Qixels Kingdom Castle Play Set

This week we have been very excited to have been trying out Qixels Kingdom Castle Play Set from Character Online. Qixels are colourful cubes that fuse together with a spray of water, enabling little ones to build their very own pixelated characters to play with in their kingdom. First we assembled the castle which was super easy with the interlocking pieces. We then prepared the plastic trays that we would be using to fit the cubes too. You get the choice of 6 characters… View Post

6 Top Picks For A Perfect Bathroom Makeover

  I think out of all the rooms in our home, the bathroom is one of my favourites.  Partly because of the sky light. I was instantly drawn in by this when we first viewed the house 8 years ago. It lets so much light, it’s just so bright and airy, I love it. And of course it’s a place where I can escape and have a nice soak in peace (well sometimes, if the kids let me). My current theme is nautical, but… View Post

5 Ways To Maximise Space In Your Home

When we first moved in to our home, pre kids, we were so impressed with the generous sized rooms. Everything had a place and all was organised, just how I like it. However when the little ones came along, the space was slowly consumed by the extra furniture and copious amounts of toys, as I am sure all parents can relate to. With a little thought and planning, we managed to retrieve that space and open up the rooms once again!… View Post

But for now I am holding on. Holding on tight to that little hand of yours, I am enjoying the endless supply of cuddles you give. The giggles we share when we gang up on Daddy and tickle him!… View Post

Tips And Tricks To Conquer That Laundry Pile

Laundry ; [lawn-dree, lahn-] A forever growing mountain of stinky clothes. What is it with washing baskets? It turns into some kind of celebratory event when we can actually see the bottom of one doesn’t it?! With my brood, that is quite a rarity. My washing machine is constantly battling our laundry pile, spin after spin, day after day.  Coming to think of it, our clothes take a serious bashing. From washing, tumble drying, ironing and everyday wear and tear, I… View Post

linky for bloggers
Hello your gorgeous lot! How was your week last week? Mine was a really positive one! I had amazing results from my pulmonary sarcoidosis check up on Thursday. It seems my lungs have recovered and it has cleared up completely. I haven’t been discharged, but I don’t have to attend the regular lung function tests now which is fab. I could have almost done a happy dance I was so relieved.  Then Friday saw me chatting on the phone to… View Post
