Pest Deterrents for Your Home

Throughout the year, our homes and gardens may have involuntarily invited a few unwanted visitors.

When it comes to pest control, prevention is key. The worst issues tend to occur in the warmer months, so to get ahead of the game here are some effective...

3 for 2 Christmas Lighting & Decorations at Clas Ohlson!

With less than a month to go, we’re all thinking about it now; I’ve even seen a few trees already going up in my Instagram feed (TOO EARLY people!). But if there’s one thing I’ve learned over the years, it’s that thinking about the preparations a little ahead saves time and head space as things gear up through December.

When you have a big family who are home all day, plus a ridiculously hairy dog (honestly, we thought Rottweilers were short haired and a no-mess kind of pet. Huh. No one warned us they have a double coat which they shed completely twice a year – six years now, and we’re still flabbergasted at the amount of hair that drifts off her every 6mths) vacuuming is a bit of an endless chore.

How do YOU unwind around the home?

Furniture specialists Rattan Direct need your help – well, just your opinion actually (and let’s be honest, we all know how much you love to share your opinion); they’re trying to find out exactly how parents are choosing to relax and unwind around the house. I know, I laughed too at the very idea of a long relaxing unwind at the end of the day. But actually, it was interesting – I hadn’t really stopped...
