So when I was sent a copy of Jo Middleton’s debut novel, Playgroups & Prosecco, to read and review I thought it would be the perfect way to reignite my love for books. Playgroups & Prosecco is the story of a single mum called Frankie. Frankie has… [Read More]

With half-term just gone and the Easter holidays on the way, it’s that time to think of ways to entertain and keep my seven-year old twin girls occupied and happy.

Going on a road trip is a great opportunity for families to see parts of the country – and perhaps even the world – that they otherwise never get to experience. While a similar experience can be achieved when riding by rail, trains won’t let you stop whenever you spot something interesting in between stations. You could try and kindly ask the engineer but we’ll willing to bet it won’t go over well. Along with the perks of a family road trip are a series of drawbacks.

Protecting Your Property as Best Possible

The average person works eight hours a day, five days a week. There’s a reason for this. We want to provide ourselves and our loved ones with a good quality of life.

As such, we have decided to try to live a zero waste life. We both feel it’s vitally important for our children so that when they become adults they’ll hopefully inherit a cleaner, more environmentally friendly planet than what it is currently. It’s also vital that we teach our seven old twins now about zero waste so it is passed onto future generations… [Read More]
