fantastic-blog-title-30oct16For those of us who aren’t able to afford a regular cleaning service, there is little more luxurious than someone coming into our home and giving it a deep clean. I don’t know about you, but I get excited about the little things in life. Being spared the cleaning makes me ridiculously happy.

I cook from scratch, which means that my oven is used every single day, often multiple times. With such heavy use it becomes very grimy, and as you can see in the photos below, it was pretty gross this time last week. 

before-and-after-collageLuckily Fantastic Services paid me a visit, and the entire oven is now sparkly and new looking. I kid you not, I could eat my dinner straight off any part of it.

It’s all about the outsourcing

If you read articles detailing how super busy, successful people manage to do it, I guarantee they will tell you that they outsource anything and everything to make their lives easier.

Fantastic began in 2009, and started out as a two man band focusing solely on cleaning. They’ve grown considerably since then, and now offer a whole host of services:

  • cleaning
  • handyman
  • gardening
  • removals
  • rubbish removal
  • builders
  • pet care
  • pest control

cleaning-the-oven-door-collageA fantastic experience

My experience with Fantastic was first class. The cleaners were punctual, professional, thorough and didn’t leave behind a trace of mess. The job took just over an hour and a half in total.

If you’re based in or around London, the new Go Fantastic app makes it silly easy to book a Fantastic service. It took me less than three minutes to organise my oven clean on my phone last Saturday evening, and the cleaners were knocking on my door at 10am on Monday morning. You really can’t argue with that.

Service fees start at just £13, why not give Fantastic a go next time you need a job done? You can claim an exclusive £10 discount off your first booking, until December 2017, by using the coupon code mumtries at checkout.

go-jetters-collageThere was silly amounts of joy here this week when we discovered that the new series of Go Jetters is being shown. From my perspective, as a parent and home educator, Go Jetters encompasses everything that’s good about kids TV.

Not only are the characters fun, engaging and un-annoying, the best thing (for me) is that my children are stealth learning about the world while they watch. You really can’t ask for more as far as I’m concerned.

My littlest two Clara (4) and Freddy (2), will absolutely adore the brand new range of Go Jetters toys that came out recently. They are well made, sturdy toys, which would make perfect pressies for all the Go Jetters-mad kids out there. I can’t wait to see C & F’s faces on Christmas Day when they open their presents. Which also happen to be…

My top picks from the Go Jetters range!

Go Jetters Jet Pad

go-jetters-jet-padA must for all Go Jetters fans, this is The Jet Pad (aka Go Jetters HQ), as seen on the show. The toy comes fully equipped with action figure Kyan, a fab projection feature and rolling wheels. It’s a musical toy with lots of fun sounds, phrases and the theme tune, so your little ones can sing along when they go on their next geographical adventure! Once opened, the projector flips to reveal eight landmark images on the control panel, which your child has to ensure haven’t been glitched. They can use the ladder to climb up to the second floor, and slide Kyan along to see the bay doors open, which reveal a secret room. Inside they will find two click ons, and they can place Kyan in his G.O. boots, and manually extend his G.O. grab arm. For the full spec, please click here.

Action Grimbler

go-jetters-grimblerAs all Go Jetters fans will know, the team have to work together to save the world’s most famous landmarks from their naughty nemesis, Grandmaster Glitch, who travels around the world inside his Grimbler. Is it a rocket, is it a spacecraft or is it a submarine? From what I can gather, it’s a combination of all three, and he never travels alone. The Action Grimbler comes complete with Grandmaster Glitch and a sidekick Grimbot. Your child can pretend to glitch landmarks, so that the Go Jetters can unglitch them. The Grimbler has rolling wheels and Glitch’s moustache pops in and out as you roll it along, which is very cool indeed. For the full spec, please click here.

Plush Talking Ubercorn


Ubercorn is our favourite character from the series, and I knew I had to get two of these, otherwise I’d have world war three on my hands between Clara and Freddy come Christmas Day! This super soft and fluffy talking Ubercorn has got some seriously funky songs that he sings when you squeeze his belly. Ubercorn is part mentor, part disco dancer and part geography guide to the Go Jetters, and this gorgeous, fun toy does not disappoint. For the full spec, please click here.

Childreach and Cabana Competiton

 We recently spent a fabulous day at the CopaCABANA beach on London’s Southbank, and were introduced to the wonderful charity Childreach International. Having been exposed to a lot of child poverty when I was in Asia in my twenties, boots on the ground charities are very close to my heart.

We will work in communities to develop and demonstrate best practice, engaging and collaborating with key players to take our work beyond the boundaries of our organisation.”
