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.Continue reading A Little Help from Tutorful

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.

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.Continue reading The biggest Giraffe Gift
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.Continue reading Hotel Quality Bedding from The Towel Shop

Fresh Blank Walls
Now that the building work is finished and the decorating is done we’re at the final stage of our build. Just flooring left and then actually moving into the rooms. Rooms with lovely, big, fresh, blank walls. Walls crying out to to be filled.
The spare room is going to be my room. A craft room, an office, a space for me to get on with my work and have some quiet. I have picked out some lovely blinds, painted the walls and know that I will be moving my hand painted bureau in.Continue reading Fresh Blank Walls
