Bay Tree Cottage, Before and After…

  It’s been three years now since our offer was accepted on Bay Tree Cottage, which means it’s been nearly three years since we’ve been smashing it to bits and transforming it into our little dream home. It has flown by. It hasn’t been easy – we didn’t budget for the huge repairs that were…… Continue reading Bay Tree Cottage, Before and After…

A Venice first timer…

I haven’t blogged very much lately because I have been so busy, and today I suddenly feel exhausted! Over the last few weeks I’ve had two weddings, bridesmaid duties, a trip to the Lake District, our house rendered and yesterday I got back from our little holiday to Venice. I was hoping it was going…… Continue reading A Venice first timer…

A Happy Mind…

“Keep shining, beautiful one. The world needs your light”. My close friends will know that from time to time I have suffered with anxiety and panic; sometimes it’s just a ‘down day’ and other times I can’t shake it off for a while. I don’t always have a reason for feeling this way, but there…… Continue reading A Happy Mind…

A 26 Year Old’s Inability to Cope with a Hangover…

I look back at being 18-19 years old in amazement at how I could roll in (sometimes literally) from a night out or house party at 3am, wake up at 8am and eat a slice of dry toast, then do a shift at Sainsbury’s and somehow survive. At the age of 26, a night out…… Continue reading A 26 Year Old’s Inability to Cope with a Hangover…

I’m currently at home as I’ve been rather poorly recently so it’s given me some time to…… Continue reading Spring has Sprung…

A renovation update…

I thought I would post a little update about the progress of our renovation project. Basically, all I have to report is loads and loads of mess. I am trying my hardest to convince myself that it is ‘progress’ – if I didn’t then I’d curl up in a ball and cry. We’re still working…… Continue reading A renovation update…

Nights out drinking when you’re a 26 year old Granny…

Since buying a house two years ago, nights out drinking have become a bit of a rareity. The delight of buying a new dress and heels has been replaced with buying cushions and candles for our home. Nothing makes me feel more content than a Saturday night at home snuggled up with a takeaway and…… Continue reading Nights out drinking when you’re a 26 year old Granny…

The magic of renovating a home…

“Living through a home renovation is like living in the wild”. This is my first (of probably, many) blog posts about the renovation of our house. I’ll try and keep this as short and sweet as possible as I could write for days on this subject! It’s been nearly two years since we put the…… Continue reading The magic of renovating a home…
