It’s funny how a bunch of flowers can totally change your mood. Peonies (which are, incidentally, my favourite ever flower and colour) have really brightened me and my home up lately. I have been buying myself a bunch each week – and every bloom looks stunning sitting around our family home. It has actually got me loving this baby-pink colour again. It is such a…

Dave and I are *those* kind of people. The ones where we will be chatting away, discussing an idea, (such as creating a new decked area in our garden) and then a few hours later the wood is ordered, the hole is being dug and the furniture being planned out. This is a true story! It happened a few weeks ago when we were casually…

So after all the complaining by MANY of us on social media at just how cold, wet and miserable the weather has been lately (SO grey outside) – out of the blue came the most glorious of weeks and a UK heatwave! The windows have been flung open of our family home, the freezer stocked up with ice lollies and our moods have all been lifted!…

If you regularly read my blog and follow me on social media then you will know that we moved to a new-build house 18 months ago (which we absolutely adore!). You’ll also know that I’ve got so much furniture, accessories & homeware for our family home from the amazing and brilliant Homesense. One of my favourite interiors shops! You may have picked up that I’ve actually…

One of the nicest things in life is climbing into bed after a long, busy day and our bed being made – complete with fresh bedding. I realise that this whole sentence makes me sound incredibly old, however, being a tired parent of twins, getting a good nights sleep at night becomes a huge part of your life. It is something I look forward to after…

This Easter bank holiday weekend we haven’t actually got lots of busy plans, (which suits us fine). We have just got back from a few days up North visiting my Mum and my Sister and so it is really nice to land home and catch up. Our plans for the holidays include relaxing together, hoping the weather stays dry (please, please) and maybe catching up with…

I love our new-build family home in Worcester – I mean, I really do love it. It is so perfect for our modern family living and our twins just love the space we have. It couldn’t, however, be any more different to our old house – which was a cute, smaller, country-cottage in North Wales. Of course there are little details I miss from our old…

When we were deciding on the finishing touches with the developer of our new-build home, one of the jobs that we didn’t choose to go for were fitted wardrobes in the master bedroom. This was mostly due to cost (they were really quite expensive) plus we wanted to make the decision on what to do with the space after we moved in. Nearly 18 months…

When the twins (who sleep in separate bedrooms) were ready, we removed the sides off their cots and turned them into super-cute toddler beds. They were, in fact, pretty good at adapting to these new beds – I think Harry got out of it a lot for a few nights – but then they mostly ‘got on with it’. They have always have been so…
