Welcome to the February edition of The Sunday Sitdown.
We’re so happy that Spring is finally here :-)
While we know that an Irish spring can also mean a drastic drop in temperature, there’s also something so wonderfully energising about that springtime light. Unfortunately, it also reveals all the dust on the surfaces and streaks on the windows!
A family home won’t always be clean and tidy, but a good spring clean once a year does wonders, and for me certainly sparks lots of joy.
While I’m on the topic of spring cleaning, I should also mention that we just launched a brand new product just in time for a March organising spree - Wonder Labels for the home.
You can find out more about them further along in our newsletter.
As always, it’s time to sit down, get comfortable, and be inspired to make family life that little bit more wonderful.
I’m off now to find a bucket, a pair of gloves, a grubby window and as many pairs of hands as I can round up!

Captain Crunch Chicken Fingers
Years ago, I worked in Planet Hollywood in South Carolina. One day, on my break, I discovered one of the tastiest appetisers I've ever eaten - Captain Crunch chicken fingers.
I just couldn’t get enough. And most days when my break came round, I would order the juicy, crispy, chicken strips served with a creole honey mustard dip. The crispy coating was made from a popular breakfast cereal - Captain Crunch, which made them deliciously crunchy, with just a hint of sweetness.
