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!
Autumn is officially here, but that doesn’t mean you have to stay indoors. I love the changing of the seasons, and love wrapping up warm and finding some outdoor Autumn activities to do with the kids. So if you’re stuck for ideas, here are a few of our favourite things to do when the leaves start to fall.
I honestly thought it might be easier second time round, but in truth it’s not. Harder even maybe. My youngest, my little baby boy starts Primary School tomorrow. The next milestone reached seemingly so quickly, and mummy can’t quite keep up. I’m as emotional tonight, maybe more so, as I was this time last year with his big sister starting.
It’s that time of year again, the summer holiday is all but over. Lots of parents, including myself, have the unenviable task of labelling the new school uniform. But it needn’t be a headache! I discovered these fab iron on name labels last year from Dinkleboo, and I am going to be using them again this year. Easy to apply, last longer than the clothes they’re attached too, and the only decent labels I’ve found that allow you to include a phone number.
Do you love eating and cooking outside? We do! We obviously love having a great British BBQ, but also I have always wanted an outdoor pizza oven. I love the idea of getting friends over and baking bespoke pizzas for everyone, whilst they socialise on the patio.
How many of us moan about not having enough time in the day? I know I do! If you could palm something off, what would it be? For me it would definitely be cleaning the house. I’m sure I am not the only mum that feels like that, and Bidvine may just have the answer.
Now it’s the holidays there is no excuse not to get outside and enjoy your garden (well apart from the weather that is!). If you want some ideas of activities that you can do outside with the kids, then this post is for you.
