Somerset Yurts Review: The Freedom To Explore

Nestled on a working Dairy Farm in the beautiful Quantock Hills, Somerset Yurts offers its guests the chance to unwind, relax and truly get back to nature. Children are free to explore the fields and climb the hay bales whilst mum and dad sit back and relax on the deck of their beautiful, authentic, traditional Mongolian yurt (or Gers as they’re called in Mongolia!). Owned by Emma and Mark, Somerset Yurts offers families, couples, groups and individuals a break from the hustle and bustle of every day life. Check out the short video below of our time at Somerset Yurts…. [Read More]

Raising strong, independent children

Being a parent is such an amazing gift. It really is. Raising a baby well so that they become a kind-hearted, independent, strong adult is certainly challenging, yet I like to think it’s something all parents strive for when teaching their children. This stems down to so many things. They way in which you interact with your children is teaching them how to behave. If you treat like your child with respect, listen to them and take their feelings on board so that they know their opinion is valued, this is something that they’ll hopefully go on to do when… [Read More]

Review: A Sparkly Clean Home with PoundShop.com

As someone who used to be a self-employed cleaner, I have somewhat of an interest in cleaning. I wouldn’t say I’m obsessive about cleaning, but I do like to have a clean home. As such I always make sure that I set aside one day a week to give our home a proper clean. I wish I had more time to do it, but with work and children it’s just not feasible. When Mrs Hinch arrived on the scene I think it’s fair to say that a lot of people started taking more of an interest in cleaning their homes…. [Read More]

I’m an introvert and that’s ok

When I was growing up in the 90’s I often thought that I was weird. Like many teenagers I enjoyed spending time with my friends, but that was usually when I was over their house, outdoors with them in the park or in a bowling alley. When it came to going out to a pub or club I instantly felt myself wanting to curl up into a ball and hiding in a corner where no one could see me. Almost like a tortoise retreating to the safety of its shell. Pubs and clubs just aren’t my thing. I know that… [Read More]

Review: A Unique Father’s Day Gift with Tree2mydoor.com

If you haven’t yet realised it, this Sunday is Father’s Day. Like many people I’ve headed to the local supermarkets and a few local small businesses in search of the perfect Father’s Day gift my children can give their daddy. I can’t say much more as he may well be reading this, but it’s fair to say that our twin girls are pretty excited to give their daddy the gifts they’ve helped me to choose for him. Two of those gifts, I must admit, have been rather hard to hide! They’re not your usual Father’s Day gift and that what… [Read More]

Engraving your wedding ring
