    newborn essentials

    While we work towards finishing the kitchen our baby boy is working towards making his arrival, which means we too, need to work towards preparing for his arrival.

    Entry Coat Rack

    This space has been more of personal recovery diary than a renovation journal. It’s a bit to be expected, as there has been a lack of blog fodder lately due to various issues that have arisen. I’m finally mobile again after breaking my foot, although it will take me a while to get back to […]
