An Englishman's Home...
A couple of people have asked about what my house looks like inside. So, I thought I'd do a post to show you. My house is nothing special, I own it (although still paying the mortgage for a few more years). I have lived here for about 10 years and am now thinking of moving on.
So, here is my lounge. You will probably notice that there are no pictures on the wall. I have only recently finished decorating and am currently on the search for something suitable... ...if you have any suggestions, please feel free to let me know :)
Now on to the kitchen diner room. Again, looking rather sparse as I have just recently finished decorating that too (in fact, the whole kitchen was ripped out and a new one fitted. I love this one, as the washing maching, dishwasher and fridge-freezer are all hidden behind cupboard doors. It makes the whole place look much more tidy.
The tiles on the walls were quite expensive... typically the only ones I liked in the shop were also the most expensive. My dad was a hero and put them up for me. As they are stone they were a bugger to cut. He did a fantastic job.. Good ole' Dad!!
He also layed all of the wood flooring for me too!
The dining area is the other end of the room to the kitchen and is a great setting for a evening meal by candle light.
Then we venture upstairs and into my bedroom... this one does have pictures on the wall LOL!
Next is the guest bedroom. This has been piled under tonnes of junk for the past few years and has finally opened itself up for use again...lol! Now I just need to find some guests.... Mmmmmmm
So, finally onto the back garden (yard)... This was completely redesigned by my Dad and I two years ago, and is now slowly becoming established. Hopefull in a year or two it will look great.
...and here is my little cabin at the bottom of my garden. I spend many of my evenings here, with a glass of wine or port along with my laptop or a good book. I have a heater in there for the winter evenings.
Well, that's a whistle stop tour of where I am. Please feel free to give me your critique!
