pretty...
A few weeks ago I mentioned that there was something happening at the farm and I was cleaning and painting like a mad thing. Well, to Lloyd's delight and my terror we are being featured in "Life and Leisure" magazine. I love the magazine and looking at other people's houses, but the thought of having our own house and life in it scares me silly. However, it meant a lot to Lloyd, so with a bit of soft soap and bribery  gentle persuasion, I agreed to do it.
Honestly, I have found the whole thing terribly stressful, which is nothing to do with the people doing the article as they have been positively lovely. We spent a few hours last week with the lady who is writing the article and the last 2 days have been spent with the photographer. She let us see a lot of the photos she'd taken and she is amazing. The dogs are the true stars and the house does look pretty.
Now it's over we can trash the place again!! Oh, and I can relax for the first time on 2 weeks. ☺
I think it's going to be in the April magazine.

  10. Wow - sounds great, but I can imagine it would be more stressful than putting your house up for sale! Well done- you two do have a busy life don't you!? Hopefully you will show us some pics when the mag is out.
