Gravity Force St Albans Review – heaven or hell?

So as you know I don’t do many reviews, but when my kids heard I’d been asked to review gravity force in the summer, they kind of forced me to go!  Here is Curly Headed Boy’s reaction: So here are the things I was worried about and what I thought about it all …. Is […]

Big Decisions, Crufts and Ruff Guides!

Big Decisions, Crufts and Ruff Guides!

Irony of Making Decisions It’s one of those funny things isn’t it – make a big decision and then irony of ironies, something challenges it. A few weeks ago I was so up to my eyeballs that I turned off all notifications on Facebook groups.  Every now and again I check them all at the […]

Sticks and magic

Sticks and magic

It’s been tough, at times over the past few months.  I’ve been so busy that I was surprised and really chuffed to be asked to remain as an ambassador for the Forestry Commission (which means I get a membership to Wendover woods). They sent us a lovely pack with a Stick Man book and a […]

Back to the moon for good

At the end of the last half-term we took a very excited Curly Headed Boy (nearly 8) and Little Dimples (3.5) to the National Space Centre in Leicester for the first time for the launch of ‘Back to the moon for good’. Honestly I had absolutely no idea what on earth the launch was about! […]

Feather Bowers at Just So

Life’s still hard with the recession and we all need some fun and adventure in our lives, so for this month’s Lifestyle feature over on Radio Verulam with the lovely Danny smith on his Drivetime show, I talked about festivals and camping. I first decided to got to a festival when Little Dimples was 18months […]

Review of Celtic Harmony Beltane Festival

Acrobatics from a tree

At the beginning of May we went off to Celtic Harmony in Hertford for their Beltane Festival. I’m very interested in the times of the year and the month, how they affect us, and how it can be helpful to be more aware of them. Someone once said I have a witchy vibe, in a […]

How to use a blogger in your business

Blogs

I think that bloggers are the perfect match for small to medium sized businesses to help them get their names out into the world.  The big brands are already using us.  But there is a lot to be said for focussing on smaller, niche or local businesses instead.  So here are my tips on how […]
