There is no getting away with it: some days the house looks and feels horrible and you have to consider packing your bags and declaring real estate divorce.

The thing is this: your house will not love you if you will not love it back. And though some days loving it back seems almost impossible, we simply have to gird our loins and throw ourselves, heart, body and soul into showing it the kind of tidy, clean affection you know it’s really craving…

And so my lovelies, I hereby present, The Little House Pick-Me-Up: the fast track, one day, 9 to 5 route to feeling better about your house, whether you are having company over, or simply cannot face another day living in chaos…

Get ready. It is hard work. ~But then nobody said it would be easy did they??

Welcome to the April!

In this lovely little download you will find my suggestions for puttering your way through JApril, challenging yourself to include more puttery treats into your day, incorporating routine and ritual, eating seasonally and including flowers, aromatherapy and crystals in your homemaking routines.

The Seasonal Swap is a ten page download designed to offer you a step-by-step guide to moving seamlessly between the seasons domestically, helping you to get the house and kitchen in order...

Not all of it is terribly fun. Indeed much of what we have to do to in order to make the transition from one season to the next could be considered pedestrian and dull, but once the boring stuff of Winterising the house or conducting a Spring clean is done and dusted we can truly throw ourselves into marking the season by creating scent memories, baking after school treats and stocking up our read-me-next shelves with seasonal delights discovered in the library. We can putter to our hearts delight and truly focus on creating seasonal traditions our families will come to treasure.

Think of it then as a Seasonal Swap and offer it the respect it deserves in your homemaking calendar by carving out time to do all that needs doing before the season is well and truly upon you, and your find yourself wading through puddles in your ballet slippers or tucking the kids up under an 18 Tog duvet on a sweltering Summer’s night...

It's Spring Cleaning time and The Slow Scrub is the answer to all those questions you have had about how the heckity pie you can be expected to perform an intensive Seasonal Scrub when you work full time, have a babba permanently attached to your hip, or have the kind of health problems that mean energy is in short supply.

This download is utterly simple: there are ninety tasks that start with the bedroom and end in the kitchen, with no stone left un-turned in-between. You can of course choose any of the tasks in any order you please, simply ticking them off as you go along until all ninety are completed (so that if it makes more sense to you to do six tasks on a Saturday instead of during the week, then that is ok too, as is sharing out tasks among willing family members), but I have organised it in a traditional “top to bottom way” that I hope will mean you won’t need to go over the same area twice, and can on the ninetieth day complete your efforts by polishing your kitchen sink to a sparkling shine.

With all the same puttery goodness included in all my Life-Book downloads, The Slow Scrub is designed to inspire you to try to instil your cleaning routines with rituals that make it lovelier, whether that be home-made cleaning potions, a podcast on the phone tucked in to your apron pocket or an essential oil that delights your senses, because only when it is truly enjoyable will you commit to a process that will reap benefits for the remainder of the year and allow you to step in to Summer with a house glowing with pride.

One little task daily towards true domestic bliss.

The seven sense prescription was created at the very beginning of the Pandemic as a mean for my members to keep body and soul together by embracing a pick and mix plan of sense soothing little to-do's daily.

Now available to all, this is an eleven page PDF that asks you to choose one (tiny) task from seven lists daily: one each for each the senses, sight, sound, taste, touch, smell, balance and movement, and in the process create a wellbeing routine that promotes a sense of quiet bliss in the mind by engaging your senses one by one.

This isn't meant to add to your long lists of life to-do's, nor to increase your stress in what is weird times for us all, but instead to support you as you go through the days doing everything else, with a body that will thank you for the prescription, and a daily reminder that you matter too.

A tiny little puttery treat for your own wellbeing really does make a difference, and can be fitted in to even the busiest of lives. I promise.

The Life Audit is a monthly set of prompts to help you define where you are in life, what you have achieved, how you feel and what you need to do in the month ahead.

It is a simple, precious ritual and really rather fascinating to be able to look back through all old audits and see how much life has changed, how you have survived what felt like the end of the world at the time, how you have ridden storms and experienced wonderful highs in the process of creating a home for your family, and a life for yourself.

To get the very most out of the life-auditing process, set aside a regular monthly date in your own company, and commit to truly examining exactly what you feel, what you want and what it is you need to put on your for-me list...

The very notion of re-vamping your life has almost become the most outrageous internet cliché, but the truth is there is simply no better feeling than taking stock of what has gone before and resolving to change what no longer fits your way of life...

And so make the annual examination of your life an annual ritual with my 37 page guide to revamping who you are and how your live.

We cannot begin to live a life less ordinary if we are hampered daily by the flotsam and jetsam of a chaotic domestic routine and so in this step-by-step thirty day download, I am going to guide you to create a routine that will mean the keeping of your house becomes as instinctive as brushing your teeth and will no longer stand between you and your more creative, authentic self.

You see a life less ordinary begins at home and having a home that becomes a clean, organised springboard for your soul, will make all the difference to building days structured by routine and ritual and a way of life enhanced by the emotional freedom well-ordered domesticity can provide.

So over the next thirty days you will discover one instruction per day, gently coaching you towards the routine and rituals that will support your own domestic situation. While each lesson and its associated instruction are of course negotiable, followed daily you will find yourself working towards building a deeply personal set of routines, while understanding how those routines can help you shape a life less ordinary...
