10 Activities to Keep the Whole Family Happy on Rainy Days

As I’m sat writing this post the weather is absolutely dismal, so what better way to get out of this funk than writing about all the fun that can be had on those days that can potentially be miserable. As a mum of two, one who is now 8 and also a teacher to teens - I know you’re in a losing battle when children become bored. The only time my two will bicker is when they’re just that, bored.

Making The Most Of Historical Features In Your Home

If you’re lucky enough to live in a period property you may wonder how to make the most of the history behind the home, whilst still keeping the house stylish. We’re currently on the hunt for our new home and have our eyes on a Georgian property, I absolutely love homes from this period as they’re packed with the most beautiful features and make for great family homes. My own parents have a much older home, which they have recently restored in all its glory. In this post I want to share with you a few ways you can make the most of the historical features in your home.


The importance of person-centered care in nursing homes

Person-centered care sees service users as equal partners when making decisions about the care that they receive. While this is not always possible, it should be adhered to as much as possible. When someone goes into a nursing home, they can feel that their independence and choice is being taken away, this can to some degree be negated by them being involved in all the decisions made about their care. There is no difference between for profit and nonprofit nursing homes when it comes to their capability to offer person-centered care.

Monthly Check In | January | 2020

Feeling like it's day 282 of January? Yes, me too. For this month has seemingly dragged so much so I have no idea what the actual date is or indeed what I have even achieved this month. I started the year feeling positive and fairly carefree, whereas now I'm feeling pretty miserable - and it ain't no January blues but we will get to that in a moment.

Something I wanted to do for 2020 was get back to my “roots” with blogging - going back to that diary format that I have slightly drifted away from in recent years. I love that I get to write about all sorts of things on here, exploring my passions and working with some great brands. However, I have missed that kind of brain/memory dump (perhaps that’s the wrong word!) that my blog used to be and recently I went back and read some of my earlier posts and loved looking back at different points in my life. I want to get that back. So, each month I’m going to write a little “check-in” - a place where I can spill all my thoughts, special moments and woes!

Create the perfect sleep space in 5 steps

Sleep is a topic which is consistently being studied for its effect on both physical and mental health. It is something that should be a priority for all of us, due to its importance and impact on our lives, as it controls and dictates how we cope with each situation and handle day to day life.

Here are a few of the most effective ways to achieve the ultimate sleep space in your home:
