Top Tips for Spring Cleaning

Winter is slowly on its way out and with the first day of spring quickly approaching (20th March) there’s only one thing to do; spring clean! I think in winter I tend to get a bit lazy as the cold weather makes me less inclined to clean. I’d much rather be wrapped up on the couch with my girl, a film and a blanket. Sometimes we need a bit of a a kick up the bum to get going. I’m working with Bed Guru to share my tips for spring cleaning and de-cluttering. Be sure to check the end of

Ditching the high chair

Erin was born premature which meant that a regular high chair was far too big for her when we started weaning. I spent ages and ages looking at other options and I finally decided on the Chicco Polly Magic High Chair. This was amazing for Erin when she was still so small but over the last four or five months maybe, she’s really grown to hate it. I have no idea why. The minute you put her in it she got annoyed, cried and sometimes even screamed. It has made meal times quite hard at times. Sometimes she would flat

Toy Storage Dreams

Yesterday I posted a review of the toy storage we bought from Next in the sale. As much as I love it, we STILL need more storage. Erin has some larger toys downstairs that are just on the side and she also has a room full of toys as well. Christmas and her birthday was insane and even after trying to clear out some old toys, we have them everywhere. I guess this is life now. Anyway, I thought I’d put together a post about toy storage that would make our lives loads easier! Tidy Books Bookcase – £154.50 (Tidy

Next Toy Storage Review

When my VIP slot opens for the Next sale online the first category I go to is children’s furniture, hoping for a bargain for Erin’s room. During the last sale I managed to bag a 5 tier storage system for £25 instead of £50. After the madness that was Christmas and Erin’s 1st birthday, our living room resembled a toy shop and I needed some kind of order. Unfortunately, Next don’t have anything similar anymore so I can’t link to it. I was a bit silly really and didn’t take photos of the building process. However, this storage system was

The Best Office Furniture

When we bought our house we picked a doer upper.  I had always planned on one part of our living room/ dining room being a library seeing as we have so many books. However, Erin pulls at things now so we’ve had to change this. All of the books are in the loft and I have a bit of an open space to consider. My little space is now going to be turned into my very own office!This means that I have to figure out what furniture to put in there and I’ve spent some time looking for the best office

Garden storage from Keter

One of the first tasks when we bought our house was to tackle the garden. Last year we managed to finish clearing it all, get some decking laid and also get a pretty big big of lawn laid as well. It all looked beautiful until Jackson destroyed the grass with his poison pee. Anyway, the one thing we lacked was garden storage. We have a shed at the bottom of the garden but it’s such a mess. It has woodworm, a rotten floor and a massive hole in the back where something keeps digging its way in or out. This

Pride of place

It’s been a while since I have written anything to do with the house. To be honest, I haven’t had the time or money to do anything to it. Recently though, I have given Erin pride of place in our living room. A few weeks ago at Baby Sensory we were able to have a photo session with Louise Walpole Photography which was fantastic. The session didn’t cost us anything and there was no pressure to buy anything. However, I loved most of Erin’s photos so I had to buy some. Last week I found some chunky black 7×5 frames in Sainsbury’s

Review: Chicco Polly Magic High Chair

Being so small Erin did not fit into a high chair very well. They all looked way too big for her and I was always worried that she wouldn’t be secure enough. After a lot of research I came across the Chicco Polly Magic Highchair which, unlike others, stated that it was suitable from birth instead of 6 months. As soon as I saw it, I knew it was the one for us and I had to have it. Price and availability Up until now I have been quite frugal when it comes to shopping for Erin. I have bought
