My palm reading experience with PalmistryHD

January 23, 2018 admin 0

I first had my palm read at 18 and it fascinated me. I went with a couple of the girls from work and we had such a giggle. I was told that I would “be a nurse but not a normal one” and that I would “work in education with lots of computers to one side”. At the time I was planning on being a psychologist so this all sounded like utter rubbish to me, […]

Never to late to learn to skate

January 22, 2018 admin 0

One of my favourite reality programmes is Dancing on Ice. I love the costumes, the music, and of course Phil and Holly. But what I think I like the most is that it requires a skill and one that they then perform live in front of an audience. I think what I like about this is that there is less opportunity for the production team to edit the footage and present us with a particular […]

Using Social Media Screening to Optimize Recruitment Processe

January 18, 2018 admin 0

Social Media is becoming a significant tool for people to use to get to know each other. This also applies to the corporate structure where recruiters are now choosing to look at social media to determine whether or not a candidate is good enough for the job. Recruitment processes are changing with the times, and are becoming more dependent on technology and the online world, rather than previously where the focus was only on physical […]

Eco Friendly Toys: Do They Really Live Up To Their Name?

January 18, 2018 admin 0

There is a pushback that invariably occurs when talking about eco friendly products – does the use of those products really contribute to a cleaner, safer environment? Or does the waste they create manifest in a different form? Well, it all depends on what sort of eco-friendly toys you’re buying. The fact is that children’s toys are most often created from plastic, and given the short life cycle of these toys, this is obviously just […]

Good bubble, a bath time review

January 15, 2018 admin 0

Bath time is an important part of the bedtime routine,  it helps to calm and soothe a child before going to bed……… ha believe that you will believe anything. Bath time is a time to splash proof the floor, walls and ceiling as you try and convince your child that your bath is not an Olympic size pool and “no you don’t want to see how big the waves are”. It is also a time […]

How to encourage your children to talk about their day

January 8, 2018 admin 11

Sometimes getting children to talk about their day can seem impossible. When I pick the boys up from school I always ask them how their day was and most times I get the same rotation of responses I can’t remember It was fine Good thanks They literally walked out of the building minutes earlier yet they have nothing to tell me about their day. Don’t get me wrong, some days they are full of tales […]

The gift of alcohol this Christmas

December 19, 2017 admin 0

When buying gifts for people I tend to go for personalised gifts but when this isn’t possible, or I’m simply not organised enough to prepare one in advance then I tend to opt for the gift of alcohol. Now obviously everyone doesn’t drink  but the majority of people in my life do enjoy the odd tipple so alcoholic gifts have saved the day on a few occasions so I thought I would put together a […]

Christmas gift ideas for children

December 4, 2017 admin 0

This year I have decided to do a children’s gift guide instead of a girls and then a boys because quite frankly, it really annoys me when toys are aimed primarily at one gender than another and my boys are made to feel they shouldn’t choose a particular toy, book or hobby. So I have compiled a list of some of the things my boys will be receiving this year. Smiggle back pack Christmas is […]

Do your children want wheels for Christmas too?

November 30, 2017 admin 0

Has your child asked for wheels this Christmas? So far every Christmas at least one of the boys has asked for an item with wheels, if not both of them. We have had requests for scooters, bikes, roller blades and even a skateboard and just when I though we had every possible option already covered and filling up the garage this year we have had a request for shoes with wheels in them. You know, […]
