Mar 17th, 2019 Small Talk Bean 18 min read

[AD – about 50% of the links in this blogpost are affiliate links] Hello, Apologies for missing last week’s Sunday 7, but I plummeted into a weekend of #instafug and was somewhat uninspired… … being uninspired when you blog is the worst: it just results in a sub-standard piece which most would probably click out of before they’d finish reading. As such, I took a…

[AD -affiliate links have been used in this post] Hello! How are you all? It’s been aaaages (…well, 2 weeks!) which I must apologise for, but sometimes, real life – aka decorating / mothering-duties of very poorly, croupy kid – kind of take over sometimes. I reckon there’s at least 15 of you by now, who read my blog regularly… so… hope you can forgive…

[AD – some (about half) affiliate links have been used in this blogpost.] Hello, How’s your week been? Aside from the inevitable minor dramas which, when living in England, go hand-in-hand with a wee dusting of snow… not much going on here at Chez Threads this past week. We may have finally, finally… like… f.i.n.a.l.l.y. said goodbye to January, but the ‘hangover’ of fatigue from what…

Hello! And belated Happy New Year (which feels like donkeys ago now, doesn’t it?) I’m not going to mull over the festive break… just to say it was a good, long, restful one & hope yours was good too?

Hello, How are you? Apologies for the delay in getting this final Sunday 7 of the year published…more a Tuesday 7, but that doesn’t sound quite as good, does it?!

So… from the title of this blogpost, you may have guessed,…
