The art of patience and gratitude – We finally got our DFS Euphoria sofa
If you follow me on social media You will know that for the past few months my family and I have been living with an unwanted sofa. I know this sounds very ungrateful, seeing as that sofa was brand new, comfortable and perfectly functional. But it was the wrong choice, the wrong colour and the wrong material… and I make no apology for initially sulking and feeling completely cheated by DFS online.

Dinner al fresco for two
My little garden set has finally arrived and I couldn’t be happier with it. This 2-chair set from Ebay is part of the growing trend of bistro style rattan furniture that I keep seeing everywhere.

The last few months have been a total whirlwind filled with surprises, blessings but also new challenges. Not too long ago, we moved house again (!) and settled into a lovely new built property not too far from where we used to live. Things happened quite fast but if you know me well, you’ll know I’m always up for this type of challenge. We prayed for things to go smoothly, and I’m grateful they did. Not just the transition into the new house, but also the decorating process. Continue reading “7 Lessons learned while making our new house a home”
