We’ve finally got around to fitting a new UltraHeat radiator in our living room recently. As you may have read in older blog posts, I am desperately trying to get our living room decorated. My husband and I were lucky to get onto the property ladder at 20. Rather than getting a flat in good condition, we opted to buy a house in not as good a condition. Fast forward five years and the living room is still almost entirely in the state the previous owners (who had the house repossessed) left it in with bad paintwork, shoddy woodwork and laminate flooring in a terrible condition.
We’d probably have sorted it out by now if we hadn’t have got married or had a child, but I didn’t want plans for these important life experiences to be delayed by a room. Losing a few relatives made me realise that those were things I wanted to do sooner rather than later and that decorating could wait. However, we are trying to do things slowly, as time and money allow. One embarrassment has always been the large radiator leaning forwards off of its brackets underneath our windowsill. Not only that, but it was a nightmare to clean and things kept getting stuck down it. View Post
Something very exciting is happening for fans of PJ Masks on 30th October – just in time for Halloween! For the first time, you can follow the adventures of Catboy, Owlette and Gekko on DVD and digital download. Autumn may only be 13 months old today, but she’s a fan of PJ Masks already! I think the biggest fan in our household, though, may be my 26 year old husband. He won’t admit it, but he’ll stand in front of the TV watching it for ages. Anyway, I digress. Here’s what we thought… View Post
If you’ve weaned a baby in the last 2 years, or have recently started looking at what foods are available, you may have heard of For Aisha. They create baby food which is bursting with flavour, taking inspiration from around the world. They are also ideal for Muslims, as their baby foods are halal.
I started weaning Autumn shortly before 6 months and started off gently. However, now I am always looking for new flavours and foods for Autumn to try. I thought that these pouches would be a great way to introduce her tiny tastebuds to some more exotic flavours. Whilst the usual baby foods such as cottage pie, spaghetti bolognese etcetera are great, I thought it would be good for her to try something a little more interesting. 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
I can’t lie; when I found out about Creams British Luxury opening at Bluewater, I was excited. As far as I’m aware, there’s nowhere else at Bluewater that you can go for an afternoon tea. I was delighted to be given the opportunity to visit them and write a review. My mum adores afternoon tea, so I thought I’d take her as my guest for a pre-birthday treat. View Post
