Insta Catch Up – Bye Bye January!

31 Jan

I’ve been pretty busy this week, dashing about and planning the next (and hopefully very exciting!) chapter, but I have been neglecting Instagram slightly less, so I thought I would catch you all up.

1Can’t is so negative. I am guilty sometimes (like everyone else) of dwelling on the things that I can’t do rather than focussing on the positive and things I can do. This year I’m all about turning the frown upside down and taking those cants into YES I CAN!’s.


My darling baby cousin Emily turned 15 this week, and celebrated accordingly. I am so excited to be with her in 2 weeks doing girly stuff and celebrating her (nearly) grown-up-ness!


I fell in love with the lighting when we went to Lobster Burger recently, and began daydreaming of a beautiful loft conversion flat where I could accommodate these. And then I remembered it would be cold. And drafty.3

I’m not a girly girl, and so my nails remain very neglected. Sometimes I do a French polish, sometimes they go for month with barely a file. But left to my own devices in Topshop’s Flagship store on Oxford Street, I went dotty for the detail on these bottles! I was, however, very restrained. Small savings enable big dreams.


Tulips are by far my favourite flower, and great for brightening the flat when the rain is lashing down. My housemate came home from an extended Christmas break, and I filled out carton shaped milk jug with flowers to brighten her day too. Its all about kindness in 2014.

    Sounds good Tinks! 🙂

    I have an ‘adopted’ daughter called Emily who I looked after from birth and is now a mother of two find kidlets so you have this to look forward to! 🙂

    I’m on benefits, so I’m banned from buying goodies for them, but they are lovely kids and VERY smart!!! 🙂

    I could go on for hours about how wonderful the family is and how intelligent, but having looked after Dominic from 5, Rachel (a tissue specialist in the NHS) from 4 as well as Emily and God daughter Becky from birth I have a family even though I couldn’t have kids of my own!!! 🙂

    Enjoy these times hun – they will not come again!!! 🙂

    Love and hugs!
