Too Much

Some of you may have wondered where I’ve been. Many of you won’t have noticed and that’s fine too, it’s not like I stick to a specific timetable when I write. But I don’t like to leave work that I’ve started unfinished and recently I have.

As it stands at the moment I have a book review to get live, a book to finish reading and two I haven’t even started. That’s just the book reviews. I have a competition to launch. Two Halloween recipes to get scheduled. Four product reviews to deal with as well.

A Little Help from Tutorful

I have made no secret of the fact L struggles at school. He gets so upset and it’s starting to dawn on him the holidays will be ending soon, so that upset is coming to the forefront of his mind. He worries that he’s not good enough and he finds the work so hard, he’s even more worried about a new teacher and a new school year. It’s hard to watch and I don’t know how to help. So we turned to Tutorful.

Win a Safari Bedding Set from Bloomsbury Mill

There is one thing always guaranteed to bring a smile to my son’s face and that’s a giraffe. It’s hard to explain how excited he was to get his new Safari Bedding set from Bloomsbury Mill. 

We’ve struggled quite a bit around bedtime with him during this latest lockdown. He’s just not sleeping well at all and doesn’t want to be away from us, even if it’s only one room away.

Create a Festive Centrepiece with JR Decal

Since our extension was finished last year and we now have a dining table (whoop!) I have developed a love of a seasonal centerpiece. Autumn we had a vase filled with conkers and some candles. Halloween saw the addition of pumpkins, eyeballs and bats. Now I’m starting to think about Christmas with a little help from JR Decal.

The biggest Giraffe Gift

L loves a giraffe, it is his favourite animal of all time. His first toy as a baby was Gerry the Giraffe, Gerry was with in him hospital and has rarely left his side since, nursery, school, holidays, doctors appointments, haircuts, you name it Gerry has been by his side. Gerry is a shell of his former self, well loved barely covers it, but this is what started the giraffe obsession, an obsession that lead us to Icon Wall Stickers and the biggest giraffe gift yet.

Hotel Quality Bedding from The Towel Shop

We have recently finished extending our house and building the perfect space, we are now in the midst of finishing each room and making sure it is all lovely. The Towel Shop have been a great help.

Part of that has also been refreshing existing rooms. We have put some effort into making our conservatory a space to relax, rather than just be a dumping ground for the things we had no room for and we have given our master bedroom a refresh.
