New Year…

Happy New Year to you all!  We had a very quiet evening, the girls were in bed by their normal time, then Stu and I stayed up having drinks and listening to music. Very simple, but very nice. January has started for me with a heavy head but overall I’m feeling positive about what’s to…

Trees and frolics.

Today we bought our tree, a little earlier than usual, but Stu’s shift pattern coming up won’t allow much tree perousing so we decided to get it sorted today, whilst enjoying the beautiful sunshine, then take our time to decorate over the coming week. I have such fond memories of my Dad and I setting…

Small Business Saturday

​Today is Small Business Saturday and inspired by the lovely Catherine Caton’s Instagram post this morning I would like to share with you some of the small businesses that I follow, have bought from, plan to buy from in the future and some that I have just discovered. We all get caught up in the mass produced cheap…

The long awaited floor…

I’ve had quite a few people ask me about our new floor, having seen snippets of it in my Instagram and Facebook posts, so I thought I’d share some more details and pics here, in the hope that it could help others on their journey to a beautiful floor. So, it’s taken a while, MANY…

I’ve been doing some soul searching recently, I’ve realised certain things aren’t making me as happy as I would like them to and the balance in my life is very much off. When I started this blog it was because I enjoyed sharing things I had achieved with you lovely people, but somewhere along the…

Dotcom Gift Shop parcel of treats.

It’s always lovely to get a knock on the door and be handed a big parcel of wonderful treats, lately the only things that seem to arrive at our house are wooden floor samples and bills, but today is an exception. The lovely people at Dotcom Gift Shop have sent the girls some wonderful Summer…

Sunshine lift my spirits…

The sunshine is lifting my mood and I’m sat here marvelling at how close we are to such a huge change to the way we live. Not so long ago behind this chair was the boundary of our little indoor home world and now more than just the promise of a room to spread ourselves into, to relax…

Room divisions, zoning a space.

My last post about my ongoing work at the Birth Centre and the children’s space I have been creating there has led me on to thinking more about different fun and exciting ways of zoning rooms. The great thing about writing this blog is the ability to explore ideas, even if I don’t have the space…

The art of compromise.

The art of compromise is something that doesn’t always come easily to me, I try my best with the girls, life with children is ALL about compromise and negotiation, but generally with my husband I do get my own way, eventually. I have almost total free reign in the house when it comes to design and have made some…
