10 and 11 months!

Since I haven't blogged for so flipping long I forgot to post both Annie's ten and eleven month pictures. Fear not though as I still took them and here they are! Annie's personality is developing more and more. She is spirited and knows what she wants and is so funny! She makes me laugh everyday!!

At 10 and 11 months...

  • She now crawls everywhere and is so fast! She is also cruising around the furniture and can stand on her own for a few seconds. 
  • She attended her first wedding of the gorgeous Will and Toby in Menorca and was such a good girl. (Although you did wake up during the end of Uncle Will's speech!!) Oops! 
  • She has seven teeth!
  • She gained her Level 2 certificate in swimming and has progressed to Heigh ho (Level 2) in Monkey Music.
  • She is interested in everything and everyone!! 
  • Her favourite foods are cauliflower cheese, strawberries, blueberries and pesto pasta. 
  • She was christened. She didn't even cry when the vicar pouted the water on her head!


Annie we love you SO much. I cant believe you are almost one!

Back with Living room update!

Okay so I think that's the longest time I have ever been away from blogging so if there is anyone still reading (!) then apologies for that! I'm going to try and blog a little but more regularly from now on!!

Anyway the living room is almost finished (YAY!) and I have a little update for you with a couple of things we have bought recently.

These are the tiles that we are using for the fireplace and they are made in Spain from Alhambra home. I love them as they have a Spanish look but are still contemporary and they make such a statement in the room. The fireplace is the first thing you see when you walk in so we wanted it to have the wow factor.

 I wasn't sure whether we were going to have artwork or a mirror above the fireplace but due to the statement nature of the tiles we finally settled on a mirror. We went with this one from Nordic Home as it was simple but still had some interest with the beading. I was so pleased with how it looks.

And here's how they look together..I really like it! You can also see a sneak peak of the new built in cupboards and flooring. We're just waiting for the shutters and i'll show the final reveal soon.


What do you think?
