Choosing wallpaper for a child’s bedroom

Years ago when the girls were little, we made the decision to put them in the same bedroom so I could have the spare room as my office. At the time I needed it. Working from home with children as young as they were, I had to have a dedicated space. As time passed, the girls learned to love sharing. They’d play together, chat as they were falling asleep and enjoy each other’s company. There was one problem though. Libby doesn’t need as much sleep as Lia. This came to a head a few days ago when Lia asked if…

Finding time for home improvements

Sixteen years ago, on my 23rd birthday, I moved into my own home. Never being one to do things by halves, it was a pretty busy day. I took the day off work for a job interview. When the interview finished, I collected the keys for my new house. Having filled up the car with everything I owned from my mum’s, I drove to my new place and emptied the car. All my worldly possessions piled up in a small corner of the bedroom. The phone rang, I’d got the job. I immediately quit my old job and in the…
