House to Home

  I guarantee that there are at least 10 things in your home right now that you could discard, that you don’t use, you don’t like or has been sat in a cupboard for so long you’d forgotten you had and you’ve not even missed it. Why are you hoarding these things? Are they making

Home Safe Home

Your home doesn’t have to be Fort Knox, and in an ideal world we would all be able to leave our doors and windows wide open whenever we feel like it without worrying about the consequences. Unfortunately this isn’t an ideal world and burglars are opportunistic, if they see an easy way in they’ll take

Thanks for the memories

I will have a simplistic and minimalist home. I believe that downsizing on ‘stuff’ is beneficial to settling the mind. It’s not a quick or simple process, in fact at times it can make you feel really guilty, as I have mentioned in a previous blog post. I am enjoying these sudden bursts of clear

One man’s trash is another man’s treasure.

        I love a good clear out. Or a proper Spring clean. It is one of my most favourite things to do and it feels amazing. The house looks tidier, you know where everything is, you have so much more space and you feel great! This is good for about three months

His room is done!

        We’re very slowly turning our house in to a home. When I say very slowly, I mean very slowly. We started decorating the troglodytes bedroom months ago. To be honest I severely underestimated the amount of effort and time that was needed to do this. I had planned to do it

  I keep promising myself that I will post to my blog in a more structured fashion, unfortunately life just gets in the way! It’s been a mixed bag of a weekend (well two weekends! I really need to get organised) so I’m going to squish everything in together. I’ve managed to get three of

Making progress.

We have been in our ‘new’ house for about a year now, well it will be a year on the 13th of November! We still have lots to do. We started with the laundry room (still not finished). We’ve had the new boiler put in, new windows and doors but we’ve not really made it

Windows Update (Hahaha)

(We still need to remove the extractor fan…) We have new windows! I’m sorry that the update is a few days late…the actual fitting of said windows took a couple of days longer than promised. I also started my new job on Monday and today we had to have our gerbil of 3 years put

More windows…a few rodents and a grumpy teen!

  Here is my first video installment for our home improvements. I’ve never filmed myself before and it’s quite nerve wracking, although I’m not entirely sure why. Anyway, if anyone is interested here it it 🙂 P.s. We have 5 rats. 2 boys and 3 girls and 2 gerbils. Names: Brown Rat, White Rat, Gwen,

Home Improvements: Room(s) with a view ;)

    We are very lucky to have such beautiful views from our house. However as you can see from the first picture the windows sort of ruin that view! So the next endeavour will be just that! The windows..all of them, well you may as well jump straight in with both feet. Obviously we
