Life Lately

A collection of things that don't really fit into any sort of post but I wanted to share with you guys none the less!


Wilf took his first ever bike ride (with stabilisers of course) the other day. Just up and down our street but a reminder about how our little boy is growing up. He really is a little boy now, no longer a toddler for sure.


We are off on our Three Cities adventure at the end of the week. I can't wait to be back in Paris, it really is one of my favourite cities in the world! We were sent this beautiful print of the city by illustrator Jenni Sparks through Evermade, we've spent ages poring over the print and all it's little details. I can already see me adding some of her other city maps to my collection!


I've been adding more and more to my online shop including a favourite of mine..these unicorn money boxes!


What else?

I've been back and forth to London a fair bit lately, I visited the other day to attend the Ideal Home Show with Hammonds so I'll post properly about that soon.


The rest of our days have been hanging out at home and staying local. This is a silly selfie I took on the day I returned from the Home Show, I asked Wilf to pull a funny face and I can't stop laughing at this picture!

I'm really feeling like a spring clean so I finally got round to taking 3 bags of bits and bobs to our local charity shop which feels really good! We are planning a few changes to our home after our return from our trip and hopefully to change up our garden too. I have to say I get itchy fingers when it comes to interior design so I love to move things around every now and again!

That's it for things lately I think! Thanks for checking in! xx

Wishing you a fabulous trip to Paris... it's also one of my favourite places to visit. Loving the print - the detail is fabulous.

Our guinea pig is called Jenny Sparks. Not after the artist though. Comic book character according to Noel, who knows everything about comics ever.


Still, made me chuckle.

I love the look of that map, very sweet. And oh how grown up Wilf looks on his bike! Crazy that they're now little kids, isn't it? x

What a great service, it must be a comfort to have familiar tv and a connection to your home country.

Adele Jarrett-Kerr said...

The unicorn money box is cool! I'm doing some spring cleaning and sorting out stuff in our home too. Just felt like time. Go Wilf on his bike!

Sarah Bailey said...

What an interesting sounding service - I'm sure it could really help a person feel more at home. x

Joanna Imran said...

We've used the Lebara SIM card before, as Hubby and I are both immigrants - they do provide a great value service to connect with family back home! I can't wait to know more about the tv service - we've just come back from Pakistan and God, I missed the British telly lol!

I love that print too! So lovely isn't it, I can't wait to get the restof her collection. x

Clare Nicholas said...

What a great service, I can't imagine how hard it would be not to speak the language yet have to go about daily life still. It's hard enough on a weeks holiday sometimes

Kara said...

The service sounds wonderful, we keep toying with the idea of emigrating

Erica Price said...

Sounds like a good way of helping people settle in and feel at home.

Cherished By Me said...

What a great idea, it must be so hard so I am pleased there is this foundation to help make it slightly easier for migrants.

Laura Rocksteady said...

Oh how cute is that selfie pic of you and Wilf :) Have fun on your three cities trip - Paris is always amazing at anytime of the year

What a great idea, feeling settled and at home is so important, I felt discombobulated enough moving a few streets away into a new house, let alone to a different country!

Rachel | The Little Pip said...

Love that Paris map!

I haven't heard of Lebra before, but I bet they make a lot of difference to so many lives
