Wanted: Huggable Hangers

I definitely want these huggable hangers so that I can tidy buy more things for my wardrobe. I had heard about these hangers before and then whilst watching The Paul O'Grady Show (Yes I watch it) Kylie said that she uses them as she hates wire hangers!

September's Secret Post Club

Another month, another parcel :-) I always love getting my Secret Post Club parcel and this one came from the USA and from the lovely Mumof4.

Sarah Loves... Lifehouse


I posted on twitter last week that I loved Lifehouse and I didn't expect anyone to reply. Then my replies column on my tweetdeck started to fill up with favourite tracks, albums, lyrics...

I'd been a bit slow on the uptake that Lifehouse had made a new album and this is my album of choice at the moment. It obviously took me back to their older stuff too.

My Circle of Trust

I'm a good sleeper (although not recently a good dreamer) and once I'm asleep I'm gone until my alarm goes off. On very rare occasions I will wake up through the night wide awake.

Bethany Joy Galeotti - Leaving Town Alive

Another song from Bethany, who plays Haley James Scott in One Tree Hill.

I wish this song had been around when I was growing up, I now realise it is ok to make mistakes. And I still make them. :-)

The Naughty Step

 Image taken from Kapoww, I so have to buy this top for my friends toddler :-)

I was tagged by Nickie over at Typecast for this meme (I'm still way behind on these but I'm catching up). The idea as the name suggests is to send someone or something to the naughty step. This isn't easy. Not that I can't think of anything but I have too many to choose from!

Is twitter a distraction?

I love Twitter but it does affect my working week and make my productivity at work slower. I've found I'm actually working harder due to the distraction of Twitter, but do I mind?

Sarah Loves... Peanut Butter

Isn't peanut butter lovely? Or is this a marmite dilemma; do you either love it or hate it? (For the record I am not a marmite fan) Well I love peanut butter and it's probably one of the main staples in our house like milk, bread and juice.

Giveaway from The Silver Giraffe

It's always nice to treat yourself, I'm one of those people who loves nothing more than a little pampering (Ok I like a lot of pampering!) and these days I find I'm struggling to balance work and home. Making time for me seems to be low down on my list, this is just not good.

Farewell Freddie

A sad day for cricketing fans yesterday as Andrew Flintoff retired from all forms of cricket. We all knew the news was coming but it doesn't make it any easier to hear.

Wanted: Old Style Telephone

I have an iPhone and our main home phones are the cordless type that is now the modern way to go. So why would anyone buy a phone like the above one these days?

Well I did.

Kindle App for iPhone and iPad

I've always stuck to the idea that although I wanted a kindle I couldn't get my head around not reading an "actual book". I love the smell of a new book and turning over pages of a "real" book. So the kindle didn't really appeal to me. 

Then Spurs boy bought an iPad and all that changed.

Sarah Loves... In Treatment

TV Series In Treatment was first shown on UK screens here I was actually myself "in treatment" as they say, mentioned it here. In Treatment is about a psychotherapist Dr Paul Weston and his weekly sessions with his patients. The 5 nights a week series then followed each of his patients visits through each week and the last one of the week would be Paul's visit to his own psychotherapist.

Crisps? Oh go on then!

I posted on here last week the new Walkers Crisps Competition which has been launched as the new Extra Crunchy crisps have been released. I also got to try a free packet! Choosing a flavour was the hardest choice but I went for Sweet Chilli Chicken. Nom.

Sarah Loves... eBay

Whenever I think about buying something, I normally head straight to eBay to see if it's cheaper on there first. With the iPhone app it becomes even easier for me to trawl through whenever I'm out and about and check. I wouldn't say I check it every day but sometimes I have stored up a list of wanted eBay purchases that I can be on there for a few hours sometimes.

How big is yours?

Mine is pretty big but it just keeps on getting bigger and bigger.

My music collection that is. Some of you are pure filth. But I still love you!

Music is an important part of my life. I've never really been able to play any instrument, although I can play a few things on the piano and recorder (giggles - I hated the recorder but yet can still play it).

Hot Dad Awards

I got tagged by Carina over at Miss Carina for this. So the idea is to name 5 hot Dad's. But only celebrity ones.

So where to start....hmmm.... Ok...

Walkers Crisps Competition - Take One, Pass It On

Now we all love a good competition don't we? Well Walkers Crisps (nom nom nom) have launched a new competition to tie in with the launch of their Extra Crunchy crisps.

The idea is simple; upload a video showing us how you share your Extra Crunchy and they will edit the best ones together so it looks like the bag is being passed from one person to the next. See the video for a demo


I'd been meaning to add DISQUS to this blog for ages. Spurs boy has decided that he would like to join the blogging world and I said he should add it to his site straight from the beginning. I've added DISQUS on here now too the reason I had not done so sooner was because I had heard you lose all your old comments.

Wedge Welly

I knew I needed wellies for my festival trip and watching Dragon's Den (Yes I know. Shhh) I absolutely loved Wedge Welly. I straight away googled them and bought myself a pair.
