Blogmas Day Nineteen: A Winter Walk ❄🎄

6 days to go!

Me & my friends from work (past & present) when on a little walk and coffee catch up this morning.

It was super foggy – it looked so pretty, it was just a shame that it was so damp! My feet were a little chilly.

We did a short walk before heading in for a coffee, a snack and a much needed catch up.

When my husband Tim came to get me we decided to embark on the longer walking route before heading home.

We have enjoyed this walk many times and with a Candy Cane Hot Chocolate in hand (very festive!) we made our way round the route. Its roughly a 40/45 minute walk. It was lovely.

I took some photos whilst we were there and here they are…

Walks are one of my favourite things to do these days.

Do you enjoy a Winter Walk?

Until Next Time,

Blogmas Day Twenty Three: Homemade Christmas Cards 🌲

Hi guys! 👋🏻

I’ll just leave this here, just because….

It has to be done, every year.

So, I do try and make my Christmas cards every year and I have done for over 10 years now (Sayyyyy whatt, madnesss)

This year, with all the craziness I almost didn’t… but then I thought, let’s just scale it back a little, keep them simple and I just do it for my fambizzle.

So thats what I did… if you are family and are reading this, maybe don’t or your card might be on here 🤣🤣

I still had loads of festive paper left over so I used that as the main design as they are pretty ones.

My calligraphy leaves much to be desired but, be won’t worry about that.

I really liked the simple effect of using the gift tags as part of the design.

I actually really enjoyed making these again. I have utilised Moonapig this year, in order to send cards all over the place, so it was actually really nice to be making them again!

Prehaps I’ll get ahead for next year whilst I’m enjoying it and have more time. It’s nice to do things when you have the time to enjoy it and it doesn’t become a chore.

Right, I’m off to organise our round for the Festive Boxing Day Quiz (2020 stylyyyy obv)

Happy Christmas Eve, Eve!

Until Next Time,

Blogmas Day Ten: Decorating My Reading Corner ❄

Happy Day Ten of Blogmas!

Here’s a little sneak peek at how I’ve decorated my reading corner… I love fairy lights (any excuse!) And they look super cute with a few little other festive touches.

Super cosy!

Adding a few festive touches has made my reading corner even more cosy!

Annd I’ve even managed to not poke myself in the eye with one of the light up branches, whilst reading, so win win!

Books & Christmas = a pretty epic combo! 🎄📚

Has anyone else decorated their reading areas?

Until Next Time,

Blogmas Day Seven: ᴄʜɪʟᴅʀᴇɴ’ꜱ ʙᴏᴏᴋꜱ ᴡᴇᴇᴋʟʏ ꜰᴇᴀᴛᴜʀᴇ 📚🎅🏻

Since this weeks Children’s book is a Christmassy one I thought I would unashamedly shoehorn it into a Blogmas post for today!

The Christmas Elf and the magic of kindness

By Marcy Kelman and Hannah Mark’s

This book is SO cute. The illustrations are lovely and bright and the message that it gets across is so sweet.

The book is all about being kind and finding and embracing what you are good at… not worrying if you can’t always do what someone else can do, because we all have our own individual talents.

The perfect, Christmassy story with a beautiful message to those who read/listen to it.

18 days until Christmas!

Until Next Time,

Roseanne 🙂

My Reading Corner Makeover 🌿 📚🌸

I wanted to update my reading corner recently. I am happy with the theme and colour scheme, as it fits well into the lounge where it is….

… I did however, need more space!

As I mentioned on my Instagram (RoseannesBlog) page, me and my husband recently went to Ikea and there is where I found my new bookcase! As well as a few other little bits to finish off the area

So, let’s take a look!

The new addition to my bookcase is the slim one nearest the wall. This is the Billy Bookcase from Ikea.

This bookcase is from the Billy Bookcase range and is just like my original case (also a Billy), but it works really well as a little case for a small space, or a add on to create a little extra space.

This was perfect for the space that I have for my reading corner.

I can’t wait to fill up my new shelves properly.

Here are some of the little bits that I’ve bought to add to the area.

I bought some plants to decorate the shelves, a cute pink lamp for my desk and a new swivel desk chair.

I’m really happy with the extra book space thats been created, without ruining the area that I have already prepared.

Its still super cosy too…even more so! And I can’t wait to enjoy my books in this area.

What do you think?

Until Next Time,

Pets 🐹 pt 2 💛

Pets make a great addition to any family, they are someone to cuddle, someone to talk to, someone to look after, someone to love.

This probably seems like a really random blog post but I started this blog to document one of the most important days of my life (our wedding) and since then I have found it my place to write about the things I like, that make me, me as well as the things that are important to me in my life.

I’m so sad to say that our guinea pig Captain died yesterday, Sunday 20th September 2020 😭💛
He was such a lovely chap! An old boy at 6 years and 2 months old.
Our first pet together (with Remus 💚) back in 2014, when we moved into our flat.

You were adorable when we saw you at Pets at Home, we both knew you were coming home with us!
We’ll miss you squeaking to say hello (or FEED ME) as we come in the front/lounge door.

Thanks for being my little lockdown buddy.. you were great company!

We’ll miss you Captain (Gothmog) Byford💛 🐹
RIP Buddy X

Until Next Time,

Blogmas 2019 Day Ten: Visiting a Christmas market ❄

Hi guys!

Last weekend me and the fam all got together to visit a Christmas market.

It was perfect timing as it was the 1st of December, so a great day for a festive outing.

We all got on the train to a nearby town and walked into the centre. It was raining when we arrived, which was annoying, but we didnt let that dampen our spirits.

It had cleared up mostly by the time that we got to the stalls.

It was really fun getting the train as we don’t do it often! The kids loved it and it felt more festive somehow.

The boys had fun on the rides…

There was also a lovely brass band playing Christmas tunes, cute stalls with little handmade bits and bob’s, as well as food too.


It was the perfect weather for a warming hot chocolate and a browse.

A lovely, festive day out 🎅🏻

15 days until Christmas.

Ho Ho Ho
