If you’d have asked me a few years ago what colour I’d paint my bedroom if I could choose any shade at all from the spectrum of the entire colour wheel, I would have picked…black. Yup.

Little over a year ago, Joe decided to shake up the bedrooms in our house. We had a big clear out, and re-arranged the furniture to make the spaces look as large as possible.

In my previous post, I talked about Joe being buff in the garden. I suppose it looks like I didn’t do much but take pictures of him. Well, you’d be wrong! This weekend I did lots of housewifey-type things. I baked…(These are Mars Bar melts. They were dynamite! I got the recipe from HERE if you want to make them too) …and then I cracked on with some
On Friday night, I made the conscious decision that I was going to have an unbelievably productive weekend. That night, Joe & I headed to B&Q to pick up some bits and bobs.
