I’m still here lurking at the beautiful interiors of so many but am not as giving with mine at the moment. Life has taken an unexpected turn so time has been spent focusing on family and friends. Any plans for Home of G are completely on the back burner for a while whilst memories are made with a loved one. *This delightful spot is in a pub in Hale, Cumbria. I wanted to take the skull home.

I’ve been AWOL and woefully behind on this ... I’ve been ill and have tonsillitis. The past two days have been the worst with it, and I still sound like Deidre Barlow with a 70 a day habit. So here’s my attempt to catch up ... DAY 23 | Fave mug - I don’t really have a favourite, they are either china teacups or novelty ones. As the boys are Star Wars mad this has a frequent airing so thought it was apt ⚫️ DAY 24 | Spring clean - it’s a loose link but that’s what the vase of tulips are for ... I did do a big clean a few days ago but you wouldn’t know it now 😩⚫️ DAY 25 | Pattern and texture - you can’t beat a geometric blanket! I’ve been under this since yesterday afternoon feeling pretty sorry for myself ⚫️ DAY 26 | Begins with C - it’s this homemade lemon cake. I made some cakes for my besties baby shower at the weekend and the boys wanted their own as they were not joining in with the party. I really want to eat it but can’t swallow without feeling like I’m swallowing 50 razor blades (I’m not dramatic in the slightest) ... I’m just going to have to sniff it and carry on with the ice lollies and soup 😢  Swipe for the cake porn 🍰🍰😋 #myhousethismonth #myhouse #myhome #cornerofmyhome #hygge #hyggehome #decor #decordetails #interiors #interiordetails #geometric #cake #tea #starwars #tulips #interiores #myhomestyle #homestyling

DAY 22 : Outside in | a different view as this is where I’ve been sat most of the day with the laptop doing course work ... I stood outside for this and got numb feet! The kids are out playing in the garden so it’s been pretty blissful and I even managed to sneak eat a Wispa bar without them noticing #parentingwin . I can’t believe the half term is nearly over - this week has flown #myhousethismonth #myhouse #myhome #myinteriorstyletoday

DAY 21 : Tray | Gold ✅ Hexagonal ✅ Mirror ✅ ... when I saw this I had to get it.

DAY 20 : Sofa | Here he is - we’ve had him for about 7/8 years and it’s served us well. It’s very comfortable, it fits all four of us on for film nights and it’s withstood all of the abuse from my mini humans (and there’s been lots). Alas it’s days are numbered. It doesn’t fit in with my colour scheme any more and well, it’s knackered. I’ve been waiting for the kids to become a little more civilised (I know, I know ... that’s never going to happen but I can daydream about it) before I part with my cash and invest in the next bum holder. #myhousethismonth #myhouse #myhome #sofaview #interiors #interiordetails #decor #decordetails #myinteriorstyletoday #hygge #myhyggehome #cushions #interior123 #interiores

DAY 19 : Colour ... yes or no? | I love colour but have always been a little scared of it. For years I have had a relatively bland decor just accenting with hits of colour. Kind of like my dress sense (mainly black, black and more black) but as I’m ageing I’m becoming more adventurous with it (my attire yesterday was leopard print, bright mustard and red lips - quite a bright mix for me). I injected some #stiffkeyblue in the living room before Christmas and I love the gold and foliage against it. #myhousethismonth #myhome #myhouse #cornerofmyhome #decordetails #decor #interiordetails

DAY 18 : Animal | The only animals I own are two boisterous boys and I don’t have any classy animal prints or anything to share (I am on the lookout for a skull for the wall tho). So here’s a Chinese dragon seen on our ramblings around Manchester today to see the New Years parade ... it’s a pretty shit pic angle but it was absolutely rammed with people!  #myhousethismonth #chinesedragon #manchester

DAY 17 : Bedside Table | Well my half term has started with a bout of Cystitis which sucks (stings) so I’m having a day of laundry, coursework and planning whilst I have the house to myself (well in between watching the winter games ... yay to Lizzie Yarnold and Laura Deas 🥇🥉!). Skies are blue and I’ve had streams of sunshine coming through the windows ... along with the snowdrops and crocuses spring is definitely a-knocking!!

Friday feels!

DAY 16 : Can’t live without - it’s got to the men in my life who are in these pictures. The hubby for his sins is a hardworking superstar and my boys are just simply my world. They drain every ounce of energy from me and I have far too many grey hairs because of them but they make me smile every day (a lot of those smiles through gritted teeth mind). Plus, let’s be honest they put up with my shit also 😁 Happy Chinese New Year and yay to the weekend ... only 2 and a half hours before it’s half term for us so I can’t wait to have some down time! #myhousethismonth #myhome #myhouse #hygge #myhyggehome #cornerofmyhome #interiors #interiordetails #decordetails #decor #interiors123 #interiorstyle

DAY 15 : Storage solution - I never seem to have enough storage and no matter what new solutions I bring into the home, they are filled to the brim and I scratch my head as to where on Earth all the shit comes from. The under stairs cupboard is more affectionately known as the cupboard of death (you know the one, you have to throw and close the door before something falls out and attacks you) and I have a fair few drawers of hell. Three of those drawers of hell are housed here in this sideboard and the cupboards  harbour all the DVDS. I bought this upcycled sideboard from Gumtree I think and for a bargain as I haggled even more money off for a hole in the back (became the output for wires so saved me a job) and some leg damage that we fixed. I do love it! #myhousethismonth #myinteriorstyletoday #storage #storagesolution #sideboard #myhome #myhouse #interiordetails #decordetails #interiors #upcycledfurniture #upcycle #cornerofmyhome

DAY 14 : Love - my hubby has a way with words; after 20 years he’s simply straight to the point #myhousethismonth #valentines #love #melons #orlakiely #orlakielywallpaper #lightbox #allyouneedislove
Had to be done ... Happy Pancake Day! Got to say lemon and sugar is my favourite. How do you eat yours? #pancakes #nutella #sugarandlemon
DAY 13 : Handmade - bunting in my littlest’s bedroom ... his choice of name means you can never buy anything personalised from off the shelf; it has to be made bespoke. I love that about his name. #myhousethismonth #myhome #myhouse #cornerofmyhouse #boysbedroom #hygge #interiors #decor #decordetails #starwars #vintagestarwarsprints #retro #deathstar #deathstarattack #lukeskywalker #lightsabre #darthvader #princessleia #bountyhunters #bobafett #bossk #ig88 #zuckass #4lom #xwingfighter #cp30 #chewbacca #r2d2 #hansolo #tiefighter

DAY 12 : Desk/Workstation - I favour using the laptop on the sofa for comfort, warmth and other distractions so this is where you will usually find my husband (plasterer by day, freelance graphic designer by night). Just a little nook in the playroom where the creative juices flow! How lovely was the snow this morning? I loved walking to work in it but how annoying that it’s black slush within an hour?! Only 4 more days until it’s my half term ... I’m not counting down , honestly. #myhousethismonth #myhome #myhouse #cornerofmyhome #workstation

DAY 11 : Window - had I done this earlier this may have been a nicer shot with the blinds open, or even another window showcasing the balls of ice scattered all over the garden. Instead I spent most of today’s daylight hours cleaning for my mini turds to traipse mud all over freshly mopped floors and throw Lego and other pieces of plastic shite all over the place. After waving the white flag on having a tidy house I then proceeded to feel every ounce of life drain out of me trying to do homework with the kids. You’d think working with 5/6 year olds I’d have the patience of a saint when it comes to sounding out/going through a sound mat for my own child to write his sentences. Well I haven’t ... not at all! Now I’ve got to sew flags to t-shirts for our around the world day tomorrow ... pass me the wine!!!!🍷 #myhousethismonth #myinteriorstyletoday #myhouse #myhome #myhyggehome #cornerofmyhome #interior #interiores #decor #decordetails #tulips #farrowandball

DAY 10 : TV display - not the prettiest but they rarely are. I’ve spent most of the day looking at this dealing with a hangover and tiredness and will probably spend the rest of the evening here too (lazy bint!). We made the decision to mount the TV on the wall due to my youngest being a pain in the arse. He has this amazing ability to injure himself regularly requiring numerous hospital visits in his short 4 years. I’m now fairly confident he will no longer pull the TV down onto himself so I want to change the display and have an alcove shelving/cupboard built in where the picture is hanging. Another thing for the wish list ... #myhousethismonth #myhome #myhouse #tvdisplay #cornerofmyhome

DAY 9 : Light it up - I’m still playing catch up. Yesterday was a bit of a whirlwind - my school had David Walliams visit and give a talk to the older kids. I didn’t get to meet him as I was left looking at the younger ones ... was gutted!!! Then it was to the local for wine and gin to make plans for my fast approaching trip. Turned out to be a pretty top Friday!! Anyhoo, this is the chandelier light fitting in the main bedroom. I think I got from BHS a couple of years ago and I still adore it. #myhousethismonth #myhome #myhouse #myhouseandhome #interior #interiores #interior4you #interiorlovers #interiors123 #interiordetails #decor #decordetails #decoracioninteriores #hyyge #myhyggehome #cornerofmyhome #chadelier #bhs
