With the summer upon us there is no excuse not to peel your backside of the sofa, switch off the games console and step out into the sun. God it’s bright out there, but the hair loss from lack of vitamin D just isn’t worth it! Don’t forget to smother your pasty skin in sun cream if it’s the first time you have been out this year.
With so many power-banks on the market now it’s easy to forget that not everything runs off a built-in rechargeable, like the ones we have in our phones and tablets. The GP Charge AnyWay is here to revive those devices that take AA or AAA batteries: games consoles controllers, remotes, external camera flashes or the computer mouse for example.
If when exploring the great outdoors you prefer to keep things simple, disturb your surroundings as little as possible or perhaps just like to try something new, then a hammock might be a more suitable place to lay your head down at night than a traditional tent. It is more compact and light-weight, but you will need to consider your terrain - this isn’t going to work on the beach or at a music festival, you need trees or some super conveniently placed telegraph poles.
This year we decided to upgrade our usual camping trip from a long weekend to a full 10 days of outdoor living. For this we wanted a very specific tent: something you can stand up in, as this makes getting changed and general moving about so much easier. We also wanted plenty of space in the sleeping area, as trying to share an airbed with my husband is similar to trying to take a nap on a bouncy castle at a 6-year old’s birthday party, so this year we want enough space for two single airbeds.
The theory behind getting pregnant is relatively simple but, as many people can confirm, putting it into practise isn’t always that straightforward! Contrary to popular belief, you cannot get pregnant at anytime of the month - you will need to be ovulating to conceive and tracking down when in your cycle that happens can be a stressful combination of apps, thermometers and trying to decipher pee-soaked strips of paper.
Cleaning the hard floors in our home is up there with ironing and weeding on the list of things we don’t want to do in our free time. It is often decided with a game of rock, paper, scissors. However, the moment we have a new gadget to help with a tedious chore, we end up battling over who gets to try it out first.
