The Smoking Lung

In Association with Health On LineĀ  When Husband and I met, we’d both been smokers for some time, despite being in our early and mid-twenties. I come from a family of smokers, and Husband’s families had all been smokers when he was younger, so it was no real surprise that we started smoking at young ages. I can’t speak for him, but I smoked a lot – I’d have a cigarette in my hand as …

We’re Going to Anfield!

We’re Going to Anfield!

You may or may not know (especially if you follow me on Twitter and happen to notice my tweets on match days!) that us Crammonds are fans of Liverpool FC. Husband has been a life-long fan of the club, following in his Dad’s footsteps and I started watching LFC when we became a couple. I’d always been a football fan; my Dad used to take to me to watch our local Ryman League team, which …

Maternity Wear from Zalando

Maternity Wear from Zalando

Today is the first time that I’ve really felt like I have a bump. People have remarked on my shape and I keep insisting it’s mainly just fat, but according to my nearest and dearest I absolutely look pregnant. I’m still wearing a lot of my normal clothes, but it’s getting to a point where I’m having to think about maternity clothes. Luckily, a while ago the lovely people at Zalando gave me the chance …

Sausage Tests Mini Boden

Sausage Tests Mini Boden

A couple of weeks ago, the lovely people from Boden got in touch and asked if Sausage would like to choose some clothes from the Mini Boden autumn/winter range to try out, and obviously we said a big fat YES! Here’s what she chose: Sausage actually has great taste when it comes to clothes, although everything on the Mini Boden site is absolutely gorgeous, so it wasn’t difficult for her to make excellent choices. The …

Sausage the Super Nerd!

Sausage the Super Nerd!

Commissioned Post Since Sausage has been back at school, there’s no doubt that she’s 100% happier in her new class. The work seems to be engaging her on a whole new level, she’s powering through the reading books and I think is probably almost ready to move up to Level 5 of the Oxford Reading Tree, which shows that she’s made great progress since moving up to Level 4 at the end of the last …

Fat Face Women’s Gilet Review

Fat Face Women’s Gilet Review

I love being a blogger, especially when great opportunities come my way, or a company asks me if I’d like to try their product. What is sometimes even nicer is when something turns up in the post from a company which is a complete surprise, which is exactly what happened to me last week. I got a knock on the door and a very nice courier handed me a parcel from Fat Face, the company …

Boyfriends and Girlfriends

Boyfriends and Girlfriends

Sausage is now in year one of primary school and she’s settled back into things brilliantly. She’s responding really well to the more structured aspect of year one, compared with the ever-so-slight ‘free for all’ feel that reception class had and she seems to get on well with 99% of the kids in her class, as well as having some close friends that she spends time with. She only turned 5 a month before starting …

Keeping Sausage Safe On the ‘Net

Keeping Sausage Safe On the ‘Net

Commissioned Post If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that we’re a pretty techy household. Husband and I love our gadgets and Sausage has followed suit – no great surprises there! She’s been using our phones since she was old enough to swipe a screen and her level of proficiency is truly impressive. For her birthday, back in August, Husband and I decided that it was about time that she had her own computer, rather …

Get Your Groove on with Nest Pensions!

Commissioned Post Nest Pensions got in touch with me and asked if I’d post this video for them on my blog, and after watching the awesome lady getting her groove on, I just had to share it. I certainly hope I’m still dancing like this when I’m in my 70’s (shh, let’s not mention that I can’t even dance that well NOW!)

Model Making Gives Kids a Real Sense of Achievement

Model Making Gives Kids a Real Sense of Achievement

Commissioned Post Model making is something that children used to do a lot of, and kits which produce planes, trains and animals were once part of every child’s toy box. A recent reliance on technology has meant that parents are opting to give their young ones a tablet computer or smart phone to play on, but nothing compares to the interactive nature of modelling kits. An engaging activity Kids can really engage with something that …
