Whats Been Going On!

The shadows are getting longer, autumn hangs in the air and you know that before long every weekend for at least a couple of hours you’ll become a football widow again. You know that your normally kind, mild-mannered other half will once again undergo a weekly Jekyll and Hyde style transformation into a football supporting monster.  If, like me, you dread the end of summer when the league games, cup fixtures and if you’re really lucky, Champions’ League matches all... + read more
It’s finally happened. The event I’ve been dreading since I had my daughters……the unwanted head visitors, nits! Fortunately, so far only one has been infested. But how could I have missed it?
