I still haven’t worked out who I want to be or what I want to do when I grow up, so on this blog please join me while I try and work it out while keeping child-like creativity alive!  Find home and fashion inspiration; travel and days out; photography, writing and more. Have fun looking around 🙂

Living with builders

The progress so far, and how I’m coping.

It’s weird when the builders are here. I suppose it’s obvious that I can’t carry on as cimg0312normal, but there are little things that are disturbing my life as well as the dust and the constant banging. My morning routine has changed as I have to get dressed first, instead of making the packed lunches in my dressing gown in case they come early. I can’t do my workout videos in the living room in case one of them sees me. I can’t sit on the settee and watch telly in an extended lunch break in case they think I’m lazy. And despite their typical builder’s attire, I’ve found myself staying in the clothes I wear on the school run, instead of changing into my baggy saggy round-the-house clothes during the day! Worst of all, I can’t talk to myself like I normally do in case they think I’m crazy!

Review of the Rose and Crown restaurant in Dunton Green, Sevenoaks, Kent

There is a fundamental problem about going to visit my parents, and that is that the dog has to sleep in our bedroom. If he doesn’t he ends up scratching the door or waking everyone up whining, so instead I suffer with the noise he makes while he sleeps. Imagine something like a cross between an elephant and a sea-lion snoring whilst dreaming of mating, and you’ve almost got the level of noise our beloved Loki makes at night. (And day for that matter. Whenever he’s asleep basically.) So I admit, I was in somewhat of a tired daze the day we went to the Rose and Crown pub restaurant in Dunton Green to celebrate Dad’s birthday. However, I do remember the essentials well enough to write a little review….
