Super Mario World - Because I can!

It doesn't matter how old I get, I STILL love this game! Although Bowser was a lot easier than I remember! (Actually I wonder if that's because I'd been playing Nier which is a lot harder!!)

Swans and soon to be Cygnets!

The swans that live on the lake behind my office have built a huge nest! It looks like there will be cygnets on the lake again this summer - last year they had five or six!

Starbucks will write your name on your coffee!

Starbucks have launched a new (I say new but I'm sure they used to do this a few years back) Where they will write your name on your coffee order! The possibility of funny names on cups is endless - has anyone tried this yet?

New watch strap

Hello lovelies!

Today's post is a customised watch strap!

This watch was given to me by my Fiancé many years ago. I had already had the strap changed once around a year ago as the old one wore out, but the one I had it replaced with was awful, it kept undoing, looked rubbish and was generally annoying. So rather than just throwing it in a drawer and forgetting about it, I decided to have a go at making my own. So you if you want to have a go at making your own too, all you need is some beads, 10 gauge wire or thread, beads, a couple of jump rings and a clasp, take a look at some of the steps below.

New pets!

We've got some new pets! Check out our cute little fish  (three male guppies, five Rasboras and two ghost shrimp)- Though they aren't as easy to photograph as the guinea pigs were.
