Our Guest Editor's letter - June

Getting your house ready for the holidays.


Well, summer is almost here. It’s getting warmer and the call of our beachy summer holidays are beckoning. But before we get on that plane it’s time to get our homes ready for the summer months ahead. This month we’ve got some great hints and tips to get everything in tip top shape and, whether you’re home or abroad this year, you’ll be able to sit back and relax at the drop of a hat. That’s my plan anyway!

There’s plenty to keep the kids entertained this summer and it’s always good to plan ahead. We’re definitely going to be checking out local listings for free events this month. There seem to be more and more on every year, especially as the weather warms up. I’ll also be seeing what our local museums are up to for the summer holidays. There’s always good crafting to be had. If you’re planning on having a staycation, making a tee-pee is a sure way to keep the kids playing in the garden all summer long. They love a den! Just ask Millie’s kids. My daughters couldn’t wait to get our gingham tee-pee outside and full of dolls and teddies. Don’t worry if you’re not big on sewing, check out my video and you’ll see just how easy it is to make

When it comes to home maintenance, summer chores are less of a bore and more about entertaining and having fun in the garden. I’m more than happy to clean my windows, update my soft furnishings and get my garden, and more importantly my lawn, in order if I’m able to sit back and relax with a cup of tea and a courgette muffin at the end of it - especially if it’s a chocolate courgette muffin. I couldn’t resist making a few batches and you won’t be able to either.

Within minutes Ambi Pur 3volution's scent makes its way round the whole of my house, banishing the doggy pong! I was slightly worried as most air freshners / candles/ oil burners we have tried leave me with a headache , but this is so subtle as well as doing a great job. Even my mum, who always comments about the smell of 'dog' , has said how nice our house is smelling!
