Dream Loft Conversion

Ever since we moved into our beloved nest I have wanted to convert the attic, but now we have limited finances as we have been saving hard for the building work in our family room/kitchen it won't be happening any time soon but ideally as our little ones get bigger more space upstairs is definitely going to be what we need. At the moment we have two double bedrooms and a single bedroom (poor Tilly has the small room!)   it would be great to open up Tilly's room and have a big landing (something our house lacks at the moment) I would love to make this a small reading nook for a daybed as the view towards the playing fields is so lovely and it would be a nice place to chill out and also perfect to double up as a guest bed which would be wonderful to offer more space when we have friends/family to stop over.

52 Memories/34

We were blessed with lots of sunshine in our parts yesterday so we headed to Malvern to stretch our legs and take in what is the most breath taking scenery.

Our little ones really enjoyed it, Tilly kept saying 'I can't believe we are climbing a mountain!' And  ' I really like it here mummy' in fact there were lots of tears when we went back to the car!

52 Memories Week 33

I am just checking in with a photo for my 52 memories project, I have fallen behind again! The busyness of life at home with two little ones this summer hasn't left me with much time for my beloved blog so for now here is snap of us in sunny Devon last week!

We had a lovely few days the sun was shinning and the camping was fun until the rain came!! We have done lots of camping this year and our family mini break to Dorset was so lovely, there is so much to share and I so wish I had found the time to update my blog a bit more  but time has whizzed by! So towards the end of the school holidays I will share a long, rambling post all about our adventures this summer. 

Thanks so much for stopping by!

A room with a view

I grew up in the countryside but since my early twenties I have definitely become more of  a 'town girl' I love the fact that I can be on the high street within 10 minutes if I walk fast enough! (Not so good for my bank account though!) However we are blessed to have lots of open space very close by, huge playing fields, cycle paths, a nature reserve (and a really good pub) on our doorstep, so the best of both worlds really,  its so lovely to enjoy the open space, it's not as quiet as we would like but that's what comes with living in the town I guess, but I do feel lucky to have a lovely view from occasionally I will escape with a cup of tea and enjoy the breeze coming through from the sash windows and take in the lovely view and people watch of course!

I think its important to appreciate your surroundings, now we have decided to stay put there are lots of changes we want to make inside and the garden is a constant battle to try and make it more 'child friendly'  but  I do feel the location of our little nest is perfect for us.

Hope you're  having a lovely weekend, thanks so much for stopping by.

52 Memories Project 31/32

So, I had a little blog makeover, I hope my readers like it, I wanted something fresh but I am not sure about the three columns at the moment, but I am sure it will grow on me, would love to know if you like it, any thoughts or feedback would be wonderful.

For those of you off with  little ones how are your holidays going? We have had a great time so far, it's come with its stresses it usually does and I have so much to blog about to tell you what we have been up to but my spare time has been taken up with packing orders for my shop and trying to catch up on other admin like accounts, which hadn't been touched all year so I have been playing catch up this week as  both little ones are at holiday club. George is doing some football and Tilly is having a ball doing lots of craft activities, dancing, making magic wands that kind of thing! They are both enjoying themselves and if I am totally honest they needed a bit of a break from each other it was all getting a bit much! I have had a lot of  'Tilly did this......'  'Georgie not sharing, told on you' oh my I needed the head space too! Hopefully next week they will get on like a house on fire, here's hoping hey!

So for now I wanted to share a few photos for my 52 memories project, that my lovely sister sent over to me this week, taken during her time with us in the UK over at the Confetti Flower Fields  in Pershore.

 It was very beautiful but typical British summer the heavens opened and we didn't get to stay for too long, but Susie did snap a few cute ones of Tilly.

I am back to accounts and packing orders now, hope you have a lovely rest of the week fingers crossed we get some sunshine!

Open plan living

So with all the moving not moving malarkey that took place a few months ago we have been thinking a lot about making a few changes to our beloved nest, the wall in between our family room/kitchen has always bugged me as we seem to live in this space and it is where we hang out as a family, to have it all open plan would be a dream come true!

 So now the pennies are being saved to take out the wall and make it completely open and sort out our kitchen once and for all!! But it all costs heaps as we will need a whooping great big RSJ and we also need to take out a chimney breast, I know, I know the fireplace a beautiful feature but I need to move the sofa along that wall! (I will be sad to see it go). I also can't wait to re-sand our floor boards they are desperate, we had our sitting room done a little while back and its made such a difference.
