Today the sun shone. In fact, the weather was beautiful this afternoon. Which was Sod’s Law because yesterday we’d been invited to Howletts Wild Animal Park to review their new experience, Animals of the Ice Age. And of course, yesterday was cold and wet. Not the ideal weather for spending a day outside looking for animals. However, we still had a wonderful time and we were all very impressed with the new exhibit. Animals of the Ice Age at Howlett’s…

This post was made in collaboration with Boost Capital. I had my dream job at Cancer Research UK. It gave me job satisfaction and I went to work every day with a smile on my face. Unfortunately, it wasn’t practical or economical for me to go back to work after Little Miss H was born. So I became a stay-at-home mum and I began to write a blog. At first, this blog was just a hobby. But recently, it has…

This is because our house was built in 1966 and needs to have a lot of work done on it. The ceilings need to be replastered, the house could do with being…

This is a collaborative post. Not a single person in this world is the same as the other. We are all very different human beings with our own little quirks and personalities. This is not something we should be ashamed of, but something we should revel in. And we should embrace our identity as individuals, because if we were all the same then the world would be a very boring place. Most people would agree with this statement, and yet,…
