Sometimes you just can’t read that last page.....in the nursery rhyme book. Little Daphne - getting far too old to be our youngest child. .
After 12 years of pregnancy, & 8 children each about 1 1/2 years apart, and often 3 kids in diapers at a time - It’s a little strange having a 7 year old as the youngest. When my oldest daughter was 7, she had 5 younger siblings (yes, that is 6 kids 7 and under) I often find myself bored now with just 5 going through homeschool during the day - which goes to show all things in life are relative to your own perspective and experiences.
I will say - I appreciate how much easier it is to keep my home in order as they all get older - but I do miss them all being little - diapers and all.
#myhousethismonth#day20 Sofa So Good .... This @swooneditions sofa is very comfy, but this room is normally only used if we have guests 🤔 Currently the door is taped shut in a feeble attempt at keeping all the dust out 😖 One day all doors will be open and I can appreciate the space 🤞 Still a bit cold up here today, even more so as I’m watching the daughter having her ice skating lesson ❄️☃️x Have a great Tuesday x
The sunshine this afternoon is lovely. The light & warmth coming into the house so welcome, it finally feels like spring is on its way. Sharing a photo of my sofa for #myhousethismonth which I’m looking forward to flopping down on later to watch a couple more episodes of Manhunt:Unabomber which we’re really enjoying (thanks to @simply.weekend ‘s tv recommendations in her stories) #netflix#myhome#sofa#sofasogood#springisonitsway#cornerofmyhome
Day 20#myhousethismonth sofa..so it’s not a sofa but I made the mistake of taking a sofa shot a couple of days back and hate to repeat🙈 so here’s a chair and footstool set I upcycled with some fab animal print fabric...I do love a bit of revamping😍
If you need me, you’ll find me on the #sofa doing some blog work this afternoon whilst the girls make things out of paper and junk. I’m wrecked after a really intense Body Jam class at @davidlloyduk this morning, it was good but exhausting, definitely going to feel it tomorrow! So do you think it’s time to take my winter wreaths down yet, or have they got a bit longer? I’m amazed they’ve lasted so long, I think I made them in November! There is a shower of tiny pink petals to hoover up every few days but I can deal with that. This is my #myhousethismonth picture for #sofasogood and I have to say I find it hard peeling myself off our @dfs sofa at the end of the day, the footstool makes it extra comfy. #mydfs#howyouhome#pinkwall#nestandflourish#pocketofmyhome
