The kitchen had grey pebbledash worktops, dark wood cupboards and awful brown vinyl tiles on the floor. Plus it was falling apart and the shelves were bowing.

When you have children in the car with you, you should make sure that you can brake and steer properly. In turn, this means ensuring you have good tyres fitted to your car.

    Keeping Your Toddler Active At Home

    Okay, so most toddlers are pretty active anyway, in fact it can be quite a challenge to get them to stay still but recent research by ESP Play shows that over 1000 children are being referred to hospital as a result of obesity, this really is an alarming figure and honestly shocked me. Most days when the weather is nice we find ourselves going for a walk or to the park but we generally head home after around an hour, mainly due to our exhaustion as parents, where by our toddlers would happily stay outdoors all day if they could.
