I am on a mission at the moment to reorganise and de-clutter my house. Clear house, clear mind and all that! Part of that process is to get rid of what we don’t use or need anymore. We have boxes and boxes of clothes and toys that the kids have outgrown, and I have started listing them on eBay
I am always on the lookout for things that will encourage my children’s curiosity and imagination. This ceiling mounted illuminated solar system just does that, and Oliver just loves it!
