Home sweet home

I spent this weekend away In London. A 3am start on Saturday and only arrived home last night at 10pm. I am so grateful to have such wonderful friends in my university law society. I am also incredibly grateful to my wonderful boyfriend for taking on full parental responsibilities so often that I get to attend events like this. But there is nothing like home sweet home, after you’ve stayed in a cheap and cheerful hotel in London!

We are so lucky to live in such a beautiful home. When we were house hunting a year ago, this was the first home that we looked at. Although, we went and saw other houses, all four of us picked this as our favourite. And we saw some pretty spectacular Welsh houses, including a five bedroom mansion on a hill! This house was just in the perfect location and has such an amazing character. With our modern extension on the north side of the house and the cosy south side, with the original exposed beams and massive fire place. James and I each have our own offices and the boys have their individual rooms (which are huge!).

I am still working on making our home homelier. We have a huge problem with clutter and it’s something that we must work on daily. Not to mention letting go of things that we don’t use! I love the way the house is looking at the moment. The days are becoming shorter, and I light candles all the time. It’s slowly moving into fall and the cosiness of the house is so welcoming. I would be lying if I said that I didn’t want to light a fire already. I have come to my senses though and decided it is still way too soon.

On a more personal note I have decided after four years of law school that I am going to go for the bar. I have lots of work to do still, but I always assumed I wasn’t good enough. I am on par for a first class law degree and I have just made it to the final of an internal mooting competition. I don’t give myself enough credit! Now all I need to figure out is how to get the £18,000 for the next stage in my studies!
