Despite the fact we don’t own this little cottage that we live in, it very much feels like our own home. We’ve lived here for three years now and will soon be moving on, so it feels like the right time to try and remember the things I like about it.
It’s an old cottage – more than 500 years old in fact – and that means it has lots of “quirks” that provide a constant source of irritation. That said, those little quirks also make it 100% unique. It’s the place I brought my baby back home to and it’s the home where we’ve spent her first Christmases.
Maybe it’s because I’ve started reading more interior and home blogs, in readiness for when we buy our first place, or maybe it’s because I know we’ll be leaving soon, but I’ve made a conscious effort to prettify the place this Christmas.
