Our best purchase this year has been the Karcher jet wash. We have a small cement yard that is shielded from the sun so it turns green and mossy very easily.
We recommend a Dyson vacuum for power, here is our Dyson small ball, it is perfect for the job, smaller and lighter than the other ball Dysons so perfect for stair carpets. We couldn't be without ours.
Although my husband has not suffered any hair loss to date, it is a sensitive topic for many men and one that has affected some of our friends to a much greater degree recently.
With this in mind, I thought it would be a good idea to take a look at the options currently available to men who suffer from male pattern baldness in the UK, and publish the results of this research on my blog. This isn’t by any means a scientific analysis of course, just some information that I have collected and wanted to share with you, my online friends.
Are There Any Really Effective Solutions?
In the past, a wig was the only real solution to hide male pattern baldness and the quality of wigs on offer was variable to say the least. Thankfully, for men who suffer from this condition today, the quality of wigs on sale has improved considerably and there are even a couple of non-invasive treatments available that have been shown to be effective at stopping, and in some cases reversing, the process of hair loss in older males.
According to stories in the news, up to 50% of men will suffer male pattern baldness at some stage in their lives, which is why the solutions listed below have attracted so much attention in recent years.
Whichever option you or your partner chooses, I sincerely hope that you are happy with the results and would love to hear about your experiences. Please feel free to leave a comment if you have already tried any of these solutions for male pattern baldness.

5) Replace all of the light switches and sockets.
We currently have white plastic ones at the moment but would love to upgrade them to some lovely matt silver ones, I believe the finishing touches really do make all the difference, don't you think?
So that's our most recent list. What jobs are you planning on doing next?

Well, allow me to give you a tip! Instead of spending hours searching all over the web for the best deals, let me tell you about one website which can give you access to thousands of the best voucher codes available in just a couple of clicks.
With most people having a smart phone these days, it really couldn't be any easier to save yourself money when shopping online. Simply by remembering to check for any discount voucher codes either on the website, or by downloading the My Favourite Voucher Codes app.
Another tip of mine is to keep a list of gift ideas etc with you, and check various prices in different shops or on websites. By doing this I have often saved up to 50% just by shopping around or using a voucher. Quite often companies will also have discount delivery codes too, you just need to get into the habit of checking every time you buy - every pound counts and it will soon add up.
With thousands of the most up to date voucher codes available from more than 4,000 of the UK’s favourite retailers, what have you got to lose?!
Happy shopping, and don't forget to pop back and share what deals you found!
But whether you’re thinking about wallpapering the living room, re-tiling the bathroom, or building a conservatory to create your ‘dream home’, it’s important to think about protecting your property too.
With this is mind, National Home Security May Day, sponsored by home security specialist Yale, will take place on spring bank holiday Monday (30th May), with a run-up throughout May. The campaign will provide numerous home security tips and advice so that we can all ensure our homes are protected in time for summer.
There is also a marked increase in burglaries during summer months due to larger numbers of people going on holiday and leaving their houses empty, unsecure and unguarded. Simple, low cost security options can make a huge difference, and many ‘smart’ security products are a lot easier to fit than you might think.
As part of the May Day campaign, National Home Security Month are offering one lucky person the chance to win £100 worth of Love2shop vouchers and a Yale Smart Home Alarm & View Kit. To get involved, check out the Facebook page by searching for 'National Home Security Month'.
This year, home electronics retailer Maplin is also getting involved and will be offering radio and social media competitions, as well as in-store and online promotions, so keep your eyes peeled.

For example, did you that around two thirds of women suffer from some form of incontinence during pregnancy? Perhaps a small leak when coughing or sneezing or unfortunately for some, a more pronounced leak. There is no need to suffer in silence Ladies!
With a little Lady tap dancing on my bladder all day and night, I started to feel that I was losing control and would sometimes leak a little - pretty understandable with an 8lb plus baby using your bladder as a bean bag! Once you find someone to open up to about it, it is surprising to know how many Women suffer with this during pregnancy.
I would recommend visiting Hartman Direct where they sell a huge range of incontinence products to help you deal with pregnancy incontinence. The website helps you work out which product would best suit your needs using the handy selector tool. It will ask a few multiple choice questions about your situation, before recommending the products they think would work best for you.
Please don't suffer in silence Ladies.

This is the company’s first starter kit and it looks great. Take a look at the Mini Volt 40W Kit by Council of Vapor here and you’ll find the smart Mini Volt 40W Box Mod with a carbon fibre grip and a black rubberised paint coat.
When many people think of vaping, they naturally think of “cig-a-like” devices – e-cigarettes that are designed to look and feel at least a little like smoking a tobacco cigarette. This can sometimes be a help to people who are looking to use e-cigarettes to help them quit or cut down on the amount they smoke because they can get that nicotine hit they crave in a familiar way. These types of e-cigs mirror the action of smoking a regular cigarette, with similar hand motions and the nicotine delivered to the back of the throat – albeit in a cleaner vapour format rather than a cloud of acrid smoke.
Many vaping connoisseurs feel that box mods – vaping devices that tend to be rectangular – actually deliver a much better vaping experience than their more traditionally shaped counterpart. Council of Vapor’s Mini Volt 40W is one of the smallest box mods on the market. It fits comfortably in the palm of the hand and can also fit into a handbag or even a pocket without much fuss. It is certainly compact, measuring just 56mm x 35mm x 22mm, but it has more than enough power to pack a punch.
Up until now, if you wanted decent power in such a small size, you would probably have been stuck with a direct-connection mechanical mod that left you quite literally tied to a wall socket power supply. The Mini Volt 40W has a 1300 mAh Internal Battery and comes with three pre-set power modes: Soft, Standard and Power for when you need that extra boost.
The kit also comes with the Mini Volt Sub Ohm Tank. This is another compact piece of kit, with a diameter of just 22mm. It is just enough to hold 2ml of e-liquid, but this is another element that cannot be judged on size alone. The dual adaptive airflow system can be adjusted to provide you with just the kind of vape you like.
It comes pre-installed with a 0.8-ohm coil and there’s a spare, making it perfect for vapers who like the extra vapour produced by sub-ohm vaping. The kit also comes with a spare glass tube and a micro USB charger. In short, it has everything you need all in one place, whether you’re an experienced vaper or just starting out. You can find more options in this site.
