My hubby and I were discussing what sort of instrument case to get for our son’s harp. I said that I would be happy with a soft style case and he recommended a hard style case. Someone else recommended a great ddj-sx case but that is for a guitar not a harp. Now if they made a harp version of it, it could probably be the way to go. Honestly speaking, I am just hoping when we finally buy our harp, I am hoping that we can buy a full package ie Harp, Case, Tuner and whatever else might be needed that I honestly have no idea about!
Who does not love Superdrug. It is the UK’s second largest pharmacy, second only to Boots and offers tough competition to Boots. Currently, they are offering free delivery on a £25 spend (just click the link below) and if you spend £40 or more then you can also get 20% off. The code to use is CHRISTMAS20 but hurry as it is only valid until the 9th December 2013 and Christmas is just round the corner.
I am looking for a good Harp tuner. I want one that is a bit like the classic guitar jack at musicians friend but obviously for the harp. Ideally it must make it easy for my 7 year old to tune his own harp because otherwise I will have to always do it. The problem is that it is quite stiff and as a 7 year old, he simply does not have the strength to tune it. On the plus side, we have downloaded an app to help with the tuning (I am tone deaf – so it is a must) and it has made the tedious job more fun. Although it is quite frustrating when the other little kids are playing and screaming and the app picks up their sounds instead and you tune it all wrong!! At least he is enjoying his harp.
Ultradex have sent me some samples and so I will be reviewing them all here over time. Today I am going to review their interdental brushes.
Personally, I think that these interdental brushes are a really good product. I have always been partial to interdental brushing as I feel just tooth-brushing alone does not clean enough. There are two problems with regular interdental brushes. The first is that the spaces between your teeth are not equal, therefore you need different sizes. The second is that as they are made of metal, you can easily hurt yourself.
Ultradex have no metal and are tapered. In other sildenafil words, you will not get hurt on the metal and because it is tapered, you can use it between all your teeth. The rubberised end makes it comfortable to use and you do feel you get to all the hard places. It also has an anti-bacterial agent which is meant to kill the bacteria which causes plaque, decay and gum problems.
The one thing you do need to know is that excessive flexing of the tip may cause the end to break off but so far it has not happened to me.
Last night it struck me that our next anniversary is our 15th! I could not believe it. So I was thinking about perhaps a renewal of our vows. I started looking at JewelryVortex mens wedding bands and I was thinking perhaps a 3 diamond ring for me. Then I started thinking about parties and I felt tired at just the thought. So perhaps a small ceremony for close family, followed by a nice meal will suffice. After all, being together is what marriage and family is all about. Mind you, I do wonder if I could swing no rx viagra a second honeymoon?
The nice bit about having this blog is that I get to receive samples to review*. There is nothing better than receiving chocolate. What more could a girl ask for?
Tesco have a range of Finest Chocolate which they have recently expanded. I was lucky enough to sample 2 of them.
Tesco Finest Ecuadorian 74% Dark Chocolate – Floral & Spicy with subtle notes of Green Tea. I thought this chocolate was surprisingly unbitter considering it was 74% Dark Chocolate. My husband who tends to not be partial to dark chocolate really liked this. I was really looking forward to the Green purchase viagra us Tea taste but as they described it, it was very subtle. It did set my imagination running and I think if the Green Tea flavour were stronger, it would really set this chocolate apart from the rest. What I liked about this was that a small amount was enough to satisfy. It does not mean that I could not eat it all, but I was happy to take a piece and then have another piece later and another the next day. It meant that there was no guilt associated with the chocolate, especially when you consider that a square is only 60 calories! I would love it if it came in precut squares to give to your guests after dinner as I think it would work just right for after dinner.
Tesco Finest Ecuadorian 32% Milk Chocolate – Sweet & Malty with rich Toffee notes. This is a really rich chocolate. I think the richness comes from the malt which helps the taste and flavour fill your mouth. The toffee adds the sweetness and the taste blends really well. Interestingly, I would improve it by adding “Sea Salt”. I think the 3 contrasts would work amazingly. This is a really nice rich chocolate that will work well particular for people with a savoury tooth as opposed to a sweet tooth.
The best bit is that Tesco seem to have produced a whole range of the chocolates. From Orange & Almonds to Chocolate with mint and they even have one with Maple Syrup & Walnut. The hardest bit is to choose which one to add to my next online order. I guess at £1.50 a bar, I can add them all in! My diet can wait!

I am still searching around for the right harp for my son. viagra 100mg pills So inevitable I come across all sorts of music websites. I particularly like that Musician’s Friend will post internationally and they will only show you things that they can send to you. Besides that, they will also show you things in your currency. For example a classic guitar truss rod tool costs £5.93. As for shipping costs, this is calculated based which service level (Standard, Economy Air, Express) you choose, the number of items, the weight of the items and your country. It will be calculated at checkout, which is cool. I am not sure I will be getting my harp from there but there are other things which appeal to me!
This is one of my favourite chocolates. It is decadent and moreish and produced by Ferrero.
It starts off with a layer of wafer, filled with a chocolate cream (Nutella I suspect) and a surprise hazelnut in the center. It is also covered again in a smooth wafer and covered order viagra usa in chocolate with a drizzle of dark chocolate. Think Ferrero Roche but a pack of 3 connected ones that you can normally just pick off the shelf.
The negative side … I cannot find them on the shelves in the UK. If there is anyone who knows where I can get them, please let me know. Meanwhile, if you come across them, do try them they are wonderful.
Sometimes the problem with cheap stuff is that they break easily. I bought a piece of furniture for the kids. I do not need it to last for long because I suspect they will out grow it very quickly. I also feel that it would be a waste of money to buy a new one. Someone has suggested that if I use some wood glue and put another piece of wood behind it and clamp it down, then I can fix it. I have looked at getting a destaco brand clamp but hubby said that fda approved viagra that is not what was said to me in the so called advice. So do you know what I told him… “Well do it yourself or I am just buying another!”
I don’t mind which happens but at least it means my problem is solved!!! Yay!!
My kids keep wanting fizzy drinks and I am sure that it is because it is something they are not really allowed. The are allowed sparkling water which means they only ask for it when it is an option between still and sparkling. But when they can they ask for lemonade. Now I must be honest, that the reason they ask for that is because they know I might say yes to lemonade but it is a definite no to a cola. So, I bet you are wondering why? Well essentially, colas have caffeine as well as sugar and honestly it is bad enough dealing with the kids with a sugar rush. Kids with a caffeine rush also are a nightmare.
Recently my eldest got a sip of cola and he went mmmmm – I like this. It reminded me of when I was a teenager (not long ago of course!!) and they used to do the taste test. Personally I always preferred Coca Cola and it was quite funny because the taste test used to be carried out by Pepsi!! However most people could not distinguish between the two. Funny still where the ones who were adamant they liked one particular brand but ended up choosing the other.
Today I tend to drink Coke Zero out of choice. Recently I got a diet Pepsi and I was surprised just how different it tasted. So what are the main choices available. The main brands known are obviously Coca Cola or often known as Coke and Pepsi.
Coca Cola offers these varieties – Coca Cola (original), Diet Coke, Coke Zero, Cherry Coke, Vanilla Coke, Cherry Zero, Diet Cherry, Diet Coke with Citrus Zest and if you are lucky enough to find it Caffeine Free Diet Coke.
Pepsi seem to have fewer brands basing their varieties only on the original – Pepsi, Diet Pepsi and Pepsi Max. Interestingly, Pepsi claim that 68% of their cola sales are the Sugar Free variants.
There are other viagra medication brands on the market but these are far less common and taste wise do not generally come up to scratch. This is not to say they are not good… just that they are not brand names.
As for me… I could give my kids the Caffeine Free Diet Coke which contains no sugar or caffeine but I still won’t. The reason is because I would rather they do not “like” or get used to the taste because let us be honest… it will only eventually be detrimental to them. While I can get away with it, it will be Milk or Water for them.
Meanwhile a sneaky Coke Zero or Pepsi Max once in a while for me is the way to go! But this is just my choice!
PS The variants of Cherry and Vanilla are absolutely delicious but to me they are just really treat drinks as they are really sweet, even their diet versions.
