What I've really been up to!!

Months ago I received an email asking me if I would consider my house being featured in a magazine. I LOVE house/style magazines and often wondered how you got to be featured – now I know. I emailed off some photos and blog links and thought nothing more of it but a few weeks ago I received an email.

An email to say that a well known, very popular magazine wanted to feature my little house in their November issue. I'm not allowed yet to say who it is and it won't now be November but Spring - so quite a while to wait before we see ourselves in actual print. How I have managed to keep this a secret for so long is a mystery in it's self.

But today was the day – the day of the photo shoot – I have spent the last week cleaning like a woman possessed!! For the first time, in a long time my house is gleaming, there is not a thing out of place and all those jobs that you put off for another day, have been done!!!

But it has been well worth it - the children have been given the day off from school and were beyond excited, although secretly waiting for the house to go back to normal!!

Thankfully they didn't follow through with their original idea to do a Christmas feature – I could have been putting up the tree and wrapping presents in June!!!!


Nicky and Holly did a fantastic job - arriving at 9.00am and not leaving until gone 5.00pm - we apparently had a lovely house and there were too many shots to choose from!!


So there you have it - something else on my 'One day I wish....' list, ticked off. It's been a fantastic day - fingers crossed they edit me out of every shot - I really do not like having my photo taken!!! Now I have to be super patient - something I'm not good at and wait until Spring to see our little house in print - all VERY exciting!

How fantastic! I know I couldn't keep such a secret!! What a dream come true. The only way our house would feature in a magazine is if they wanted 'homes that need serious help!' lol You have a beautiful home and I will look forward to buying the magaxine to take a peek. Sue x
