Since moving house, I have been overjoyed that we finally have a space to create a dining area. As much as I enjoy curling up on the sofa with a bite whilst watching Netflix, there have been so many clothing casualties from a stray baked bean or spoonful of spaghetti missing my mouth. I couldn’t wait to bid farewell to the dinner tray and create a candlelit area to tuck in and reflect on the day.
There are still a few finishing touches to add but I am so happy with this space and I am eager to show it off to friends at our housewarming party. What do you think?

I love American people they are always so animated even in their 9 to 5 roles they seem so cheery, trying to flog club tickets and getting shunned by passers-by. I loved dipping into conversations from street sellers “Excuse me sir, is this your girl? No?! Why the hell not! I see sexy, a whole lotta sex-ay” but my favourite character of all was our bus driver.
