Home Improvements


When we moved into our little flat almost four years ago now - how has it gone that fast? We had big plans, there were quite a few things on our list to fix, or replace, to do up or pull out, and I'm happy to say that we are slowly getting through that list. As much as living in a flat frustrated us both, especially when it comes to the girls and wanting to be able to play outside, I don't think we will move anytime soon. We are in the perfect area for the girls. It's lovely here, and the girls are so happy. We are close to the school Emily will go to, and everything we need is right on our doorstep. We are also quite lucky in the sense we are in between two great big greens, so the girls do have plenty of space to run around and play. With that in mind, I thought I would share with you the few things we are currently working on.



Our balcony
We are extremely lucky that the girls have a balcony, which gives them the ability to have an outside space to play in. I often find Emily out there playing with the water table. She loves to tell all her friends that she doesn't have a garden, but she has a princess balcony, she thinks its the best thing ever which makes me incredibly happy. We did get lots of complaints and anger from neighbours for letting the girls play outside, which absolutely baffles me. They are just playing with water and having fun - I don't see how that is a bad thing? Anyway, we recently got our overflow pipe changed, so rather than just trickling off the balcony to the floor below, and bothering everyone on the way down. It now goes directly into the overflow pipe and doesn't bother anyone, meaning the girls can play out there to their heart's content with as much water as they like.

Our bathroom
My bathroom is a sore topic of conversation in our house, there are many times we have had to get drainage services UK out to fix a pipe or unblock a pipe, I didn't think we would experience many blockages as we are the top floor, but due to the state the previous tenants left the flat in, it needs quite a lot of work, we are actually hoping to rip out the bathroom and get it replaced soon, and I can't wait to have a lovely new tiled floor!

Our kitchen
Our poor kitchen is very very dated. I can't say I completely hate it, because that would be a lie. I do love the amount of storage space we have. I just really wish that it was more up to date, and we got new cupboards and worktops. Our cupboards are falling apart. We have recently had a meeting with the people we rent from, as they are planning to pull out and completely replace our kitchen in the next year or so. I cannot wait to be able to pick out new cupboards and worktops. It really will make all the difference to our kitchen once it is done.

I'd love to hear if there is any home improvements you are currently working on?
