A Fathers Day gift for a grumpy old git

Last year, Prezzybox treated my dad to some gorgeous Father’s Day gifts. Fast forward to a few weeks ago, and dad had a strange request. He was so impressed with his shoe shine kit that he wanted another one. Or more specifically, he wanted another shoe-shining sponge. Cue an email to the very understanding marketing assistant at Prezzybox. Much to her amusement, I asked how to get hold of another shoe shine sponge.

A review and giveaway of Meg Heath bespoke dog leads and collars

Bubbles is one of the most incredible dogs I’ve ever met. She’s totally submissive to other dogs, obedient to us and even does as she’s told by the children. She’s the perfect running companion and a fabulous playmate for both Pluto and the girls. She knows basic commands and always comes when she’s called. Her beautiful nature is likely to be due to her breed – she’s a crossbreed but mainly Staffordshire bull terrier. And along with the incredible attributes her breed possess, she has also inherited the one bad habit. She pulls terribly on the lead. So did I want…
