HOW TO PAINT UPVC – BUDGET CONSERVATORY MAKEOVER

LIVING ROOM MAKEOVER

I think it goes without saying; the living room is my favourite room;  reflective in the number of times I post this on my Instagram feed. It was one room where Mat gave up the battle; leaving me to do what I wanted. Although that said, I let him pick the log burner...

OUR HOME

If you asked me what I would do in the future, out of all the things I may have said, writing a blog would certainly not be one. I am sure my English teacher would have discouraged me to do any public writing too….but here I am, commas and full stops everywhere. Like...

THE BATHROOM REMODEL

Being one of the first jobs on our list (excluding the unexpected re-wire) this was kind of what made me decide to set up the hoppy home and want to write a blog. A place not only to make a diary log of our ‘first home project’ but to share hints, tips and things I...
