    New Hobby!

    New hobby alert! My new hobby means that I have started to grow my own fruit and vegetables. My reasoning behind this is manyfold but one reason is knowledge. The knowledge that I will know exactly what went into the growing process. With so many chemicals that our fruit and vegetables are subject to these days I worry. Not only do I worry about my family’s health but I also worry about the impact this could be having on the environment. Then of course the is the transportation issue, reducing our carbon footprint is important and we all need to do what we can to help the world. I have…

Over the last year my cousin has died from cancer and I have a nephew…

    Charity days

    Charity days I love charity days! Now I know not everyone wants to dress up and take part but with most people working in schools, offices, banks etc it is part of the deal. The only thing I disagree with is spending lots of money on said dressing up clothes. Many charities have a theme such as red noses and that is great and you can get a red nose to show your support or even get one for your car.
