Get the Children Involved in Decorating with Dulux #KidsBedroom

Dulux recently partnered with Child Developmental Psychologist Dr. Sam Wass, who I recognised immediately from the Secret Lives of 4, 5 and 6 year olds. Together, they looked into the benefits of involving your children in the decorating process, and found that decorating their bedroom is more important to children than other summer activities like watching their first football match, or riding a bike.

Planning Permission – Granted!

Well, we have had some amazing news – planning permission has been granted for our extension! I can’t tell you how happy this makes me. We started planning an extension at the start of the year and had plans drawn up a few months ago but applying for planning permission and waiting for a decision seems to take forever. Now that we are able to move forward and actually start…

We then had the hallway decorated, along with our lounge and Little Man’s bedroom before finishing last year with our bathroom renovation. As…

Finishing off our Bathroom

A few months ago we had our bathroom renovated and like most people we had little jobs that needed finishing off – that inevitably take months to get around to doing. The bathroom ceiling needed painting but before we could paint it we had to also get new lights as the old ones were white plastic down lights that had been covered in paint the last time we’d painted the…

The Perfect Table Setting from Habitat #HostWithHabitat

One of our plans for this year is to start the ball rolling on our extension. This will open up the whole of our downstairs living space and will give us a really good sized open plan kitchen and dining room. It’s something that has been in planning for a couple of years but in the next couple of months we should have the plans drawn up ready to move…
