What We’d Like To Do Around The House In 2020

Our house isn’t in the best condition. In fact, it’s in pretty bad condition although definitely not as bad as it could be I guess. We bought our house in 2014 and we haven’t really been able to do much to it. We started off well, having a new garden fence and turf as well as having 2 bedrooms re-plastered with new skirting boards and doors. When I found out I was pregnant with Erin everything stopped. We ran out of money so we have had absolutely nothing else done since I think 2015. We have unfortunately been in a

5 Tips For Renting With Pets

AD | Collaborative post We might have bought our very first house 5 years ago now but before then both John and I have rented in various different places. There are so many different things to look for when choosing a rented property, especially if you have pets, so I thought I would share some of my tips! Start looking early One of the biggest problems with trying to rent with pets is that a lot of landlords or agencies just wont accept tenants with pets. There is a large rental market but if you are restricting your options then

Home Tasks To Do This Year

AD | Collaborative post I love the start of a new year! There is something so refreshing about it. Everyone has new goals and aspirations and it just seems like because of that, things are happier, healthier, and more lively. I could not be more excited to celebrate the beginning of a (hopefully) great year, but there is also a lot to be done over the next few weeks to prepare your home for the cool weather because with a new year, typically comes cooler weather. It’s funny because we are already in the heat of the cool weather season,

What To Think About When Moving House In Winter

AD | Collaborative post Spring seems to be one of the most popular times of year for looking to buy a new house. However, house sales can take months to go through sometimes, depending on the chain involved either side. It could be winter by the time you move in and there are lots of things to consider that you may not have thought about during your viewings. Moving companies Moving house is such an exciting time but I think it can be easy to get caught up in everything that’s going on. When we moved house for the first

Living In A Hard Water Area

AD | Includes a gifted item When you move to a new area you don’t really think about what the water is like beforehand. Before moving to Norfolk nearly 7 years ago I certainly didn’t look up if it was a hard or soft area before deciding whether or not I wanted to live here. Unfortunately, we do actually live in an area that is terrible for hard water. Over the past 7 years I have lost count of how many kettles we have gone though. It actually took us a really long time to figure out what was wrong

Creating A Cosy Corner With BeanBagBazaar

AD | Gifted item With Erin just about to turn 4 she is quickly realising that she wants different things in her bedroom. The way she uses the space now is vastly different from how she did even a year ago. She wants somewhere comfortable and cosy to chill out and relax and somewhere to sit and look at her books. I wanted to get something that would last Erin a long time and work well for at least the next few years. We recently received the ICON™ Kenai Faux Fur Bean Bag in Arctic wolf. BeanBagBazaar also sell children’s bean bags but

What To Think About When Designing Your Child’s Bedroom

AD | Paid collaboration When we bought our house we did so with the idea in mind that Erin would have a fairly big bedroom. I always had a small bedroom and I never felt like I could really spread out and relax in there. I had the box room for a long time and I remember wanting to have options for where my furniture went or I wanted to be able to have friends over without being squished. Now that we have a house with space and Erin has a room with loads of options, I can really think

VonHaus Colonial Storage Chest Review

AD | Gifted At this time of year I am in constant preparation for Christmas and Erin’s birthday on New Year’s Day. I’m sure you can imagine how much stuff we end up with at home within a short space of time. Between Christmas and birthday presents Erin get a lot of new things and of course, they all need to go somewhere. While I do try to have a bit of a clear out beforehand that’s not always enough so this year I have looked into new storage options. Wanting something clean, simple and something that would hide quite
