Mr R and I had a rare day off together the other week. Years ago, this would have meant us heading to the pub and spending the afternoon in front of a fire, enjoying a wine or three and generally having a lovely time. These days, the most exciting thing we get up to onRead More
I’m a big fan of the monochrome Scandi style of interior design – clean lines, pared back, simplicity – it’s gorgeous.

Our small courtyard garden is a bit of a funny place, a place we never really used other than for pegging out washing and getting out to the car. A while ago, we made a pallet sofa (see the blog post with a How To here) which was great but in all honesty was tooRead More
Ever since we moved into this house, the bathroom has been on the list of things to redo. The layout isn’t bad, but the actual bath tub had seen better days and those awful turd brown tiles… The tub itself was enamelled steel and the enamel had chipped off in parts. The coating to theRead More
Now, if you’ve been following this blog or my Instagram account for longer than 5 minutes, you’ll know that I love a bargain.
