Change of address


As you guys know already, Liam and I brought our first house at the end of last year.  I’ve always enjoyed DIY, up-cycling and anything that allows me to be creative so I’m working my way through the house and garden, one baby step at a time, transforming our bricks and mortar into our treasure.

I started blogging in October 2014 on this site, Four Inch and Up (relating to the heel height of shoes!). I would write about my skin care regime, fashion and lifestyle. Since starting this new project, the things I found myself wanting to write about changed, which changed the whole theme of my blog – and created a lot of questions about the name. So this brings me to this new blog – named after the place Liam and I call home – Seven Acres.

Please come and visit me at the new site:






So after spending what feels like a million hours transferring my small collection of posts over to my new blog (yay!), I realised that I have never actually ‘introduced myself’. You’re all sat there reading my thoughts from your computer or smart phone screens, probably wondering – who the hell am I?

Let’s start with the basics. My name is Lydia (that’s me up there ⇑) and I live in a small village just outside of Exeter in the South West of England. I have an amazing boyfriend (thank you, Tinder) who has given my my very own fairy-tale romance.

By day I’m a medical Secretary for Older People’s Mental Health; by night I’m a wanna-be dancer, writer and chef. My guilty pleasures include Pole Fitness, Sims 4, pulled pork nachos and classic Disney movies. Anything with four legs and covered in fur is bound to get my immediate love and affection, anything more than four legs and I will run faster than Usain Bolt.

I’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for reading my blog. You are fabulous.

Love always, L ♥
