Charity Spotlight - Calendar Boys & CALM

As January comes to a close it's time to share another good cause and charity with you. Although, it's a little late to be sharing January's Charity Spotlight it is certainly no lesser a good cause. It is in fact a very important one.

I recently came across the Calendar Boys on Twitter after a blogger friend retweeted one of their tweets, and because I'm nosy I headed over to their page to have a look. 

Calendar Boys are a group of men that met via a Slimming World Facebook group. Initially sharing ideas and support whilst on their weight loss journey, an ideal to do something for a great cause was formed. Later in the year the Calendar Boys will be releasing a 2020 calendar in aid of CALM.

Cherry & Apricot Cookies

We love a good cookie and they're one of my specialties! It's been a while since I've made a batch so I decided on a new recipe and this is the outcome.

I don't know about any other parents but I get super excited when there's a new TV show in town. If, like Joseph, your little one watches the same shows on repeat a new bright and interesting kids TV show can act as light relief!

Tinpo is a brand new kids TV show for preschoolers, brought to you by the teams behind Thomas and Friends, and Nelly and Nora, so you know that it's going to be good!

Keeping Your Home Warm In Winter

Collaborative Post

I recently posted about preparing for winter storms and as the temperature takes a dip it's time to think about keeping warm!

Colder weather can mean a chill in the house and our house used to be so draughty! But after we were part of a sustainable living project we began to think about how we could stay warm and keep out the cold, and now I'm going to share a few tips to help you too!
