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 […]

What’s the point to an after school club – I get it at last!

Tap shoes

After school clubs – we often worry about them. Have we chosen the right one?  Too few?  Too many?  Do kids really need them? If they aren’t going to become ‘good at it’ do they really need to do one? Do we need to supplement what they learn at school, with more stuff to learn […]

Can a Samsung SSD be installed by a 7 year old boy?

New Cousin

  The people at Samsung asked me if I would like to install an SSD (Solid State Hard Drive) into my MacBook Pro to show how easy it is.  With my schedule being tight I asked Curly Headed Boy if he fancied it instead (as the Big Hairy Northern One was jumping up and down […]

Can a book festival really be fun? Does it encourage kids to read?

A scary monster!

Is a book festival fun? I was worried. My kids are used to going to festivals.  So turning up at a ‘book festival’ were they going to be severely disappointed? Our first stop was to Beast Quest.  Very quickly my worries were calmed.  A crazy magician guy introduced the concept (I had no idea what […]

How to go on holidays with more than two children and not pay a fortune

Omaha Beach in Normandy

No one warns people when they have more than two children that suddenly there will be huge problems with holidays.

It’s amazing who you can run into on Twitter

Three Days Film

I’m a fan of twitter and Facebook, I’ve even ventured quietly onto Google+ recently. Maybe because I’m nosey? Or because I love to chat? Or because when you are a little ‘different’, it’s an easy way to meet other people who are a little ‘different’? The way I do it is I auto-follow and then […]

Getting unusual jewellery doesn’t have to cost a fortune.

Charity Shop Finds

So you’d like to buy your wife/partner/girlfriend some jewellery, but don’t know how to do it without bankrupting yourself? I love jewellery, but I love saving money too.  This can make it difficult if you want ‘original’ jewellery, because it can make us tempted by the likes of Pandora or Tiffany, but then we are […]

Do we really need a separate Camera from our phone camera?

Samsung Galaxy Camera

  We have a big first here ladies and gents. A few weeks ago I was contacted by Samsung to see if I would like to go and review the Samsung Galaxy camera in Berlin with about 50 other bloggers.  Now I’m having a bit of a rest at the moment, plus Little Dimples isn’t […]

Adventure comes in surprising places

Toddler in den

  Brrrrrrrrrrr! It was freezing (0 degrees!), but the kids didn’t seem to notice at all. I was wishing I’d put my thermals on, and was eternally grateful for choosing woolly socks and snow boots over wellies. But the cheerful ‘Ooooh Mummy look at this’ coming from one direction versus ‘No Mummy come look at […]
