Win a beautifully personal £140 Silver Locket for Mother’s Day

When we got married, budgets were running low (as they tend to do when weddings are in the planning) and I admit one of the last things on our to do list was ‘rings’.

Dream pets – what would yours be?

If there’s one thing my children have always wanted, it’s a cat. Actually that’s not quite true. The eldest remembers us having a cat – this, my beloved Elwood. (yes Elwood – we had Jake & Elwood the Blues Brothers. Except they turned out to be the Blues Sisters. Then Jake got run over… Elwood didn’t really work anymore, did it?) Except she was elderly when No.1 came along, and she was...
