Dancewear from Dance Gear

Dancewear can sometimes look a bit boring – leotards, leggings, shorts, crop tops… They come in pink, black and lilac. The leotard might have a skirt. It might have thin straps or thicker ones. But it can all be a bit the same. Which is where Dance Gear comes in. The UK company doesn’t just stock dancewear brands like Roch Valley and Bloch, they also have their own unique Made to Order range. The range includes 80...

Help Your Kids With Growing Up by Robert Winston

I haven’t bought a parenting book since my boys were 4 and 2. They’re 16 and 13 now and they bring a whole new load of challenges with them. So I was very pleased when I was offered a copy of Help Your Kids With Growing Up to review, especially as it is written by Dr Robert Winston, who I have great admiration for, particularly his TV series, Child of Our Time. This is someone who really understands the workings of...

The Levellers at Wychwood Festival – We did it!

A few weeks ago, I realised that we wouldn’t be able to watch my favourite band in the world, the Levellers, at Wychwood Festival because my son had GCSE history at 9am the next morning. And I was gutted. We all were. But we had to make that sacrifice. And believe me when I say it was a genuine decision, not something I just decided so I could squeeze a blogpost out of it. But then, a few days before the festival, something...

Wychwood Festival 2017

It’s like stepping away from real-life into another world. And everyone needs to do that sometimes, don’t they? Held at Cheltenham Racecourse every year on the second...

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...
