My Baby thaxs so much .......

Hi everyone sorry it has been so long  but i cant tell you how stressful life has been my jod one of them finally i am being made redundant which is good and bad .......
we got burgled which was horrible they never took very much but it was horrible to say the least ....

Not the winning Photo but one i did check on teh youtube vid for live stream

WELL LIKE I SAID I WON WITH Appliances Online on facebook and i am over the moon and still it shock i won the Samsung eco bubble here ......and here is the live stream

Larder is up!
AND i love it just i cant use it yet so no review sorry but it will be on here as well loads of other kitchen appliances too so watch this space ...

My new kitchen

The reason I still have not had a play is because i have a new kitchen being fitted which the bank of mum paid for  as you can see from the picture its not finished my dad is fitting and they are on holiday at the moment and my dad just had a hernia removed too so he has not be allowed to do anything ..... and i am desperate to get in there and get everything sorted as my current kitchen is way to small and its a mess and so cluttered.

My old kitchen will become my utility room instead of the shed out in the garden that got broken into ..... (dont like going out there much now ) and my new Samsung Eco bubble will have its on space and i cant wait to use it has its in my living room at the moment and i cant stop looking at it plus my mum is on a countdown as my christmas tree goes up soon and i need the washing machine in as one my old has pretty much died and i need the space for my tree ......

My baby ......
I have opened to look and the manual and the setting are amazing and this is so going to help me with all my washing need as you can see from my other photo i have alot of washing every week and this will really help as its got a 12kg drum where as my old washing machine is only 6kg ........

but i am very happy and cant tell you how made up i am i want to thank Samsung so much and Appliances Online for making me very happy as i really am .... and once i get my baby working ill be posting  a in-depth review and will continue to try all the settings and let you know what i think i am pretty sure i am going to love it ......

Todays UFC Update in Brief

Had a little workout in the end today but i made sure i kept off my knee as its a bit sore after last night so i failed one of my workouts but i rather that then hurt my knee any more but he is a quick overview in pictures on how well i performed today .... But as  you can see i did not too bad overall today another few calories burned and with the 7 mile walk i did and 20 mins of zumba i am on fire today off to go and eat some Blueberries now .....

UFC Update and midnight walk piccys

Please check out the Trailer above to see what its all about 

Well like i promised it was slow start for me playing this game and working out as i have been very busy with kids and work but once i got going i found it very easy to get to grips with and it has great easy controls and settings, you start the game like many others by adding you details like  your age, weight, and sex. Once this has been done you start a fitness test which i can describe as intense but it really shows where you are at with your fitness and it pushes you to you limits that is for sure example of the fitness test are seeing how many sit ups as you can for one minute, and then do the same for push-ups and then jumping hacks. After all that you are ask to check your heart rate which the kinect explains how to do that very well ...... I was placed at beginner but i am fine with that and i like to work up also .......... Another plus is that using the Kinect its all voice activated so you can talk your way through the menu screen which is great ...

The  different activities you can carry out are Workouts, Activities, Programs, Quick Workout, Multi-player Games, and Player Tracker which i check quite often lol ...... Once you are selected workout you get a choice of selecting different trainers based on there abilities so there work outs are similar but differ a little in order and what they focus first, each have a around 20 different workouts can get alot harder  after a while .... they last around 15- 20 mins (which is enough for me lol )  as even for a intermediate level you will be sweating and puffing in no time lol .......

well that is enough about the game for the moment i will feature more on it later ..... i might miss my training today as after my midnight walk and Zumba last night i am quite tired today only having around fours hours sleep as i had to get up for the kids today but here are some piccys of the the midnight walk and please dont forget to sponsor me here please you still can ........

And if you want to find out more about my MCV UFC challenge you can keep up to date and read about it here and catch up with all the other details on MCV Website too and see who else is in the running as well .....

Yes i am doing the Midnight walk tonight for St Lukes Hospice please feel free to sponsor me This year theme is Hula girls so Look out for pics later this week I am walking 7 Miles so it should be great fun and i am also doing a bit of Zumba before hand as a warm up  .....

  I Have been working out to UFC Ultimate Trainer for the 360 Xbox Kinect Part of a 30 day test to see how much fitter i can get i can tell you it has been a blast I have been eating loads of fruit and also doing loads of Zumba at my local Zumba class on a Monday ......  

Fruit ranges from nectarines, Blueberry's, Strawberry's and many more .....I have also been eating more low fat snacks like the velvet Crunch crisps too anything to help my calorie intake while i have been using the UFC trainer i will keep you more updated of more i progress later on this week and tell you more about the game but i can tell you its hard work but i ma starting to see its all starting to pay off ........ Plus i keeping think there is a holiday to be one at the end of it which is great motivation i can tell you

Here we go again!!!

Well i still need a washing machine and i have my heart set on the Samsung Eco Bubble as it has so many thing i need to save my washing life as you all know i still have loads of washing to do ....... and if Samsung ever need me to review one i am here .......  but the real reason i am here today is to explain that i also need a cooker so here i am trying to win one from Appliances online now i wanted to blog about the reason why i have entered and why i have chosen the product i want to win .......

The Zanussi ZCG662GNC Cooker comes in a sleek black colour.
The cooker is a lot larger than what i currently have so with all my cake baking and cooking for my family of five it would be great to get a lot more done. This model also comes with some great safety features, the flame safety device senses when the flame has been extinguished and automatically cuts off the gas supply preventing a dangerous gas leak. And my favourite part is,  The child safety lock will prevent any little  hands from opening the oven and risking burning themselves which is a godsend for any parent if you ask me.

 So this is what it can do now here are the reason i need a new cooker as you can see from my photos my cooker well has seen its days , the cooker came with the house and i have no idea how old its is and i would love to be able to get a new cooker for my new kitchen .... as i wont be having a electric this time and am having a gas fitted into my kitchen one because i prefer to cook with gas and two the kids can see the hot flame so they no not to touch as with mine here you can see its hard to see if the cooker is on or not ..... plus with the Zanussi cooker it has a hob safety glass that can be but over the hobs to protect any thing from being but over the hot areas ...... once again a great safety feature for family's like mine

 So you can see here the the hobs are right in reach of any hands and is not very safe at all for children ..........
And here you can see the oven is on but you have no way of telling that it is switched on so if any one puts anything on top of the oven hot plates they could be in for a nasty shock ...... not like i leave this unattended but you never know it only takes a second for something to go wrong and with the Zanussi you would have peace of mind with the hot plate cover and a child lock too

But remember like always you can enter too but make sure you watch the video first as this will help you get every step right and good luck .....  you can enter by clicking this link here .....

Preview on the LeapPad Explorer and details of a fab Comp

Just received a email about the the new LeapPad that goes on sale on the 15th of August with a price tag of £79.99 from LeapFrogs website or From Toys r us  and is available to pre order now and available in Pink or Green. Now i know the price seems a little pricey and is it worth it I hear you say well knowing my experience with Leapfrog i have never doubted there products yet so I can assume it will be worth every penny. The LeapPad Explorer is available for ages 4 - 9 so if you have three kids like me and different ages they will find something that is suitable for there learning and if its anything like the Leapster 2 you can set different users so you can keep a eye on their progress via your PC and can monitor there progression and how they are learning through playing which has always been a major plus for me.

I hope to do a review of one of these later in the year so look out for that it all depends  on when i get my hands on this product by either winning one or buying one at Christmas and i am sure it will be on my top tips for prezzys for kids this Christmas.
But in the mean time go and enter the comp over at  LeapFrog UK Facebook page right now which ends on the 15th July so i recommend going to there page here and entering yourself they have already given two away and there is still one more up for grabs..... 


  • Just like there Page
  • Share a funny comment about a mishap with a gadget that you own that involves the kids
  • And the three best stories win a LeapPad Explorer finishes on the 15th July 
 Info taken from there webpage about the new LeapPad Explorer

LeapFrog is proud to announce the arrival of the new LeapPad Explorer, a multifunctional learning tablet device that introduces the next generation of learning, digital reading, and personal creativity for children ages 4 and up. LeapPad Explorer is designed to change the way children learn and play and this innovative new device will be available from Summer 2011, priced at £79.99 RRP.

LeapPad Explorer builds on the success of 2010's award winning handheld; Leapster Explorer and - just like an adult tablet - LeapPad Explorer combines the latest technology, educational content and entertainment features, specially tailored for young learners with a robust and durable design.

We also went down to the Barbican where they had HMS Bounty on display which was used in the second Pirates of the Caribbean film the boys thought that was fab, and it gave me a chance to use my new Nikon Coolpix S9100 that i won from TNT Magazine via their twitter comp. The camera is really great and it takes great pictures and the video footage is brilliant and films in HD ill never miss a moment again it now goes every where with me ...

I also won a Union Jack Flip which is so small and handy and will be great if i ever want to film the kids but i don't want to take my camera with me ...always wanted one of these i am such a gadget girl at heart so if anyone out there has a gadget they want me to review i would be happy to help.

  • 101 in 1 Sports MegaMis DS 19.99
  • 101 in 1 Sports MegaMis Wii 19.99
  • Michael Jackson Experience PlayStation 3 39.99

All you have to do is follow this Link and read the terms and condtions and follow the easy steps to enter


This might look hard, but trust me its very simple to do and i will tell you how to do it .....

Cake Recipe

12oz Self- Raising Flour
3 Eggs
250 Grams of Unsalted Butter
8oz Sugar
1 Tbsp Vanilla Essence
1 Tsp Baking Powder
Drop of Milk

(If you find this does not make enough for the tins you are using than repeat but use half the stated quantities so use 6oz of flour 4oz of sugar and so on ) 

Butter Cream Recipe 

6oz of Icing sugar
125 Grams of butter
Milk or a little hot water
1 Tsp of flavouring if you want to 

(Add coco powder to make a chocolate butter cream you will have to add a little bit more butter for this)


  • Mix all the ingredients into a food mixer or bowl once mixed get five small round cake tins i use 8" tins pour the mixture into the five pans.
  • I use Sugarflair gel food colouring its a little bit more pricey but lasts longer and the colour is so vibrant too. mix a tiny bit of each colour into each pan.
  • pop the cake's into the over on 150f fora round 45 mins or until they looked cooked it worth using a knife or one of those cake testers (must get one of these) to see if the cake is cooked all the way through.
  • Once the cake is baked and cooled down get a sharp knife and cut the top layer of the cake to leave a smooth round finished  and brush of any cake crumbs around the surface. (this works better once the cake has been chilled or left to cool).
  • No you can use either Jam or butter cream spread a layer on to the top of each cake and stack them in order of the colours of the rainbow.
  • Now you need to make the butter cream recipe and once made you have to cover the whole cake , don't worry about any loose crumbs this first layer is used to keep the crumbs at bay once covered leave to cool and set.
  • Now you can use a chocolate butter cream or colour the butter cream you are using to decorate the final bit of the cake .... cover all around the cake either smooth it out or use a choppy effect like mine to add different looks to the cake and you can use hundreds and thousand edible glitter possibility are endless.

Appliances Online And LG here my plea! from a mummy in need!

hi guys this is my story please help me get a new washing machine i am a mum of three and my current washing can't keep up with my family's active lifestyle from school to dancing,swimming and after school clubs my washing pile mounts up all the time. With four beds to clean and towels to wash my pile never seems to shrink  as you can see i am much need for one my washing machine is in there somewhere but this is all i do and i never get any mummy! time and don't have alot of time to dedicate to kids as  my washing never seems to go away My washing machine lives out in the shed so if its raining yes that's right i get wet !!  the reason for this is that it is too noisy and the it keeps the kids up at night because it is always on. But i have seen this great new LG Direct Drive washing machine that is super quite so it can be put inside the house so no more trips out in the garden  it also has a much bigger drum so less washing loads and it can a duvet so no more trips to laundrette if my kids spill a drink or have a accident, some models also feature a Steam Wash that delves deep into clothes with molecules 1,600 times smaller than water (which must be fab for getting stains out and keeping you clothes looking there best). I have also heard some models play music which is pretty cool if i say so myself being a bit of lover of all things quirky i am sure i will like this as much as my kids. Like  i said i am a mum of three so i cant afford a new one at the moment as money can be quite tight but maybe if you like this video you may be able to help me get a new washing machine ........i am sure there is a fairy washing machine mother out there some where .....
If you could go to Appliances online Facebook page and look for my 1st Video and then my 2nd Video and like them and even add a comment on them maybe offering me some personal ironing service would be nice lol (cough cough)  i'm not joking ha ha !!! if i can prove to LG that i am a mother in need then maybe just maybe they will let they just might answer my wish and give me a brand new washing machine......

p.s if they do ill review it for them too and let the whole world know how great they are i am not sucking up of course ..... okay maybe just a little!!!!
