There’s a saying (and if not, there should be) that no matter what time of day it is you will be able to find an episode of Friends playing on a digital or satellite TV channel. Similarly at least one children’s TV channel will be playing an episode of Peppa Pig. ...  Continue reading

'Is your child starting school this September? Start your own networking now', says Kirsty McCabe

"Making an effort now isn't just great for my son to get to know his future classmates better, it’s great to start a network of local parents."

"Getting 'beach body ready' - my way", by Kirsty McCabe

When my eldest son, Ethan, was busy tapping away on my (lack of) triceps and exclaiming, “Mummy, your arms shake!” - for me, it was time to take action

With summer here (more or less) it’s time to think about beach bodies - isn't it? To be honest, I’m not that fussed about being in a bikini, like most women I’d just like to be more toned and less wobbly.
