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]

Creating a pet friendly garden

Pets are such a big part of our lives. When I was a child we had many different pets at one time or another. My favourite was our pet cat, Jessie. She was a long haired black cat that I absolutely adored. I have one very fond memory her. I was desperate for her to stay in my bedroom at night time so I could cuddle her so I snuck her into my bed when I went to my room and placed her on top of my duvet. My parents didn’t know this and I daren’t not tell them as… [Read More]

We’ve recently received an apple tree and grape… [Read More]

ADVERT: WALKERS REUNITES WITH SPICE GIRLS TO CROWN THEIR ‘BEST EVER FAN’

THIS COMPETITION IS NOW CLOSED! Growing up in the 90s was pretty epic. We could play outdoors until it got dark, sing song lyrics from the back of the tape cassette insert, struggle to keep out tamagotchis alive and we had the Spice Girls. I loved the Spice Girls! My sister and I would spend so much time listening to them and singing along to their songs. I was, and still am, a huge Sporty Spice fan. My sister was a Baby Spice fan. My favourite Spice Girls song is Wannabe and when my sister and I went to their… [Read More]
