The House That Hates Us

You ever think that maybe you bought the wrong house? That’s me quite a lot of the time this year. When we bought our house 4 years ago we knew that it needed a lot of work doing to it, which was partly why we were able to afford to buy it. We started off really well and had some massive jobs done early on like changing the fuse board and having the electrics tested. We also completely gutted the back garden, had new fences, turf and decking. Then, we ripped out 2 bedrooms and had them completely re-plastered and

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

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).

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

Reducing Food Waste With A Fridgemaster Fridge

It’s true what they say about teething puppies; they try to eat anything they can. When Jackson was a little puppy he literally did try to eat whatever he could get his sharp teeth on and that included the corners of our fridge and freezers. We have galley kitchen and all under the counter appliances and he pretty much tried to eat all of them! Unfortunately, we no longer have Jackson with us as he had to be re homed and it’s time to start replacing some appliances as and when we can. This month we got a new Fridgemaster
