My dream cooker would be a range cooker

My dream cooker would be a range cooker

As you may know we are selling our house, or put it another way trying to. But of course like anyone who is selling you can’t help but look at your next move possibilities online. The joys of the internet means I have rather a lot of properties saved to tease and tempt me, and wish even more that our house would sell a bit quicker! One of my biggest shudders is a house I like … Read entire article »

Twinings for Christmas gifts

Who remembers their Grandparents having lovely tea caddies. My Grandparents did, it was black with a Chinese theme to it. It stored loose tea which one of my Granny’s always used. She had another tea caddy which always housed, no not tea but digestive biscuits, never any other biscuit were ever in there. Which is why I particularly like the gorgeous tea caddies filled with Twinings Christmas tea. Not only do who ever is lucky enough … Read entire article »

Morphy Richards Breeze Iron

Morphy Richards Breeze Iron

When Janelle ask if I would like to review the Breeze iron it was tempting to just say can I pass. But obviously as I knew when I was lucky enough to be chosen to be a ‘Morphy Richards Innovator’ that an iron would come up. After all an iron was one of the items that inspired Morphy Richards to start out with back in 1935 and 1937 brought their first electric iron. Those who have … Read entire article »

Back from camping and….

Back from camping and….

It was great, everything was relaxed and easy. The gas behaved itself, not sure why I was worried about that but most of all Oz and I had loads of fun. The tent went up with no swearing (!), the campsite was lovely. We camped in the open field so only a few tents there (perfect), the loo’s were clean and I only queued the once!!! The shower was slightly less than powerful and I … Read entire article »

Meal Planning Monday

Meal Planning Monday

Well the week whizzed past last week and I can’t believe we are here on Monday again. I stuck to the meal plan except yesterday we swapped roast for homemade asparagus and tomato Quiche. Gluten free and very tasty, I actually baked it blind first which I never usually do as it seems a bit of a faff but it really made a difference. As it is half term and the run up to Bex’s birthday … Read entire article »

Gold Medalists

Royal Mail throughout the year always do some wonderful stamps. Apart from a very brief stamp collection when younger we don’t as such collect stamps. But I have to say I think the Gold Medallists stamps are very exciting. Royal Mail will be producing a stamp for every Great Britain team Gold Medal winner in the Olympic Games London 2012.  Not only that, they will be available in 500 selected Post offices across the U.K the very next day and some post offices will open on Sundays just for this. Then the stamps will be available to a further 4500 Post offices after that. The image on the stamps will be where possible a photo of the Gold Medal winner or winning team in action from their Gold Medal winning final or … Read entire article »

I Love – (or not)

I love to tidy my house for someone to view it but not turn up. I love walking the dogs in the rain for over an hour in the evening while we wait for you to not turn up. I love the flannel the estate agents tell you. I love the way they think you don’t have a single brain cell. I love the way errors are just brushed aside. I love the fact my house was special and showed at a London property show just like all of your property’s. I love the way I was told to make up for the long line of mistakes that have been made. I love the way my property forgot to get uploaded to this show. I love the fact that I pointed it out but didn’t get a sorry. I … Read entire article »
