For a while now I’ve been desperate to sort out Benedict’s toys. Until now, we just had a big wicker basket where all his toys were “thrown” in at the end of the day; there was absolutely no order and no way of finding all the bits that went with a particular toy, just one big chaotic mess!
So we did the trusted Ikea trip and got one of these units below with some baskets. Its worked so well; it means Benedict can find toys on his own, and he can also tidy up the toys putting them in their own homes. Very very pleased with it!
We’ve also had different storage boxes dotted all over Benedict’s bedroom filled with clothes he’s grown out of. So with the new baby coming in August, I thought now would be a good time to sort out those clothes too. It was quite emotional actually going through Benedict’s newborn baby clothes… I can’t believe he was ever that tiny! And to think that in the summer there will be a brand new baby in those clothes… Really surreal.

I love this photo. I wrapped B up while I was sorting things so he could go in and out onto the balcony… Lots of warm woolliness!
