Valentine's Day

Thoughts on Valentine’s Day

  We don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day here. Well we do, but not on the 14th February. It’s not so much a rejection of the commercialisation around the day (and how unromantic I find doing the same thing as every other couple) but those things…

Being Kind To Yourself in January

  How’s your January shaping up? I’m pretty thankful January is nearly over as we are starting to feel a bit like wading through treacle here. The kids never really got over their pre-Christmas tiredness and often refuse to get up because “it’s the middle…

February Half Term

Half Term Trip Away to Yorkshire

We managed to get away to for a little holiday last week. We don’t go away much but when half-term meets your big birthday (4-0 eeeeeek) then it would be rude not to? I quite fancied cosying up with the family, a lovely bath…
