Comments Off on How To Help Children Cope With The Death Of A Loved One

Comments Off on A Review of the Welsh Mountain Zoo in Colwyn Bay, North Wales

Little rant before I start this article: I don’t know about everyone else, but I’m getting a little sick of the changeable weather. Don’t get me wrong, I love the sunny days, especially as they make life so much easier in the summer holidays, but this whole rain-in-the-morning, glorious-sunshine-in-the-afternoon thing is getting old, least of all because I never know what to wear in the morning!

Comments Off on How Waffles Helped us Totally Kill the School Fundraiser

My kids came home one day with a couple of those fundraising sheets we used to get back when I was still in school myself, which had me rolling my eyes before I could have a proper read at what turned out to be a rather exciting prospect. The idea was to raise funds for a brand new cricket pitch to be installed in one of the school yards and personally, I’m all for any such developments which contribute towards keeping the kids off the streets and away from trouble.
