Sunday Independent feature – Bank Holiday DIYs

A few weeks ago Nathalie and I chatted [electronically] about her upcoming DIY feature for the Sunday Independent and she asked me a few questions ahead of the May Bank Holiday [in Ireland, sorry Canada]. I always get excited when I see an email from Nathalie [she’s a stunning photographer and has such a way with writing; I can practically hear her talking] so I was more than happy to answer her questions.

I shared with Nathalie my thoughts on DIYs and small projects that can be done over a weekend, important things to keep in mind when planning a weekend of DIY and what my DIY essentials would be [all of which I packed in my suitcase when we emigrated].

If you can’t get your hands on a physical copy of the Sunday Indo this weekend, you can check out the digital copy of it all here!

Thank you again Nathalie for the opportunity [one of many over the years] and for asking me to be part of your feature. Feelings.

‘How to use Instagram’ – Sunday Independent feature

If you turned to page 5 of yesterday’s Sunday Independent Property Suppliement paper, you would have found Cora’s cheeky little face alongside a lovely piece by Nathalie about Instagram parents who went against typical design trends when it came to designing their little ones nurseries, and who found Instagram and Pinterest places of inspiration. 

It’s a really sweet piece and I’m so glad and count myself very lucky to have been included in it. Or should I say, that Cora’s been included! Because let’s face it, she steals the show these days [not complaining]. 
I really miss Cora’s room these days and I find myself saying to myself “Oh I’ll paint Cora’s room a nice muted grey … No wait, I can’t do that AGAIN“, but we’ll see. It was such a lovely combination of colours and was such a calm room for her, I might recreate it a bit in her new Ottawegan bedroom. Thank you again Nathalie, and thank you Yolene for nabbing a copy of our feature and photographing it for me 🐃😜
