I absolutely love being on the Great Little Trading Co. testing team. It's one of the best jobs ever. Sneak peeks behind the scenes, checking out products before they hit the market, getting glimpses at how busy photo shoots result in picture perfect catalogues, and then finally getting my hands on the new range to put it through its paces in my own home. For someone like me who loves all things to do with family-friendly interiors and decorating children's rooms, it's an amazing team to be part of.
Children come in to our lives and fill our hearts with so much joy, but on the flip side, they fill our homes with so much of everything else … toys, noise, blankets, more toys, mess, books, bottles, and even more toys. It’s amazing how many things you accumulate when you have children and your home can change beyond recognition.
I have a problem, don't I? It's probably time for me to start a new blog dedicated entirely to storage, isn't it? I talk about it a lot, I know. Its become an addiction. I just can't help it. I've said this a million times I'm sure, but good storage can make such a massive difference to the look and feel of your home. Seriously, when everything can be easily and neatly put away, be that toys, clothes, trinkets, books, etc, it leaves your home so much nicer, brighter and clutter-free. And I think it has a similar impact on your brain and well-being, too. I definitely feel a lot more relaxed when everything around me is all neat, tidy and organised (well, as much as it can be when you live with small toy-loving children).
