Weekend tiling project

If you want a quick and cheap update to your bathroom then a few new tiles could be the answer. I have just finished this project for less than £10 and it only took a few hours.  The tiles are from Topps Tiles. Here are the before and after pictures.

Views from the camp

Truck loads of refugees are arriving at this camp everyday. The Red Cross team are doing an amazing job of getting people through the registration process but facilities are straining. The reception centre is designed for 1800 people and today they counted 12,000.

Caffeine queen

There are times when a cheap packet of instant coffee granules stirred into tepid water can make a girl happy. Tonight I am profoundly happy to have just that and from a lady who loves her coffee that’s saying something. Let me explain… Today is International women’s day and Im travelling up to the North…

Big Bad London

Now that our trip is over we are tuning in to the fun things that you can do in London. One day a week Im back at college learning more about textile printing and Chris is challenging his braincells with a MA. I know London can have a bad rep for being unfriendly, mean spirited and…

Good endings

Today was a sad day but also an amazing day. We sold our van. It went far quicker than I imagined. In fact the first couple that saw it wanted it. Maybe all that chrome polishing was worth it. The amazing thing was not only that we sold the van but who we sold the…

National treasures

I feel blessed to live in a country with so much heritage. It’s even more amazing that there are organisations around that are in the business of preserving it. Why am I so amazed? I think it’s having lived overseas in countries where preserving historic treasures has taken a backseat and in some cases for…

Creativity

Trouble with t’van

Can you beleve we are already half way through our trip?! We thought it was time to give the van a name which may prove a mistake as it’s always hard to part with something that you have named.  I can reveal that she has been christened “The Minx”. This may say more about me…
