The New Home Blues And How To Get Past Them

When we first decide to move home, it’s exciting. It’s a chance for a fresh start and a blank canvas. What’s not to love about that? That excitement stays put during the house hunt. Possibilities are still endless, and you get the chance to nose around other people’s homes. But, once offers are finalised, and dates agreed, something strange often happens. That excitement which has been propelling you dies down, and you’re left feeling ...blue? The excitement of new possibilities is replaced with the crushing realisation of what you’re leaving behind. How can you leave the home you built and the friends you have? What were you even thinking?

Books, Shabby Chic, Lavender, Flags And Pennants

The chances are, you spend your days looking forward to returning home. It’s the place you run to after a hard day at work. When you get through that front door, you can breathe a sigh of relief.

3 Generations Of Christmas Eve Babies

Tommy at 3 weeks old 
I'm not writing this post because I feel in any way ungrateful for what I have. I know just how extremely lucky I am!! I'm writing it because I feel the need to share the irony and shear "how is that even possible" situation with you all.

For anyone who knows me well, it's been a bit of a joke with me that I didn't want a baby born in December. My main reasons were, it's always a busy month with Christmas celebrations and all that's involved with that. I also have 2 sisters with December birthdays and when I married, I found myself with a husband and father-in-law who both shared a birthday on the 24th December.

Since being with Keith I've tried to keep Christmas Eve dedicated to his birthday, not easy though when you take everything else into considerations. Anyway, I had no plans of adding a third generation to this list of Christmas Eve birthdays. So much so that I was planning in my head when we would start trying for a family. After we married I wasn't in a rush to start a family as I really wanted time with my new husband, just being the 2 of us.  A risky business when you're already 37. And, I definitely didn't want that December baby and especially not a Christmas Eve baby.

3 Reasons Your Floors Are More Important Than You Think



Firstly, let’s acknowledge a very simple truth: flooring isn’t that interesting.

Sure, it’s interesting enough when you’re in the process of choosing a new floor to be installed. It’s quite fun to look through the different swatches and compare the different finishes, envisioning the way the room is going to change as you do so. After that, however, flooring returns to its default state. Boring.
