YouTube for Kids!

Well, I guess it’s a good idea? Recently a friends child was on YouTube searching for articles relating to Minecraft and watching tutorials on how to do particular tasks  .. trying to learn & improve his knowledge which was great, until mum realised that some of the clips contained some pretty colourful language which clearly came as a bit of shock! It seems like this version of YouTube is heading in the right direction but...

Understanding Depression

Being in my 40′s it’s amazing how often the subject of depression pops up!  From all ages and from a wide and unexpected people and especially I think all of us are aware of it from magazines & news.  Obviously Stephen Fry helped raise the subject & for someone so incredibly funny it makes you stop and think .  Recently the events of Robin Williams battling depression and having watched the latest “Mocking...

Getting a good nights sleep??

Having been running with a friend this week who’s 4 children have all gone down with a horrible sickness bug at different stages during the last 10 days, lack of sleep has been a big topic! I thought actually I’m sure all of us at some point find a week when you just feel your’re not getting enough, whether it’s new mummies, work stress or other worries about home or money or family health.  I thought this was...
