It’s Important to Communicate With Your Kids

Communication is of chief importance when it comes to creating a loving and trusting relationship between you and your little ones. If you don’t speak to your children, you won’t know what’s running through their minds. Communicating highlights things that your kids are interested in. It allows you to nurture these areas and help your little ones to get more involved with the things that they’re passionate about. It also helps you to identify more negative aspects of your children’s’ lives. You can find out about their fears, their worries, and their anxieties, which, in turn, will allow you to… View Post

Lounge Updates With Wayfair

Last year the lounge went through a big transformation. The magnolia that had been stinging my eyes since I moved in 3 years ago was long gone and a cool grey in it’s place.

The soft plush is high… View Post

Communicating with your child’s school

I miss the days when they’d come out with a daily report from nursery telling me exactly what they’d done, eaten etc. When children start at primary… View Post

Bathroom Storage Hacks

My new kitchen is being delivered in exactly one weeks time ready to be fitted the following weekend. Is it bad that after all of that planning and organisation, I am already thinking about updates I’d like to make to the bathroom? I know I must be mad, who enjoys all that upheaval but I’d really like to make some changes. The tiles would be first on my list, I would love a more modern look to the bathroom I have seen so many gorgeous Middle Eastern patterns – I love that look right now!
