Why am i writing this blog?

Hi! I hope you like my little blog. I've always wanted to do one, but i've never been completely confident with the technological aspect of it! However, as it's a new year, i've decided to give it a go. I've found over the last few years that blogs have inspired my daily life more than anything else. I've found blogs that make me cry with laughter and some that have made me appreciate all i have in my life. I've discovered amazing artists and designers who i never would have heard of and i've probably spent way too much money on Etsy as a result!

I'm slowly but surely trying to do up my little house in Leeds. It was built in the late 1970s and the kitchen and the bathroom hadn't been touched since then. The walls and ceiling were all anaglypta, so i've been busy over the last few years just getting rid of all that. I'm hugely inspired by Scandinavian design and find this sits well in such a small home. I'm currently working on redesigning my bedroom.

My job is in horticulture, but this is a fairly recent career change. I am finding it very rewarding and i'm using my brain again to learn new skills after many years of languishing in an Arts organisation.

I've recently joined a reading group and i've also just started a yoga class. I have a passion for cinema and music. This summer my son and i and a group of friends are heading to Green Man Festival.

So this is my little blog about my home, my family, my garden, food, wine, cinema, books and music. Welcome and i really hope you like it!
