Pets - The Gallery 210

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Pets.

We don't have a lot of pets, I miss not having any as I grew up with loads, especially cats. I featured our guinea pigs away back in the The Gallery 155 so I thought I'd feature our little fish this time. The are tropical fish and are mainly black and white. We have five in total, but trying to get them all in the one place and stay still to take a picture, was almost as difficult as it was to get all three of my children to stay still in the one place to take the Christmas card picture. No easy task. Here are two of our fishes, Casper and Blackie.

Urban Living: Decorating Loft Conversions

 Loft Conversion

Finding Space 

Decorating and living in small spaces requires a lot of patience, creativity and planning. Everyone always likes to maximise the value of their property since there is limited accommodation space in urban cities. Most people expand the number of rooms in their home to accomplish this goal. As a result there have been a large number of loft conversions spreading across the UK.

Sneaky Car Salesman Tactics Used Only on Women


You would think in this day and age, sexism would be dead and buried. However, in the car sales industry it is still very much alive and kicking. Did you know that there are several sales tactics used by car salesmen on women only? If you’re a female looking for a brand new car, it may be worth becoming familiar with some of the sales methods used by many car dealers. The best way to shop securely is to engage with a reliable dealership such as www.jenningsmotorgroup.co.uk/.

Bring Back The Joy of Wrapping

Christmas Presents

Wrapping Christmas present used to be one of my favourite things to do in the run up to Christmas,  but since having children, especially three and who all have their birthdays within a month of Christmas, wrapping gets a bit tedious. I used to love to wrap my present with bows and ribbon and have them looking all fancy and special under the tree. I still do that with one or two, but I quickly learnt that children don't really care about bows and ribbon, it just added to time it took to get into the gift. Don't get me wrong, seeing your child's face light up, when they get the present they have been wishing for is the best thing ever. And so is the build up to the big day.

Being A Parent - The Gallery 209

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Being a Parent.

I had no idea what Being a Parent was before I had children. I'd never even changed a nappy until a few weeks before when I changed one of my teeny tiny twin nieces. It was scary and I was scared of babies. They look so fragile and breakable. Once I had Lucas in my arms, the love I felt was overwhelming and the need to protect this little guy was all I knew. This is the first time I knew what Being a Parent was all about. Love and protection, amongst a few other things.

Review - Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Klip Klop Palace

Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princes Klip Klop Palace
Last year we bought Aria the Fisher-Price Little People Disney Princess Castle for her first Christmas. She loves it and plays with it everyday. It still looks brand new and it is well played with. So when I heard about Fisher-Price Little People Disney Klip Klop Palace I knew she would love this and I was right. What's not to like, little Princess' with horses and horses that klip klop down ramps. It's fab, I love it, never mind Aria.

Yellow - The Gallery 208

This week's Gallery Prompt at from the lovely Tara over at Sticky Fingers is Yellow.

The first thing I thought of when I saw Tara's prompt was of Tyler's beautiful sunflower. He planted the seed at school just before Summer in a little tub and we watched it grow over the holidays on the windowsill counting the leaves each week. It grew bigger and bigger and one day I planted it in our garden. It kept growing, but we never saw any flowers. Then in September we got a lovely surprise. Not one, but a whole bunch of beautiful yellow flowers. He was so chuffed and my heart swelled to see how big this amazing plant has grown from a tiny little seed he planted.
