Sunday 7: I wore it again

Nov 17th, 2019 Small Talk, Sunday 7 Bean 16 min read

Hello! Forgive me readers, for it’s been a few weeks. Again. {Insert all the roll eyes emojis here. And then some.} This time, I have no excuse for my blogging break, no massive family stuff going on or this or that… It’s been a few weeks simply because… I guess without the ‘touting’ of new wares, I just can’t imagine my blog will be that…

Sunday 7 – Sustainability and Kids

Sep 29th, 2019 Sunday 7 Bean 18 min read

Good Evening, Hope you’ve all had a lovely week, without getting your spirits too dampened with the heaviest of rainy downpours we’ve experienced across the country…?

Hello! And welcome back to another Sunday 7! If you read my Sunshine Blogger Award Nomination blogpost a couple of weeks, you’ll know that my Sunday 7 title was named after the day of the week & time of the day (7pm!) the blog was published on.

Hello Everyone! How are you? It’s been yet another busy one Chez Threads, but I guess it’s that time of year… for anyone with kids, schools pretty much want you to camp in the school field with the amount of time parents are expected to spend at school in this final summer term… And for those without kids… who may have colleagues with kids… it…

Hello! How’s your sunshiny week been? Whether you love or hate the heat, there’s no question… we’ve all been hankering after a bit of summer, haven’t we?
