Time To Upgrade My Heating

A few weeks ago I was wondering weather or not i should think about changing my heating system to a newer and much better one because the one I have now is very insufficient. The problems that I have with the heating system that I have at them moment are; The heating doesn’t give out as much heat as I have set it to give out, the radiators take a long time to heat up and this really starts to annoy me because they shouldn’t take so long its not normal for them to be like this. The many other issues too but I could possibly go on for ever on why I wanted to change my old central heating system, not to mention how much this insufficient heating is costing me.

underfloor heat

I was looking to install central heating again but a more modern style so I browsed through a few heating catalogues and I noticed that they had underfloor heating as an option. Underfloor heating never crossed my mind before and now I spend a lot of my time researching on underfloor heating because I am very interested in installing it in my home.

My Review: Swordfish ‘Go Eco’ Shredder

Hi, are you here for another helpful review on a paper shredder? If so, you are in the right place as you may or may not know I specialise in solid reviews on a wide range of popular shredders. My review will be based on the Swordfish ‘Go Eco’ GQW100D Cross Cut Shredder.


So lets start of with the appearance of this paper shredder, now this paper shredder doesn’t look anything like a paper shredder, this can be good or bad. It is grey in colour and looks more like a portable heater, but it does look smart. What makes this shredder so special is that the shredder is eco friendly, it is certified carbon neutral and has a zero carbon footprint! It can shred up to 10 sheets at a time, this shredder can also shred credit cards too. It has a 15 litre waste bin and also comes with a stop and start with a reverse function too. My overall opinion on this shredder is that it is certainly not worth the very high price tag there are better shredders with a much lower price, but if being eco friendly is what you are after then it is great! If you want to buy this shredder then you can visit Shreddy GoGo. They are the company that I bye my shredders from.

Why You Should Clean Your Kitchen Ducts

Kitchen duct cleaning is important in any kitchen. The reason why it is so important is because the kitchen is the place where our food is prepared and it should be clean and safe for us to maintain healthy. If our kitchen isn’t clean it is obvious that there will be bacteria and contaminants that can easily transfer onto our food and cause us to fall seriously ill. food hygiene is crucial die to the fact that food enters our body orally and directly, if the food is contaminated then so will the bacteria. This will cause a whole load of more problems.

Here’s the catch, bacteria and infections are what you can’t see. One of the most common and overlooked place in your kitchen where bacteria can hide and easily spread is through your air ducts. Kitchen duct cleaning is a must to avoid the bacteria to for and spread into the air and infect our food and health.

The stag night was perfect night out with the lads. We had such a good time and rolling around the city in a limo made it even better!

His Opinon On Loft Conversions

I was speaking to my neighbour yesterday about loft conversions because I know that he had a loft conversion done a few months ago. The reason why I was interested to speak to him about it was because I have really liked loft conversions and I thought it would be a pretty good idea to have one done on my property. Due to the fact that I know very little about them and I haven’t go any personal experience with having a loft conversions done I was quite keen on finding out more information from my neighbour.

loft converison

My neighbour told me that he loves his loft converted room and he doesn’t regret getting it done. he told me he find the room very comfortable to sit in and he prefers to use it most of the time. He also said the loft conversion wasn’t that hard to complete and didn’t take to long either. He told me that there is nothing to worry about when it comes to building your loft into a room. He told me if I am interested he can speak to the guys who done his loft conversion for him.

Be Precise on Your Searches

If you are looking to search for a product online or pretty much anything at all. One of the key mistakes a lot of us tend to make is not narrowing the search term to precisely match what you are looking for, as an example if I was looking for a new car the last thing I would want to do is type in something along the lines of ‘car’, ‘new car’ etc in a search engine because a whole range of cars and car related items will show as the results.

for sale car

To avoid this problem and find what you are looking for you can search instead for ‘used car dealers’ or ‘used car dealers Staffordshire‘. This would bring up pages related to used cars and used cars in Staffordshire which is ideal because it is exactly what I am after. You can also narrow the search down even more to literally pin point what you are after. It is better to be more precise on your web searches in order to find what you are looking for without wasting your time.

Hot Tubs Can Be Found In The UK

Trying to find hot tubs in the United Kingdom can be a hard task. The reason why this can be a hard task is because hot tubs are genuinely more of an American thing and a miles more popular in America. Most hot tubs that are found in the UK and imported from different countries and only specialist shops will sell a hot tub. This is what makes them even more expensive than what they already are. If you are looking to buy a hot tub in the UK the best way to go by finding one is by searching for ho tub sellers online. You can use search engines to help guide you to the right dealer for example, you can search ‘hot tubs UK‘ to locate hot tubs on sale in the UK.

Luxury Hot Tub

There are a limited amount of hot tubs in the UK so if you are looking to buy a hot tub there is one website that I know of that may help you and that is suttonspas.co.uk.

Progress On Our Loft

We are currently having work done in our loft. You are probably wondering what the work is that is getting done in the loft. Well, what we are having done is a loft conversion. We have been thinking about having a loft conversions done for a long time but we had to have a good think about it first, save up money and find the perfect company for the job. We decided we wanted a loft conversions done because we think loft conversions are ideal for making another liveable room in your home. After all a loft is just an empty room in your home that is usually going to waste.

We wanted to make the loft into another bedroom because we thought it would be ideal for our grandchildren to sleep in when they want to stop over. It is also something we have wanted to do for a while. We went with Buckley Loft Conversions. So far the progress is great and I am really happy with how things are looking. We are very excited to see the end result.

30 Years Of Success

I went over to see my granddad who owns a successful jewellers in Birmingham. He has been running his jewellery shop for over 30 years! I am very proud of his success and I often head over to his jewellers to give him a helping hand whenever he needs the extra help. What I usually do while I am there is organise the jewellery and make sure every display piece of jewellery and polished if needed.

His jewellers isn’t a very large shop but it is very successful. While I am working here I do tend to see a lot of happy customers and a majority of them do leave his place with the jewellery they are after. What I have noticed over the time I have spent there and asking my granddad what the popular jeweller is that people are after, I found out that engagement rings Birmingham are very popular. This is great news as engagement rings are very expensive and will make my granddad a lot of money hopefully!

Right now you may be wondering what caused my back related injury and you may also be wondering how it happened and why I went to visit a chiropractor. If you are, then please continue reading as it is what I am about to cover throughout this post.


How I injured my lower back was while I was lifting heavy equipment. I was moving heavy item out of my garage to give it a good cleaning but i wasn’t lifting them correctly. I went to visit my local general practitioner about my back pain because it got really bad and he advised me to go and see a chiropractor to aid the healing and pain of my back. The chiropractic treatment is working and my back is in slightly less pain and feels more flexible. I am still under treatment but I am happy that it is working and it wasn’t anything too serious.

I have tried and tested many techniques when it comes to relaxation but nothing has ever come close to the type of relaxation I get from this one piece of luxury. Right now my guess is that you would really like to know what this luxury way of relaxing is and everything else along with it. Don’t panic, I am about to tell you.

Luxury Hot Tub

The way I love to relax, after trying and testing many different ways, is by a hot tub. Hot tubs are the ultimate way to relax for me. What makes the hot tub so good is because it provides your body with a deep muscle, body and mind relaxation. Hot tubs can be very expensive. This is  the reason why you should search for cheap hot tubs and you too can hopefully achieve the same amount of relaxation as I do.

Oh No My Pipe Has Burst!

I was in desperate need of a plumber when I woke up to a burst pipe in my home. If waking up to a burst pipe wasn’t bad enough, what made it worse was that it was destroying my home! I was devastated when I woke up to see the pipe burst and I was also very shocked and I had no idea on how to stop it. What I feared the most was my children’s safety and also my home. I knew I had to sort out this problem before I go to work.


I had a look at some emergency plumbers online who where near me and I called one out in distress. He was a very calm and friendly guy. He reassured me that the problem would be fixed within no time and that he will be coming to my house within 15 minutes. He was right as well he came round very fast and he worked efficiently and had the problem sorted in just under 30 minutes! I was so relieved that everything was back to normal. The only thing now was repairing the damages to my home.

Finding Bespoke Jewellers

If you are like me and you prefer to were jewellery that is not dull and more unique than the common jewellery you can find at most jewellers, then I guess you too have probably had a hard time trying to locate a jeweller that offers bespoke jewellery near you. If this is the case with you then you are looking in the right place. What I will be covering today is a jeweller that offers me bespoke hand crafted jewellery. The reason why I want to share it with you is because I understand how hard it can be finding a jeweller of this type.

jewellery west midlands

First of all, I tried visiting many local jewellers and asking around wether anybody knew any bespoke jewellers in my area. Of course the response was a no. This is when I thought I will try and locate one by searching online for them. It didn’t take me long at all to find the perfect jeweller for my needs. The jeweller is called Hamlingtons Fine Jewellery. All their jewellery is hand crafted and made in house so theres no middle man.

I want a paper shredder

I was after a paper shredder when I realised how good they were. I had went to my friends house and he has a paper shredder in his home and he uses it for shredding important documents and normal paper work that he needs disposing of which is then thrown into the recycling. I asked him why does he even bother with buying a paper shredder and what was the actual point of it. My friends told me that the shredder completely destroys important documentation so that they aren’t readable again. This makes the documents safe to dispose of and it also makes the paperwork take up less space in the paper bin.


He also told me that the paper shredder is very fun to use and he loves to shred any sort of paper he has just because he has fun doing it. After looking at his paper shredder I decided that IW ant the shredder even more now and I am looking online for paper shredders at the moment.

Have You Cleaned Your Ductwork?

Thousands of people across the nation are getting their ducts cleaned after hearing the negative effects of having dirty ductwork. If you are unsure as to why or you are simply curious of the negative  effects of having dirty ductwork then you are looking in the right place. What I will be writing about today is how having dirty ductwork on your property can effect your health and spread awareness of the importance of duct cleaning.

So why is ductwork cleaning so important?

The answer is simple, our ductwork is what provides us with what we believe to be fresh clean air, this isn’t the case if you have dirty ducts. If your ducts have never been cleaned, all the debris that sits inside your ducts will spread through the air we breathe and this can be a health risk.

What makes your ducts dirty?

There are many things that can potentially make your ducts dirty but below are few of the more common and most important ones.

  • Clumps of dust
  • Dead insects
  • Insect dropping
  • Mold
  • Bacteria
  • Spider Webs


How should I clean my ducts?

It is very important you get a fully qualified professional to clean your ducts. It is especially important if you are looking to get your kitchen ducts clean. You must call a professional kitchen duct cleaning company due to the very hard to remove grease and debris.

Slow Mobility Scooter

I have a mobility scooter, it has been working fine for a very long time and it has only started to play up after 8 months time. I noticed a probelm with it a few days ago. The problem was that it was so slow it was barley moving (I know they are usually slow but this was hardly moving). I was very annoyed by this because this mobility scooter doesn’t belong to me, it is my grandfathers scooter.I was further annoyed because If it was broke that would mean I will have to buy a new one as much as I would hate to buy another one even though I know I will have to. I was slightly worried about how long it will take to repair or even replace because my grandfather needs his mobility scooter

mobility scooter repairs

I searched online for a mobility scooter repairs guy. He was quick and efficient, he told me the battery was low and the wire connected to the battery was damaged. He replaced the battery and sorted the wire thankfully! At least I don’t have to buy another scooter.

My Car Isn’t Worth It

I was searching for a new car because my old car just isn’t worth the money to keep using. I recently had to spend over £300 on repairs. This is why I started to ask myself if it is even worth keeping this car and I will probably be better off without the car. I realised after a some time thinking about it that it would best if I bought a new car after all.

for sale car

I started my search for my new car by typing into a search engine online for used car dealers staffordshire. I found many dealers who offered me a wide range of cars but finding a trusted dealer that was close to me was a bit of a struggle. Luckily for me I did come across a car dealer who had great reviews and even better cars available for me. The car dealer was called cars 2 you. I headed over to the car dealer and I did find a car I was very interested in however I think I need to do a bit more saving before I make the commitment.

Professional Prints Really Matter

Having high quality professional print matters, you may be wondering why it matters and the answer to that is simple. As humans we like to judge something within the first few seconds wether we like it or not, these judgments can vary between positive and negative, they are completely instinctive. This is the reason why when you are choosing a print for a poster or a flyer whatever it may be, you would want the colours to be vibrant and sharp so it attracts a lot of attention rather than, dull and not interesting. The only way a print can look boring and dull is through bad colour schemes but mainly due to the print quality. This natural response is caused my our fight or flight response, this is what guides us to make the right choices for us to survive.


If you are looking to showcase yourself or your company having high quality professional prints really matters, a poor quality print will and can reflect a negative image on the person or company itself.

If you are in need of printing  go to the number one printers in Birmingham.

Old Heating Systems Aren’t The Best

We have been heating up our homes for many hundreds of years and for many more years we have all been running on the traditional central heating system which is ideal but it is far from the best and most efficient way, as it is very old. I came across a new way in which you can heat up your home and this way also saves you money in the long run whilst providing you with great comfort levels. What is this new way to heat up your home? You may be wondering. This new and revolutionary way to heat up your home is called underfloor heating.

Underfloor heating is a new heating system which is placed beneath your flooring as a result of this it will provide you with warm flooring as well as warm rooms too. They way underfloor heating works is by placing heated rods evenly beneath your flooring and are usually powered by electricity.

With underfloor heating you will have:

  • Warm floors
  • very low running costs
  • equal heat distribution
  • a heating system that is safe and out of the way and sight

I Want To Travel Easier

I was looking for driving instructors Birmingham because I really want to start learning how to drive again. I am so sick of relying on people to drop me off at places and the worst of all is the public transport. Public transport is a nightmare. I hate not being in control of things, I like to be in control of something because then I can keep track of the time it will take me etc.

passed driving

I want to be able to drive so I can go where I want without having to worry about how much it is going to cost me because every other form of travel is a lot more expensive especially taxi’s. Now that I have decided that I really want to learn how to drive and hopefully pass very soon. I am not quite sure on who to use as a driving instructor because I don’t just want to use any instructor. I want to use a instructor that is very good at what he does and has good reviews. I am thinking about asking my friends and find out who to use.

Can You Speak The Lingo

Being able to speak a second or even third language is a fantastic skill to have in life. I would say there’s a strong majority of people who don’t speak a fluent second tongue and have been put off because they think once you get past a certain age in life, it becomes hard to develop a knowledge for multiple languages.

But this isn’t the case! Anyone can undergo language lessons at any age so don’t put yourself off learning a new one because it can come massively in handy when meeting new people in different countries or cultures, alongside the business advantages of being able to speak a second language.

language lessons


Learning a new language can be fun so take a look at a fantastic provider of language lessons such as The Language Machine, they are fantastic at what they do offering services all around the UK in a range of languages including French, Spanish, German and many more!

Dealing With Rats

Protecting your home is important, and making sure you keep it free of rodents, insects and other pests is important in maintaing a healthy home and lifestyle. It can also be damaging and costly if you do not swiftly and effectively remove these from your house. There are plenty of different types of pest that can effect you such as rats, mice, moles and many more – so protecting from them all is important.

A friend of mine recently had a problem with rats, so thought it would be best to get in touch with a professional pest control company to aid him in the removal of these from his home. Rats can be a huge nuisance not only in the mess they leave, but also cause some quite serious damage to some parts of your home.

pest control walsall


Removal of rats can be troublesome and it’s strongly advised by professionals such as E-Pest control that you don’t try to remove it yourself and get a professional in to do the job for you. We got in touch with a local provider of pest control Tamworth and got them in to help with the problem.

Would strongly recommend them to anyone looking for rodent or pest removal in the Midlands, covering most area’s and certainly all problems. Check them out over at their fantastic new website: http://e-pestcontrol.co.uk

Another Super Jeweller

After a recent photography trip to the jewellery quarter (see our last blog), we decided to explore further into the jewellers in the surrounding areas of the West Midlands such as Leamington Spa, Kenilworth and more! The quarter is a fantastic location in the centre of Birmingham providing an elegant range of all types of jewellery.

Being the largest collection of jewellery shops in Europe you can imagine how much this beautiful place has to offer. With a huge selection of jewellers in the Midlands the quarter is not the only location to stop off for fine jewellery. In this weeks trip we visited a branch of one of the leading fine jewellers in the UK, Hamlington’s.

We viewed a stunning range of collections that they have on offer, which really portray the uniqueness of this iconic brand. If you get chance to visit one of their stores located around the Midlands in Solihull and various others then you will not be disappointed with what’s on offer.

A Great Location For a Photograph

We were out looking for locations in the West Midlands last week and came across a stunning gem located right in the heart of the city. We were out in the Birmingham jewellery quarter, which is the epicentre of jewellery trade in the West Midlands. With over two hundred and fifty years history on display throughout the quarter, through an array of shops, bars and restaurants and even a museum – you immediately grasp the beauty of this place just having a walk around.

jewellery quarter birmingham


There were plenty of locations for a fantastic photograph within the quarter, and as you can see in the photograph above the Chamerlain clock lies in the middle of the quarter and is an iconic piece for a great photo.

There’s a wide selection of jewellery on offer within the quarter ranging from some beautiful gold jewellery pieces such as bracelets, chains and earrings – alongside a fantastic selection of wedding and engagement jewellery including some of the finest diamond engagement rings I have ever laid eyes upon.

The nightlife here is fantastic too with the selection of fantastic restaurants serving up some of the best food I have had while out dining, with plenty of modern bars to visit for a pleasant drink too.
