Making our family home – Isla’s bedroom makeover

Making our family home – Isla’s bedroom makeover

As you know we moved into our new home back in January and it has been a very busy time making our family home. We finally, thankfully, managed to get the children’s bedrooms carpeted over bank holiday weekend and this kicked off a trail of events. Once the carpet was complete, we could build Isla’s new furniture and make her bedroom just right. I absolutely love her bedroom; it would have been a dream bedroom for me growing up. Isla is 7 tomorrow and what a perfect time to finish off her beautiful space.  VIEW the POST

Week 2 of making our home

Week 2 of making our home has been awful. Completely tiring and stressful.

Making moving house a little bit easier with removals

Making moving house a little bit easier with removals

We are in the process of looking for our first family home, to buy and it is really hard work. They are either too small, wrong layout, bedrooms all on different floors or the garden is tiny. I feel like we are being incredibly fussy, but I want to get this right. We do not have the cash to move after we have got our mortgage. Who does? It's made me think about things for when we do move, that will make it less stressful like: removals, storage, decorating, cleaning and getting family to help us out. We have moved house 4 times in the past 10 years, so you would think I am a pro at this moving malarkey. VIEW the POST
