“Among the things made by man, nothing is prettier than an English cottage garden, and they often teach lessons that ‘great’ gardeners should learn.” William Robinson, “The English Flower Garden,” London 1883 It’s official. I am old. I’ve got a crush on Monty Don! In a desperate attempt to turn the mud pit in our backyard […]
We did it. After almost two years of planning, building and waiting, waiting, waiting, we finally moved into our new house a couple of weeks ago. Being at home again, after moving from one temporary place to another (and another, and another) during the past 18 months, my body has taken the cue and has shut down. […]
I have been a bit surprised by just how incredibly well my body has responded to the month-long course of supplements I tried last month.

Our 1920s Manhattan art deco inspired London pad was coming along nicely. After we had sorted the kitchen and the floors, the bathrooms provided the next challenge on our list: a family bathroom on the small side and an en-suite that was so miniscule, we couldn’t even fit a regular door on it.
I know it’s a bit of a city-girl-turned-mummy cliché, but I do love an interior design project here and there. The first house I bought together with Big M was in fact a complete sh*thole, and doing it up was a bit more of a project than I had bargained for. By the end of […]
