Reflection, windows and awe


I can't believe I have been away for so long, but it was very much needed. Blogging has actually been a big part of my life for a long time and having some time out felt good and bad. Some where along the way I had begun feeling maybe I should endorse all the branded stuff that others do?, or set up a shop and try and make a job out of this social media malarkey but I am not the most confident and to be honest I wouldn't know where to start... the pressure just mounted and I lost my passion.

I started a couple of new projects, one of which was finally starting my training to become a counsellor, and I both needed it and intensly love it! There is a lot of personal reflection involved, which is throwing up some intense personal feelings and memories (which I am the queen of bottling up) but I can see myself changing , becoming more self aware and analytical (although as an anxious type this can sometimes be destructive, I am learning to challenge my inner demons by staring them in the face). I feel I may have finally at 38 found my direction.... like whoa!

Anyway I am back....... I am not sure I will stick around for long and I am not putting any pressure on myself to perform......in my absence however I have collected some beautiful pictures.

This little collection represent the awe of nature that can be seen from an armchair or whilst just pottering in the morning on a lazy Sunday morning.

Roses Farm: A dreamy British renovation


This beautiful cottage Roses Farm, is similar in style to my parents old cottage in Wales, and seeing these photos really makes me miss the old family home. I love this style of cottage with the exposed beams, inglenook fireplaces and flagstone flooring, there is something so cosy and inviting about them..... and not a sterile surface in sight :)

Snuggling up in front of a blazing fire, or sitting around the table in the dining room waiting for the aga to finish (slowly) cooking dinner. with a cuppa or glass of wine in hand..... bliss!



Literally my dream kitchen

Cabin Fever....


As the days get shorter and the nights draw in I find myself finally feeling comfortable in my skin again. I am not a big hot weather person nor am I a fan of the summers revealing clothing (on me) and how exposed it makes me feel. So when Autumn arrives along with the chunky cardigans, boots and scarves I feel finally at peace. But I also find myself craving the smell, taste and sight of the forest, and around this time of year my Pinterest account gets full of the most beautiful A-frame houses. So whilst sat curled up in a blanket (and sipping a fine Single malt), I thought I would share a selection with you guys.

Hope you are enjoying the season, what ever it may be in your part of the world xx
