Once upon a time, a very long time ago (before children), my third drawer was the home to all things pretty - tea towels, spare candles, tea lights, matches (to light forementioned pretty candles), napkin rings, and other table accessories.

These days my third drawer (actually now located across a large top drawer next to the cutlery), is full of useful things, like tools.

And batteries. And tape. And string.

Because barely a few days pass by when we don't pull out the tools and fix something.

Whether it be a torn sleeve, cover or page of a book, a broken toy, or some new batteries (which we seem to always need more of).

So we always have a spare (or five) of each sized battery.

The boys have their favourite toys, so I can't seem too ignore the constant fixing that needs to be done.

Plus, they keep asking!

Besides, I don't really mind. It keeps the lads very busy. Especially in the 'fixing' part as well as the enjoying of the toy. Or book. Or whatever it is that needs to be fixed.

Plus, what boy doesn't enjoy finding how the insides work of a thing that makes noise, or plays music?

Do you find that there is a constant need for fixing at your place?


  1. I'm so ashamed - I tend to tell A to ask her dad to help fix things. Mainly because I can't be bothered... but just realised what message that sends to her! Damn!

  2. Post first child, Santa bought me a girly pink screwdriver set which is in its own little case and sits in my third drawer. Homme always reaches for it before heading the the garage too!

  3. OMG - you took the words right out of my mouth!! i always feel like i;m fixing things, and seriously my kids must believe I am magic or something, because quite honestly when sticky take can really be a savour!!!

    your boys are so cute xx


Thank you for your thoughtful and positive words and taking the time to comment. Love Kymmie. xx
