Today’s maternity leave project: try to give this mirror a new lease of life. I can’t even begin to explain the stressful day I had getting this mirror 3/4 years ago! I thought it was a tall mirror (always check the measurements 😂) and after driving 40 miles and reversing into a post I knew I couldn’t return home empty handed! I actually like the colour it is now but have bought a graphite vanity for our ensuite so hoping this will tone in with the decor. First coat done... probably incorrectly.. 🤷🏼♀️Nothing ventured nothing gained and all that!!!! .
I was over looking at the house again yesterday and is starting to take shape. The first coat of paint is on most of the rooms. This is the colour we have chosen for this our bedroom 😍 Pretty pleased with it. I think once we get all our bits and bobs into it, it will look nice and cosy ☺️ Why is it though colours in colour charts look so different when they are actually on the wall? p.s yes there is a grey theme in our house 🤷♀️😉😂 • • •
I have an evening of work ahead of me after a very exciting day. There is a bubble bath calling my name first though, and stories to be read to my girl. Then I will be working in my PJs, in front of the fire with the last bit of birthday cake at the ready. Leaving the 9-5 was a hard decision but the best thing I ever did 🔥
Another thing ticked of the never ending list with my new cushions 🙌🏻 Wasn’t sure what colour scheme to do in here but knew I wanted to add a bit of a colour pop as the sofa, kitchen and dining chairs are all the greys! Went for some different pinks and think they work well - now just need to find a rug for this area - proving a bit harder as don’t wanna go too pink. Any ideas welcome! Might share some options on stories soon.
Oh and of course the cushions don’t stay like this for very long cause...4 year old 🙄
Edit - check out stories for close ups.
Happy Monday Folks!
I’ve completely changed my weekly routine and now Monday is my free day 🤗
If anyone has any tips of getting toxic floor sealant smells away, please send them my way as we sealed the garage floor at the weekend and it is BAD (might give you a sneak later of how it’s coming along 😉).
Hope you’ve a good week planned folks... i’m making mine as easy as i can. Slow and steady eh?
It's happening // after a lot of encouragement from you lovely people last night, I am getting stuck into House Bootcamp this week! It's a big week for us here, Susanna turns 3 on Thursday and we have her party at the weekend so I'm going to try and blast through it a little quicker than the set plan (I'll share it on stories). Wish me luck, I'm going in 🤷♀️
Saturday's were made for brunching with friends, playing at home, napping and early evening adventures and that is exactly how we spent ours. •
My car didn't leave the driveway all day which is pretty much unheard of lately. Our friends and their kiddos joined us for brunch and I sneaked off for a lovely little afternoon nap thanks to that hunk of mine @foxandfins. This pregnancy leaves me so wiped out some days, I can't remember it being like this with Susanna after the first trimester! Maybe it's just life with a toddler rather than pregnancy, eh?! •
I hear there is rain on the way so I am feeling extra grateful for crisp autumn sunshine and how much we can explore right on our own doorstep. NI pulled out all the stops today didn't it? 🍁
Two lucky doggies! Alex has been busy all week welding these two a new home, ready to move in at the weekend 😊 If it was up to me they would be coming inside with us even though they would have the whole house wrecked in 2 minutes 😂 but they have always been outside and were built for the outdoors. I'm sure they will love having their own space together ❤ hope Mia doesn't miss her two friends too much 🙈
