Scarlett (when you spot her) wanted to say a big hello to those of you who were sent over by our Ross @our1930sfixerupper and Elle @feathering_the_empty_nest I did my face talking stories, so that should keep them off my back for a couple of weeks 😂🤣🤷🏽‍♀️ • It's been a while since I've ropped Mat into pictures so his time had come 🤷🏽‍♀️😂🤣 "no higher Mat, you can't see her" • I hope everyone's weeks are going well? We're out in Leeds tonight, seeing Joe Dolman. Not like casually I mean his gig (who I tagged for my TuneageTuesday - if you saw it) We had Joe over at ours in 25mph+ winds for Mats 30th 😂, as a surprise he gave out tickets to our family and friends who were at the party. We are ready and raring 🎶🎵😎✌🏽

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone's had a lovely weekend? I've had such a nice one, where loads of unplanned things popped up and I've got to see loads of family and friends! • Now for a night in with the fire on watching a film! I know how to live 😂 and also only feels right to introduce my new love, move over Scarlett for my armchair... she had a good run been my number 1 😂🤷🏽‍♀️I was super spoilt and got this for my birthday from Mat..! And here's its first picture which I took for our home tour over at @keepmoathomes they've got an ''inspiration page'' which features so many homes I love, so I was really flattered to be asked to feature. Even if I think we just made the cut for Scarlett, who they've used for most of the photos I sent 😂 but if you wanted to take a look around our home go have a look. Talking of homes though, has anyone seen home again? That film makes me want to pack up and move to LA 🤤 Wonder if we could get Scarlett a passport 🤔

I've been getting more and more messages about Scarlett...I know, not really surprising seen as she runs the show round here 🤷🏽‍♀️ A lot of people have been asking how we trained her to stop chewing...So if I painted a picture that she's well behaved, this is me putting the record straight 😂 Nothing and no one can stop her chewing. She chews what she wants, when she wants. From skirting, clothes, bags, shoes and she once chewed off some of my eyelashes when I fell asleep on the sofa. I hope that helps answer any queries 😂🤷🏽‍♀️😩 If anyone has any tips please send them my way 😂🙏🏽 • I hope everyone's had a lovely Wednesday. Scarlett and I have had a chilled one watching a walk to remember - what a film that is..! Now for the apprentice 🤷🏽‍♀️

That last room seemed to be a personal fav for many 😂 Why have a Monica cupboard when you can have an entire room hey 😩😂🤷🏽‍♀️ Also Mat didn't go unnoticed, always acts like he wants to be no part of my insta activity and he pretty much followed me round for the entire thing 😩😂 getyourownpage • I've tagged everything I can (especially that pom Pom bedding. Deserves it own page that thing 😩) For any of you who enjoy a good before and after I've added some pics when you slide across 👉🏽

I only set up this page to stop boring my poor mates with home pics and now I'm hooked 😩😂🤷🏽‍♀️ I couldn't decide which pic to use so I'm just posting them all. The second one sums up how Scarlett feels about staged photos 😩😂🐰or maybe she's just jumping for joy 🤔😂 thanks again 😘 • Oh and I missed off...I will do the house tour over on my stories tomorrow.

I think that's a successful party 🤷🏽‍♀️😂 Thanks to all our friends who came and made it such a good night.

I won't say I've been polishing the taps again, after tapgate, but just cleaned the bathroom 😂🚰 I'm sure after Mats party Saturday I can say goodbye to the white grout...so here's a final pic of it in all its glory 😂 I feel like this picture lacks pumpkins, but I don't know if vegetables in your bathroom is too far? Or is a pumpkin a fruit? 🤔 • On a more exciting note than me cleaning by bathroom, Hampton and Astley have given me a discount code for 50% off their 7 piece Egyptian cotton towel sets (originally £54.99) with a pick of 16 gorgeous colours. To get 50% off please quote “hoppy” on the checkout page. Code ends midnight on Thursday 2nd November. • Who doesn't need more towels 🤷🏽‍♀️ or maybe it's just Mat and I who lose towels like socks! thoughtoftheday towels hamptonandastley gifted (not in the talented way) and no Scarlett wasn't meant to be in this, she just decided to get involved and eat my props... classic Scarlett..! • bath bathtime relax mybathroom bathroom farrowandball marbletiles rolltopbath vanityunit bathroomdesign bathroomremodel luxurybathroom renovation traditionalbathroom rolltopbath woodpanelling projectbathroom floortiles

And annual leave has begun 💃🏽 I've got until next Wednesday off..! No holiday sadly, just to get ready for Mats garden party Saturday (yes a garden party in October) 😂 and then next week plans to celebrate his 30th! Hence my lengthy to do list on my stories. Unfortunately when people are over you can't just make them look at the tidy angles of the house, like my insta feed 😩😂🤔 • Also here are the stools I sanded and re-painted last night! So happy with them 🙌🏽💃🏽 oh and the new door knobs... they deserve a shoutout 😂

Well Scarlett and I have had such a nice weekend, with lots of friends coming over to keep us company whilst Mats away and living the dream in Cliff the camper van. And today, minus eagerly turning up for a carboot on the wrong day, it's turned out to be pretty productive 🙌🏽💃🏽I'm trying to get Mat 30 presents for his 30th so I've made a small dent in that task today (when I'm out of ideas he will probably end up with 20boxes of maltesers 🤷🏽‍♀️)...! And talking of been productive, I've finally put a plant in my gorgeous basket from @sunshine.and.shade in a Scarlett free zone, so it remains in one piece! • Sorry, lastly (I've not posted for a bit, I've got a lot to say 😂) but how nice is the stag head my sister got me (yes I'm one of those who opens birthday present early 😂🙈)!! I hope everyone's had a lovely weekend too? 😘 myfandbhome

Happy Tuesday everyone! Dr Foster finale night 🙌🏽 I can't wait for it, that and to sit down finally 🎻 • No rest for the wicked at the moment...October is always so busy, with my birthday, Mats, my mums, my little sisters and most importantly queen Scarlett's 🐰👑 But this year it's Mats 30th so I'm been planning and sorting a garden party for him. We finally moved the loo and sink out last month, so things are moving forward 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ Yes why aren't we just hiring somewhere you'll be thinking... Mat doesn't like a lot of fuss, so he's been referring to his party as a 'house warming' 18months after we moved in 🤔😂 Then aside from the house projects (and my busy full time job) my sisters also decided I'm her unpaid wedding planner 🤣😩😂 After/if you've read all that you're probably thinking... If you wrote smaller captions think how much more you could get done and it's a fair point 🤔

But we took that to the next step and literally were the wedding crashers yesterday 😂 Thank you for all the messages, we were all fine. But the front of my car looks how we feel today 😂 • Also....

Sorry, I had planned to not post another living room picture for a while, but, the living room is now FINISHED 🙌🏽💃🏽 So I thought I could get away with another 🤷🏽‍♀️ • I've added a before and one of where I did some little improvements to the room before we went for it 😂 👉🏽 After stripping (walls), I skimmed them (roughly with a kit from B&Q) then I painted in some paint from wilkinsons for £10 and used some left over gray paint for the fireplace surround and white tile paint (which I'd used in the spare room fireplaces) Thought I would share in case that was useful for anyone wanting to do the same.

I've learnt this weekend, there are things I can do quite well, like painting.

Mat said the only time it will be in the living room is when it's inside the log burner 😔😂 • I do need something for above the bed still. As usual just can't decide 😂🤔 Also for those of you who like a good before, I've added some of the before and during pics I had on my phone.

As soon as Mat gets home there's going to be two comments 1) What are those magazines doing on the footstool that's not practical and 2) you can't be trusted with coffee on the new footstool 😂🤷🏽‍♀️ • This really is the week that keeps on giving 🤗😂 we had this fireplace surround made and fit, then my £5 eucalyptus tree and our footstool arrived and I only ordered it on Monday! 🙌🏽 • We just won't talk about the absence of a mirror above the fireplace. I bought one ages ago and gave a real heartful justification to Mat, as to why I needed to buy it and how perfect it was for the living room. Well it turns out it's way too small 😂🤦🏽‍♀️

No this isn't a finished living room picture for those of you thinking... 'Bloody hell how long until it's done '😂🤷🏽‍♀️ but this is a newly painted fireplace. A few people (by that I mean maybe 2) have said they like seeing the progress pictures, so here's the painted fireplace 😂 The brilliant carpenter, Shaun, is making our fireplace surround (keep him sweet in case he reads this) no joking aside he's bloody👌🏽he did the flooring and these cabinets! Once that's done just a mirror to go up and we are done!! I mean we still need an armchair and pictures up etc. But I'm spent up this month, on the floor, so no armchair for me yet. Tragic story that isn't it 🎻😂 • I know a few people may be wondering where the painted fireplace came from. For those of you who have become well acquainted with Mat and his dislike for white. He started saying he wanted downpipe on the fireplace. I've had to reign him in, he's got well ahead of himself! I've done two walls downpipe in the house, don't push it ✋🏽 but the compromising partner I am, I've given him @farrowandball cornforth white.
