Review: NETGEAR Orbi RBK53 AC3000 Tri-band Mesh WiFi System

As our homes and lives become more technology enabled, having fast and reliable home WiFi is now a must-have rather than a nice-to-have. Sure, it might be a bit ‘First World problems’, but internet connectivity is pivotal to many of the things we do each day. From sending emails to listening to music to watching […]

Review: A Half-Term Family Break To Shorefield Country Park, Hampshire

During October half-term, we were invited by Shorefield Holidays to stay at one of their holiday parks in Hampshire.

Making DIY Gingerbread Men Christmas Decorations With Bosch

A few weeks ago, I got an email from Bosch DIY and Garden with a challenge.

OK, so that’s a lie. Sorry. Technically it was her second proper football match – […]

Review: Arlo Pro 2 Wireless Camera, Audio Doorbell And Smart Chime

Although I’m confident that our home is covered when it comes to security, monitoring and protection, less can be said about my folks’ house. They have a wired house alarm and CCTV, but these are outdated and arguably no longer fit for purpose. It also means that they haven’t benefited from the emergence of smart […]

Review: A Family Holiday To Hemsby Beach Holiday Park, Norfolk

Back in August, we were invited to spend a long weekend at Richardson’s Hemsby Beach Holiday Park. Located a few miles away from Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, they’ve recently invested in new accommodation, an improved entertainment complex and other onsite activities to entertain the whole family. So, on the Friday morning, we packed up and […]

Renovate Or Relocate: The Challenge Of A Growing Family

One of the things I’ve realised since having kids is just how much space they take up. Granted, at around 100cm tall and 15kg in weight, they don’t occupy that much physical space, it’s more the plethora of things they accumulate which is the trouble.
