5 Stylish Bunk Bed Ideas for Maximising Space in Style

A lot of houses have smaller bedrooms and putting two beds in the same room isn’t always feasible. Particularly for children as it leaves no space to play. Bunk Beds are normally the only way of maximising space. When I was younger I used to love going to my Aunties house because my brother and I used to get to sleep in a bunk bed. I thought this was so much fun. Now as an adult I see that a bunk bed is the perfect way to sleep more than one child in a bedroom. I have spoken to a couple of fellow bloggers that have bunk bed’s. They have spoken to me about how bunk beds are important to save space. Lynne from A Day In The Life Of A Mum of 6 told me that she has 6 children in a 4 bedroom house. She said ‘ My girls are… View Post

Learning with Education Quizzes – Review

With the summer school holidays coming to a close. I am aware that it has been a long time since E has done any school work. It is easy for children to forget everything they have been taught over the last year. Because of this, is it sometimes important to have a quick recap over the work from the last year. Education Quizzes is a great website for practicing and learning. After being told about Education Quizzes I was keen to get E to have a go at some of the quizzes. E loves learning for which we are lucky. She is a bright young girl who does well at school, however we know she struggles with her maths. So I thought I would let her have a go at some of the KS1 maths quizzes for pupils. There are at least 100 different maths quizzes covering different topics. The quizzes… View Post

Technology Isn’t Always A Good Thing

Technology is everywhere we look. Computers, tablets, phones, game consoles and television. Whilst technology comes with many advantages, there are also occasions when it isn’t a good thing. When I was a kid the only options for writing were pen and paper and type writers. Game Consoles were starting to appear. I loved my ZX Spectrum, despite it taking half an hour to load a game. Paper boy was a firm favourite. To see friends it was a case of knocking on a door or phoning them from the land line.  Now I never write letters with pen and paper and I don’t phone people that often. I text rather than call most of the time and I spend a lot of time in front of one device or another. I do my banking and shopping online and keep up to date with friends on facebook. All of this is very… View Post

Staycation Ideas for Families

Just to be completely honest, I have to say that I DREAM of going on holiday. The idea of only spending fun, quality, stress-free (OK, almost stress-free) time with my family in the sunshine some where is so tempting. When it comes to going on holiday, I am NOT a home-girl. I love to travel and see and experience new things, but sometimes our finances or other things prevent us from going away.. That’s where staycations (a holiday at home) come into play. It is definitely possible to make a staycation work. Your family can have fun, unwind and enjoy many of the things you enjoy on a planned out of city/state vacation. It just takes a little bit more forethought and creativity — but it sure does save a pretty penny or two! In order to make a staycation feel like a real vacation, discuss with your family some… View Post

My 5 Favourite Things

I wouldn’t say I was a nosey person but I do like reading about other people’s lives. Just as people read my blog. The lovely Jen who writes a blog called Just Average Jen tagged and challenged me to write about my 5 favourite things. Originally I thought this would be really easy, but it turns out it really isn’t. The obvious favourite things, well people in the world are my family and friends. Today however I am going to write about actual items I own that I love. My Camera Several years ago a good friend of mine bought himself a new camera so I acquired his old one. From that point on I became in love with photography. Several years later I upgraded to a new DSLR. I am not a very good photographer but that is because I need to learn how to use my camera properly. Since I updated my camera I… View Post
