My name is Sarah-Jane, or ‘SJ’ as my friends know me and I am a full-time mum, blogger, Instagrammer, freelance brand consultant, holiday rental property manager, and events organiser. I’m all-encompassing and constantly on the go, I love a project and often juggle far too many balls!
I live in a village a little way outside of London with my husband Matt, my three gorgeous children James, Riley, and Scarlett and my small menagerie of animals. We have two wonderful dogs called Percy and Sky, two loving cats called Apollo and Bailey, two cheeky little Shetland ponies called Tommy and Kenny, four egg-laying chickens and one rather noisy Cockrell called Colin!
As a family, we love being active and enjoy nothing more than getting stuck into new adventures, whether it be on camping trips, holidays abroad, or quite simply, weekend pony rides and long dog walks to the pub. Weekends for us are always busy, if we are not socialising with friends or family, we are in the garden tackling the flower beds and up ladders cutting back the ever-growing climbing plants which surround the house! We enjoy life and believe every day should count!
Our home is our sanctuary, a place where many happy memories are formed and where my most cherished possessions live (my children, my man, and my animals). So when it comes to making our house a home, our home, I can think of nothing better than to make it the place that I love.
Why the blog?
My blog began in June 2016 when we moved out of our house and into an onsite static caravan. We were on a build journey to transform our rather dated, cold (we had no central heating, just electric oil heaters, and a coal-burning stove), and unstylish house into a 21st-century family home which is now warm, comfortable, technologically driven and interiorly rather slick. Throughout the whole 8 months, I diarised the unfolding of our build and experiences as a family. I shared my pictures through Instagram which was the springboard to ‘Just A Little Build’. We are now living in the house (and loving it!) and slowly furnishing it room by room.
With the build now complete my blog primarily focusses on home interiors, lifestyle and any new projects which we decide to embark on. There are a few exciting projects in the pipeline such as the renovation of our holiday home in Cornwall, leathouse.com, a Scandinavian-style home office and an entertaining space at the end of the garden.
