Fifty Shades Of Beige

3 January 2014

Camilla and I have recently revisited Cherry Menlove’s blog. Now we both admire how successful she has been but, is it just us, or does anyone else want to reach for a bucket quite a lot of the time when reading it? The tipping point was the post about making a homemade garland for one’s mantelpiece. Has anyone made one of these? In fact who has nothing better to do than to “potter around the house hanging up the odd decoration hither and thither”; instead of grabbing them out of the loft and leaving it all to your children, while you sip a nice glass of Pinot Grigio.

Has cynicism set in – does everyone else think that her blog is “Jolly Good Fun” and full of useful tips? Take a look at it and let us know if we really are just Grumpy Old Women. If there is such a thing as Room 101 We think she should be put in there, along with the Christmas News Letter.
