My house is a mess and I don’t even care…

My inner ‘Monica’ is having a meltdown! (If you don’t get the Monica reference then I suggest that you just go away and reassess your life decisions) If you know me, you will know that I can’t stand mess and when there are dishes piling up in the sink or the laundry bag is almost

Just stop being a t**t

As I sat in my bedroom on Saturday night, the only room in which I can just about drown out the insidious din from next door, I was contemplating the many ways to murder the inconsiderate son of our neighbour. I was, however, struck with a realisation. I have tried to think about how worse

Home Safe Home

Your home doesn’t have to be Fort Knox, and in an ideal world we would all be able to leave our doors and windows wide open whenever we feel like it without worrying about the consequences. Unfortunately this isn’t an ideal world and burglars are opportunistic, if they see an easy way in they’ll take

What’s in your loft?

          Check out the Udu Drum!   You know when you’re interested in buying a house and you go to view it for the third time and you ask things like; “Is anything being left? The curtains etc?” “Will it be getting cleaned before we move in?” “What’s in the loft?” That

His room is done!

        We’re very slowly turning our house in to a home. When I say very slowly, I mean very slowly. We started decorating the troglodytes bedroom months ago. To be honest I severely underestimated the amount of effort and time that was needed to do this. I had planned to do it

And all that jazz!

Well, well, well… it’s been a busy couple of weeks. My poor little poorly baby was struck down with an evil ear infection, which resulted in both ear drums being perforated! (Ouch) Not content with that, he then fancied a quick trip to A&E after having an asthma attack! A full recovery has been made

Windows Update (Hahaha)

(We still need to remove the extractor fan…) We have new windows! I’m sorry that the update is a few days late…the actual fitting of said windows took a couple of days longer than promised. I also started my new job on Monday and today we had to have our gerbil of 3 years put

More windows…a few rodents and a grumpy teen!

  Here is my first video installment for our home improvements. I’ve never filmed myself before and it’s quite nerve wracking, although I’m not entirely sure why. Anyway, if anyone is interested here it it 🙂 P.s. We have 5 rats. 2 boys and 3 girls and 2 gerbils. Names: Brown Rat, White Rat, Gwen,

Home Improvements: Room(s) with a view ;)

    We are very lucky to have such beautiful views from our house. However as you can see from the first picture the windows sort of ruin that view! So the next endeavour will be just that! The windows..all of them, well you may as well jump straight in with both feet. Obviously we
