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. I figured this would be the sweet equivalent to an instant soup – hot, but a bit.. blah. They arrived in their unassuming little sachets, and I stashed them in the cupboard next to the baked beans. Where they were...

Perfect Autumn Essentials – Pretty Jeans & Comfy Boots from Next

Autumn is probably my favourite time of year to dress for – and my daughter appears to have inherited my enthusiasm. After months of a lacklustre approach to grabbing the nearest t-shirt and shorts, she’s suddenly re-organising her jumpers and insisting that she has ‘nothing to wear’. Well, to be fair, she’s probably grown at least 6″ since last November, and none of her leftover winter wardrobe...

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...

Clothes for your man-sized boy teenager.

Clothes for your man-sized boy teenager.

I thought they were tricky to find clothes for when they were six, and demanded red tractor t-shirts, soft-pyjamas-with-buttons-on-please and absolutely no yellow. But these boys of mine haven’t got any easier as they’ve got older. The trouble is, teenagers just stop being catered for specifically – around the age of 13 they suddenly disappear from the kids clothing sections; but adult clothing doesn’t really...

This is scary – 18yr olds and that credit trap…

This year I became the scared-but-proud owner of an 18yr old (I know. Frankly I *am* too young, thanks for noticing). Aside from the general astonishment that I grew this huge man-thing that looms around the house and inhales the contents of my cupboards at regular intervals in the middle of the night, this age change has brought about a not-unexpected-by-us-but-apparently-a-total-shock-to-him alteration in life view. Because,...
