Island Homewares

So Jon was unfortunately fired from his job, due to not being able to give them a set date for his next spinal fusion operation.

He broke his back way back in 2012 just after the twins were born, due to lifting something heavy at work.
He had already had a previous back operation before I had met him.

He was an engineer but because of this second accident, he was re-deployed to the training centre to become a store manager (posh word for care taker)

We had to move house, as his pay went down and to be closer to where he was now working.

He was probably doing more work that could hurt his back as a store manager than when he was an engineer, because of this he re hurt his back again last year!

He's now awaiting his 3rd back surgery and no longer employed with the company that he was working for.
I cannot name them, due to the fact Jon is going through a legal process due to the accident he had back in 2012.

So because of all of this, Jon needed a job that would be secure no matter what, and that really only meant he had to come up with his very own business!

Was born.

We went for an online homewares shop as there is something for everyone in that genre of shop.

We wanted to stock fun things, things that are hard to find in the local shops, as if you can find it in the shops you're not likely to go and search online.

Island Homewares has a big RiceDK range, which will even include furniture.
I am a big RiceDK fan and if I had my way our whole house would be full of it.

There is also a nice array of Sass and Belle, Cubic, Magpie, Roy Kirkham plus many more.

The website is still in its early days and Jon is constantly adding more stock, to keep up with the latest trends.
His next big order will be for some funky household gadgets.

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
