{Review} Homebase Soft Furnishings

Homebase asked me if I’d like to try their new soft furnishing range. Originally it was supposed to be a rug, but it turned out that my local store didn’t sell them. So I changed to cushions – which is a good thing! I made a massive decorating error a couple of years ago when […]

Ideal Home 2014

Valspar Paint at B&Q

When I was down in London at the Spring B&Q show in the bottom of my goodie bag was a voucher for their new Valspar paint range, which I think has launched recently. They have ready mixed paint in every colour you can imagine or you can take something with you for them to scan and match […]

Autumn Nesting

The temperature here has dropped like a stone, it’s suddenly Autumn and I’m quickly getting into hibernation mode!  Now as my husband is insisting on being ‘thrifty’ no heating is going on here until at least late October – grrr!.  So I’m living in my new £8 Fleece from Sainsbury’s. I have to say I […]

Ideal Home Exhibition 2013

A couple of weeks back I received an invitation from B&Q to see if I’d like to go the Ideal Home Exhibition and would I like to meet Kirstie Allsopp?  Well who could refuse?  I’ve not been to the Ideal Home since I got my first flat 14 years ago and then it was all about the see through […]
