Trying Something A Little Different

To say my second trimester has been tiring is probably an understatement. I’ve found getting up at 6am to commute to work even harder than usual, and by 2-3pm in the afternoon, I’m exhausted again. Annoyingly I’ve become more of a night owl of late and find myself pretty awake at 10-11pm compared to my first trimester when I slept a lot. Bob has still been able to get to sleep so there has been nights where I’ve found myself watching something pointless on Netflix just to make myself tired.

When CasinoEuro got in touch looking for people to try out their site, I was really intrigued. Having used online bingo/casino sites in the past and enjoyed myself, I was more than open to trying this site and seeing what it offered.

The sign up process was nice and simple and within minutes my account was set up. I started by browsing round the site and downloading the mobile app. There are various different tabs on the site including Slots, Jackpots, Live Casino, Table games and Video Poker.

It’s an easy to site to manoeuvre around and by downloading the mobile app, you can enjoy the site on the go.

I started off by playing a few simple slot games and placing some smaller amounts until I got used to what I was doing.

It was great when I started winning some amounts and even if they were only 10p, the thrill of getting a win regardless of amount is great for the adrenaline.

I started playing on the go when I was maybe on my lunch at work just to give myself a little “Me Time” or when I was walking down to the shops as placing a bet is so straight forward. On 1 particular slot, I placed a small amount and ended up with a bit of a bigger win and won £60+ which was amazing. I was thrilled with this size win having never won something this high in the past.

Again I had more of a browse and tried out the live casino offers as well as the slots. For me personally, the slots is much easier to get my head round but if you understand the casino area then completing them is much easier.

It’s important to remember to be responsible with these kind of sites and not go crazy spending money. I find setting myself a budget in terms of what I will spend is really important and helps to keep control. Overall I think the site is fab and the mobile app is even better for usability.

The New Toyota Yaris Hybrid

You may have seen on my Instagram recently, that I was lucky enough to borrow the new Toyota Yaris Hybrid for a weekend and drive it around York.

Earlier in the year I had the chance to borrow the CHR Hybrid for a weekend and was blown away by how much I loved the car. Having driven a Yaris for 3 years and learnt to drive in one, when the lovely people at Toyota got in touch again, I jumped at the chance to drive another new car.

I picked up the car on Friday evening and as usual Mark and the staff at Vantage Toyota York were extremely helpful in showing me the ins and outs of the car. The car was another automatic which I grew to love with the CHR after 9 years of driving a manual car, and again was a hybrid so used electric as well as fuel.

As part of borrowing the car for the weekend Toyota had a look at a part of my driving to see how much of it was using electric rather than fuel and the results are below:

Bidvine – Getting the best service

We’ve owned our home for coming up to a year in July and it’s crazy how time has flown. One thing that is apparent as a homeowner, is all the little jobs you never really knew about.

When we moved in, we had to pay for someone to come out and replace the boiler as well as having the fascias painted (the edging round your roof/garage etc). You don’t want to spend a fortune on these things but equally you want to get the best service possible without being ripped off. That’s where the power of the internet has come in these last 10 months and search websites like Bidvine have become ever so useful.

Bidvine works in a few easy steps:

Tell us what you need

Answer a few service-specific questions so we match your need to the right pros for the job.

Get bids and hire

Compare multiple bids as well as company profiles and reviews.

Expect great service

Hire and work with the pro directly. Review their work on Bidvine.

It’s as simple as that.

Some of the services offered on the site include:

Photography: portrait photography, headshot photography, family photography, wedding photography

Learning: Piano, Guitar, and Spanish lessons

Home: interior painting, handyman help, man with a van

Fitness and Wellness: personal training, yoga, nutritionist, and massage therapy

I used this when looking for some painting work on the exterior of the house. It asked me some simple questions such as the type of property, how many levels, how big the property is and so on before asking me to create account before the work was put to the pros. It is simple and a really great way to find professional service at the click of a few buttons. Perfect for the working professional themselves who always has their phone on them to correspond.

So if you’re looking for some work or need a professional to do a job for you then look no further.
