17th May: IKEA YA YA YA

Do you enjoy how Europeans say Eee-kay-ah? I do. "the wonderful everyday" I know it's British to say Marmite is the ultimate love it or hate it thing but I'm fairly moderate in my like of the spread. IKEA on the other hand is a true divider of people. We furnished our first home pretty … Continue reading 17th May: IKEA YA YA YA

Bishopthorpe Road Charity Shop Trip

I'm branching out now. I'm not just sticking to the city centre, I crossed the river. Such dedication. I think this very creepy baby is a good place to start. Look at that horrible tummy button and three fingered hands. Hideous. £1 An excellent selection of dinosaurs but I think I'll regret the purchase when … Continue reading Bishopthorpe Road Charity Shop Trip

A Haxby Haul

So I'm in mixed minds about all this charity shopping.

However I did manage to try on four skirts whilst doing all those things so I felt like a brilliant multitasker. … Continue reading York Charity Shop Haul

7th April: a very sleepy Sunday

Sophie Elizabeth Wright (almost Davey) International Blogging Sensation (see map for evidence). This is just today's figures so I'm pretty surprised how many countries were on the list. I'll completely ignore the fact most countries only had one view and as a Geography graduate I'll just enjoy that I got a map involved. This isn't … Continue reading 7th April: a very sleepy Sunday

28th March #booblols at John Lewis

Not that I am a massive show off but I absolutely won Employee  of the Month before my maternity leave started. I was saving my £250 John Lewis vouchers for a special occasion and with all the joys of negotiating who keeps what as my husband packs up and leaves our family for good I … Continue reading 28th March #booblols at John Lewis
