‘Food, food, glorious food! What is there more handsome, gulped, swallowed or chewed?’ So the song asks. Stop sniggering at the back. It’s you isn’t it? It’s always you with the smutty mind. See me after class. Anyway, as I was about to say. Food eh? Lovely stuff. Food isn’t always merely something to shovel [...]

On Crumbs, two sisters – Claire and Lucy – blog about feeding their family. They have different approaches: Claire is the ‘Queen of Cobble’. She pulls things together from locally sourced ingredients and whatever she can find in her cupboard. Lucy is all organisation, with meal plans, but there is the occasional off-piste dinner. [...]
You may have noticed a pink tinge to most magazines this month with boobs being the talk of the town more than ever. That’s because it’s Breast Cancer Awareness Month (although I’m sure you already knew that). Breast Cancer is a serious issue – over 46,000 women and around 300 men are diagnosed with [...]

I’m going to be predictable and start by telling you that I’ve just dropped my children off at school for their first day of the new school year. Although they are not new starters, they still have new beginnings – a new teacher, a new playground, a new school in GG’s case, and so [...]

Back to school needn’t mean back to the soul-destroying monotony of doling out cheese sandwiches each day, but nor should providing a healthy and innovative lunch box for your kids take over your life. Anything that requires overnight soaking or first thing cooking is clearly unsustainable… Tasha from www.wahm-bam.org recently ran a competition to win [...]
