I shop on-line a lot. I feel like I rarely shop in actual shops, in fact! I buy things for the kids, the home, gifts for people, toys, clothes, food shopping – yep, pretty much everything, all on-line. If I’m looking for DVDs, CDs, games, toys, quirky gifts, I think to check and see what Ratuken’s Play.com has to offer. They tend to have great prices and a huge range on offer. And it seems that things have just got even better over there, as they have recently launched not only a Home and Garden category, but also Hobbies and Crafts, Pets, and even Groceries. They have their #ReasonsToShop campaign running at the moment to celebrate the launch of these new departments and to spread the word, and so they got in touch with me to help with that word-spreading.
I had a mooch about in the Home and Garden category, as I’m really getting into my gardening now, and I needed a few new things for the house, too. I have to say, I got sucked in a bit, as there’s loads there, with so many well-known brands, too. I knew that I needed a new iron, as after many years, mine has pretty much packed in now, and so I chose…
It’s really good! Ironing is by far my least favourite chore around the house. I tend to do it pretty much every day, basically as soon as I have got my washing in, I iron it, so that it doesn’t build up, as then I really hate it. Now, I’m not going to tell you that this iron has now made me enjoy this, most tedious and tiresome of tasks, but, it has made it a lot faster and easier, and so for that I am extremely thankful!
And I then chose this…
This one might actually be a life-changer! Before opting for one of these, I took to trusty Twitter for a few opinions and the response was a little overwhelming! It seems that a slow-cooker is a ‘must’ in many, many homes, and so I thought we’d best get on it! We have used it, trying out Pulled Pork for our first attempt, and my, was it good! If you’ve yet to succumb and get one, I can say that they are very easy to use, apparently use less energy than a conventional oven, and make cooking for the family, easy and tasty. So yes, it seems a slow cooker is necessary in our lives, and we didn’t even know it 😉
