Can you maintain your own car?

It’s fair to say I have had my share of minor car blunders since I hit the road 3 years ago. From locking the keys inside the car to flat tyres on the school run and even being pushed down the road by the guys at the local car wash I have been left a little red faced more than once. I would be lying if I said I had a vast knowledge in car maintenance I tend to leave it to someone else and when it does go all wrong I call my dad. It was getting a little ridiculous…

Finishing Touches and why I can’t finish them..

Redecorating is hard graft. I recently discovered this when redoing our bedroom. My home felt like chaos for days as furniture scatted the hall way and then process seemed to be never ending it was always a case of oh we will need to replace this or this won’t match now. It is finally (after a few weeks and maybe a tantrum or two) taking shape and the idea I had in my head is coming to life, I love the way it is looking with the blush pinks and greys tying in beautifully. If you’re anything like me you’ll agree…
