VLOG ALERT!! Completely unbelievably there is only one month (ish) left to go until we move back into the new house 🤞🏼🤞🏼🤞🏼(all fingers are crossed)!! It’s been just over a year since we moved out of our last home and started this adventure and 19 weeks since we were finally able to move into Santana the static caravan and begin the renovation. In some respects the time has flown, in others it’s gone slower than slow. Like all the other renovations we have done before, it’s been amazing and exciting, but it’s also been extremely testing and totally consuming at times. This week was a big week because the decorators started 😆 so to mark the occasion, I have done a video house tour of progress so far over on the vlog (link is in bio if you fancy a peak 👀)!! Moving back in might possibly be the best day ever... I well up just thinking about it 😂!! The count down is now officially well and truly on... we can see the light 💡🗓🤞🏼

Happy weekend IG!! House renovation vlog week 15 is now live if you fancy a peek 👀 (link in bio!) The most important news of the week is that our new bath got delivered 😆 I have now been bath-less for nearly a year, so it is fair to say to own a bath again has made me one very happy girlie 🛁!! I hope everyone is having a fab weekend. It has been a day of house designing and landlord duties for us so far... but tonight the ☀️ is shining in Manchester (its rare), so we are off to the big city for din dins, a little bit of Mr Gin and hopefully a lot of F.U.N 🙌🏼 WOO HOO!! xxx

Today you will not find us in Santana the static... no no no, you will find us in the beautiful (and sunny ☀️) Lake District having a wicked and desperately needed little family break... woo hoo!! We are super giddy to have escaped house building for a few days and we are so grateful to @darwinescapes for having us to stay in this gorgeous lodge. We are most definitely making the most of our family time and we have been on some beautiful walks, visited @lakesdistillery (where there is all the gin 🙋🏻‍♀️), eaten some gorgeous food, had a relaxing spa day and for our last night tonight we are just going to chill in our lodge with some drinkies, fajitas and a bit of Mr hot tub... whilst thanking our lucky stars ⭐️ Amen to that 🙌🏼 Happy Sunday lovely IG xxx

Let’s call today ‘WILD WEDNESDAY’!! I have had so many meetings that I think my head might explode 😂 I have gone from a two hour interiors consultation with a lovely lady who is wanting to do some work to her house, to planning meetings with clients for current and future renovation projects, to a project meeting for our house renovation, to giving a tour of our rental HMO properties to people who are interested in doing HMOs themselves, to a maintenance meeting with the handyman and finally to some tenant viewings!! My head is bamboozled but man I love my job. It’s days like these that remind me how lucky I am to be doing what I do ☺️🏡 Anyway, in other news (and before I get to soppy) we are off to the cinema tonight... we haven’t been in a been in a while (like a week), so I’m having withdrawal symptoms 😂 Hope everyone has an amazing evening and manages to avoid these crazy April showers we are having 🌧 xxx

What an Easter weekend... although I am not sure my liver would agree 🙄 It’s a health kick for me today. You heard it here first 👊🏼 From now on there will be absolutely no more liquid fun (at least until next weekend anyway) and only green things will pass my lips 🥦🥒🥝🍏🍐🍈 #icandothis p.s. pics are a before and after slidey show of our old lounge. The eagle eyed amongst you might notice that the grey painted fireplace was actually the original fireplace that was in the lounge when we bought the house. We took it out, painted it and popped it back in... but in the dining room! It was one of my favourite things that we did... although Doug was never a fan... boys 🙄😂 xxx

H A P P Y E A S T E R....🐣!! Man I miss this front door, but I can not wait for this time next year to hang our Easter wreath on our new front door, that’s going to be a good moment 😆 The house is really starting to take shape now and my week 11 renovation vlog is now live if you fancy a peek (link in bio). This week we have put in the bifolds and roof lantern, started the electrics, painted more windows, put the rubber roof on over extension, finished the stud walls and poured the new concrete floor for the garage... it’s been busy!! I am having a day off today though because quite honestly my head is spinning and there has been lots of late nights this week doing electrical drawings and trying to finalise the kitchen!! So today is all about Easter Friyay F U N... WOOO!! I’m off into the big city with the girlies for some lunch and then the boys are coming to meet us later on... perfecto!! Plus any excuse to get out of my hi-vis (that seems to have taken over my life) and actually get glammed up for once 💃🏻 On that note, I hope everyone has an amazing Easter weekend filled with lots of love, fun and of course chocolate... lots of love to you all 😘 xx

👋🏼 T U E S D A Y... you have been a busy little day!! Is it just me or are the days and weeks just flying by atm?! Back at my second home aka the cinema tonight... this monthly membership we have treated ourselves too to get us out of the caravan is well and truly being hammered. Believe it or not I don’t even really like the cinema 🙄... the popcorn and prosecco on the other hand 🙋🏻‍♀️😂 anyways, I digress... I have just popped up the next blog post instalment for our house renovation. Link is in the bio... just incase I haven’t bored you enough with it all yet!! Have a lovely Tuesday IG 😘😘

RENOVATION VLOG WEEK 8 IS NOW LIVE (link in bio)!!

Let’s hope next week packs as many punches 👊🏼!! I hope everyone has had a great week and weekend too... I for one am absolutely pooped... so I’m off to get my pjs on and snuggle on the sofa... yay ☺️xxx

RENOVATION VLOG WEEK 7 IS LIVE (link in bio)!! It has been a very bizarre week this week... that naughty weather has caused us a few set backs... namely that we had to jump ship from Santana the Static because our water was totally frozen. Yup, no shower, no sink, no toilet = unideal!! But I am actually not complaining because it’s meant we have had a lovely few days staying at my parents and at our friends (in their very warm houses)!! Every cloud and all of that!! Fingers crossed though that normality will resume tomorrow and we can get back into Santana, start back on the renovation and maybe just maybe start to see the beginning of Spring...?!?! We live in hope... 🤞🏼 xxx p.s. picture above is of old kitchen because we have been to the @kbbmagazine kitchen show today at the NEC and it has got me super giddy about my new kitchen!! Not long now!!😆

This Monday has three words from me... ROCK MY STYLE!! I am absolutely buzzing today because I am over on @rockmystyleblog talking about my top tips for planning a home renovation 🙈 As a huge RMS fan and as someone who has taken so much inspiration from reading other peoples blogs on there over the years, this is a big big BIG deal for me!! Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think I would be popping up on their homepage!! I could pretend to be cool about the whole thing... but I am not, I’m as giddy as a horse 🐴 None of this would have been possible without all of you guys and your amazing support over the last year... so thank you so much❤️ I guess dreams do come true 🌈 Happy Monday you lovely lot xxx

WEEK 6 VLOG IS LIVE (link in bio)!! Another productive week!! It’s all getting pretty real now... the ground floor extension is up and the guys have even made a start on the first floor extension too 😆😆!! Doug and I are knee deep in floor plans and as per usual we are going round in circles on what we want!! I am so indecisive 🤦🏻‍♀️ it is literally a day of tape measuring, drawing and @pinterest’ing for us!! I hope everyone is having a lovely Saturday... the sun is finally shining YAY ☀️ xxx p.s. on the topic of the weather can someone please tell me this -10 that we are meant to be getting next week is some kind of bad joke?!! Does Mr Weather not know we live in a caravan!!!?! ❄️😭🤦🏻‍♀️

🎬 WEEK 5 VLOG IS LIVE OVER ON MY YOUTUBE CHANEL (link is in the bio)!! The weather hasn’t been too kind to us this week with snow, hail, wind and rain but we have soldiered on and still managed to make some good progress 👊🏼 The attic floor has gone back in and the brickies also managed to get a few days in and have started to build up the extension!! However, most importantly we have had a drama free week with the neighbours... long may that continue 🙌🏼 Head on over if you fancy a peak 👀 I have popped up a little slidey show before and after of our old bathroom above👆🏼... I can’t wait to be able to do some before and afters for the new house 😆 eeeekkkkk I so excited to move back in... atm it just doesn’t feel real!! I hope everyone has a fab Sunday xxx
