Christmas 2020 ~ 2 Birds 1 Love! 🎄🎅☃️

So that’s it, Christmas is well and truly over…although I can’t help noticing a few twinkling lights still about on my journeys home from work, obviously people trying to hold on to that last remaining shred of happiness that the holiday season brought, and I can’t say I blame them. For most, Christmas was one…

Christmas 2019 ~ 2 Birds 1 Love 🎄🕯☃️

Ok so I’m actually over a year late posting this….a little thing called a pandemic kind of got in the way of all my write ups and publishing, and then it felt silly to publish a Christmas post halfway through the year, so I thought I may as well leave it until I post our…

How To Make A Homemade Pallet Bench! 🛠

Well this has got to be one of the longest projects I’ve taken on, but there were a few things that got in the way that just couldn’t be helped, and in this blog post you can find out what mistakes we made so you don’t make them too! Firstly I had the idea to…

Mary Poppins Afternoon Tea – Birthday Surprise!🌂 🍰🎈

I must say that the older I get, the more exciting my birthdays have been, and even more so since Char has been in charge of organising any surprises…this year being no exception! I always know I’m in for a real treat when Char starts being all secretive, and spends hours out in our garden…

Around The World Valentine’s! 🌍❤️🗺

I know Valentine’s Day was a while ago now, but we’ve been so busy with birthdays and other events that I’m only just getting around to writing it up! Slacking, sorry! Anyway we had such a fun time that it definitely deserved an exclusive blog post, and this time I get to take the credit!…

Christmas 2018 – 2 Birds 1 Love! 🎄🌟☃️

I’m hoping I can just about get away with a Christmas post, considering we still haven’t put our decs back in the loft yet, and I’m pretty certain I’ve still seen a few random houses with their outside Xmas lights displayed, which personally I think is a step too far…although come to think of it…

Our Engagement Garden Party! 👩‍❤️‍💋‍👩💍

On our first year anniversary together, Char and I decided to mark the occasion by throwing an engagement party for ourselves. We’d already been engaged for nearly 6 months, after Char proposed to me in front of the London Eye on NYE, but we love any excuse for a party and wanted to share the…

Camping – the highs and lows! 🏕

It seems crazy that this time last year we actually braved going under canvas for the Easter weekend. We couldn’t even imagine going now with the weather we’ve been having lately, but last year we had an absolute blast, and surprisingly gorgeous weather in comparison. (n.b. I did actually start writing this post when it…

New York – Homemade Manhattan! 🍎🗽🚕

Whenever it’s a special occasion, one of our birthdays, Christmas or in this instance Valentines Day, we always have this running joke with each other where we ask for something completely out of our price range, just for a laugh, we know it’s never gonna happen but it’s always fun to play along. So for…

Dedicated to Dolly! 💋🇺🇸👢

I adore Dolly Parton, I have done for as long as I can remember. She’s my inspiration and I admire her for all she has achieved throughout her amazing career, and so I’m dedicating a blog post just to her, because why not?! After all, who wouldn’t want to read about Dolly? Dolly Parton &…
