roses and whimsy
Sorry to of not been around for a little while...only I have been really busy!
Haven't we all!

Anyways I am currently helping my Mum to find a new forever home, over here in Kent near me! We feel it is just the right time to do it now, as she is getting less mobile and doesn't really like to drive anymore...

She has always had things to do over in London, as she run a WHSmith's Retirement group and used to organise the outings for all the members...we have been on lots of trips to the Theatre and days out to the Norfolk broads and Stately Homes etc! she always used to organise a good day out, even if the weather wasn't all that good, we all used to have a laugh on the coach singing old songs and having a good 'ole chat...

everyone can visit Mum
Once she decided that she didnt have the energy to run the club anymore, and no-one wanted to run it either...the club disbanded. She thought that she might get a few invites out, from the members, but there has been the more we weighed up, the pros and cons...we both decided it would be better for her to live nearer to us...

Freddy could pop round to her on his scooter, Rosie would be able to visit her everyday and I would be able to be her its a win win situation!

So...we have been looking at properties...Mum wants a ground floor flat or bungalow and I have been spending every moment of my spare time, arranging appointments...some Estate Agents are better than others...but I'll give you all the low down when we have finished the process!

Also! gone are the days when you told the buyer your offer...and sat a while, biting your nails all off, while you too and fro'd your offer...No! These days, it's all 'sealed bids' and 'Offers Over'! It's very skullduggery!

Mum will be selling her ground floor appartment in Chadwell Heath, if any of you are interested?
Just drop me a quick email ;) x

Have you any hints or tips on buying a property these days?
Mum and I would really appreciate your advice :)

How To Stay Connected Throughout Your Home

More and more people are finding that they want to be connected every waking hour. Manual tasks seem more and more peculiar when we have so many apps and wifi connected appliances. Of course, if you live in a traditional or period style property, you may be wary of turning it into a twenty-first century digital hub. There needs to be a fine balance between sympathetic upgrades and technological convenience.


The UK has chosen to leave the EU..
Yes it is true...


Our homes can be the most expensive thing we own. They are very stressful to purchase and once you are in them it can feel like a never ending list of things to do. But we take pride in our homes and how they look. So why wouldn't we think about our kerb appeal? This is the first impression our home get’s to make. Not only to our friends and family. But if you find yourself in a position of selling, then it’s what prospective buyers see first. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you some of the ways you can give your home ultimate kerb appeal.


my new responsive blog design

Well would you have a look around here! Yep I have gone and done it! I have updated my blog template!  I had been thinking about it for a long time, but I so loved my 3 column all singing all dancing template, I designed it myself, tweaking it here and there over the years and had never really tired of it....well that was until this year!


free scrapbook elements

 It's Father's Day on Sunday, so for those of you who have not bought a Father's Day card, I thought I would make you up an Element pack for you to print, cut and add to a card blank.
