There is a large section of our supermarket shelves dedicated to anti-odour products. That's because we all want the same thing, a beautiful smelling home. Whether its pet odours, cigarette smoke, or just the lingering scent of last nights takeaway, we want to find ways to make our home smell more inviting.
If you’re on Pinterest as much as I am, you’ll have seen all of the beautiful coffee table decoration ideas, and like me, you have probably thought ‘ya, right’ because you know it wouldn’t last five minutes in your house!!
There aren’t too many people in the world who don’t like candles, right?! We all have them in our homes, from small tea lights to large pillar candles. But how many of us actually think carefully about where to put them in our home?
I have tried to pass on my love of reading to our kids but in an age of screens it can be challenging to convince them of the joy of books. Here are a few ideas you can try to make books as accessible as possible, to both adults and children, to hopefully encourage more reading and more learning.
On the 14th of March 2020 we woke up to a very different World. Kids were no longer going to school. Pubs, restaurants and many other businesses were closed. The only time we were allowed to leave our houses was for work, to buy groceries, or, to exercise within 2km of our home.
Well, 2021 has arrived and there does seem to be some tentative light at the end of this obstacle course. It has been challenging, for sure, but I have chosen not to write of the past year, but rather to grow and learn from it.
My partner and I are opposites…in everything!! He loves socialising, I would rather sit in and read a book. He would stay up until dawn, I’m in bed soon after our kids! And when it comes to music…well, he’s a metalhead, enough said!
In today’s world, we wear being busy as a badge of honour. When asked how you’re doing, the chances are your response is usually along the lines of ‘Not bad, busy as always!’. It would feel pretentious to say ‘Well actually I have been pampering myself all morning and now I feel wonderful!’.
