The downside of this gorgeous weather and my new outdoor space to I seem to live in now is it’s easy to forget I have a whole house to keep on top off so yesterday I managed to find time to give the indoors some loving too (well, I went round with a duster and the vacuum). I also remembered to water all my house plants ... I needed a nap after that job! Enjoy your day lovelies xx

Ok, confession time ... I’m not into Game of Thrones 🙀 There, I said it. At the risk of upsetting anyone, I watched the very first episode last week and just couldn’t see what the fuss was about and the fact I’ve not watched another one since kind of says it all really. I’m not a fantasy Lord of the Rings kind of girl, anyone else with me when it comes to GoT or am I a lone voice? Anyway, here’s a totally unrelated post of my kitchen and the sun’s out so all good! Enjoy your day lovelies xx

So anyone else like me? Whenever I redecorate a space - inside or out - it takes a wee while for it to evolve. Things get moved round, frippery gets added bit by bit and cushions get bought, tried out for a day, then returned to the shop and another batch brought in. I picked up a few really lovely cushions yesterday and I’m much happier with them than the previous collection. And with new candles, plants and fire pit I think this area can now be added to the “done” list ... that is until the next time I fall in love with a certain throw or a must-have bolster! I’ve added a couple of stories showing off my bits and bobs. Now all I need is the sunshine ☀️ Enjoy your day lovelies xx

The British weather tricked me; it made me think that after last year we were going to have nothing but glorious sunshine from Easter onwards and so I spent ages getting my garden spruced up and adding new outdoor frippery only to discover that’s just not the case. Grey, drizzly with a very small chance of warmth about once a week. My daughter suggested I’d actually turned into a meme as I sat outside last night while the temperatures plummeted and the rain started to fall “because if I’ve spent so much time making it look pretty I’m damn sure gonna sit in it.” So here’s a totally unrelated photo (other than the fact the sun was out when I took it) and I’m off out there now to drink my coffee and freeze my brass monkeys off. Enjoy your Saturday lovelies xx

Lets talk telly! I don’t mean the latest episode of GoT or whether or not Hastings is still H, I mean what do you do with your TV in a room ... do you embrace all 42 inches and style your room around it, hide it with greenery or disguise it with a painting? I’ve always had fairly small sets (my lovely man calls them “caravan tellies”) but he recently gave me a rather snazzy big TV (I think it’s because he got bored watching his favourite shows in miniature 🤣) that’s just out of shot in this photo - I’ve posted it in today’s stories. I’d love to hear your thoughts on how you style around a television 📺

Morning lovelies 😘 Thank you so much for all your love and comments on my post yesterday. It’s a good job you liked it because here’s another photo (but it is a different angle so that’s ok!). So apologies for a wee bit of garden spam but it is gloriously sunny and I really, really love my new space 💚 Enjoy your day and I hope the sun is shining on you xx

Ta dah! I‘ve finished my outdoor room and I love it - it’s very me, it’s filled with colour, plants and frippery. Yesterday I planned to spend the day on the second stage of Operation Garden but once I got my cushions out that was it, it was just too comfy to curl up here. So in between the rain (yes, I had to grab all the cushions, throws and rugs each time!) I basically spent the day here with lots of coffee and lots of magazines. But today I will get started on the hard work. Promise! More photos in my stories xx

I don’t want to speak too soon but there’s this bright light in the sky. I think I’m right in saying that in the olde days, they called it the sun? Quick, sun’s out, cushions out ... I’m off for a coffee in the garden. Wishing you all the sunniest of Saturdays xx

Oh glorious sunshine, where are you ☔️ It’s May and I have to put lights on in the house during the day as it’s too dark and I’ve got a brand new garden furniture set that I haven’t even sat on yet! So here’s a big splash of colour to brighten up the greyest of weeks. Enjoy your day lovelies xx

I was about to say “happy Monday” lovelies but of course we’re well into the week already! Hope you enjoyed a top bank holiday? I worked so hard in my garden, with the help of my wee boy, and I posted photos in my Stories over the weekend. There’s still so much more to do but rather than looking at the whole job as too big and then just ignoring it all, I’ve broken it down into three far more manageable areas. Next part of Operation Garden? Digging up the worst patch of grass in living memory and having stones instead. Oh, and there’s an awful lot of cutting back to do - the further you get down my garden, the more like a jungle it becomes. But that’s for another weekend. Anyone else tackling their garden this year? I’d love to hear your plans - especially if like me, you’re doing it with a non-existent budget! Time for coffee and enjoy your Tuesday xx

I redecorated my kitchen a couple of months ago and I still love it just as much today - it makes me smile every time I walk in to it.
I mention this because I was reading something the other day about house trends and how grey is passé and we all need some kind of metallic wall. But this got me thinking .... really?
OK, if you’re looking for a steer on how to decorate your home then yes, I see why dictated trends can help, but if your grey interior still makes you smile then why would you even think about changing it?
Because colour is closest to my vintage heart I’ve stuck with my reds and blues and greens and yellows while the trends were shouting “monochrome”, “blush” or “spiced honey” at us all. And while I do love to see them in other people’s homes, so many of them just aren’t me.
So whatever the experts tell you, decorate your home for you - not for the likes, not for the Gram and not because you’re being told to. That way it’ll always be your favourite place on earth.
And here endeth the lesson! Enjoy your day lovelies xx

Happy Saturday lovelies and isn’t this the perfect morning to be painting decking! Yep, Operation Garden is is full swing over the bank holiday - I’ve got a lovely long to-do list with the highlight being the arrival of my new garden furniture on Monday and then I get to do the faffing and frippery bits. But until then, it’s hardy gloves on and time to get to work. Maybe just one more coffee here? What’s everyone else got planned over the long weekend? Enjoy your day xx
