Five things I LOVE about living here...

1. The bright, airy rooms

dining room



No, they're not perfect - we desperately need more dining chairs, the kitchen counters need repairing, the conservatory is either freezing or roasting - but for a modern-ish house, the rooms are wonderful dimensions.

2. The transformation on a chilly evening

3. The one picture I have hung in the living room fairly glows in the fire- and candlelight.

4. The newly cleaned patio - I can now step outside without risking slipping 



5. The natural delights right here in our garden - look who visited today!

what is he doing??

Silently I begged him to look round...

Never a dull moment living here :)


  1. Lovely bright rooms!!!!! Which will be even nicer, as late Autumn and Winter close in. :-)

    Oh how delightfully cozy, that fire makes it all feel.

    I am so happy for you!!!!

    Autumn blessings,

    1. Thank you! I truly can't believe we actually live here... I keep pinching myself :) x

  2. I love bright airy rooms! Our current home has a lot of indirect light, which makes it hard for me in the winter. Luckily, my daughter's bedroom is always full of light so I spend much of the winter hiding out up there during the day to soak up the vitamin C! : )

    1. We have to seek the sun wherever we can find it, don't we, especially as the days shorten...

    1. Yes, it is a real joy to live here - how I hope it'll be much longer than just the 6-month lease!
