168 HOURS IN IBIZA

‘Oh Darling, Let’s be Adventurers’

It was 2.30am and I was woken by the sound of my iPhone alarm…. no amount of snoozing was going to change the fact that the taxi to the airport would arrive in less than a hour. Feeling sick to my stomach and cursing my mother for booking such a god damm early flight, we headed to T1 at Manchester Airport to catch our Jet2 flight to Ibiza. The only other people up at such a ridiculous hour where the usual hen and stag parties and some bloke from Love Island 2016.

A ‘SHREKTACULAR’ 2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY

A ‘SHREKTACULAR’ 2ND BIRTHDAY PARTY

After 8 years of renting, we thought that the ideal time to buy our first home would be when my only income was a measly £500 per month!  It was not just any old house. Oh no. A 1930’s semi that needed completely gutting. The walls were stained, there was an overpowering smell of nicotine, the carpets were circa 1970 and the kitchen was less than 2msq.

For the first 10 weeks of being homeowners, we lived with my parents… 4 adults and a 5-month-old baby was a bit of a tight squeeze! We finally moved into Number Seven on Christmas Eve 2016 and even then it was a further 11 months before the downstairs was habitable.

So here’s the start of our renovation story…

Starting with THE KITCHEN.
