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...

If you’ve got a pony-mad girl, this find I just spotted over in the M&S sale just might make her smile a bit… I just love it! I’m not a huge fan of animals on my clothes, but with a subtle and beautiful print like this you really can’t go wrong. And there’s not many girls I know who wouldn’t love a herd of white horses galloping through the spray. It’s a polyester tee so it’ll feel...
