A Few Of My Favourite Quotes

September 23rd, 2014

If there’s one thing I love, it’s a good Pinterest quote. These are a few of my favourites but  you can check out my ‘Words To Live Life By’ board for more.

The grass is greener where you water it

You’re going to come across people in your life who will say all the right words at all the right times. But in the end, it’s always their actions you should judge them by. It’s actions, not words, that matter.

Thousands of candles can be lit from a single candle and the life of the candle will not be shortened. Happiness never decreases from being shared.

Life is like a camera. Just focus on what’s important. Capture the good times. Develop from the negatives and if things don’t turn out – just take another shot.

Eventually all the pieces fall into place. Until then, laugh at the confusion, live for the moment and know that everything happens for a reason.

A bird sitting on a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not on the branch but on it’s own wings. A;ways believe in yourself.

Scented Candles For Autumn

September 4th, 2014

I love candles. Love, love, love them! I have six just on the bookshelf in the living room.

Scented candles are perfect for uplifting your mood or helping you unwind. They can also change the feel of a room in an instant.

I have the Woodwick candle below and there is nothing nicer than lighting it after the kids have gone to bed. It’s really the only chance to appreciate the soothing crackling sound it makes!

Here are eight scented candles I think would be perfect for Autumn.

7. Lily Flame Coffee Galore

8. Shearer Candles Amber Noir

Which one do you think you would like best?

MIMM – Climbing Trees and Ice Cream

September 1st, 2014

Happy Monday!

Mine has been pretty marvelous so far. I was convinced, until 6pm yesterday, that the kids started back at school today. A quick check of the website showed it’s tomorrow. Now I get a bonus day with them AND everything is already laid out for the morning :)

We made the most of the weekend by taking the kids for a walk to the woods. This is where Matt spent most of his childhood!









Yesterday we took a drive to Holmfirth, aka Last Of The Summer Wine country.

I’m off to detangle two heads of curly hair and snuggle up with my babies to watch a film.

What are you up to today?
