#myhousethismonth "Bedside"
.
Iast thing at night and first thing in the morning I have a cuppa, I mean lying in bed all snuggled up with my hands wrapped around a cuppa just feels so good.For me Its a time for reflection, a time to have a moment with my own thoughts. 🙂 I just love it. .
.
I love my bedroom now ,the colours, the textures, it feels luxurious it feels relaxing and peaceful, I suppose just how a bedroom should feel. I look forward to going to bed but equally I look forward to starting my day in this room.
Its my haven ❤️
.
Do you have a bedtime routine? for me it's PJ's on , clean teeth, jump into bed with a cuppa ,well not litterly, I put the cuppa down before I get into bed 🙈 then I sit propped up with my pillows, snuggle in and just enjoy the moment whilst sipping my brew.Total bliss 😉
.
.
Oh goodness all this talk of bed is making me tired.!!!....is it bedtime yet 🤣

#myhouserhismonth Before and after
I must apologize for the quality of the before pictures but hopefully the pictures should give you an idea of how popshomeandgarden looked a few years ago.
.
The extension was started one sunny day as hubster and I were enjoying a relaxing day in the garden. He (hubby) literally stood up and started digging out the foundations " I'm going to build an extension" he said. Ha talk about no planning lol.
.
Anyway the extension was a family affair, my daughter dug out foundations, and generally got on doing anything she could, my son who is a plasterer also helped with anything and everything, my son in law is s joiner so he constructed the roof along with anything else he could help with.
.
My hubster and the rest of my family did an awesome job.im so proud of them they fitted the kitchen,layed tiles, plastered, dug out, painted, landscaped the garden...they basically did everything. I am not sure how much everything cost, but I know it wasn't a mahoosive budget.we must of saved a fortune..I can't thank my husband and family enough, you guys rock.👍
.
Of course I did an important job too, I mean who else is skilled enough to make zillions of brews. 😱

#myhousethismonth "Living room"
.
This is a not much shown side of the living room,it's quite plain and difficult to photograph. I love the light in this room it's really uplifting, when your just wanting to relax and unwind this room makes you do exactly that....
.
Hubby is outside in the rain installing a plate to fix the large parosol onto. He isn't content with the base it comes with he has to engineer a more robust solution..he's crazy!!!...we need some shade over the bottom patio area, when it's sunny we get no relief from the heat of the sun so having shade will make sitting on the bottom patio a lot more pleasurable .
.
.
Its not sunny today it's chucking it down. So I'll be saying all those sayings we say when it's raining after a dry spell, such as, "the gardens need it". "great weather for ducks".....I don't mind the rain but I hope it's not here for long....
.
Have a super Saturday lovelies.what are you up to today!??

#myhouserhismonth "Plant it "
.
This little guy seems to be thriving,I don't know what I'm doing right but it definitely is looking good. I love plants in the house they bring life into each room. Unfortunately not all my plants have survived,some have gone to plant heaven.😬
.
Anyway on a better note it's Friday,for me that means out for lunch ,such usually consists of a coffee and cake, there are much healthier options on display,but who doesn't love a cake 😳 I just can't resist a bit of fresh cream plonked on either a sponge or meringue.. especially when accompanied with fresh strawberries.
.
Storm whoever came and went yesterday, it didn't seem to affect the plants in the garden so I'm thanking the storm god's for being kind. The weather today is a lot calmer👍so that means I won't be trying to calm my hair in an attempt to look presentable. I hate it when you get ready to go out and as soon as you step out of the door you look like some mad professor.😆

#myhousethismonth "Starts with a B"
.
How could I not share a picture of this @bangolufsen speaker. Its my absolute favourite thing in the house that begins with a"B".🎵 Well maybe that's not entirely true, urm bulldog, bed, bath are up there with the favourite things that start with a B but I'm going with this photo so it will have to do !!! .
My favourite pastime is music ( not sure if I've hinted at that before), urm yes Pop your always going on about music ...😳 I live for music, I just can't get enough of it. I have recently discovered the "blues"
So I'm listening to lots of different artists, my goodness I can't believe I've gone through life and only just discovered it. Its amazeballs!!! Especially played on this bad boy😬 .
If anyone is into the blues can you give me the heads up on some artists to listen to, please x .

#myhousethismonth #focalpoint .
I don't know if I should tell you this!!!....I mean the story behind how I became the owner of this most gorgeous chair....oh ok then you twisted my arm.😆 .
I first discovered this chair a good few years ago when we first started our journey of changing up our house, we had literally set up an eBay account and sold all our existing decor which was mainly Laura Ashley.
.
We discovered boconcept after searching online for contemporary furniture, a few weeks later we visited a store. Well to say I was blown away is an understatement. I was immediately drawn to this chair called the"imola chair". I said to hubster oh wowza Lloyd I want that chair, he loved it too but being the sensible one out of the two us, replied with a "no,!!! we need to furnish the whole room and it's an investment we can't justify"...I was totally gutted,but being a good wife left it at that.
.
.
Long post I know, but hang on in there!!!
.
.
Ok so we visited the store on quite a few occasions, buying furniture and accessories every time., I would say to hubby ,"oh darling I really want that chair" he , would answer with "no" ( this is how he became known as"the man who says NO")
I tried everything, including, not talking to him , buttering him up, moaning, blackmail, but he dug his heals in and said "NO" .
.
Then a few years after discovering the chair, I was admitted to hospital via ambulance after collapsing and becoming unconscious (in the doctor's surgery of all places)..I was very poorly and was told I'd suffered a stroke and bleeding on the brain......ok so, as I was lying in hospital and had come around Lloyd was at my bedside he was holding my hand and crying,( bless him ).... Now at this point I honestly didn't know if I was going to be ok....buy I thought right!!! Here's my last chance...go for it Pop!!!
So I said ,"Lloyd please can I have the imola chair"..... guess what!!!!....he said...""""YES""""
.
Talk about getting them at the right time lol....hit them when they are down ,that's my motto!!!!...I'm now the very proud owner of the "imola chair"...!!!!!
.
.
Well done if your reading this...you stuck it out lol
.
.
Happy sunny Sunday !!!!!

#myhousethismonth #bestfriendday .
This man is my best friend, hubster, superstar, superhero aka the man who says "NO"
(This was us on holiday about 12 years ago.) Hubby played a blinder again this morning
. """"This is a bit of a warning message too"""""
.

Ok so I popped to the downstairs loo this morning and automatically turned the little lock that is located under the door handle.now I have just got into the habit of doing this,but really I don't need to lock it as there is just me and Lloyd in the house.
.
I came to open the door I tried to turn the little lock and guess what??! It didn't work 🤔
.
I had a bit of a moment of panic but then as always, I shouted to Lloyd, " help I'm locked in " he came to the rescue armed with a screwdriver and an allen key. He passed me the said instruments of escape through the window, I took all the screws out and he by this time was back in the house on the other side of the door. Luckily he took the door mechanism off and hey presto, I escaped!!!
.
Now this little act of rescue might not seem much , after all he didn't rescue me from a burning building or a sinking ship,but he rescued me , that's what best friends do, they are there for you no matter what. Thank you Lloyd your just the best.
.
.
Here's the warning, if your in the house on your own don't lock yourself in the loo, or you might be there for some time!!!

Its been a beautiful day here today teddy bulldog is cooling down on the cold tiles, what is it with dogs and the sun? One minute he's outside roasting in the sun the next he's on the cold tiles,he repeats this about a dozen times in the space of a hour . I try to coax him into the shade but he just doesn't listen. I thought he was going deaf but to be truthful he has selective hearing because the minute he hears his food bowl he turns from a lazy bulldog to a young whippet .
.
This is my entry for #Myhousethismonth "Different angle". I don't know how this picture fits the criteria for the theme today but it's far to late to take another picture so a picture of Teddy Bulldog it is 😳

#myhousethismonrh favourite flower

A bit of a cheat for me this post, why ?? Because this technically isn't a flower.
Its an ornamental tree called a Cornus Kousa "China girl" it produces masses of the most amazing flower like bracts every year. As the seasons change so does the leaves, changing from green to orange then red in the autumn.
.
If you peek at the back of this picture you will see one of my other favourites ,the peony. To be truthful I love all flowers, I'm not a gardener by any stretch of the imagination but man do I love the garden.
.
Oh on another note this was my entry for yesterday,the post I posted yesterday was supposed to be for today 😊.I completely mixed the days up......oh wow I'm such a rebel 🤣😋😋 .

#myhousethismonrh * DINING *
.
Halloumi salad with sweet chilli sauce mmmm it was delicious, it's my favourite meal especially during the warmer weather. .
Talking about weather it's been a beautiful day here in Cumbria, hubster went out on his motorbike for an hour or so. Im happy that he has his bike but boy do I worry about him when he's out. We live only a couple of miles away from Hadrian's wall so he followed that for a while. Its a beautiful ride out especially on a bike.
.
Hubby is originally from Birmingham so living in such a rural area is so different for him. Ha ha that's just reminded me our new car has voice activated sat nav ... hubby was trying to enter a destination and it didn't understand his Brummie accent lol...he tried a few times but with no success...it's obviously my job from now on 🤣. .

Catching up at work after being off for a week is such a reality check 🤣 I thought oh yeah this is payback for having such a lovely week off...only joking it was fine, yes we were busy but that's fine too. .

#myhousethismonth #favourite room
My ever so simple room, my ever so relaxing room , my ever so chill out room ,my everything room ...I love this room so much, it's not perfect and I can see how it could be improved but overall I'm pretty pleased with it. I love spending time in this room it's so light and bright, it's really uplifting. I feel very lucky to be the owner of this room😊
