Hi there! It's been ages, hasn't it?! Lots has changed for me over the past few months. We're now parents to a lovely little boy called James, so I'm taking a year long maternity leave!! I don't seem to have any free time (surprise, surprise!) so I've decided that this is going to be my last post on this blog.
Thank you to everyone for all the support, comments, inspiration and interest over the years and I'll let you know if I start up a new blog at some point in the future. I'm still Pinterest-ing occassionally, so maybe we can stay in touch here. Good luck with all your creative endeavours, big love, over and out! x x x x

man called Jay to come and dig it up, re-turf it, take out some uncontrollable shrubs and prepare it
for the large shed-office that's going to be built down the end of it
this month. As you can see, as well as a potential veggie patch, we've got the newest, greenest grass! I've
even planted some flowers and herbs, and been out there weeding every now and
again. I don't know how long the enthusiasm will last, but for now, it's much fun.
