My Top 5 Festival Tips.

in , , , , by Jada, August 22, 2017
If you're heading to Reading Festival (known to us locals as Reading Rock), Leeds Festival or any other festivals this weekend or upcoming weekends you may want to read this post for some festival guidance and tips! I've lived in Reading my whole life (27 years!) and with Reading Festival, WOMAD and Rewind all within a close range, it's fair to say I've been to more than enough festivals to know how to have the best festival experience! 

From festival attire to festival parking, the local area, and all the essentials, hopefully this post will come in handy for any festival plans you have! Whether you're an experienced festival goer or a festival newbie there's something here for everyone, but the most important thing is you stay safe and have lots, and lots, and lots of fun!
If you're a long time reader of Unique Young Mum, you may recall the many post I wrote whilst me and Spud lived in the flat, I wrote often about how Spud dreamed of living in a house so he could have a garden to play in, and the fact that we couldn't have a dog in our flat - as another one of Spud's dreams was to have a dog! Every year he would write to Santa, with the same top two wishes - a house and a dog.

In November 2014, Spud's dream come true when we moved into a house, or shall I say bombsite!? The flat was our home, it was decorated, furnished and loved, it was clean, tidy and liveable, the house however needed a whole set of renovations, really it needs to be taken back to the brickwork, but without the funds to do that, I've had to concentrate on room by room! Nearly three years in there's still a LOT of work to be done, but slowly we're getting there without breaking the bank either!
Of all the rooms in the house, the bathroom is the one that tends to get neglected the most. The reason for this is unknown, but usually, it’s something to do with the fact that it’s the room that gets the least use. That being said, just because your bathroom may not get used as much as your living room and kitchen, it's not to say that it shouldn’t be a space that you love because it should be, as should every room within your home. Your home is your haven from the world. Therefore, you should love every inch of it - including your bathroom.

In an ideal world, you would have an en suite in your bedroom, your kids would have a bathroom to share, and there would be a cloakroom featuring a toilet and sink downstairs. However, life isn’t perfect, and neither are our homes, which is why a lot of families have to make do with just one bathroom that serves the needs of everyone. It might be a squeeze, but a shared bathroom isn't the end of the world.

Are You Ready To Deal With Old Age?

in , , , by Jada, August 01, 2017
Life is a rollercoaster. It has its highs and its lows and generally zigs when we think it will zag. It’s hard to judge how things will pan out, but one thing you can guarantee is that you’re going to age. Aging is natural and something that none of us can escape, even if we try to avoid the visual effects of it. Although you may not be too concerned with your old age just yet, you may be when it comes to that of a parent or close relative. As someone close to you gets older, you may want to make sure that you’re ready to deal with what goes along with it.
