John Lewis Anti-Allergy Duvet Review

Just before our move I was offered the chance of reviewing a duvet. I have a thing about my covers so I jumped at the opportunity. The 10.5 tog Double duvet arrived but I saved it for when we were in our new home so that everything could be fresh. From my past experience of duvets; the higher the tog, …

“I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about”

I’ve drained my data allowance on my phone, and our home has no Internet set up just yet. I’m getting withdrawals of blogging and to be honest, I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about. So I thought I’d just give you a quick update in photos! I’ll be back very soon! Find me on Facebook & …

“Today was really weird”

Today was really weird. I returned to Essex for P1s swimming lesson and we spent some time with my Grandad. I haven’t seen him since we moved out. I stupidly dressed myself and the girls in summery outfits and forgot coats. Typically for England it rained a lot. This wasn’t the weird part, the odd part about this was that my …

The Trick to Beautiful Kid Friendly Home

Everyone dreams of that magazine-worthy house where everything is where it’s supposed to be, and there are fine lines between furniture. If you have kids though, this remains a dream because they come and pull down all your cushions, paint your walls and break ceramics. According to top interior designers, you don’t have to choose either-or. You can have a …

“I guess change really does effect children in many ways”

I’m experiencing some parenting troubles since the move. I guess change really does effect children in many ways. To start, P1 has really changed in her attitude and behaviour, not really for the better especially at bedtime. She’s doing the things she knows she isn’t allowed like turning the main light on. Although I’ve had excellent reports from her class …

“This move has been very exhausting”

When my OH and I had first decided to move out with each other, back in June 2012, we didn’t know we were actually pregnant with P2. Despite what a lot of people probably thought as the week before we actually moved we found out we were expecting. Anyway, I was pregnant when we moved out and when we packed …

“t’s crazy just how homely the house feels already”

We have moved into our new home. A place for me to bring up my daughters, become a fantastic mother and soon-to-be wife. It’s crazy just how homely the house feels already. P1 has stayed back in Essex tonight and I’m missing her more than ever which doesn’t usually happen! I usually enjoy the time out from her constant chatting …

“I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral”

I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral. Not only was I asked to write, because apparently I’m really good at writing, but I’ve been asked to read out what I’ve written! My Grandad asked me in his really hopeful persuasive way that he has. At first I wasn’t really keen, I’ve never been good at speaking in …
