WEEKENDER: April





Life right now is good. Good and happy. Best way really. 

Blossom, daffodils and tulips are my favourite flowers. All the bright, hopeful colours after dreary winter.  Happy times.

We went out last night. First time in a long time. I drank way more than my body is used to and luckily I didn't get a hangover. Who blamed old age for hangovers! A good Weatherspoons dinner was just a bonus.

REVIEW: Dove Hair Therapy Oil Leave In Conditioner Spray


I'm always quite dubious of Dove products - other than the shampoo and conditioner and soap... Okay, so I'm not that dubious. I was quite worried about this one though. Was it going to leave my hair lank? Would it make my hair clump together in hard lumps?

For £3.59 this is a wonderful product and I shouldn't have worried. I spray this on my damp towel dried hair before I blow dry it. Then, I spray it on the ends before I straighten. Then, I might spray it of afterwards too because it smells divine.

I actually got complimented at work the other day over how nice my hair smelt. 1000 woman points to me.

I have fluffy hair after washing and this makes the ends a little more refined and sleek and although I have fine hair, it doesn't leave it looking lank. I'm going to buy this time and time again. You should too.

The best things in life are free.


So maybe not everything, that chicken cost £8, those plants set us back a good few pennies and that pie and custard were severely overpriced.

Good money well spent though, and last weekend was the best weekend we've had in a long time. 

(That decking was free. Though it took is a good couple of days to fit together and a good couple of cups of tea.)

Hello April

April  is the month that Spring really gets underway.

I spent this afternoon sweeping our patio and moving pots about. I discovered little shoots peeking up through the dirt and it gives me hope. I hope that this year will be as kind to us as the last one.

I started a few weeks back by saying that life gets tangled up and it's hard to unravel it, but for me, just seeing a little seeding makes sorting the complicated things out slightly easier. If a tiny seed can battle it's foes - weather, chickens, wild birds, our cats pooing everywhere, me and my rampant digging during the winter months - then why should I yield to my super bossy boss who has minimal control over my life?

I meet so many different people every day and they impact me, definitely, but they also mean nothing. Remembering that makes those tears, that build up when someone insults me, fade away.

And if the people you choose to love bring those tears to the forefront, just remember that sometimes seeds do fall a fair distance from the tree.
