Grow Your Own Ingredients

Every family will spend a fortune on food throughout their life. What’s frustrating is that a lot of our money is spent on ingredients we buy over and over again. You spend money on a pack of tomatoes one week and need to get some again the next. Also, we can often buy things and not get good value for money as they go out of date. Again, vegetables and fruit are key culprits, as well as herbs. But, what if you started growing these things in your garden? You’ll end up with a colourful and vibrant space, and you can get all your essential ingredients for free! This is quite possible one of the best decisions you can make. It won’t matter if your tomatoes go mouldy as you didn’t pay for them and can grow more!

BooginHead Splatmat Review from Baby & More

I have to say I’m fed up with cleaning up the kitchen floor after baby girl has thrown her food everywhere. I never thought that you could buy something like the splatmat to put underneath the high chair. BooginHead have come up with this fantastic yet simple mat that measures a massive 52″ round. The splat mat has been a lifesaver for my kitchen floor in the new house I can tell you!

BooginHead Splatmat

The BooginHead splatmat comes folded up in this box which was easy to get out. I have to say as packed into the box the mat comes out with a lot of creases, that are not easy to smooth out. I’m guessing over time they will fade away the more it’s used. My Chicco high chair is a rather large high chair and the splatmat will fit comfortably underneath.

Oak Furniture Wish List For a New Home

Moving into a new home was a very special time for us. We finally had worked our socks off to afford a gorgeous 3 bed detached house with a rather large garden. Much better than the 3 storey town house built into a hill we moved from. Anyway we love proper wood furniture, the sturdy robust type that will last forever and worth spending those extra pennies on.

I love a blank room to plan from, this is what one end of the living room looked like before the movers arrived. It doesn’t look like that now of course – it’s missing baby girl’s toys! But you have an idea of the space.
