Wychwood Festival announces its family line-up

Regular readers will know that I LOVE the Wychwood Festival at Cheltenham Racecourse. It’s a true family festival and we will be going for a fourth time this year with the whole family – from my 2 year old nephew to my 72 year old dad. So what makes it so family-friendly? Well, it’s not just about the music, although the music is great (don’t get me started on the fact that I can’t watch the Levellers...

Brightening up our house with Uncommon Goods

We’ve been in our house over three years now (yes, I know, how did that happen?) and I love it. I love the fact that we’ve got so much space and everyone has their own rooms. There are some parts of the house, particularly the kitchen and downstairs toilet that are AMAZING. There are other parts, namely the ensuite and the separate upstairs toilet, that are flipping awful and totally stuck in the 1980s. Then there’s...

Nike ladies’ trainers from Millet Sports

When I upped my running game from jogger to runner way back in the autumn of 2010, I was advised that the Mizuno Wave Inspire was the best trainer for my running style. And I’ve been wearing them ever since. I’m now on my fourth pair. I’ve signed up for the Cheltenham half marathon again in the autumn and I was at the point of wondering whether I needed to buy a new pair of trainers before then. So I was very pleased...

Review of Heelys from Skates

I hadn’t realised, being a 43 year old woman, that Heelys, the wheeled trainers, are still very popular among kids of primary school age. A lot of my daughter’s friends have them and she asked for a pair for Christmas. Right after I’d finished the Christmas shopping. So we were very pleased when Skates, the UK’s first Heelys specialist, asked us if we’d like to try a pair out just in time for spring....

Thank goodness for spaghetti bolognese

When I tell you that spaghetti bolognese is, and always has been, my favourite food, you probably won’t believe me. You probably think I’m just saying it because I’ve been asked to write about it on my blog. But believe me, I’m telling the truth. I have loved spaghetti bolognese for literally my entire life. I still eat it twice a week most weeks and I never get bored of it. There was a tough time when I turned...

Driving for 5-10 year olds with Young Driver and Firefly

Last year, I reviewed Young Driver for 11-17 year olds, and my two boys were lucky enough to have a driving lesson. My daughter, who is 10, wasn’t old enough to try – and was a bit disgruntled! So she was very happy when Young Driver launched driving lessons especially for 5-10 year olds in a unique Firefly vehicle – and she got to have her own driving lesson. Lessons in the only electric car designed specifically...
