Where has the time gone? I am sorry I have been so quiet for such a long time – a small short list of excuses involve trying to sell / buy houses, visiting in laws, visiting friends, poorly parents and occasional sunshine and school fun! I guess I have quite simply been busy being one […]
I have just bought a Breville hand mixer, pistachio coloured – which makes me smile every time I look at it. If an appliance makes you happy you’re definitely onto a winner!
