Hello to everyone who has stopped by to read my online journal. It is (so far) a little collection of jumbled childhood memories (mine), alongside a present day patchwork of collected recipe’s, stories, memories and musings of my life lived with my two daughters. You are welcome, come sit down. I apologise for the dog hair on your nice trousers.

    I have enjoyed reading everything! So lovely, Corinne. Do you live in Wales? Your photography is wonderful. I love the way you decorate your home and your children’s clothing. So very sweet.

      Dear Beth – thank you so much for reading everything and for taking the time to comment! I live in England but literally on the border with Wales (Wales is about a mike away!). I did grow up in Wales though and went to school there. It is a beautiful country. Have you ever been to Wales? X

        Hi Corinne,

        I have never been to Wales but think it is so beautiful. All that stone! Monty Don\’s Big Dreams Small Spaces on Netflix had an episode with two men from Wales creating a garden. I did go to school for a year at St. Martin\’s (before it combined with Central) in 1975-76, and have been back to visit England twice since then, in London and Devon, where an old school friend lived. I\’m into Liberty fabric, St. Jude\’s fabric and wallpaper, Wm. Morris, etc., etc. A real Anglophile. So……hopefully will get to Wales sometime soon! Thanks for a beautiful blog and Instagram. Beth

    Dear Beth
    We have so much in common – I love liberty prints and that lovely floral English aesthetic! And I can’t agree with you more about the stone in Wales – it is in my imagination all the time, the way the stone soaks up the rain, changing from grey to an almost petroleum blue.
    If you ever come this way again – you are always welcome as our guest here. I will take you in a tour of some beautiful Welsh spots xxx
