I seem to come across the word ‘thrifted’ a lot in the blogging world lately, which I guess is a slightly twee way of saying you nabbed something from a charity shop. Well, let’s call a spade a spade here- this fabulous (in my eyes!) 1970s clock was salvaged for £3 from the dregs of Cancer Research, and I LOVE IT! The hard lines
New rules introduced by the justice secretary, Chris Grayling, have banned family and friends from sending in books, and other reading materials, to prisoners. As of now, anyone serving time at Her Majesty’s Pleasure, will not be able to receive a book from the outside world. This is, according to Grayling, due to lack of staff (read: cuts), to check all parcels for ‘Contraband’ (i.e.
Good morning! I thought today i’d show you some of the vintage crockery that i’ll be selling in my online shop, ‘What Would Irene Do?’, once I’ve got everything sorted.

Sasha had a go yesterday at making these easy Easter/Spring tissue paper wreaths whilst Freddie was at preschool.
In November I turned 30. It felt good. I had a lot some vino out with good friends, a swish hotel in Soho for a night with my lover and got engaged (huzzah!). The ensuing gastric bug that followed the night of our engagement, not so good, but that’s another story. So apart from the engagement, no big horror, no big deal. I didn’t have
Happy Sunday! Welcome to today’s ‘Good Reads’ from Freddie and Sasha. We are currently loving this cheerful book ‘My First London Bus’ by Marion Billet from her ‘Whizzy Wheels’ collection. Purchased by my Mum from a fab little gift store in Spitalfields Market (sorry, but I can’t remember the name!), this is a fabulous hardbook book for pre-schoolers. Living in London ourselves it’s fun to
