Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Need

So you know I love buying Christmas gifts for people, sometimes in can be tough to find the right thing though.

As I mentioned earlier, I love the idea of giving something that someone wants, something they need and then a little something to eat or drink. It keeps the gift giving under control and means the recipient gets a lovely mix of things.

I’ve already covered, eat and drink ideas for you, and compiled a gorgeous list of little luxuries people will really want, today is my final gift guide all about things people need. Continue reading Christmas Gift Guide 2016 – Need

Feeling Calm #43

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

I’m feeling strangely up beat at the moment. Strange because I haven’t for a while and strange because I’m also really busy and really rather stressed out. Long may it continue, the up beat-ness, not the stress. Here are my rather fabulous top ten moments from the last 7 days.

Family Games Night This Christmas

Table-top games sales set to soar this Christmas

Research reveals parents are planning to spend the festive season – and beyond – sitting down and enjoying some good old family fun with their children. The market for table-top games is booming as ‘quality time’ becomes more precious than ever before. This may not a surprise to many of you, as I know you love playing a board game with your kids as much as I do.

Feeling Calm #42

For my birthday I was given a great new book ‘Calm’ and a journal from my friends. To help me find some calm in my life and to de-stress a little. I have been writing in my journal everyday and on Wednesday’s I go through the daily highlights I’ve written down and pick out my 10 favourites. 

Better late than never here’s this week’s calm post. My 11 hour contract has morphed into 30+ hours the last couple of weeks and will probably stay around that level up until Christmas, the extra money is great but obviously it’s taking a toll. We also had a funeral to attend this week and I had a really bad migraine. It’s not all bad though, so here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days.

How we use Heinz Soup

Of course I use Heinz soups as soup. A meal in their own right. A quick meal at that. But it’s not all you can do with them. With the weather turning cold and the nights being oh so dark, oh so early, here are a couple of my favourite winter soup uses.
