Don’t do it for me. Do it for The Kids!

Right, readers, listen here. I need a favour. Well, actually a friend of mine needs a favour and I’m calling on YOU to help me! Before I tell you what I want, I want to remind you for a few things: I regularly put up AMAZING competitions to win high end prizes like window cleaners and fanny tighteners, just for your delight. I SELFLESSLY provide you with hilarious commentary on my lack of mothering/housewifery skills, …

Kärcher Window Vac – Review and Giveaway

NOW CLOSED Sometimes I get sent products to review that I’m genuinely excited about trying out and the Kärcher Window Vac is one of them. If you’ve not seen the adverts you’re not watching telly right, the vac is basically like the squeegee thing that you see a professional window cleaner using, except it actually sucks the water up as the blade moves over the glass.

What Has Happened to the Top 40?

One of my earliest memories as a child is singing and dancing with my Mum to ‘Reet Petite’ by Jackie Wilson. It was re-released in the UK in 1986, so I can have been no older than two or three but I adored it and used to get really sad when the plasticine Jackie would melt at the end of the video! When I think about it, many of my memories centre around music. When …

That’s Enough, Steve Carell

Let me begin by saying, I really like Steve Carell. He’s a good actor, I tend to like the roles he plays, he seems like an all-round good stick. But he’s getting on my nerves. So far this week, we’ve heard him doing voices in Despicable Me, Over the Hedge and Horton Hears a Who. It’s not an over-saturation problem as such, like with certain celebs. Like how, a few years ago, I got genuinely …

How A Natural Weight Loss Supplement Left Me Needing Medication for Life

Apologies for the slightly sensationalist title, I felt like a Daily Fail reporter for a second there, but I needed to grab your attention. I know that for every post like this, there’ll be a post extolling the virtues of the very same product, or a person who thinks that we all worry too much and shouldn’t restrict ourselves, but I was asked to share this story by the lovely Lisa at The Mummy Whisperer …

Closer to Nature

Now that Sausage is at school, I’m getting back into the swing of regularly blogging, which includes putting the Closer to Nature linky on here in a timely fashion! My photo this week was taken in my Mum’s garden on Sunday afternoon, and is actually capturing a scientific phenomena as we witnessed it! We called it a ‘rainbow cloud’, but it’s real name is a ‘circumhorizontal arc‘, and Wikipedia describes it as “A circumhorizontal arc is an optical …

Extreme Makeover – Doll’s House Edition

A few months ago, I wrote about my Nan and Grandad, Rene and John, and about the doll’s house they made for me from scratch. This is what I wrote: “It was in this shed that Grandad made my doll’s house. This dolls house was better than any that I have ever, to this day, seen in a shop. The walls were covered with brick-dust and individually pointed with white paint, each brick lovingly created …

Royally Tits Up?

Royally Tits Up?

So, the French press have papped our Kate with her boobies out, eh? A source said this: “There is a feeling of anger and disbelief about these photographs,”  Apparently the Royals are unfamiliar with the lengths that the French papparazi will to to get a picture…*insert smiley for IRONY that hasn’t even been invented yet* Errr, REALLY? Anger…and disbelief? “We feel there has been a red line crossed with regard to publishing these images.” Usually, …

First Day

Today was the day. The day. I woke up an hour before my alarm. Sausage had had a bad dream and got into our bed in the night, so I suspect my early rising was something to do with having her elbow pressing into the back of my head for the previous hour, but I didn’t mind. As I got up, she awoke too and seemed happy enough. She’s a morning person, my kid. In fact, she’s …
