D I N I N G R O O M






A mini tour around my dining room. It's not perfect by any means, I only have one chair, a knackered old table and washing is always drying on a clothes horse by the door. This is still my favourite room in the house though and it's nice to be able to sit and eat at a proper table for once, rather than having our plates on our laps whilst we watch something on TV. It's been a happy place where we've eaten good food, talked, listened to the radio, occasionally played board games, entertained and basically enjoyed one another's company. I love it here. 

I hope you're all having a good weekend x

K I T C H E N






























I must confess that I never cook, I occasionally boil or scramble an egg or butter some toast but I'm not sure that counts. My boyfriend Allsy does all the cooking in our house and luckily for me he's very good at it as I love to eat good food! Although I never cook I strangely really love kitchen accessories and gadgets, the fact they're beautiful and practical always appeals to me. 

Kitchen accessories currently on my wish list:

F L O W E R S




I love flowers. The big and blousy, the small and delicate, the wild and natural. I'm not fussy, I love them all.

Having just moved from a cottage garden to a terrace courtyard I've found my current flower arrangements are definitely more on the wild and natural side. Twee they may be, but living next to a busy man road in a highly built up town means I am greatly enjoying these snippets of country life. My escape to the good life if you like.

L I V I N G R O O M





After another short hiatus, here I am, back again. I'm greatly enjoying life in my new home, we all are. I didn't realise how stressed and unhappy we all were in our old house until we moved out of it. No more mould, damp or slugs, this place feels clean, light and airy and we all feel happy and relaxed here. The cats especially, who never got on before but now they have a new found friendship. Not much has gone on recently, apart from an unhealthy obsession with Instagram and the The Walking Dead it's been pretty quiet here, which if I'm honest is exactly how I like it.

New Home





Photos of our new home from this past week. I finally have rooms without boxes in them which feels nice. After living in a tiny cottage I finally have space to breathe too which feels even nicer.
