New House

Hey all!

I’ve been a bit quiet on the blogging front for a few weeks and that has totally been down to the fact that I have finally got keys to my house!! Woohoo!!


Although it doesn’t need a lot of major work doing to it there have been lots of jobs to be done and I’ve spent every hour there possible to get it done. I’m exhausted!! My muscles have certainly taken a beating and it’s therefore no surprise that i have also not been to the gym in 2 weeks either – the horror.

I can’t wait to show you all some pictures especially the before and after pictures; the bedroom was almost black to start with!! 

I moved all of my clothes etc in yesterday and spent my first night there last night. It was so quiet I slept the whole night without waking up even though i have a cold so I was pleased that I don’t seem to have noisy neighbours even on a Saturday night.

Today is all about a second trip home to squeeze in as many bits as I can to my house as I still don’t have enough furniture to store everything yet – particularly my library of books that I’ve accumulated over the years. I’ve also got my slow cooker on and meat and fish marinading in the fridge ready for a cooking session this evening. I’m slowly but surely making the place my own as it seems the couple who lived there before me barely used the house. I don’t think the oven has ever been used before!


If you have any storage tips let me know, I’m also looking for interior design blogs for storage and furniture painting so if any one has any favourites please send them my way for me to browse! As you can see in the image above I have a lot of old furniture from my family and they’re going to look lovely when they’re all painted shabby chic style – I just need to get as many tips as possible first!

I should be getting my new broadband etc set up this week so please bear with me whilst I’m offline for another week or so – I have so many wonderful things to blog about and share with you!!
