Delicious Hazelnut and Chocolate Cake

My love of chocolate and hazelnuts (nutella) and my ongoing search for a cake recipe that brings those flavours together in unison meant I decided I wanted to make a hazelnut sponge.

Garden office the story so far

You may remember back in August 2015 in my week 2 post about the Project Woodlands house renovations, there were pictures of concrete being poured for a concrete base for a garden room.

As if we don’t have enough on our plates with the house we have been slowly working on a garden office / shed at the bottom of the garden.

With the main building works done on the house for now, and after being made redundant from my full time job, the provision for a home office is all the more pressing.

Fab slippers from Mahabis

I have just come across these fabulous and unique slippers from the UK based company Mahabis. What a fantastic idea, slippers with an outdoor sole that slips on. These would be ideal for me around the house. I always wandering outside into the garden still wearing my slippers, to be able to just slip on an outer sole would be so practical and far better. Something for next years Christmas list I think. http://mahabis.com/pages/classic-slipper   Mahabis slipper in action Mahabis slipper Mahabis outer...

Plaster Plaster Plaster

24th December 2015   The foreman arrived early Wednesday morning with the plasterers in tow, much to our excitement. Unfortunately this was short lived as annoyingly they didn’t return the next day. After chasing up on what was going on the plasterers said they would return and work at ours over the weekend to make up for not being here on the Thursday and Friday. They then worked through until early afternoon on Christmas eve to get as much done as possible. The plastering has really transformed the spaces and they are finally starting to feel like rooms again. To celebrate we set up a make shift table in our lounge, opened a couple of presents and had some fun playing laser tag around the house. lounge plaster boarding lounge plastering boarding the front bedroom plaster drying out in front bedroom entrance hall plastered entrance hall plastered plastered hallway plastered hallway celebrating  ...
