Last week and this weekend were the worst! I got all over excited at the beginning of the week about changing my blog theme and not being the most patient of people decided to change it at 9pm one evening. Jules warned me to do a back-up of my blog content before I made any changes and so I installed a new back-up plug-in and annoyingly it wanted to run all night. So I went to bed and woke up to no blog. Nothing. Nada. We tried over the next 48 hours to retrieve it and eventually managed to wade through the corrupt files (still not sure exactly what happened) and reinstate the blog. However, as it turns out I have lost three years’ worth of images (from pretty much all my posts before the start of 2016). It was my birthday on Saturday and I had to cancel my party and we worked solidly throughout the weekend to try to piece together what is left but I have days and days of work left to do to upload the photos that are missing – luckily, I’ve always been quite good about filing my photos.
I’m trying to escape for a couple of hours from the hell that is technical issues and so I thought it would be nice to share a bit of nursery inspiration with you – I’m floating into my happy place and blocking out the last few days 😉 I have made a good job of clearing out our home office and selling the furniture and accessories from the room so we are ready to start painting and then choosing a few new pieces of furniture and finally bringing it all together. So, here is a taste of the look I’m going for: simple, light, calm colours, lots of natural wood and baskets against white, texture from textiles and a few vintage touches. I think it will be a room more for me to begin with whilst the baby is teeny tiny and then as she gets older we can add to it to make it more about her.
Lovely inspiration from these simple spaces…
Right, I should probably get back to re-instating three years of work that’s vanished into the ether – sob. If anyone is looking for a specific post drop me a line and I can put it to the top of the priority list to fix.
P.S. At least I finally have a new theme, although still lots to tweak – do you like it? (please, please, please say yes!)
