I forgot this morning to introduce you all to Mungo, thanks for all the help with the name selection by the way. Super affectionate, super smelly (we’ve had baths and he is getting a little more fragrant) plus on the weekend we are off to the groomers so that should help. Maud who smells like a peanut just so you know keeps sniffing him and then holding her nose in the air. He also suffers from separation issues following either Graham or me everywhere the last people that had him worked and left him home all day and he howled pissing off the neighbours I believe. One slightly annoying fact is here I am in my lovely studio, scented candle gently fragrancing the air, fire crackling in the hearth , lights softly glowing, THREE different rugs skimming the floor, dog bed (a posh one by my feet with a chew in) and up stairs he lays on floorboards in Graham’s miserable office. No lights on, no music, paperwork all over the floor, socks, old cups of coffee and god knows what else. Boys together I guess – couldn’t imagine what else the attraction could be!
Due to the amazing response I have added a few more dates to the masterclasses to be held in my very own pad during November and December. Its all about decorating for the holidays in a super stylish laid back kind of way so its full to the brim with ideas which you can actually implement year round. Book early as most of the spaces got snapped up within hours you will need to either email the store email@example.com, or call +44 207 354 8181. Its £120 for the day, including lunch and you will have to like dogs as we now have two Mungo and Maud. Hope to see some of you soon xx

Late late late late this morning, not used to a house with two dogs one of which is full of life jumping off of sofas, tables and who knows what else. Maud is not impressed and has mixed reactions about our new edition, hoping beyond hope it will sort itself out.They play together beautifully but she has started attacking other dogs when we are walking with them both on leads – a little troubling to say the least. Anyways Mungo is super sweet and beyond affectionate and loves cuddles, Maud loves the odd cuddle but not with Mungo in on the act as to.
Down to business thank you to everyone who has booked in for my masterclasses, amazing reaction thank you again will be adding a few more dates as they seem to have very nearly sold out which is so exciting. I now have a list as long as my arm of all the revamps that have to be done to the house before you guys arrive. Graham is turning grey at the thought because the list is getting longer and longer it started off one page long and now its three – goes a bit like this, paint banistairs,re paint hall, get more lighting for the garden, create a chandelier from t-lights to hang over the outside table, repaint the kitchen, re paint outside (next door but one are renovating so there is so much dust). Plant more stuff, sort out the tiles in the bathroom, get Mungo and Maud to the hairdressers (get myself to the hairdressers), buy more plates, cups etc etc. Bored yet?
I am trying to get Graham to panel the hall I think it could look really lovely – so a bit like this (see below) its relatively easy to undertake (she says) and adds oodles of style to transitional areas such as hallways especially if you paint it all out the same colour.
Not that Maud, Mungo or I would ever have hair looking so glossy and smooth as this fabulous dog – we all have messy, curly unruly hair – but as they say you can’t have everything. Happy Monday – will post later new dates added to the masterclasses
