A Long Weekend

I’ve had a jam packed weekend to tell you about…

Friday I was babysitting this little guy

005 - Copy

who kindly helped Kelly put together another chest of draws for me

011 - Copy

(yes the draws won in my bedroom dilemma!)

Saturday I headed into London with my mum and aunt for a bit of shopping


It was lovely to do a bit of clothes and beauty shopping rather than the homewares and pretties I have been buying for the past few months

Sunday it was back to working on my flat. I have solved my wires issue for now by moving a set of draws from the bedroom which works wonderfully as it blends in the background


My green Lloyd Loom has gone back in the bedroom


I’m pleased to say my bedroom is starting to feel “right”






I even got handy with the hammer and hung my clock and a picture in the kitchen whilst rearranging the shelves

(Its me thats crooked not the shelves BTW!)

Then I made some comfort food, grabbed the duvet and curled up on the sofa to watch the Oscars


And today I’ve used my washing machine for the first time - successfully I’m pleased to add!
Back to work tomorrow so I’m off to bed with my Country Living magazine, cup of tea and a slice of cheesecake

Pin It Now!


  1. looking good :)
    I spy some lovely CK tins on the shelves...
    I am loving my Blackberry! Its still a bit of a novelty so I'm checking and playing constantly but I'm sure it will wear off...I've never had a 'posh' mobile before (I lose them..I'm being uber careful now!!!) and I am loving being able to read blogs and get my emails wherever whenever!!
    (ooh I sound like a right geek lol!!)
    Glad you had a great weekend

  2. Everythings looking really good and how cute is that little boy!?

    Just added the last of the red heart goodies for sale on my blog...please go take a look xx

  3. Did you say " a bit " of clothes shopping? I can see loads of bags.........

  4. Your home is looking lovely, you have some really gorgeous bits. I do have to say that your telephones are fab.
    Have fun, hope you enjoyed the oscars.

  5. Oh bless him!!!
    Little boys are soooo gorg!
    Mine seem to enjoy taking things apart more than putting them together I must say. Unless it costs a fortune and has LEGO written all over the box of course!
    I thought of you whilst I went off to sleep last night (oh er!), thinking how you were enjoying staying up to watch The Oscars! Now you're in your own place you can do what you want, how you want, when you want! Bliss! X

  6. I'm so loving the shelf unit in the kitchen! and how cute is the nephew!....glad to see you settling in hugs Tx
    ps i spy yellow bags!!!!

  7. How fantastic was Sandra Bullock's speech??

    How refreshing not to have someone gushing and sobbing the whole time -- she seems like someone you'd want to be friends with!

  8. You did a swell job decorating your bedroom! Everything is just coming together now!

  9. Glad you are settling in!!! Your flat is looking good!!!

  10. Glad that it is starting to feel like home! Your bedside reading looks intriguing...
