The Story Of Us-On My Husband’s Birthday

Today is the 28th of January-which is also known as my Husband’s Birthday-his 32nd this year!

When prepping my work for this month, and getting his presents and Birthday plans sorted, I realised I’ve never used my website to tell the story of us (me and Hubs, not you and I dear reader).

So, what better day to tell it, than on the day we celebrate another year of his life!

tyre safety

Making every journey safe-tyre safety with Jet Wheel Tyres

I’m sure I don’t need to write a whole new blog post on the laws surrounding tyre treads and when you need to replace tyres on your car.

However, I have come to realise in the last month, following an accident we had while my husband was driving us home on Christmas Day evening, that the gap between a tyre being worn but legal to drive on, and worn to the point of it being illegal, is really very slim.

In actual fact, a legal tyre that you may think is a little worn, might not always be safe to drive on at all!

Courier and delivery companies-when will they get it right?

Last week, I popped a little rant up on my Instagram after I’d had a couple of issues with DPD (courier service).  DPD who claim to be parcel experts had already irritated me with the attempted delivery of a parcel from a company I was reviewing products for, with an “attempted delivery” the week before.  Apparently, I hadn’t been in at the time of delivery, so they left it in my porch, and popped a card through the door.  Unfortunately, there was no card in my door-as I was in at the time, oh, and I don’t even have a porch.

Simply Beach – Swimwear for my future (fitter) body

So, as some of you will know if you’ve read my post about the new Gym I’ve become a member of (you can read it here). 

 

Right now, I’m a size 12-14 (closer to a 14), and, although I don’t class myself as overweight, I don’t yet have the confidence to wear a swimsuit in public, let alone a bikini! Continue reading

What Are Your Favourite Christmas Songs?

So now we’re in December, we can fully enjoy the festive music and dig out the back catalogue of Christmas songs on dusty CD’s (or via spotify/google music/iMusic, which ever takes your fancy).

 

My favourite Christmas song, is definitely Little Drummer Boy-obviously partly because of David Bowie, but also because Bing Crosby really reminds me of my Grandfather.  He doesn’t look like him or even sound like him, something just reminds me of him-maybe its a generational thing.

 

I asked some of my blogger friends their favourite Christmas Songs.

What Are Your Favourite Christmas Movies?

We’re at that time again people-it’s December, it’s time to dig out the Christmas DVD’s, find that dedicated Sky Christmas channel, and circle all of your favourite Christmas movies in the bumper edition, festive TV Guide.

 

My favourite Christmas movie, has to be Polar Express-I love the story of magic, and the possibility of a child losing their belief in the magic of Santa, but ultimately finding it again.  The songs, the animation-it’s all so festive, it’s just perfect.

 

I asked some of my blogger friends their favourite Christmas Movies.

Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? I DO!

Have you ever been asked, what you’d do if you won the lottery?  
Not only have I been asked it often, but I think about the answer often.  That might sound sad, but in this messed up world we live in, and with my run of often less than great luck, daydreaming about becoming a millionaire and the decisions I’d make give me a much needed break from reality!

Let’s Teach Our Girls To Be World Changing Super-Heroes

I’m unsure if any of you saw The Russell Howard Hour episode last week discussing the gender discrimination between girls and boys toys/presents.
I know there’s a lot in the news about gender equality right now, with people picking up on slogans on kids clothes, colours of toys and clothes, and the way gender is described in general, not just with regards to children.
I read it, I hear it, but I have to give Russell Howard the recognition he truly deserves after his speech regarding the gender stereotyping that has become so prominent in today’s society.

If you haven’t already seen it, here it is.

5 Reasons I Deserve A Winter Sun Holiday


Just in case you hadn’t noticed, it’s now Winter!  That means, for those of us that don’t live anywhere hot, it’s the end of shorts (unless you’re a postman), sunglasses (unless you’re one of those people that wear sunnies all year round), and you can deflate the lilos and pop the buckets and spades into storage now-they’re not going to be needed!

Because of the rather swift entrance of the Wintery weather, I’ve decided to give you five reasons, I deserve a Winter sun holiday!
