There’s no place like Noz – Nozstock 2019

There’s no place like Noz – Nozstock 2019

When I first went to Nozstock (6 years ago) it was as a reviewer with a young child. Nozstock has now become a regular mark on the calendar. It generally falls on the weekend after they finish school so it feels like the start to the Summer holidays. What has changed over the years, apart from plenty on site (remember the old tractors?) is my relationship with not just with the farm but the family and crew behind it. It…

Treating myself – a swimming costume review for UK swimwear

Treating myself – a swimming costume review for UK swimwear

I have had my swimming costume for years and my bikinis for even longer. It’s just not a priority for me, like most of my wardrobe my costumes date back to BK (before kids).

We’ve tried filling in holes with bricks, filling in with mud and putting new grass seed down but nothing works. The front garden she never touches but the back garden is destroyed. We have looked at several different options. The replanting option we have…

Oscar and Hooch – Review of collar and lead

Oscar and Hooch – Review of collar and lead

What dog doesn’t like going for walkies? Penny (Penny Lane named as Dylan is obsessed with the Beatles) certainly loves them. In fact she bounces around like a kangaroo and races to the front door the moment you said “walk…(runs)… ies” We have tried several collars and leads for Penny but she does love to roll in mud and go swimming in ponds, so the collars never seem to last long.  I wanted something I could throw in the washing…
