Trying To Reduce The Panic Levels Due To Home Safety!

Living in a flat for over seven years has made me have to adapt to certain ways now we're living in a house, not only is the house in dire need of lots of decoration, but it also needs to be made safe too. Two days after moving in to our new home, we had to remove the living room door, it was hanging by one hinge and way too dangerous for my liking.

That was just the living room door, after further inspection, we realised that every door in the house is damaged of some sort, and so they all need replacing, including the front and back door, it's all working out to be a very lengthy process, but I have to remind myself that Rome wasn't built in a day!

Luckily Spud is a lot more wiser and safer on his feet now he's nine, however, I still have regular contact with my nephews, and my cousins baby girl, to say we're ever young child free here would be a lie, we've always got guest and their small children in tow popping in, and I've not ruled off having another child myself one day, so I want to make sure I get the safest doors around, and that's when I come across the idea of folding doors, likes these ones from Barrier Components.

I'm not the best when it comes to DIY, when my dad ask me to retrieve a certain screwdriver from his toolbox, I have to ask him if its the star or straight one, because when he says Philips, or the alike, I have no idea what he is talking about, so it won't be a surprise when I tell you I've never seen nor heard of folding doors before, I've always presumed doors are pretty standard, apart from them silly electric turning ones that supermarkets sometimes have!

It's no secret that I am a worrier, an extreme worrier and I also panic loads, if one of the children fall over, it's normally me who sets them off crying because of my worrying and fear, however if I had safer doors and stairs in my property, I think I may just be able to relax a little bit, and let the children have a bit more freedom instead of me walking around behind them constantly!

After a childhood memory of me jamming my finger in my grandparents bedroom door, resulting in a trip to hospital, blood everywhere and a loose finger nail for months, one of my worse fears is the children shutting their finger in a doorway or a kitchen cupboard, I've already purchased cupboard locks, and now I've found folding doors, I think my panic levels may lower, or so I hope!

Do you have any ideas on how to help a mother/auntie relax a little bit?

I'd love to hear your ideas and tips below!

Until next time,
