Getting the most out of a Soda Stream

Getting the most out of a Soda Stream

Oh how we love our Soda Stream! We are all lovers of soda or pop, as we like to call it, at The Ana Mum Diary house.  Gone are the days when the pop man (do you remember him?) in an open backed truck would collect all of the empty bottles and deliver more pop for the week. I love that idea even now, having drinks available for when you need them.

We have been testing out the Soda Stream Play (£69.99) for the past couple of weeks, together with the new collection of Del Monte flavourings for drinks. Three new flavours of syrup each one £3.99 – Orange, Caribbean and Tropical, all really delicious. Continue Reading

Fast Moving Travelator #PowerOfSoft

I’ve written quite a lot recently, about how my family is growing up, and life is changing. We seem to be on a fast paced travelator, that as I get older, speeds faster and faster.  I remember my own parents saying how ‘Children grow up so fast, they are adults in a blink of an eye’ never thinking that it could be true.

This is a really lovely video from Fairy showing just that, with a girl and her Mum through the passage of time. Continue Reading

Cineworld : Growing up with film

This week has been a constant reminder of the age gap of my children, and about how they are growing up far too fast for me.  With two girls, one just about to turn 12 (starting senior school) and one aged 5, when we go to the cinema, up until now we have always gone together.  Attempting to find something that both of the girls will enjoy.  Its worked well so far, we always visit the same cinema (Cineworld) in our local city centre – Nottingham, as I can get to it so easily.  I love the layout, and its very family friendly.

Samsung WW9000 Ecobubble Washing Machine : First Impressions

‘I think I’m a little bit in love’ – Me when the delivery guys pole up with the Samsung WW9000 Ecobubble to my house last week.

This washing machine looks like no washing machine I have ever used, or even seen before. It’s sleek sophisticated design just oozes style with its clean lines.  The fitters/delivery guys removed the packaging and slid it into its space in my utility, and straight away, it looked perfect, far better than my old washing machine.  No ugly buttons, or thin plastic drawers for washing powder, it looks like a power house of clothes cleaning.

It was very easy to plumb in, and took the same amount of time as the standard machine that I had before. The fittings, worked perfectly with our existing ones. Continue Reading
