Upgrading Little Man’s Bed with Very | AD

*This is a paid post

Little Man had his bedroom decorated in October half term and since then we’ve been looking for a new bed for him. A grown up bed that can grow with him.

I had been working from home for a year and found my time pulled between the house, school and work and trying to cram everything into the hours that the children were at school just wasn’t possible.

Disclosure: We were sent the featured products for the purpose of this post however all opinions are my own.

We always have a list of jobs that need doing around the house and one that we have been meaning to tick off for such a long time was replacing two old radiators in the bedrooms. When we came back from Florida it felt so cold, and like autumn had really set in, that we booked someone to fit new radiators for us immediately.
