Month in review... January

Oopsie, think I've forgotten to do a monthly round up post past couple of months, but lets start 2014 as we mean to go on, and oooh let's mix it up a bit with some changes to these posts...
Exciting stuff...

It has happened, OMG, I'm officially famous, FAMOUS! My little loft flat was featured in this month's local Carlisle Living magazine.  Eeek, I was literally shaking when flicking through this for the first time, wee bit nervous about being photographed etc and 'promoting' myself, but I do feel terribly brave.
I have received my first crafty commissions! Scream! This is just a teeny preview, but I will be blogging much more about this soon...
Anyone else really in the mood for clearing out and moving things round in January? New year, new start etc. So during my 2 weeks off over Xmas, I painted my room from bright red to cream.  LOVE it, feels all new and light and bright, makes me so much happier.  I also treated myself to some bargaintastic Ebay drawers, £15 and already nicely shabby chic and battered, they fit right in.

Happy stuff...
« Lots of mountain biking, we been most weekends this month and I'm getting braver with the scary downhill bits, « Driving, I LOVE it, I'm excited about lessons and I crave driving through the week, whats happened to me?? Am I growing up or something? « Attempting to feed Corey actual food, mostly got it round his mouth, up his nose and down his front, but was lovely anyway. « Feeling busy and excited at work, we have fun things coming up, I'm a little more pressured than usual but it is really motivating me. « Little signs of Spring, little shoots popping up all over the place, and starting to think about Summer plans.
