It’s not until you try something that’s really is fit for a job sometimes, that you realise what you have been missing.
We have a shredder, its old, and was extremely cheap, even back then. We felt great that we actually had a shredder and used it. Yes, it jammed all the time. Yes, I was wary if any of the children were in the same room as it. And no, It didn’t shred more that one or two sheets at a time. But we had one right?
How wrong could I be! As soon as the Fellowes DS-1 shredder entered our home we realised quite where we had been going wrong.
- It’s powerful – shredding up to 11 sheets at a time.
- It’s safe. Patented SafeSense® Technology stops shredding when hands touch the paper entry.
- It has a huge bin (18 L) Made of a wire mess its much easier to dispose of the shredding.
- It runs for longer, huge bonus!
- Higher security cross-cut shreds 11 sheets per pass into 3.9 x 35mm cross-cut particles (Security Level 3)
- It actually looks good! Its slimline, so doesn’t take up much space in the home.
- IT HAS NOT JAMMED ONCE!
In today’s society, unfortunately more and more we are aware that we need to keep our personal identity safe, with the rise of Identity Fraud.
It is highlighted on sites such as Identity Theft UK how important this is. Keeping documents safe, and disposing of them by shredding is highly recommended as the best action.
Identity fraud continues to rise with 4 million victims in UK alone. Identity Theft UK reported ‘consumers continue to be complacent with their identities’.
So now we have our new shredder we really feel that we are doing all that we can to prevent identity fraud. It not only feels safe and powerful, I feel it really is doing the job I’m asking it to do. Oh…. and I’ve agreed with my neighbour she can have the shredding for her Guinea Pigs, and the girls get to visit them so it’s a win win!
I promised last week to update the blog with a little more information about Forest Holidays, which offer year round holidays and short breaks in various locations throughout the UK. These locations include Scotland, North Yorkshire, Heart of England and Cornwall.
I visited the Sherwood Forest location, taking in the surround forest as well as seeing examples of a cabin, the main reception, on site shop and café. Continue Reading

I love this idea, the thought of a year-long project and the discipline it will take, will be good for me. It’s a great excuse to really to get to grips with my new camera too, thanks Tall Dad!
Which in turn will hopefully make me able to produce a really amazing bunch of memories for my family. Hopefully my photography might improve as well?
So I am writing this post more as a promise to myself (I’ll feel I can’t back down now) so here’s what I need to do:
1. Bring my camera everywhere…I’ve also got my phone for emergencies.
2. Make sure I remain varied. Whether it means I make sure I have at least one photo each week or fortnight that is of a completely different theme, trying to stretch myself.
3. Be disciplined, try to post once a day, but if you need to collect up each week of photographs to submit, this is ok too. If too busy don’t have to much of a backlog, I’ll start to begrudge the project.
5. Make time to read the instruction book!
6. Use photography programmes. (again experiment)
7..Follow your own rules!
So starting from the 1st of January The Ana Mum Diary 365 project, let the fun begin .

Life is precious.
I have had a wake up call today.
I needed it.
I have a confession. I take my life, love and family for granted, it almost as if I see clearly now.
“When something does not insist on being noticed, when we aren’t grabbed by the collar or struck on the skull by a presence or an event, we take for granted the very things that most deserve our gratitude.”
I’m not different to any one else I know, but feel as if the invisible veil has been lifted.
I need to keep focused on my goals.
Life is precious.
