The ideal Laptop for university

If you have been following my blog recently, you will know that we are the very proud parents of a young man off to university this month. We have been busy organising everything he needs to take with him and although we have tried to save money by packing existing possessions, there are some things that have needed replacing. One of those things is his ancient laptop. It has had a good innings, but at five years old and with… Continue Reading “The ideal Laptop for university”

SmART Sketcher Projector Review

smART sketcher

Isaac, Eliza and Sebastian love to draw. In fact, they each have their own doodle pads which are filled with their sketches. Isaac loves to draw cartoon style characters, whereas Eliza tries her best to portray real life.

Karcher FC5 Hardfloor Cleaner Review

The downstairs of our house is all laid with hard flooring, which is great with a young family as it is easier to clean any spills. My only frustration with it, is that I have to sweep, or vacuum and then mop it which doubles the cleaning time. Earlier this month I was sent the Karcher FC5 Hard Floor cleaner which promises to cut my cleaning time in half as it vacuums and mops all in one action. The Karcher FC… Continue Reading “Karcher FC5 Hardfloor Cleaner Review”
