Choosing new windows for our house

When we moved home we actually didn’t realise how bad a condition the windows were in. It wasn’t something we had factor into our budget to have done, however after being here for a year we really need to look at getting them replaced. After a few weeks of being here we noticed that most of the windows had some kind of gap in one place or another. It was obviously letting in a draft and when it got really cold last winter it was very obvious something needed to be done. We had many things which we actually wanted… View Post

Moving home check list

We have now been in our new home for just over a year, yet it only seems like yesterday we moved. I remember just like it was yesterday the stresses of moving home and it really was a stressful time.

It can become all too much if you are trying to juggle moving home, looking after your family and holding down a job al at the same time. I have put together… View Post

New Pjs for the whole family

We were recently gifted some lovely new PJs from Pyjamas.com. Not sure about you guys but I just love new Pjs, putting them on and getting cosy in these winter months when the nights are dark early its great. We all choose which ones we wanted and because of the amount of choice for the kids it took a while. The boys went for PJMasks and Pixel short Pjs and they were both really happy with this, as you can see. Little Man never likes to wear long Pjs not even in the winter months as he gets too hot… View Post

New flooring for our home

Since we moved a year ago we haven’t had chance to do any of our flooring downstairs. The carpet is a pale cream colour which is the worst colour when you have children of there ages of 7 and 4. There is always something being spilt of a mark getting on the carpet. We have been discussing and think wooden laminate flooring would be the best option for our living room.

Whilst we all want to go on a ski holiday to have fun and enjoying sliding down the slopes at high speed, or in my case sliding down on my bottom we all know safety must come first.

Getting some Winter Sun

Doug and I are getting to the point where we really would love some winter sun. This year we decided not to have a holiday abroad because we had recently moved home.

They have such a massive choice of items for you to look through and choose. The swim wear… View Post
