Currently pinned down under the twins who have been taking it in turn to scream today but I did manage to nip to matalan this morning and pick up these 2 big velvet cushions for the living room...just trying to decide if they go!? And also what colour I want to paint the bureau as I think it's a bit pale and boring at the moment 🤔

I grew up in this house and as a child slid down this banister more times than I walked down the stairs and as much as I love the memories I hate this 70's style - not to mention the great big child size gap at the top - so yesterday we had them replaced, swipe across to see. Still some finishing off, filling and sanding to do and they need glossing but really pleased with how they've turned out.

It's Friday, Florence slept through the night for the last two nights and I've managed to clean downstairs this morning...Won't focus on the fact I've been waiting ages for my lunch to cook before I realised I hadn't put it in the oven 🙈

Can anyone recommend a warm white or off white paint for in here? I really want to change the colour as I find the blue too cold. Thinking of painting the end wall with the TV on in Farrow and Ball Railings to make the TV disappear a bit and the leather sofa stand out and then I really need to sort out curtains and blinds....#decoratingneverends

Oscar and Flo 💗 love having extra pairs of helping hands with the babies while the big ones are off school - it's even worth all the extra squabbling I have to put up with 🙈 
We had a great day today pumpkin hunting at Castle Ashby Gardens 🎃

Oldest and youngest 💗 Blossom, you and Florence hit the jackpot with big brothers 😍 
We've had a couple of weeks of poorly kids, back and forth to the doctors and A&E and now its the baby girls turn. They have horrible coughs and colds which are making them sick all the time (3 loads of washing a day 🙈) but they're still managing to smile 💗

We redecorated our playroom a few months ago as the boys weren't actually playing in there. It was really cramped with too many toys and a hard cold floor. We painted it a lighter warmer colour and added a super soft carpet. My husband built a huge walk in cupboard and we moved my prized yellow cupboard (of dreams) from Buddy's room in. 
We've hung string and pegs along the wall for the boys creations and artwork and added an Ikea sofabed ready for sleepovers. If you scroll across you can see inside the built in cupboard which holds so many toys (and makes me ridiculously happy) and the last picture is what it looked like before.

We gave Buddy's room a re-shuffle a few months ago when we moved hos much loved yellow cupboard down to the playroom but still have a few more bits to add before its completely finished (if any room ever is!) I love these prints on his shelves from the fabulous @buddyslittledaisy definitely worth checking out her work if you haven't already.
