Family Day Out - Farmer Copley's

A few weeks ago we planned to have a family day out, and found an event on at Farmer Copleys that looked fun. We visited the farm last year to see the pumpkins and had a lovely day out then. But unfortunately Tommy had been poorly so we didn't head out as early as planned. We still headed to the farm, but didn't bother going into the event because it was late in the afternoon. But the farm has a lovely shop and a few animals to look at. There was also a tractor that Tommy absolutely loved. It was the first time he'd really smiled in days after being so poorly.

Here are some photos from our trip out.

Key Questions To Ask Before Building A Loft Conversion

When you’ve got a young family, having the kids share a room isn’t a problem. As they start to get a bit older, they may not want to do that anymore. By the time they’re teenagers, it becomes more and more ideal to be able to give them their own space. For a lot of families, that means moving into a bigger house. But when your family has grown up together in that house, you may not like the idea of leaving it behind, so, what can you do? A simple solution is to convert your loft into another bedroom. It’s perfect for teenagers when they want to hide away at the top of the house and not be bothered, and it’ll give you the space that you need. If you think that a loft conversion might be for you, don’t do anything without answering these questions first.

Here are a few ways to ensure that your home generates and retains enough heat to keep things cosy this Autumn.
