I’ve been sent across this article which has given me some wonderful tips on how to keep costs low whilst also getting your hands on freebies, which I know everyone loves a good freebie and wants to keep their household costs low.

Decorating My Child’s Room in Rented Housing

Decorating My Child’s Room in Rented Housing

I have mentioned before how the house we live in is rented and that we are unable to do much in terms of decorating and physically altering anything within the house, so we have to look to other alternatives. Which I’m sure many other families are in the same predicament too. I have a feeling we are going to be here for a little while longer, and as bear is getting older, I don’t really want him to have the gross magnolia walls. I’ve been looking at new ways to try and alter the decoration in his room without getting into any trouble with the landlord.

Mummy, Please Can We Go on the Choo Choo?

Mummy, Please Can We Go on the Choo Choo?

Lately, little bear has been paying a lot of attention to the modes of transport around him. His speech isn’t too great but he definitely points out ‘cars’, ‘plane’, ‘choo choo’ and ‘toot toot (boat)’. I’ve been loving seeing him explore the world around him in this way and explaining to him where they’re going/what they’re doing. So obviously, it has made me think about taking him on a train again (we went once on the train to Southport with our friends Lisa & her little lady and once to Manchester which he loved both times). I’ve decided we should go on a train somewhere else, I think he would absolutely love it.

How I’ve Been Relieving Stress Recently

If you didn’t know (which I’m sure the majority of people reading this won’t) I’ve had a pretty stressful time lately, it’s been emotional and all sorts of stressful and tough so I’ve been trying to spend each evening doing something that helps me relieve some of that stress. It’s also very quickly become a regular evening thing for me to take some time for myself.
