Rockin’ Baby Sling!

I love baby wearing and carried Florence in a variety of slings from the day after she was born. Her very first outing was to the shops in a Close baby carrier which looks a bit like a wrap around and is soft material. I loved it although it only really took her to about a year old. It would be much younger if you have a heavy child. I actually have found quite a few slings that are brilliant over […]

The Grand National is racing in the extreme

by  Paolo Camera  In January 2015 two US climbers became the first to scale the world’s toughest mountain. They free-climbed the tortuous Dawn Wall of El Capitan in Yosemite National Park; 900 metres of sheer granite rock rising almost vertically into the sky. As extreme sports go, free climbing is quite clearly up there. Adventure seekers are prepared to travel the world to take part in some of the most daring past times imaginable. Hop on a flight to Malaysia to take part […]

Learning To Drive With 5 Day!

Last week I wrote a post about the fact I was about to embark upon a 5 day intensive driving course with 5day.co.uk. I had lots of reasons, none of them very solid, as to why it took me to the age of 35 to take the plunge into the driving pool but the time suddenly became right for me and I took the bull by the horn and went for it! Learning to drive in 5 days is a […]

Learning To Drive!

This half term I am doing something that I have wanted to do for a very long time but have been too lazy, too skint or too scared to do until now… I’m still scared but a few weeks ago the impetus took me and I booked an intensive driving course to learn, finally at the age of 35, how to drive. I didn’t do it when I was seventeen because I didn’t have any money and then when my […]

Why To Go From The Treadmill to The Football Pitch To Lose Weight

                                               by  jamesboyes  It is estimated that Brits waste £37 million annually on gym memberships they barely use. We’ve all done it, binged over Christmas and promised ourselves that come January 1st we are going to turn over a new leaf. And, often, we do…if only until January 2nd. The gym membership is often the most costly, and unneeded, component of this short-lived […]

Some offbeat present ideas for the males

My husband’s birthday is right around the corner and whenever I ask him what he wants, he says he really doesn’t want or need anything. He also says that if he did, he’d simply go out and get it himself, so not to bother. Does this sound familiar from the man in your life? But at the same time, if you literally followed his advice to the letter and simply wrote him a card, there’d probably be a bit of […]

Love On The High Street – Wilko!

I love a bit of Wilko shopping and could spend hours browsing for they really do seem to sell just about everything! Things I regularly buy are craft packs because they’re so inexpensive but very good quality, cake and baking equipment and birthday cards and wrapping because they’re always gorgeous and cost peanuts! I also go there for any kind of special occasion as I’m always sure to find what I’m looking for! Valentine’s Day is no exception and I have […]
