One Word 2018: Dare

I heard about the ‘One Word Movement’ from Kate Takes 5 last year, and loved the idea of setting a one word intention for the year. It’s a simple alternative to the usual list of unoriginal New Year’s resolutions that are trotted out each year – and have usually been abandoned long before the start […]

Christmas memories past and future

Linking up with the Christmas memories linky over on Dr How’s Science Wows…   Christmas is a memorable time of year – for children in particular.  It’s the most magical holiday of them all where feats of sheer impossibility become achievable in one night.  There’s all the sparkle and glitter; from a tastefully minimalist tree, to obscenely decadent flashing […]
