Making Meal Times Easier With AO.com

Not too long ago our 7+ year old microwave died. What we thought was an exploded meal was actually rust and it just wasn’t working as well as it should. It took quite some time to actually think about how old that microwave was and we still can’t decide. Either I bought it while I was at university or John bought it when he first moved into our old flat. Whichever it was, it was really old and I think the cheapest we could get at the time. It certainly wasn’t anything special. It wasn’t even digital. Luckily, AO.com came to

Minimising Ironing Time With AO.com

In our house John does the ironing. It is my absolute most hated job and I only really do it once in a while if John has been working a lot or if it’s taking over the world. Unfortunately, with a cheap iron that gets a limescale build up too easily, this horrid chore can take a lot longer than it should do. Instead of replacing our battered, old iron with something similar, AO.com sent us the Morphy Richards Power Steam Elite Pressurised Steam Generator Iron. Up until now we have only had a regular, cheap kind of iron so when

Shark Upright Vacuum Cleaner (NV801UK) Review

If you’re anything like me, you’ll be the kind of person who really gets sucks into adverts on television, especially for things like vacuum cleaners. The adverts that always stand out for me the most are those for the Shark vacuum cleaners. I was so happy when we were offered the brand new Shark Upright Vacuum Cleaner (NV801UK) for review. Of course, I jumped at the chance. On the day the Shark upright vacuum cleaner arrived I was literally bouncing with excitement. I know that sounds quite silly but I had heard such good things about this brand and couldn’t wait

Phillips Performer Active Vacuum Cleaner Review

We have had plenty of vacuum cleaners in the past and some have been better than others. Some have died a natural vacuum cleaner death and some have been so bad that we’ve replaced them quite quickly. The last vacuum cleaner we bought was absolutely awful and we couldn’t even use any of the attachments as they didn’t pick anything up. Kneeling on the floor with the main pipe was not fun! So, when we were offered the Phillips Performer Active vacuum cleaner to try I jumped at the chance. Setting up the vacuum cleaner was an absolute breeze and from

The Washing Machine That Gets Better With Time

A couple of weeks ago I showed you all the amazing new Beko washing machine we received (read the review) and even gave one lucky ready the chance to win one for themselves (enter here: ends 14/12). I very quickly fell in love with the features I had figured out how to use and I kept looking at my wonderfully shiny new machine like it was jewellery. Some appliances though lose their shine after a few weeks and you realise that maybe they’re not as good as what you first thought. That was not the case at all though with

Beko 9kg Freestanding Washing Machine Review & Giveaway

As a busy parent, there are things I hate spending my time doing and one of the biggest is laundry. There might only be me, John and Erin in the house but we get through at least one load a day normally. I don’t even know where it all comes from really. Our washing machine was one of the cheapest on the market as we bought it the week we moved into our house using vouchers we received as wedding presents. It was never anything special and it made one hell of a row. A lot of the time we
