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. There was really nothing wrong with the mud kitchen to start with.

AD | Paid collaboration When we bought our house 6 years ago I think we moved in with the idea that we could re-do everything room by room and we could just work our way through things. We only managed to do 2 rooms before Erin was born and we did a fair bit of work on the garden instead. Owning our own home has never really been what we thought it would be and it’s taken us all of this time to really know what we want. Something I have hated about our house for the longest time is
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 an exciting play area at

This may seem like a seemingly obvious point to make, however, many homeowners overlook whether or not their electrical appliances are working in the best way possible, especially with the hustle and bustle of everyday life.

AD | Gifted item For the past couple of months most of us haven’t been going out as much. Shops have been shut until recently and we have been looking to shopping online more to get the things we need.
