Giving The Girls Bedroom A Facelift With New Duvet Covers

We live in a two bedroom bungalow, we have one bedroom and our seven year twin girls share a bedroom. A perfect arrangement you would think. Well not quite! Our twin girls are total opposites when it comes to their tastes and interests. In fact I call them my Superhero and Princess because of their personalities and character being so different. So when it comes to their bedroom, it’s always very difficult to keep both the girls happy. Their bedroom usually ends being divided into two completely different themes. So here are a few ideas to give a kids bedroom… [Read More]

Going to the Park, Playing Board Games and hunting Easter Eggs: Entertaining Your Children

With half-term just gone and the Easter holidays on the way, it’s that time to think of ways to entertain and keep my seven-year old twin girls occupied and happy.

With that being said, I think that if we are going to make sure they are having a good time and enjoying themselves, I think it’s important that the activities we do with our… [Read More]

Protecting Your Property as Best Possible

The average person works eight hours a day, five days a week. There’s a reason for this. We want to provide ourselves and our loved ones with a good quality of life. We want a roof over our heads, we want to be comfortable and safe, and we want to surround ourselves with lovely things that bring joy to our lives. Unfortunately, the sad fact rings true that there are people out there who will happily and readily take or destroy our personal possessions given the first opportunity.

Year 2 Parents Evening Half Term Begins

Last week was the last week in school for my twin girls before half term. That also means that parents evening falls in that week. I’m not sure about everybody else, but I always find parents evening a daunting experience. I always feel like an adult that has gone back to school for twenty minutes. I’m not sure if it’s the small chairs and tables, and the fact that it is held in the school hall, but it always feels a very intimidating environment and then you sit in front of their teacher to hear how your children are getting… [Read More]

5 Simple DIY Ideas For Busy Dads

World Book Day In Wales #AD

World book day has come around very quickly, and this year on March 7th we will be celebrating world book day with a simple message #shareastory. It’s a simple message yet for me an important message in the fast paced technological world we live in where everything is condensed down to an Instagram page or some other form of social media. So showing our children that reading is a pleasure is really important. Growing up I always had a book on the go and there is no doubt that books can inspire you to achieve anything in life.
