I am confused by clothing sizing this week. Would love to hear your views.

Clothes sizing- how does the fashion industry get this so wrong?

We recently moved into our forever house and it needs a lot of work on it (we currently have a lift). We can't go any further until we decide whether to have a kitchen dining room or lounge dining room

Would love your thoughts...

Hello everyone.

I have a rainy day afternoon activity for the children. A short blog post to inspire you to keep sticks from walks, gather in googly eyes and store until the arrival of a wet afternoon! Ace for children of all ages. Enjoy.

It’s nearly summer, supposedly. So, quick! Let’s all dress like idiots.

A flash of sun -that’s by no way Mediterranean - and it’s in with the bright orange playsuits and off with the England shirts.

I'm not exactly sure what we're supposed to do re commenting.

Problem is, if you want to discuss an issue in a blog, that could be a whole thread by itself.

So not sure what the form is.
