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

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,

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

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

Adding A Personal Touch To Our Living Room With My-Picture.co.uk

AD | Paid collaboration Over the past year or so I have been trying to do more things to make our house a bit more homely. We haven’t had much money lately to make many upgrades or have things fixed but we also want Erin to live somewhere as nice as possible. We have a large open plan living room/ dining room and it’s where we spent most of our time. Unfortunately, the walls aren’t in great condition so we can’t do things like paint, decorate or do too much DIY at the moment. This also means not wanting to

VonHaus 15 Drawer Trolley Review

AD | Contains gifted items When we first moved into our house I thought I knew exactly what I wanted and how I wanted each room to be. Now, 5 years on, things have changed a lot. We now have Erin who is nearly 4, a cat and I am self-employed so one of our spare bedrooms is now an office. For ages now I have been looking for the ideal office storage for me and found exactly what I wanted on the VonHaus website. VonHaus have quite a few great storage options but one that immediately stood out to

The Reality Of Owning An Old House

I remember seeing our house for the first time. Well, when I saw it advertised anyway. We had just stated to look for houses and for some reason I was drawn to this one. It went under offer quickly though and I didn’t think about it again. I remember having a conversation with someone at work and saying if it ever came back on the market it was the one I wanted. Not much later this actually happened and I couldn’t believe it. We viewed the house and put in an offer quickly and things went forward quite fast from
