Moving Home: What to expect

Moving Home: What to expect

It’s universally accepted that moving home is one of the most stressful things you will ever do, so imagine doing it only 2 weeks before your baby is born! Well, that is exactly what I did and to say it was a stress filled nightmare would be an understatement. Although my last move was an extreme case I did learn a lot from it, predominantly that I never want to move again! My previous moves were all equally enlightening in their own ways, so here is my guide to what you should expect when moving home. Making an offer: When […]

Laundry solutions with Laundrapp

Laundrapp laundry service

I’ve always struggled with the whole Domestic Goddess thing. I’m not very good at cleaning, hoovering happens when the dust bunnies start to form rival tribes, and if it wasn’t for the dishwasher we would probably be eating off of paper plates! Sadly my skills at handling the laundry are no improvement on this. The washing tends to get done when someone runs out of clothes, and even then it is no guarantee that said wash will result in clean clothes as they sometimes end up in what I like to think of as a groundhog cycle, where I put […]

Hyping Up Hive – The Conclusion

British Gas Miss-selling Article www.grumpymum.co.uk

Read Part 1 HERE On the 7th December I wrote an article about the terrible miss-selling practices that I had witnessed British Gas engineers employ in order to get me to part with £150 to £250 to purchase a Hive smart thermostat. I was shocked that 5 different engineers advised me that I would need to have Hive installed to replace my faulty thermostat instead of replacing it with a free analogue model, which was similar to the thermostat I already had. After some investigation I discovered that British Gas engineers were indeed able to replace the thermostat with a […]

British Gas Hyping Up Hive

British Gas Miss-selling Article www.grumpymum.co.uk

When the Grumpy family moved into our new home a few weeks before Grumpy Baby’s arrival, things were hectic to say the least. There was an endless stream of companies to inform and DIY jobs to be done, so when British Gas offered me a free boiler service if I signed up to their HomeCare package, I jumped at the chance of ticking one more thing off my list. The next day the engineer arrived and gave my boiler a clean bill of health with two exceptions. There was a small leak on one of the valves and the thermostat […]

Sweeping Autumn Tree Wall Sticker – Review

Tree Wall Sticker Review www.grumpymum.co.uk

What is it? The sweeping autumn tree wall sticker is a vinyl wall decoration for indoor use. About the product The first thing I should mention about this product is that I didn’t get what I paid for! I was under the impression I was buying a wall sticker from Design Devil, a UK company who make high quality wall stickers. Unfortunately their advert had been hijacked by a Chinese company who were selling cheap Chinese reproductions which are no where near the same quality. It is the cheap reproduction that I will be reviewing, however the design is beautiful […]

Review: Currys PC World Delivery Service

Currys PC World Review www.grumpymum.co.uk

I know I’m getting old because I get truly excited about things like buying new white goods, so today was a little like Christmas come early. After moving into our new house a few months ago it became apparent that the built in appliances left a lot to be desired. The fridge alternated between freezing and warming its content for reasons best known to itself, the freezer liked to randomly turn into an iceberg and the dishwasher didn’t! Time for a trip to Currys, but only because they are the only appliance and electrical specialist left on the high street. […]
