Garden Guru: 5 Gardener’s Resolutions
We are back in the real world – Christmas is put to bed for another year, the longest day has passed and mild weather has encouraged very early growth of spring bulbs. A new garden year has already begun and, as ever at this time of year, I am thinking about a new start a ...
At Home: Comforting Cushions
I am a bit of a softie about my sofa, and cushions add that final touch of comfort. Unfortunately my son seems to be allergic to my feather filled favourites so it is time for a change. I don’t know why I am surprised but cushions, like pretty much everything else we take ...
What’s the Story? New Year’s Resolution
Firstly, may I wish you all a very happy New Year.
We are all hoping for good things in 2018 and I am sure you will have made a variety of ‘new start – better me’ type resolutions for the New Year. I have noticed that a lot of people have been keen to make ...

What’s the Story? Christmas Pudding
Are you a traditionalist when it comes to the end of the Christmas meal? For me nothing comes close to Christmas pudding but I have often wondered what the ‘figgy pudding’ in the song ‘We wish you a Merry Christmas’ was? Was it a fig pudding of sorts ...
Period Features: Christmas Cards with a Twist
Do you keep the Christmas cards you receive from year to year? I pick out one or two because I am a bit of a hoarder, and sentimental with it. If you happen to have one like this in your family collection let me tell you it is worth thousands because this is the first Christ ...
Out and About: Crouch End Picturehouse
It’s going to be a busy weekend for anyone who still needs to do their Christmas shopping – that probably means most of us.
But why not just take some time out and pop in to the Crouch End Picturehouse https://www.picturehouses.com/cinema/Crouch_End_Picturehouse/Wh ...
Garden Guru: Poinsettia
This ubiquitous Christmas plant is a spurge, it comes from Mexico and gets its name from the American, Joel Roberts Poinsett, who introduced it to the USA in 1825. Not very romantic, or Christmassy or British.
Does it still merit a place on your table this Christmas? well, yes ...
At Home: The Sofa Bed
Is your home going to be jam packed with house guests this Christmas? It is a bit of a problem for every household, no matter how large or small there seems to always be a time when one more bed is required. I have been looking into the subject for myself lately – here ...
