My OH is rather obsessed with cleaning – aren’t I the lucky one!  Although I do think he takes his obsession a little too far at times, I like to find him something new to get excited about from time to time.  So when I can across Ora kitchen towels… Continue reading »

Colourful Advent Calendar

Colourful Advent Calendar

I am ever so slightly obsessed with Advent Calendars.  I think it goes back to my childhood and the days before all the rectangular cardboard ones you get these days with tiny bits of chocolate in them.  Our Advent Calendar as children: we had one, one between the two of… Continue reading »
