Due to recovering from a small operation this month i was worried that the Easter holidays were going to be a boring drag for my little one and we were all going to end up stuck in doors. Well lucky for us friends and family came to the rescue. With so many spontaneous days cropping up i was also thrilled that Mr Kipling had sent us three boxes of cakes. Three boxes were no where near enough but I had, as usual a secret stash of some limited edition Easter French fancies and my Hubby’s favorite Viennese whirls! Everybody knows there is always a box of Mr Ks cakes in my cupboard.
Christmas was a blast in our house and as much as i adore the sparkly lights and decorations it was time to get the house back to normal for the new year.
Olivia accumulated lots of toys as usual and over the holidays they were all stored in the play room with the door firmly closed. I spent days sitting amongst bundles of new babies, cars and fancy dress outfits trying to decide where to store everything. I literally could not see the floor.
I had seen ideas for storing kids toys online and decided to take a trip to my local Ikea and check out what they had to offer. The children’s area offered plenty of solutions and as Olivia and her Daddy were playing with the many toys laid out to use i headed off for a browse on my own.
