Morning, happy Saturday 😘

Day 23 of #myhouseinseptember is 'you must try this' and I know I've banged on about this before but this homemade granola is so easy to make and tastes so much better than shop bought. Great with yoghurt and homemade fruit compote, using up fruits from the garden. It's a BBC good food recipe for 'good for you granola'. Worth a try!
Have a wonderful weekend 🤗

Morning! Happy Thursday 🤗

Day 21 of #myhouseinseptember is work in progress. I always have a craft project on the go, and in a way don't like the idea of it being finished and will happily spend 20 mins or so just doing a few rows of cross stitch. It couldn't be more different to my job where daily deadlines are commonplace and I'm often juggling competing priorities. I find it a great way to relax. Hope you all have a wonderful day!

Day 20 of #myhouseinseptember is sparkle and I've opted for our door handles. The facetted crystal handles when they catch the light provide a lovely reflection. Hope you all have a sparklingly bright day!! #reflections #crystaldoorhandles #facettedhandles #raysoflight #oakdoor #happywednesday

Morning! Happy Tuesday 🤗

Day 19 of #myhouseinseptember is 'I'm proud of this' and has to be our garden.
The basis was most definitely there but over time had become overgrown. I've thoroughly enjoyed learning about the plants in the garden, how best to care for them and once thinned out picking complimentary planting to bring colour throughout the seasons. It brings us so much satisfaction and pleasure, even although it is a lot of hard work. 🏡🌿🌱🏵️️ Have a wonderful day 🤗

Morning, happy Monday 🤗

Cannot believe how quickly the weekend passed and it's Monday again. 😴 Early start for me and heading back to Glasgow for a few days with work.
As I work out of a few offices, for day 18 of #myhouseinseptember , which is 'workspace' , I've opted for a desk at home rather than work.
Hope you all have a wonderful day and a great week ahead!

Morning, happy Sunday 🤗

Just love this time of year, it's a misty morning with us, typically atmospheric autumn, with cones on the trees catching the eye, or flashes of reds and golds of the Acers.
I've struggled a bit with today's theme for #myhouseinseptember which is what was I thinking, and thankfully the 80s fashion, dodgy fringe and dungashorts (still shiver at the thought of that fashion faux pa!) are not accessable photos to post. Also my face is a bit of a give away to what I'm thinking, can be a bit of a daily hazard, as my eye rolling, furrowed brow or sarcastic grin get me into trouble!! 😲

So I'll let nature sum up my thoughts for the day, calming, colourful and abundant. I've family coming for lunch today and with yesterday spent prepping I'm hoping that's how my day will go, with not an eye roll in sight.

Have a wonderful day all!

Morning, happy Saturday 😘

Day 16 of #myhouseinseptember is favourite corner and I'm struggling to pick just one corner so I've opted for what I can see right now, my bedside table.
Mr B off downstairs to get us coffees, Saturday vibes!
Have a wonderful weekend all! 🤗

Day 15 of #myhouseinseptember is video and this may be a little bit predicable this morning but it's #widn and I'm going to enjoy it. Hope you all have a wonderful day, we are almost at the weekend 🤗☕️☕️ #coffeisinorder #morningcoffee #butfirstcoffee #nespresso #smellthecoffee #mytime #happyfriday #friyay

Morning, happy Thursday 🤗

Day 14 of #myhouseinseptember is insta v's reality and whilst I am thankfully through our renovations, I know many of you lovely lot are still in the reality of renovating you beautiful homes. As someone who has come out the other side hopefully this look back gives you a boost to keep going, stay sane and keep a sense of humour, which sadly I must admit I lost on a few occasions.
Here is my insta v's reality.. swipe....➡️
The first photo is our completed breakfast and family room, the second and third are mid way through ( yes we found a safe in the floor having taken up 2 layers of floor tiles, and if anyone is thinking what was in it, it was empty! - We've since taken it out) and finally our make shift kitchen in a bedroom. I foolishly thought we would only be in the makeshift kitchen a few weeks but we were there for 3 months in the end. The night we came home to that room flooded from the works to the bathroom next door, as we moved onto mains pressure was a real low point as our little corner of sanctuary was turned upside down!!
All that said, I can vouch that the constant layer of dust will come to an end, you will be able to walk about in your bare feet again, the many decisions to be made on everything will no longer be the focus of your evenings and the builders will leave, just hang in there - it will so be worth it! 🤗

Day 13 of #myhouseinseptember is bargain hunt and my best buys this summer have to be our home grown veggies. The warm spring seemed to create a perfect environment for growing and our tomotoes have been particularly prolific. I took this photo at the weekend having just picked a full bowl full of ripe ones, we still have so many coming. Definitely my bargain of the summer 🍅🍅🍅 #homegrownfood #greenhouse #tomatoes #mygarden #bargain #growyourown

Morning, happy Tuesday 😘

Day 12 of #myhouseinseptember is time and as I'm in Glasgow with work and a bit short on time I'm going with some actual 'thyme' from our garden which I have in abundance! The herbs are at one side of a raised bed with strawberries at the other and my thyme is doing so well it's merging with the strawberry plants. Bit of thinning out required in the next few weeks I think.

Hope you all have a wonderful day 🤗

Morning, happy Monday!
Day 11 of #myhouseinseptember is softly softly and I've mentioned before we have blankets to hand on the arms of most chairs, ready to pull over at a moments notice, to instantly feel cosy. This one is in the snug, sporting some tartan, to tie in with the plaid curtains and largely Scottish countryside theme.
Have a wonderful day, I'm heading to Scotland myself this morning for a couple of days with work. Hopefully it's not too cold and wet.

The theme today for #myhouseinseptember is makes me smile 😄 and thankfully I can think of lots of things that make me smile on a daily basis. Here are just a few that spring to mind...
Hearing of acts of kindness, dogs in the street, coffee shop knowing my order as soon as I enter, crisp blue skies, changing colours of autumn leaves, flowers still in bloom, sunsets, Mr B, Strictly is back and you lovely lot!
Have a wonderful day!

One of my favourite parts of autumn! Strictly is back !!!! Fire is on, have my cashmere diamontie pumps on (don't ask.. it's as close as I get to dancing shoes) and scoring paddles at the ready .... to much ?? Never! 💃🕺✨✨👑 #scd #strictlycomedancing #keepdancing #missyoubrucie

Morning Happy Saturday 😘

Day 9 of #myhouseinseptember is pattern and textile and I've opted for this corner of our ensuite bathroom. I love the pattern of the #firedearth floor tiles together with the openwork of the little side table for candles and body cremes, (handy for a little glass of bubbles too!) topped off with the textures of the bathmat and towels.
Hope you all have a wonderful day!
To the lovely Samantha @at_home_in_the_meadows, for the #widn I'm up and about early this morning as Mr B arrives back from a 2 week trip overseas with work, looking forward to having him home and heading out later for a spot of lunch.
Would @louloulouisey @cin_peppapig @piavibekegrace
like to play if you have time.

Happy Friday ! Yay!! 😄

It's day 8 of #myhouseinseptember which is 'all about me' but I'm not one to be in these little squares too much however in honour of today's theme here I am. I've tried to pick a snap that best describes me and think this throw back to last year sums me up quite well.
1. I'm on a city break, my favourite holiday option. Mr B an I were in Zurich for a long weekend.
2. We were there to see Coldplay, I'm a bit of a fan! Those who follow me will know we were lucky enough to see them this year in Gothenburg. I'm not a stalker, honest! 😉
3. I'm long lunching, with a bit of people watching thrown in, my favourite pastimes.
4.I'm in my staple wardrobe, a Breton top.
5. Oh yes, ... and I have a glass in my hand 😂 cheers!
Have a wonderful day all!

Thanks to the lovely @at_home_in_the_meadows for flagging a new hashie! #myspaceanddecor hosted by @the_indigo_house. Great way to find some decor inspiration! Looking forward to seeing some wonderful ideas. Dining room snap from me, with symmetrical placing of candles on the mantle.

Day 7 of #myhouseinseptember is storage and I've opted for my craft space with boxes filled with card making supplies, fabrics and embroidery threads. Love spending time in here, although when I do it doesn't look this tidy!!
Have a great day!

It's monochrome for day 6 of #myhouseinseptember and I've opted for my @cowshed hand soap and hand cream, I love the smell of these products and makes a nice treat in our guest bathroom.
