It's safe to say I'm a bit of a box set addict. I like nothing more than a good thriller or drama, full of twists and turns. Here's a run down of the shows I'm currently watching...
It’s safe to say most of us could do with more hours in the day. Sometimes, it feels as though finding time to shower is a struggle, let alone tackling all the other things you need to do around the house. And, let’s be honest; there are a lot of other things higher up the to-do list than decorating. Spending time with your kids is, of course, a priority. Then, there are tasks such as cooking, cleaning, and making time for your partner. And the list goes on!
It’s no wonder, then, that many of us struggle to consider our home decoration. In fact, for some busy families, this is a task which forever falls off the radar. It isn’t unusual to simply stick to the decor which was in place when you moved in. After all, it does the job, right?
Of course, it does. But, feeling at home is essential, and you might struggle to do that with someone else's decor choices. Instead, it’s time to take control of time. Or, at least find a way to fit decoration into your life. Lucky for you, that may not be as difficult as you’re expecting. All you need to do is find ways to minimise or manage the workload. And, I've got a few suggestions which could help you do it.
Preparing your garden as early as possible not only gives you a head start on your Spring gardening but reaps benefits throughout the whole year.

We have recently moved house and there is a lot of decorating to do. I mean every room and we are talking major redecoration, not just a lick of paint. But this is our forever home so we have the rest of our lives to sort it out!
We've finally moved house! Hurrah! One of the (many) rooms which needs a complete overhaul is our kitchen. Not only is it dated but definitely wasn't designed with kids in mind! You may also be in this situation, a stylishly placed dishwasher, built in knife block and low-placed wine rack aren't very practical when there are little ones running around!
So how can you make your kitchen kid friendly without comprising style and sophistication? Don’t worry – you don’t have to wrap everything in bubble wrap either! Here you’ll find a few tips on how to make your kitchen a safer place for everyone to enjoy.
We moved house this week which was rather epic. A lot of mixed emotions flying around. Whilst I am super excited to me move to a bigger home saying goodbye to our old house which holds so many wonderful memories was difficult. We bought both our babies home to that house. The little room which was the nursery both times was the hardest room to close the door on. So I’ve decided to share a picture of our last meal together in the old house before I start making new memories in our new home.
When you live in a family home, sometimes it can feel like you are overwhelmed with clutter so any extra space that you can create around the place would be a welcome relief. Well, this article is here to give you a bit of a helping hand. Rather than focusing on the entire house, we will just zero in on the living room as this tends to be a hub of activity and a room in which junk seems to accumulate very quickly.

However, they are time-consuming, energy-sapping and expensive. Even if you do have the time and energy, an average family doesn’t have the budget.
The alternatives are cosmetic renovations such as painting and plastering. It may literally be covering the cracks, but it helps add a new lease of life to tired properties. Before you break out the Dulux, there are a few things you should know. Firstly, because it’s cosmetic doesn’t mean it can’t go wrong.
Here's five things to keep in mind.
If you’re planning to have children or just received news that you’re going to be a parent in the coming months, then you may be wondering how you can prepare your home and your lifestyle to suit the new arrival. One of the very first things that you’ll have to consider is renovating your home in order to suit your children.
The most common things that people think about are security (such as installing cameras and removing any crawl-level hazards) and preparing a kid’s bedroom. People often overlook the importance of preparing their bathrooms for children as well. A kid-friendly bathroom doesn’t mean adding the latest comic book characters to the wall or having colourful tubes of toothpaste, so in this post, we’re going to go in-depth on how you can change your bathroom to be more suitable for children.
