Such a lovely morning with @annarowlandsonphoto taking some pics of us in the park๐Ÿ“ธ๐ŸŒณ
As you can see, some of us were far more natural in front of the camera than others. Think I need to take some tips from him๐Ÿ˜‚

Nothing to report over here today๐Ÿ™‹๐Ÿผ Other than I've cleaned the bathroom and made some super-greens soup๐ŸŒช๐ŸŒฟ
I know, it's totally wild in my little corner of Instagram๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ Need to calm it down really.....

We were up early for some photos with the lovely @annarowlandsonphoto , but then the rain scuppered our plansโ˜”๏ธ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
There's always tomorrow? Boris has the right idea.....back to bed with his ๐Ÿฉ๐Ÿ˜‚

Heading home from "home" in a minute, as I've got lots on tomorrow (including another encounter with the ๐Ÿ–Šโœจ๐Ÿ™„) Just had to share a quick pic of this lovely shelf in my Mums kitchen.......which used to belong to fabulous Sally ( @gettingstuffdoneinheels ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ) Mum didn't steal it, there was an exchange of words (and ๐Ÿ’ท) I promise!๐Ÿ˜‚ Anyway, it looks perfect in its new home! Styled by moi๐Ÿ’๐Ÿผ (obvs)

Well she's only gone and DONE IT๐Ÿ˜ณ
After years of putting up with my peer pressure, Zoe really should have seen this one coming?!๐Ÿ˜‚
Head on over and say hello to her @from_coast_to_country_home ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ
Now......Zoe and I have been friends for almost sixteen years now, meaning I've lived as long with her in my life as I did without her?!๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
We've been bridesmaids for each other, and I'm very lucky to be godmother to one of her gorgeous boys (I prefer fairy godmother?!)โœจ
While we used to get our kicks grinding to early noughties R&B bangers wearing ra-ra skirts on a Saturday night, these days we are more likely to be seen sporting a Breton stripe and sipping tea whilst leafing through The White Company catalogue. There's no one I'd rather have made that journey into "adulting" with ๐Ÿ‘ฏ
I hope you all โค๏ธ her as much as I do! Get ready to swoon over her beautiful home (I'm hoping she shares pics of the last one too, I wouldn't want you to miss out?!)๐Ÿค”
Right, enough from meโœ‹๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ You're welcome by the way.....

Think we've just found a sweet new ride courtesy of my Mama. Boris seems to have settled in anyway.....๐Ÿ˜Œ๐Ÿ˜‚

๐ŸŒปMorning๐ŸŒป
Yes I'm still swooning over my beautiful flowers from the equally beautiful @love.yourself.lean โค๏ธ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
Off to see my lovely friend this morning.....Zoe with the good house (If I were Beyoncรฉ, then that's my equivalent of "Becky with the good hair"๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ˜‚ Although I'm pretty sure she hasn't slept with my husband๐Ÿ˜ณ) Anyway, Zoe, yes remember that house? Well the quest to get her (and most importantly that house๐Ÿ˜) on Insta continues.....๐Ÿ•ต๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

A day at home was exactly what I needed today, to get my figurative sh*t together ๐Ÿ™…๐Ÿผ
A few people (when I say a few, I literally mean like three of you, and even that might be pushing it?!) asked for a photo of the not so #shitchen from the other end of the room. So here it is! Don't tell me I'm not giving the people what they want to see?๐Ÿ˜‚
Looks like another Monday is on its way out๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ Thank goodness....

Faffing around at home today, enjoying a slow Sunday and enjoying admiring my new botanical prints from @onedotworld ๐ŸŒฟ
I know, I know....first I'm painting things in #downpipe and now I'm jumping on the botanicals bandwagon. Who am I?๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ
Blog post coming this week on the updates I've made to the dining room using some new pieces from @onedotworld ๐ŸŒฟโœจ
It's been one of my favourite shops in nearby Haslemere since we moved here, AND they've got a SALE on in the store NOW๐Ÿ˜ณ until the end of August๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
I'm hoping to get there next week and do a story or two so that you can see just how fabulous it is!

Just putting this little face on my feed today, because I miss him and I haven't posted a pic of him in what feels like forever๐Ÿคท๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ๐Ÿ’™
I love seeing all of the photos that the Insta community share of their beautiful children, but it struck me today that I have just 35 photos of Teddy. Just 35 photos to last me a lifetime, when most Mums must have thousands (Insta-Mums probably hundreds in one week?!) So here is just one, of my cherished 35.โœจ Oh how I wish with every ounce of me that this was so very different. ๐Ÿ’™
