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.

3. Ivyline Hot Chocolate

4. Cote Noire Caramel Au Beurre Sale

6. Yankee Candle Vanilla Chai

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?

MIMM – Parties, Sleepovers and More

August 4th, 2014

Happy Monday everyone!

I hope you all had a great weekend. I know we sure did.

I’m going to start by saying sorry for the quality of these pictures. I only had my phone to hand and it seems the lens needs a clean. I blame all the sticky fingers playing Hairy Letters!

Saturday saw us playing ‘cinema’. The kids car seats were in the house so we set them up as cinema seats, everyone had juice and popcorn and we watched The Three Musketeers* (it’s an old one but the kids are obsessed).

I took advantage of the quiet to make a start on a couple of custom orders involving these little guys. How adorable are they?!



Saturday afternoon we headed off to a birthday party and then took Ava to Grandad’s for a sleepover. My mum, sister and niece are on holiday at the moment so Ava and her Grandad had some quality time together. She got him up nice and early on Sunday to take her cousins bike for a quick spin (sorry E!).

How cute is she?!

We spent most of Sunday having a fairly chilled day. The boys went for a walk to the woods with Daddy where they climbed trees and threw sticks over the bridge. I don’t have any pictures but will try to share some tomorrow. We had tea with Grandad and then made our way home with three sleepy children. Perfect!

How was your weekend? Did you have any fun plans?
