Perfect for Halloween Collection of Party Ideas

For me, Halloween has to be my favourite event of the year. I just love dressing up; having parties; and getting together with family and friends. So this year I had a search online to see if I can make this year a little different because, well just because… Do I really need to have a […]

It’s happened! My daughter’s and my best friend left.

In the beginning. A long time ago and a very different me, went to collect my daughter from school and her teacher release my daughter and another girl to me. Her teacher had been convinced by the two of them that they were having a sleep over at my house that evening. I had never […]

My sincere apologies

I’ve had so many setbacks since my last post. Not with clearing up my house by blogging it.   I have however starting using the hashtag #clearingupmyhome on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook etc. Now I just have to find a way to include that into this site and I’ll be laughing.

Cleaning service

A friend, Carrie, needed money towards her holiday and as a joke I said I’d pay her to come and clean my house.  Well after a while it seemed to make sense. Trying to deep clean, decorate and have little helpers all in one day is quite a task.

What a day… So yes all these ‘baby’ items must go.

Besides it being Friday 13th. And I had to look after my friend’s children, so that was my two little girls plus another two little girls in my house and trust me when I say “loud” wasn’t the word. Could not hear myself think.
