    Living life to the full

    We're on this earth for a short while so it makes sense to live life to the full. And yet things get in the way of us enjoying our time: every day stresses about our families, health, finances and 101 other things. It can sometimes feel as if we're living in a fog of little anxieties, waking in the early hours worrying about something or other. That makes it hard to see the bigger picture. Every so often, something happens that makes us sit up and realise that this is it and we don't get another shot at life (depending on your beliefs, of course). […] more

    Celebrate your partner

    Everyone blossoms with loving attention. But sometimes it can be difficult to summon up love and affection for your partner when you've been giving it out to the kids all day – along with a healthy dose of patience. All too often when we're feeling tired, what started as an innocent request can get tangled up into a nagging match, or we switch off when our partner starts talking.

    Help your child beat bullying

    Bullying can be one of the most challenging experiences our children might face away from the safety of the home. And it can be incredibly dis-empowering for parents, who want to protect their children and despair at seeing them upset, but don't know what to do. Children can be cruel and, as books like Lord of the Flies show, are adept at spotting difference and weakness in their peers. Bullying often comes from a place of fear: the perpetrating child may have difficulties at home, or feel anxious themselves at school. […] more

    Surviving an off-grid winter

    There was a point during last year’s interminable winter when I turned to my partner and said; “Give me a nice warm flat with double glazing, central heating I can turn up ridiculously high, a washing machine, a piping hot power shower, wall to wall carpets, a shop next door and a massive flatscreen TV.” Okay, perhaps not the flatscreen, but if someone had offered us the rest of the above during one of those snowbound afternoons, I would have leapt in with both feet and sod the ethical implications. We debated for a long time whether we’d do another off-grid winter. […] more
