Moving out of my parents house for the first time was a big step for me but I’m proud of how well I’ve managed. If anything, life is much simpler! And quieter.. I love how peaceful my new home is despite it being in a more central location and my parents house was in a sleepy village. I’ve already shared with you my bedroom and kitchen room tours, so this is the dining room edition! I say dining room, it’s not…

So it’s been over a year since I moved into my own place after living at home for 26 years! I was never one of these people that was ‘ashamed’ about living at home even though I was in my twenties; it made sense for me.

It was probably the room that required the most work doing to it as when I moved in it was in need of a good freshen…

My friend is pregnant so it was kind of a mini baby shower for her as well as a nice little catch up! I had a little Easter tea party at my parents house for family a few years ago and I really enjoyed putting it all…

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…
