Staycation Ideas with JORD Watches

*Advertorial

We have been thinking about staycation ideas with JORD watches. Usually, we would spend a while planning to see somewhere that is far away from where we live. This year though, we have spent some time closer to home. We needed to keep an eye on the time so my Dad took his unique watch from JORD along with us.

Do all Holidays Need to be Far Away?

My children find long journeys difficult. They are so excited and eager to get to our destination, that the trip seems to last forever for them. We have also had issues with travel sickness in the past. Far away holidays are great but we have decided that this year, we don’t need to go far at all.

Messy Room to Homework Station: Bedroom Makeover

*Advertorial

As my son gets older, his bedroom seems to have got messier. He used to keep it very tidy but since turning ten years old, he puts things down and just leaves them. His Grandma and I have spent quite some time tidying his room over the past few months. It had got to the point where we had had quite enough of doing this for him though. We decided that he needed to take back the responsibility of keeping it tidy himself. We just had to figure out a way to motivate him to keep his room clean and clear.

Messy bedroom to homework station: An inspiring bedroom makeover. My son's bedroom was very messy so when we were given a desk from Kit Out My Office, we got to work tidying his bedroom. We re-arranaged the furniture in the bedroom and added the desk. Homework stations for kids and homework stations for teenagers are a great way to motivate children to do their homework and to keep the room tidy. Desk orginaisation is important too. We have made sure that my son has everything he needs within arms reach, to get his homework done quickly and painlessly. Less distractions are best. This bedroom idea for small rooms is perfect for my tween. This shows the bedroom makeover before and after pictures. This Aspire desk is great for any budget. My son chose a science themed desk space. He included his periodic table, robot stacking dolls, magnet fiddle toy, his science experiments book, a quote from Einstein to motivate him, his guitar picks, a stationary pot and of course, his Lego creation. #ad

BBQ Rump Steaks with Citrus Dip #RaiseTheSteaks

*Advertorial

This year, we are trying to make our British barbecue more exciting by using a wider range of recipes than the usual food that we seem to make each year. We have been experimenting with Simply Beef and Lamb’s Citrus Marinated Steaks recipe to add more flavours to our barbecue. Our BBQ Rump Steaks with Citrus Dip can be used with steaks in a variety of ways. We have also been trying out different potato side dishes.
