We finally have a new home

We have finally move home…. YAY, finally! After selling our house back in April and lots and lots of issues along the way we have finally moved into our new home. Its been a dream for so long and it was a dream I wasn’t sure would come true but finally it has. We moved home on Thursday 12th October 2017 and what a day it was. The kids were at school and nursery which was great because we could just get on with everything and didn’t have to worry about the kids and what they were doing. I did… View Post

Plans for our new home with Velux Blinds Direct

A lot of you who follow my blog will know we have literally just moved home. It has been such an exciting yet stressful time, I can now however see light at the end of the tunnel. We have already started talking about making the house our own and what we can do to make it feel like we have put our stamp on it. We are getting the kids rooms decorated within the next couple of weeks, I feel it is the most important to concentrate on getting them settled. We have a lot of short-term cheaper plans decorating,… View Post

With Christmas just around the corner I am pretty sure a lot of you will have already started Christmas shopping. I Christmas shop all year round picking up little bits that I see along the way.

Find me a Gift have some fantastic items and I could sit and look through all the products all day. There are some really different but cool… View Post

Is Your Kitchen Delivering The Goods

For many people, the kitchen is one of the most important rooms in the home. It is where you prepare meals for the family, and it often acts as something of a communal area for people to get together as well. Clearly, you want the kitchen to be as close to perfect as possible, given what a central role it plays in the family life day to day. But it is possible that your kitchen is not quite up to scratch. This can easily happen over time, with one thing or another, and it is worth looking into every now… View Post

Road trip with Children

Have you ever thought of taking a road trip? I think the idea of a road trip is amazing, you get to see and visit so many places rather than staying in one place for a couple of weeks. I have been looking at road trips that would suit us as a family of 4 with two young children. A road trip doesn’t have to be about travelling to lots of different countries such as a road trip around Europe, you can have a Road trip around France, America and just one country that you love. I think travelling around… View Post

Keeping our memories safe in a Photobook

We have just recently arrived back home after having a lovely holiday in Greece. As a blogger I always take way too many photos and end up having to sit for hours sorting through them when we get home. I love taking pictures to remember every part of our holiday and with the kids growing up so fast those photo memories are always so special. I love nothing more than looking through old pictures of the boys and us as a family to see how we have grown and changed. I was given the chance to review a photo book… View Post

Are you Autumn ready?

It’s that time of year, the time where you have to pack away all the summer clothes and get out the warm cosy Autumn/winter stuff. It does make me sad having to pack away the dresses, shorts and tee shirts however I do love a big oversized jumper to keep me lovely and warm. I have put together a few of my favourite items from Lyst which is a fab website bringing together many different brands. I just love the fact that you can browse so many items all in one place rather than chopping and changing to different websites. Maybe… View Post

We finally exchanged

YAY, so as you can see by the title of the post we finally exchanged contracts. We sold our house on the 6th April 2017 and on Thursday 28th September. After so many hiccups along the way and getting to the point where I actually didn’t see the move happening we are finally here. I am finally packing up our life into cardboard boxes to move it all to what will be our new home. We are all so excited with a hint of anxiety thrown into the mix. It’s a new place and we have no friends close by,… View Post
