Happy New Year

imageIt doesn’t seem like 5 minutes ago that we were all getting excited about Christmas, presents, turkey etc and now here we are, the start of a New Year already begun. I’m sure there were more than a few of us feeling a bit heavy headed this morning at whatever time we crawled out of bed. I had work today so I didn’t overdo things last night, to be fair, I rarely do. Drinking to excess and feeling awful for the next day is not my idea of fun, so I had a couple of ciders, a couple of G&T’s but not enough to make me regret things!! Control freak………never!

Blink and you’ll miss it

IMG_0386Why is it that the run up to Christmas begins in about August and we all spend so much time and effort and energy and money on preparing for it, and before you know it, you’re sat at home, not wanting to even hear the word turkey for another year and then it’s all over!

2015 Book Review


So I thought before the end of the year I’d just look back at all the books I’ve read so far since last Christmas and I was rather chuffed that I’ve got through 31 books this year, that’s a lot for me and it’s been so nice getting back in to reading as a relaxing and enjoyable pastime.

Christmas, Out and about

Christmas Cheer


It’s been quite a while since my last post but Christmas is now nearly upon us and I thought it time to write a new post. With only a week to go until Saint Nick swings into town, I’m feeling pretty organised.

Christmas presents were all purchased in one day a few weeks ago. I suddenly felt the urge to get it all done and dusted in one go so Amazon did quite well out of me then I headed into good old Norwich to do the bits I couldn’t do online. I’ve got to say it was very satisfying to get the list done, know where to get what and just get it sorted out quickly and efficiently. I guess that’s the trick, having a plan and sticking to it.

Birthday, Out and about

My 40th Birthday!!!


So it’s official, I am now the ripe old age of 40, I can’t say I was looking forward to it, I’ve never been a big fan of birthdays, well not my own anyway. I think 4 people I work with turned 40 this year, as did my husband a couple of months ago so my turn had to happen eventually but I’m clinging on to being the youngest 40 year old of the group and hoping I don’t look my age – feel free to agree!

Christmas, Cotswold Company

Christmas has arrived!

 Hi, so it’s been awhile as I honestly haven’t had much to write about, but this week we installed the new window display at work. I’ve always loved visual merchandising so getting to  change the window display is my idea of a great day. Continue reading “Christmas has arrived!”

Bake Off

Bake Off Final!!!!


So this week was the Great British Bake Off final, it has flown by this year with another great bunch of amateur bakers.

I thought they went easy on them with some of the tasks in this years final, iced buns, Mille Fois and layered cakes. For me! Nadiya was my favourite from early on. She had got stronger and stronger throughout the weeks, built her confidence and achieved star baker three times! Continue reading “Bake Off Final!!!!”

Out and about, Walks



Hi, remember me. It’s been ages, I know. The month just kind of got away from me. So what’s been happening? Well we went to see the live screening of The Rocky Horror Show ( I wonder why the word ‘picture’ was dropped ). Anyway we saw it at the Odeon in Norwich with our friends Rob and Anthony and it was BLOODY AMAZING. Lots of great guest narrators including Stephen Fry, Ade Edmonson and none other than Richard O’Brien!! Continue reading “Holibobs!”
