When I became a parent I tried to promise myself that I would make more time to keep the house as clean and tidy. Before Erin was born both John and I worked full time and sometimes had to blitz the house in one go just to get it done. What some people seem to forget though is that children are messy… a lot of the time and things get in the way of best made plans. However, someone that does understand this is ACE.

As we don’t really have family close by that we are close to, Erin has never really had a babysitter or been away from me or John since she was born. This means that Erin has been with me every day for the majority of her life and I had no child free time. While I didn’t go back to the full time job I had when I became pregnant, I did go to work in a supermarket part time for 3 evenings a week when Erin was 9 months old. It really wasn’t for me though and I quit

Just recently we have been super lucky as we have been sent some great vacuum cleaners to use. Having only ever really owned cheap models and never being completely impressed I am always looking at what other machines can do and comparing them. Something I had never heard of before though was the Vorwerk Kobold VK200. Not only had I not heard of the machine but I hadn’t heard of the brand before. When I was asked if I would like a trial of the machine I was definitely interested and quite quickly said yes. The Vorwerk Kobold VK200 is quite

When we were looking to buy our first home I found the options quite overwhelming. Not only do you have to think about mortgages, insurance, surveys etc. but before all of that you actually have to find the house you would like to buy.

After taking down the Christmas decorations I always feel like our living room is too bare and a bit lacking in, well, something. I’m never really sure what but it doesn’t feel right just after Christmas. I always feel like I need to add something a bit more at this time of year so I thought I’d put together a little list of ways to revamp your living room this New Year! Pictures If you’re anything like me you will have taken hundreds of photos last year. Actually, I probably took thousands but most of them end up staying in
Christmas is now be over and we’re getting well into January and I’m already looking forward to the nicer weather. While we may spend time curled up inside where it is warm and cosy there is still one part of the home that needs looking after is the garden.

During the summer we have to mow the grass at least every other week
