Win a £130 Tea Bundle (that’s 400 cups of tea!) from Adagio Tea. Oh yes.

Tea. It’s not secret round here that I love the stuff. And like so many things in life, I’ve grown a little more selective in my old age. Once I thought tea only came in packs of 240 small white bags (unless you were at Granny’s house.

Suffering through Blue Monday? Frankly, This Woman Needs A Day Off.

Today’s Blue Monday. Before I even knew it was a ‘thing’, I definitely knew it was a thing. We all recognise it, don’t we? Christmas is done, the parties are over, the pretty sparkly lights are back in the loft. Work’s busier than you can handle, the weather is bloody miserable, and payday is still such a very very long way away. Frankly, if payday wasn’t quite so far off (and the credit card...
