Annette's websites of the week – Around Christmas time I always buy a Radio Times magazine to check the television listings. This way I can look forward to Christmas films and TV specials which make for extra special festive entertainment.

Radio-Times-2011-ChristmasIn addition to the magazine I’ve also been using the Radio Times website, which is very convenient when the magazine isn’t to hand. Featuring TV listings, recommendations and entertainment news it’s the perfect place to find out what’s on the box, if there wasn’t a better expression.

Seeing as Christmas is getting so closer I’m sure the ‘Christmas’ section will be a huge hit. Here you can find out about those TV Christmas specials- I can’t wait for Downtown Abbey but I know Doctor Who is a big one for many- look at exclusive photo gallery specials and watch behind the scenes footage from your favourite shows including Strictly Come Dancing, which sees its series finale this weekend.

Visit The Radio Times online – here. – After watching SuperScrimpers I wanted to investigate how supermarket comparison sites worked and if they prove to be successful when purchasing food which is often priced according to season, weight and brand.

Working in conjunction with leading supermarkets including Asda, Sainsbury’s, Tesco and Waitrose the site has good credentials. What I like most is that the site is designed to help you save money, there is not false motive.

It’s important to use the tool featured such as Saving Centre to view offers and the Basket tool to see you’re shopping bill total. Additionally, and most importantly, you can see how much your shopping would be if you’d have shopped at another supermarket.

Best of all if another supermarket is cheaper you can simply transfer you’re shopping to the most cost effective retailer in one click without having to redo your shopping.

Overall the site offers a savvy way to shop without having to sacrifice the product which they want to buy. Definitely worth checking out- even to see the offers which supermarkets are currently offering to customers online.

Douglas MacMillan– This weekend local charity Douglas McMillan is holding a Christmas Sing-a-longa at Trentham Gardens.

christmas sing a longThe open air concert featuring local choirs, Audley Male Voice Choir and Keele Bach Choir, along a local brass brand, is set to be a brilliant event which will really set the mood for festive fun in the lead up to Christmas.

I can honestly say I don’t think that you’ll find a better or more worthwhile carol concert this year and if today’s wintery scatters of snow continue the garden will look beautifully picturesque for the event. Tickets are only £2.50 making it’s a day out which the whole family can enjoy- buy tickets here
