This Month – April 2018

Hey! So it’s been a while since I’ve done one of these random chatty posts; but as of last night things are occurring! So I have some fun announcement type stuff, and some more happening here on the blog this month…

This Month

This is definitely a fun post and I’ve tried to give it a little clarity; because I’m sure you don’t want me rambling on nonsensically as I try to explain what’s happening this month!

So first up…

Travel News:

I'm going to Spain!

I’m going on holiday! (That’d be vacation to some of you); my very, very good friend, whom I have known since college; has invited me to join her for a week of theme park fun, and poolside lounging, in sunny Spain! In a few weeks! So obviously I have SO much to do!

This actually happened once before; and we had a HUGELY fun holiday together in Turkey, back in 2010, so I’m already really excited!

Craft News:

In craft news, I want to do a little altering of a couple of bits clothes-wise because they’ll be perfect to take once I can wear them, because, non-adjustable straps are NOT helpful when they turn you into an accidental flasher… I don’t know what proportions I’m meant to have but anyway! I want to make some things wearable without resorting to tying knots in straps. So sewing on the cards!

I also have my #CraftBlogClub upcycling challenge project to do, which is really exciting! I’d wanted to do one project anyway, and it’s great timing now I’m also heading for the sun!

I took part when the upcycling challenge was running a couple of years ago, before I was a co-host, and you can see what I made here!

In other sewing news I also have some other fun work I need to do! I’m really excited about a project I have planned, even though I can’t discuss it yet as it’s a gift, and basically have no idea at the moment whether it’s even going to work! But I’m looking forward to seeing if everything comes together as it does in my head!

And in other fun, at the end of last month, you may have seen if you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, I LOVED Coco when it was released this year, and was overjoyed when I received this amazing giveaway prize from Skip to the End, which is an absolutely brilliant podcast, and I genuinely haven’t missed an episode in about two years!


They talk all things film and entertainment, regular reviews both new and old, have excellent giveaways and hilarious goings on generally! If you’re into film you should definitely check them out, you can find them on all of social media, and Apple Podcasts, Podomatic etc as well as their website!

Days out:

And of course, there will be the usual fun this month, depending on where we go out to explore one weekend with our National Trust membership! So there’s lots to come!

And of course, if there’s anything you want to see (or not see) on the blog, just leave a comment, or get in touch by email or social media! I’m always happy to hear from people!
