Well it’s back to normality. Summer holidays are over (boo), schools are back (anyone else glad?) and unsurprisingly the weather has turned. I for one am finding that I have a little bit more time on my hands since the eldest went back. Probably because I am spending less time tidying up the constant trail of destruction. Why is that? She is like a tiny, little human wrecking ball. And now that I have a spare hour to myself most afternoons I have decided it’s time to give the living room a new look. I’ve decided to do this without redecorating but by changing the colour scheme of my curtains, cushions etc. I have yet to visit the new Dunelm Mill store in Paisley but have had a look on their website and have seen some great key pieces in lovely colours.
Although there are less activities on now with the kids being back at school there are still plenty of after school activites and weekend fun to keep the family entertained. Below I have rounded up the listings from Mumsnet Renfrewshire which are getting the most interest.
