The Jubilee is over and I am tempted to say, 'thank the Lord'. Don't get me wrong, the extended break was great fun (Scotland for the golf was epic by the way) and it was great to spend some quality time with the family etc but the three day week that followed was painfully busy.

Now I know we are meant to talk about ways to save money on this blog and not promote irresponsible spending but I reckon we have to allow ourselves the freedom to have a bit of fun every now and again. After all, with all the savings we've made so far this year, we have to do something with our cash and what better way to spend it than to have the odd cheeky flutter?

Having only been around for just over 20 years, it might seem strange initially to nominate such a young company for the title of Brand of the Week. However, the impact that Paddy Power has had in that relatively short time merits their place in our illustrious list.

I know it's about to snow and I know the recent hot weather is nothing more than a blip but summer's just round the corner and that means a new set of sporting events are imminent - and if you, like me, are excited by that then read on!
When I used to play cricket the early season always presented mixed
emotions; delighted the season was about to start but upset by the fact
you had to wear two jumpers and that your hands experienced a pain men
can only presume comes close to child birth when you didn't time a catch
quite right. One on the end of the fingers in May is man pain. My
cricket playing days are few and far between now but, if I still played,
I would be looking for some good deals for new spikes, whites, bats and pads. Doing some research it appears these guys look to be offering some good free delivery at the very least.

Stuff We Like
By The Man About Town - A single man in London who likes to spend but who likes to save even more!
Like a lot of guys I like lists, I find things like Top Fives amusing. It could be the top five women in the world you would most like to date, the top five movies to watch or even Desert Island Discs, which is similar to a top five. Why we guys do this I do not know. Maybe it's because we have nothing else to talk about, being so one dimensional! Either way, it happens and recently my mates and I have started a new top five - "Things in your life you couldn't do without losing."
Now obviously this doesn't mean parents, siblings, girlfriends etc but,
instead, is more focused on things in the home. My current top five:
Dishwasher (I couldn't wash up)
Washing machine (I couldn't go to the launderette)
TV (could I live without Sky Sports?)
iPhone (ok, not a home item but still…)
Broadband (how could I work from home?!)
