SIMPLE PLEASURES

If you follow us on instagram you will know we had a little break away in Donegal this past week. We just love Donegal, we were staying at Inishowen Head Lighthouse, we are lucky enough to be able to stay here as they are one of only a few places available only to the families of light keepers. Chris’s late grandfather was a lightkeeper so we are able to enjoy the use of these cottages through his grandmother.  They are really basic and not much has been done to them over the years but they are a great base for travelling around and we also get to enjoy fantastic views and beautiful beaches.

THE YEARS ARE SHORT

The days are long but the years are short – Gretchen Rubin

This quote really struck a chord with me and it’s so true, some days I feel like I’m just freefalling until I reach bedtime…..  It is now six months since I returned to work following maternity leave, in ways the time has absolutely flown by but in other ways the days have felt long and sometimes stressful. It’s tough going and there’s days we’re both absolutely exhausted!

I love to burn candles, especially in the winter, it creates that lovely cosy feeling and I love the beautiful scents wafting around the house when I get a chance to sit down and relax in the evening.  So I jumped at the chance to try some gorgeous products from Can to Candle. These beautiful, high quality soy wax candles not only look great but smell fantastic and with a burn time of 50 hours they certainly don’t cost a fortune. With a fantastic mix of modern, rustic and up-cycled designs in a variety of scents it would be difficult to choose just one!
