I don’t know about you but I don’t seem to be half as productive as social media would have us believe everyone else is. I can barely summon up the energy to put the clean laundry away, much less sort out and declutter my wardrobe, or clear up the piles of stuff that have migrated…

Now before we start: a word on the virus. I feel that you come here for escapism, for home decorating advice and chat, and to see things you might want for your own homes and to be inspired. I also feel that for some of you right now that will feel inappropriate and wrong. I’m…

Morning to you all and I hope you are all ok after the battering from Storm Dennis over the weekend. We discovered a leak in the top bathroom which is coming down into our bedroom below but I’m not sure I can blame Dennis for it in all honesty. Fence panels and roof tiles are…
