Fix It With ToyFix – Giveaway

There has been a revolution in our house! First came the rebellion however. It was Momma Bear versus the toys and Momma Bear was losing fast. It was Christmas 2017.

Sugru: fix that thing Review & Giveaway

Sugru: fix that thing Review & Giveaway

Yikes! I am the worst at DIY. I have been known to take quite a lot of short cuts when it comes to those small and annoying jobs that need doing. I own three hammers, a wicker basket with miscellaneous nails, screws and what nots. Let’s be honest, I really shouldn’t go anywhere near my DIY stash and just wait for the handyman. I can hang pictures, decorate superbly well. I’m all about the feng shui (… I’m not. I place furniture at angles and misuse space but it’s my space and I love it). I’m pretty nifty with a paint brush and a wad of sand paper. The fun stuff, if you ask me. So needless to say, when something goes awry, it’s usually left on the long finger until we have enough jobs worthy of our handymans time! Since we moved into our country bungalow last year there are plenty of little itty bitty jobs that annoy me. They need to be fixed but are too small to get someone in and too annoying for us. The list keeps getting longer. This weekend I managed to tick a few things off the list with Sugru. What’s Sugru you ask. Well, oh me, oh my, it’s a mouldable glue that even I can’t mess up! Read on for our review and a giveaway…
