Beautiful Bedding Makes Me Happy!

Disclaimer: I haven't been paid to write this post, I just truly do love bedding, I love looking at it and talking about it :)

OK, I admit it! I'm addicted to beautiful bedding :)  I can't help it, no, let me re-phrase that.  I don't want to help it :)  Our lives are so busy, too many activities to fit into too short a day, every day, so when I go to bed at night I want it to be welcoming, cozy and most of all I want it to be beautiful :)

I thought I'd post some of my favourite new looks from the bigger retailers.  Just because they're lovely and deserve to be seen :) Your bed really is the focus for your bedroom and you honestly don't have to break the bank to have a beautiful bed.

Super Fast, Super Easy, Beef Bolognaise Bake!

Hello again :) Thank you for dropping by :) Apologies for not having posted for almost a week, life stuff got away from me unfortunately.  I thought I might post one of my favourites mid week meals which is so easy, and so fast to make that it will probably take about as long to read this recipe than to make it :) So, dear gentle reader, why not grab a cuppa, put your feet up and do let me know what you think :)

Super Fast, Super Easy Beef Bolognaise

I love this recipe because it takes no time at all to whip together & pop into oven. On nights when I'm working late shift, this leaves me time for a quick shower & into jammies just in time to take it out of the oven and enjoy :)

Delicious Bacon & Egg Bake

Hi Honeys 
Last night I made one of my Hubby's favourites for dinner, it's been a favourite for so many years, looks so impressive when you serve it (this must have taken you ages...er no 😊) only has 3 ingredients and it's so fast & easy to cook it shouldn't even count as cooking :) 

Now I said this oven bake, because that's what it is honeys, has 3 ingredients, but really it can have two, just the bacon & eggs, or it can have as many as you want!  I've been known to add sliced tomatoes, or to miss out the bacon and instead use grated cheese and chopped onion gently folded into the beaten eggs and then baked.  It's basically an egg base you can add whatever you like to :) Be inventive, experiment, find your favourites :)

Fastest, Easiest Bathroom Cabinet Re-Do!

Hello again :)

Can I begin with a before & after photo please? I know it spoils the surprise a little but I'm so excited I can't help it :)

Bathroom cabinet re-do:  Before & after.

Well, now that I've gone and ruined the surprise lol, back to the beginning :) So, last summer, we bought two little wooden units for our teeny tiny bathroom, in the hopes of extra storage for the far too many toiletries and my ever growing Soap & Glory collection :) Well,  Hubby set about putting them together and I just fell in love with them :)

My latest blog experiment & Free Printable!

Hi Honeys
I've always loved words.  For as long as I can remember books have been my best friends. I spent my entire childhood being told "you'll ruin your eyes!" but luckily I had a wonderful Gramma who adored reading as much as I do and encouraged me by constantly buying me books :)  I've also always written. The written word is as important to me as the air I breathe and will be till my last breath. Goodness that sounded dramatic! Seriously though, I genuinely do love to write... hence this blog :)

I've been trying to figure out the basics of blogging these past few weeks and I'm having the most amazing amount of fun doing it, although hand on heart HTML is still tasking me :) Anyway, I'm learning as I go and each time I want to do something new here I have to figure out how to do it. That in mind, my latest experiment was how to add a link to a file to download from my blog.  So, here is my experiment. My very first ever printable :)

It's a poem I wrote a while ago, I've illustrated it with the cutest little fairy. I hope that you like it, if so, do feel free to download it for personal use (no Etsy use etc please) You can download the printable version (which is sized at 8x10 inches) here
Thank you for dropping by, do say hello in the comments section below :)  I hope you're having a great day honeys, till next time, sending heaps of hugs xx

Tantalizing Tuna Pasta!

Hi Honeys, 
OK, so the weather is still a little sketchy most days, but we're increasingly seeing the occasional glimpse of sunshine, fluffy clouds and blue skies. Naturally enough a bloggers mind turns to picnic foods :)  Absolutely top of the list for us is tuna pasta! Perfect for Picnics or a summer dinner with a crispy salad :)

There are as many recipes for tuna pasta as there are cooks who make it, everyone has their own little touches that make it original.  I thought I'd share our version here in hopes that you'll love it as much as we do :)
