Now that we have a garden I cannot wait to get my claws into a bit of gardening 🍃 living in London for 6 years meant that I was never able to grow anything, apart from the herb pots from the supermarket which I would always manage to kill after a week 🤣 I would love to learn more though, especially about growing our own veg so we can eat what we grow. Does anybody follow any great gardening accounts or know any books I can buy to teach me how to have better green fingers? Also if you swipe you will be able to see my mood board for part of our garden, does anyone know what the long plants are called at the back going up the fence? If so I would love it if you could let me know 🙌
@lasscobrunswickhouse caught my eye from the train coming into London. An intriguing old Georgian house standing strong amidst the towering skyscrapers. At the time, I had no idea that the event I was attending that evening just so happened to be at this beautiful venue. Old buildings that survive the world changing around them have always fascinated me. The history they hold, worn footprints on the stairs, the attention to detail in the design, evidence of skilled craftsmanship at every turn. There is a touch of Charles Dickens about this place, you almost expect Miss Havisham to be lurking behind one of the many lavish drapes. Old houses that have many stories to tell are the reason I love restoring properties, there is always more to discover, rescue and preserve. . #oldbuildings#brunswickhouse#fadedgrandeur
Evening guys! The stupidity of people astounds me, like ASTOUNDS me. Is it stupidity or just general lack of attention? Let me explain, one end of our street is quite narrow and generally if people park there it needs to be staggered and/or half on the pavement. But upon returning home from collecting Nate from nursery I found I had to squeeze through as one dope had decided to park directly across from another car, neither of which were on the pavement in any shape or form. So my parking sensors were going wild, that’s how little space there was to pass. Anyway, once I had passed I gave a few angry beeps assuming one of the parkers was dropping something off at a house/just making a very quick visit to someone. Cut to 2 1/2 hours later we hear a siren and can just see a fire engine who cannot get through, and a fireman having to run from the fire engine with a hose to a house further down the road! Cue concerned (nosy) neighbour husband who goes down to see what’s happening. Turns out reports of a fire had been made, but it was a washing machine smoking? So nothing terribly dangerous. Thank God. And one of the people did eventually come out and move one of the offending vehicles. But seriously, was this stupidity on their part/lack of attention/not caring? Ugh. Anyway, no harm done thankfully but you can imagine it could’ve been so much worse. If I was driving the fire engine I defo would’ve just smashed into one of the cars 😄 So the moral of this story is, engage your brain people! 😄 . .

This is what I’m sat looking at. What I should be looking at is a sander in my hand in the back garden whilst stripping the last little bits of paint off the 3 remaining doors so that I can finally say that I’ve finished ALL the doors and they’re back hung in the holes that they live in. But this is where I’m sat. Being a lazy shit.
#ondisplay . This is my desk. I've only been here a few times today. . Not because I've been partying away, because I've been cleaning. So jet set. . I'm thinking now I'm 36 I need a new haircut. Watch this space! . #styleithome 🖤🖤🖤
Design is a journey of discovery. Lacuna for #texturetuesday 〰️ The unlikely combination of Lacuna's two textures begins with a plush cotton velvet, using heat and pressure, we then fuse a foil into the fabric’s rich surface. This creates a pattern meteoric in appearance and luxurious to touch. #innovationsusa | Lacuna, Spring 2019 Collection
