Storysmith HQ | Our dream home


It's all happening. In a few weeks, we'll have the keys to our new home (nicknamed Storysmith HQ as an amalgamation of our surnames). But - alas - we won't be moving in for quite some time. It's a project you see...

Bee School | A Sunday spent learning about local Bristol honey


A few weeks back, we spent a very special afternoon in the company of Bristol's newest beekeepers, our friends Sas and Ash. The kids are both big honey fans and desperate to see for themselves how hives work, so we headed up to the allotment for Bee School.

DIY WEDDING | Make up lesson plus what I wore

When you're planning a wedding at quite short notice (in our case because my lovely stepson James was moving abroad for two years), most of the top suppliers will inevitably be booked up already. I spent ages trying to find a make-up artist who wasn't but to no avail. The other complication was that our wedding ceremony and the reception were on subsequent days, so I would've had to pick one - do I want professional make up for the formal pics or would I rather look my best for the party?

Swallows' Flight | A slice of summer in Devon's South Hams

Now that we're past midsummer and the nights will begin to get longer again (thanks winter-loving friend who reminded me of this on Friday!), the possibility of a super summer like last year is fast slipping through our fingers. This month has been wall-to-wall rain, which has made me extra grateful for that sun-soaked Easter weekend we enjoyed in Devon a few months back.

A summer garden update

When you have pale English rose skin like mine, finding shade in the summer is a necessity. We've spent the past few weekends waking the garden up from its wintry slumber - chopping back dead branches, clearing leaves, and planting.
