House Update, January 2018

Thought I'd post some recent photos, taken today! Hot off the press. Note the absence of bathroom shots. We're still contemplating a wee facelift to Ugly Bathroom and Ugly Ensuite. Watch this space. In the meantime, enjoy the photos. We think we've done pretty well.

We still need to hang some more art and we need a rug for the front sitting room. And the cream sofas will be recovered and modernised this year.

Anyone still out there?

I know... I know, I am shameful at keeping this blog going. Life is busy!

OK, there's my excuse: Life Is Busy.


So, I don't know if 2018 will mean a resurgence of the blog or a final see you later. I am trying to claw back some fashion inspiration, having not given much of a damn for a couple of years. Lots has gone down in my life since late 2015 and it's taken me a while to pick up the pieces.

I've also gained weight and aged! I'm now officially middle-aged which isn't so bad except for the expanding mid-section. I'm working on that as I know I can do it if I set my mind to it.

As for fashion, well I spent several hours today trying on clothes and turfing out things that are too small, too old or OOD (out-of-demographic). OOD is my made-up catchphrase and I use it a lot now I am an older lady.

Inspired by Megan over at Mode and Methodology, I'm thinking of doing a Buy Diary, where I record what I bought and why. I'm certainly more mindful about shopping these days since we bought the big expensive villa. Watch this space...
