Denmark’s always been on my ‘to go’ list. Of all the Scandinavian countries, it’s the one I probably know most about (thanks, Hans Christian Anderson) – I’ve always wanted to see the iconic Nyhavn harbour, plus the Little Mermaid statue obviously. But what else is there to do? If I took the family for a stay on Denmark, what could we do (beyond a lot of cycling, of course)? Turns out, lots…...

Cash For Grades. Do You? Would you? SHOULD you?

Wa-a-ay back in the days when I was a teenager facing my end of year exams, one of my best friends admitted that if she passed them all her parents had promised to buy her a leather jacket – the first time I’d come across a basic Cash For Grades offer (and do not discount the fact that a leather jacket was the very height of coolness in our circle in the late 80’s…). This particular friend tended to struggle...

This woman had a day off. And the day off was good.

So last week I was planning my day off, remember? I had it all worked out, thanks to One4all, and I was really looking forward to selfishly enjoy every last second. So at the end of the week I put my plan into action. I took a day off. via GIPHY I Took.ADay.Off. I KNOW!
