|A cup of tea and the Telegraph is my fave way to start the day.|
I have to admit, we do have a pretty delightful, middle class, countryside existence. Allow me to illustrate this and how lovely it is to be home through the medium of pictures:
|We have a trusty old AGA (adorned with Cath Kidston tea towel, natch.)|
|We have SO MANY UTENSILS...|
|...and a pantry chock-full of ingredients.|
As a student who loves getting creative in the kitchen, particularly baking-wise, it's such a treat to have slightly more to work with than butter, sugar and flour. Although obviously I relished the challenge.
And even though they get under your feet while you're cooking, the kitchen would not be complete without our two black labs just being there (told you we're middle class). Meet Dog No. 1, Coco:
|She's veeeeery old. Bless.|
And crazy little Dog No. 2, Peppa:
|She's a complete and utter nutter.|
Walking the dogs round the village (and peering into people's cute houses, obvs) or the surrounding countryside with my mum is a little home routine that I love.
|Peppa loves it.|

I have such fond memories of picking apples, plums, damsons and blackberries from the orchard at the bottom of the garden with my siblings as summer turned to autumn - my mum would then make the most fantastic jams and crumbles with our pickings. At the moment though, our garden is full of the most beautiful roses:
|Pink roses are some of my favourite things EVER.|
My mum made a rather wise choice when she initially decorated my bedroom - I was too little to know what was going on - so I haven't ever had it re-decorated. I was always quite jealous of my school-friends who would show off their newly decorated, oh-so-grown-up bedrooms, while I was stuck with my floral-themed room. To be fair though, there's nothing wrong or unsuitable about my bedroom design, and now I find it rather comforting.
|Naturally I covered the walls. Including a shrine to the Royal Wedding. And what?|
|Can you beat the sleep in your home home bed?|
|Fairy lights are obvs a must. I may or may not have three sets in my room.|
