A little update...

Time has whisked by so fast that I simply cannot believe how long it has been since my last post. So many things have happened in that time and I am gradually coming back down to earth and settling back into some sort of routine. Having spent so much time on my computer during my final weeks of study I have enjoyed time away but have missed so much in blog world!!!! I have a LOT to catch up on and I can't wait to visit everyone again :-)

Some things that have been happening that have kept me busy...

I finished my design course (so am now officially qualified - hooray) which was a huge relief after a lot of hard work (especially in the final stages).
I can now look forward to a social life again!!!

We signed a contract with a builder to commence some renovations on our house (both inside and outside) - This is MOST exciting for me, as I have been planning these almost since we moved in!!!

My husband and I are expecting our first child, due in December which is both very exciting and scary at the same time!!! Now the sickness has subsided I can start enjoying life again. There are so many things to look forward to :-)

My sister and her husband are also expecting (due September) which is so amazing as both little ones will be born in the same year - My mum is beside herself!!!

Amongst many other things, did I mention that I have finally finished studying?  :-)

I hope you are all having a lovely week & I look forward to catching up on some inspirational reading.

  17. Hi Kelly! Just wanted to say what a wonderful blog site you have! I stumbled across it whilst I was looking for french furniture ideas! Congrats on newly graduating on your studies by the way. I am learning to become an interior designer and hope to one day become a consultant. I just love contemporary furniture at the moment, all things french and gorgeous! My current trend is silver furniture , I am like a magpie! I think this style goes delightfully well with decorative mirrors . I have recently found a gorgeous site which is very reasonably priced which I can definitely recommend Out There Interiors . Thanks Kelly! I will become an avid follower now! Helen, UK.
