Bigging up Betterware!

I think I’m probably too old to use the term, ‘bigging up’ but it’s done now so I’ll stick with it! Anyway, to get on topic…I’ve had a couple of orders from Betterware in the last two weeks and I just wanted to say how impressed I am with their online ordering system. I’ve had Betterware…

103 / 365 – Kitchen makeover, end of day four

Thanks to my wonderful hubby, we now have cupboards back on the wall and part of the new floor down. I don’t think anyone, in the universe, ever disliked a floor as much as I dislike the one that was down when we moved in and that we’ve had ever since. I really can’t wait to…
