I struggled to get up this morning 💤 I stayed up a bit later than normal, as I went through everyone I was following and liked a load of pictures of accounts I haven’t been seeing. It took ages, but now there’s lots of new pics showing up on my feed 👌🏻 So if I’ve randomly liked 8 of your pictures, that’s why 😆 Have a great day! 💗 Bedding & cushion previously gifted by @lovewilko
Sunday chilling after a fabulous day yesterday at Let’s Rock Scotland in Dalkeith. The weather was just perfect and stayed dry with some glorious outbreaks of sun for us which was ace, there was even some sunburned shoulders however no show of any tan for me yet so getting close to going fake before our holiday in a few weeks. Highlight of last night was Erasure, what a show! Back at home and the weather looked to be promising this morning however it’s been nonstop showers. We had a quick drive to pick up some strawberry tarts for tonight’s dinner which didn’t even last 5 minutes in the door, so fair to say they were fairly enjoyed. I’m debating whether to paint this bench, bought the paint some time ago and can’t make up my mind if best to keep as is or darken it? I might even partially paint. Had it looked to remain dry I would likely be outside by now, perhaps need to mull over this for some time yet... We have the Sunday roast melting away in the oven for Father’s Day so looking forward to sitting around the dining table this afternoon. Have a lovely day whatever you are up to with those you love.
Happy Sunday! This room is hard enough to photograph at the best of times, so the miserable weather is not helping. The sun came out to play for a bit yesterday though ☀️🙌🏻 I want to put something on the wall next to the door and I think my blue neon light might work... I’ve put a video on my stories so let me know what you think! Have a great day! 💗

Morning! I haven’t shown the bathroom in a while. I’d quite like something above the bath. A shelf or some form of wording. But I think I should worry about the hallway first 🙊 anyway, I gave the plants a bath last night, as you can see! My Monstera seems to be loving life in its home below the dining room window, so there it will stay! 🙌🏻
Well good evening lovelies from a very wet Basel! Despite the washout today, we decided to adopt the Swiss mentality of “there’s no such thing as bad weather, just bad clothes”. Which is fine when your children are covered head to toe in the finest waterproof gear money can buy, not so when you’re dressed in sports leggings and a “fashion over function” “waterproof” (not waterproof) jacket! But it felt like we were back in the Manchester motherland so all good! It was so wet, the rain droplets were falling into our tomato soup and splashing our face 🤣 • • I promised you more Brocki treasure and here it is. Look at this beautiful woollen 3m x 2m rug now adorning our bedroom floor which I picked up on Friday. Swipe right for a closer look. It was in perfect condition - I could not believe my luck. Brocki love ♥️
Good evening! I just wanted to pop on and let you know that you can now buy all prints in A3 size 😊 I did a poll a while back and some of you said you’d like an A3 option as well as 30x40cm, so your wish is my command 😘 have a great evening!
• F R I E N D S H I P • I reckon I’m a friendly, pleasant person to meet, but I find it very, very difficult to get from that ‘oh hi, the weather’s nice’ stage to the ‘omg I have so much to tell you over a chinese takeaway’ friendship. In the past fifteen years I’ve made one lasting adult friendship and I have no idea how that happened because, to be really honest, I was shit scared of her when I first met her. Her openess and straight forward judgements are a rare find, so I thought, and she pushed me through that awkward Lets Be Friends stage to a place I genuinely always thought was just found in films. Since falling pregnant though, I feel I’ve found another side to womens friendship - there’s a comraderie I never knew existed and that ‘film place’ is actually not that unattainable. Where once I’d feel secretly judged, or maybe pressured, I now feel supported and accepted by women I’d typically never manage to get past the weather convo with. I’d put those women on a pedestal, in a different league I’d never compare to. However, I’ve come to realise and been shown, that everyone is human and everyone is equal and every woman has the same struggles with herself as the next. ~ I’ve had the pleasure of working with a group of women over the past six months who made me feel a part of the group immediately. That warmth and friendship is something I cannot and will not take for granted and I’m so overwhelmed with their generosity and kindness towards me. Today is my last day at work for a year, and my last ever day working with this group of women; but I hope this is the first day of many more days, and years, of lasting friendship. • • • #gallerywallhashtag#currenthomeview#spotlightonmyhome#pregnancy#housetohome#myhomevibe#dailyinteriorinspo#interiorsnapshot#dailydecordose#women#myhousebeautiful#nestandflourish#inspotoyourhome#sodomino#friendship#bestofinterior#iheartthishaven
Morning! How was everyone’s weekend? We had a great one celebrating @billywright442 30th birthday 💗 the weather was perfect for the BBQ on Saturday so let’s hope it stays that way this week! Have a great day 😊 Flowers previously gifted by @bloomandwild 💐
Evening lovelies. How are you all doing? It’s another bank holiday here and we are off on our annual camping trip with dear friends tomorrow. The kids are crazy excited. I have two choices this evening (1) P-A-C-K (my most dreaded task as I can’t bear to decide today what I might want to wear in 3 days time!!!) or (2) Bath and bed. Mmmmm.....that was a difficult decision!!! • • My wonderful family has now left, the guest linens and towels have been washed and everyone’s rightfully back in their own rooms. And I thought it would be helpful to point out how bloody handy a sofa bed can come in! We are lucky enough to have a guest bed and bathroom, but, like many ex-pats, we can often have more than one set of guests. I therefore made sure that both of the children’s rooms could double up as extra guest rooms. My daughter’s room has a double bed and my son’s room a 3/4 sofa bed, perfect for his sister when her room is occupied or sleepovers later down the line. When they are tiny you think they will stay that way forever, but in the blink of an eye they grow! It’s therefore wise to think smartly with their bedrooms and make them as versatile as possible! And with that, I’m off for bath and bed! Happy Hump Day and to those that have a long weekend ...enjoy! X
We had some friends over for an impromptu bbq yesterday. It was lovely, although with 6 kids aged 1-5 there was always going to be a certain level of associated carnage 😄 Definitely a place for @plenty_uk!! Totally worth it though, of course. My friend was trying to convince her husband to get artificial grass so we were all primed to drop into the conversation how lovely and low maintenance our lawn is. I think I may have taken it a bit far 😂 Who else is with her in the artificial lawn camp? I know this is a touchy subject so might regret opening the debate .... 😬 I do love real grass but I just can’t keep it alive so for me there have been no regrets.
Ad|gifted. So we finished the garden furniture! 🥳 with thanks to some (a lot!) of @lovewilko spray paint I’ve made the tired set of furniture left to us look a lot more fun! Swipe to see some pics and before 😊 I’ve been wanting to paint this furniture for months, but we needed to get the rest of the garden finished first. I’m so happy with it, even if it does look a little like Barbie’s Dreamhouse 😂 Some spray paint and the cushions were kindly gifted by @lovewilko and I bought extra spray paint and the lights, also from Wilko. #lovewilko
There’s currently a humongous pile of washing on my bed that I need to put away 😫 but let’s face it, I’m gonna go have my breakfast, finish painting the garden furniture and then forgot about it until this evening and end up chucking it on the floor again 🙂 Hope you have a great Monday!
