Ten of the Worlds Most Amazing Creative and Unusual Caravans
Growing up in a family that didn’t have much money means that when it came to holiday time there was only one way of thinking…Caravans! From small 2 berths right up to 8 berth static ones in some never-heard-before place of the UK.

Ten of the Most Creative and Unusual Fireplaces You’ll Ever See
The problem with fireplaces is that the older open ones are a little dangerous (without supervision) and the newer ones are just plain boring! Well, what I want is something in-between, fresh, modern and a great talking point when people see it. So I thought I would try to see what is hot and what is not in the World …
Ten Crazy, Amazing and Unusual Swimming Pools
I have always loved swimming and as a child, I would stay in the pool for hours. When we vacationed at the sea I could swim until my skin looked old and wrinkled. We have a great pool at our current home that was made and fitted by Premier Pools. However, this post is not about my own pool, it …
Ten Cats on Bookshelves Filling Up Empty Spaces
Cat videos seem to make up about 50% of what You-Tube is. Sure, most of them are funny, some are educational and some even very fact-full, but some can be just plain weird. The other day I came across one of a cat reading a book! I had to wonder if cats could indeed read simple signs or images (not Shakespeare just …
Ten Crazy and Unusual Deep Fried Desserts You’ll Want to Try
Chip Shops in the UK are not so much a food restaurant more a way of life. This blog post all started while I was on holiday in Scotland and I saw something on the menu that repulsed me. For the grand total of £0.60, you could have a deep-fried Cadbury’s Creme Egg! I was horrified at the mere thought …
Ten Amazing and Funny Images of Snails You’ll Smile at
Quite a while ago now I did a post about “Top 10 Most Amazing Sea Slugs” and afterwards something made me feel rather sad. You see, the humble garden snail is never going to look as amazing or as colourful as a Sea Slug, but I thought I would try to bring some balance to the molluscan classes anyway. Can …
Ten of the Most Amazing and Unusual Checkers Sets Money Can Buy
While I do love a nice game of chess (as can tell in my previous post “Top 10 Best Chess Sets“) I have to admit that I enjoy the faster paced “Draughts” just as much. And I would not feel right if I didn’t give the humble game of international checkers just as much attention…
Ten Beautiful Photos of Rainbow Cats That Are Full of Colour
Did you know that as a result of their ability to catch mice Ancient Egyptians would turn cats into sacred feline deities? They called them ‘miw’ and as a result of their closeness and indeed deep fondness with our feline friends they went into mourning whenever a ‘miw’ passed away, much like we would do when we lose our pets …
Ten Amazing Designs and Recipes for Cakes Made With Chocolate Fingers
It can’t just be me that finds it amusing when I see what I thought was a UK ONLY product in a foreign country! Let me explain, you see while on holiday in Spain once I saw the UK much love favourite snack “Cadbury’s Milk Chocolate Fingers”. It brought such a smile to my face to see them in a different county …
Ten Amazing Ways to Reuse, Repurpose and Recycle Old Bicycles
About a year ago now, I and my little boy had great plans to go cycling every day and to have fun exploring the Welsh countryside with our bikes. So I got myself a bicycle and one that attached to the back of mine that my little boy could ride. But sadly my boy is now into football! He hates …
Ten Great Photos of Goats Climbing on Various Things
Let me tell you that living here in the Welsh Valleys is not a bad place to grow up at all, we have stunning views, amazingly friendly people and of course sheep. But something else we do have is goats! Many people will buy them as pets and let them run around free in the wild commons we have here. And …
Ten Amazing Houses Covered in Something Strange
For me, it is what is inside a house that makes it special. My own family home is fairly small and it looks like every other house on my street, but the things inside both me and my partner picked, designed, in fact, the whole inside of the house has the look and feel of our own personalities. But more and …
Ten of the Craziest and Most Unusual Ceiling Fans You Will See
Maybe it was being raised in a poor family that showed me that certain things mean a sign of wealth, that you have made it. A car, fridge freezer, big TV and ceiling fans are all a sign that things are going your way. While I don’t have a ceiling fan yet I do have a car, big TV, and fridge freezer! So maybe it is the …
