Home Sweet Home



Since I last wrote, things have changed. We have moved house and we all love it. We've been here a couple of weeks now and we are all filling out into the new space and making it home.


I love coming downstairs each morning and lingering at the kitchen table. I can get the juicer out as the bedrooms are so far away that I won't wake anyone up. I am making a new habit of sitting at the table after breakfast and reading something inspiring...even if it's only for ten minutes just because it's nice to be there.


 Everything is new. There are new places for things (taken some getting used to),  lots of new keys (also taken some getting used to), new STAIRS...(we now have three big flights of stairs)


 and after living in a flat for 9 years you can imagine how many times we are UP and DOWN when we've forgotten things! 


I love that there is room and LIGHT for plants again, which I have missed.


 I had the talented Clare Scott build a shelf in the bathroom especially for succulents.


Look how this one is coming along Wendy. It has three whole leaves now AND it has flowered (and look how the leaves match the sofa).


(Tomsk looking very handsome)

And as well as there being room for plants and cats there is plenty of room for people too...


 Look how many lads Euan can fit in his room in one go now...


and look at this little guy who came to stay this weekend  (with his Mummy and brother and sister). What an absolute cutie. Our house has well and truly 'warmed' by lovely people this weekend.


And I don't have far to go to work. Down some stairs and I'm in the shop. Will I ever go outside again? It's a good job the pull of the woods is strong or I might not!

I hope you enjoyed your little tour. Thanks for coming to my new house. x

That was fab - lovely to see inside your home and how amazingly convenient to have home and shop all in one place!

PS. Is that a kettle or a light in the second photo? Either way, I want one!

I now have house envy!

It looks like a lovely place to live (and next door to mooch too, so even if you did want to go out you don't need to go far!) I'm sure you will be very happy there :)

Happy nesting! What a gorgeous new gaff you have, that staircase and the sash windows, sigh!Enjoy the fluffing now the pain of boxes is passed.

Dig your commute.

Thanks folk for your kind words! I'd love to have you all round for tea :)

Tara, yes it is indeed a Kettle Light. It was my treat to myself when I finished my book. It's by http://www.garbage-vpot.com/nouveautes.html Great work. I love it.
