House Tour // My Bedroom.


Now I've shown you the boys room, I thought it would be nice to add my room into the house tour blogs.

Our room was last room to be done, as we put most of the unpacked boxes in there until we had worked our way through them.
It's such a big room that it wasn't really an issue, but its sooo nice now all the boxes are gone.


As you walk into our room the first thing to really catch your eye, is the balcony.
Yes we have a balcony and yes I love it!
I often spy on the boys whilst they are playing in the garden.


Having a coffee in the morning sat here really is utter bliss!
We just need to add some plants and maybe a table and it will be perfect.


This is Jon's guitar corner, playing guitar helps him stop focusing on his back pain and slip away into something he really enjoys.
He's not great but he's learning.
The boys love sneaking into our room, just to have a strum on one of his many guitars.


Our view from our bed, we could'nt really decided on what sort of storage to have in our room. 
We wanted something fun but everything we looked at wouldn't fit the space.
So we decided on getting some more KALLAX shelving, as we have these in most of the rooms in the house and they really are great.

We centred them under our VELUX window and blinds, and I think they look rather smart.
They work really well and we can store a lot more than just our clothes in their!
Keeping the room tidy and semi clutter free.


Other than our balcony doors, we don't have any other windows in the room, so the VELUX window helps keep the room looking nice and airy.
We've hung some of our random dangly things off it, only as they have no where else to go at the moment, but we've grown to like them there. So they'll probably end up living their forever or until Rupert has successfully knocked them off.

Seeing the stars through this window at night is lovely, we hardly ever have the blind down.


My Side of the KALLAX unit.
I found these paper hearts in Sainsbury's over valentines and really loved them.
I couldn't find anywhere to hang them so they've just ended up here but it was looking rather bare on my side, so they just fill it up nicely.

I have a big thing for succulents at the moment and when I saw this one for just £1 I couldn't say no!
The pink bottom matches rather nicely with the pink paper heart.
Candle holders are a must in any room (minus children's)

My camera lives on my unit too, as its easy to get when I need it or when I'm running out to an event.
I probably should invest in a bag sooner rather than later, specially now I have a brand new lens.


Jon's side is pretty boring, so I added a few touches whilst he wasn't looking.
Again another plant, you can never have too many plants.
Apparent aloe vera plants are good for aiding sleep.

This red love light is from Sass & Belle.
The wicker basket is from Rice.
Both of which are sold from Island Homewares.


My side of the bed, you'll usually find a mountain of books and nail varnishes.
I had a little tidy up and this was the result.
Some empty Glossy Boxes a chevron basket filled with nail varnishes and nail files and just a teeny tiny selection of my newest books and my favourite perfumes.

My Totoro picture needs a new frame, as the one its in is falling to pieces.
Once I've gotten round to finding a new frame it will be going up on the landing!


This is my Gloomy Bear, I bought him from a toy shop in Tokyo when I visited Japan back when I was 19.
I adore all things Anime and manga and just had to have him.
He's 12 years old and I'm pretty impressed none of the boys have ruined him yet.


As our room is a ridiculous size Jon decided in the corner opposite his guitar corner he would have a Doctor Who corner.
Jon has been collecting Doctor Who bits and bobs since he was younger than Noah, so was over the moon when he could finally put it all out on display.
As you can see we have even more KALLAX units in our room!


He's very protective over his collection and the boys all know not to go near it.


In the corner on the other side of the guitar corner I have my desk.
It's not really being used yet but two of the shelves are done.
I prefer to do my work down stairs on the kitchen table, as the chairs are more comfy and I have a better view!


This is the view from outside of our balcony!

I love that our house isn't your typical house and that it stands out from all the others on the lane.

Daddy's Boy

Does your child have a favourite?
Oscar certainly does!


When telling him I love him, his response is 'I love Daddy'.
It is like he can only love one if us, so Daddy is his choice and nothing will sway him.
Even when I tell him its ok to love both of us, he still responds with I love daddy.
Even if I'm comforting him, he will still sob into my chest that he loves daddy.

When the twins were younger they each picked a grandparent from my side and Jon's side and said that was their granny.
They have only recently just figured out that both my mum and Jon's mums are their grannies and that's ok!
They can have two and they no longer have to pick which one is theirs.

Is it a twin thing?
Do they only think they can have one parent, maybe they don't fancy sharing their special people?

Even though its like a slap in the face every night come bedtime I stay strong and respond with and Daddy loves you too.
There's not much more I think I can do, other than take it on the chin and hope he gets over it and realises its ok to love the both of us.

Twinning Is Winning

During the autumn / winter months you'll most likely find me in a cosy jumper and jeans hid underneath a mountain of blankets!

I've recently treated myself to some new jumpers, one because none of my old ones fit, and two because there are sooooo sooo soooooo many nice ones about!
(I keep telling myself that as it makes me feel better about the dreaded weight gain!)

And when I can get Ru a matching one means its must buy!
I'm really loving our matching Rainbow Bax and Bay jumpers.

Ru-bear


You know when you look at your child and just wish that they would just stay that way forever!?

Ru may be hard to handle sometimes but I don't ever want him to change!
We found a new park this morning and he loved exploring all the different climbing frames.

Once we move I'm hoping I can get on with getting him re referred for speech and language therapy and then if need be getting him assessed for ASD.

Pumkin Baby

Rupert spotted a mini pumpkin whilst we were doing a quick shop in Morrison's the other day and automatically started calling it his baby!


In the past few days this pumpkin has sat at the dinner table with us,
slept on the floor next to his bed,
had bed time cuddles on the sofa with us.

After his full 10 hours at nursery yesterday Rupert was more pleased to see his 'baby' than me.
He gave it a zillion kisses and sat down to watch the iPad with it.


Oscar lovingly threw it on the floor and it started leaking juice so today I have to find a fake replacement or another pumpkin before Rupert realises that his baby is no more.

As for pumpkin baby no 1, I may turn into pumpkin chips!

Weekly Postcards From The Beach #4

This weeks postcard from Touchnote was sent to my gran, who lives in Exeter.

The photo of Ru is actually an old one, as this weekend we were in London visiting Sea Life London and then we were all bar Ru were struck down with food poisoning.

So we didn't quite manage our weekend walk along the beach.



As my gran lives in Exeter we don't get to see her that much, so it's always nice to stay in touch other ways.

Phone calls are great but it is always lovely to receive something other than a bill/junk in the post.

I know my gran will love this postcard of her little Ru, I'm betting she'll call me the moment it turns up.
