I had a bit of a mini-meltdown last week. I hardly blogged (sorry peeps), I hardly cleaned (and…?), my ironing pile dwarfed and scared me (so I hid it in the spare room).
If it hadn’t been for the showers at Swim Club I doubt I would have bathed my children – I was pooped!
Although finding areas not strewn with Playmobil and dog hair was a challenge but it’s amazing what a quick once over with a wet-wipe can achieve!
My bed… I like to read in it, sleep in it, cuddle in it, drink tea in it, dunk biscuits in my tea in it, paint my nails in it and do other grown up stuff in it, ahem…
I love my second-hand headboard which I paid €30 for, I love my Zara Home bedding and I love the ‘two single duvet thang’.
Most of all I love that Axel’s little toddler bed is right next to me. I can reach over and touch him as he sleeps or pull him into my bed for snuggles, bliss.
A small, but perfectly formed selection of my cookery books. I couldn’t fit them all in, I’ve over one hundred to date… moving on.
Our dining table is without doubt the centre of our home.
It’s where we eat, laugh, get drunk, argue, cry, shout, craft, climb and make a mess. And that’s just during homework time!
I adore this little corner of my kitchen… it makes me smile.
I like my second-hand flower pot and lamp, and I luuuuurve my little collection of turquoise glass.
Here are some of my tablecloths, they bring me such joy I’m almost embarrassed to admit how much.
I also love this cupboard as it’s organised and generally the rest of my house is a bit of a shit-hole, so I guess the attraction here is two-fold.
This is our arts & crafts cupboard, I’m featuring it purely to show off – look how neat it is!
I love looking in here, it’s a colourful treasure trove full of excitement, imagination and glitter just waiting to be unleashed all over the table, floor and pets.
I love, love, love my kitchen and particularly this little corner.
I spend more time in this room than anywhere in my house. It’s my refuge, it makes me happy, it calms me, it excites me.
It’s where I make Nutella sandwiches and pink milk, calm screaming children, talk on the phone, drink wine, laugh, gossip and lose myself in the solace of stirring.
Oh, did I already say I love my bed?
And the place I hate the most… the cupboard under the stairs, it scares me, mice like it
