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…

Jun 30th, 2019 Small Talk, Sunday 7 Bean 2 min read

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? And as roasting hot as it was yesterday, it was short-lived… and as of today, we’re probably at a more ‘acceptable’ level of summer and I for one am *loving* it! Following on from last week’s Seven Ways…

Hello! It’s been a busy few weeks in the Threads household – how are you all? The mammoth 40th party for Le Husband, which frankly, took more organisation than our wedding… is done, dusted and was a great success… There have been a great many other family needs… just life in fact, which have been pulling and tugging at me and as a result, my…

[AD – this blogpost contains a handful of affiliate links & a discount code] Hello! How are you all? Last week I complained that it had been a really long week.

[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…

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?! It’s a very busy time of year for pretty much everyone though, right? This post is probably also a bit too late in terms of Christmas Parties and the like, but if like me, you don’t…

Hello, How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping & decorating? We don’t have a tree up yet. Zero decorations, in fact. We’re getting a bit of carpentry done at home next week… not the best timing, but it’s just how it’s worked out. Hopefully, hopefully… we can decorate the house after that. So… from the title of this blogpost, you may have guessed,…

AHello there! I’ve been a little absent from my usual Sunday 7 slot… it’s getting to that time of year again, a bit like the Summer Sales, where it’s everywoman for herself, with ‘Black Friday’ deals being fired at us left, right and centre… … and if it’s not BF deals, then it’s the Party Dress edits or Party Shoe edits on the regular blogs…
