Siblings – Hana Baby Guest Blog

I occasionally guest blog for Hana Baby about my experiences and feelings as a mum who practises gentle parenting. A slight side step from my main focus subject here these days, but rarely is anything in my life clearly one thing or the other. Many of my interior design decisions and influences are as a result of…

And so it begins…

And so it begins, my first dabble into the world of Builders, the start of 6 weeks (I’m a realist, I know I should add at least 2 weeks to that deadline) of mud and noise and dust and more decisions. I’m excited and nervous in equal measure…what if by the end of all this…

She Shed? Garden Room? Heaven.

  She Shed, Garden Room, Small Wooden Box? Call it what you like, but I will call it Heaven. It’s finished, well almost, nothing is ever truly finished in this house but I’m pretty damn close. I was determined to have it done and dusted before the garden becomes a giant muddy hole next week, I knew it…

What’s in a bag?

For the love of flowers.

When I was asked a few months ago could I do the flowers for a wedding my thought process went like this – ooooh lovely, exciting, slight panic, a bit more panicky then the weight of the responsibility and pressure really hit after I had said yes. I’ve dabbled in amateur floristry, I love flowers and the endless combinations you can create with…

Half term hang out.

It’s half term and the week has been long and short and lovely and irksome all in one. I thought I’d stop by quickly and let you know what we’ve been up to. I’m sorry this is just a quick half update but I’m feeling quite distracted from blogging at the moment and I’m just…
