Graco Modes 3 Lite Travel System Review #GenerationGraco

I’ve said it a lot recently – Graco is a name has been trusted by many parents for decades, and by me for almost twenty years now. But it’s been a while since I had a baby small enough to push around on wheels, so when Graco sent over the  Modes 3 Lite Click Connect Travel System I enlisted the help of the lovely Emma with baby Danny to put it through its paces for me. It’s a neat looking system, and like so...

Sorting that Window Condensation with the Vileda Windowmatic

We’ve finally acquiesced to the colder weather, and the central heating is running a couple of times a day. And obviously we want to keep the house as insulated as possible to keep in as much of that heat as we can. Like a lot of people our 1980’s radiator system has the radiators themselves located right underneath the windows – meaning if we’re not careful all that lovely heat goes whisking up on the cold...

The Vax Cordless SlimVac | Review

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. But actually? *whispers* it’s the...

The London Dungeon with a 9yr old? | Merlin Annual Pass

Way back when our gurt big hulking teens were just little boys, we were on holiday camping in Yorkshire. We planned to spend a day exploring in York, and while there we had the grand plan to visit the York Dungeons – I mean, how scary could it really be? I had roughty-toughty-non-scarable boys, it’d be fun. Hmmmm. Within ten minutes (after ignoring the dubious warnings at the ticket desk) I had to beat a hasty retreat,...

Surprisingly Fab Clothing for Girls (from Nutmeg. Who knew?)

I know, Morrisons possibly isn’t the first place you’d think of taking your 9yr old daughter clothes shopping, is it? But think again, ladies. I’m a total convert! Take a look at these… This is the Navaho Blouse (to be honest I’m loving the entire Navaho range), and it’s available in ages 5-13yrs for just £7. The fabric is soft and flowing, and the embroidery detail at the top is gorgeous. The...

The Very Best Sheepskin Mule Slippers. Fact.

It’s that time of year again – the time of year when the hunt for the very best sheepskin mule slippers begins again. I’m not ashamed to say I’m a bit of a slipper freak. I don’t know if it’s a simple fact of getting older (and colder), or if I was just a late developer (in my youth I detested them; spent my time barefoot, only opting for socks on cold toes if absolutely necessary) But now I...
