Some of you may already know my issues with my "garden". For those who don't, let me elaborate.... I live in a privately rented home-unfortunately the luck gods weren't smiling down on us when they were handing out ways to get a mortgage. I absolutely love my house (there are always issues but I love … Continue reading How to get the best out of your garden with Grass Direct
Oh my goodness, did anyone else see that great big thing in the sky this week, giving off heat and making everyone cheery?? I think they call it the sun, but it's been so long since we last saw it, I can't be quite sure. It makes me want to get out into my garden … Continue reading How to make a boring garden look, well, less boring!
We were very kindly sent a rather cute play set to review from My Fairy Garden. Olivia already owns two of the My Fairy Garden sets, but they're the ones that you can plant seeds in, and they require soil (so they're a little on the messy side!)

I say contraption, because its … Continue reading B&M 4 Seater Folding Picnic Table Review

A deal was struck and a recipe for botanically brewed ginger beer was provided as security. The loan was never … Continue reading Fentimans Botanically Brewed Beverages-Review
On Saturday (8th April) myself and Kye took a short train ride into the City of Canterbury. As someone who is in the city each week for press nights at the Marlowe Theatre, I know the town well-but I'm ashamed to say I've never taken Kye to The Canterbury Tales.
