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
