Now that we’re coming into the cold and dark period things get a little tougher in many ways. The kids are not able to play outside as much, we are more likely to get depressed and bored, putting on weight as we’re not active enough. Winter can be a bit of a drag. So when we consider that it’s also the time of year when home repairs are most common and costly then it fast becomes some peoples least favourite season. But if we know what we are doing we can prepare and react quickly to the trials of winter when it comes to homeownership. Follow these essential home maintenance hints and tips to get the best out of your home during the coldest of all the seasons.
Today’s keyword for the #mummyphotoaday photo challenge, February day 15, is “together”. We had a night without the kiddies last night. First time in months. Possibly years. It felt completely bizarre waking up without them today. It’s funny how you desperately yearn for a break, just to sit and drink your tea whilst it’s hot (without the kids bickering around your feet). But once you get it, it just doesn’t feel right not being #together. I love this crazy faced boy. He’s really starting to grow up and challenge behaviours now. Albeit he doesn’t question his own. I have to make sure he stops bullying his sister, keep the tantrums to a minimum but maintain his happy and loving personality. Hmmmmmm…. how do I do that?! #mummyphotoaday
