Review: Rookie Retro V2 Roller Boots

Rookie Retro V2 Roller Boot Feature Image

If you’re a child of the 80’s you probably owned a pair of roller boots. Mine were a snazzy black pair with fluorescent panels and wheels. I’d spend hours zipping up and down the path behind my house until my legs hurt from bumping along the uneven pavement. 30 years later, both my skill and stamina have abandoned me, but that didn’t stop me from strapping a new pair of Rookie Retro V2 roller skates to my feet and stumbling outside to see if I’ve still got got it… About the Rookie Retro V2 Roller Boots The Rookie range of […]

Make My Blinds review feature image

Blinds can make a big difference to a room, whether as standalone window dressing or in conjunction with curtains, but getting the right blind can be hassle. If you buy them in a standard size you will be limited in design and may have to spend hours cutting them to size, whereas if you buy them from a bespoke blind fitter you may need to re-mortgage to pay the bill! For this review I’m testing out Make My Blinds, an online store selling made to measure blinds in a wide variety of styles and designs, which won’t break the bank. […]

Review: Carpetright

Review: Carpetright

When we moved into our new home we quickly realised that every room in the house would need to be re-decorated. With Baby due in only a couple of weeks this wasn’t idea but there was one room that I really was looking forward to decorating, the nursery. We completed decorating the majority of the nursery in time for her first birthday, but I couldn’t stand having Baby play on the tatty 10 year old carpet, so it just had to go. Why I chose Carpetright Carpetright are the UK’s leading flooring provider and with stores absolutely everywhere, it’s hard […]

Review: The Cheeky Elf + Giveaway

Review: The Cheeky Elf

With Christmas just around the corner I’m starting to get excited about all the Christmas fun I can get up to with Baby this year. She’s still young but it’s never too early to start Christmas Traditions, so when the opportunity arose to review a Cheeky Elf starter kit I really couldn’t wait. About the elf tradition Back in the 2000’s the elf tradition was born. Suddenly households were buying their children unassuming toy elves which would magically (or through the hard work and planning of many a devious parent) come to life at night and get into all sorts […]

Review: Higher Moor Farm Pod Lodges

In June this year the Grumpy Family visited Higher Moor Farm campsite near Weymouth for the first time and were absolutely blown away by the staff, location, amenities, and cleanliness. In fact, we were so impressed that we decided to return in September to experience one of their luxury pod lodges. Read the original Higher Moor Farm review for an overview of campsite and why it got the Grumpy Mum stamp of approval. About the Pod Lodges From the outside the pods appear to be nothing more than what my mother would call a sun room. It’s easy to assume […]
