Creating a Kids Bedroom that's Timeless

The problem with decorating a child’s bedroom is that they change their mind very quickly and if you are not careful you will have to decorate it every year. When they are young they have fads on TV and film characters and it is a big mistake to decorate their room with them. One year they could be in love with Winnie the Pooh and the next it could be the Power Rangers. Then they will want the whole room done again. The secret is to have something in the room that relates to their current fad, but not to decorate the room around it.

How to Create Space In Your Home On a Budget

If you love your home, but would like to make the most out of your space, and you find yourself squeezed, it might be time to think about smart solutions that will improve your lifestyle and help you avoid the painful and expensive experience of moving house. Below you will find a few tips on how to make the most out of your home and create space on a budget.


Whether you need space to entertain your friends or to engage in your hobby, you can add a conservatory to your kitchen. You might even move your dining room to the conservatory, provided that you have adequate insulation for the winter. Whenever you decide to erect Glass extensions, you need to consider the energy efficiency of the building and the heating and insulation costs, to be sure your project is worth the investment.


If your home is simply too big for your palm trees and other plants, you might want to create an orangery that will help you keep the plants that usually live outdoors in the summer safe during the cold months. You will not need a lot of insulation, but will have to make your home frost free, so your tropical plants are feeling at home and can create the right environment for you to read a book or curl up with a drink.

Christmas/Festive Family Bucket List

Christmas Day 2017 after spending hours in A&E

This time last year I was heavily pregnant and eagerly awaiting the arrival of our baby boy. So although we did a few things to celebrate Christmas, it was very low key. In fact our Christmas day was spent seeing midwives, doctors and sitting in A&E. So this year I'm excited for the upcoming festive season, especially as our oldest boy Tommy will be 3 this December, he is really starting to take things in and show interest in the magic of Christmas.
