The average commute to work UK is an hour a day, and one in seven commuters say they spend two hours or more each day travelling to and from work. I count myself lucky that >>

Why Busy Mums Need Alexa In Their Lives

  • January 8, 2018

We have a new addition to the family! For Christmas, I bought the husband an Amazon Echo Dot, and since then we’ve been firing all sorts of questions at Alexa.
