Happy New Year! 

This blog unfortunately went on the back burner last year, however I'm hoping to be sharing more on here during 2022. 

At the beginning of a new year I like to sit down and set myself some goals for the year ahead. Over on my main blog you can read about Making S.M.A.R.T Goals for 2022. I thought that I'd feature our home goals over here.

 As home owners we have learnt that there is always something that needs doing. However I thought I'd share some of the things we really want to get done this year. 

1. New Skirting Boards 
Most of the rooms in our home need new skirting boards. However this year our aim is to get the ones in our living/dining room sorted, as they are the ones in the most need.

2. Decorating the Living/Dining room 
Once we've got new skirting boards sorted we can start decorating. We have already got our chosen wallpaper for our feature wall and just need to choose what paint colour we want.

3. Roof
We need a brand new roof which is a big expense. However we are considering opting for a temp solution of getting new tiles fitted until we can save up enough for the whole roof to be redone. 

4. Painting the bedrooms
We want to paint Blake's room a blue and will most likely get him to choose what shade he would like. As for our room we've not really decided on a colour just yet that we can agree on.

Running a home can be hard work when you have children running around and making mess wherever they go however there are things you can do to help run your home more smoothly.  Designate a play area  We have half of our dining room a place for Blake to play. We have it set up with a soft mat to play on and a bean bag incase he wants to sit and read.  Cover the sofa Using a washable throw is a great idea to protect your sofa from sticky finger marks and it can just be chucked into the washing machine. Tidy as you go along This is a habit that we need to start doing more often as it will save us a lot of time in the long run.


The bathroom in our home, doesn't need much doing to it as the previous owners, had renovated it not long before we moved in. The bathroom itself is a good size family bathroom  and colourwise I really like the tiles the previous owners had chosen. The bathroom to me is an important  place in the home as its a place for me to go after a busy and long day/week and relax. One of my favourite parts of our bathroom has to be the LED lights across the beams.  It brings a relaxing ambience to the bathroom, for when I have my bath. Blake also loves this as he is very sensory and enjoys looking at the lights whilst having his bath.


We have been home owners now for almost 2 and a half years. In that time I must admit we have learnt quite a bit. To be able to afford our own home we had to relocate from Bedfordshire to Lincolnshire and we have no regrets as we love the area and we are a train ride away from bigger cities such as Lincoln, Leeds and Sheffield.
