Is it time to buy a new pillow? Do you have a good night sleep? Do you wake up feeling rested? Do you wake up with a tight or sore neck? Do you wake up with Pin’s & Needles in your hands? Do you wake up with headaches? Then it maybe time to look for a new pillow, and below we show you a few tips in how to choose a pillow.


Top seven tips to choosing the right pillow

  • Get the right head and neck support – Who would ever want to sleep awkwardly?
  • Become aware of the position you sleep in – That way you know what sort of height you want your pillow.
  • Consider a pillow that is hypo-allergenic – You can be surprised by how much can accumulate in your pillow over time. This includes, skin cells, dust mites, fungus and mould. Memory foam pillows are a great choice as they are hypoallergenic and usually recommended for sufferers of asthma and allergies.
  • Choose a pillow that is appropriate for your body size – if you are of a smaller frame you will not need as firm of a pillow compared to larger frames or people with broader shoulders.
  • Consider a pillow that is size adjustable – This is a great way to choose what pillow height is the most comfortable for you.
  • Keep track of how old your pillow is. Pillows should be replaced every 18 months to make sure you are getting the proper neck support.
  • Buy a pillow that is good quality and will last.

A tidy house is a happy house

A comfortable house is a great source of happiness. It ranks immediately after health and a good conscience.

When you’re a mom, cleaning happens because it has to. As much as you’d love to just ignore the spilled milk, cracker crumbs ground into the couch cushions, or random chocolate hand prints on walls, the mess must be dealt with — and usually quickly. One would think this would result in a sparkling clean home, but that’s not how it works. The minute one mess happens, your child has moved on to something else, leaving a continual trail of clutter to pick up. But there are a few tricks to keep things from barreling out of control.

Kitchen- do all washing up, clean sides, and mop floors and within 2hours its a tip with stones on floor (god knows where from), stains on counter top and a pile of washing up again

Bathroom- is full of mould anyway (so never looks totally clean) but when i clean it 1st person to use toilet makes it looks a mess,1st person to brush teeth leaves toothpaste all over sink

Bedrooms- tidy them then next thing clothes all over floor and just generally looking messy

Living room- don’t even get me started my dd has everything out and i mean everything but i feel harsh asking her to tidy it up when shes playing as she potters from one thing to another even when I’m breaking my neck tripping over things!
