Fruit Gin DIY

Ok, so after my Christmas gifts post many of you wanted me to share some of my DIYs, I’m a bit nervous but here goes.


Holly Dog

Let me properly introduce you to Holly, our 3 year old Samoyed cross. 

For all her sweetness and butter wouldn’t melt looks she can be a holy terror. 

We adopted Holly when she was 5 months old, she came from an abusive home and had learnt to make herself very quiet and small so that she wasn’t noticed. She also has anxiety about certain loud noises and being left, we thought we could get her out of these so went about training her as we have out other dogs, eeerrrrr mistake!

It’s a Countrylife

And I wouldn’t have it any other way. I live in rural Scotland, although not that rural. If you’ve ever seen my Instagram feed (there’s a preview on the blog home page), it might give you the impression that i live a million miles from anywhere. 

Home makeover

When we moved into our house last summer, the only rooms I didn’t decorate were the spare room, or as it’s known in my family spare oom, and the office/gym/dog room.

Over the past couple of weeks I have been revamping both rooms. First was spare oom, wallpaper, paint and total furniture upcycle.
