Comments Off on Keeping an Eye on the Kids’ Online Activities
image

Not too long ago when we were little kids, the mere knowledge that it was finally summertime again sent us into a state of delirium as our heads filled up with excited thoughts of all the mischief we’d now be able to get up to under the sun. You tend to look forward to just being able to jump into the pool and make a proper water bomb, or head to the beach to experience summer the best way we knew how. You only need to look at the printed photographs some of us still have of...

Comments Off on What Would You Do if You Win the Lottery?
image

Because of the colossal odds that would have to be in your favour to win it, the lottery has become synonymous with the expression of taking a gamble, a real gamble where your chances of winning really aren’t in your own hands. As the saying goes however, “you can’t win the lotto if you don’t buy a ticket,” so you should definitely give it a pop, if only just to make sure you never have to live with all the “what ifs?” that come with never having at least taken a...

Comments Off on Staying True to Your Own Style and Taste
image

Certain things don’t come to light until one truly gets exposed to a rather significant sample size. We’re often so caught up in our own lives, for legitimate reasons of course, that we often don’t realise just how much influence others may have on us or how much influence a small group of people can have on the lives of all of us. I don’t mean it in a bad way at all though. All I’m talking about is style and taste. I mean at first I kind of developed the idea that most...

Comments Off on Re-Doing Your Living Room for a More Homey Feel
image

It’s naturally one of the most headache-inducing interior spaces to decorate mainly because it’s perhaps the centre-point of your home, but decorating your living room is indeed a lifelong commitment. A living room is never really totally complete because you’ll find yourself re-doing it in some way or another, more than once after you first decorate it. Whether you’re temporarily re-arranging and re-decorating for a specific function or event, or if you’re giving it...

Comments Off on THE IMPORTANCE OF POWER OF ATTORNEY FOR A FAMILY
1

Image Source There are good number of reasons why a family might like to make arrangements for power of attorney. Some of these could be purely temporary but, in other cases, they may be more long-lasting or permanent arrangements. At its simplest, power of attorney allows a family member (or another appointed individual for that matter) take decisions on your behalf. The power is set out in a document which hands over the legal authority to make decisions on a wide range of...

Comments Off on How to Commemorate Your Daughters 21st
21

The 21st birthday is a big one, which I don’t need to remind anyone reading this, as they will remember theirs. I spent mine at my own party hungover, because my uncle had force-fed me flagons of cider the night before. Your 18th is when everyone tells you your now an adult and many of the shackles of youth are lifted from you, however I guarantee it’s not until 21 that you start to believe people when they tell you you’re an adult (for man-babies like my brother, it can...

Comments Off on Essay on Family Traditions
family-tradition

One of the most disturbing observations repeatedly vocalised by people who fall into the grandparents’ age group is that family traditions appear to be dying a slow and painful death. The elderly fondly talk about the good old days, when many of the socio-economic problems faced could be solved through the application of a few familiar, tried-sand-tested solutions. They definitely have a point and with age comes the wisdom of a very rich mix of proper life experience. However,...
