Crossing The Line From Fact To Fiction

I quite often see things, read things and hear things that are quite probably a lie. Theres a bleeping good reason they term the internet as ‘the virtual World’ as its precisely that virtual.

Lets be honest, lets face facts folks… Life is far from a fairy tale. Theres no way that all those smug shots slapped on everybody’s Fakebook walls or Instasham pages can all be real. I will happily admit I’ve taken many photographs of neat, tidy rooms with the full knowledge that lurking behind the door is a pig sty in much need of a clean.

Our Little Lady Is Off To School!

Having waited for months to hear as to whether or not our beautiful, little lady E would be joining her brother at Primary School this autumn we were finally sent the results early this morning.

E will indeed be attending her school of choice come September and whilst I am over the moon with the news I am also emotionally broken. How on earth have almost four years flown by so flipping quickly?!

My baby has grown up, she may only be three-years of age at this current point in time but give it a few months and I’ll be browsing the rails for school uniform and packing her bags as she leaves for her first day of ‘big school’ with her older brother.…

Staying Safe On The Roads

I think it’s safe to say that it can be easy to take driving for granted. We live in an age where the vast majority of us has a car easily at our disposal and we therefore start to rack up the miles each week, be that as a driver or a passenger.

Slater and Gordon, who are experts in all things personal injury and road accident claims, recently launched their Safe Journey Guide in the hope of prompting people to consider their safety every time they get in a car and it got me thinking…
