Would you Convert your Attic Space?

Loft space

It’s been a long held dream of mine, that one day we can afford to develop our loft space into an extra bedroom. In our street of 3 bed, 100 year old Victorian semis, many people have decided to renovate the loft and create an extra room. They’ve gone about it in different ways, using different designs, but the result ... Read More »

The Perfect Summer Garden

My family are here visiting us as it’s the school holidays, and we spent a lovely afternoon in the sunshine yesterday, tidying up the garden, pulling weeds and mowing the lawn.

Dressing an Older Girl’s Room


Miss E is approaching 10 years old now, and I can’t quite believe that. She has her own style, her own likes and dislikes and she can be very vocal about them. We’re moving into the tween years where she’ll develop more of her own opinions and become much more of an individual. Part of me is proud and excited ... Read More »

The Year I Make It Happen

the Year I make it happen

It’s that time of year when we all reflect on the past and vow to make things different for the coming year. Call them what you like, mostly they’re Resolutions, but calling them that can often, I find, curse your willpower and ability to succeed. It’s a well-known fact that many, ok most of us have failed at our resolutions ... Read More »

Small Bedroom Dilemma and Bed Makeover

Bedroom makeover before

We’ve had a very busy weekend making over Miss R’s bedroom. Well it’s not really a full makeover but the room really needed some attention as it was getting out of hand. It’s the smallest room in the house you see and she’s a hoarder, a combination that was never meant to work out. The room had become unmanageable and ... Read More »
