Blog love

I hope you’ve all had a lovely week – how wonderful was yesterday’s weather? I went for my first walk with Jules and Otto in a while and it was so strange that we were both in short sleeves walking over dry leaves and squinting in the low sun. It was really quite heavenly.

Jules came to bed at 3am last night after cracking a bug that he’s been tackling for weeks (he’s a web developer). I could feel so much of his stress melt away so I’m hoping we are going to be able to have a relaxing weekend that seems to have eluded us for a while. I am, however, going to have to miss my favourite girl’s hen-do tonight, which I am very sad about – also sad not to be drinking all the gin 😉

What have you got planned this weekend? If you need a bit of reading, inspiration or a project or two, I can point you in the right direction…

A Quiet Style

Emma (one of my favourite IG’ers – check out her images here) has started a brilliant new monthly column called My Favourite Flower. Each month she invites a guest to share their favourite flower and how they like to display it around their home. You must pop over to see the first instalment as it is a beauty and you’ll get so many ideas.

Will has launched his first photographic print collection and there are some stunners! It’s such a happy and vibrant collection, all taken by Will on his travels. Check it out and decide which is your favourite (I love Fisherman’s Pride).

Fall for DIY

This is a blog that I have only recently discovered and it’s a delight – how did I not know about it before?! I love this DIY macrame hanging pumpkin tutorial – a perfect project for this weekend.

Mad about the house

I do this weird thing of looking at houses on Rightmove just for fun. As it turns out, Kate does the same thing and finds the most amazing houses to show us all in her regular column, Househunter. So, drift off into fantasy land and decide which of Kate’s picks is your dream home…

Wit and Delight

There are Dahlias everywhere I look at the moment and one of my lovely readers, Louise, even emailed me a photograph of hers to cheer me up this week – so lovely! In case, you have been looking on longingly and wanting to grow your own, there is a great guide on Wit and Delight this week.

    I LOVE the househunter! I do that too- go on rightmove just to look at houses. I like to see what other people have done with their Victorian terraces.

      Maybe it’s not as weird as I thought it was then! Such a good idea to look for inspiration for Victorian terraces x

    Hope you are feeling much much better now. Take it easy.

    I have a friend who loves to look for houses on Right Move even though she has her own. I guess it’s a common hobby 😉

    Fall for DIY is one of my absolute faves too.

    Yep, I keep looking at places on Rightmove too – I still get notified of houses coming on the market despite having moved in January. Sometimes it’s for inspiration, sometimes nosiness, and sometimes it’s a “how can anyone actually live with that?!!!” So glad you liked the dahlias!

      Ha! Hope it doesn’t mean there’s any estate agent in us! The Dahlias were beautiful, thank you again 🙂
