Top 5 Things to Think About When Choosing Patio Dining Chairs

Outdoor dining set chairs come in any type, any shape and any fabric – but what else should you be aware of when choosing your chairs. Here’s my top five tips list. 1. Do you want to sit still or do you want to rock ‘n’ roll or are you just a fidget at heart? If the answer is yes to any or all of these then you might want to consider a dining set with swivel and/or rocking chairs. These are perfect for either dining at the table in luxurious comfort, or for relaxing afterwards – being able to change your view from the dinner table to that glorious sunset behind you without having to expend too much energy shifting the furniture around. Some...

How to Stop the Point Sinking In

If you want to avoid my waffle, and get straight to the point (pun intended) click below to view some up-side-down coasters to spread the weight a little on your lawn. Many years ago I got to be bridesmaid to my sister. I remember this day for one thing… shoes. Anyone who knows me will tell you that I am not a ‘shoe’ person. I have two pairs – both comfy. One for outside and one for inside. End of! The Wedding It was the first time that I had worn shoes with a heel, or at least those tiny stiletto heels. Personally I would have preferred deck shoes but because we all had to look the same, we all had to have the same...

Death by Sun-Lounger

Everyone has certain memories of childhood that they always remember. One of mine is my grandma, who lived next door, sat in her small veranda in her sun-lounger. A box under the footrest where the cats slept to keep her company. She would sit, and watch our yard and into our kitchen… and drive my mum mad. But that’s a whole ‘nother story. So imagine how thrilled I was when my Grandma gave me her beloved sun-lounger when I got my first place with a small garden. How she must have loved me to give me this oh-so-special chair. That was until I tried it. It had two positions – upright like an old fashioned school ma’am was shouting at you, or perfectly flat if...

When you Rock and he Rolls

Any relationship is going to have it’s areas of uneven ground… and that special close relationship is not going to be any different. Take husband and I. We spent five years actively hating and annoying each other before we got married. We live together, raise kids together, and, well, there’s NO WAY we will work together. We are both always right – and we both always do things in a very different way. (At least HE thinks we are both always right! I know that one of us is always wrong – know what I mean girls?) So how are we different? I have an idea, jump into it, flap about, make loads of mistakes and (in a rare moment of honesty here) it’s not...

Lawn Chairs and Rabbit Holes

I went exploring a rabbit warren today… merrily following twists and turns without much care as to where I went… trying to find my own version of ‘Wonderland’. I think you might have done so yourself now and again. It’s easily done and starts out so innocently. You are looking up something on the internet such as ‘how to cook a chicken’ and you end up buying a brand new sports-car when you don’t even know how to drive! (If I’ve lost you already then read ‘Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland’ and know that a rabbit lives underground in a maze-like home filled with twisting tunnels called a warren.) Anyways… today I went down my own rabbit warren. I saw a picture of an old style...
