It’s Time To Move House

Well my house went on the market yesterday and we have had viewers…twice! With parents. We have heard nothing though after their second visit so does that mean they don’t want our house? It’s okay because there isn’t much around so we arent in a great rush BUT boy does it feel rubbish after so much cleaning and tidying!

My house is truly wonderful. Not huge or well decorated but it’s been my family home for 9 years and It’s a lovely neighbourhood. I feel sad to be selling but we really need the extra room. 

My house is in Dorset and it’s up for £255k which is a bargain. I have made so many amazing memories in this house and I’m sad about parting with it. 

We viewed the house when we were about to get married in 2007 and it felt like the biggest house a newly wedded couple would dream of.

We have outgrown our family home so it’s time to move on. A hard decision.

Wash My Car … Spotless


Okay so here is my confession from this week. I paid a company to come to my house and Hoover my car out. I have been meaning to do it for ages and the last time I did it there was still mess left under the seats and at the side of the seats. My car is abused every day with having a family of five inside. I tried banning eating in the car but food is bribery so that rule never worked.

I found Washmycar.co.uk mentioned in a Facebook selling site so I thought I would look. I would never get around to phoning them so this company was brilliant – just book online like when youre placing your food shopping delivery! Booked in minutes.

My car was spotless and it only took about 45 minutes. It was deodorised too which smells lovely.

I paid £18 for this but honestly I would do it again. My car was disgusting inside. I think perhaps every two months I will need this service. It was cleaned whilst I worked so it took no time out of my day.

Actually I think the next job will have to be to have all the seats cleaned professionally because they offer this service too!

When You Start Your Day With Costa


Not a bad way to start my working day. Although I told myself I would simply order a black coffee but when I saw what Kara from Chelseamamma was ordering I really couldn’t punish myself – Costa this is all your fault for being super attractive.

So all kids at school and a whole working day to nail the blogger outreach and PR for clients. I obviously needed fuel right?

My first Mince Pie of the year was amazing. The company was great too. Kara and I live minutes from each other but never get the chance to catch up these days. I have a feeling that a Wednesday  morning “meeting” could be the future for both of us self-employed mums. 

See you next week Costa!
