Morning campers! Going to be moving some stuff around over the next few days (seems to be my new hobby these days) to accommodate a new (preloved) sofa that friends can't take to their new home. I think hubs would like to keep the sofa we already have so I need to do some juggling! The sofa needs to travel a few miles in a trailer to get here so while I'm hoping there will be some sunshine, we've agreed to settle for 'just not raining'. Our current sofa is leather which seems to repel all attempts to have throws and blankets and cushions. The new one is fabric (washable, 3 kids here!), lower at the back, squishy, squashy and looks like it wants throws, blankets and cushions. So, come on sunshine! Or, just don't rain.
Today was my last day at work, and full-time blogging and freelancing starts on Monday. I had a lovely send-off from my colleagues (I got a bit teary!) and I'm now relaxing on the sofa with a glass of wine, half excited and half terrified about having no guaranteed income from now on!
Summer is coming to an end and you still haven't found your perfect bikini? What about a light coral hand crocheted beauty by emerging designer Ulla Johnson? She is known for her use of natural fibers, beautiful finishing, as well as ease of fit and form.

It was one of those days that felt as though everything was conspiring against me leaving the house on time/looking human/sane. But I made it, finally, to meet up for coffee (coffee features heavily in my life, k?) with another #charlottemason mama who travelled a fair way (and some of it in the wrong direction, which made me feel better about my disastrous first attempt to leave the house. Yup, there was more than one attempt). And it was lovely, to chat with my fellow roomie-to-be 🙌 at the next gathering of #charlottemasonmothers . Counting down the weeks to making that journey!
I'm playing around with different clock settings on my @sony short-throw projector - I can't decide if I prefer this one or the numeric option (see a few posts back). It shows films and photos beautifully too - they're just much harder to photograph! #lifespaceux#sponsored

What's cute, little and goes with everything? That's right, a new beige purse by COS.
Detachable details and altered proportions
Hot summer nights and little precaution
Cozy nights in and crazy nights out
Let's go together out and about!
It often takes a coffee and catch up with a friend to help you realise you're not alone in this parenting three kids lark. Someone who is honest about the fighting, the chaos, the noise and how damned hard it is to just keep up. But who also knows you wouldn't have it any other way.
Wanna spice things up a bit and get a new sunglasses but don't want them in black? What about sunnies with nude frames? Equally as versatile and classy, yet a bit more bright and summery comparing to the regular black styles.

On the blog today - a look at beautiful Somerset hotel At The Chapel, which I was lucky enough to visit with @iescapehotels a couple of weeks ago. It's the perfect combination of old and new - a converted chapel with lots of contemporary minimalism and bags of period character #iescapehotels
