Hello School!

Libby was only two in June, but already we are starting to get concerned about her going to school. Our local school isn’t a place that I’d like to send her to, and getting into a different one is going to be difficult and may involve a house move. We will need to apply next year, and if we only get offered our local school I’ll home-school Libby until we manage to move to somewhere with a nice school. One of the best chances she’ll have of getting into a nice local school is if she goes to the nursery,…

Making the cut – a knife review

I have been lucky enough to review a few products from Ozeri over the past few months and I am learning a lot about quality. All of the products I have reviewed have been of a much higher quality than anything I would have bought myself. That’s why I was so delighted when I was asked to review a knife set, the Elite Chef Black Ceramic 3-Piece Knife Set. As you can imagine, I was even more delighted when they arrived and they were THIS shiny!  The knives and the blades are black, and yet they are shiny enough to…

Right at…

Fact. Background: As a child, I never really learnt to cook. That meant that my culinary skills developed at university, where I bought the most basic pots and pans and started to learn the basics of survival cookery. When I bought my own home, I didn’t have the money to buy furniture, let alone pots and pans and even now, I still have some of the…

A New Drink Experience

A few days ago we were watching TV when an advert came on for Robinson’s Squash’d. My husband and I discussed what a great idea we thought it was and how we’d liked to try it. In a strange twist of fate, I was then offered the opportunity to review the product. Robinson’s Squash’d is a very concentrated squash in a tiny bottle. Because it is so concentrated, you only need to squeeze the bottle gently into a glass of water to make an excellent tasting drink of squash.  Personally, I don’t drink a lot of squash because I’m happy enough…
