Hi guys, You might have noticed that there hasn’t been much action on my blog lately, I haven’t lost interest, things are just a little bit chaotic at the moment. I sort of feel like my mind isn’t clear, unsettled … Continue reading

I’m sure you’ll agree, Christmas isn’t Christmas without Ham & Turkey, Irish families will cook enough ham & turkey to feed a small village, no matter how many people they’re cooking for, if, like my family, there’s only a handful … Continue reading
Hey guys! I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas ( if you celebrate it), I hope you managed to spend lots of time with your friends and family most of all…and yeah, a couple of nice gifts thrown in. 😂 😉
Since my last post, our mortgage application WAS APPROVED and I’ve basically living on a cloud in addition to a very busy period at work. I worked right up until Christmas eve when I basically fell in the door and died, I was so tired, I then managed to make a ham, a batch of cranberry sauce as well as a salted caramel roulade for Christmas day lunch at my Mother in Law’s house. I am still tired a week later… I will get back to myself eventually, I have a week off when I plan to get lots of R&R and get back to the blogging… and documenting the house progress!!
Meanwhile…HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!
It’s been an exciting week!! You might have gathered from previous posts, that this blog started out as my adventures of living life on a budget whilst saving for a house in the middle of a national housing crisis. I’m … Continue reading

There’s nothing worse than tossing and turning through the night and it always seems to happen when there’s something important happening the next day, doesn’t it? Lavender: Lavender has been used for hundreds of years to help aid sleep, it … Continue reading
Okay I mentioned that I bought a bottle of Gordon’s pink gin at the weekend, I tried something and oh good lord guys! I got the best tonic water I could get my hands on (Fever Tree) and a lovely ripe Pomegranate, got all the seeds and juice out and poured myself a shot and a half of the gin.. I think it’s the nicest drink I ever tasted there’s something about pomegranate and red berries! TRY IT! You’ll get 4 G&T’s out of 1 pomegranate, just scatter in a couple of juniper berries too and you’re laughing! The juice especially makes it!
I’ve posted so many posts about alcohol that one might start to worry..😂 I’m actually just a bit of a gin buff, a nerdy hobby of mine. Last week I invested in two more bottles, I got my hands on … Continue reading
Girls, we all know how hard it is to buy presents for men, given some are easily pleased and want video games or clothes. When asked, my my husband’s reply is always “NOTHING! We’re saving for a house, put the … Continue reading
I don’t know about you guys, but I LOVE gin! Gin’s definitely having a resurgence after the waning popularity of the humble Cosmopolitan or Mojito- don’t get me wrong! I LOVE a GOOD Mojito on a hot Summer afternoon but … Continue reading
