Hiding from chores…


Hello! I hope 2019 has got off to a great start. I have so much planned this year I already feel that time is running away with me!

I’ve enjoyed some lovely walks with my Cairn Terriers recently. It has been very chilly some mornings but they seem to embrace most weathers, although hot sunny days we need to be especially careful of, so that’s when we tend to have very early morning walks to avoid the heat! It can be a bit tricky though after working a late shift! Speaking of summer, the evenings are definitely getting lighter now aren’t they? I love winter time but I do find the few hours of daylight a little challenging at times.

This has to be one of my favourite recent pictures of my two Cairns. I couldn’t find them anywhere in the home, I called and called but they never came… I eventually found them snuggled up in our duvet on our bed! They’ve made it their own despite all the lovely dog beds around the home!

So many of us opt to spring clean and freshen up our homes at this time of the year. We seem to be forever tidying, clearing out and running regular trips to our charity shop at the moment. In fact, we’re about to let go of a shelving unit in favour of a sideboard… we’re on the search!

Cleaning is also something many of us turn our attention to as we head into the New Year. Well, this Today’s Special Value I’m launching on Monday 21st Jan at midnight as we head into Tuesday is simply brilliant and something you’ll love using all year round. It’s the Prolectrix 2 in 1 Sonic Hard Floor and Carpet Cleaner with Solution Kit.

I was amazed at how effective this was when trialling it. I couldn’t resist putting this short video together, which by the way, has a very special guest appearance! The 1200 oscillations per minute do an amazing job. It’s so easy to use and the on board LED lights are a neat feature too.

I hope you can join us for the launch at midnight!

In the meantime, I think I’ll make myself a nice cup of green tea and I’m sure we have some biscuits left over somewhere from Christmas… the hunt is on as they’re often hidden away from me as I tend to plough through them too quickly!

Take care and see you soon,

Charlie x

    Hello what lovely pics of your two Cairns….must admit its difficult to tell top from bottom; they are adorable. Look after them Charlie and give them lots of love, which I am sure you do, of course.

    Hello Susan, thank you for your kind words. They are utterly adored! Even though they are very mischievous!

    All the best
