Now is the perfect time to get your boiler checked

When was the last time you had your boiler checked? We annually have a check in the summer before we start using it again, but now is a great time to get it looked over.

British Gas have asked me what is the weirdest thing in our home or in anyone elses for that matter.  I have to say that we are not that weird a family and have nothing unusual in our home.

However,  my inlaws are farmers, so the weirdest thing would have to be a calf!  When the husband was growing up they used to feed baby lambs that had been orphaned too, but now they are only dairy farmers.

Can you imagine the things that engineers see when they go into peoples houses.  Why not take a look at what Sarah saw on one of her jobs. 

When I was growing up I remember my Dad taking apart a motorbike in the dining room, safe to say my Mum was not amused! 

I do wonder though what people might think when they come in to our home and there are six little boys all being noisy (as my friends boys are often here too)! 

Do you have anything odd in your home?

Bissell Vac and Steam Machine Review and Giveaway

I have hard floors downstairs which I love.  They are much more practical than carpet with 2 mucky boys and a dog. Over the past 8 years I have tried all sorts of ways to keep them clean and I think I have finally found the product that does that for me. It is the  Bissell Vac and Steam Machine .  This amazing suel action machine vacuums and steam cleans either independently or at the same time.  It means that I have done away with my vacuum and steam cleaner downstairs (which I gave to my brother in law). What I like: You can either vacuum or steam clean or do both It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre The handle is adjustable great for a home with people of different heights and for getting the kids involved. You need no chemicals The pads are washable and reusable It comes with a two year guarantee It warms up fast (within 30 seconds) so no long wait to start cleaning It costs under £100 It is space saving.  No need for a separate vacuum, steam cleaner or mop.
