Today I had a raspberry magnum for breakfast and I fear I may now be on a road to morbid obesity. They are genuinely life changing.
Tomorrow it’s back to work which is deeply upsetting however we now have a carpeted house (some of it), some new house plants and obviously a new appreciation for the freezer department of the local Sainsbury’s - it’s been a successful stint off work!🍦 #myhousethismonth Day 22 - side table
Happy Easter everyone! Hope you’re all having a fab break. I am cheating my own schedule and jumping forward to our garden renovation for my house tour... with the weather being so great and the fact that many of you may now be inspired for a little garden tidy up, it feels right! So this is fact the LAST thing we did in the renovation and oh boy it has made a huge difference to how we spend our time at home. We had to remove 5 twisted elm trees from the centre of the patio (which were causing damp in our neighbours kitchen), replace and paint the garden fencing, remove the shed (we found a machete and some police tape 😳), and then we got builders to lay the slate and the Astro. For such a small space we didn’t want real grass because of the up keep and I have to say I love it - it’s like a carpet outside! So soft and great when our nephews come over and play. The pergola was something I always wanted and acts as a ‘zoning’ tool to break up the space and create a nice area for dining. Raised beds are great to work with (no bending down) and act as another perch to sit on when we have people over. Swipe for the before shot!
Everything paid for, but credits as follows:
Fence - painted in Urban Slate by Cuprinol
Pergola - just built by our builders (much cheaper than buying one)
Dining table and chairs - @ikeauk
Slate - @bandq_uk
Plants - local garden centre
