Feeling festive... sniff

Friday, 30 November 2012

There must be something in the water because everyone I know seems to be feeling extra festive this year - me included. However, I've been struck down with the dreaded pre-Christmas sniffles and I'm determined not to let it ruin my excitement.

As part of starting this blog I'd like to try and exercise the creative part of my brain a bit more. I love crafts and baking. And pinterest! There are so many wonderful ideas on there that I would like to try. Given half the chance and an extra day in every week. Hopefully posting ideas on here and pictures of the final results will help inspire me. What better time of year to get out the glitter and ribbon? If anyone happens to read this and has any great Christmas crafts to share, please comment below. All inspiration gratefully received! *sniff*

Baby steps

Monday, 26 November 2012

Hello, guess the first post is always a tricky one.... but this is something I have wanted to do for a while. So here goes!

I have a wonderful little family of five - my husband and I, my two beautiful beanies (age 6 and 4) and a daft labrador called Bailey. With one more on the way! Baby, not labrador.

Look everyone, we're going to have a baby brother or sister!

I wanted a way to keep track of our busy lives and have something to look back on over time. The past few years have gone so fast and it's easy to forget all the lovely every day things that happen, so I'm hoping this will help. Plus, a hectic household coupled with baby brain... I have no chance!

If a few people enjoy reading along and sharing their lives with me too, all the better!

Oh, I'm Kate by the way :)
