Day 31 – Oscar

Oscar Sleeps

I am so in love with our little boy it’s hard to even put into words. ❤ But sometimes.. I love him even more when he sleeps 😛 (aka mama can sleep or FB as much as possible in that time and not have to worry about piddle alert)

Day 30 – Microchip

Battersea Dogs & Cats HomeToday we went to the Battersea Dogs & Cats home in London with the hubs to get our wee little pup microchipped! It was his first outing and trip on the tube and he did SO well! The vets loved him as well and so did the tube onlookers 🙂 Oh and as a side note; anyone who wants to get their pet microchipped head over to Battersea, because you can have it done there for free and save £30! As of 2016 its going to be a legal requirement to have your dog microchipped so might as well get it while its still free 🙂 Vets usually charge from £25-£40 for the service. We also purchased a few items from the Battersea shop to support their great causes! Heck, why not! We just saves ourselves £30 😛 

Day 28 – Chocolate

Chocolate

Cho-co-late! CHO-CO-LATE! Yes, I have officially come to that point where I apparently need about 3 litres of Chocolate a day to keep me going. I didn’t think going up and down 3 flights of stairs 68 times a day was going to be this calorie burning, but apparently it is! Also, it’s chocolate.. do I really neeeed an excuse? 😀

Day 24 – Wine

Red Wine

When shit hits the fan… wine magically becomes your best friend. Today has been somewhat distressing to say the least and I’m still ill, but I’m taking comfort in my home made Thai Green Curry and a lovely glass of Vino Tinto. Please let me rise again like the lady on TV at the moment (Erin Brockovich). 

2 Piece Laundry/Storage Set – Handy and crafty!

I thought as I’ve been sitting at home sneezing and coughing away and finally had enough energy to make myself some mushroom, rice, and chicken soup that I would sit down and update my blog as well.

I personally hate seeing laundry. It’s just gross. I mean who wants to sit in any room and have to stare at used undies or smelly socks? So when it comes to laundry I always think “out of sight, out of mind” is the way to go. I spent ages looking for a laundry set that would look nice, be in a budget, tie in with our bamboo/natural wood theme, and as usual serve another function than just a laundry bin. I finally found one on ACHICA, yet again! They had a brilliant sale on and I got the set for less than £50! The set comes in a D-shape, so a half circle basically. I really liked this as I could easily push it up against the wall and make the space seem a bit larger. Not only that, but it has a comfy lil cushion top, which means it can also act as an occasional seat for surprise guests or parties. Actually, to be honest, I used both pieces as seats on my birthday a few months ago! Worked brilliantly!

I decided to use the larger “basket” as the actual laundry basket that we now use in the bathroom. It’s also nice because after a long bath you can have a comfy seat on it afterwards and your *ahem* bits don’t have to suffer the cold of the toilet seat. Not to mention it hides all the laundry as well 😀 The smaller piece of the set I decided to use in our entrance hallway as a small storage stool as well as a stool to sit on while you put on your shoes. It now houses a lot of random bits and bobs and things we want when we go out and quickly need them e.g. our umbrella, our picnic bits, etc.

You can find cheaper versions made in wicker or sea grass, but I just personally like bamboo more and thought I might as well spend the extra £5-10 on something I like looking at, but it’s of course completely up to you! Do bare in mind though that those versions tend to not withstand weight a lot and can’t be used as seats..

Premier Housewares Laundry Bin Round Set

If you want to check out the Premier Range then head over to ACHICA, Wayfair, eBay, or then Variety as they seem to be selling them as well. The range comes in the D-Shape, Round, or Rectangular. If you want something more wooden then check out Ikea, they have a storage unit a tad similar and you can always buy a cushion for the top if you want! I’m now going to make myself yet another Lemsip as my head is not my best friend at the moment 😦 Stay healthy y’all!
