Hopefully the horrible cold wintry days are now behind us, and the sunny summer days will fastly be here. With that in mind it has got us thinking about our summer must-have items for this summer. There is nothing we enjoy more than relaxing evenings in the garden after work. Since last summer we have had a garden makeover, we now have a garden that can be enjoyed by us as a family.

Also since last summer I have had to reduce my hours at work due to illness so we are always looking for the latest deals to be had.

We love to entertain and we are known for our parties, especially garden parties. This will be our first summer in our newly revamped garden and are yet to update our garden furniture. This Rattan Corner Sofa has caught our eye, it will be a great way of bringing the comfort of our living room outside with us. A perfect way to enjoy summer in comfort whilst wearing lovely summer dresses.

Seating area

It use to be a great way to sit back and relax whilst swaying in the breeze. Ian use to relax so much he’d fall asleep on it.

Relaxation 

With my birthday luckily enough being in the summer I have added a hot tub to my birthday wish list. Owning a hot tub has been a dream of mine for so long now and we now have the space for one since our house move.  I think I have managed to persuade Ian to add a bit of luxury into our garden. What a perfect way to relax and indulge into some luxury than purchasing a hot tub.

Garden maintenance

Back in January we welcomed Coco into our family, our Siberian Husky puppy. Since then we have worn our old pressure washer out keeping our garden clean and tidy. We are now looking for a new pressure washer with additional patio cleaning accessories for making this never-ending task easier and faster.

Summer cooking

Now we have a nice new patio with a canopy over the top, we are now looking at replacing our existing coal BBQ with a gas BBQ so that we can then BBQ in all weathers come rain or shine. This will be a perfect addition when entertaining at our garden parties.

February

How was your February? ours was rather busy but fun with some big changes that had taken place.

Our month started with a party – Lee turned sweet sixteen so we had a small family celebration at home, we had 15 people come to dinner. We are celebrating Lee’s birthday with a trip to Barcelona so kept it small as celebrations will be taking place over in Barcelona.

We have been having a bit of a bedroom makeover, not just in Lee’s room but ours too!

Lee created a unique bedroom, he took full control of his bedroom makeover, he chose the furniture, colour and even decorating it himself. He is now hunting for soft furnishing to help style it.

Our bedroom also saw big changes too, it is not just a bedroom anymore – it is also an office too!

We needed somewhere we could escape to where we can get our work done in peace, minus distractions. Having somewhere quiet to escape to saves us from working late into the evenings and we can also get more work done too, meeting those all important deadlines.

Our home also saw the arrival of lovely new carpet. The carpet was for Lee’s bedroom and our bedroom/office. We are yet to still carpet Bradley’s room but work is still needing to bed done in there yet.

Bradley got creative with his stickbots and made this short valentines video with them. Full review can be found >>>HERE<<<

We enjoyed another date-night for valentines night, we made a lovely paella and enjoyed a lovely bottle of Prosecco. It was a lovely evening, we was going to go out but we was both too tired so opted to stay home instead and cook.

Half term week we got creative and Bradley made a tin can robot and an air power engine car these can be seen here >> On the blog <<

We attended open day at our local college for Lee to chat with tutors about the courses best for his career choices. He is busy with exams and studying hard trying to get the best GCSE results in hope to get on his chosen course.

I was fancying a change in hairstyle/colour… what do you think?

We celebrated chinese new year and made a lovely homemade chinese sweet and sour pork.

We are currently busy getting our gardens ready for spring, they was a little neglected.

A busy but fun February – How was yours?
