When my mum lived with us, she would sometimes accidentally open the front door letting one or two of the dogs escape. Because she had dementia, she couldn’t remember to shut the middle door before opening the front door so inevitably they would escape and run, luckily not the main road way but back towards the end of our close.  Now anyone will tell you if you...

Now the weather is becoming warmer, Andy has been busy cleaning the garden ready for us to start sitting out there during the day. We still have a lovely birdhouse (made by Kelly’s son Terry) to put up, and have removed the original mason bee hotel that we had. The main reason for removing it was the fact that no bees ever used it and for some reason it started...

Having new puppy in the house, a first in 12 years for us, the other dogs have on the whole been incredibly good about it apart from Daddy Bo and Ali who have been slightly stressed out with the whole thing. For a few weeks we tried placing Bach Flower Rescue Remedy for Pets in their drinking water (just 2 drops) but it didn’t make much difference at all and...

Kitchen accessories are my thing. I’m like a kid in a candy shop whenever I see something for the kitchen that looks unique or does something different, so I was in my element when I had a hunt around Red Candy for a few eclectic pieces to give a bit of dimension to things. When we had our new kitchen put in, we decided to go with a DJ theme for the accessories...

As I’m on a diet I can’t indulge over the Easter break with glorious toasted hot cross buns, and chocolate easter eggs so instead of buying those I’ve got another idea for an Easter present for my other half Andy. It’s unique, it’s personal and it gives him the chance to have something nice from me that he can indulge in without me craving after it. I didn’t...

Dentistry has changed an awful lot since I was a kid. When I was 13, my dentist told my mum I needed braces which 20 years ago was not the done thing.  Other children would bully you and call you names, commenting daily about your “train tracks” or taking the mickey out of your “metal mouth”  so when the day came for me to have the braces...

Through a series of comic adventures with Tip, Oh comes to understand that being different and...

Our dogs can never get enough treats and toys, so getting a Barkbeats Box this month was a no brainer. Like the Pawsome Box, Barkbeats charge you a monthly fee for a fabulous box of goodies tailored to your fur babies needs. For £14.90 for 1 box, it contains at least double that in retail value of goodies and what a fab selection you get! We were lucky enough in...

OK so I did my week on the New You Plan. How did it go? The plan I followed was: 1 shake in the morning 1 soup for lunch 1 meal in the evening 1 bar treat or bag of chips It’s a VLCD (very low calorie diet) and should only be done under doctors supervision. I asked my doctor if I could try it and he said as it was just a week then it was fine but he wouldn’t recommend...

Andy loves a good beer. At Christmas I treated him to a Beer Tree which gave him something to look forward to each evening when he opened the day with his evening meal. It was quite an eye opener for him too as he found quite a few independent breweries that he had not known existed which have now become firm favourites, so when he was offered the chance to try Honest...
