It’s very rare that I take some time out for myself. During the week Erin is home from Saturday-Tuesday and then the other three days a week she is at nursery. The rest of the time I am either doing things around the house or working. Being self-employed means not having regular working ours and sometimes, having to work every day for long hours. I get so tired sometimes that my eyes hurt so much and I find it hard to keep them open and to concentrate on anything! Recently I was sent a Thera-Pearl Eye Mask from Feel Good Contacts so I
We all wish that we had more space in our homes. However, not everyone is lucky enough to be blessed with a massive home to call their own. That doesn’t mean, however, that those with small homes have to resign themselves to a lack of space to decorate and design. In fact, small homes can be just as great as larger homes, you just need to look at slightly different approaches to take. To help you on your way, we have put together our top tips for interior design ideas that are going to work great for your small home.
Buy A Gift is one of my first stops when it comes to buying presents. Buy A Gift sells a MASSIVE selection of gift experiences and gift boxes to suit all needs and preferences.

With Mother’s Day coming up a lot of people will be on the look out for some lovely gifts to give. Today I’m showing you a lovely idea from Stickerscape along with the chance to win something for yourself! In all honestly, I’m a bit of a pain to buy presents for. I never really say if I like something and I hardly ever ask for anything specific for a present. For Mother’s Day, I certainly don’t expect presents but it’s always nice to get something thoughtful. If you’re looking to do something nice for Mother’s Day this year, Stickerscape
I love having my own little corner of the house to work in. Okay, it’s a bit bigger than a small corner as I have a huge Ikea Alex/ Linnmon desk that takes up a big space and I also have a couple of storage units next to and behind the desk. However, my office is far from perfect and there’s loads more I would do with it if I could like moving the cat’s huge scratching post/ house somewhere else!

When I made the decision to go self-employed and quit my job in a supermarket, I knew that things wouldn’t always be easy. Before, I had the security of a regular, although not huge, income and I knew that we would never have to worry about how much money we had at certain times during the month. Being self-employed can be really tough sometimes and we need a bit of help with paying bills. Managing money when you are self-employed can be tough so here’s how we try to deal with it as a family. As a blogger, I can never tell
Your bathroom may be one of the most private rooms in your house, but sooner or later your friends are going to be in there for one reason or another, and the last thing you want is them getting the wrong impression about you or your family home. One way to tell a lot about a person? Their shower curtain, believe it or not. But what does your shower curtain say about you? A plain shower curtain, or one with a slight amount of patterning, works best as part of a basic bathroom look. It shows that you enjoy a
