The Importance of Home and Garden Security

We are all aware of how important it is to keep our homes safe. We take good care of our belongings whilst out and about and the prospect of our homes burgled is abhorrent.

Logo Design Made Easy with Logojoy – Review

When I first started my blog several years ago, there were two things that I struggled with. One, the name of the blog and secondly the logo.

My Home Improvement’s Wish List

It is only when the colder months creep up on us that I am aware of our home. The mess, the furniture and soft furnishings and the general lack of snuggly comfy things. There are quite a lot of home improvements I would like to do. Firstly and most importantly is our bedroom. We have lived here a while now and it is the one room that hasn’t yet been decorated. One of the reasons being we can’t decide on a colour. We have talked about built-in furniture as It would give us more space, I am not sure about it as of yet. What I do want is some cosy bedding, new curtains and other furnishings. I have always fancied… View Post
