One Year of Being a Grown Up.


24.01.2016 - exactly one year since we waited patiently ALL DAY to receive the keys to our first house. In one sense it feels like yesterday we moved in as time has flew by so quickly, however in another way it feels like we've always lived here, especially looking back on all that we've achieved so far. 

So for this post I thought I'd add some photo's of my favourite memories from the first year living here and also my favourite parts of our decor. 



1. Spending the first night with no tv, no internet and no phone signal, sat on the floor in our onesies drinking wine and eating dominoes whilst trying to watch a DVD on a laptop! 

2. Our garden - hosting Toby's second home (the giant shed), some funky coloured fence panels and lots of random plants. 

3. M&S meal deal for our first Valentines Day in the house. 

4. Our pallet wine racks - just fab, see more here.

5. Painting stripes successfully on our bedroom wall. 

6. Painting all the furniture much to Toby's delight. 

7. Bolting two pipes and a scaffolding board onto the wall to get in on the 'industrial decor' trend. 

8. Finishing our little office room off with the perfect accessory - an iMac... still buzzing. 

9. Cooking our first Christmas dinner in our little kitchen. 

Hope you enjoyed a little review of our year!

      The garden is mainly down to Toby - I haven't cut the grass once yet!

  2. Happy one year in your home :) I remember when my husband and I moved into our PMQ (we live on a base) and for two weeks all we had was a single-sized air-mattress. Thankfully we are both small. It took so long to fill our place with furniture. We didn't have a stove for the first 5 months! Lived out of an electric wok! But I live for those memories :)
    Take care,

      I love those sort of memories too! We slept on a mattress on the floor for weeks until our bed was delivered - all part of the fun tho!

    1. All down to my other half and a spirit level for the stripes - if I had it my way, we would have just gone for it and they would have been all over the shop!!

      Thanks for the comment :)
