Maxi's dream bedroom

Maxi has been in his current room since we moved into the house nearly seven years ago and is no longer a baby, so would love to update his bedroom.  Therefore, when I saw that  Laura Ashley and Tales of Annie Bean have set bloggers the chance of winning a room makeover me and him put our thinking cap on and sat down and designed his dream bedroom.

He wants a room that will grow up with him and is going to pass half of his bunkbed on to Mini and wants to keep his desk area too, but he would like to have his walls white and some new furniture which will last till he leaves home or longer. This is where Laura Ashley comes in, we really loved the look of the Brompton range including the the Brompton Oak Wardrobe the oak side table (which we would use as a bedside cabinet)  and the tall chest of drawers. They are classic and well made and would be perfect long term.  I am a great believer that if you have the bones of a room you can add and take away from accessories to make the change. 

He picked out all the colours himself and we have already bought the set of cable and cotton lights as a starting point.  He wants a bright multi colour theme for accessories and loves maps and all things travel too.

There isn't a lot wrong with his room at the moment, but it is dark and was put together on a shoestring and he would really like to put his own stamp on the room.

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop. 

Tissue paper poppy badges

Remembrance Sunday will soon be upon us and my boys take part in the annual church service and march as Beavers. This year MadDad will also be marching in his capacity as Manager of the U7's football team.  We are great believers in remembering what people have done for us and the boys have been busy making tissue paper poppies at Beavers.
