Back at last!!

Sorry I haven't been on here since beginning of May (other than to read all of your lovely blogs)!!  So this is going to be a bitty blog to update you. 

So what have I been up to??  Well, lots of working and studying before halfterm and then............................  Last weekend we went to Hertfordshire for the day to visit the inlaws, Monday - Eastbourne for the day, Tuesday - new carpet fitted in the morning and cinema in the afternoon (boys-Pirates of the Caribbean/girls-Wimpy Kid 2), Wednesday - London doing touristy things, Thursday-children went to their friends houses for the day, Friday-out for a meal with my parents for my mum's birthday, Yesterday-Canterbury, Today.........................resting!!!! Phew!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Also last weekend I went to a boot sale, but only made a couple of purchases.........
A china mosaic photo frame - now in my dining area (another one to find a picture for!)
I bought this noticeboard for our family room, but think that it looks really good in the kitchen.  I also bought a large Laura Ashley cup with spots and flowers - to put a plant in, but forgot to photograph it.

So now for some updated hallway pictures..........
Our new carpet - so nice and soft! And our newly painted white walls (over the wallpaper)

Below - the new understairs cupboard all nice and painted

I had a stand with a desk top that sat on top of it, but it was too deep for the hall.  So I found some wood in the garage and got my dad to make a new narrow top for the stand and voila!!  Not sure if these are the bits & pieces that are going to stay on there.
Need some lavendar for my trough now, as well as some piccies for the walls and other bits. I got a mirror today though..............
I had seen this yesterday in TKMaxx, didn't get it and then regretted it!  Made sure I got there before it opened this morning so that I was first through the door and luckily they still had it!

I will show you some better pictures once it has all been put together properly!

Back to work/school tomorrow - oh well!


  1. I wondered where you had been, good to see you back. Some really great buys especially the mirror. The notice board is great I have several around the house myselfxx

  2. Oooo I love the heart pin board and the mirror! Lovely finds! I love TKMaxx at the moment but can't bring myself to spend the money! x

  3. I like your new carpet! You have given me ideas for mine which is also due a change! :) Cx

  4. Love that frame! Scarlett x

  5. Very deeply gorgeous heart shaped noticeboard! What a lucky find. No wonder you've not been blogging, you sound soooo busy!

  6. Shame you didn't make it to the airshow at the weekend.

    We didn't see nearly as much flying over - then again I'm not too sure there was much to see.
