It is almost a year to the day since we moved to our new house Little L has had his own room since then and we hadn’t got round to really making it his own. I was over the moon when Stickerscape asked if we could work together. Of course I jumped at the chance and chose a beautiful set of Dinosaur wall stickers. Little L has a bit of a thing for dinosaurs Being the younger brother he is quite lucky in that he can play with his big brother’s vast toy collection which includes model dinosaurs ROAR! He is a bit dino crazy, soRead More →

What does the colour of your bedroom say about you? Our house is rented and decorated by our landlord. However, that does not mean we cannot stamp our personality in the bedroom. We moved a year ago! I’m so glad we did because we have a bigger house for the same rent. It is also much more tastefully decorated. Our old bedroom had yellow walls and an orange carpet – YUCK! This house is decorated the same throughout, with muted grey tones on the walls, white ceilings and *shock horror* cream carpets (I’m not a fan of a cream carpet I have to admit theRead More →

You may have read that we moved house last year (you can read about why here). Despite it being a terrible time for us to move it actually worked out for the best and we’ve ended up with a bigger house and garden. The only thing is the garden is a bit, well, boring! Our old house had well established borders which added a lot of green but this house is just grass and a fence. What to do?! Since we rent we can’t really make borders so what I’m planning on is tubs, lots of tubs! I am a big fan of tubs becauseRead More →

In case it has escaped your notice Mother’s Day is fast approaching. As usual I have left this guide until the last minute…unless you’re reading this after 11th March 2018 in which case I’m early – you’re welcome! I decided to create a list of things other than personalised tea towels, teapots and books because, well, I don’t want tea towels, teapots or books and I’m sure I’m not alone. What I would REALLY like is a night out on the tiles and a day off to suffer a hangover in peace but that isn’t going to happen so without further ado feast your eyesRead More →
