We’re not beginners when it comes to hiding tv cables… We’ve done it a number of times and even in our last house we had sonos and ceiling speakers, which we were lucky enough to wire as it was being built. However, we may have uttered a bad word when we attempted to hide the tv cables downstairs in our current house, only to discover we have insulation boards packed right up against the plaster board. This instantly meant our trusty wire coat hanger method was not going to work on this occasion.Continue reading
As the return to school creeps back in, it’s time to pack away those free times and sharpen the organisational skills… We all know that when school returns, so do the clubs, lessons and playdates. This makes it very difficult to squeeze in homework. Depending on your after school commitments, there might only be 1 or 2 nights free to fit it in, so it’s important to have a space away from the daily hustle and bustle where they can sharpen their little minds.Continue reading
If you’ve followed by blog since the start, you’ll know that a bit of a past time for me is making up little printables and various bits and pieces. I vowed to share these with you regularly and I’ve got some catching up to do! I’ve done a meal planner in the past, which is still available to download here if you want a more colourful option.

Ok, so there may only be 2 weeks of the summer holidays left in Scotland, but I set myself a challenge of finishing our living room and I’m holding myself to it (even if it does mean cheating a little a borrowing the English holiday to qualify it!). This is the last room in our house to be tackled (I won’t say ‘finish’, as you know by now how I feel with regards to every other room only being 95% there!). This room has served us well since we moved in 3 years ago. It has been our storage room for our kitchen, new sofas and we even used a corner of it as a sitting area when the kitchen got knocked through into the dining room to make a large open plan family room. But it’s time to throw open the curtains, clear the clutter and get this space complete (or at least 95% of it!).Continue reading

Each month we do a feature of a Blogger room.. Whether it’s a recent make over or just a gorgeous space and this month we have a rather stunning rustic country room from Neve (We The Parents). I’m sure you’ll agree it is a glorious space and has given me a few ideas about using greenery as finishing touches to our own kitchen…Continue reading
