Sorting out our Garden this new year

Over the last year I have been trying to get our garden in some kind of order but it just hasn’t happened. Don’t get me wrong the garden was OK when we moved into our new house, however it needed changing a little to suit us as a family. There were a few bushes and garden areas which were overgrown and needed sorting out. We needed to add a climbing frame for the kids and get the grass looking a little nicer. I have been brought up in a family where gardening is a big part of our lives. My… View Post

Our moving home disaster story

When we moved into our new house we knew it was important to put our gas boiler on a contract in order to have it checked yearly and to be insured against¬†breakdown. The worst thing is your boiler breaking down on a Saturday afternoon in the winter and no insurance for a call out. We called one company to insure the boiler and their policy was to come out and check the boiler first to make sure it wasn’t on its last legs. Anyway after coming out they actually advised us they wouldn’t take the boiler on and condemned it.… View Post

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. There is so much to remember, so many forms to sign, so many things to read and check and just make sure everything is in hand and correct. 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 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. Until we started looking for wooden flooring I had no idea at the amount of choice . I thought it was wood colour and that was it, how wrong… View Post
