How To Embrace The Autumn Equinox

Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been reading with interest in the news the effect the coming of Autumn has on some of us. For me it’s always been a bit of a hard time; I’m such a sun hunter that the prospect of six months of darkness, drizzle and shivering leaves me feeling […]…

Summer Good Times

The Summer Conclusion

The worst thing about summer for me is that it has to come to an end. I was thinking about this yesterday as I dropped the children off at school and turned the A/C up to warm for the first time this year – I already miss the days of driving around with our windows […]…


MTT Travel: The Pig on the Beach, Studland, Dorset

A Shrek Adventure – WIN A Family Ticket

Last Friday I headed on down to South Bank with my two monkeys for a day of fun culminating in DreamWork’s Shrek’s Adventure. The interactive Shrek’s Adventure is based inside London’s County Hall, right next door to The London Dungeon. Shrek is one of the most popular films in our house and we couldn’t wait […]…
