I Love Our Home Comforts
Theres nothing quite like snuggling up on the sofa under a soft, fluffy blanket for comfort in the winter time. We have numerous blankets and throws spread around the house most of which are of the soft, fluffy variety as our kids like to keep warm during the early mornings and of an evening when they winding down for bedtime.
I especially like to be sure that there is plenty of comfort spread around the house over the Christmas period, simple accessories such as pretty twinkly lights, festive scented candles and of course soft, fluffy blankets can make all the difference in bringing Christmas into the home.…
Geek From The Get Go
My son will happily admit that he is a computer geek. Whilst we try our hardest to limit his ‘tech time’ his mind still stays firmly in the game hours later.
Mario is one of J’s favourite games to play whether it’s Mario Kart or Super Mario he is happy as Larry playing along with Mario and Luigi.
Poor J was nicknamed Yoshi from an early age as it is so close to his own name. Four years later when E came along we couldn’t help but to dub her as ‘Princess Peach’. Mario is certainly a family favourite and as so the kids have a fair amount of merchandise.…
Our little lady E is quite simply mad about rabbits! As most of my friends, family and possibly readers already know, E was given a soft, fluffy, pink rabbit when she was first-born. The rabbit has since been dubbed as ‘Ninny’ and has become her lifelong friend which she insists on carrying about absolutely everywhere.
We actually have three ‘Ninny’ bunnies so that we are able to rotate the rabbits should they require washing or god forbid ever get lost. E is totally rabbit mad, she adores bunnies and would be quite happy to spend all day watching, reading or playing with rabbit related paraphernalia.…
My husband Paul is a keen artist, he uses a range of media to create cartoons which are based on our children. Paul is hugely talented in the Arts and can often be found sat sketching, colouring or tweaking images on his laptop.
Paul has sketch books full of ideas which he begins in pencil, he then moves on to using fine line pens and later transfers his work over to his laptop to colour, shade and add further details to.
It’s a fairly long process but he seems to really enjoy bringing the kids to life in comic format. You can take a peek at the full catalogue of Paul’s work over at his website at www.shorttoons.com…
Why I Need Wipe Easy Table Cloths
Having two children, I am fairly accustomed to dealing with the odd mess here and there. This is certainly the case when it comes to feeding my kids. There isn’t a single meal time which goes by without me having to wipe the table from crumbs, spillages and smears of random condiments.
Since having children I have always used a tablecloth to protect and cover the table as well as to add a splash of colour into our kitchen. I tend to stick to using an oilcloth tablecloth as it can be wiped clean easily.…
