With the cost of living rising and the price of food, bills and fuel soaring, we can all try to do our best at budgeting and living as economically as possible. If that’s by meal planning, trying to use our cars less or by turning down the heating by half a degree, it all helps the budget. One of my bugbears is food waste as we are all guilty of buying too much of something or forgetting about something in the back of the fridge and then having to throw it away.

we moved into our old house in 2007, we moved from a rented and furnished flat. The only furniture we owned was a bed that I had kept at my parent’s house. We were fortunate at the time that we could afford to carry on renting the flat for a couple of months while we started doing renovations to the house and moved the little bit of stuff we had in gradually, needing only our car to transport it.

What better way to spend a Saturday afternoon with family than going to the circus! We were lucky enough to be invited to Europe’s largest touring show – Gandeys Circus on the Forest Recreation Ground.

Having said that, we were given the chance to try out and review the VAX ONEPWR Blade 4 Cordless Vacuum. I was so delighted and here’s why:
A few years ago, an Australian couple made the news as they appeared in court where they pleaded guilty to failing to provide for a child and causing serious injury. The child was malnourished. In the press, much was made of the family’s vegan diet, but the court acknowledged that the mother’s depression had played a significant role in the poor care given to the child.
