A little living room tour

I can't believe it's coming up to a year since we moved into our house, and I think it's safe to say that we've massively transformed the house and have done so much work! As always there's still a huge long list of things to do, but I do feel like we've made all the room liveable and pretty much sorted with just a few messy edges to finish off etc.

You may have seen over on the lovely Vicki from The Owl and the Accordion blog featuring my home but I thought I would show you a few completely unedited photos of our before too! So here we go:

So we ripped up the carpet and exposed the floorboards hoping to just be able to sand them and leave them bare, but unfortunately they were covered in a thick wood stain which was super hard to get off as hard as Rob tried with a sander. So we decided to paint them white, a job which we've only just finished this easter! Of course the first thing to go was the horrible horrible yellow walls, and upon closer inspection the walls were in pretty bad condition too so we had them replastered before deciding to paint them pink. I do really love the pink, but recently I have been feeling like it is slightly too dark and am contemplating perhaps painting a few walls white or lightening up some walls to make it feel a bit airier. What do you think?!

So here are the after shots, well after shots taken in December (hence the start of the christmas decorations!) and we've changed bits here and there, and repainted the floor!

Obviously we really want to change the fire place, but that would mean changing our whole heating system which we just cannot afford to do right now! One of the reasons I feel our room feels quite small (other than the fact it is a small room with lots in it!) is that our sofa and chair are quite dark which makes them appear to take up more space. I am always lusting over new sofas, but again we can't afford one. I would really love a grey sofa and feel it would lighten up the room and tie in really well with our colour scheme (other than it being my favourite colour!) But instead of buying a whole new sofa I started to think about just changing the covers of our exisiting one. I was shown this challenge and some transforamtions here and think it works really well! Here are a few examples:

Shelf life


So I may have mentioned quite a few times with all this house stuff about putting up shelves. I've become shelf obsessed. I feel like shelfs in a home are where you can show your personality, and tell a story of your life. My favourite ones contains favourite books, pictures, heirlooms, found objects, plants and collections. I love objects that tell stories, and I love the fact you can display those stories on your walls. 

I love clutter, but it has to be organised, when shelves become dumping grounds it really tends to wind me up! Everything has to have its place, but it doesn't have to be perfect! A little like organised clutter. I love that objects and style can change as the seasons come and go, as the family grows and changes and tastes develop. So basically I've got big plans for our shelves, they're coming along nicely, but I always love a bit of inspiration! 

So that's about it...just thought you needed to know about my shelf obsession.

big things


So for the past few months, well since before Christmas really things have been a little crazy over here. I've started a new job, we've both been working overtime and our free time has been spent looking for houses to buy. But I'm so excited to share with you, that we found a house (about the fourth we made an offer on!) and all is going through smoothly (fingers and toes doubly crossed!)

I know perhaps I shouldn't share until everything is 100% confirmed, but its been ages since we've known and I'm just too excited by it all to keep it in any more. 

We are so incredibly lucky to be in this position, with very generous family helping us, because let's face it, there would be absolutely no way we would be able to do this without it. Hopefully this new start will mean that things from now on will be a little smoother and stable, in terms of finance and planning into the future. Owning our own home has been a dream of ours for such a long time, and to be honest we never expected it to come true! Not this soon anyway! 

Sometimes I just can't believe the way my life has panned out. If you'd told me 5 years ago that by 27 I'd be married, with a child and about to own my first home, I would have laughed in your face and gallivanted away over the Welsh hills, but here I am. And here I'll stay...(let the storm rage on, the cold never bothered me anyway) Sorry, what?

So anyway, back to real life. I've been busy dreaming, planning and of course pinning my way to our future home. Even though we're not going to have tons of money to throw at the new house and make it into our dream home, I'm just so excited that we can decorate it exactly how we want, and plan for changes in the future. Because we can, because it will be ours! 

All I can think about are carpet free floors, white walls and lots of light. Our new house isn't huge, so we need to utilise space and light really well. Hopefully all we will need to do begin with is strip floors and walls and repaint and here's some my inspiration board on Pinterest: 

Follow Abigail Oliver's board Home sweet home on Pinterest.


But all I am really dreaming of is a new kitchen! We are going to be loosing a little bit of living space downstairs (but gaining a bedroom!) but the future plan is to extend out and create a lovely kitchen with a breakfast room which I would hope would be the main living space in the house. I've been lusting over big open spaces, with room for a large table, shelving for books, toys and crafts and lots of light. I would love to put in big roof windows such as these from VELUX online  to really make the most of the light and make it feel airy and big!)

I'm in love with this kitchen and living space from one of my all time favourite (and inspiring) blogs Junkaholique. I've also got a separate board on Pinterest just for all my kitchen lusting!

So there you have it, our big news. I'm so excited for the next few months, hoping everything goes well and ready to start making our first home. I can't wait to share our progress with you!

little glimpses



Hi! So here I am, finally back at the computer after what seems like a million years. Theo and I have just returned from a mini adventure to Malvern, to take my car to have a little rest until we can afford to fix her...so I'm carless for the first time in years, we'll see how that one goes, but I'm thinking it will be ok!

Anyway, I thought I would just show you a few little glimpses into our new home. It's far from done, there are lots of things shoved in corners, only a few frames hung and still so much sorting to do. But for now it's starting to feel a lot like home!
Please excuse the mess around the edges!









so there you have it. Hopefully we will get make it even more homely when our Christmas decorations go up, and we get around to hanging more frames! And hopefully I'll have time to take some better photos too...

Recently around here

Right so, things have been crazy these last few weeks. It will be officially two weeks in the new house tomorrow, my birthday next week, then Christmas a few days after. How is it the middle of December already? And how is it nearly 2012? I'm completely baffled as to where this year has gone...oh yeh I've not slept and been covered in sick for most of it!

My sister left on Saturday, it was sad as the week went too quickly, but we had a really nice time. Just going out and walking around nice places and shops was really good for me I think, to make me remember what I was interested in and how I was before the little monster came along. From now on I'm going to try really hard to dedicate some more 'me' time to myself, so I can figure out what I want to do in the future and how to do it.

We decorated the house and made it all Christmassy over the weekend, and it's very cosy indeed! I'm really looking forward to Christmas this year, and even though Theo won't really know what it's all about I'm so happy that it's his first and can't wait for all the ones to come in the future.

We have slowly and surely been sorting more and more of the house out, I need to go round and take less rushed pictures than I did before, especially as its looking so pretty at the moment!

But for now here a few photos of what we have been up to lately, courtesy of my phone:

The move

It's nearly been two weeks since I last posted, but as I mentioned before we moved this week, and this is probably the first time I've been able to sit down at the computer!

Theo's doing this thing at the moment, which by saying this I will probably jinx it, but he has been staying asleep when I put him down for naps and leave him. When I used to do this he would wake about 5 or 10 minutes after I left him, but since being here he has been doing much better.

Anyway, so I've had a really busy couple of weeks. First of all there was a bit of drama as my car failed it's MOT when I was up at my mums. Naturally I thought this was the end of the world, it is quite annoying, and expensive, but probably not worth getting ridiculously upset about. So anyway, that meant that I had to stay up at my mums for a while, which was good.

When I returned we had a pretty intense day of packing on the Tuesday. Rob's mum took Theo for a few hours in the morning which was great, but for the rest of the day it was a bit of a nightmare. Babies and packing definitely don't mix. But we got there in the end and celebrated with a final Burger Joint. (We seriously love that place!)

The next day was move day, and my mum and Andy came down to help. They had hired a van for us and helped move and clean. They were such a great help, we definitely wouldn't have been able to do it without them. I'm so thankful that we have lots of supportive family around us to help out and do such a lot for us. But we promise we won't be moving any time soon! In the afternoon Rob's Grandparents came to help out too, as well as Rob's mum. It took two trips to get all the stuff over to the new place, and it was a total mess by the time we'd finished unloading the second van. But once again all the extra help was great, as it was pretty quick. That evening I just moved boxes and things around to their relevant places, but didn't dare to start unpacking, but Rob of course put up the tv, priorities and everything. My mum and Andy were staying the night to help out again the next day, so we all got fish and chips to treat ourselves for working so hard!

The following day people helped cleaning the old flat for us, and then Rob and I had to go back to hand our keys in and have an inspection. I won't go into that now as it will just make me mad...our agents are proper arseholes....anyway, going back to the old flat felt weird. It was an alright flat, but compared to the house I just can't believe we really lived there. I didn't feel that sad about leaving it, not like I did with the first flat. There were just too many things that annoyed me about it, and I just want to be rid of it and the area and the agency. The new house really is perfect. The more and more I go out and return to it, or spend more time in it, I fall even more in love with it. I really hope we can stay here and it will suit us for quite a while, as I don't think we will be needing anything else from a house, that is maybe until our family grows a bit....(aaahh)

Right, here are a few photos, in various states of sorted:












There are a few more bits and pieces to sort out and another room or two to photograph...but thats about it, this is our humble little home, and it makes my heart happy!

My sister is here to visit for the week, and it's really lovely to have our new house to be able to feel all homely and comfortable in. I'm excited to have her around and to explore the new area, as well as show her my other favourite places in Bristol.

hopefully I'll be back soon with more news and photos, and a redesigned blog!

The child

ahh this weekend has been a funny one. Theo is ill, poor little sick baby. He's had a little bit of a stuffy runny nose for a few days earlier this week, but on Friday he came down with full blown baby cold and has been feeling sorry for himself ever since.

It's tough, poor little thing, he's been being sick and whining all day, and just not himself at all. Last night when he woke up in the middle of the night crying (well attempting to cry as he has no voice, so it's a bit of a whispering whinge) and after trying to give him some ibuprofen and him sicking it straight back up again I sort of felt completely useless. I didn't really know what I could do to help him, and I felt totally out of control. I felt like I was a child and there is this tiny person who is depending on me to make them feel better. For the first time I felt pretty out of my depth and forgot that I'm the one who's supposed to know what to do and to make everything better again. It's not a very nice feeling.

But anyway, we still managed to have a somewhat ok weekend. I decided not to go to the gig on Friday night, because I really didn't want to leave Theo, not that Rob isn't capable but I just didn't feel comfortable as he was feeling really bad.  I was gutted, but oh well there will be a next time I guess. On Saturday we went to look at the house again, as it's funny how much you forget in a few weeks. Its only about 2 week until we move, and I actually can't wait. Everyday we spend in this flat I just find more and more things that annoy me about it! But I guess when it comes to moving I will probably be sad. This was Theo's second home, and he's learnt and changed so much since being here! Mainly sitting, crawling, feeding himself and how to explore and get into EVERYTHING! I'm thinking it's going to be weird for him moving, as he knows his way around this flat really well and I guess he knows it's home. Maybe for the first week or so he might think that we are just visiting some place, but will be coming back to the flat, does this happen with babies, or do they just adapt really quickly? Will the new place feel like home? Or does it not matter to them, as long as he gets fed and put to bed?

Anyway, it was really nice going back and was bigger than we both remembered which is a good sign! We also went to the park which will be about 10 minutes walk away. I always really liked the area we live in because it's close to the Downs in Bristol and I will be sad about leaving them, but going to this park makes me feel really glad about the area we are moving too, because it's beautiful, and much more fun for a child. There's a great play area and a big pond, and just lots of space to run around. I'm so excited for when Theo grows up a little and taking regular trips there.



I then headed over to Frithas house for her baby shower. Theo wasn't really up for it, and was a sad baby for most of it and I felt bad for keeping him there, but it was worth it as it was a really nice afternoon. The food was yummy and there were some good games, such as guess the size of the baby bump and name the baby puree. Needless to say I wasn't very good at the latter as Theo hasn't really had much puree! She got some amazing presents which I'm very jealous of, I wish someone had thrown me a baby shower! oh well, there's always next time right?!

We returned home and Theo just slept on his daddy for most of the evening. Today has been mostly the same, with a dedicated lazy day. We watched Bridesmaids and I cooked a salmon en croute, which was yummy if I do say so myself!

Tonight will probably be spent nursing Theo and eating some pie. I hope everyone else had good weekend x

Needless to say I wasn't very good at the latter as Theo hasn't really had much puree! She got some amazing presents which I'm very jealous of, I wish someone had thrown me a baby shower! oh well, there's always next time right?!

We returned home and Theo just slept on his daddy for most of the evening. Today has been mostly the same, with a dedicated lazy day. We watched Bridesmaids and I cooked a salmon en croute, which was yummy if I do say so myself!

Tonight will probably be spent nursing Theo and eating some pie. I hope everyone else had good weekend x
