{The Ordinary Moments 17} #17 ‘The Story of a photo in a house and how we decided to move’
I should probably put a disclaimer at the top of this post and say that actually what I am talking about this week is anything but normal. After eight years in our little home a couple of days ago we exchanged contracts on a new property, we are all set to move in a couple of weeks time. However...

A Copper and Grey Office Tour (Our Old House)
If you've been reading this blog for any length of time you will know that I absolutely LOVE an interior project. We moved into our relatively small three bedroom house almost eight years ago now and for the first few years we did nothing, bar gave everywhere a lick of paint and replaced the carpets. We just couldn't afford...

A Travel/Bird Themed Nursery Tour… (Our Old House)
When we were talking about the prospect of having a third baby one big thing that would have to change would be our working situation.

Although before it was our home, our little bubble, for some reason...

Our Living/Dining Room Makeover- Our New Extension Part One… (Our Old House)
On a very normal and average day at the start of October, Mr E and I did a very exciting thing. We signed a contract for work to begin on a new extension for the side of our house. This is something that we have talked about literally for years, but it is something that I quite honestly never believed...

Winter Cosiness… (Our Old House)
I don't know what it is about December, but whereas normally I like getting out and about with the girls, at this time of year I almost seem to hibernate and find being at home a real source of comfort. I am one of these people who usually can't stay in all day, I like to get out and about,...

Designing our Dream Kitchen with Wickes- Our Final Makeover (Our Old House)
When I read the email from Wickes a fair few months ago now, asking to work in partnership with us to design a dream kitchen for our growing family, I couldn't have been more excited and it was definitely one of those things that I had to keep pinching myself that was actually going to happen. Fast forward a...
