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! But even so… nothing bits that crackling warmth, does it? But of course, that means the sad...

Oh we’re in LOVE with this pretty pretty bike… *goes shopping just to fill the basket*

I was noodling about the webs, as you do when you’re supposed to be catching up on your monthly accounts, when I accidentally tripped over the doorway and found myself at Bikester. I know, me either. But stay with me here, it’ll be worth it. Bike shops are not, on a day to day basis, my usual noodle-spot. It’s not that I don’t love a cycle – oh no, I’ll whizz along the back lanes with the family on...

Wild Foraging with Robinsons Fruit Shoots

I think I first wrote about our love of foraging six years ago, when there was an apple glut and we were about to review a juicer (handy). So when Robinson’s got in touch and asked if we’d like to forage for a new flavour Fruit Shoot, it was an easy yes for us (apart from anything else, as home educators, we’re always looking for new things to learn, and this was a fab way to get 10yr old Bear out into the woods and...
