Wall Art | New York Skyline

It was time to do something with one of the walls in Ross's room. At one stage the two little ones had coloured on the wall behind his bed; armed with markers in their tiny hands they'd obviously decided to get creative on that white blank space. Also the picture frames I'd hung in the same spot fell off anytime we lifted up the bed base to get at the under bed storage. I needed a solution and decided to either repaint or put up some really cool inspiring art or photo frames that didn't fall off when we lifted up the bed!

So David came up with a suggestion... Put up a massive sticker of the New York skyline, with inspiring quotes written on the buildings and pictures of Ross and his brothers hidden among the sky scrapers.

As amazing as it sounded I wasn't sure... I didn't want to take away from the tranquil feel in his bedroom. But sure yeah, let's try it.

Macaroni Cheese with Crab

I adore comfort food; hearty Bœuf Bourguignon, warming sweet potato soup with buttery slices of baguette for dipping, hot apple crumble with a scoop of melting vanilla ice-cream on top, and of course, the ultimate comfort food, Macaroni & Cheese. I used to make this recipe all the time, it was Ross's favourite meal at one stage. I remember throwing in some bacon pieces and peas to make it a bit more 'balanced' - Ha!
