Hi ya! I went car shopping today ❤️ It felt normal......ish! I haven’t made any decisions yet, but was fun to have a test drive in something different. When I got back I finally sorted the gate to stop Mabel the pug from slinking through the bigger gates (see stories) but honestly sometimes I feel like I live in a lock 🚣♀️ we have so many gates and doors to keep dogs in or out, chickens in or out, I go through two just to get the bin out 😅 I was going to move the bunting today, but then got distracted taking photos 😝 Have a lovely evening x
💫 Today Jack could of been going back to school, I’m so glad I decided to keep him home 🍃 Before we know it we’ll be back to routine and the fast pace of life. Let’s enjoy being together a little longer 🌞🍃
Ah life in the country, it can be so lovely, and I love where I live, but we are sometimes without the amenities of the towns and cities.
For instance we don't have gas mains supply here. I buy cylinders and refill them as necessary.
Today I made up a little 'faux drawers', that just sits over the cylinders to hide them from view.
I dressed it up a bit with some summer bedding and some cute drawer knobs.
I used all scrap wood bits, n just painted it with outdoor emulsion.
So much easier on the eye now :) What do ye think?
67 years ago, on the 2nd of June, the Coronation of Queen Elizabeth II took place. Here pictured: our Sky Blue Sugar Bowl wearing its pottery crown 👑 and wooden sceptre in front of its royal subjects – the blueberries. 💙

Cucumber, avocado and feta - that’s all there is to this delicious salad.
Healthy, refreshing and easy to prepare - it doesn’t get much better than this.
The link for the recipe and video is in the profile.
For the salad:
2 avocados, peeled, pitted and chopped
1 English cucumber, partially peeled and chopped
1 cup of feta cheese, cubed or crumbled
½ cup of dill, leaves plucked or chopped
3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juice and zest, divided
salt and pepper to taste
Boston lettuce leaves
juice of half a lemon
salt and pepper to taste
fresh dill and lemon zest
Place cucumber, avocado, feta cheese and dill in a medium-sized bowl. Sprinkle with salt and pepper to taste and drizzle with olive oil plus half the quantity of lemon juice and lemon zest. Toss gently.
Place a few lettuce leaves onto a salad or luncheon plate. Add salad onto the leaves. Squeeze additional lemon juice onto the salad followed by more salt and pepper to taste. Garnish with dill and lemon zest. Serve immediately.
I would say good morning and happy June but I’m being mardy today. 4 holidays been cancelled, 30th birthday coming up and that’s not going to plan, not seen my family for months, don’t even know if I’m going to have a job to go back to and now there’s two massive holes in the living room ceiling. What a crap first half of the year! I know we are all in the same boat and I know it could be a lot worse but today I’m feeling really annoyed about it all 🤯 hope the other half of the year is a little better!! Have a good week guys ☺️ #thehatfield#persimmonhatfield#persimmon#newbuild#newhome#kitchen#kitchendiner#cranbrook#cranbrooksage#cottagevibes#loveourhome
I dream of better...and I’ll never stop doing that. One of my favorite verses is “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.” Jeremiah 29:11
The storms will never stop, but neither will the rainbows. To say this last week, past month, and current year has tested all that I know, my persistence, priorities, and ability to rise above is an understatement. Rather than focus on that, I’m going to spend today making things better, looking for the rainbows, and supporting those around me. This is not because I am ignoring the world around me, but because I know the plans He has for me are greater than I could ever dream. That is true for you too buddies. XOXO
Happy Sunday! Spent a wonderful morning down at the beach, home now drinking a delicious cup of tea and biccies! Can confirm it tastes and SMELLS soooo good! Am normally an Assam all they way but this cuddle in a cup will become a regular on the shopping list!

Hi everyone 😘 Waiting on the in laws and our nephew to arrive ❤️ we are having a socially distanced garden gathering and picking up @rockybottoms1 fish and chips at 5pm! ❤️ There will be wine and merrymaking ❤️ a perfect Sunday ❤️ Hope you all have a beautiful day 💖❤️🙌🏼 x
HAPPY SUNDAY ALL 🙌🏡 .
Today task befor work is hopefully create our external Lounge shutters and hopefully find the right paint colour that matches our front door🏡 I was going to add a window basket but I personally think it would look ott! But just the shutters alone would softly add character to the front ?? And blend in nicely with the development surroundings 🏡
I hope you all have a lovely day 🤎

Our herringbone flooring is to be fitted and kitchen to be fitted next week 😝 june completion needs to hurry 😜 As you can see from my storys we went to see the house today 🙌 I cant express in words how happy we are with our lil nest 🏡
We have very big plan for this home and we are going to completely flip it on its head 🤣 and going to add and create so much charm and pull in the COUNTRYSIDES 🐄🌳 granite work tops and my belfast sink will be fitted once we are in😁
We was amazed with how the garden is going to have high brick walls - we wasn't expecting that 🧱 it's going to be very private🌿🌳🌱
I could type and type away 🥳 .
WATCH THIS SPACE 🏡

As football is set to return most players will currently feel like they’re on the bench I imagine.............. oh who gives a shit about football, I certainly don’t, but look at my super cute bench I bought today for a tenner! A little bit of sanding, some waxing and ta da! It’s almost like it was made to fit in my porch ❤️ In other news one of my little pugs had a trip to the vet today for a rather sore eye ulcer. It was very odd parking my dog outside and the vet taking her away for her examination 😯 Thankfully it’s not as bad as it could’ve been, but we are back on drops every few hours and more importantly some pain relief for her and she already seems happier ❤️ happy pug = happy pug mum ❤️ x
„It was a peaceful day at their little cottage. Aziraphale read his favourite book and prepared the dinner, Crowley decorated the tree (Eden style! 🍎) and took care for their neighbor‘s dog. He loved that dog, even though he was a cat person.“
HAPPY HOLIDAYS ❤️🎄
I hope each one of you has a wonderful and peaceful time. I celebrate Christmas (in Germany we already celebrate on the 24th) and maybe It‘ll be a bit quieter here the next days. Christmas time is family time.
Thank you for all the support throughout the year ❤️ thank you for bringing me and @eden_cosplay together- we wouldn‘t have met without @goodomensprime
On a recent work trip to Salt Lake City, I photographed @rubiesoho_ of @westelmSLC’s colorful cottage – complete with a pink ceiling, parking garage reflector incorporated into a gallery wall and pet chickens in the backyard!🐓🏡 Talk about a home overflowing with character. Check out the full @westelm home tour on Front + Main 👋🏼 #mywestelm

Considering that social distancing is becoming the new norm, and #quarantinelife is now our every days, a touch of darling in the form of a creamer jug to go with your cuppa might just be what cheers you up today. It is the little touches, your routine, the beautiful everyday that keeps us all going. ⠀
What gets YOU out of bed every morning?
