Having the children share a bedroom is fine, but I like to make sure the bedding matches. If Isla has a particular style then Noah needs to have the same kind of style on his bed too. For example if Isla has a character, then Noah will have a character. I like things to look matching and our beds are the cosiest places, so it’s essential to get them looking perfect.
The toys in this house are everywhere. It’s the smallest ones that cause me the most problems though: Lego! We’ve all seen that doodle online where the Mum is stepping on Lego all the time. That’s our house. Noah is a typical boy, loves his Lego and Cars. Isla loves her dolls and soft toys. Keeping them all tidy is hard work, so I like to make life easy by having the right storage.

Due to the weather we changed our plans to go to the salon, me for my roots and Isla wanted a little purple colouring in her hair. So instead the obvious thing to do was have tea and cake. Isla really enjoyed her brownie and hot chocolate. She sat and ate it really quickly too, which says a lot. We then had a chilled out afternoon watching the snow fall. It hasn’t really settled here though.
Today is my Mumma’s birthday. We went round hers for takeaway pizza after work and got to celebrate Mumma’s day but also find out the name of the latest addition to the family. Harper’s new little brother is called Max. My little nephew has a name. Yippee.
These are Noah’s footy boots! Daddy was working late tonight, normally he would have all of this football malarky covered. I asked Noah to clean his own boots and he did. They were sparkly and shiny when he had finished. The only problem was they were also soaking wet inside. But he didn’t seem to mind. Maybe next time we will clean them a few days before he needs to wear them.
Today we went to see Grandma after school and the kiddies had a nice chilled out evening. Grandma makes them their favourite dinner, with little pots of ketchup and they love it. After our little visit we went back home so I could log on and work. I am trying a new more flexible working pattern to see if that helps out with the family/work life balance. It’s very tricky!
Spring is technically just around the corner now, but for many states across the country, it’s hard to tell as winter storms are still happening and the temperatures haven’t done much in terms of warming up. It’s about this time of year that most of us are pretty much done with winter and are looking for ways to warm up and get rid of the chill that settled in back in November. Perhaps you’ve been thinking about giving that sauna or steam room a try at your local health club, spa, or even at a friend’s house, but you’ve been holding back in fear of what it may do to your skin. It’s normal to have very dry sensitive skin at this time of year, so aggravating it isn’t high on the to-do list. So, are sauna and steam rooms good for your skin?
We made the most out of the light whilst Isla was at Rainbows. We took the dogs for a walk, well Noah took them for a run. We stopped by the beautiful daffodils. They are simply magical when they bloom. Isla then ran through the woods and made sure to stop and have a go at all the apparatus that is spread along the track. He loved it.
Mother’s Day is the time to celebrate your mother for all that she does and has done in the past. She is the woman who raised you, loved you, taught you, and, for many, a best friend no daughter can live without. The reasons why mothers deserve to be celebrated are unless, and finding a unique and sentimental way to show how much she means to you can be difficult and, for some, frustrating. Opting for a quick gift from the Mother’s Day section shouldn’t be your first move; instead, you should cater your efforts to your mother so that you can ensure the perfect Mother’s Day.
