Boasting The Best Possible Home For Your Young Family

Before we even make the move into the world of purchasing a house. We’ll run through all of the details that we’re going to add – all of the cute design and the personal touches that match our personalities. We often get ahead of ourselves and start to get lost in the idea of customising our new abode. Something that can sometimes get lost in all of the wonders is the responsibilities we have as grown-ups to keep things safe around us – and that becomes even more significant as our kids come into this world.

Thinking Of Going Back To Work? Read This

When you’re a mama, you know that your main job is looking after your babies. And it really is the best job in the world. To be able to become a parent and raise a family - it’s such a blessing. But at the same time, because it’s so incredible, a lot of women feel guilty. They feel as if they just have to be at home with their children all of the time. And that wanting anything else or wanting to go back to work is just wrong. But it’s not. Because you can be a mother, and an amazing mother at that, and work. You can. You’re able to have boundaries and space from your children, to teach them independence, and get a bit of yourself back. Which is great, especially if you need the money that you’ll get from working. But, the biggest question is, how are you going to do it?

Is Your Garden Suitable For Children?

Running around in the garden is what childhood dreams are made of. Catching insects, making mud pies, kicking a football around and generally burning off some steam. It might seem like an extremely safe place to let your child be free, but there are lots of hidden dangers lurking. Maybe you’ve recently moved to a new home, or perhaps your child is at an age where they’re much more active and mobile than they were last summer. Either way, here are some things to bear in mind.

Remove any rubbish and debris
Things like bricks or paving slabs piled up in the corner, old scrap metal that you’ve not got round to moving yet and areas of pooled water that have been left to fester can all be issues for children. If it’s a big job, hire a skip and a handyman, otherwise load all rubbish into your car and take it to the tip.

Be wary of dangerous plants
Plants can be dangerous if they’re poisonous, especially as children can pick things and then put their hands in or near their mouth. Lots of common garden varieties can be toxic so be sure to do your research before filling your pots and flowerbeds. You’ll also want to remove things like brambles and stingers, as they can cause a lot of pain if a child falls into them while they’re playing.

Glorious Gardening: Getting Ready For The Spring Weather!

Thankfully, the worst of the winter weather is coming to an end. By the end of next month we should all be home free, with (hopefully!) no more snow or gale force winds to deal with until next winter. Once the milder weather sets in, it’s a chance to get back out in the garden again- and at least make a start on making it nice again ready for the summer. If you’re planning on getting out into the backyard as soon as the last of the snow has passed, here’s what you need to do to get everything back in order!
