Spotted! It’s A Gorgeous Hare Mug. *happy face*

It’s no secret round here that we love a good mug. Possibly less well-known is that I have a bit of a thing for hares. Especially mad-eyed, scrappily visualised artistic ones (the March Hare I spotted in this post currently hangs on my bedroom wall, making me smile every day). So letting out a little “Oooh!” at this hare mug when I saw it on Etsy wasn’t terribly surprising. Isn’t it a beauty? I love the...

Win a £130 Tea Bundle (that’s 400 cups of tea!) from Adagio Tea. Oh yes.

Tea. It’s not secret round here that I love the stuff. And like so many things in life, I’ve grown a little more selective in my old age. Once I thought tea only came in packs of 240 small white bags (unless you were at Granny’s house.

Facing The Possibility Of Death – Grown Up Life Is Hard.

Why don’t we see ourselves as adults? I don’t know about you, but when I realise I’m doing something considered ‘grown up’ I do look around, feeling a fraud, wondering when the grown ups will show up to come handle it for me… And yet. Here I am. A 40-something mother to four, running a business, paying the bills, clearing a mortgage… It appears Grown Up-ness was sneaking up on me while I was busy...
