Big Design Plans for Our New Garden

Posted by in home

We moved into our brand new home 2 years ago and it has taken us that long just to get the inside looking remotely how we’d like it. It’s hard with a brand new house as you literally have to start from scratch; there are no curtain poles, no toilet roll holders, there wasn’t even any shelves in the airing cupboard. Money that I would have preferred to spend on the nice decorative bits like new mirrors, wallpaper and lamps initially all went on the boring bits, I mean how…read more

Le Bistrot Pierre Review in Torquay

Posted by in devon, review

Last weekend we were lucky enough to be invited along to Le Bistrot Pierre in Torquay to review their new children’s menu. We have never been to one before and we were excited to discover somewhere new to eat. The timing was perfect as it was the other half’s birthday so we turned it into a family affair and took along his parents too. Le Bistrot Pierre Le Bistrot Pierre is a restaurant chain that specialises in French cuisine (incase you hadn’t already guessed from the name). They currently have  15…read more

Give a Personalised Photo Gift this Valentine’s Day

Having a Wobble & Reassessing Life

Posted by in life

I’m not quite sure whether I’m currently having an early mid-life crisis or whether I’m just getting older. Things that used to seem important just aren’t any more. We have been working towards our 2.4 life for some time now, infact we’ve pretty much nailed it complete with 2 children, detached house in the suburbs, a dog (not a golden retriever mind) but we do have the Volvo! We both work hard everyday, the other half is likely to kill himself from stress within the next few years and we are…read more

Thrifty Thursday & Valentine’s Day Offers

Posted by in thrift, Thrifty Thursday

It’s the first Thursday of the month which means it’s time for another Thrifty Thursday linky. I can’t quite believe that it is February already, looks like this year is going to fly by like all of the rest. We’ve been fairly thrifty throughout January although it was our son’s birthday which always seems to cost a bit no matter what you do. We opted to have a joint party with one of his school friends; by doing it that way we split the cost equally between the two families which…read more

Valentine’s Dinner at Beefeater

Posted by in devon, life, review

We were recently invited along to our local Beefeater to sample what they had to offer for Valentine’s Day.

They cost £5.99. The other half had the Beef Koftas which again was nicely presented. They…read more
