I moved in with J in April 2014 and, because I lived in a rented flat at the time, I was able to move my stuff out over the course of a few weeks. He bought the house back in 2009 and it needed a lot of work doing to it to make it habitable.
We have a large untamed garden extending all the way round our house. There’s rubble, weeds, brambles and often frogs, slowworms, foxes and badgers as well. The project, quite simply, is too large for J and I to undertake alone, especially considering J has CFS, so can’t really do much in one go. So we thought we’d hire a landscaper.
I always feel that art can really change a house into a home and give it a personal touch. That being said, I’ve never really been in a position to buy art before (I don’t think ripping out posters from magazines really counts to be honest!).
