How We Would Spend £20k

I love this idea for a post! I saw it on Britmums, and though I’d be absolutely thrilled to win one of the prizes that are up for grabs, the concept got my attention. I mean, who doesn’t have that ‘if we won £xxx, what would we spend it on conversation’? I’ve enjoyed narrowing it …

I’m Knitting!

I’ve recently taken up knitting. My mum is surprised and delighted. So why the surprise? My mum is one of those ‘traditional’ mums. She knits, bakes, sews, loves gardening and DIY – be it wallpapering, tiling, shelving, reupholstering – she’ll do it! And she’s good at all of the above. Me? Not so much..! But …
