Making the house a home

We have been in our house almost two years now. Where has the time gone? OK, it's not our house, but it should be our home. We live in it, we pay the rent and bills, we clean it and the girls mess it up. It feels like home but then it doesn't. All our furniture from our previous houses is in it, but that's it. It has just been plonked in a spot as there is no where else to put it, rather then buying a piece for a set room. Our house should be one to be proud of.
It's larger then I ever expected to live in before I'm 30. It has two large reception rooms plus a kitchen diner, and a hallway as big as some front rooms. So why doesn't our home feel like a home? -One we can be proud of.

Our Christmas 2015

Wow... where has the time gone? Christmas came and went in a flash. Our Christmas is always busy as we visit my side of the family in the days before with the last day being our Christmas dinner on Christmas eve. The 220 mile long drive home usually sends the hyper excited girls off to sleep before we get home, and then Christmas day we spend with Daddy M's family. This year was no different apart from Grandma and Grandad M had now moved 120miles away to Cumbria.

Getting organised with Stigu

If you have noticed my blog has been VERY quiet recently you may be wondering why? I have been getting overwhelmed with everything I need to do and the blog has slipped. Going into 2016 I am challenging myself to be more organised as currently I am not at all.
I'm planning on using Stick to Stigu to help me. Stick to Stigu is a 130 page spiral bound weekly diary with a little twist from a new company that started up just a few months ago. It looks modern, quirky and good quality with thick paper ffo the pages rather then the thin pages you sometimes get.
