Our Dream Garden

A garden fir for boys

If we had a wish for our garden,
It would be for it to be suitable come rain or shine,
to keep both boys active,
without the need for the day to be fine.

If we had a wish for our garden,
an InTerra  trampoline would be ace,
how much fun could be had,
to it we would all race.

If we had a wish for our garden,
we would love a multi functional swing,
Perhaps even an outdoor punchbag,
and we would sing as we swing!

If we had a wish for our garden,
a place for ball play would be on it
Football, basketball.
All sorts of balls to keep the boys fit

If we had a wish for our garden,
It would be one that our family could relish,
one that truly was an outdoor room,
a place we could truly cherish.

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.
