I'm generally a fairly sociable being and I like cooking and entertaining. Mr D also loves having guests. Good job too. Between moving in last August and the end of the following March, we had 33 sets of visitors. That's approximately 1 set per week!
It will be great when we can move our bedroom across to the extension, thereby creating a guest room.
It's the summer holidays presently, so we have had several sets of visitors already with more to come this week. I'll be a bit busy so will blog again soon :)
Meanwhile let me leave you with some photos of my second eldest daughter's room. We decorated it ages ago, but it was at that point that I couldn't seem to upload photos, so here you go....

The wardrobe was free from my sister in law. I swapp d it for some chicken run panels

These are how it looks now. It's west facing so only really gets sun in the late afternoon/evenings. Fortunately, my daughter wanted white walls...

 And this is how it started. The walls were deep purple and deep pink! I honestly didn't think I would ever get it covered!!

And this is how the previous owners had it when we came to view the house. Quite a difference from before to after! 


  1. Big improvement. Wow, that's a lot of guests, you're a lot more sociable than we are.

  2. It looks beautiful. Is it always that tidy? X

  3. I wouldn't be able to cope with all those visitors - better not move to Cornwall after all!!
    I still get a shock at how PINK your house was. Surprised the estate agents didn't suggest they change it before putting it on the market

  4. I really likes your blog! You have shared the whole concept really well and very beautifully soulful read!
    Thanks for sharing

  5. That looks much softer and calmer. A coat of paint works wonders, doesn't it! Meg:)

  6. Just wondering how you are and whether the extension is progressing.
    It was lovely to catch up when there was a flurry of posts in August.
    I was so pleased that Jet was doing well too.
    Happy Christmas. Sue

  7. Very nice post really ! I apperciate your blog Thanks for sharing,keep sharing more blogs.


  8. The room looks so much more restful. The pink kind of reminded me of Pepto Bismal (I don't know if you have that in the UK).

    God bless.

  9. Usually, I never comment on blogs but your article is so convincing that I never stop myself to say something about it. You’re doing a great job Man. Best article I have ever read

    Keep it up!
