Perfect Sunday morning vibes there Blakey! 👌🏼 I’ve done very little myself yet this morning either ☕️🛏 Housework is not appealing to me at the moment so I’ve taken a leaf out of the kitties’ book and had a very chilled out day so far.
I’m heading over to my Mum’s for lunch soon so I’d better get a wriggle on actually! 😬 @eileenlloyd2

I had such a lovely morning pot painting @thebiscuitfactorygallery
Kay from @thecrafthood_ ran a gorgeous relaxed session and I’m very happy with my little pot!
Fab to catch up with @snuffleupagusish too 😽

Agnes is enjoying her breakfast blueberries and raspberries this morning. She’s a little treasure and is really as good as gold albeit very cheeky!

I’m trying to encourage her to be a little braver and venture further out from her basket bedroom and fruit treats certainly help. As much as she likes green veg it apparently doesn’t have the same allure! 🙈 (She’s scared of the floor and will only stand on rugs or towels!) #rabbit #bunny #bunniesofinstagram #dwarflop #tortie #houserabbit #theresarabbitinmykitchen #myhousethismonth #basket

The sun is shining! ☀️ It’s streaming through the window and we’ll ignore the fact that it makes it very obvious they’re in need of a good clean! 🙈

I’ve recently moved this glorious Easter cactus and despite cats and children constantly bumping into it, I think it likes its new spot.
Those pink buds would certainly indicate so! I picked this up last year from Gumtree and I reckon it’s around 40 years old which is as old as me! Christ- I wish I looked that fresh and pretty in the sun! 😹

We had such a gorgeous evening last night with our lovely friends!
Much fun was had and even more gin was drunk.

Thanks @mexi___can for bringing your beautiful family and for the gin glasses gift! 😽

Sometimes it’s nice to set the table and light candles for dinner isn’t it? It brightens up a weekday evening a little while we wait for those lighter spring evenings to arrive.

I do feel as though I’m ready for the weekend already and we’re not even done with Monday yet! 😭
A few little home comforts make all the difference to a lovely family evening good wind down before another early start in the morning though. (I’ll not mention the big pile of ironing I had to do as that might spoil the insta illusion 😹) @newinteriorsontheblock #homecomforts #mytable #diningspace #howihome

Still head over heels with this colour and now planning where else I could use it in the house. I’m thinking hallway or bedroom perhaps? The makeover of this room seems so long ago- it’s absolutely time for the next! It’s like a sort of decorating #cabinfever 😹

More Ercol- ever present in this house really and it’s not just the chair. Brownie points to anyone who can identify the table from that flash of leg! 😹

Does everyone have surfaces where clutter just builds up despite all best intentions to the contrary?
This spot in the bathroom is a haven for homeless objects which seem to gather here regularly. I decided I’d had quite enough of their shenanigans and so I sorted them all out at the weekend and decided that it would now house just this one dish.
My lovely friend @katherineharhoo bought me this and not only does it feature my name initial, it’s also that of my beautiful Grandma Catherine whose name I share.
We lost her 16 years ago but every day I wear her rings and every night I put them on this little dish and remember her 🖤

Can you spot the reclusive Ercol in its jungle habitat?
It’s a shame I didn’t notice the red car over the road ruining my shot when I took it this morning! 🙈🙀 @thehappychair #happychairhome #ercol #goldsmith myhousethismonth #monochrome with a hint of #plant @myhousethismonth @__itslucy__

Life certainly is gay at Whitley Bay! 😹

We’re very lucky to live at the coast and it’s lovely knowing that the beach is just down the road.
I lov these vintage railway poster prints. I think we’ll probably end up with more from other UK destinations that we visit as I’m planning a travel gallery on a different wall. Looking for inspo if anyone has any suggestions?
#storyofmyhome @storyofmyhome #poeticlicense and #forgiveme seemed appropriate for this one- it’s kind of a poem on the poster but excuse the fact that it’s a very short one!

What’s nicer than the promise of spring that a bright yellow bunch of daffodils bring? They’re such an easy addition at this time of year too.

I love it when the sun comes out - even if it’s just for a few minutes!
What I definitely don’t love is how it shows up how dirty my windows are though! 😬

I think my plants are happy to see a little sunshine though 🌱☀️ #goinggreen

My bits and bobs amongst the plants were all picked up at Tynemouth market. I may have to pop there for a visit tomorrow and see if I can find some more treasures 🤞🏻@trash_i_treasure @storyofmyhome
