šŸ©· My beautiful familyā€¦

I love this photo, itā€™s not often we get a photo of the 4 of us. The children are growing up so quickly, itā€™s really important to me to capture these memories. Noah will be taller than me soon (I have heels on in this photo). 

This photo was taken the other weekend at my cousin-in-laws wedding. It was a wonderful day and the sun was shining. 

Have you enjoyed your half term with your familam so far?

We had a buffet breakfast at a local restaurant, š˜„š—®š—¹š—ø around Priory Marina and then back to my sister in laws for afternoon tea and bunny cuddles.ā£

I have officially completed the academic part of my š—±š—²š—“š—暝—²š—². I have to now wait until mid July to get results. Iā€™ve never been so nervous. But Iā€™m glad itā€™s done. I nearly gave up about 20 times over the last 5 months when we lost the pups šŸ¾ , but I kept goingā€¦ ā£
ā£
So, Iā€™ve now got half term to relax and enjoy some well earned time with my š˜§š˜¢š˜®š˜Ŗš˜­š˜¢š˜®.

Very proud of my little man cub todayā€¦ whose not so little anymore. He had 2 adult teeth extracted this morning, in preparation for a fixed brace fitting.

I knew what was coming to a certain extent but poor Noah didnā€™t. Thankfully the dentist knew the right tricks, he asked Noah to close his eyes so Noah couldnā€™t see the ghastly needle. šŸ˜± Mummy on the other hand nearly passed out!

Then watching the dentist do a tug of war with 2 of Noahā€™s teeth was horrifying too. The force to pull out a tooth is quite considerable. I hadnā€™t really thought about it before. But the crunching sounds were šŸ¤¢. 

He didnā€™t faint, albeit he nearly did and he hardly complained at all throughout the day. He is super brave and made me very proud.

Itā€™s horrible seeing your babies in pain. The worst part is Noah has to have 2 more teeth removed in a few weeks & heā€™ll know what is going to happen.šŸ˜±

Noah said heā€™s going to be poorly on that day! Haha!

A not so nice story but I tried to make it less gory for those that hate dentist or are just squeamish.

The busiest weekend. Ever! But worth it to see  their š—µš—®š—½š—½š˜† faces. Today was dance competitions and Islaā€™s team won šŸ„‡ Yeah! And as captain of the dance team, Isla got to collect the trophy. It was so awesome.ā£

Very proud Mumma alert. She throws herself into these š˜€š—¶š˜š˜‚š—®š˜š—¶š—¼š—»š˜€ and takes it on without a care in the world. The only way I can tell sheā€™s nervous is the adrenaline aftermath. She could not stop shaking afterwards. ā£
ā£
Needless to say, Islaā€™s head hit the pillow tonight & she fell straight to sleep. ā£
ā£
Anyone else have a busy weekend? ā£

A home renovation can be a wonderful experience or something you never want to do again. However, it mostly comes down to getting some of the basic first steps right before work begins.

You can only truly relax in your living room. So, I have put together some ideas to add finishing touches to your living room. VIEW the POST

4 Tips for living at home during a renovation

As you know we recently renovated our garage to make a quick office conversion and we have another renovation project starting in the new year. Home improvement projects are always something to look forward to, or at least, the finished product is something to look forward to. Before this, though, you may need to live on a building site for a while. It isnā€™t ideal, but it’s cheaper than booking a hotel for however long you need. So, how can you and your family survive this disruption? Here are four tips that I learnt for living at home during a renovation.

How to update your cloakroom on a DIY budget

How to update your cloakroom on a DIY budget

Yes I know a cloakroom is a polite way of saying the toilet room. When we moved into our first home, we knew there would be a lot of work to do as it had been occupied by an elderly couple and the interior was possibly over 30 years old. We did a lot of work in the bedrooms and main living spaces initially, our cloakroom was not so much a priority. So, I managed to update it and this is what I did to redecorate our cloakroom on a DIY budget. VIEW the POST
