Story Time: The Extremely Disappointing House Viewing

Story Time: The Extremely Disappointing House Viewing Previously on my blog I’ve mentioned that Marc and myself currently rent the house we are in at the moment. The house is nice and spacious, the rent is reasonably priced and we are happy enough where we are. However, we really want to purchase our own home. For over a year, we’ve been saving up a deposit for a house. Currently, we have six months left on our tenancy before we either sign up for another year or move on. The plan is, and always has been to not renew our tenancy and three…

How I Am Gradually Whitening My Teeth

  How I Am Gradually Whitening My Teeth When it come to my teeth I’ve always been self-conscious. I’ve got a slight overbite as well as an off centre smile, similar to that of Tom Cruise.

The jar shape is practically the same and even the label font and image are identical.…

Sandman Signature Hotel Newcastle Review

On Friday 12th February Marc and I decided to stay over at the Sandman Signature Hotel in Newcastle for an evening to celebrate Valentine’s weekend. If you’ve not heard of Sandman Signature Hotel, its based right in the heart of Newcastle-Upon-Tyne city centre. It is right across the road from St James Park, home to Newcastle United Football Club and a mere walk away from Eldon Square (a shopping centre here in the Toon) and there are also lots of bars, restaurants and fun things to do nearby, literally the hotel is 5 minutes away from China Town and The…
