Half term is upon us and thousands of delighted children have taken to our parks, cinemas, shops and streets. Everywhere is packed to the rafters! It’s a short but sweet school holiday peppered with halloween preparations and weather-permitting excursions which, more often than not, result in mud getting somewhere it shouldn't... I love how children live in the moment, soaking up the autumn rays, revelling in frosty breath and fireworks. If only mums and dads could do the same! You see, since becoming a parent I have realised that half term isn't just a little jolly to break up the season. ..
So the new school term is well under way. With any luck, your children will be sleeping soundly and waking up happy, refreshed and ready to face each day. But if not, hang on in there, it WILL get better! In the meantime take a look at our helpful hints below. Experts say that increasing your child’s sleep by as little as half an hour each day can result in dramatic improvements in their schoolwork, attitude and general well being so it really is worth making the effort to get it right - not least if it means less back chat in the mornings! Here goes… ..
October is a FANGtastic and SPOOKtacular month which certainly raises our spirits (and those of a few departed souls too). I know the month has barely begun but the shops are already full of fancy dress regalia, dangly cobwebs and suitably orange-clad aisles. If only we could just get on with enjoying this BOOtiful month instead of being reminded that the dreaded horrors of Halloween await! I’m not a huge fan of this overblown occasion if I’m honest. Traipsing around in the dark on what you can guarantee will be a wet and miserable October night is not what I would call fun. A..
Our exclusive children’s furniture collections have been designed to suit all ages and tastes.

There are simple desi..
So the kids are back at school, all that holiday washing is finally done (those pesky sleeping bags take forever to dry. Whose idea was it to go camping anyway?) and your house is in a state of considerable calm. But if you’re still not feeling at one with the world, then maybe you need a little therapy - of the retail kind. As a mother, there is nothing more satisfying than seeing my girls tucked up in bed each night feeling sleepy, calm and content. At this time of year they are always tired after a long day at school and are really ready to rest. So how lovely then to send t..
Sharing a bedroom can be frantic and fun in equal measure. I remember it well being the younger - and somewhat tidier (not-that-I-go-on-about-it) - of the sisters during my childhood years. We laughed, we argued, we drew imaginary lines across the floor to mark our territory. Then everything changed when we took delivery of our shiny new bunk beds. Jack and Jill Bunk Bed Suddenly, we had more space in our respective ‘territories’ and (very occasionally) even managed to share the floor when we needed another player in our individual games. I was lumbered..
So the children are back where they belong (at school that is) and your home is once again the clean and tidy haven you have ached for all summer. Aaaand relax! To ensure you keep this reinstated authority on all things ‘decor’, you might need our assistance. We’re thinking children's desks. Beautiful, durable, spacious desks. You might be wondering ‘?’ But picture this. A world where the kitchen table isn’t buried in textbooks and a smattering of pens. Not to mention empty crisp packets and half finished drinks that will no doubt get spilled any...second..
The school holidays are almost over for many of us...Is that a collective sigh of relief I can hear? Yes, it certainly has been a tough few weeks, juggling work and childcare whilst trying to entertain a rabble of over-excited children. Surely there should be a reality show for this kind of stuff? Anyway, just a few days more to suffer the trail of grass through the length of the house and those endless ‘surprises’ left in the craziest places. Banana skin in the washing machine anyone? Of course, these things will still go on I’m sure, just less often once our children are safely back..
Are you sad that the Olympics are over or are you celebrating the return to normal life - and normal tv schedules for that matter? Despite Rio 2016 following a summer of back to back sporting events - Euro 2016, Wimbledon, the Tour de France to name but three - the chances are you were hook, line and sinker like myself. Even if you’re not such a sporting fanatic, how could you fail to be impressed by our super elite athletes slugging it out at the top of their game? And if that didn’t pique your interest, perhaps you just tuned in to take a glance at those impossibly tiny..
If your children have been burning the candle at both ends this summer you might be wondering, like I am, how on earth you’re going to get them back into school mode in time for the autumn term. This is the one and only occasion when beautiful handmade children’s beds let me down - if only a little. You see, they are just toooooo comfy and impossible to get out of in the morning! Daisy Brambles Cabin Bed However, thanks to clever internet company, Web Blinds, there might just be a solution - namely their innovative Back to School Sleep Calculator which helps to set ..
