Awards and Sports Day

A couple of years ago my son came first in sports day. He was naturally delighted and loved his trophy. He would show it to anyone who cared to listen (namely family members who humoured him and let him speak about it). Sadly after a year had passed we received a letter asking him to [...]

I know you can get some great basketball gifts at and I found this out when I was looking at considering basketball as a fitness activity for me in the new year. It would be more fun than exercising at the gym on static machinery like a walker! Problem is you need a group. And when you are [...]

Icy Fingers … Not!

As strange as it sounds I like winter. I like the cold dark nights, the smokiness when you blow out into the cold air, and best of all the warmth when you get indoors. I like sitting by a glowing fire and drinking hot chocolate with melted marshmallows. I like huddling up with my hubby on [...]

My son has started horse riding recently and it is amazing how much an equestrian hobby can cost. And we are not talking just the cost of the lessons but all the riding gear:- the helmet, the jodhpurs, the boots, the back brace, etc etc. Thankfully his teacher is great. Because she knows how quickly they [...]

My son has started attending sports sessions over the mid term school break at our local sports centre. It is not that I am expecting him to start winning basketball trophies but it does keep him very active. And the best bit is I get to shop for stuff like new trainers, basket balls, raquets, sport clothes [...]
