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.

Hey everyone… We have a lot to catch up on! So much has happened over the past week, so here I am to dish up the details.
Liam and I became home owners last Thursday 22nd December after a long and stressful 5 months – the same day that Liam got confirmation that he got his promotion (yay!). We were never given an exchange or completion date by our Solicitor so it came as a bit of a shock when I had the phone call to say we could pick up our keys. Owning my own home has always been at the top of my bucket list and was also my Mum and Dad’s dream, as well as my own. It breaks my heart that my Dad is no longer with us to see me tick off this box, but I’m sure he would be proud. Needless to say, I spent most of the day crying with joy.
Christmas has come and gone if a bit of a flash. As I was franticlly saving for the house and all the bills that come with buying a house, I made most of my Christmas presents this year – so lots of scented cancels, bars of soap, Christmas tree decorations, fridge magnets , etc and a painting of my family’s Jack-Russell cross terrier, Tilly! I made a Cranberry and Key Lime Pie and Nutella Christmas Tree pastry to take to my family’s house for Christmas and spent the whole weekend ramming food into my face (standared).
Everything inbetween has been house, house, house!
We are having a lazy day today where I will be reflecting over 2016 deciding what my resolutions will be for 2017 (better late than never, right?).
Happy New Year to all you lovely lot.
Love always, L x
