Well, hello again and happy Friday! I don’t know about you but I am so looking forward to a long weekend. I know we just had one, but I’ve been working like a crazy person this week. I’ve got a weekend of crafting planned – how about you?

So todays Blog Everyday in May post is supposed to be a round up of my favourite posts. I found this really difficult because I can only really remember the last few posts I’ve written! I had a little look through and in no particular order, here they are:

How to Completely Change Your Garden


This is one of my favourite posts because it shows the huge transformation our garden has taken. Our garden is not quite finished yet, but it has taken a lot of blood, sweat, tears and swears to overhaul. Thanks to the current weather, it’s perfect for weeds, which seem to have overtaken every space possible so I guess it’s nearly time to get out there and tackle it head on. The finishing line is in sight…

Hand Knitted Hat

I chose this post because it records quite an epic achievement for me – knitting my own hat. Not as simple as it sounds, this hat had a number of stitches that I’d never used before and had to get some help. It remains my favourite hat of all time!

Tuesday Treat – New Stationery

post it notes

My weekly Tuesday Treat series covers a range of topics, but this one sticks out in my mind for two reasons: 1. It was written this week and 2. It was written from the heart. I was completely giddy about my new stationery, so much so that I haven’t stopped using it all week and it really made me happy. The post didn’t take long to write at all, which is always a sign of a good post I think.

Friday Cake Day

I had to include this one. It’s my first ever post all about baking cakes for work. I had no idea that I started this blog in 2011, it feels like its been a constant companion for much longer, but it’s only been three years. I’ve learnt such a lot about blogging since then, but this post comes from a completely place… just me, writing about what I was up to, not really expecting anyone other than my Mum (Hi Mum!) to read it. What a journey!



This one’s a bit of a cheat, as it’s not one post, but a category. I love writing about Poppy. She cracks me up on a daily basis, whether she’s attempting to roll in fox poo or playing with her chicken, howling as I’m putting my shoes or snorting at a passerby, she’s bloody brilliant! I feel so blessed to have her as part of our family and I love sharing her little adventures on my blog.

How about you? Do you have a favourite topic that you love reading or writing about? Are you taking part in #BEDM? If so, let me know!

  1. I cheated too with my Anglesey category 🙂 I should’ve really included the pups too, ooops. They will be cross. Love that pic of Poppy – she’s so pretty !

    • Aw, thank you! It’s not very often she sits for a photo, but I managed to bribe her with a treat!

  2. You’ve made great post selections. I am very impressed with your knitted cable hat, I’ve been knitting for 32 years and I’ve only tried cables twice! Your dog Poppy is gorgeous, what breed is she? We have two spaniels who love to roll in fox poo and swim in manky water.

    • Thank you! I try to challenge myself with my knitting every now and then! Poppy is a mixture of Basset Hound, Dachshund and Springer Spaniel, or so we’re told! She’s not a fan of water, but she does love a good roll around in fox poo, given half the chance!

  3. that hat is goooorgeous 😀 I’ve never knitted bobbles before, next on my ‘to learn’ stitch list ^^ i bet you are so proud of that hat 🙂
    I’m taking part in #BEDM but I only started my blog at the end of March so didn’t have the great choice you plainly have 🙂 can’t wait to read more of your posts 🙂

    • Thanks Jenny! That hat was a labour of love, I can tell you! I’m pleased as punch with it. Good luck with your new blog! #BEDM will be a great way of adding more posts to it 🙂
