Coats for Teen Boys – What A Nightmare (but we FOUND one!)

Clothing teenage boys is a standard parenting horror show of course – I’ve written recently about finding jeans to fit their weird man-child body shape, when they streak upwards but not outwards in their early teens. And then there’s the whole “I don’t like the way that looks/feels/has sleeves/has no hood/isn’t three sizes too big”. Total minefield. But then.. there’s The Coat Battle....

Pud In A Mug? Yes. Keep ‘Em If You Can. *hollow laugh*

A few weeks ago now we were asked if we’d like to try the new Pud In A Mug range. I’ll be honest – I said we’d give it a go (because, y’know. Pud. IN a mug.), but my hopes were not high.

Stop Your Phone Being Hacked – our top tips

I’m sure we all remember Three Mobile was hacked last year, and the supposedly-safe data of more than six million customers was compromised. Hacking is a very real concern; not just for big companies but for all of us at the small phone-in-your-bag level. My personal bank details have been hacked three times in the last two years, and I’m often nervous that I’m not taking extra steps to protect my phone the way I do...
