5 Great Sandwich Fillings with Heinz Sauces

So a little while ago now I was sent a wonderful hamper filled to the brim with sauces from Heinz.  So I had a little think about how we use them at home and thought I’d share 5 of my favourite sandwich fillings with you.

Now there’s no two ways about it, we all know that Heinz sauces are great for dipping and dunking. Be it chips, salad, or even a cheeky crisp (crisps and mayo is lush just so you know!).  I’m not here to review them and how yummy they are. We all know that. But with the schools being back and the time for summer salads at lunch quickly passing I thought I’d share some quick and easy lunch box ideas.  Continue reading 5 Great Sandwich Fillings with Heinz Sauces

This plus that equals…. How I Stay Positive

Here’s the latest instalment in my series of posts all about what makes our lives here at home tick. This week is all about what I do to stay positive.

Big Fun in a Small Package

Who else struggles for space in their house? Hands up. I know we do and the older L gets the worse it seems to become. His toys seemingly multiply overnight, not to mention the fact that as he has grown his toys have too.

For ages now we have wanted to get him some form of play house, but we physically haven’t had anywhere to put one, apart from the garden and have you seen how much a wooden playhouse for the garden costs! To have a playhouse in his room would mean not being able to open his wardrobe. To have one in the sitting room would either mean not being able to see the TV or not being able to open the door, neither of which are good options.

Taking Risks and Making Decisions

If you’ve been reading my blog over the last month or so you’ll have sensed a change in me. Less upbeat. More worried. Definitely more stressed. You’ll also know this is because I felt like I was losing my dream.

So now I think it’s time for a catch up. A proper one. Honest, warts and all catch up on what has been going on in my life this month. As it is real life, my real life. The reason I think most of you read this, although I’m never sure I’ll know why. But thank you so much, as the kind comments I’ve had these last few weeks have truly meant the world to me and kept me going.  Continue reading Taking Risks and Making Decisions

Mummy Peppa Pants Please

The phrase ‘Mummy Peppa Pants Please’ is getting used very frequently at the moment. This is all because we were contacted by Asda to see if we wanted to review some of the nappies in their Little Angels range.

He looks unimpressed, this is because I suggested he wore them instead of holding them

 

At the moment L isn’t quite ready to start potty training, but it is very much on our minds. He’s not far off. Not far at all. But as it stands he’s just not there yet and I’m not planning on pushing it.  Continue reading Mummy Peppa Pants Please

The Gtech AirRam K9


We’ve gone through a bit of a cleaning breakthrough here in the Any Way To Stay At Home household. With the help of a list and some fab time saving products I’m feeling pretty smug in my domesticated-ness. So over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some of my tips with you, this week it the Gtech AirRam K9.

We now follow a weekly cleaning schedule and on that schedule is a little slot everyday for a quick vacuum. This is all very well and good if it was indeed a quick job, but by the time you’ve got it plugged in and unwound the cable, dragged the thing around the house, wound the cable back up and put it away it’s easily 25 minutes of your life gone.

We’ve gone through a bit of a cleaning breakthrough here in the Any Way To Stay At Home household. With the help of a list and some fab time saving products I’m feeling pretty smug in my domesticated-ness. So over the next few weeks I’ll be sharing some of my tips with you, this week it the Vileda Windomatic.

We now follow a weekly cleaning schedule and on that schedule Tuesday is the day we clean the windows. Now previously this hadn’t happened weekly, nor monthly for that matter. Window cleaning was very sporadic. So now I had to do it every week I wanted something to make it easier.  Continue reading The Vileda Windomatic
