Harry’s Birthday Favourites (April)

As you can see from the title it is my birthday this month! We’ve already had it as it was on 3rd and I had a lovely time given the circumstances that we find ourselves in, thanks for asking 😉. Whilst I was just going to talk about how amazing I am for this month’s blog (given it was my birthday), I decided that I could not look past what was happening in the world at the moment. I can safely say that I have never lived through anything like this - I am not sure anyone really has but...

Spring Ideas (March)

So… you wake up one morning, slightly earlier than expected due to the increased light in your room, you start to hear birds singing and it’s just one or two degrees warmer than normal. You sit up and think, what could this be? Then you remember, it’s March which means that SPRING IS HERE!! Now I don’t know about you, but I have been waiting ages for the sun to show us some love.

How to Beat the Winter Blues (February)

Or maybe because it rains A LOT? Or perhaps because it’s just bloody cold. This year in particular could be a...

Post-Christmas Bargains (January)

Post-Christmas Bargains (January) It’s that time of year again, “New Year New Me” or “Dry January” it’s just awful… We as human beings have decided over the previous decade that we’re all going to treat our bodies better, I kid you not there has been quite a rise in people going to the gym, in people eating healthier and more balanced diets hence “Veganuary” (I still can’t get over that name!). It is testament to ourselves that after years of the general population eating and drinking whatever we want that we are now trying to change, I am sure like...

May the Fourth be with you

May the fourth be with you…. Yes indeed this is a reference to the unofficial holiday celebrated by all Star Wars fans....now I am not a closet Storm Trooper or Trekkie... but I am partial to a good bit of Sci-Fi and was surprised at the supposed first use of the above phrase in print.  Do you know? (and do you care?)… Back in 1979, none other than the great Margaret Thatcher was supposedly welcomed into office by a congratulatory message saying… “May the Fourth Be with You, Maggie. Congratulations." The message was reportedly placed by the Conservative party in a London Newspaper…. now there are a...
