Breville Rio Collection From Tesco


We got to review the Breville Rio kettle in the most amazing green colour. Which will match the kitchen, This is a stainless steel traditional kettle, it looks like an old fashion one you put on the hob or your camping stove!!, it is well built and looks classy with a premium high gloss finish

The best thing about it, it has 3KW fast boil element which is concealed for easier cleaning and better efficiency, it’s a very quiet kettle. Even the power switch looks great it is illuminated blue. The water gauge is on the back so you can fill it easily this also helps with efficiency so there is no over filling and you can boil only what you need. With an easy pull off lid, the kettle is also on a 360o rotational base which makes it easy to use and it is not a heavy kettle, its capacity is 1.7 litres which is plenty to fill up my hot water bottle.The spout on the kettle is easy to pour with so there is no water going all over the work surfaces

Breville Rio kettle retails at £25

There is a range of different appliances in different colours that you can have to suit any kitchen from this fashionable range


Home, Here We Come……

So next week, we are having a new kitchen fitted. The man who lived here before us refused the upgrade, so when we moved in we were quick to ask about it. Now come Monday, it’s happening and we are moving out for a couple of days, back home to my Mums.

Now don’t get me wrong. I love my family, my Sister will be there also and we have become closer since she started helping me three days a week, however moving home, even for a few nights, scares me.

I lived there all my life so really it shouldn’t matter, but I am so used to having my own space and living as a family, it will be beyond odd for us.

And then comes my MS. Yes my amazing Sister looks after me and my parents are always there for me, but part of me worries about bringing this disease into there house. By that I mean the way we live. The way us as a family and my MS lives is different to any normal household.

Also every part of me likes to be comfortable, especially since my diagnosis. Familiarity is important to me and the crazy-ass monster in my mind.

I am very aware that I am bringing this into somewhere that isn’t used to it. We are a very close family, however unless you have lived through the good and the horrific of this damn disease, you don’t really understand it.

Getting up and pushing on it not always going to help, some people might think I need to ‘get on with it’ but that is so much easier said than done on a bad day. Bad days can sneak up and Hubby is getting used to noticing this and helping me through it.

Also, now my next treatment is just over a week away, I am really starting to feel it again. Literally counting down the days.

So, I am really hoping this next week goes smoothly and I have a nice kitchen at the end of it. I hope they still love me after four days!
