With stories of childhood obesity never far from the headlines, it’s easy to believe that each generation of children is lazier than the last. But a new survey of 6 – 11 year olds suggests that British children believe they’re wrapped in cotton wool by their parents and would like more freedom to play outside. So that’s where the Sudocrem Play More Campaign wants to help.
It’s no secret that Denmark is famous for being the happiest nation on earth. Now hygge-mania is sweeping the UK with thirteen books on the subject hitting the best seller chart in 2016. But can hygge, the untranslatable Danish concept of cosiness and quality time together, still be applied when you have a new baby in the house?

I don’t know what got me thinking about it, but the last days or so I’ve really been thinking about how much I have changed since becoming a mum. Obviously parenthood is life changing, I didn’t expect it not to be. Now three years in there are days I think I’ve got this parenting thing sorted, mostly I don’t, but that’s life.
I have literally lost track of how many times I have said ‘I just push through it’ this week. Don’t worry, I’ll push through it. It’s OK, I can push through it. Well you know, you just push through it. Again, and again and again.

The guys over at Rattan Direct have recently put together a survey trying to find out what do parents do to unwind around the home.
I’ve taken it and it literally took about two minutes and you don’t have to give any personal details. Not even your email address.
I would be interested to see the results when they come in. They are asking questions about how and where in the house busy parents unwind. For me it’s my sitting room with a glass of wine. Although wine wasn’t an option during the survey, surely I’m not the only one.
