Wonderful Wednesday #42

I didn't skip a Wonderful Wednesday, Blogger just decided to delete #41. The temptation to switch to Squarespace or Wordpress gets stronger every day. 

Maybe I'll do some website research on Friday...when I'm at home...on my day off. YES LADIES AND GENTS, THAT'S RIGHT I HAVE A THREE DAY WEEKEND. Can I get a HELL YEAH? I cannot wait. 

Shall we get on with the wonderful? 


Billy Ray Cyrus

Whenever my brother gets in my car, he snaps up the aux cable and torments me with his music. However, I was pleasantly surprised this week when he started playing 'Achy Breaky Heart' by Billy Ray Cyrus. We had a little jam in the car and I loved every minute of it.

Dinner with a View

It's been ages since myself and G have had a day or evening off together but we always like to have at least one date night a month.

As we've been to SO many food places, I asked my Dad for recommendations and he suggested The Three Lakes at Westmill Farm. The view was gorgeous and the food was superb! I'll definitely be heading back there soon!

Top 5 Tips for Keeping a Bottom Drawer

A bottom drawer, for those of you who don't know, is a place where you keep everything for your future. It used to be a place for women to store household linen for their future marriage. I've had one since I met G and that was four years ago, what used to be a bottom drawer has now turned in to a bottom closet! 

We have plastic boxes upon plastic boxes and they're getting so high that it's limiting the amount of clothes we can hang on the rail. I cannot wait till we have our own place and I can finally get some wardrobe space back! 

I thought I'd share with you my top 5 tips for keeping a bottom drawer, just in case you're thinking of starting one...


1. Leave the Big Items Till Last 

I feel like this is an obvious one but unless your bottom drawer (or closet) is the size of a garage, you probably want to save the microwaves and sofas till last. Get all the little bits out of the way, then once you've found a place, you can measure everything properly and start searching for the perfect three piece suite! 


2. Keep an Inventory 

There has been several occasions where I've said to G 'oo let's get this, we haven't got one' to which he's replied 'babe, we bought one of those ages ago'. Memory like a sieve, I tell ya. 

To stop more events like this happening, I put together a little inventory. It's on Google Sheets so I can access it wherever I am. I split it in to rooms as I felt this was the easiest way to keep a track of things. We can now see what we've bought and what we need to buy!

I did create an inventory template but I'm not a computer whizz and couldn't work out the best way to share it with you all. If you'd like a copy, just get in touch and I'll send it across!
