I'm back!

Hello, it's lovely to be back and I feel ready to restart my blog. I've missed catching up, but life has rather got in the way for the last few months.

I thought I would start by introducing myself again.  I'm Julie, 52, married with three sons age 23, 21 and 19.  When I asked my husband how he would like to be referred to he said 'my long suffering partner' but I think I'll go with Lucky To Have Me (LTHM for easier reference!)  Living in a home of all boys probably influences the very 'girly' nature of my work and needless to say they are not very impressed.

I thought I'd put a photo up so you know who you're talking to... I was waiting for a day when I don't look tired, but I have a dog who doesn't sleep in past 6 O'Clock, so that's never going to happen!  More about him later.



OK, back to the dog... most of you know him by now.  He is a basset hound (the second one we have had) and because I work from home he spends most of his time with me and consequently is a mummy's boy!  He is also the only member of the family who will allow his photos on here



I live in a house that was brand new when we moved in.  We have now been here 11 years and it can be too big when the boys aren't here (travelling, working and at uni respectively) going from just two of us here to seven over easter with all of them here plus two girlfriends, so we can't see ourselves downsizing quite yet.  I'll show you some inside photos another day


We would like one day to move to something slightly in the country with enough garden to grow veg and keep chickens... one day.

Hopefully that has given you a little insight please leave me messages I love to hear from you and will always reply and if you've any questions please ask me anything!  Some of you may have come across my blog via my website, but if you haven't you can find it at www.haggiz.co.uk

Have a good week.

Julie xx

  1. It is so lovely to have you back Julie. I have thought of you much whilst you have been away. Your home is lovely! Oooh.....I love those windows in the roof...is that an attic? Your dog is very sweet, He looks like 'king of the castle' sitting ever so comfortably on your sofa. I look forward to seeing what gorgeous makes you whip up in the months ahead. I have missed your whimsical and pretty buntings!!

    1. Hi Kim, lovely to hear from you. I have still been reading your blog although not commenting, but will get back into that too. The windows in the roof are for 2 more bedrooms and a shower room, which is great with teenage boys! Yes Harry does tend to frequent whichever sofa he can get away with. This is our newest purchase and my husband finally relented to letting him up there after I bought a lambswool throw to put on there (spoilt baby!) Thank you for your lovely comments and I will certainly be putting some makes up here in the months to come x

  3. Good to have you back Julie! It's not difficult to see who is the boss in your house... the one who allows his pictures on the blog?
