Feeding the family doesn’t have to be expensive or mean eating unhealthily. It can also be quick with the help of a microwave oven! I’ve previously written about some of the ways I like to save money when I’m in the supermarket. However, this time I’m focusing my money saving tips on feeding the family cheaply. View Post
On Saturday (9th September), Dave and I decided we’d visit Dover Castle with Autumn. Birds of prey, particularly owls, are one of my many interests. As such, I really wanted to go and watch their historic falconry displays. Whilst I’ve watched several displays before, this one is different as it looks at the historic elements of falconry. In this case, the focus was Tudor falconry. View Post
Recently, the opportunity arose to review a spider catcher from Brainstorm. I’d seen spider catchers before, but none quite like this. I was intrigued and wondered how well it would work. It arrived towards the end of August and I was hopeful I’d find a spider to test it on. Naturally though, all of the spiders in my vicinity must have known because it took THREE WEEKS of patience until I FINALLY found a spider in my home!
The spider catcher does come with a plastic spider, which is good for testing it on if, like me, you can’t find any spiders. However, it does look quite realistic from a fairly small distance. As such, if you’re scared of spiders, you may want to dispose of it fairly quickly! After I used my plastic spider as a tester, I’ve systematically put it in comical situations around the house and on my husband‘s head. My cat is also quite fond of it. Anyway, on to the proper review… View Post
Hooray, I’m going to my first blogger’s event later this month! September’s BlogOn is Christmas themed and I can’t wait to rock my Christmas jumper, learn lots and meet other bloggers. If you’ve heard of BlogOn, you’ve more than likely heard of the goodies too and the fact that you NEED TO TAKE A SUITCASE. I have been assured that this isn’t a hoax, so I’d be lying if I said I wouldn’t be excited about ALL THE STUFF! I’ll also be officially ‘up north’ for the first time in my life, finally ticking off one of the things on my 30 before 30 list.
The questions have just been released for the BlogOn Xmas Jumper Linky. I’m taking part as a little ‘getting to know me’ post before I meet some of my lovely fellow bloggers later this month! Please wave hello in the comments, (and in Manchester), and direct me to your posts! View Post
With a third royal baby on the way, baby names are a hot topic right now! Choosing your baby’s name is fun, but can also lead to some stressful moments! My husband and I didn’t do too badly, but I’ve heard of couples having full-blown arguments over choosing their unborn child’s name. Luckily, we only had a couple of minor disagreements.
My husband thought it was quite ridiculous at times where I sought baby name inspiration from. However, I think it’s good to take inspiration from all kinds of sources! View Post
