About Me

I’m Christina, a girl with a passion for home and garden stuff!

As well as been obsessed with all things “housy” I am a mum to a girl called Willow and a boy called Roman (and a chocolate Labrador called Coco).  The “man of the house” is my hubby Tom who is not quite as obsessed with all things house related as me.  In fact he runs a mile at the mention of any DIY!

We moved into our house 5 years ago and that’s really when my house obsession began.  Our house is a grade II listed old rectory based in the village of Whitburn on the North East coast.

It’s been a labour of love since we bought it and we still have a long way to go.  But we’ve managed to say goodbye to the woodchip in about 70% of the house now.  Our favourite rooms we have renovated so far are the bathroom (it’s definitely got the WOW factor!), the living room and Willow’s bedroom.

I’ll be posting some pictures of the work we’ve done so far.  Feel free to send me any pictures of your own house renovations as I’d love to see them and share some in my blog.  And it might give me some more inspiration too!
