WIN – We’ve 6 copies of the National Geographic Kids ‘Weird but True!’ Annual to give away

When I was a kid, I was obsessed by ‘interesting facts’ that I used to ‘entertain’ people with. Even now I can reel off a string of amazing things you may not know, like the fact that your foot is the same length as the distance between your wrist and the inside of your elbow. Or did you know that the Colosseum in Rome had a retractable roof two thousand years ago? Or that the Cookie Monster’s real name...

Win a winter’s worth of logs worth £220 with Certainly Wood!

So – have you lit yours yet? I’ll admit it – we gave in to the temptation last weekend, and lit our woodburner for the first time since last winter. Naturally it wasn’t really cold enough outside, and within an hour we were opening all the windows and stripping off jumpers and socks in an effort to cool down again!

Oh, sure, there’s definitely less sleeping/eating worries, and much less cleaning of bodily fluids. But other big stuff comes along...
