How to create the perfect kitchen

Making any change to your home, requires a lot of thought and research. That’s why when looking to create the perfect kitchen there are a number of different steps you should take. Firstly, look at your existing kitchen. Are you looking to completely remove it and put a new kitchen in, or make some small, simple changes such as changing the cupboard doors and perhaps repainting? Look at the way in which you use your kitchen space. Do you use the worktops much? Would you benefit from having more cupboard space, or perhaps more os less worktops would be best… [Read More]

How to pick the perfect family car

Buying a new family car can be a stressful task. Unlike when you’re buying a car for your own usage, there’s a number of different things to consider when you’re buying something for the whole family.

The Perfect Winter Treat

This post is an entry into the Co-operative Electrical Competition. For the past few months in the run up to winter, I had heard a lot of people talking about slow cookers.  I know they’re used commonly in countries such as India, but I didn’t have a clue what a slow cooker was! After looking online and finding out what they were, I went out and bought myself one and I haven’t looked back since. The thing I love the most about using a slow cooker is that you can prepare most of your dish the night before and then… [Read More]

The Perfect Age to Have Children

Skinny me inspiration!

Ever since I can remember I have always known that I wanted to have children. The thought of becoming a mum and having one or two children has always been something that has appealed to me. When I was a teenager I was a bit of a worrier. I would worry about silly things like how much my pension would be when I retire or how I would be able to afford my own home. One of the biggest things that I worried about was when I would have children. Life seemed to be passing me by and I worried… [Read More]

The Perfect Family

My mum with her mum I don’t know if it’s just me reaching a certain point in my life or if it’s just me being too sentimental, thoughtful, sensitive even, but I have found myself doing a lot of thinking lately. Actually, I’m not even sure if ‘thinking’ is the correct word to use. Reflection? Pondering? Who knows? Life isn’t perfect, yet, I feel I have grown up in a perfect world. A bubble if you like. Yes, a big, fat, cushiony, soft, padded bubble. Does that even make sense? Am I babbling too much? Probably, but I need to… [Read More]

The Competitive Mum

We’ve all met them. They go on about how they only breast feed their child and wouldn’t dare let an ounce of formula pass their little ones lips. They tell you how perfect their child is and how they go down on their own in their cot at night and then they don’t hear a peep out of them until they go in to wake them at 9am the next morning.  They have tales of how well behaved their child is and how they never ever cry and even though they’re only 17 weeks old they can already recite the… [Read More]
