Everdine Review

You may have spotted recently that I am getting back to the gym. As I want to feel fitter and healthier, I have also been pondering our meal options. We need to eat more healthily, though I often struggle to make the time to cook from scratch and feel I lack the patience and skills to do so. I also feel we’ve got into a rut with some of our meals, so I wanted to try new ideas. With all of these thoughts buzzing round my head, when Everdine got in touch asking me to review their meal service it was actually Read more >


SmartSign Review & Competition

As you’ll know, I work from home. It’s a funny thing, working from home for yourself, as you choose your own hours, work out your own ethics and practices and create your own work space. For me, that work space is a desk in a room that also functions as a playroom for the kids and houses our guinea pigs in their huge enclosure. With multi-purposes, I do what I can to make it feel professional and nice to work in, which is where my lovely new addition comes in. Thanks to SmartSign, I have a new sign and I Read more >

We are delighted to be working with Playmobil this year as part of their playologists team, testing and sharing their products with you.

BookBeat: Fitting More Stories Into My Life

It’s no secret that I adore books. I tend to read 3-4 a month at this time of the year whilst I’m also studying, and I manage to get through many more over the summer when I am free to do so. However, I have never tried audiobooks. Until now. I have been welcomed to the world of audiobooks through BookBeat. BookBeat is relatively new to the UK, having established itself in Sweden, then Finland and now we have it here in the UK. It’s been something of a revelation to me. What is BookBeat? Founded in 2015, BookBeat is Read more >


Our Stay Play Explore Break

Last weekend saw us having a Stay Play Explore mini-break around Leicestershire. I have only got really good things to say about this, so I will say right up front that I think this break represents fantastic value for money, is great for families and every aspect of our stay and adventures were crammed with fun and great service. What more could we need? How the Stay Play Explore Break works For a family break, you can choose 3 attractions to visit over the weekend (or indeed over three separate weekends if you’re relatively local and want to do it this way) Read more >

5 Benefits of Using a Dehumidifier

5 Benefits of Using a Dehumidifier

A few weeks ago we were sent a Vax Power Extract 20L Dehumidifier to test out. As we’d never had a dehumidifier before, I was keen to see how they worked and what difference they made. I did a little bit of searching about to find out what benefits it was likely to bring, so for those of you wondering the same, here are just a few things that they can do: Reduce allergies. Many of the most common allergy triggers, especially dust mites, mould, and mildew, thrive in humid environments. Preserve food and furnishings. With less moisture in the air, Read more >


Meeting Santa at The National Sea Life Centre

Over the weekend we took the kids to the National Sea Life Centre Birmingham to meet the man himself, Santa Claus! It’s fair to say that they were really, really looking forward to it. We had a brilliant time at the Sea Life Centre last time that we visited, for their Finding Dory event over the summer, and then to top it off, they were getting to have a little chat with Santa. Now going into Birmingham in December can be a little chaotic, but we had no problems. I’d suggest going early, if possible, to avoid too much traffic Read more >
