Our Utility Room is straight off the kitchen and even though we use it every single day as access to our back garden, for washing clothes and sorting out Bungle when he’s come in from a muddy walk – it’s been looking a bit neglected recently. Last weekend I decided to give the room a fresh coat of paint and turn it from purely functional, to pretty damn snazzy!
The absolute worst thing about having Bungle (besides when he wipes his butt on my lovely, white bed sheets…), is having to leave him! I’d take him everywhere with me if I could. As much as I’d like to wheel him around in the trolley while I do my weekly food shop (…he’d love that!), it just isn’t going to happen, but do you know what? He might as well be there with me because I never stop thinking about him and worrying that he’s okay at home on his own and isn’t wrecking the place while I’m out.

I’ve kind of come to terms with the fact that I’ll never have a spotless, squeaky-clean house. Why? Well, A) Because I have a dog, and B) I just can’t be arsed. I mean, don’t get me wrong, I love a clean, fresh-smelling home – of course I do, who doesn’t? – but I’m no Hincher; I don’t enjoy cleaning and if I can get away with not doing something then, mate, I just won’t do it. After getting Bungle my house slowly went from palace to pig sty and it became very obvious that my cleaning routine wasn’t working. So I decided I needed to switch things up and come up with a way to keep on top of the cleaning in a more manageable way, and since then things have been so much better!
Can you believe that it’ll be Christmas Eve this time next week!? Crazy! How many Christmas Parties have you been to so far? If you haven’t, then I’ll bet you’ve got one coming up this week. Or are you hosting one yourself? If so, then this post’s for you. Hosting at Christmas is one of my favourite things to do (I love planning and organising around Christmas more than any other time of year), but it can also be really stressful (in fact, I wrote a whole post about it here). So here’s my ten step guide to hosting a banging Christmas Party.
It’s no surprise that I seem to spend more on homeware and interiors in September than I do any other time of the year. It makes perfect sense; the dog days are done, the nights are drawing in and there’s a distinctly Autumnal chill in the air (I wore my winter coat for the first […]
