A few updates from the house, garden, and furry ones…

We solved our kitchen storage dilemma with this lovely Lean Man console from And Then Design. I just love it – it’s perfect for the space, beautifully made, and I can finally fulfil my dream of having grains, pulses and sugar stored in twee vintage jars.

Of course, it stayed this pristinely tidy for approximately three days and is now covered with mail, pottery and other life miscellany. Minimalist I will never be.

My brilliant mum made us some new curtains for the living room from this fabric. They’re thermally lined so will be cosy come the winter. They match the Roddy & Ginger print perfectly!

Here’s the Clive Pearson pot I picked up in Clovelly – it matches my (similarly named but I think unrelated) Colin Pearson goblet very well.


The garden’s ticking along nicely, with the veg taking it in turns to give us tiny harvests – broccoli, broad beans, tomatoes and chillies.


Yoni is taking his first steps outside since his accident. Obviously I’m a wreck whenever he goes out of sight, but his leg has healed up marvellously and seeing how happy he is outdoors makes it feel OK about it.


Lila’s so happy whenever we’re outside with her!

    Your Lila is just like my old cat, Purdy – always making a mess in the garden of her beautiful black coat!

    Aww, Lila is such a cutie – she is exactly like my parents’ cat Caribou. She is never happier being an ‘independent’ outdoors cat than when someone is gardening nearby that she can pretend not to be associated with :).

    Your home is so lovely! I’m glad to hear Yoni is doing better, and it’s so lovely to see Lila happy, too. Beautiful cats!

      Thank you – he has a heart checkup next month but all good on the leg front!

    Really good to see Yoni out and about, hope Lila’s been sympathetic to him. Just bought your Wonder Cat print on Etsy for a friend’s birthday and hope a little of that goes towards Yoni’s vets bill, though it’s a drop in the ocean I know….

    I’m so sorry about Yoni’s condition… I went through similar thing last year with my cat Genie so I know how heartbreaking it is. Anyway, always look on the bright side of life, which is how happy Yoni & Lila are looking right now, and your house looks awesome. Chin up, here’s a virtual hug for you & Yoni! (I’m well aware that we are strangers so this offer of a hug may be a little weird but I couldn’t help it…)

    that’s one amazing console! I like your house and its furnishings. Got me all exciting about my new London abode and how shall I style it…
