When we moved into this house just over two years ago the house was an absolute state and needed decorating badly (check out these post and this post) but the kitchen was actually not that bad, not to our taste but loveable so it was last on our list. We’ve now made everywhere else almost as we want it so we decided in the 6 weeks holiday to do it up. We’ve kept the units because they were quite new when we moved in so no need to waste money we haven’t got.
The before photos are when when we cleaned out the pantry and cupboards because that’s when I remembered I needed before photos.
So we painted the pantry and changed around the shelves slightly. Added new tiles, new worktop (and more of it) a new cooker and hob and a dishwasher. We also added a new tap in the sink.
I love it so much! I want to bake all of the food now 🙂
We were recently asked if we would like to review Zuru Smashers Dino Egg and as Harry LOVES a collectible I jumped at the chance! Harry was so excited when he saw it, to be honest so was I, the egg is huge!
He couldn’t wait to get stuck in! And Smash open the giant egg.
Inside was a bag jam packed full of goodies!
One thing I love is how long the items in the egg have taken Harry to play with. For the price I would have been unimpressed if he had had enough after 5 mins but we’ve had it a couple of weeks and he still has a couple of them still to do. The eggs were opened instantly. Even Jack (3) enjoyed that part and the 18 year old haha
We were really lucky and only had one or two doubles
The next day Harry opened the glowing slime. Obviously he loved it. We were expecting some more little collectibles but dinosaur bones were inside. We soon discovered that you have to open all the larger packs from the egg to uncover all the bones to make the dinosaur which is really cool.
We were really impressed with these Smashers and I can see us getting more for Christmas. Definitely worth the price. They’re currently on offer in Smyths at the moment so get in quick.
*We were sent these items in exchange for an honest review. All words and opinions are my own.
What a 6 weeks that was! I normally completely dread the holidays but this year I actually enjoyed them. I could have done without the last week and a half (we’ve all had enough by then) but on the whole it was lovely.
Drayton manor x2, Cadbury world, London, Shreks Adventure, a few birthday parties, meals out, baking, lots of parks and days in the garden.
Did you have a good summer holiday? What was your highlight?
We recently visited Cadbury World in the summer holidays (paid for ourselves) we’ve been a few times before when the teenagers were little and always loved it. The last time we went Harry was about 2 we decided to take Harry 7 and Jack 3 as we think that’s a good age to go. The boys loved it! Most of it is as it was years ago but they have added some new things like the 4D cinema and they’re brilliant!
It was such a good day! We would definitely go again but maybe not in the summer holidays again as it was quite busy. Have you ever been? What was your favourite bit?
