Gtech Multi K9 Review

Almost all of my house has wood flooring, apart from the stairs and landing, the Gtech AirRam K9 we reviewed is perfect for the downstairs and upstairs, but it's not great for the stairs. Gtech came to the rescue and sent me the new model Gtech Multi K9 for review.
The unit is strengthened by aluminium components that resist even the toughest wear and tear. The motorised head with rotating brush bar gives outstanding cleaning, cordless freedom and ample run time combined with nine different cleaning modes makes the Gtech Multi K9 the most effective way to vacuum above the floor without compromising on performance. The cleaner retails at £169 which is a great price for a floor to ceiling cleaner as powerful as this.
The machine comes with a multitude of attachments for whatever job you need to complete. The smallest being the dusting brush, this is great for using to dust around the skirting boards and door frames. The crevice tool is great for getting down the side of the sofa and units in the lounge. The extendible hose is great for if you need that little bit of extra length. The long reach hose is ideal for getting those cobwebs out of the corners of the room and round the lamp shades. The most used tool for me is the power brush head, this is perfect for cleaning my stairs and really gets into the corners. I love the LED blue lights that come on when the machine is in use, it helps you to see into the corners as you clean.
Obviously, as the machine is cordless it requires a charge before use, a full 4-hour charge will give around 20 minutes constant use. Now this doesn't sound a lot but it really is, it takes minutes to do the stairs if you do need a little more time you can give the machine a 1-hour boost charge for another 30 minutes cleaning power. The LED indicator above the power switch allows you to see how much cleaning time you have left and when its time to charge.
The dust canister is really easy to empty, it just clicks off the front of the machine and you can empty the contents straight into the bin. The filter is also completely removable for the dust compartment for ease of cleaning. The scent cartridges that slip inside the filter leave a really fresh scent behind as you use the machine, perfect for getting rid of whiffy pet odours as you go! I really love this machine, it is so easy to use and so much lighter (weighs just 1.6kg) the power is amazing. Do take a look at our Youtube video below which gives you a real look at the machine.

The Skinny Caffe Review & Giveaway

I always start my day with a nice hot cuppa, whether that be herbal tea or just regular tea with milk, so when the skinny caffe offered me the chance to try their skinny tea I, of course, said yes. Being on the weight loss wagon any additional help is always welcome.
It's a 2 step system that you have for 28 days straight, step one is to boost your energy with the daytime tea. It kickstarts your metabolism and reduces your bloat with the delicious strawberry & pineapple blend tea. The best thing about this tea is you can serve it hot or cold, so its perfect no matter what time of year you drink it. The mix is completely natural with Chinese oolong tea, hibiscus, apple pieces, elderberries, rosehip peel, milk thistle leaves, nettle, red clover, rose petals, pineapple pieces and strawberry pieces! All good stuff, all completely natural and makes a good cuppa. I really enjoyed having my daily brew and I noticed after the first week that I was significantly less bloated in the tummy area. I also felt like I had so much more energy.
The 2nd step in the programme is the night time blend of vanilla and cocoa, you only drink this every other day. This is to cleanse and detoxify your system overnight and help towards that flat tummy effect. The again all natural ingredients of Rooibos, cocoa shells, senna leaves, burdock root, barberry bark, lavender and vanilla pieces make a perfect brew. I found the evening blend really easy to drink and it helped me drift off to sleep peacefully. During the 4 week trial, I lost a total of 8lbs, which is over half a stone, so I am pretty pleased with the outcome. The 30-day programme is available to buy from www.TheSkinnyCaffe.com prices at £39.99.

Authentic Italian Cuisine With Gourmio

We love to try out new recipes and I love the idea of food subscription boxes that give you the opportunity to do so. I was contacted by Gourmio and offered the chance to try some of their authentic Italian recipes. Gourmio is a London based company selling ready to cook recipe boxes that contain everything you need to cook the real food of Italy in your home. Their mission is to help at home cooks discover the authenticity and simplicity of Italian cuisine.
The box I received contained 3 main meals for me to cook and try out. When you make your purchase you can add as many recipes as you like to your box, choosing from starters and main courses, there is also a section on the website for vegetarian and gluten free recipes. I filmed a video for our Youtube channel showing what the contents of our box were, apologies for the poor quality my camera is away being repaired.

I was really impressed with the packaging of the recipes, they were all packaged separately in their own boxes, so easy to store and keep in order. All of the recipes were wrapped in lambs wool and ice packs to keep them fresh for delivery. I was also really impressed with the length of the use by dates on the contents, some will keep fresh right through until July. I found all the recipe cards really easy to follow, they provide written and photographic instruction which is great. We couldn't wait to try the recipes and got stuck in straight away.
The first recipe we tried was roast pork in wild fennel which claims to be an authentic taste of Calabria. The pork is one of the fundamentals of the traditional Calabrian cuisine and is used in many recipes. The pork is seasoned with wild dill, a popular wild herb found in the centre and the south of Italy. The recipe easily serves 2 and it's a simple 4 step recipe that only requires the use of 2 pans, so no excessive dishes to wash afterwards. We both really enjoyed the pork, it was so tender and the steamed potatoes and courgette compliment it beautifully, we would definitely try this recipe again.
Next up was one we were both excited to try as we both a good pasta dish. The rich creamy tagliatelle alla Ferrarese was a definite hit and again such a simple recipe. The fresh pasta was a delight and cooked beautifully. Once combined with the creamy sauce, prosciutto and spinach the dish was amazing. We both thought the portion size was very generous and even after a generous portion each, there were some leftovers. 
The last dish we tried was lasagne alla bolognese and who doesn't love a lasagne. I have eaten many and made few, so I was apprehensive to try this one. I didn't quite have a dish the right size for the lasagne sheets so sadly it curled up a bit at the edge whilst cooking. It was however really delicious still and simple to make. The sauces came in separate tubs that you simply heat though and they layer up and top with parmesan. It took a few minutes to construct and then it just had to go in the oven. This would be a perfect dish to pre-prepare and just pop in the over at dinner time.

I really enjoyed all 3 recipes and the quality of the ingredients was superb. I was also surprised at how easy the recipes were to make, it shows good food doesn't have to be complicated. The box has given us a real taste of Italian cuisine and left us wanting more. With recipes starting from just £10 I urge you to give them a try, they are ideal for date night or even just a special night in.

Weekly Weigh In - 24/05/17

So I'm back with the weekly weigh in posts, I've been a pretty poor slimming worlder for the past 12 weeks. In fact, I will go as to far as to say I have just wasted my money for the last 12 weeks as I haven't really stuck to plan. I knew it wasn't the right time to rejoin, but I knew if I didn't rejoin when I did I never would and I would be in a far worse position. So here is my first weekly weigh in vlog, if you watch don't forget to subscribe.

Life With a Teenager On The Spectrum

Parenting is hard, in the 13 years since I have become a parent I have been thrown some curve balls, but nothing prepared me for parenting a teenager on the spectrum.........

It's funny how thinks seemingly can change overnight, isn't it? But I suppose if I think back they have been slipping for a while, but you gloss over the cracks and carry on. But things have come to a head with Mr L and we have had to have him rereferred to the psychologist for some help with his moods and anger issues. He's such a pleasant boy one minute and an absolute angry man the next. I am sure it is the combination of hormones, puberty and autism. I know it can't be easy for him, he's going through it, but it's not half hard for us at the moment. I have been threatened, hit, verbally abused and had to watch while he smashes his room to pieces. We have the complete inability to be able to judge his mood, he's likes a roller coaster. We can send him off to school happy as Larry and get a phone call 10 minutes later saying he is laying in the middle of the classroom refusing to move or do anything. The phone calls from school are becoming more frequent and he is being sent home a lot more than he used to.
I have used all the usual tacks to get to the bottom of things, talking to him, bribing him, taking things off him, grounding him and even ignoring him. I don't now if we are doing right or doing wrong, are we making things worse even?

We are now 4 appointments in with CAHMS and Mr L has only attended one of them as he absolutely refuses to engage with the doctor. This isn't new to us, he will never communicate with anyone, so it left to me and his Dad to explain his issues. We have managed to pick out that sleep is an issue, his PICA is going crazy at the moment as is his stimming. He seems to be getting a lot of anxiety about things that are not really important but are obviously important enough to him to cause anxiety. From chatting with the psychologist he thinks all the issues are interlinked, yep it's taken 4 appointments to get to this stage!!!! Tell me something I don't know! Our last appointment was yesterday and he is now deciding whether we need a referral to psychiatry for his PICA and stimming, they want to work out if there is a reason behind the behaviour. The PICA especially, we can't work out whether he is eating because he is hungry or eating for sensory satisfaction. It's a really difficult one as Mr L refuses to talk, he has turned into a proper grumpy teenager and I am lucky to get a snort off him! We constantly find empty packets in his room and he is even eating dried uncooked noodles, toilet roll, chewing coat hangers, pieces of wood he has pulled of his draws and chewing the metal frame on his bed. I could go on the list is endless, I worry about the effects on his health obviously, but he just can't stop. I'm hoping psychiatry can help us work out if its anxiety triggered or just a sensory issue so we can try and alleviate his symptoms. For the time being, we will bob on as we usually do and cope as best we can with the support of our fantastic family.

Tangle Angel Detangling Brush Review

We have massive issues doing Skye's hair and it's a constant daily battle. I have tried a variety of combs and brushes to no avail. We have now gotten to the stage where we run our fingers through her hair after a bath as best we can and her hair is always up in a side ponytail which makes it easy to tame. Some days can be better than others we can get a wide tooth comb through it if we are lucky. Skye has sensory processing disorder, which is a condition that comes alongside autism for some people. This means her senses are heightened so with the head being a sensitive part of your body this is why hair brushing is a sore subject.
The team over at Tangle Angel have sent us one of their professional detangling brushes to try out and see if it makes ours and Skye's life easier. The tangle angel is a professional detangling brush that can be used on both wet and dry hair and can be used on all hair types. The keyring version retails at £4.95 and the large style is £12.95. They come in a range of beautiful colours and styles to suit your style. They are even suitable for use when blow-drying your hair, so it's a great all round brush for the whole family. They even do a pet angel for detangling your pet's fur, I think my hairy Honey could really use one!
The tangle angel is packed with amazing features, special antibacterial additives are embedded into the plastic so your brush is incredibly hygienic. It has great anti static propeties that prevent fly away hairs and leave then soft and smooth. I mentioned above that you can use this for blow drying your hair, it is, in fact, safe to use up to 115oc and the bristles will still keep their shape. My favourite feature is the ergonomonc shape, the handle is a good length and really comfortable to hold.
All these wonderful features would mean nothing if I couldn't get it anywhere near Skye's hair, but she was instantly interested in the tangle angel as she said it looked like a fairy. I asked if I could use the fairy to brush her hair and she was a little reluctant but allowed me to. We tried it on her dry hair first, it had been washed the night before so was quite soft and bouncy and the tangle angel just flew through her hair. She wasn't comfortable with me doing it but she allowed me to and I managed to brush her whole head. It easily went through her hair and there was no lugging or snagging when I did it. She even happily took the tangle angel and had a go herself.
I knew the biggest issue would be brushing her hair when it was wet because it get so knotty, hair washing isn't the easiest with her either, so its a quick shampoo and no conitoner. I was nervous as to how it would go which is why I left it till after she was used to the tangle angel to try. After a week of use she is happily using it on her dry hair and I am finally able to brush her hair sucessfully each day. I am pleased to say that she allowed me to brush her hair when it was wet and for the first time ever she has gone to bed without knots in her hair. Its made hair related issues so much easier for us and Skye loves her fairy brush!
