Looking At The Bigger Picture In Your Home.

When I first moved into the house, all I was worried about was unpacking, and where everything was that I needed quite quickly. I viewed this house with my eyes closed tightly, I didn't want to see the interior or exterior, I just pictured us in a house, with a chimney, and a garden, a garden my son has always dreamed of.

It was only when I slowly started unpacking, box by box, one at a time that I started to think of the bigger picture. It was so near to Christmas, I had very little time to do anything, but I desperately needed my front room doing, there was no way, we could of had a happy Christmas with the way things were in that room particularly.

Now, after living here for nearly 11 months, I've started to think about more than the decorating, I've started to think about other home improvements and how they would not only benefit myself and Spud, but also gain extra value to our home.

We're very fortunate to have a huge back garden, and I'm not proud to admit that the back garden, along with the front garden are in dire need of a lot of work being done to them! Finding this infographic below (credit to UK Homebuyers) made me realise just how important gardens are!

A looked after garden does not only add value to your home, but it's also polite and respectful to the neighbours who do look after their gardens - like my neighbours! I think they're appreciate that I even cut my grass unlike a lot of other residents on the street!

I'm off to search for bargain plants, if they'll survive the colder months and how I even plant them, because I've never planted a plant or flower in my adult life!
