Home Magazine

When I was younger, I was known as quite a messy person, but with owning my own space came a newfound interest in keeping it neat and tidy. Still,  I'm sure it will come as quite a surprise to my old college housemates to hear that I have been writing regular features for the new Home Magazine on, and that most of those are suggestions about how to organise your home! Indeed, if you were to drop into my house unexpected even now, you would most likely not find it in pristine condition (especially when I'm in the middle of a big renovation project). But that's just it, isn't it? Our homes are always a work in progress. Our needs are constantly changing, and therefore we need to regularly look at how we manage the activity in our homes for maximum efficiency. 

My writing for so far has been featured in two different strands. The first is Home Highlights, in which I examine a range of decorating ideas for dealing with tricky spaces in the home. My most recent articles have been used as part of the Task Master series, which is more about the day-to-day management and organisation of the home.

I do hope you enjoy all those articles, especially if you have noticed that things have been a bit quieter than usual here on the blog. However, fear not - that just means that I'm focused more on the doing at the moment. And that in turn means that I'm going to have loads of material to share here on the blog once I'm through this current phase of work on the house. Some of the projects I'm working on are things I've never done before, so I'm learning so much and I promise I will be sharing all of that once the project is complete. So check back soon - I promise this will be worth the wait!
