    RHS Hyde Hall Garden // Days Out

    A little while ago Neil and I took a day out to the RHS Hyde Hall Garden. Hidden away in the Essex country side this delightful garden full of wonderful plants and stunning views offers some wonderful walks and some slight educational information to boot. A  F L O R A L  H I S T O R Y Hyde Hall boasts a wide selection of stunning flowers and plants which if you are like me and struggle with hayfever, will take your breath away. Starting life as a small farm, was bought in 1955 by Dick and Helen Robinson who kindly donated their humble 24 acre land to the RHS in 1993. Hyde Hall Garden started to take life and grow into a further 364 acres of garden, farm land, restaurants and ponds. Which considering it started life a small farm is incredible. Thanks to the Royal Horticultural Society and a trust which was set up in the 1970’s and once the ownership had past hands over to RHS their work had began. Setting up large ponds for wildlife and creating the clever walkways which allow the visitors to walk around and enjoy the area. Hyde Hall Garden is… View Post

    Moving Home Dream Plans // Lifestyle

    AD –  Sponsored Content (Disclaimer) As you probably know if you’ve read my blog recently is that I have moved home, However I have a small plan for the future with my partner Neil and I wanted to share some of them with you. Hopefully some of my plans for moving home will inspire you to think of your own. F U T U R E  P L A N S When we do move in together than plan is to buy the house, at the moment I am renting a property, I have gone from a council house to private renting and now my decorating is limited. Which isnt to much of a big deal; however I used to have a lovely green features wall where my photos sat and I cannot do that now. I honestly miss my green wall in the living room, for now I am making do with accessories. Being able to make your home yours is a big thing for me. It adds personality into the blank canvas that is a new home, and while moving home can be incredibly stressful there is nothing I enjoy more than preparing and planning room designs and… View Post

    How to cope with Blogging Inadequacy // Blogging

    I think we all go through this at some point in our lives, but I’ve noticed that since I have been writing and sharing my life I experienced some form of blogging inadequacy. It is of course completely normal to feel this way, you cannot be perfect all the time which I feel needs to be said more often. Taking breaks away from my blog has been the main thing for me to do when I am feeling utterly useless. I sometimes feel useless because I have taken a break because, well I call myself a blogger but I sometimes barely blog. I know this is all my fault, I find it hard to juggle my time with being a parent, trying to find a job that works around being a parent and not being able to turn my blog into a job so I can work around it all. So it really got me thinking, just how much other people all also feel the same sometimes. How packing it all in and forgetting my blog exists is something I have seen many bloggers who I follow talk about sometimes daily and it prompted me to think of some great… View Post

    The Big Move // Home

    We did it! This is part of the reason why I’ve been almost dead on my blog for the past… month maybe?. My children and I have moved into a much bigger home and naturally things got a little crazy! We’ve gone from a tiny two bedroom ground floor flat to a huge (in my children’s eyes) four bedroom house and I’ll just say that moving is the single most stressful experience of my life. W h y  T h e  M o v e? The simple answer is, my children. For years now we’ve been in a two bedroom flat and even after we went from a family of five to a family of four, it still was cramped and we had no privacy or our own space. Gradually my son turned 11 and according to the council and their tenancy agreement it’s actually illegal for my 11 year old son to share a bedroom with his 9 year old sister, and along with the fact that during lockdown the council lovingly closed their housing list despite the fact that you could view and move home. We essentially are stuck. During first lockdown last year, not only was I… View Post
