Your Family or Your Pet?! Who will you choose when it comes to your Will?!

Wills in Number infographic

Writing a will is something I’ve often thought about doing. Although if I’m honest it’s not something I’ve done yet. Somehow time seems to just run away with itself! Writing wills is certainly important, but it can also be pretty humorous at times too. This funny infographic was put together by some clever wills and probate lawyer London and it certainly makes for some interesting reading!

Have you thought about writing a will?

According to the Guardian website, two thirds of parents have not made a will.  Not too many of us like thinking or talking about death, so this is hardly that surprisingly.  Having said that, writing a will is really a top priority for those of us with children. We don’t want our loved ones to have to deal with a financial headache and any complications on top of losing a loved one when our time’s up.  So what’s stopping us? “It’s expensive” According to this interactive page from legal firm FBC Manby Bowdler the cost of writing a will, is less than people expect.  Using a solicitor to write a will, usually costs no more than… [Read More]

The main thing I do remember about my childhood is that it was a happy one for the majority. I grew up in a nice area, in a lovely house with a beautiful garden.

We had an apple tree in the back garden which my sister and I would climb every summer. A large garage… [Read More]

Garden Designs all Children will Love

Rather than hopping about on the furniture or sitting goggle-eyed in front of the TV, having a garden that children want to go out and play in is immensely rewarding – for them as well as for the parents. Whether you invest in a swing set and a trampoline or create a natural haven of insects and plants, your children will love the opportunity to let off steam in a safe environment that’s all their own; even better, all the exercise… [Read More]
