About Mrs C

http://www.missmarples.co.uk/author/mrs-c/

I am a contradiction: I like the sun, but not the heat, I am uptight yet very laid back, I am brilliant at witty one liners but this is normally hours after the conversation, I adore Mr C but not the initials I gained on marrying him (WC), I love to laugh but it sometimes makes me wee, I like to think I look cool and confident and then I trip up, I like corned beef yet hate the tins, I love our 3 children although when they are all squabbling you may not think so, I like champagne but not the hangover, I hate adrenalin rushes yet want to do a parachute jump, I have endless patience but I want it NOW. My only absolute no contradiction is that I love my bed!

Sleep (or Lack of it!)

Sleep (or Lack of it!)

Frank Sinatra was an insomniac who once quoted ‘I’m for anything that gets you through the night, be it a prayer, tranquilisers, or a bottle of Jack Daniels.’ I am lucky, I was always a good sleeper, getting to sleep easily and sleeping deeply. The rare occasions I didn’t sleep were when I had something(…)

From Conservatories to Garden Rooms

With the entrance of the recession longer ago than we would all like, there was a buzz around interiors which told us to ‘improve not move’. A lot of people who would have loved to move just couldn’t raise the funds but if they were lucky could raise funds for improvements to their house. This(…)
