhh!!

the greenhouse

On display in the greenhouse is also some clay work that took place at last year’s Larmer Tree festival – MrD made me this gorgeous flower and MasterB attempted a pot.  Hmmmm it’s a bit worse for wear I’m thinking.  The plan was to paint these, but not sure they’re now in a fit state to be painted, and anyway I rather like them as they are.

Pottery

painted plate

Now of course everyone knows that every greenhouse HAS to have bunting … it may be a little grubby (well it is a greenhouse you know) with spots of algae and a bit sun-bleached, but it still adds a pretty touch.  A lovely friend of mine has offered to make me some new bunting for the greenhouse so once that’s up I’ll show you a picture.

greenhouse bunting

For those of you who read my blog regularly you’ll know I have a deep seated love for hearts so a few hearts pop up in the greenhouse too.

hearts

Oh yes and the mog obviously has a bed out here too – she spends most of the daytime out here.  If I was a cat I probably would too; what could be better than chilling out in the sunshine with pretty ‘things’ all around you *sighs*.

hearts

This glass flower sun reflector was given to me by a friend and I thought this was the perfect place to hang it – it gets a little bit of draft from the window and twinkles in the sunshine.

glass flower

We do actually have proper living things growing in our greenhouse too – yup, edible things too!

We had a successful crop of cucumbers and tomatoes last year, which we have repeated this year.  And new to this year is small sweet peppers – we are yet to try any of these, but I can’t wait.

There’s nothing better than eating homegrown – it’s just the best.

homegrown

I love our little greenhouse, but writing this post has made me realise I need to give it a bit of a tidy up… ooops, I’m on it.

Do you have a greenhouse?  What’s in yours?  Is it conventional or are you more like me and like to put a little twist on it?

Welcome to my series of posts ‘My week in pictures‘.

This is where, in a bid to take more photos, I set myself a little challenge to take at least one photo each day in an attempt to capture simple every day moments – those little moments that are sometimes forgotten and overlooked.  Sometimes the littlest things can actually turn out to be the most special.

Here’s last week’s commencing Monday, 17 August and photos go from top to bottom, left to right:

my week in pictures

Monday:  My girl, Kipster, snuggled on my lap – it was cold so we had the fluffy throw over us.

Tuesday:  Flowers from the garden and my feeble attempt at growing sweet peas this year.

Wednesday:  MasterB being silly in Giraffe whilst we wait to go see our film.  This, incidentally, was just before he knocked the whole glass over!

Thursday:  The photos on top of the piano were treated to a dust off.  Ahh that’s better you can see them all better now.

Friday:  My gorgeous surf dude down at the beach.  It was the Bournemouth air show this weekend and luckily Friday and Saturday were nice days so we headed straight down to the beach hut.

Saturday:  Sand. Beach. Beach hut. Sun. Shells. Happy.

Sunday:  Scrummy brunch.


Not a bad week considering it was a real mixed bag weather wise.  Can’t believe that one night we actually lit the word burner.

Have a great week ahead.

Then I choose one for each day and share them with you as a little peek into how my week panned out.

I’m definitely now taking more photos each day which is a really good thing.

So, here’s last week’s commencing Monday, 3 August and photos go from top to bottom, left to right:

How the week looked

Monday:  Our boiler packed up on us and we were without hot water for a couple of weeks… good job I kept up the old gym membership eh?  Monday, was the day of the new boiler being fitted and rather than take a photo of the new shiny boiler (that would be a tad boring) I thought I’d share this one with you.  I’m sure you can feel my excitement coming out of this picture.  I was indeed a very happy lady!

Tuesday:  We popped down to the beach early evening.  It was rather breezy but fab down there with lots of kite surfers doing their thing.

Wednesday:  We had a trip to the wonderful Donkey Sanctuary in Sidmouth, Devon where MasterB sponsors a donkey.  This is him stroking Walter his adopted donk.

Thursday:  Chill out time in the garden… bliss.

Friday:  I love getting my nails done and this time I chose a new colour for my nails.  I’m quite liking it for summer.

Saturday:  It was a beaut of a day and we went to the beach hut.  This was me clearing up at the end of the day.

Sunday:  Breakfast in the garden.


We saw quite a bit of sunshine last week which I love … it always make me feel so much happier and I think photos come out so much better too.

So that was my week last week – I hope you enjoyed the little peek.

Have a great day.

So, without further ado, here’s last week’s commencing Monday, 6 July and photos go from top to bottom, left to right:

weekly view

Monday:  Our olive trees have gone completely mad this year… we’re giving them a good feed and they’re obviously enjoying the lovely hot weather.

Tuesday:  The mog on the bed first thing in the morning…

Wednesday:  I had a lovely day out to Bridport with some friends and we visited some quirky vintage shops.  I came across this gorgeous seat that would sit perfectly in our hallway.  However, MrD disagrees and doesn’t think getting rid of what is already in the hallway and is perfectly adequate is necessary.  *sighs and swoons over lovely seat*

Thursday:  Our 18th ‘going out’ anniversary and I arrived home to beautiful flowers and a bottle of Prosecco.

Friday:  Our first cucumber of the season – someone’s happy.

Saturday:  Early evening sat with a glass of wine and the mog decides to join me.

Sunday:  The sky … a view from the garden.


The weather wasn’t so nice last week as the previous one, but I still managed to take some nice photos.

I hope you like them.

How did your week pan out?

Monday:  It was time for a little sit down and a cup of tea out of my adorable Liberty London mug.  Tea tastes soooo much better in a lovely china mug.

Tuesday:  Awwww a rare moment indeed.  The pup, Kipter, and the mog, Dilly seen lounging in the sun together.

Wednesday:  Flowers dotted around the home – love these gorgeous pink carnations.

Thursday:  The mog showing off in the sunshine.

Friday:  MrD enjoying a rather nice beer in the garden – looking very pleased with himself too.

Saturday:  MrD and I enjoyed some ‘us’ time and popped down to Sandbanks to take in the view – stunning.

Sunday:  An extremely tired cub.  MasterB was on cub camp from Friday evening through to Sunday afternoon.  He had a brilliant time and was completely and utterly exhausted at the end of it.


We had some wonderful weather last week which makes life feel sooo much better.  Long may it continue.

Have a great week.

Thursday:  Chilling in the garden with my Red mag.

Friday:  It was a dull start to the day, so nothing to do, but admire my flowers at breakfast.

Saturday:  BBQ time!!

Sunday:  A friend of Kipster’s, Ted, celebrated his 10th birthday with a party!!


All in all a lovely week was had.  I hope you had a good one too.

Until next time.

Sometimes it’s the simplest things…

Sometimes it really is the simplest of things that can bring an awful lot of pleasure.

We’ve had some really lovely weather this week and the doors and windows have been open – I love that; letting the fresh air fill the house and making us feel more in touch with the outside.

I’ve been pottering in the garden more (yes I know I’m showing my age, but hey I’m loving it) and enjoying sitting out with a drink and we’ve even eaten outside too.

A lovely blogging pal of mine, the gorgeous Ali who blogs over at My Life My Love and lovely Steph at Diary of a midlife mummy made me think about the every day simple things more by launching a joint blog linky called ‘This Week I’ve Loved‘.  It’s all about the every day moments that actually you quite enjoyed – things that sometimes you take for granted and don’t give a second thought to.

One of those moments this week was this …

cup of tea

A cup of tea sat in the garden before work.

How lovely was that.

It was incredibly warm for before 8am in the morning and it was so quiet and peaceful sat there enjoying my nice cup of lady grey tea.  I enjoy drinking out of bone china and this is my first cup of tea morning mug, which a dear friend of mine gave me  as a birthday present and I rather like it.

The other side of my mug says;

I often dream that my life is just as it is now…

Only I have well-behaved hair and I live in Paris.

How funny; she knows me so well.

So it’s nothing mega exciting I’m talking about, just an every day moment that I really enjoyed and felt grateful for.

Thanks Ali and Steph for reminding me of this.

Have a great day.
