Things That Are Making Me Smile

I have been so useless of late.
No blogging, minimal Instagramming, quite a lot of doing nothing really.
As a mum, I am enjoying the lazy mornings but I cannot lie, I am quite keen to get them back at school/college (such a bad person).
I am sick of making cheese toasties...dropping off/picking up and the ridiculous amounts of washing.

Sorry to moan, I love them all dearly...most of the time ;-0

Luckily for me, there are a few things that are making me smile through the pain.

love these ever changing shelves

mother made me a patchy blankie

I treated myself to some new Washi tapes

quite enjoying old cans

Maurice has been organised to within an inch of his life

thrifted jumble sale fabrics

colourful vintage kiddo cupboard stuff

gorgeous, very personal blocks from this lovely lady

my funny boy and his snake (they are inseparable)

I hope my pics made you smile too and I am very much planning on putting a bit more effort in on this here blog.
Don't hold me to that though will you?


  1. I too have been absent from my blog for several weeks life seemed to have gotten in my way of my blog. Your photos did make me smile especially the cat and the stuffed snake, priceless. Looking forward to more of your posts.

  2. I also used to wish the school holidays were shorter so don't feel bad, at least you have a tidy Maurice...nice buckles. EE xx

  3. It is hard to get motivated during the school holidays when you are being stretched in so many directions. I always love pictures of your very lovely and unique home.

  4. 'Kan-U-Go' - I remember loving that as a girl although I couldn't tell you a thing about it now - and is the 'E' card from that or a similar game called 'Lexicon'? Aaaah the days before t'internet! I'm feeling thoroughly unmotivated at the moment - must be something in the air x Jane

  5. Well lots of lovely things there to make you smile! We're loving our summer hols this year and I'm not really looking forward to September, however I know the first day I have the house to myself, I will love it! :) x

  6. Well these photos definitely made ME smile! ;)

  7. Aw, lovely photos. I love seeing what's in other people's houses, I'm very nosy!

  8. Your cat and his snake are a match made in heaven! so cute. I too have been a bit lacking in the blogging dept recently, must try to get a bit more organised/motivated. Have been trying to get a bit more active on Instagram after joining over a year ago and posting virtually nothing. Ho hum. x
