What Does a Summer Body Mean to You?

For years the media have drummed into us the need for a summer body. Adverts on the TV, in newspapers, in shops and more recently online have all urged us to get bikini ready and to make sure we have the best summer body to get ready for the season of sunshine and beach holidays. I have always had hang ups with my body and didn’t wear shorts in the…

The Home and Car Insurance Dance

Twice a year so many of us get to do what I can only describe as the home and car insurance dance. It goes a little something like this.. Your insurance is up for renewal so you get a letter or email informing you of the new package that your insurance will rollover onto.

When is the right time to talk to children about …

The other day I posted on my Facebook page about vibrators being on sale in Poundland. I thought it was wrong for them to be prominently on display in the Valentines section, surrounded by cuddly toys and fluffy pillows.

Why aren’t you Wearing a Bra Mummy?

One morning I was getting ready for the day when LP walked into my room. I was wearing trousers and a vest top, sitting on my bed and trying to do my hair. She looked at me for a moment and said: ‘Mummy, why aren’t you wearing a bra?’ I explained that wearing a bra is a personal choice – not a requirement. I said that some people wear bras…

Always Be Nice – Unless Someone is in the Public Eye

That’s right isn’t it? We are all taught from a young age to be nice, if you have nothing nice to say then don’t say anything at all. But, there’s a line where celebrities and other famous people are concerned isn’t there? Famous people are fair game – you’re allowed to be mean about them. But, no, that isn’t the case. No-one deserves abuse whether they are famous or not…
