A Year back in Wales

Alright, it’s been a little bit more than a year since that frosty November morning that Sunny and I boxed up the car and drove away from London, but it’s been almost year since we moved into our house (those first couple of months crashing in my Mum and Dad’s dining room seem so far away!).  It’s been a year of DIY and decorating and settling, but we’re finally starting to feel at home.  I’m being a bit cheeky and only showing snaps of the “finished” bits.  The truth us, we’ve still got boxes in the spare room that I’ve been putting off tackling for months (ugh!), and we’re still looking for pictures for the walls, but right now it’s as close to finished as it gets and I love it!

As for Wales, what can I say?  Cardiff is such a different city to the one I left six years ago, it’s small but has a huge personality.  You can’t sniff at living somewhere that’s wedged perfectly between the sea and the mountains.

My spot! 🙂






We bought this wolf print from Illustrate at Cardiff’s Outdoor Market at Christmastime and fell so in love with it that we bought four more – a monkey, elephant, bear and stag – that are all in the same geometric style.  They’ve recently opened up a shop in Morgan Arcade in Cardiff so if you’re in that part of town, check them out 🙂


I love our bed so, so much!  We got it from the Tempur Outlet store in Bridgend and it’s like a massive marshmallow.  Hands down the comfiest bed I’ve ever slept in.  Honestly, it was almost worth catching the flu back in November just so I could spend a full week cosied up in it without anyone raising their eyebrows 😉
