Redecorating a room using wall murals

My husband and I are always looking for new ways to redecorate our house quickly and easily. As we’re renting, we don’t want to spend too much money, but at the same time we want a great end result. That’s why wall murals are a good choice. I’d love to redecorate our living room. We have beautiful grey sofas with colourful buttons on, but the rest of our living room has remained untouched since we moved in over a year ago. While our storage unit and TV stand matches our sofas, the cream coloured walls and green patterned carpet definitely… [Read More]

Is it possible to feed two year old twins on £60 a week?

I remember the days well before we had children. In particular I remember just how far money used go. Our weekly food shop would come in at £60 a week for the two of us, sometimes less! Since having children that amount has increased substantially! When you factor in nappies, dummies and all the numerous other things children need there’s not much change out of £100! According to the Natwest Cost of Raising a Child Calculator it costs £30 a week to feed a two year old. For obvious reasons I’ve doubled that meaning the national average of feeding two year… [Read More]

My Dream Living Room

I don’t own my home, but I have a pretty good idea of what I want my dream living room to look like. We’re renting at the moment, so I’m reluctant to spend money on our current home, as my husband and I hope to be able to afford our own home by the end of this year. I want colour! Lots of colour! Here are some of my favourite pieces! Top left: Etsy £1,970. Top Middle: Etsy £1,576. Top Left: Etsy £795. Bottom left: Etsy £2,121. Bottom right: Etsy £1,321 I love this style of furniture!

On a mission to lose weight

One of my new years resolutions is to loose weight. After doing some research online and looking at various types of diets I have decided that the one I’ll be following is the NHS Live Well 12 week plan. I used the NHS BMI healthy weight calculator to check my BMI and it came back as 25.64. This means I am overweight, although only just. I thought I would add the NHS BMI healthy weight calculator to this post because chances are if you’re reading this post you may be thinking about loosing weight too so you may find it useful.   BMI… [Read More]

Before You Were Born Meme

Marrakech Do you remember what life was like before you had children? I was browsing through some photos the other day of our life before our daughters were born and it brought back many wonderful memories! I thought I would start a meme for all of us Mummy and Daddy’s so that we can remember the people we all were before our children were born. Sometimes I think we forget that as well as being a Mummy or Daddy we’re also ourselves. I’ve written a number of questions that I’ll be answering about what life was like before our daughters… [Read More]
