Daylight savings = smoke alarm check

As daylight savings approaches, this typically is when we swap out our smoke alarm batteries.   We always used to swap them out twice a year, none of this testing nonsense for us.  We simply just swap the batteries out and be done for another 6 months.  Invariably, if we didn’t swap them out, rest … Continue reading

My workmates snore … the joy of working from home …

I work in IT and the company I work for is encouraging us to work out of the office more – at home, at a clients location and just to basically hot desk where we can find a space. Its definitely a change in company culture and personal habit and while I’ve worked from home … Continue reading

When we are on holiday, we try to be sensible (for the most part) about what we eat.  What could be better than a nice healthy Egg Salad on Wheat sandwich?  Slightly horrifying when reading the ingredients label.  This is why I prefer to make my food from scratch. If you are what you eat, … Continue reading

I am average, and its ok!

Although I try to avoid advertising, its impossible to escape from the seemingly contact barage of adverts trying to make us buy products to make us younger, more beautiful and slimmer. I can only assume that some people are really stupid enough to fall for this bullshit? There is no miracle cream or pill that … Continue reading
