We were all familiar with the "Staycation".... but the ongoing pandemic means that even date night had to be reinvented and the "At-Home Date Night" was born. But when we are forced to work from home, home school and staycation, creating a memorable date night can feel like the hardest task.

Sunny Days

Here comes the sun...

July is finally here and hopefully we can now enjoy the lighter summer evenings and the better weather days. That brings me to thinking about entertaining... BBQ season is upon us so its time to invite friends and family over for a Bite to eat... Maybe even a BBQ if the weather holds out.

The thought of entertaining, even alfresco, can be stressful as it means people coming over; extra bodies in the house, bums on seats etc. So once you have sorted the food, its time to get your house in order….

Euro 2020

Euro 2020 is turning out to be just what the country needed.... we all seem to have found a welcome boost in the nations moral with our chances of featuring... dare I say winning the Euro 2020 final. 

The rescheduled Euro 2020 tournament finally got underway in Rome on June 11 and runs through to what could turn out to be an epic final on Sunday July 11. I dont know about you but our household (even though we are not big footie fans) are now turning our thoughts as to where we will watch it... the pub would be preferable but with the current situation maybe not the right choice.

Shoe Racks

With May 2021 still so inclement, when will it finally get better? It’s raining, it’s pouring, the old man is snoring… well actually it’s been raining, poring, and thunder storming, which means we have lots of damp shoes hanging about. Small children love to jump in muddy puddles (Pepper Pig has a lot to answer for!), adults tend not so much, but with such a lot of rain we are bound to have wet shoes and coats hanging around the house so what’s the best way to dry them?
