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.
Alyssa is really growing up so quickly, I cannot believe how time has flown by! We have recently moved her into another room in the house and she is now sleeping in her own “Big girl bed”. I can’t believe that she is out of her cot, no longer wants to sit in her pram and hopefully soon she will be out of nappies too 🙂
We’ve started decorating her room and I think my obsession with pink is really coming through. On Saturday we started decorating what I call a memory wall which has now started to take shape.
The pieces on the wall are practically almost all pink and I would like to add some other pieces that would bring some variety…. maybe some teal or purple…. but I’m sure we will find some color to add.
This is what it looks like thus far:
