Buying bits for the house

August 28th, 2014, Posted in Life by Alexandra | No Comments

Before we went on holiday we decided to buy a few bits for the house, as Tesco were doing their clubcard boost we decided to use some of our clubcard vouchers to save a bit of money. We managed to pick up quite a few items using all of the vouchers and a little bit extra using cash. We also used their click and collect service which is a lot easier than having to traipse around the store looking for the items we liked.

I was so excited to collect these items when our order was ready, I cant wait to go shopping for some more home bits. The next shopping trip on the list i think will
be Ikea.

This is the Samsung microwave we bought, we will be reviewing this as soon as we get a chance to use it. This was the most exciting of our products that we bought. The other items were mainly cleaning bits, ready for when we move in such as a mop and bucket, a dustpan and brush and a clothes airer.

Our annual holiday

August 24th, 2014, Posted in Life by Alexandra | No Comments

We’ve just returned home from our second holiday of the year, which is our annual family holiday to Cornwall. This year we went down with my parents and 2 of my nieces and 2 of my nephews.

We had a lovely week  and has sunshine most days. The waves were a little bit disappointing for us this year as we normally like to go body boarding but we still made the most of it, taking the boards out to try and catch some waves, going down to the beach everyday

We mainly went to the beaches of Gwithian and Sennen Cove but one of the days we drove down to Fistral beach in Newquay. It was nice to see a new beach and we went out to try the waves there too.

We managed to take quite a few photos which we will put up in a following post.

Hope you enjoy the bank holiday weekend.
