While sitting in the garden we suddenly had a realisation. We were in t-shirts and not chittering… Maybe Spring has actually sprung? Maybe it’s time to hang away the thick winter coats and crack out the lighter clothes and – dare we say it – put on our shorts? But while we had LOADS of…Read More
What are your home’s New Year Resolutions?
Is it just us or is your Facebook feed flooded with people showing disdain for “New Year, New Me” posts? We can’t help feel the same, but we also have a little bit of a kindred spirit with the posts as there’s nothing worse than dragging last year’s mess into 2015.

Finding a balance on Gumtree
We love a good old Gumtree find and on Wednesday night we bagged ourselves a bargain.

Going off the rails
Between us we have a rickety flat-pack IKEA wardrobe with a wobbly shelf which buries David in a clothes avalanche each time he opens the door sending him in to an interiors induced rage and a rather anorexic wooden wardrobe from a ’90s uni dorm which accommodates 2 shirts, a jacket and one tie –…Read More
Are we on acid?
The Summer months are around the corner and what better way to lighten up the home then with some neon brights.
