Big Night In Challenge

Good afternoon, I haven’t heard of Two little fleas before, but they certainly got my attention with this competition to win £750 of John Lewis vouchers. I have heard of Little Stuff though, so I’m in. The idea is to write a post about what you can spend £750 on to have the best “big night in”. As I don’t really do going out, I figured I’d have a go at this. Firstly, I need some housework doing…. I hit google and had a look at prices and it will cost about £150 to spring clean this place. And I want a BBQ as mine went to heaven (might have been via a scrap metal collectors van). This one at Argos seems ok, not too show off-ish but functional. Then I obviously need food and drinkies? We have a Sodastream so I would buy 3 more flavour mixes (at average […]

Happy Campers 3

The last few days we have been camping in Devon, hence the silence from myself on social media. I get ordinary phone signal, but 3G has gone on holiday round these parts. We are staying on the River Dart country park. It is nice, we are pitched under the overhang of a sycamore tree, all around us is more family tents.


Camping checklist 1

Morning folks, as I recently wrote I’m going camping very soon. Sunday in fact, its come around fast. I don’t know about my blog readers but I always feel we have forgotten something, so I’m going to write a list hopefully others might find helpful. I know we aren’t typical campers as we move in for a fortnight on site, so for shorter trips you can do away with much of this. Things to do before you go….Empty fridge of anything open/perishable. Try to take with you or freeze instead.Wash up and empty dishwasher so doesn’t smell stagnant when you get home.Have UHT milk in cupboard and bread in freezer so you don’t need to shop on way home.Do as much washing as you can so its not left dirty.Arrange someone to feed pets.Clean pet’s hutches before going.Unplug everything except fridge, freezer and TV digi box / sky so can […]


Slightly overdue… Australia 2

A month ago I landed back in Blighty after going to the land down under. Well I think I will honestly struggle to get across how much I loved it, and how I truly miss the place after such a fleeting visit. I soooooooo want to go back, I wish I could. On 4th November I took off from Heathrow, after a minor strop about Qantas seating plans…. my second holiday via plane, and they’d put me alone… away from my friend. Cue me, stamping, crying and talking to myself. I’m not a brat, but was stressful having the ITV DayBreak cameras there, emotions were getting out of hand. Qantas had little choice, I was stood ON my seat until a reshuffle took place. :-/ my Mate Jacki stayed calm, fair play to her, I know I’m annoying! It was hours and hours of flying.. we arrived in Sydney late […]
