Its been a while since my last post, I've been busy and I've been going through a bit of fog when it comes to blogging and really life in general. Just recently, I havent felt like blogging and when life gets tough as it does from time to time, I tend to retreat into my shell. However, I'm back to the blogging, feeling a lot more positive about life and everything. For some time now, we have been trying to find something that we can enjoy as a family, aside from the things we do already. This month we have supporting the local ice hockey team - MK Lightning.

We have been to two matches and had a great time on both occasions. We are going to continue to go to the home games, not all of them, probably twice a month. We will budget for the games each month and also take our own snacks for the breaks. For those those who might be interested, ice hockey is played as 3 20 minutes plays with a 15 minute breaks between the plays.  Aside from the ice hockey, there is not much else that we have been doing, aside from staying at home to save money and having a bit of a clear out! Although we were very upset when the house move and mortgage fell through, we then have spent time trying to resolve some of the storage and space issues which were some of many reasons for moving. We have managed to sort some of these issues which includes having a clear out. This includes selling a load of books neither I nor beloved wanted and we made £50 selling the books. We still have some way to go and I like the idea of having less "stuff".

I will leave you with a photo of T sitting in the giants chair with the "The big bardic book", beside it. We found this on our recent forest walk at a reasonably local forest managed by the Greensand Trust.


  1. Hi Becky, nice to retreat sometimes & concentrate on what's important...

    Love your idea of less stuff too, we are kind of in the process of moving junk from one room to another & hopefully during the winter - it will move out & away!

    We'd like our next house to be something tiny, there are some fantastic storage ideas on the tiny house movement videos on youtube. We have a long way to go before our house can be classed as minimal, but it's a good feeling - seeing things happen.

    Nice to see you back!

    Kay :)

  2. Love that giant's chair! I think we all feel like that about blogging every so often. You will know that I wrote to say that I had lost my mo-jo a couple of posts back! Anyway, it's nice to see you back again today. Take care.

  3. Keep ya pecker up girl. It will all come out in the wash, as my granny used to say. Nice to see you back.

  4. Love your new header pic. I thought of you when we were down in Devon, there was a thatched cottage right by the sea and I said to DH, my blog-friend would love that!
    I agree with you about "stuff" I used to love it in the caravan with just the bare essentials, when we came home I would often feel overwhelmed by possessions.

  5. I'm having a clear out too but not got to the books yet.

    Love your new picture and I love the Hobbit tree. T looks impressive sitting in that chair! Don't forget to let me know colour of mitts.

  6. Gorgeous photos!!
    Happy Autumn to you..
