I’ll be honest, when I agreed to work for with You Have to Laugh  as part of their Smile Squad (yes it turns out there are other hilarious bloggers out there – do check it out) I didn’t think it would involve such inane crap.  What have I let myself in for? Anyway, they tagged me in a 12 questions thingamyjig so I suppose I’ll just get on with it. The best part is that because I’m posting it on my own site they can’t change it to say anything like they’re really funny and good looking….yep they do that 1) Fill in the gap: BeforeRead More →

The service from Tesco Direct and their delivery company Arrow was great.  We were kept informedRead More →

It’s been a while since I used a sunbed but my Bestie is getting married next weekend so I thought I’d treat myself to a course.  I’ve left it a bit late but hey ho!  Anyway, once you step in the shop it all comes flooding back.  If you’ve never been before I’ve put together a little guide – 1) If you wear glasses you might not be able to see the START and STOP buttons.  Locate these prior to taking off your glasses and entering the booth 2) If, like me, you’re a “sturdy girl” never, ever use the lie down beds.  Your boobs andRead More →
