Garden Features You Can Have Now The Kids Are Grown-Up

When you have little ones, your first priority is to make sure your humble abode is child-friendly. Therefore, there are a lot of features parents have to go without for their house as it’s not practical with little ones. So when your kids grow up, it gives you the opportunity to invest in features that you have had to live without. In fact, in terms of your garden, here are some features you can have now the kids are grown up.

Outdoor cooking equipment

It’s always a challenge cooking outside when you have little ones to look after. At the end of the day, you take your eye off them for a minute, and they could end up burning themselves on the BBQ. Therefore, a lot of parents avoid cooking outside when they have little ones. So now your kids are grown up, it’s time to take the opportunity to get some outdoor cooking equipment. After all, nothing beats cooking some meat and vegetables on the grill. It might be that you decide to get a large gas or charcoal BBQ for your garden. After all, this will be perfect in the summer months. Or you might even get a fully stocked outdoor kitchen so that you have everything you need to whip up some meals. In fact, you can look on http://www.housebeautiful.com/room-decorating/kitchens/g9/outdoor-kitchen-design-ideas-0511/ for some outdoor kitchen ideas that you will love.


A beautiful garden pond

It’s always a challenge to have a pond in your garden if you have little ones. After all, you need to ensure they don’t get too close as you don’t want them to be at risk of drowning. Therefore, it often means you have to go without a pond in the garden. Now that your kids are all grown up, it’s time to get a beautiful garden pond. After all, you can now have one of a significant size in your garden. And it’s a stunning feature which will bring character to your yard. Therefore, look at the variety of ponds to find one which will be great in your garden. And remember to get the tools to ensure it stays in good condition. After all, you want a clear pond which will keep your fish healthy. Therefore, look on sites like http://www.swelluk.com/pond/pond-pumps-62.html to find the tools you need for your pond. And once it’s all set-up, you can find some beautiful fish!

A hot tub

Of course, you can install a hot tub in your yard when you have little ones. But it’s always a hazard when you have kids around. After all, they could fall in while you are not around and hurt themselves. And if the bubbles are going, they could be at risk of drowning. Therefore, now is the perfect time to add the relaxing feature to your yard. If the sun comes out, it can be a great way to spend an evening with your other half. It’s also perfect for when guests come over; they will be desperate to have a go in the tub!


And now you can grow as many vegetables as you like. After all, you don’t have to worry about little ones taking a bite of something that’s only half formed!

My Failed Project In Baking Mini Egg Cakes

I don't know why, I follow exactly the ingredients and the method written in her website but it was not successful.  Something went wrong somewhere but I don't think I want to try it again.  This recipe is called Mini Egg Cake which is supposed to be soft, airy, light sponge cake but the way I made them, they turned out hard and crusty cake.   If I try again one day, I will half the portion... cos I like to eat these traditional egg cakes....

Home Cooked Dishes

NOT MUCH HAPPENING... and lazy too....

One dish meal....  Pumpkin reminds me of sweet potatoes...sweet after cooking... Another dinner meal consist of Sambal Fish, black pepper met and a hard boiled egg  I only boiled the egg, the other two dishes were "sponsored" by my neighbour... LOL...
