  •   annainternational Damn cat nudged me I was going to say when he was starving in the dog pound in Italy they had hardly any food so they all did it. Luckily as soon as he realised food would arrive every day at the same time he stopped! I hear puppies grow out of it soon enough. X 2d

athriftymrsuk Finally peeling the plastic layer off the extractor fan! The kitchen is almost there. It has been a long time coming! Now we have shedded shards of fine, white, sticky plastic on every available surface in the downstairs rooms. #thriftyreno #pinkkitchen 4d

athriftymrsuk Happy #NationalDogDay from this lovely chap who I adore endlessly. Every day, without fail he cheers me along and props me up with love. He is sweet natured although neurotic. He is sarcastic but caring. He made me capable of so much more than I thought I could ever do. He might "only" be a dog to some people but to me he is family and one of the sweetest living creatures I have ever had the pleasure to encounter. I am truly blessed to have him in my life. #ThriftyJarvis #yorkie #yorkshireterrier 4d

athriftymrsuk The final coat of #Chartreuse paint has gone on the walls in the down stairs loo. I LOVE it. Can't wait to add all of the decor items I've been collecting for years. #thriftyreno If you can't do a vivid colour in the downstairs loo, then what's the point of having one (apart from the obvious)? 6d
  •   mumsmakelists gorgeous colour 6d
  •   kateytots Ooh so pretty!! 6d
  •   hazelxjoy I wonder if I can get away with painting my bedroom this colour. I'm sure the husband wouldn't mind too much! 6d
  •   novemberstormsblog Knew that would be gorgeous!! 6d
  •   kirstenlovestea Love it! I can just imagine a wall of prints and old mag covers...or even war prop posters in there! 6d
  •   claireepoppins I've been swithering about this for our downstairs shower room 6d
  •   sbatch04 Def works. .I've got purple in my downstairs loo with some cake and sweet related pics 6d
  •   aliceclondon Amazing! I had such a yellow kitchen that I had to restrain myself to chartreuse accessories in an otherwise neutral bathroom 5d

athriftymrsuk Nope, no I haven't been doing something I shouldn't. No I don't know what you mean. I totally have not been shredding toilet roll, no idea where you got that idea from. #fluffypuppy #ThriftyLionel #shihpoo #shihtzu #shihtzumix #poodlecross #pooshih #pooshie 6d

athriftymrsuk #HITPLAY #video When I was at uni in Liverpool I was going though a lot of mental anguish and family turmoil. Sometimes I'd pay the couple of quid to take the train out here in secret to Crosby and a few hours on this beach filled with views of huge sea vessels and litter (it is now much cleaner and well maintained) managed to cheer me up. Mr Thrifty and I came here on many dates back in 2005 and have had some major life events occur here. We don't get to come here as often as we keep moving further in land but each and every time we do I feel a sense of calm and wellbeing that I rarely feel elsewhere. Do you have a special place like this? 7d
  •   elliqueen Lovely - being on a beach is always calming imho 7d
  •   hackenshmit I have places all around, that I call my happy places. Where I can escape to wherever I am to find some peace. Most of them are around water. I find it very soothing and grounding. 7d
  •   liv_liv_livvy This is my special place too- I live just down the road in hightown and I always escape to Crosby beach for some calm x 7d
  •   dandelion.gem Anywhere in Wales. We live in near the city in Stoke-on-Trent atm and it's pretty stressful, I'm a country girl at heart... As soon as I get over the border and breathe in the fresh air my shoulders drop I feel relaxed 7d
  •   chippernelly Yes! A place called Gesail in snowdonia. It might be the only place in the world I feel that kind of calm. 7d
  •   elenalucie Mine is Penarth Pier in South Wales. We got engaged there and have a little plaque halfway down the pier with our engagement and wedding date on. We're going to get another plaque in memorial of our son and are thinking about scattering his ashes there too. There's an awful lot to be said for finding peace by the sea. 7d
  •   scottish.heart Edinburgh is my place. I feel like it's my place in the world and I have that 'complete' feeling whenever I'm there. 7d
  •   chambrayandcurls Birling gap beach. Been going rain and shine since I was born and it always fills my heart to spend time there. The sea does the soul good, I swear 6d

  •   vintage_reflection Your lucky, it's tipping it down in London!! 7d
  •   19xjemmax19 I was on this beach for the first time 3 - 4 hours ago. Been on my hit list to see for quite some time!! Shame I didn't see you! @athriftymrsuk x 7d
  •   dutchirene Those statues are quite something aren't they? 7d

athriftymrsuk Finally painting the kitchen! #thriftyreno - I said we needed to cover everything but Mr Thrifty was all like "nah" thank heavens I insisted because we'd have a lot of spatters on the worktop, floor and cupboards, dick. #notthemostcarefulofpainters 1w
