This month sees another sporting spectacle, the Winter Olympic Games at Sochi in Russia, an event which will see over 90 nations compete for medals in a series of games where the backdrop to everything will be the frozen conditions supplied by Mother Nature. In terms of sheer bravado and nerve, the speed and dexterity of winter sports is arguably even more compelling than the achievements made in the summer [...]Continue reading

It’s December and Christmas adverts are everywhere, reminding us of things we must have to make the perfect Christmas. For the children this usually means the latest must have toy or game. Did you know that in Britain we spend an average of £3billion annually on toys? But do children really need them? According to Psychologist Oliver James (author of ‘Love Bombing’), no they don’t.

For the first time in many years, British weather forecasters have accurately forecast (albeit just a few days in advance) a BBQ summer which, for many of us, means the chance to eat outdoors and enjoy a range of foods that don’t necessarily require a knife and fork.

Teaching your child how to be confident, caring and healthy can be an absolute mine field – particularly in modern times. There are so many distractions, from the instant gratification of a microwave meal to the incessant tapping of a phone-addicted teen.
