November was such a busy month for me with so much going on over the weekends and after work.  But December has been a little bit more chilled luckily which has meant that I’ve been fully embracing the festive period, and I spent 1st December getting our home ready for Christmas! I thought it was nice that 1st December fell on a Saturday this year as it meant we could spend the weekend together getting all Christmassy! Last year was the first Christmas in my own home and I had only just moved in, so I didn’t really have the…

We started the mini makeover by cleaning…

It was a little bit tougher…

So I got the keys to my flat in September 2017 (which already feels like forever ago) and today I came across the original estate agent photos of the place, and I was so surprised by how different it looks now! These are the photos that were on RightMove and I remember when I first saw it I thought it looked okay but perhaps little bit small and in need of a make over, but other than that seemed suitable. The flat was the first (and only!) viewing that I did and although the online photos didn’t do the place…
