Charley Says – a New Campaign

One of my fondest childhood memories is the safety campaign “Charley Says” so I was really excited to learn that Electrical Safety First is to revive the nation’s favourite safety characters and reduce electrical accidents in the home.

Through a series of new adventures and near misses Charley the cat and his hapless young owner will teach the need for electrical safety in the home by highlighting what not to do.   The original Charley Says …

A Kitchen Story

When we bought our house in 2005 it is safe to say that we didn’t buy it for the kitchen.

Garden Revamp

Despite promising that last year was going to be the year we finally revamped our garden, it never happened for all sorts of reasons.  I was out of action after having a caesarian, hubby was always at work and we were having lots of fun enjoying a rare hot summer at the beach. I am determined that this year it will get done. The one thing we are really missing is a patio / decking area where we can sit and relax outside.  I toyed with the idea of decking, but having seen my neighbour slip on hers and badly …
