Dacia Stepway to Renault Kadjar

It was going to happen one day, the Stepway was going to go – not because it’s a bad car but because it was no longer suitable for my needs.

The main reason? It was a manual gearbox. For years I said I would never own an automatic and until now I never have, but due to the arthritis in my knee, the constant gear changing of a rush hour drive to and from work meant I was getting home in pain.

It’s been a while…..

A couple of months since my last post, but in my defence it’s been a very busy couple of months what with the new house.

Mothers Day Meal – Coach & Horses at Llangynidr

It’s Mother’s Day (well it is today, Sunday 11th March 2018) so today we’ve done nothing for our Mothers.

Gruum Razor & Lotion

I’m a cross between Shrek and a Yeti – my facial hair grows quicker than Tim Allen’s in ‘The Santa Clause’ – I shave, turn around and it’s back!  But that’s not my main problem, shaving irritates my skin, not just a little but a huge amount.

Dry or wet shaving, doesn’t matter, I’ve tried lots of razors and lots of lotions/gels/foams and the same thing happens, red blotchy skin and then it dries out and flakes like’s no-ones business.

I had an offer from 3 (the mobile network) from a free razor from Gruum, so I thought I’d give it a go.
