B-Sensible 2 in 1 Fitted Sheets

If you have children, you will completely understand the rigmarole of having to change your child’s bedding in the middle of the night if they’ve been ill or had an accident. The actual changing of the sheets isn’t too bad in itself but if the mess has seeped through onto the mattress or pillows, it can be a real pain. Recently my two were both ill in the night. Poor Benjamin was sick about 6 times during the night and {Read More}

Transition from cot to bed

Transitioning your little one into a big boy or big girl room can be traumatic and upsetting for them (and you!).

Keeping the house tidy with kids!

As a busy parent who works part time, I’m always on the lookout for products that make cleaning up and tidying the house quick and effortless. I never seem to quite manage to keep on top of the house work; washing always needs doing, I hoover almost constantly and there’s always something on the floor, whether it be toys, slippers, socks, a sippy cup. No matter how much I pick up during the day, it never stays tidy for long. {Read More}

Switch Art – Magnetic Frames and Prints

I love my photos but I also love changing them as the children grow. I can’t remember how many ‘favourite pictures’ I have had over the past three years, but it’s more than I’ve got room for, that’s for sure. When I can across Switch Art, I was really intrigued.
