3 Things You Didn’t Know You Could Do online

From booking a family holiday, to doing your weekly food shop, to updating your Facebook status, there are a number of reasons why you might use the internet. The world wide web is a pretty big place, and it’s more than likely there are a plethora of activities you can do on it that you’re not even aware of. Keep reading to discover corners of the web you might not have visited yet.
 
1. Take out a personal loan
When it comes to managing your money, the internet can come in very handy. Between looking up your current account balance, to transferring funds to other people, to paying bills, online banking is a tool that many of us use on a regular basis. But, did you know it’s possible to borrow money online too? Whether you’re keen to buy a new car or you want to plan the wedding of your dreams, you can apply for a personal loan from the comfort of your own home at the click of a button, cutting out the need to visit a bank in person. Applying for a loan online is straightforward, and you may be able to access the money quicker than you think. For example, personal loan provider chillmoney.ie can approve applications within minutes, with the funds being in your account the next working day.

2. Order prescription medicines
Let’s be honest – arranging to see your doctor can be difficult. Whether you simply don’t have enough time or you’re struggling to book an appointment, did you know you could save yourself the hassle and order your medicines via the internet instead? There are a number of trusted and reputable pharmacies online that offer a wide range of treatments, meaning you don’t necessarily need to see your GP for a prescription.
 
Usually, you’ll be required to complete an online consultation first and, once it’s been approved, you should receive your requested treatment, eliminating the need for you to schedule an appointment with your doctor.
 
3. Design something and have it printed in 3D
If you’ve always assumed that 3D printing is a futuristic technology only accessible to scientists in laboratories, you can think again. It’s now available to you online. This innovative manufacturing process allows you to take a digital file of just about anything you want and turn it into a three-dimensional solid object. Using a combination of different gadgets, it’s achieved by using additive processes – the addition of multiple thinly sliced, horizontal layers of material until the desired object is created.

Sounds complicatedly cool, right? Well now you can design your own masterpiece via the web and have it posted straight to you. So whether you’re after a totally unique gift or you’re just curious to see how your design turns out, 3D printing is a bandwagon you can jump on without leaving your computer.


There’s no denying that the internet is an extremely useful resource, and although you may reckon you’ve explored all corners of the world wide web, there’s so much more to it than you think.

Yesterday we ventured off to the Carlow/Wicklow border, a short 35 minute drive from Kilkenny to the beautiful Rathwood Home and Garden World. We had been invited to Rathwood to experience their Cinderella Tea Party.

Rathwood have being hosting children's events for many years and there's an adventure for children of all ages and adults alike. The popular Rathwood events are filled with fun and entertainment for all the family to enjoy all year round, with the seasonal holiday events being very poplular on board the Rathwood Express Train. Experience the magic of Christmas, the spooky fun of Halloween (we did this last year, both kids loved picking their own pumpkin and carving it afterwards), or"egg"citing Easter adventure (next on our list, who doesn't love an Easter egg hunt). In the summer period they host a Teddy Bear's Picnic and I think it's something that needs to be added to the bucket list of "things to do" this coming summer. What child wouldn't love to join Goldilocks and the three bears for a day.

The DIY Garden

It’s spring, this means unpredictable weather mixed in with a little bit of warmth, reminding us that summer is not too far away.  Having a decent sheltered seating area with a nice patio warmer, doesn’t have to be as expensive as it sounds.  You can create your own space without spending a fortune.  The most simple of these is to create a canopy from tent material.  You can erect a pretty simple timber structure to create a pagoda and then fix tent or waterproof material to give you protection in the rain.  Head out to your reclamation yard to find some really rustic timber framing and then purchase a small log burner or fire pit.  You can sit in your garden regardless of the weather and keep yourself warm and dry.
