I know this isn't the most interesting of pages to look at but I want and need to be compliant with any and all laws, around posting content online, please enjoy this picture of my boy, Billy,  sleeping.

I own any image used within this blog, unless expressly stated otherwise, with full credit given.

All opinions are my own and do not reflect that of another person or company. 

I have bought and paid for all items that I will review, unless otherwise stated, all opinions are honest and will be relayed back to the company that created them, with constructive criticism where applicable.

Sponsored posts will be easily recognisable with a disclaimer heading the post.

If you so choose to click on a affiliate link, I may get a small percentage of what you spend, however it will not be an extra charge to you. It's a bit of a win/win, you want to get the item and I get a little help too :) I will always say if the link is an affiliate link.
