Making Life Easier for the Elderly

Making Life Easier for the Elderly

I’ve written before about my Grandad John and what an amazing grandad he was, but he was a really remarkable person in a lot of other ways, too. He was intelligent and hard-working, and a great Dad to my Dad and his brothers, but I think his remarkableness really came into its own after my Nan died and his own health deteriorated. He was on his own for over ten years and had to learn …

Rubbish Clearance Waste Management Improved By Clearabee

Rubbish Clearance Waste Management Improved By Clearabee

Besides a rubbish clearance bin, most UK citizens have a “single stream” recycling container in which they put all their recyclables. This includes everything from plastic juice bottles to discarded toys. Paper, plastic, and glass are all mixed together. Other countries, such as the United States, use single stream curbside recycling too because citizens tend to be lazy so they prefer not having to separate out the different types of recyclables they bin and the …

I find myself bogged down with work and commercial posts sometimes, so having the opportunity to actually write something personal seemed too good to pass up. So, here …

Who Can Foster?

Who Can Foster?

Can members of the LGBT community foster? It is a common question and one that comes with a positive answer. Being a foster carer is about personal qualities, rather than sexual orientation or gender. Foster children present an array of diverse and complex needs, and that means foster carers from all walks of life are needed.

Things To Consider When Buying a Family Car

Things To Consider When Buying a Family Car

Last year, we decided that our old Volvo was probably on it’s last legs and needed replacing. We were on a bit of a budget and managed to find a Ford Focus on a 52 plate which was within our price, but ultimately it’s not been the perfect car for us, so we’re looking for something new. I have certain criteria when looking for used cars and I thought I’d share them with you in …

What To Do in 3 Steps if Your Car Gets a Ding

What To Do in 3 Steps if Your Car Gets a Ding

Car Dings – Three Vital Steps! We have all been there at some point. We step out from home, work or the supermarket and find that some kind soul has left a scratch, dent or ‘ding’ on our car. A dented door, a cracked bumper or a horrible knock in the boot might seem like the end of the world. It’s certainly true that it’s a major inconvenience, but thankfully, with a few common sense …
