A Mud Kitchen Makeover For Under £20

For Erin’s 4th birthday we bought her a mud kitchen. She’s getting to an age now where she’s got everything that we could think of as a ‘big’ present but we wanted to get something that she would get a lot of use out of. Of course, the beginning of the year meant that the mud kitchen didn’t get played with all that much, thanks to the bad weather. But, it’s an idea toy for the garden and we wanted to make sure we made the most of it. There was really nothing wrong with

Attracting Wildlife Into Our Garden

This year we have been determined to do something a bit different with our garden. After a neighbour kindly gave us their old shed it really got us motivated to give the back area a big makeover. We worked really hard over a couple of weeks and completely transformed the area for Erin. Something we were lacking in the garden, both before and now, was something to help attract wildlife. We don’t have any trees or bushes and we only now have plants thanks to my Mum creating an area with lots of pots on

Creating A Fun Outdoor Play Area At Home

AD | Includes gifted item As a non-driving family we’re not always able to make a quick decision to go for a day out in the woods, the beach or to an amazing National Trust property. A lot of great places are only accessibly by car which sadly rules them out for us. However, we love being outdoors and Erin loves nothing more to play outside. It’s so important for children to learn about things such as nature, to get some fresh air and to exercise outside so we have done our best to create

Wickey MultiFlyer DeLuxe Climbing Frame Review

AD | Includes gifted item Our back garden has always been somewhere that we spend a lot of time, especially since Erin was born. Sometimes it can be hard to get out and go somewhere but we also don’t want to be stuck indoors. Now that Erin is 4, getting on for 5, we have been planning to make the back garden more child friendly and fun. Although we have had smaller things for Erin to play with, nothing was enough to make her want to stay outside for any real length of time. What

The Start Of A Garden Makeover

When we moved into this house something we were quite excited about was having a large shed. We’d never had an actual garden before so having a huge 8×6 (I think) shed sounded like a great thing for us. However, we soon realised that not only did we not need that much space but we also managed to fill it with so much rubbish that we had to have someone come to remove it all for us… twice. We don’t drive so taking things to the tip ourselves wasn’t an option but it did mean

Tips for Creating a Rustic Garden

AD | Collaborative post In the world where fast fashion and mass production seem to have reached their peak, it comes as no surprise that some people are returning back to basics. That’s one of the reasons that the rustic design is becoming so increasingly popular. In layman’s terms, the word “rustic” is often used to describe something that’s simple in nature, yet sturdy, usable and practical. However, in the décor world, rustic pieces are the ones that are of high-quality and somewhat unique in terms of not really being able to obtain them just

How to Clear Your Shed and Make it More Organised

AD | Collaborative post with Kwiksweep It’s that time of year again, where we’re all looking to spend more time in our garden. However, for most of us, before we can truly relax and enjoy the good weather – we have to deal with our sheds, which are often dumping grounds for all the things we can’t fit into our homes.  Over time, though, these sheds or huts can become totally cluttered meaning many of us can’t even get into our sheds in order to find what we need. If this sounds like you, it’s

Celebrating Hover Week With Flymo

AD | Gifted item Over the past couple of months while we have been spending a lot more time at home our garden has been a real special place for us. Without it, we would definitely not be doing as well as we are right now. Living in a small town means that we don’t have many options for long walks or places to explore and it can really feel like we are stuck at home sometimes. I know how lucky we are to have a great outdoor space to call our own but sometimes
