It’s been a few months since we started recycling at home. Yes, we are a bit delayed but better late than never, right?
It all started after Aidan watched an episode of Peppa Pig. Peppa and George were learning about recycling and Aidan did too. He told me that Peppa says that recycling is VERY important, so we need to recycle at home.
He was very interested in the topic, so we did more research on it online and found some more education on why its so important and the kids were even more inspired to get recycling. We also searched what kind of recycling services exists in our area.
When I received the press release about Domestly, South Africa’s first on-demand cleaning app, it couldn’t have come at a better time. Our Domestic Worker was about to take a week’s leave and we were on our own, cleaning wise!
Domestly gave me a voucher to use on their app, whereby I could quickly browse profiles of available professional cleaners in my area and then immediately book and pay for their service.
I’m so happy to share some pictures of Aidan’s nautical nursery with you. It wasn’t 100% ready by the time he arrived and I wanted to add a few more small touches but nonetheless, we are enjoying the space! I got some amazing tips from Melissa Louise ( see my previous post) which really helped me make the most out of the room. Although we re-used a number of hand-me-downs such as the cot, compactum and feeding chair from Alyssa’s nursery, it was really fun putting the room together and we are really happy with the end result.
With Alyssa settled in at school, her 2nd birthday party underway and all our little home improvements completed, we can finally start preparing the nursery for our little boy who is due to arrive in just 8 weeks! I’m excited about creating a special space for our son, where we’ll be spending a lot of time. I want a space that feels appropriate for a baby, but also something practical that would feel connected with the rest of our home.We are reusing many of the basic pieces from when Alyssa was little, but I am hoping to transform the room so that we still get that “new” feeling before baby arrives.
