My Name Label Review

When the guys at My Name Label got in touch to see if I would like to try out some of their labels for clothing, shoes and belongings their timing couldn’t have been better.

I had actually been looking online to buy some labels for L’s things, but I didn’t really know what to go for, or if what I chose would be any good. I needed shoe labels, this is what had sparked the search, but I also wanted to be able to label things like his water bottle, toys, coats and clothes. Everything really.

The Benjamin Foundation’s annual Butterfly Walk on Sunday 25th June

East Anglian charity, The Benjamin Foundation, will hold its fourth annual Butterfly Walk at Sandringham Country Park on Sunday 25th June.

The Walk will follow one of Sandringham’s trails, and is around three miles long, meandering through the Country Park’s historic woodland. Quiz questions are posted along the route, providing added fun for adults and children, with prizes for the best set of answers in each age group up for grabs at the end of the Walk. Within the Country Park there are plenty of perfect picnic spots, a large children’s play area, restaurant, gift shop and a farmers’ market, so a lovely day out for the whole family.

National Stationery Week with Stabilo

As you may or may not know, next week is National Stationery Week. The guys over at Stabilo believe that stationery matters and so do I. They aren’t just making functional and practical items, it’s so much more than that.

To me stationery is a bit of an obsession. I love it. As well as needing it for everyday and mundane tasks, I need it for my own peace of mind. To find my inner calm and sanity. My stationery says so much about me and I belive that if you can have a better, more fun, prettier item then why would you not use it.
