Why a KeySafe will make your life easier [Giveaway]

 A Keysafe is something that you never really you need until you get one. Especially when your husband is as forgetful as mine is, often forgetting his keys or losing them all together. This once resulted in him breaking the glass in our front door (at the time it was an old style one that wasn’t double glazed, thankfully!)  to…

4 reasons you might need hourly car insurance

There are a few reasons why hourly car insurance could come in really handy, we’ve had to use it a few times in the past and you’ll find the rates for hourly car insurance are surprisingly affordable! We had to buy a new (to us) car earlier this month because our main family car decided that second gear wasn’t happening. After…

Travel: Where to visit with the Ambassador Cruise Line

This is a collaborative post. I think that now, more than ever most of us are suffering from wanderlust in one form or another. We’ve not been travelling as much as usual, and can’t even book a last minute getaway because who knows which countries will be available to travel to under current regulations. However everything is looking like next…

Gift Idea: News of the Decade Book

Sam loves history, we both do actually, but I often try and find him gifts that are not only a little bit different or unusual but that are also useful past the initial ‘oh that’s a nice present’ stage! This year for Father’s Day he was the recipient of a Historic Newspapers hardback News of the Decade book for the…

Review: Night Owl Coverless Duvet

The one room that we really haven’t much to since we moved in is our bedroom.  This is for a few reasons and the first is that I just can’t decide what to do décor wise! The second is that we’re using the room to store various other bits and bobs that don’t have a home yet so it isn’t…

Ways to Future Proof your Home

This may seem daft seeing as we have JUST moved into our new home, but we’re already thinking of the best ways to improve it that will add value. Of course some of the improvements are things that we plan to do in the next few months, and will help improve our homes energy efficiency as well as our comfort.…

At Home Allergy Testing

Ad – this article was written by me in partnership with a brand. Allergies are worrying aren’t they?  Especially as a parent as you won’t know your child is allergic to something until they have a reaction, which will be sudden, scary for you and frightening for them. Adults can develop allergies too, even to things they have had no…

3 home improvements we’re making to improve our energy rating

This is a collaborative post written by me, in partnership with a brand/company. We moved in to our new house at the end of April and although it doesn’t have a terrible energy rating it could be better. Currently the energy rating is D but we would like to get it to C, at least. Being a terraced house built…

Scrapbook Loves April & May 21

I can’t work out if the past two months have dragged or flown by, feels like a bit of both! My last blog post was before we moved house, and I continued to have a break from everything, more or less till we were a bit more up to date with things like unpacking, settling in at new school and…

Scrapbook Loves Feb & March 2021

It’s another two-month favourites post from me. Life is so hectic at the moment that my blog has taken a back seat whilst we sort the move, work and moving schools, plus kids learning at home and then the Easter holidays. Anyway, here we are, a little run down of what I’ve been loving recently. What I read in February…

Jewellery with Meaning from Muru London.

Items featured were gifted in exchange for a review.   When I was little one of my favourite activities was going through my Mum’s jewellery boxes. There was something so exciting about seeing what was hiding inside and hearing the story behind each piece. I loved trying things on, touching the shapes and gems, and then carefully replacing each ring or…

Work from Home – Finding the Ideal Space

This is a collaborative post. As we’re finally moving into our new house next month I’ve been thinking a lot about how to make the best use of our space to meet all our individual needs. Currently we’re in a flat and although we are lucky enough to have two reception rooms so that we can have a desk set…
