From the Homefront

So it seems I may be starting to emerge from the pits of despair.  I haven't been around an awful lot lately due to feeling, well, absolutely deathly dreadful, not to put to fine a point on it.  

Under careful monitoring I have been slowly reintroduced to medication which seems to have started to  take effect and I am at long last starting to feel human again.  I'm not yet fully back to the old me, but then who knows if that will ever happen again.  We change and learn and grow.  But I'm taking baby steps, as it were, which will do for now.

Among the 'normal' activities I have resumed of late have been putting on make up, dying my hair and buying clothes... and actually bothering to photograph myself wearing them.  All bargains of course, like this cardigan which was £2.50 from the charity shop.  I think its quite reminiscent of the 1940's in style and colour.  Not that you can see the colour in any depth in these rubbishy iphone pics taken in my kitchen after dark

Speaking of my kitchen, I have also gone into declutter overdrive which has meant a cull of nearly half of all my vintage crockery and knick knacks.  All boxed up and taken to the charity shop.   Here are my stripped down kitchen shelves

I do love a tidy kitchen, don't you?

Not much else going on really, other than major household renovations which have meant the mister and I sleeping on the sofabed for the last 4 nights.  It'll all be worth it in the end.  At least that's what I keep telling myself.



  1. Pleased to meet you.

    I LOVE your kitchen and your charity shop finds are wonderful.

    Hope you feel chipper again soon and do some more thrifty posts :D

    Love Tabi


  2. Well, yes, I DO love a tidy kitchen. I've been in that drugs-in-drugs-out phase myself. So happy you're feeling better.

  3. So lovely to hear from you again! Your cardigan is fab, & the scaled back kitchen looks wonderful. Xx

  4. LOvely to see you back and delighted to hear that things are quite so awful. Your 1940s-inspired cardi and pretty floral skirt look gorgeous and I adore everything in your tidy kitchen. x

  6. It's great to see you back Lucy, I've missed your posts, but I'm sorry to hear you've been feeling awful, hope things are much better for you now. You're looking lovely in your photos, and so is your kitchen, I do like a tidy kitchen but I don't have one sadly, I said that as if it's completely out of my hands didn't I. Also wanted to say thank you for your lovely comments on my post, I often feel nostalgic for 80s Liverpool too. xx

  7. It's lovely to hear that you're feeling a little bit better. Your cardigan definitely has a 40s vibe about it, I just love the colour x

  8. Your kitchen is so pretty! I always think that when I see your photos! Mine is a mess! WIsh it wasn't!
    Glad you a feeling a bit better and hope recovery continues upwards!x

    Your kitchen looks amazingly clean and tidy and stylish - nothing at all like mine! xxxxx
