Welcome Back!

Hello again and welcome back to The Simple Owl.

Thank you for hanging in there!


What an incredible busy time it has been while powering though my Masters!  After eight assignments, ten exams and a trip to London, I am finally finished!! Do you remember when I spoke about starting this journey?  You can read about it here.   I am lucky to have such supportive family and friends.  Studying when you are 18 is very different to studying in your 40’s!  I was exhausted!! But now, I am looking forward to a summer of rest, sun, fun, and completing projects that have been on hold for the past year!

A lot of changes happening here at The Simple Owl HQ! The shop is closed, and we are headed in a new direction.

What to expect:

Wednesday Wish List: Having a wish list is a trick I learned form my sister-in-law; a list of all the things that inspire me, goals I would like to achieve, and things I dream about. Or lets be honest, things I want to run out and buy!  Making lists are my number one go to for keeping on top of life.  So my ‘Wednesday Wish List’ will be a little bit of inspiration straight to your in box!

Entertaining: Since knuckling down to finish my MSc, I had to eliminate a lot of distractions and and stand back from obligations.  This gap opened up time for study, and now that that part is done, I have the space to do more of what I love, hosting family and friends. So I’ll be sharing lots of entertaining tips and tricks with you!

DIY: Please accept this as a very broad term! Think home, garden, craft, sewing, just about anything I, or anyone else can make with their hands! I have a pile of DIY equipment that is building up, so when I get cracking, I am completely self sufficient!  This pile of DIY equipment includes a chop saw and a bench drill…stay tuned! 😉

Travel: There are so many places I want to see! Travelling is getting easier now that our children are getting older and we look for every opportunity to pack a case and head on the road, both home and abroad.  I’ll share all the best bits with you!

Life – The Random Stuff!:  We have to leave room for the random stuff.  The stuff that comes along and I think: “I’d really love to share that, but what category does it fit into?” Bit like a ‘junk drawer’,  full of vital things, but with no specific home!

I am also moving to a new area of affiliate links and sponsored posts.  I have a disclaimer here, which is a legal requirement.  Affiliate links are a way for me to earn money to fund the blog.  The most important thing for you to know is that I will NEVER recommend a product or service that I do not believe in or think worthy; and at ALL TIMES views are my own.

My first ‘Wednesday Wish List’ will be posted tomorrow.  So no fear if you click the ‘Wish List’ link today and its empty! I have not posted a blog since Christmas, so don’t look back, wait for whats ahead!

After a few long lie-ins, my batteries are recharged and ready to go!  I’m really happy that you hung in there and I thank each and every one of you for that. I know the fresh start for The Simple Owl will be fun and worth the wait!
