A special Ruby wedding celebration

Can you imagine being married for forty years to the love of your life? That’s the dream that my parents have lived, and I knew we needed to commemorate it in style. Over the last few months, planning this party has basically consumed me. From figuring out how to keep it as a surprise for […]

Bertie – the goodest boy

This is an incredibly difficult post to write, so please bear with me. A few weeks ago, we saw a plea for help from a lady who’s mother had Alzheimers and was going to be moved into a home. They had arranged for her mother’s 13 year old border collie, Bertie, to be rehomed, but […]

Mum’s Birthday 2020

This year, to celebrate Mum’s birthday, I wanted to host an intimate afternoon tea at home for our immediate family. It had to be intimate because our flat is pretty small and we simply just don’t have the space to host more than 6 people comfortably 😫 The space constraint means that I don’t host […]

Blue Monday 2020 💙

Blue Monday is a completely made-up phenomenon, apparently signifying the most depressing day of the year. It’s celebrated on the third Monday after New Year, when you’ve been without a pay cheque for weeks on end, and the afterglow of the festive period has completely worn off. Whether or not Blue Monday is scientifically the […]
