I haven't blogged for ages, not since January if you don't count my last post, which was in the works for a while. I'm not up to a lot at the moment because I am having Chronic Fatigue problems.
We went to Will's mum's house for a couple of nights for New Year's Eve. In probably uninteresting news, I've decided to stop straightening my hair and try letting it go curly again. Even though I don't actually like that look on myself. Relaxing it is hard these days as my sister is … Continue reading Xmas and NYE round-up

We had our annual Halloween Extravaganza! I've been waiting all year for it, and now it's happened, so I feel weird about it because … Continue reading It’s the most wonderful time of the year!

I actually spent surprisingly little money, helped by the fact that in The Range, TK Maxx, and Tesco, they didn't really have a lot of Halloween stuff.

This is something I've had on a "things to try" list in my notebook this year, … Continue reading Adventures in bread
We had our 2nd barbecue at the weekend, just in time for the end of summer. Well, August has suddenly decided to kick things up a gear just as we're all looking forwards to Halloween, and it's now really hot and sunny even though most of the month actually wasn't. It's 27°C as I type … Continue reading Ending summer

On Monday it was Freya's 8th birthday and the 6th anniversary of us adopting her, so on the Saturday we had our usual barbecue. It was really nice, on a big hexagonal blanket with a proper table for stuff and a lot of loungers (some of which didn't survive the whole day).We gave Freya a … Continue reading FreyaFest ’17

It is one of the two most important events of the year, second only to Halloween. And my closest friends understand the significance of BOTH of these … Continue reading Eurovision 2017
