Sponsored Post Are you getting excited about the Olympics? No, me neither. If you live in London, it’s hard to escape the conclusion that moving around the city in August will be like doing a triathalon for all us regular citizens, let alone the athletes themselves. And if you don’t live in London, it’s still […]

Sponsored Post I don’t need to tell you that times are hard. I sometimes wonder how other people manage. I sometimes wonder how I manage mysefl! One way I make ends meet is, occasionally, to do a sponsored post, like this one, which is going to be all about yummy Barclaycard. Ok then, so Barclaycard is […]

Sponsored video – I’ll drink to that

Sponsored post It seems like only yesterday that I was having arguments with my girls about orange juice. No, they couldn’t have orange juice on demand, at any moment of the day or night, I used to tell them. My position was that it was bad for their teeth and water is the best drink […]

Staying sane through divorce

Sponsored guest post I hardly ever let anyone write a post for me – 99.9 per cent of the witterings you see here are mine alone. But I really liked this post by Carly Morson, suggesting clever ways of keeping yourself together during that whole splitting up/divorcing process. Hope you find it useful. Staying sane […]

Play your cards right …

Sponsored post We’ve just gone through many, many days with the children at home on holiday. And virtually every one of those days, Child One would walk to the local Rymans to feed her seemingly insatiable stationery addiction. Now, I don’t mind this at all. She is a very studious child and, in fact, I […]

Do you need a life laundry moment?

Sponsored post I probably shouldn’t admit this, but one of my most favourite ever TV shows was the Life Laundry. If I were ever offered the chance between seeing a brand new episode of, say, the brilliant, tense, taughtly-plotted Homeland, or an old episode of the Life Laundry, I’d go for LL every time. Yes, […]

Sponsored Post A while ago I told you about the Channel 4 show, Home of the Future, which is co-funded by  gas and power provider E.ON, as part of its E.ON Innovation crowdsourcing project. Though the show has finished, it produced some brilliant ideas from the public, from the practical – like an insulated kettle – to the […]

Pondering parking

Sponsored post I used to be quite a good driver back in Brussels. I could park on a postage stamp (you had to – parking there is a blood sport), I could nip and tuck through the traffic with surgical precision, and I scarcely ever got a scratch on my car. But here in Blighty […]

Milking it ….

It’s time to confess. I’ve always hated supermarket shopping. Now I hate internet shopping, too. I know, how lazy can one woman get? But it’s true. There are so many pitfalls to internet shopping – there was the time when I got six kilos of bananas delivered, instead of just six actual bananas, and had […]

Dalani Home & Living Competition

  Have you ever wondered how some people just have the knack of collecting lovely, designery bits and bobs around them, without appearing to break the bank, or even spend days schlepping around the shops? Chances are there is more than luck and good taste to it. They are probably members of one of the […]
