Product Review & Giveaway: Ice Cube Trays and Whistling Tea Kettle

As you know I love trying out new products. My latest products are the Vremi Silicone Ice Cube Trays with Lids and the Vremi Whistling Tea Kettle. During our house move a few months back I lost the ice cube tray we had, it was the one that came with the fridge so a bog standard one. Being asked to review the Vremi Silicone ones has come at the right time!

My first impression is how bendy they are. Yeah they are really flexible and I was a bit dubious on filling them with water to begin with. I do like the idea of the lid that comes with them. It’s ideal for portioning up homemade baby food to freeze.

Income and Stats Report for September 2017

I apologise for being a few days late with last month’s income report. I’ve had so much work on it’s been nigh on impossible to keep up. Plus last week baby girl was really ill. The worst she has ever been. She had some horrendous virus that caused a high temperature and vomiting then a horrid rash came out. I had to take time off from my day job at short notice which isn’t the best. I don’t get paid if I don’t go in.  Luckily when baby girl was napping I cracked on with some blog work to cover my loss in wages.

Anyway here we are at my Income and Stats report for September 2017.

(If you never caught up with last month’s you can find that one here)

How To Prepare a Guest Bedroom

With less than 12 weeks until Christmas it’s time to start thinking about preparing for guests staying with you. Most people have family members stay with them over Christmas and we are no exception. My sister lives in Canada but always comes home for Christmas. She normally spends time at mum’s and with us, but because we moved into our new house back in June, the guest bedroom still needs some love. It’s the one room we use to dump unpacked boxes in!

By taking part in Bed Guru’s #GuestBedReady campaign it gives me the perfect excuse to declutter the room.  Get it to how I want it to be – the perfect guest bedroom to get a great night’s sleep!

The main focus of a guest bedroom is of course the bed. I always prefer a normal divan bed for the spare bedroom because they can come with storage drawers underneath which is perfect for storing the spare bedding. Bed Guru has a great selection of guest beds to suit any guest bedroom.

Our Families Need Us: Protect Your Family by Knowing What to Do After an Accident

We all know what to do to protect our families before an accident occurs. Three good ways are to make sure everyone wears their seat belts, ensure that your vehicle is in top condition, and focus on driving. But no matter what precautions we take, accidents are almost inevitable. The good news is that it is even easier to protect your family after an accident than it is before the collision.

Protect Your Family By Knowing What To Do In An Accident

One phone call to a personal injury lawyer representing clients to protect them is usually all it takes. The attorney can then take care of the rest, from the medical attention your family needs today to the financial compensation they need tomorrow.
