I know I don’t mention it on the blog as much as I used to, but I am a cyclist. Okay, I have a car now so cycle less but I still like my two wheels as a choice. I didn’t like having to cycle regardless of tiredness, weather, and lack of coinage for bus fare. When I cycle now it’s like a nice little explore not a mad dash to get somewhere fast, pulling a tailgator and a grumpy child. Whatever the reason you cycle you really can make a few safety improvements dirt cheap. Lights, high-viz kit, a basic bike tool set, a splash of oil for the chain, and a set of new brake blocks. These are all low cost, but some things really are worth the extra. HELMETS!
When I was at the Manics gig this weekend Freya woof was in doggy daycare. Sadly whilst on “the common” with her sitter she lost her tags. When we first adopted her she came with a yellow tag with a password that finds her details in a dog database.

Two tags I like, engraved and delivered in 3 days for £6.50. The heart replaces her yellow tag, mentioning she has a microchip so if found full details […]
As you might have heard me mention before, I use discounts and deals sites. Things like cash back sites (see my side bar) and group buying deals sites. Well there is a new kid on the block, and I think it’s going to be HUGE. I would like to introduce you to Daily Deal Superstore. At the moment the site hasn’t got much publicity but I wouldn’t be surprised if you see it advertised on big websites soon, it is such a neat idea. It’s like a comparison site crossed with a deal site. Can you imagine Groupon, SavvyMums, KGB deals, Wowcher and lots of other daily deal sites, all in one site?? How about daily deal sites you have not even heard of yet? If there is a deal to be had, you can find it. Well it is that! I’m in, I think it is a brilliant idea to […]
