Our Humble Home


Front of the house... I meant to place this photo after the paragraphs below but I think the webpage is playing up that it won't let me do that. Grrr!!!

Hello again everyone! I hope you all are doing well!!! Sorry for not being able to post for a very long time. Things have been too hectic for me since half of last year and even until now, I've still got loads to catch up with. Thank you all for your patience and to those of you whom I've been able to chat to on Facebook who never got fed up of telling me that you'd always be here when I get back to blogging again... thanks ever so much sisters... very much appreciated :)

Gosh! How I missed blogging so much! I've missed checking your blogs guys, I hope things will settle down eventually at my end.

Anyway... as a come back post, I thought I'd share with you one of the massive changes that has happened on my end. Yes... after nearly 4 years of dating, my bf and myself eventually decided to buy our home together... quite exciting I know ;)

Below are the photos I've taken of our very own humble home (yes, Glitz & Glamour is now a proud home owner hahahahaha!) on the beginning of spring when it was sunny and a bit warm. I had to convince my bf to give me permission to post this. My bf is very very private and want to keep it that way if he can help it. Although he eventually permitted me I've been TOLD (Yes, told! Afterall he's my lord and master ;)) that I'm not allowed to state the location of the house not that it would matter to most of you :)

So there you go... please feel free to browse through my photos below :)



The front garden. That tree is now covered in lovely pink blossom. I'll try to take photo of it later today


When we moved into the house in the middle of winter, there was no signs of life at all but when spring came, we've started seeing the garden coming back to life.


Another flower that eventually came out. I don't know what it is though




Snowdrops... they look really pretty with flowers in bloom. They seemed to have disappeared into the middle of Spring




Back of the house




The garden


Sam checking the fruits and veg he planted with my bf on a raised bed they built themselves



The garden... We've decided not to do much this summer. We'll see what comes out of it first then plan a new lay out. We'll have a green house and tool shed too. It'll be a big project for next year I think.



Blackberry tree being trained on the fence



Sam and bf checking the growth of what they've planted weeks ago... Although we've already decided that it looks like I'm the one with the 'green thumb' in the house. I'll tell you more about it in my future post :)



The raised bed... They've planted garlic, spring onions, carrots, aubergines, lettuce, pak choi (or pechay), chillies, strawberries, sweet corn and tomatoes. Not all of them grew


Primrose... a lovely flower that came out on beginning of spring as well



I don't know what this flower is called either but it's pretty hahahhahaha!



A pair of pink gardening gloves my bf's mum gave me :)



Tomatoes we've transfered into bigger pots from smaller ones. They'll be ready to be planted outside soon.

So, that's out new home and we'll be having our house warming party soon... I'll keep you posted. Oh! Before I forget... let me tell you that this is a 4 bedroom house and yes, I have my own boudior!!! I'll tell you more about it in my next post.
Till next post guys!!! xxx
