Canvas Champ review and Giveaway

Canvas Champ review and Giveaway

We spend so much time with cameras to hand now. It’s so easy to take a picture and store them away. My parents have shelves and shelves of photo albums but I maybe have one knocking about. When I was recently contacted by a brand called canvas champ and asked if I would be interested in receiving a free 12×8 personalised canvas I thought it was a great opportunity to get a picture actually printed for a change. The first…

Trekker BBQ – review and giveaway

Trekker BBQ – review and giveaway

I love a BBQ, we all do. Given the choice the children (and Penny the dog) would have bbq every day. Any excuse to be outside.

We are lucky to live in Herefordshire and it does not surprise me that a festival in the Shires has grown from a family party 20 years ago to a large successful festival. I last came with Dylan to Nozstock in 2014. Working at other…

Mud and Bloom review – Vases and seeds

Mud and Bloom review – Vases and seeds

I have recently discovered via Twitter the wonderful Mud and bloom. Having two very keen gardeners and slightly feral children anything that encourages and keeps them busy outside is a winner to me. Mud and bloom works by sending you a new box each month. The boxes are for children aged between 3-8 although my son at age 9 loved it too so I don’t think it has to stop at 8. Each box will be delivered through your letter box….
