It Was Cement To Be

I’ve lived in this lovely little house for over 4 years now, which is crazy considering I’ve moved house nearly every year from the age of 18 to 25 (which is a RIGHT pain when you have to complete paperwork and it asks for your address for the last FIVE years)! More to the point,…

Know Your Onions

Apparently ‘know your onions’ is a well known phrase? I’ve never heard of it until now, but I enjoy it.  I’ve also never grown onions before, so a first for a few things in today’s post! Along with my onion sets, I tried my hand at garlic too. This was really exciting for me because…

Summer Love

I say summer love, but I’m having a real love-hate relationship with the garden at the moment. I’ve reached a super busy period of the year work-wise, so getting out in the garden is proving tricky. On top of that, I went off to GLASTONBURY festival (capitals needed) for a week and there happened to…

Cut ‘n Come Again

Summer days are coming! I love day dreaming about barbecues, pitchers of Pimms and bowls of healthy salads that are so close to becoming a daily reality. Work is well under way in my garden (and in my home with all my growing seedlings on the windowsill) in prep for some quality time out there…

Plotting

Spring is in the air! It’s so lovely to see everyone’s mood boosted from the sunny weather and longer daylight hours we’ve started experiencing! I’ve had such a busy schedule since January hit and some projects have started to finish, so now I’ve finally got some down-time before it gets crazy again with my new projects. Therefore…

Newbies

This year has launched into full swing-  no messing around. I’m working hard on all things dance and feeling great though. The weather has been so cold but so many days have been sunny and fresh – perfect winter weather in my books. Therefore I’ve been craving a day when I’m not working and I can…

New Year Resolutions

2017! It’s come around quick and I can honestly say this is the first year I’m really motivated to achieve big things. Last year saw exciting changes such as moving in with my boyfriend, starting a new job and setting up amazing projects for my dance company. A few things I’m hoping to tick off…

Indoor Living | Pt 2

Happy New Year folks! Last year was a pretty decent one for me, with loads of changes, new experiences and chapters starting up! However, one chapter remaining open was my Indoor Living post, so here’s part 2 as promised. Hopefully you all have some pennies left over from Christmas, or have a few vouchers to…

Autumn Appetite

Have I mentioned how much I love Autumn? Seeing all the orange, yellow and fiery red leaves falling and covering the ground is the best. On top of that you have Halloween, Pumpkin Spiced Lattes from Starbucks and big jumpers to snuggle up in. It’s also the time of the year where you start to…

A Year of Growing

This time last year I was just starting this blog – so much has changed and I cannot believe it’s been a whole year! I started this blog to keep a visual record of the happenings in the garden from when I moved in (as it was such a wreck, mainly concrete wreck), and I’ve loved…

Tomato & Bacon Soda Bread

Once again this year I have an abundance of tomatoes to use. As I decided to grow from seed this year I very much over did the amount of tomato plants I needed. I ended up giving away several to friends and neighbours and still ended up with 9; 3 varieties. Last year I was…

Trending Foliage

From reading around recently, it appears this year seems to be all about the foliage! Lucky for me I had a bunch of gorgeous shrubs in my garden which are all about showing off their colourful and cool foliage already. Who knew I could pick up on gardening trends! One of them is my Hosta ‘Guacamole’, it’s…
