I would like to start this post by stating that I’m not the best of gardeners or even the most successful, however I do like to have nice plants and flowers to look at during the summer months. However due to the fact that we have a shared garden I’m not able to have a full garden full of plants and flowers in the soil … Continue reading Watering Your Garden Whilst On Holiday!
We all know that exercise in general is good for us and it’s probably also true that everyone has a particular type of exercise that they prefer over the others, for me that’s cycling. I just love cycling and although I haven’t done it for a few years it is certainly something that I would take up again if I had the free time to … Continue reading Why I Love Cycling!
By the end of today we would have been through three major election days… Continue reading Election Day!
I’ve been a Stay at home Dad for a while now and when I first decided to do this, apart from the obvious reason of the amount of appointment Leo was going to have, I was looking forward to spending more time with my children and also doing things with them like going to the park etc, I was also looking forward to spending more … Continue reading An Unfortunate Side Effect of Becoming a Stay at Home Dad!
I’ve been a Stay At Home Dad for just over four weeks now and in that time I’ve seen various posts on what a Dad puts in the Baby Bag or as some call it the Man Bag!

Well the easy bit was the brushes, however when it came to what … Continue reading DIY Project: Refurbishing A Kids Garden Bench.
Our last post was way back in June and since then all we’ve really done is post pictures to our Twitter and Instragram accounts. There is no reason for this beyond the want to spend more time with the family and enjoy summer, and it was a nice summer as for us as well. So what have we been doing in the 2 Bottles of … Continue reading Back from a Break.
Ever since we found out we were pregnant with Leo I have been googling space saving bunk beds. All the ones I did like were well out of our budget until we visited my brother. My nephew has the Kura bed from IKEA and my brother had placed a double mattress underneath while we were there for somewhere for us to sleep. It got … Continue reading Decorating Your Children’s Bedroom Part Two: Converting a Kura Bed
Just Before Leo was born we decided to swap bedrooms and ever since decorating has been on our list of to-dos. We have slowly started gathering ideas together and buying a few bits. So over the coming weeks we will start decorating. We will be doing it in stages due to funds and will be updating you as and when we do bits. We … Continue reading Decorating Your Children’s Room Part One
Mumble Jumble Idea: This is a great Fathers Day idea for babies to give to their Dads. Richards first Fathers Day was when Oliver was only a few months old so he obviously couldn’t do much “craft”, so we kept it simple and just did a footprint and I got a few pictures to make up this simple, cheap but personal present. What’s needed: Images of family Frame … Continue reading Fathers Day Frame!
