    Dimplex Danville Electirc Fire- seeing is believing

    I was fortunate enough to review a new electric fire as our old one was barely sending any heat out the flicker effect had stopped working and being a silver surround it looked grubby. Enter the Dimplex Danville rather than just write about this fire i have posted a video review on you tube. https://l.facebook.com/l.php?u=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.youtube.com%2Fwatch%3Fv%3DSomv74JNugk&h=VAQGchlhM The fire is one of the Opti_myst range from Dimplex, The Opti-Myst gives a real flame effect not just flickering lights. for a full 3d effect. A simple idea but so much more effective than a normal electric fire giving a real flame effect without the smoke. How can Dimplex do this simply by adding a…

    Kingslodge Inn, Durham

    When i was asked if I would like to review the Kingslodge Durham, I jumped at the chance as love food as my body shape will testament to. Despite living in the Durham area i Hadnt heard of the Kingslodge previously but then I dont get out as much as i should. It is one of Durham Cities hidden gems in my opinion, located a stones throw from the city centre and train station, The Kingslodge inn is tucked away behind houses yet it is surrounded by some wonderful countryside known as Flass Vale. The Bar area of the resteraunt is dog friendly, so ideal place to stop off after…

    Feed the birds

    I thought it was time for an update sorry to Farbrook Farms for not posting sooner, but I was lucky enough to be sent some fab products as I love feeding the birds that have started coming back into our garden, lately we have seen an increase in sparrows, blackbirds, starlings, and magpies, we even have a regular daily visitor of a pigeon who we have named Percy. I was sent to review A water drinker which looks like an upside-down bottle on a plate, which I guess basically it is but the slow release means the water lasts for a while as it only releases onto the plate when…

    Vax Bare Floor Advance

    Ive just had the pleasure, if cleaning floors was ever a pleasure of doing mine with a Vax Bare Floor Advance steam cleaner, and here is my thoughts on the machine, Upon picking up the box i thought this is going to be heavy going compared to a quick sweep and damp mop, alas assembling was simple following the instructions in the handy user guide all i needed to do was lock the handle into place with a push and click, straight forward enough then to put the microfibre cleaning pad onto the head of the machine, that was also simple to do as it just attached like velcro, next…
