Changing Rooms

We are having a bit of a change around upstairs at the moment. We have put our two Children into a bedroom together (with the aim of keeping them close). Which means the small bedroom is now spare, with an intention of turning it into a study. However we are getting a new bed delivered next week so its been very handy to have the spare room as we have put our bed in there and emptied our room to fully decorate.

I actually quite like our bed in the little bedroom and think we may leave it in there over Christmas for when my Sister visits, then who knows after Christmas!

Magazine addict!

Everybody has a vice, for some its smoking, drinking, chocolate, bags, shoes? But for me its buying home magazines!! I can't get enough of them, I get so excited at the beginning of the month and the shelves are full of new magazines - sad I know! But with two small Children I don't get a lot of 'me' time so when I do, I like to spend it with a magazine, a cuppa and a biscuit or two.

My absolute favourite is 'Ideal Home' and I buy this religiously every month!

Turning the garden shed into a Playhouse ~ Part 2

The Playhouse was a huge hit with the Kids over the Summer! See here for part 1 of turning our ordinary garden shed into a playhouse for the Children.

The playhouse has been locked up now for the winter and filled with all the large garden toys so I can't show you the inside, but here is the outside looking lovely in the Autumn sun:

The run up to Christmas

Good morning, another glorious crisp sunny day here today! Perfect day for a long family walk but there is housework to be done so hopefully it will stay dry for the weekend!! The school run will have to suffice :)

I absolutely love this time of year, the decorations are up in town, the Christmas adverts on (John Lewis...enough said!!) and that excited feeling in my stomach! My Son's pre-school are starting to prepare for the Nativity, we asked him what he was going to be...a king...a shepherd? No he said, Superman!! Of course!!

My Daughters Knitted Patchwork Blanket ~ Part 2

Hello there, my Daughters blanket is finally complete, just in time for this cold weather too!!

See here for Part 1 of the blanket.

One of the lovely ladies at our 'Knit & Stitch' group showed me how to do a crochet edge and I love it, it really finishes it off. I enjoyed the crochet much more than the knitting so might have to give it another go. I am going to do the same to my Son's blanket too, I was worried it would be too girly but I kept it quite simple so think it will be fine - will show you a pic when I get round to it :)

Here is the finished blanket:
