Casdon Toy Dyson Cord-free Vacuum Cleaner Review

They say that children copy what their parents/elders do. So I’m chuffed that Cameo loves to sweep, hoover and clean up. I feel like we never do enough of it, so I guess it feels like we must do if he has picked up on it. So our house can’t be that messy after all! He is definitely at the stage where he wants to copy everything we do. One of the funniest is hovering. We bought him a little hoover from a charity shop last year, unfortunately, it didn’t work but he still loved moving it around. So you…

My Plus Size Pregnancy – Our Conception Story

So it’s about time I start answering some of your questions about being plus size and pregnant. This is the first of many posts that I plan to write and I hope it answers some of your questions.

Review: Youngs Seafood Simply Bake Cod Fillet

Let’s break my home life down a little. With a 2-year-old and a 6-month-old to look after, a house to run and a full-time self-employed person… it’s almost a wonder how I actually make it through each day. Sometimes when Cameo goes to bed and Marlo has an evening nap I literally sit on the sofa almost stunned. Before going to clean the milk bottles, tidy the toys away and then getting out the laptop to work. This isn’t a one-off thing. This is pretty much every day. So guess what I’m sometimes guilty of? Oven food. That’s what. What…

How to save money when moving house

Moving house is famously stressful. The prospect of packing up your whole life and relocating it is daunting – and that’s before you start worrying about the cost of movers, sorting out all your utilities again, and covering the hidden costs that inevitably pop up, such as Wi-Fi and utility installation, cleaning products, and charges for any unforeseen eventualities. Trust me, I moved cities last year and I definitely learnt a lesson or two. With a little planning, you can drastically reduce the amount of money you spend on moving house. Here’s how.
