Cleaning my mirrored furniture with the Daewoo Window Vac 12W Cordless Window Vacuum Cleaner

We’ve got mirrored furniture. Not our best idea. When we first bought it I wanted it to give our room lots more space, and a lighter and airier feel. This worked out really well and I never regretted our choice. Until we had Daisy of course. Now the mirrored furniture in our bedroom is frequently covered with tiny fingerprints, mysterious splatters and other assorted toddler mess. I do still enjoy having the mirrored furniture, as it is so handy for looking around the room at night, checking on Daisy, making the room feel more spacious and improving the light too. Recently I was sent the Daewoo Window Vac 12W Cordless Window Vacuum Cleaner to review and I want to let you know my thoughts on it!

Our 2018 Bucket List – Hoping for a fun year again this year!

2016 was a rough year for us, so I decided to work to ensure that 2017 was better. It paid off and we have had a lovely year! We created a 2017 bucket list and it was our first ever bucket list together. Someone sent me a rude message last year, to let me know that the term ‘bucket list’ should only be used by people on their deathbed. I deleted it, as I’ve no time for negativity, or being told what to do and decided to start writing one every year. Anyone of us could die at any time, and life is too short to spend all of your time thinking ‘one day’ to things that you want to do. By creating our 2018 bucket list we are going to have lots of fun activities to look forward to. Anyway, here is a look at our 2018 bucket list!

Our 2017 bucket list – a final look at what we achieved!

Well another year seems to have flown by! Every month I cannot believe another month has passed by and every year I really do feel the same. Life seems to zip by in a myriad of errands! We have had a fantastic year and I’m really happy looking back on our 2017 bucket list. While we have not achieved all of our wishes for 2017 there have been good reasons for some of the failures. Others not so much..! Anyway, here is a final look at our 2017 bucket list!

As you can see from our final look at our 2017 bucket list – we achieved 15/25 items. Not too bad! Especially as this was our first full year as parents and my first year working as a parent too!

How I’m saving time and money with my Beko washing machine

Household chores are something that I actually find fairly enjoyable. Mostly. I know this is a bit unusual, to find chores enjoyable, but I always feel proud when my home is clean and organised. I regularly run through my 30 day declutter challenge and do what I can to keep our home clutter-free. Having appliances and products that make life easier, quicker or better is what I love. Today I want to talk to you about how I’m saving time with my new Beko washing machine.

Prepping my Christmas dinner table thanks to Homesense

Christmas is almost upon us – hooray! I’m really excited for Christmas 2017! We are going to be waking up in our home, opening presents, and then heading off to visit my in-laws, my husband’s parents and sisters. I’m really excited to see my niece Matilda and to open presents together. Also, once we have spent the morning together we will be picking my own Mum up on our way home. Our plan is to enjoy Christmas Dinner together, then my husband has to go to work for 6pm and my Mum will be staying overnight. I’m really excited for a real family Christmas and seeing all the people that mean lots to us.
