Rain, Rain...Go Away............

by Claire Martinsen on Sat 28th Apr 2012 05:41

OK….so I know it’s good for gardeners and it’s great for farmers……..but is anyone else just a teeny-tiny fed up of all this rain? We’ve had such a dry couple of months that I’ve gotten out of the habit of expecting just so much rain…for days on end! I’m probably a little selfish in wishing […]

I’m always one for a challenge and yesterday I completed a personal challenge by running a 10km race!  I am by no means a natural athelete but sheer will power and determination hauled me round.  There were a lot of folk who did a combination of walking and running, but I was absolutely determined to […]

Spring Home..........

by Claire Martinsen on Sat 07th Apr 2012 04:20

We’ve managed to get a little sneaky mention in Woman and Home this month [April].  They’ve got a lovely feature about decorating your home for Spring/Easter. Its all about indulging ‘in the joys of spring by using pretty colours and fresh flowers around your home’ – so plenty of pastel colours combined with  zingy yellows […]
