t’s been a scorching summer and hopefully you’ve all been enjoying the garden and keeping it in shape, despite the challenging conditions.
You might not believe it, what with all that snow and the ‘beast from the east’, but it’s officially Spring!
With loads of activities taking place in our area this February, there’s no excuse for sitting on the sofa. Yes, we know it’s cold and it’s tempting to just turn up the heating and switch on the telly.
How was your Christmas? Did you struggle to get everyone round the table? Did you have room for overnight guests? Was there a ‘post-sprout’ queue for the bathroom?
It’s easy to go crazy and spend a fortune on decorations at Christmas, turning your home into a riot of colour. But what if the traditional festive red and green palette isn’t your cup of mulled wine? Or what if you simply don’t have the space to put a huge tree and loads of baubles?
We love an excuse to decorate the home, even if it’s just for a day.
Autumn (or ‘Fall’) is widely celebrated in the US and we’ve certainly adopted the Trick or Treat Halloween tradition here in the UK.
Autumn seems to suddenly creep up on you – one minute you’re considering one last BBQ and the next you’re thinking the tan’s faded and there’s frost on the lawn. Is it too early to put the heating on?
You’ve been thinking about it for ages!
Every time you have to queue for the bathroom. Every time you have to cram another shirt in the already overcrowded wardrobe. When things get overheated in the kitchen while you’re trying to cook the family dinner.
