Some of you may be aware that my fabulous parents have crossed the pond and made the very long journey to pay Mr B and I a visit. Life has been so busy the past few months, my countdown to their arrival went from over one hundred sleeps to 1 sleep in the blink of an eye! And you all know I love a good countdown!
House guests means preparations and preparations that I love. Remember the last time I had house guests? Most of my preparations this time round have been about food and what we will eat and where! I know I have a tough few weeks ahead of me!
Back home I’ve gone into guest room mode and I always have this image of how I want a guest room to look (I blame Pinterest for that) but sadly, there are lots of things in my house that are there and not by choice. I can only work with what I’ve got and it doesn’t take much or cost much for that matter to pretend like our house is somewhere worth staying. I added a few little goodies like toiletries I know they like, samples I know mum would like to try, the city essentials and a well stocked drinks trolley will hopefully make up for the brown patterned carpet! At the end of the day they are here to see us so I guess that’s all that counts!
Do you like having house guests? How do you prepare? Will I be envious of your guest room?

Aw!! Hope you have the loveliest time! Delighted to see I’m not the only one who’s a sucker for a cute, matching tissue box. And your bar cart! Fab.
The bar cart is so bad it’s good and almost matches the brown carpet 😂
