What do you do for Hallowe’en? Are you a dress up and go crazy household or do you ignore the whole thing? We love Hallowe’en and while cynics say it’s a vastly commercial enterprise, I don’t think forking out £3 for a pumpkin and £5 for sweets to give to kids at your front door […]

I never imagined that my blog would be ‘throttled’. In fact, the term itself seems an incredibly unlikely thing doesn’t it? But it happens, and it happened to me. I checked my blog a few weeks ago because my traffic showed zero and I when I went to the home page I found it was […]

When you swap urban life for the burbs, there’s no graffiti, there are no cool art galleries in warehouses or pop up clubs. It’s privet hedges, net curtains, recycling bins and chelsea tractors. It’s a soft focus landing and sometimes feels like the Truman Show but it’s neither sinister nor eerie, it’s great if you’ve […]

I travel a lot because I like to, and more often than not, it’s with my daughter. We’ve had both good and bad journeys but I always try and engender a sense of awareness in her so that she behaves herself, we all do don’t we? As women, we are told we play many roles […]

I had an interesting chat on twitter last Friday with @liaonet which has led to me posting this video.   It’s very well put together because it tells a story, which is narrated by Stephen Fry, and it’s a short but comprehensive view of how reforestation is helping sustainability.  You can hashtag this on #weforest if […]
