This Week......


I have tried to catch up on mountains of washing.


Tidied up (at last)


Dan sold his old turntables (quite an emotional time for him) and bought a posh, grown up turntable.


I have eaten Nutella on toast every single day. This must stop!


Bertie has played with his little kitchen (which is nicer than our actual kitchen). I’m quite jealous.


Grandpa Cat and Babette started hanging out....A little awkward at first, but you know, they’re getting used to each other.


It has been freezing, so extra blankets on the sofa have been super cosy :)


And there’s Bertie (with his usual serious face) having just woken up - enjoying the blankets - I promise you he is enjoying the blankets, that’s just his face!

Have a great weekend friends and thanks for stopping by this week! x

    1. Hello, thank you. The blankets are from Ikea and Monki (the Monki one is the one on top and it is on sale at the moment i believe, so go and grab one!)

  3. Looks like a busy week! I love your new banner and visual on your blog. I'm into pastel colors too :)
    And it's true, Bertie's kitchen is great (where did you get it? I like that it's not a "girl kitchen" for once... you know...)
    Dan's turntable looks amazing!
    And Nutella, well, I know what you're talking about ▲▼

    Have a lovely weekend Kerry ♥

  8. I am just about to tuck into some chunky toast with nutella as my Friday breakfast treat! Could easily eat it everyday though! And washing, ack, where does it come from, surely we don't wear that many clothes each day! Enjoy your weekend!

    1. Yay to Nutella on toast. I think I should probably keep it for a Friday treat or something like you too. That’s the way to go. And the washing...I know! Where does it come from? Enjoy your weekend too.

  10. Bertie's expression is just like Ru's! So funny and glad I'm not the only one with a serious boy! Love the kitchen too-tis far nicer than ours aswell x

    1. Hehe, yes Bertie is a serious one. We’ve always had to work quite hard at getting smiles and laughter from him....which of course makes it so much nicer when her does in many ways. Apparently I was the same! And Ru too, another serious chap. I’m looking forward to hearing baby news!

    1. Thanks Jo :) Yes, the tables belonged to my husband’s parent in the 70s, so Dan grew up with them. We have these and their old Ercol dining table and chairs now. Love it!

    1. Thank you :)

      Correct! That’s exactly the way it’s headed - trash city! Bertie has just had a friend over, so we’re halfway there now :)

  15. love his little face. glad you've got on top of things, the kitchen line cracked me up! gus is under the weather now - never-ending winter bollocks! (excuse language.) good news about dan - bumped into him yesterday. shame about the ridiculously long cycle though. x

    Replies
    1. Yes, I had a day of cleaning up yesterday, feel a lot better now. Oh poor Gus. I agree, bollocking winter!

      Yes, with Dan, we’re just going to give it a trial and see how it goes. If it ruins our life, then he’ll have to quit!

      Get well soon Gus (Dan still keeps going on about how lovely he is and how cute he looked reclined with his goodie bar yesterday)!

    1. Thanks Katie. Yes, I wish I could show wider images of it, but it’s so small here and I always get angry when I take pictures with the zoom lens that came with my camera....bloomin’ awful. I like my 50mm lens too much, so I can’t fit my home into a shot! One day...
