A dismal Christmas for me battling Covid – but my Garden City neighbours really helped

It’s been a quiet and yet hectic start to 2021, living life in lockdown (again!) in Ebbsfleet Garden City.I didn’t manage to get a blog post out in December due to testing positive with Covid-19 the weekend before Christmas. While I was very poorly with all the classic symptoms, I luckily didn’t need to go

It’s Chriiiiiiisssssstmassssss

I can’t quite believe that we are halfway through November already – and fast approaching our third Christmas living in Ebbsfleet Garden City! I’ve heard lots of people saying that they have focused on Christmas slightly earlier than usual this year due to having little else to look forward to…and that’s exactly how I feel!

Look at what we did for Halloween – for only £20!

Autumn is well and truly upon us in Ebbsfleet Garden City, and despite the current circumstances, I feel there is so much to look forward to in the next few months! Crisp woodland walks, cosy evenings under blankets at home and s’mores by the fire – while I always say I’m a sunshine person, I

We’ve enjoyed life together at home – and it’s been busy!

We’ve had a very busy summer in Ebbsfleet Garden City, with lots of time spent exploring our local area as a family, but also enjoying life together at home. I’ve made the most of being home-based with a few more interior projects on the go. Due to the Covid-19 situation we obviously haven’t had

I’ve taken on a big project that had been on my list this year

With lockdown easing and most retail stores opening back up, I’ve taken the opportunity to finally take on a big project that I’d been meaning to do since the start of 2020. Since moving to Ebbsfleet Garden City, I’ve really enjoyed throwing myself into various interior DIY projects. I have absolutely zero training or experience,

Now that the UK is slowly opening up and we are able to leave our homes more freely, we have been looking for unexplored places to head outdoors for a bit of exercise and where the kids can run around safely. I thought I would share some of these with you, to inspire you to

It’s a new way of life but we’ve been so busy

It’s been almost two months since the UK has been in lockdown, and as a family we are acclimatising to our new way of life. Aside from a quick walk once a day and a weekly supermarket shop, which either myself or my husband undertakes on our own (we want to save the online delivery

I’m not going to lie – I’ve found it hard to write this month’s blog post. Initially I was planning on giving some ideas on Spring activities in our local area, however many of these have now been cancelled or postponed. The current global and local COVID-19 crisis has affected absolutely everyone I know, and

This month has been incredibly busy in our household in Ebbsfleet Garden City, as we are fully back in the swing of work and school, as well as various home décor projects. The big news is I’ve finally got round to painting our family bathroom and ensuite, which has made a huge difference to the

Happy New Year!! Well, it seems like we blinked and the holidays were over, however now the mince pies have been eaten and the Christmas trees are down (almost, I’ve still got my artificial one up in the living room because it’s just SO pretty!), it’s time to look ahead and start thinking about 2020.
