“Accent wall”

Morning Instas! I’ve got accent walls in every room of the bladdy house!! I like this snap though, if only because my little George is in it, and he looks like Denis the Menace 😍😘😜 Off to @roseandleeinteriors later to collect a fab @rebelwalls mural for my next commission for @westlodge_renovation
Have a great day folks!! #myhousethismonth #realinstahomes #luxuryinteriorsonabudget #rockinteriors #kidsroom #rockstar #aflashofgold #myinteriorstyletoday #freeupmyinsta

Had a lovely evening last night at the #iconiclightsxgrillodesigns event. Thanks so much @grillodesigns & @iconic_lights for inviting me - the goodie bag of dreams will be on my stories later 😍

• rainy day • {ok, I know I said I was fed up with the extreme heat but I’d like he sun back now, super gross out there today. I don’t envy the milkman delivering in the dark and wet mornings! Off to brunch with the NCT ladies and babes later this morning}

Summer is so meowgical, isn't it? I would like to keep the magic of summer but integrate school into the mix, just for some quiet time! The amount of words both my kiddos need to get out in a day has been astonishing me lately, props to their teachers because I don't even know...

Nothing has to be ‘perfect’ to be beautiful #frommygarden #dahliaseason #freeupmyinsta

It's been a hard day of boat painting, but I can share this photo of the card I made based on an embroidery design I drew and embroidered.

🇩🇪 inspiriert von @heartthoughts, möchte ich mehr Bilder teilen, die mir wirklich gefallen. Es ist so leicht seine eigene Interesse zu vernachlässigen, wenn man von Likes und die Reaktionen anderer Leuten abgelenkt ist. Ich mache Fotos, weil ich Schönheit sehe. Dafür sollte ich auch Fotos posten, die ich persönlich schön finde! •
🇬🇧 inspired by @heartthoughts, I’d like to share more photos that I really enjoy. It is so easy to neglect our own interests, when we are distracted by likes and the reactions of others. I take photographs because I see beauty. So I should also be posting photos that I find beautiful! •

And once the storm is over, you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, whether the storm is really over .
But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in .
That’s what this storm’s all about .

Slimers extraordinaire!! It has taken about 6 attempts and a trip to town to get more supplies though....the last pic is one of yesterday’s attempts. Most of it’s in the bin but there are traces still around the taps, on the floor and on various items of clothing. 🙄

Had a sort out in my workroom at home... haven’t been in here for about 6 months as my daughter was using it as a GCSE revision space. I’ve just peeled all the history, maths and post it notes off the wall 😫 eugh, she ‘and’ me are glad to see the back of those pieces of paper forever! 👎🏽 Now it’s light and lovely again ready for more creative projects, which I’m just starting to think about. Even though my kids are grown and we are (finally) no longer governed by the school holidays, August is still down time for me/us. And it’s non negotiable. Hanging out with my family has always been a priority, so whatever sacrifices we have to make along the way and extra hours we have to work throughout the rest of the year, we’re prepared to do it to enjoy as much of the Summer together as possible.
We still juggle the shop and some admin stuff between us but at a much slower pace. Making the most of the quiet season in store. Instead of worrying what we should be doing, we just do enough to keep things going. There’s a difference 😉 it didn’t happen overnight but we got there eventually.
How about you?.. if you’re a small business owner are you managing to squeeze in some downtime?.. or finding it stressful to keep everything going?.. x x x

In July @hallmarkcreative invited me to The Greenhouse at Bradford College, School of Art to host a professional development workshop with their creative teams. These were the test tiles that were made in the morning session. More details on the blog.

At 25 weeks pregnant I want to remember these things - I feel really good right now! I had a bad time for a while, but I feel like myself again (but heavier) and I feel motivated. I've been cleaning and tidying and organising like hell so nesting has officially begun. Gary is painting and doing lots of the big jobs, we're both cooing over tiny clothes and talking to baby as if he's already here. His name feels official, we love it so much, and can't wait to meet him. I'm really liking my pregnant body even with all its struggles, and I love feeling baby move about. Last night I actually SAW my belly move which was crazy, but Gary is yet to catch this moment. I miss family and old friends, but we go to Liverpool next month and me and bump will get to reconnect with everyone. I feel good. Things are happy. 💛💖💙

So sorry for the radio silence of late life has just taken over and felt super busy & I’ve very much wanted to feel present with things that’s been going on. On top of that it’s the summer hols and all my 3 boys are home so the perfect time for indulging yet most days I get into bed and not recall what we’ve done as I’m very rarely without my phone or laptop in front of me 😔I’ve missed out on so many things recently with the constant distraction of work and very rarely allowing myself time to switch off, I’m conscious It’s taking over LIVING and I’m falling into that insta trap.It really is times like this when being a small business gets really tough. I don’t have anyone else to fall back on, it’s just little me running Familyhood and despite Chris being around to help he works such long shifts I’m exhausted most evenings before even starting on anything business related. Three children, no child care and living miles from family is not the easiest but it’s a battle thats worth it as it means I get to pursue my dream and for that I’m so grateful ✨I actually didn’t intend to break for so long last week & since returning from my weekend away I’ve felt so guilty at having no time to post or get back to so many of you. Please tell me im not alone with this Insta guilt?🙈I know the world isn’t going to stop because I haven’t posted in a few days but perhaps because I know without this platform I wouldn’t be able to keep doing this it feels weird taking breaks🤷🏾‍♀️I then end up comparing myself to others who seem to post regular and so the cycle continues 🙄SO after racking up some unnecessary guilt, Im going to do things on here in ways that work for me and my little fam and cutting out those unhealthy comparisons 🙌🏽 Inspired by the lovely @allison_sadler_ I’m going to #freeupmyinsta So even if things go a little quiet for a few days, please know I’m still bts working on all things Familyhood. Big love to you all for sticking with me and continuing to make this possible💋On the plus side taking this impromptu break means I can spend today indulging on all your lovely posts I’ve missed. Honestly thank you so much for your eternal support ✨Have a fab day ✌🏽

Recently I’ve been setting time aside for ‘worry time’ where I allow all my worries to come to the surface and down my arm, through my hand and pencil onto paper. (You should try it, it’s enlightening, relieving.) But yesterday things turned, I became angry. I’m so tired of my own worrying b.s that I’m retaliating. An interesting place to be.

Sometimes you gotta just post what you want !

Mr weatherMan has said the weather isn't meant to be this sunny today, but were hoping it changes later today for a friend of ours as they are having a teddy bears picnic party. 
The kids are super excited and trying to narrow down their teddy bear choice as i have told them they are only allowed to take one! 
I cant cope with having to be responsible for three children and then more than three teddies- chaos!!
