Earn Money Back With Uniform Tax Rebate

Not many people are aware that you can actually claim money back for the uniform you have to wear for work purposes. We all know expensive uniforms are and maintaining them is an extra costs all of us hard workers have to go through why pay out a large amount of your hard earned money on uniform and not expect anything back from it? With uniform tax rebate, you can claim back the money you have spent maintaing your uniform!

If you are wondering as to how much you can actually claim back, it is 20% of your annual earnings.

I am a security guard from Telford, I got a rebate of just under £100 through tax rebate!


I found the uniform tax rebate very easily. I thought it looked really easy. All I literally did was fill out a form, I didn’t have to do much else at all and then next minute you know I had a cheque through my front door! It was so simple and easy that it seemed unbelievable if I completely honest although it wasn’t a lot of money. I have been speaking to many of the people I work with and some other friends of mine too about claiming money for your uniform. It’s such a shame it has to be done by word of mouth. The government keeps it a secret almost which is a shame. This allowance is very useful and we should be more aware of this rebate system that is in place for us.

Hopefully with this post I have helped open your eyes on tax rebating and hopefully you too can earn some money back for your uniform.

We have all pretty much been there at some stage trying very hard to reduce our water usage and finding everyday task a struggle because of the worry about the usage, well now there is a solution to this problem so you do not have to worry about restricted your lifestyle to save up water. As we all know it is virtually impossible to monitor our water usage for day to day activities involving water.

Time To Stretch My Ears

I was looking at some ear stretchers because I have decided that I really want to start stretching my ears again. I know some of you at this point are probably thinking this is my first time stretching but it isn’t. I have had my ears already stretched to 5mm and I am about to start stretching them to the next size up which is 6mm.

The reason why I want to stretch my ears to an even bigger size is because I have really small ear lobes so most earrings that I really like do not suit me and earrings in general seem to start looking horrible due to my tiny lobes!! This is when I found out about ear stretching. At first I was like. “Oh my god, do I really want to be doing this?” But now that I have been through the process enough times I am more than comfortable with doing them again.

What I really like about my stretched ears is that the earrings actually look a lot better on me to my relief. I can also wear bigger jewellery too which is the plus side to all this.

What I have noticed quite a lot too that there is a large variety of jewellery you


can purchase for stretched ears so I really do not regret stretching them. Even if I did regret stretching them I can easily go back to a smaller size. I am really pleased with my stretched ears and I love the look I can achieve with them and I can’t imagine myself without them if I am completely honest!

My Sons Finals

MY son has his football tournament finals coming this weekend! I am so proud of him to make it this far. This is the reason why I wanted to make his day even special. I was thinking about hiring him a limousine to transport him and the boys to their next game, really make them feel special and help the moral of the whole team too. I was speaking to some of the parents of the boys to see if they would be interested in hiring a limo for their boys too.

This way would be a whole lot cheaper if we split the money of the limo between us and make it extra special for them. Luckily the parents agreed so we sat down together and thought about who to go with and what sort of limousine to hire for them. We also wanted to keep it a surprise too so we couldn’t ask the boys a thing.


After a long discussion and we also done a bit of research and we found limo hire london company we could hire a limo from and we also decided what limo to hire too! We decided we would hire a white hummer Limousine. It was one of the better ones that they had and we all agreed that it is probably the most favourite choice. I am so excited for his big event and to see the look on my sons face and the other boys too when they see their ride to the game!

Flooding In My Garden

I was having huge problems with my drainage pipe that was in my back garden. The problem I was having was that there seemed to be a blockage because the water wasn’t going down like it should and this was causing there to be a flood in my back garden when I decided to put the dishwasher on or wash up.


I tried many techniques I found on the internet to try and fix the blockage and I also used many drain unblock products to that are proven to work, but I had no luck at all. This is when I came to the conclusion that I would need the help of a professional. I called a drainage specialist over to have a look and hopefully solve what is causing the pile up of water. He was a very friendly guy and he was veyr efficient too. He located the problem and fixed it within an hour. He told there was an issue deep down the drain and it was easily addressed with the right equipment and expertise, thankfully!

I Purchased a Paper Shredder!

I purchased a paper shredder a few days ago because I was in need of one so I can destroy my important documents that I no longer needed. I bought a paper shredder from Shreddy GoGo. I found their website by searching online for cheap paper shredders. Their website is very attractive and they use a lot of primary colours, they also had a very big range of paper shredders and very good prices. They also have a live chat on their website which is ideal for me to speak to an advisor and find the perfect shredder at the price I am after too.


The paper shredder I bought it amazing too. It had a silent shred technology built in so it isn’t annoyingly loud when I shred something, it can also shred up to 8 sheets at a time and it has a 7 litre waste bin. Not only does the paper shredder come with all these great features it also has the ability to shred credit cards, paper clips and even CD’s. I advise you to visit their website for a paper shredder!

Injured My Back Whilst Moving Out

I was in the process of moving out. As you can probably imagine there is a lot of moving too do. Moving out is not as easy as it sounds and there is a lot of furniture and things that I have to move and load into the van. While I was moving all these heavy objects I manages to injure my lower back. I managed to do this because I was rushing it. It is very important take a great deal of care while moving heavy objects because back injuries can be very serious.


I regret not taking care of the way I was handling the heavy furniture because I now have to get continuous treatment for my back at a chiropractor in Birmingham. The chiropractic treatment is working thankfully, but If I handled the items with care I wouldn’t be in this situation this is why I am stressing my point. The chiropractic treatment isn’t cheap either. It is a continuous process that aids your recovery and can not be rushed.

We have already moved out for around 6 months now and we are expecting a baby boy very soon too!

This was one of the hardest tasks I have faced that involves shopping. I struggled so much to find a really nice engagement ring that was also affordable too. I spent days searching across jewellers comparing the deals and jewellery. Luckily for me, I did find one and I will be proposing to her at the end of the week.

Bathroom In The Process

I am in the process of having my bathroom re decorated. We have removed all the flooring and adding tiling and equipment, the sink, toilet etc. The one thing I really wanted to change in my bathroom was the radiator. The radiator was horrible and old so I knew it would be a good idea to get a replacement. A much more modern designed one. I spoke to a heating specialist and told them the situation in our bathroom and that I wanted to change the heating as well as getting some advice on what to install.

underfloor heating mats


They advised me to not to get a replacement at all, they said it would be a much better idea if you remove the radiator and install underfloor heating seeing as though you are already having work done on your flooring. After hearing all the benefits that come with installing this heating system i thought it would be ideal to do so. I ordered underfloor heating from them and I currently fitting it and the flooring to go with it.

Stocking Up My Office

I was out the other day trying to find new things for my office while stocking up all the things I need to stock up such as paper, pens, ink for my printer, pencils etc. I went to my local stationary shop to replenish all my supplies for my office and hope to find something new for my office. I was looking for the something that would be practical and not just a novelty item otherwise I would get distracted.


While I was looking around the store I saw a paper shredder that I really liked and it gathered a lot of my interest so I thought I would wait till I get home and look online for more shredders because the ones they had there were very limited. I found a website called shreddygogo.com. They specialise in paper shredders and they also have a very user friendly website as well as offering a very friendly service. They have an online chat where you can speak to an advisor about anything, I asked the advisor on what would be the best shredder for me and they gave me great advise and a shredder that is ideal for the job!

Best Way To Celebrate The Last Day At School

We had the best night ever! It has only been a few days since I have finished high school and that night was the greatest night ever! Because it was our last day we decided to hire a limousine for the night to make it an extra special night. The limo we ordered for the night was a luxury Hummer limousine in white. The limo was perfect! It had onboard entertainment, CD player, soft drinks, energy drinks, ice and almost everything you would expect form a limousine. We spent a lot of the day just getting chauffeured in a luxury limousine. It was the best night we have ever had.



We spent had great fun going bowling and playing pool as well that night and the limo was one of our best choices we made. It made the night that extra special and a much more memorable night. We used a limo hire in London and we split the money between 5 of us so the cost wasn’t too much luckily but it was worth it!

Hopefully She Says Yes

We have been together for almost 4 years and I thought that it is about time that I propose to my lovely girlfriend. I am very nervous about proposing because I am not quite sure on how I will propose to her and what the outcome will be! I am about 90% sure she will say yes but it would crush me if I get denied. I was thinking about taking her to a fine restaurant and proposing there with the engagement ring I bought.

Plain Black Watch I was After

I was looking through some designer watches yesterday because I was after a plain black watch to wear with my casual clothes. The reason why I wanted the watch to be so simple was because I like the colour black and I want it to compliment my clothing and not take over and be the centre of attention. There are many people who wear designer watches for this reason but I don’t like to.

designer watches

I found some that I really liked and they came in the exact style I was looking for. I found them online but the only problem I had was I didn’t want to have to wait a few days for the delivery so I decided to pop up to the watch shop I found the one I liked on yesterday. By going to the shop not only could I buy it straight away, I can also look at the watch properly and know for sure if I like plus I can walk out with it as soon as I bought it!

Spongebob Birthday

It was my sisters birthday coming up and I wanted to buy loads of decorations to make her 10th birthday extra special. I know she likes spongebob a lot so I thought I would buy her decorations that relate to spongebob. I looked around and I found some great things. I bought a giant spongebob stuffed toy, napkins, paper plates, cakes and pretty much everything I could buy that had spongebob on it.


We was going to take a lot of pictures of he birthday and I thought it would be amazing if I could get my hands on a big cut out of spongebob that she could stand next to and take pictures with. I had no idea where to start looking for a company who can provide me with this cut out so I searched online. I came across a company called Big In Ink who are the number 1 printers in birmingham. They offered me personalised cut outs. I was very pleased and I ordered one straight away. Her birthday is in a weeks time so i’ll keep you posted.

Treating My Back Injury Properly

I was recently sent to a Birmingham chiropractor because I injured my lower back. Right now you may be wondering how I managed to injure my lower back and you may also be wondering how it happened and why I went to visit a chiropractor. If you are, then please continue reading as it is what I am about to cover throughout this post.


I was shifting heavy equipment out of my room in my home in order to decorate and that is how I injured my back. The items where very heavy and I didn’t follow the correct safety techniques in order to lift heavy equipment as I result I injured my lower back. I knew that back problems are serious so I went to a walk in clinic and they did some X-rays and checks and referred me to a chiropractor. Thankfully the treatment is working and my back feels more flexible and I also feel less pain whilst moving. I am still receiving ongoing treatment to aid my recovery but so far so good.

Something Practical and New

I wanted to buy something new for my bedroom. I am into gaming, designing and drawing. As you may know these three interests would probably mean I have a really nice setup in my bedroom. If you are unsure what i mean by set up, it is basically the way my PC, Monitors, Xbox and everything else I need to continue these interests, are placed. I have a nice corner desk in my room that was made by myself. I have to monitors and I am looking to buy the 3rd! I have one monitor to play xbox on and the other monitor to use my PC and the rest of the desk to do my designing and drawing etc.


I had a little look online for some practical office equipment and most of the things I found were the common office stuff like pens etc. While I was searching for new things I saw some paper shredders. I thought this might be a good idea to buy a shredder because I could use it as a fun way to dispose of my scrap design and stuff.

It Is a Good Idea!

After a big family discussion we all finally agreed that it was a good idea. I know you are all probably thinking what was the discussion about? What was the good idea and so on, don’t worry I am about to tell you.

loft converison

We were discussing wether or not we should have a loft conversion done in our home. The main reason why we were discussion loft conversions and including on in our home is because we have a large family and we do not have enough rooms for us to live comfortably. We do not want to move out either as the kids are all settled in their schools and have made good friends her, we have too! Plus the area is just perfect. We did think about having an extension done but we also do not think that would be necessary as of yet. We decided it would be a good idea to have our loft converted because it is a part of our home that isn’t used and it can easily be a bedroom for our son so he doesn’t have to share a room.

My Surprising Idea

It was a normal start to the day. I woke and brushed my teeth, washed my face had a quick wash, ate a sausage sandwich for breakfast, drank a cup of coffee, got ready for work and headed of towards my car. At this moment in time you are probably wondering why I am talking about what Idid in the morning. If you are, do not worry it will all come clear to you soon.

promotional pen

As I got in my car I sat down and looked on my dashboard to see that there was a pen placed on top of it. I picked it up to have a look at it and I remembered it was a printed pen template I had made to decide wether or not we should use them for our company. I totally forgot about this idea and luckily the pen was there to remind me. This is when I thought, hang on a minute, the pen just reminded me of our business it will probably have the same sort of effect on others too. I took this whole experience into work with me and told them the printed pens idea and they said go through with it! I will keep you posted on how things go.

Research On Hot Tubs

I was doing some research earlier on the benefits and negatives about hot tubs. The reason why I was so interested in the positives and negatives about hot tubs was because I am very interested in purchasing one very soon. I have been coming across a lot of reviews online some more helpful than others but most of them lead me in to wanting to purchase a hot tub even more.

cheap hot tubs

Now that I was practically convinced that I should buy a hot tub I started to search for hot tubs online as I had no idea where to start looking for hot tubs dealers near me. While I was searching online I came across a companies website that sells hot tubs and it was called Sutton Spas. I had a look through the hot tubs that they had to offer and see if they had anything that I would like to buy. I found a few hot tubs that interested me so I decided to see pop into their local store near me to get a better look at it.

The Only Printing Company I Use In Birmingham

When it comes down to high quality printing and choosing the right people to do the job, there is only one printing company in Birmingham I go to. After trying out many other printing companies ,before I ordered a large amount of printing, I quickly realised the difference between each printing company. The reason why I was trying out a lot of other printing companies before I decided on which one I was going to go with for my prints, was because I only wanted the best quality prints I could get and I wanted them to be based in Birmingham too.


This is when I found Big In Ink. I found Big In Ink by searching online for printers Birmingham. Big In Ink are the number one printers in Birmingham. Why I go to visit them is because they offer me very high quality prints and they use only the best materials to print on and print with. I have been using Big In Ink for many months now and I am not disappointed with the results.

Brief Review Of Underfloor Heating

What I will be writing about today is a brief review on underfloor heating. I have had underfloor heating in my home for almost a year now so my opinions and information I will be writing today is valid. The reason why I am reviewing underfloor heating today is because it is a new heating system that a lot of people are reluctant to install in their homes. There could be many reason as to why, but I think it is mainly down to the cost of the underfloor heating to buy and install and the overall hassle of removing your old heating system and trying to install a new one.

underfloor heating mats

As far as the overall purpose of underfloor heating or heating in general, underfloor heating is superb for heating up your flooring, but that isn’t it’s main strength either. With underfloor heating you will benefit from equal heat distribution too du to the evenly spread out rods beneath your floors. Underfloor heating also has very low running costs too. As far as the negatives go, it can take a little longer to heat up your rooms and it only runs on low temperatures.

High Security Shredder I Purchased

I had recently bought a high security powerful shredder to deal with my most important information that I wanted to dispose of. The shredder I bought is very good, it can shred cards, books, cardboard and even CD’s. The shredder is very efficient at shredding and it also is very expensive too. The reason why I bought such a powerful shredder is because the information I need to dispose of is not only my personal information it is also clienteles personal information that cannot be leaked under any circumstances. This is why I had to buy this shredder.


The shredder is ideal to shred almost anything that can fit in it. It is also perfect for collecting paper for recycling. I like the shredder so much that I have been recommending it to some of my colleges and friends. There is something just so fun about using a shredder, this may sound strange but unless you own one yourself or if you have used one before you will never know how fun it is.

We are happier than ever!

We have been engaged for quite some time now and we are very happy together. Our relationships growing stronger by the day and I feel like she is the only one for me and I think she feels the same way too. We sat together yesterday reminiscing about our past and all the lovely memories we shared like the day we first met and when I proposed to her.

The day we first met was a very funny and weird one to say the least. Lets just say I didn’t quite make the first impression I was hoping for. We had a great meal at a decent restaurant then we had a game of bowling around an hour later. This is where I showed myself up. Not only did I lose the game and I was terrible at bowling and I also slipped and hit the ground, this was embarrassing for me but it made her laugh and it is a moment we won’t forget! I also remember looking for engagement rings Birmingham to try and find the perfect ring that I have for her now.

Searching for unique jewellery?

If you are looking for a new piece of jewellery you will quickly realise the large amount of jewellers you may find near you. Another thing you may find is that the jewellers near you may all be similar, offering you similar jewellery prices. This is all good, it’s not so much of a bad thing however, you might be searching through many local jewellers to find that there is nothing unique.


I was looking for Jewellers in Oxford and I had a lot of trouble trying to find unique jewellery. If this is the case with you, then I recommend you have a browse through hamlingtons.co.uk. Hamlington’s are fine jewellers who only offer the finest hand crafted jewellery all made by themselves to suit your particular style and needs. They also cover many locations across the nation. so you are sure to find a store near you. They also have many collections such as, ruby, sapphire, gold and much more.

Is It Time For a New Car?

Are you bored of your old car? Do you think it’s time to upgrade your car to a much better one? If this is the case then you might want to start looking into purchasing yourself a new car. Purchasing a new car might not be as easy as you may think. With so many car dealers trying to say they will give you the best deal it can be quite difficult to decide who to actually buy from.

for sale car

I was after a used car so I looked for used cars Lichfield. I wasn’t really sure what I was after in terms of the model of the car and specs etc. I spoke to one of their friendly advisors who asked me a few details on what I might want from my new car and what features I like from my current car. We sat down and discussed the things I like and what I would like for my next car and the general use of the car. I don’t have a family so I wasn’t really fussy on getting a certain type of car although I did want a nice one. In the end after discussing what I was after he found me a BMW 1 Series that was good looking and had everything I was looking for.


Do You Have Two Tongues

Having a second tongue is such a fantastic skill to have for both socialising with people from different nations and cultures, alongside being able to communicate across a wide range of businesspeople in various countries. A lot of us are taught language in our early years through school, but with the lack of focus that is put around it, most of this is quickly forgotten and never to be used again.

language lessons


I was brought up in a family speaking a variety of languages in the home my whole life, so naturally had an interest and picked some bits up rather quickly. But because learning in school is so poorly taught these days, students struggle to have the desire to learn a second language and progress their skills.

These skills can be helpful in both social and business environments, so it is important to learn them from an early age and develop as many tongues as you can. Learn more about languages and find a tutor near you from The Language Machine

Warming Up This Winter

It’s been a cold winter this year, and it doesn’t look to be improving any time soon with further cold weather forecast for the coming weeks, so it’s important to make sure you wrap up warm when you leave the house, but more importantly stay warm while you’re in the house!

Making sure you have a high quality central heating system installed within your home is important to make sure you stay warm and stay healthy through these cold periods.

central heating

A water tank saved my marriage

Ever since I purchased a water tank last year, my life has improved exponentially and my home life has never been so good.  Bills coming in each week and money going out daily is a problem known to all homeowners and is often a strongly argued over topic within households all over the world. With everyone trying to save money and live happy lives, water tanks can be the solution. My life with a wife and two kids can be very demanding on the pocket at times and can get me very stressed. However since I made a small investment of buying a water tank for domestic use, my water bills have reduced drastically. This means that I can finally start saving to take the family on holiday this year and do all the things that a happy family do together. Ever since the change there has been a different atmosphere within the house and arguments have become very infrequent if not at all over money problems. I can definitively say that buying a water tank has saved my marriage which was previously on the rocks and also made mine, and my families lives much happier places to live in.

During my visit in Birmingham!

So i hit up birmingham at the weekend! I wanted to go and find a decent set of businesses that had great morals and lovely looking websites !

So I’m heading in to find a driving instructor or driving school that can help me learn to drive. So i search on Google for “driving lessons birmingham” and find a company DRIVE BIRMINGHAM, recently started with a good group of instructors!

That all went well check the image!


So after this i thought about the power of how search engines like Google channel traffic straight to the doors of businesses in the world every day all day. Contributing to over £1000bn of online spending. 10% more than the predicted coal, oil fuel sector. Anyway so i headed back on there to find the magic behind the action and found an SEO Company In Birmingham called SEO Silly, who kindly spent time to talk to me how search engines work. This was very intersting and very factual so !

Why Go Out To The Shops When You Can Shop From Home

Firstly, we would like to start with a big happy new year from our blog, we have our busiest year yet ahead of us and have some big articles to come regarding jewellery, agriculture and many more topics, so stay tuned with the blog for some fantastic pieces.

In today’s article we will be looking at shopping online as appose to in store, and how the online world is affecting stores. Our example is looking into the market for jewellery UK, showcasing some manufacturers and shops in the jewellery quarter in the heart of Birmingham.

The jewellery quarter has a lot of history dating back around 250 years and is the heart of trade in the West Midlands. It is the largest concentration of jewellery based businesses in Europe, producing 40 percent of UK manufactured jewellery, so there’s plenty on offer for everyone.

Shopping online for jewellery is a bit more complex than something as simple as clothing, due to the nature of the products people feel more comfortable when purchasing inside a shop, they have quality assurances and can see the piece in person before making a final decision, not just from a photo on a website.

But that shouldn’t disjoint you as a jeweller, a lot of people look around online at pieces and will then come into store to make their purchase from something that they have seen online.

My Big Day Out

Last weekend was my birthday, and I wanted it to be really special so went all out on the day.

First off was what to wear

Always a dilemma, and it was no different this time, having to choose from a range of suits I eventually picked a quite fantastic Hugo Boss tailored suit from a shop in Birmingham. Pairing this with a 9ct gold chain it really brought out the elegance of the suit I had picked.

Then came the venue

After looking around at a host of places in Birmingham city centre as to where to host my birthday party, we finally decided on a modern contemporary bar in the jewellery quarter, who allowed us to take the whole floor at a relatively good price.

How to arrive

Arriving in style was important to me so we had a look at some limo hire companies to see what prices would be like for this. We wanted to hire a hummer limousine, and some of the prices we got were really high.

We looked on Google for limo hire Birmingham and found a great site called Your Limo Hire. They had a range of cars available, including a hummer one so we got in contact to see what was available on the day.

There is a great online reservation system available which allows you to select your date, time and vehicle and they get back to you almost straight away.

How did it go

Overall it was a fantastic birthday and I couldn’t have asked for more on the day, thanks to everyone for coming and making it so special and a day I will never forget.

A Weekend In Birmingham

I spent last weekend visiting the iconic second city of the United Kingdom, Birmingham. Hosting some fantastic heritage and history in this beautiful place, I will today be talking about what I got up to while I was over there.

Birmingham has the largest German christmas market outside of its home country in the whole of Europe, and it really is a fantastic setting at this time of year. With stalls offering a range of gifts, food and of course German beer, it really is a sight to behold.

I also took a visit to the University of Birmingham, somewhere I am thinking of studying next year when I have to begin my applications to university, deciding where to take my career path next.

Another place I visited was the Jewellery Quarter Birmingham, the heartbeat of the jewellery trade in the West Midlands. It’s a vibrant area just off the city centre that boats a vast range of jewellers, manufacturers, restaurants and bars, a museum and much more.

With the run up to christmas well and truly in full flow, and the winter weather set in, I decided to join the rest of the crowds last weekend and partake in some christmas shopping!

While I was shopping around in the quarter, I thought some jewellery would make a fantastic present for my sister, especially with her being so hard to buy for. I saw a beautiful set of 9ct gold hoop earrings in one of the jewellery shops there, and just had to buy them.

Overall, my trip to Birmingham last weekend was really special and I would recommend anyone to visit, there’s plenty to see and do, especially around christmas time. Visiting the Birmingham jewellery quarter and the christmas markets were definitely the highlights of the trip.

Try Your Hand At The Piano

Ever thought about learning to play an instrument like the piano? Firstly let’s take a look at what a piano is.

The piano is an instrument played by the use of a keyboard. Predominantly used in classical and jazz themed music for either solo play or accompanying in the background.

I first started to learn the piano when I was still in school after looking in a local music shop and being told about some offering piano lessons Birmingham I decided to give them a call and started ever since.

Having previously played a bit of keyboard at school I kind of already had an idea that I would like to try and play the piano, it’s a really great instrument to learn and you can really get an appreciation for it.
