Visiting Innocent Fruit Towers and #SowAndGrowUK Update

As you may remember, I’m currently working with drink aficionados, innocent, and veg growing champions, GIY (Grow It Yourself), to promote the Sow And Grow campaign (#SowAndGrowUK). This is a pretty cool project which is all about getting kids to grow their own fruit and veg. The idea behind it being to educate children in where […]

Doggy Dental Care: Looking After Your Dog’s Teeth

He may not take centre stage on the blog too often, but Dax is a pretty important part of the family. Since getting him as a puppy 3.5 years ago, it’s hard to think of life without him. I’m the first to admit that ‘I’m not really an animal person’, but there’s something about his stupidly long […]

7 Toddler-Friendly Things To Do On Holiday In Copenhagen

‘Posh’ Toddler-Friendly Cottage Pie Recipe For British Pie Week

Does anyone else remember when a Tuesday just used to be a Tuesday? Or when a random week during March was just that? These days though, it seems like every day, week and month has been claimed by an organisation to promote, raise awareness or celebrate something different. Whilst the majority of these things pass by […]

We’re All Going On A European City Break Holiday

Much like Sir Cliff, we enjoy a holiday. When it comes to getting away, the missus and I have been to quite a few different places in the 11 years we’ve been together. We’re not a frugal family, but we rarely splash the cash willingly – the only exception is probably holidays where we’ve spent […]
