Warwick Castle – Perfect for kids

During the Easter Holidays we wanted to get away and do something special with the kids, as well as wear them out, but we didn’t really want to leave the country as we have lots of things we need to be home for. So we decided to stick to day trips and stretch to 1 […]

The FM Club

This week I have been mocked and ruthlessly roasted by a bunch of cool, finger on the pulse of pop culture, all about the bants, Generation Z’ers.

How to tie a tie?

I don’t know where this kid gets it from. He looks forward to Sunday school every single week and this week he decided to hold his own solo Sunday School at the back of the Church, Very studious and should be commended…apparently this is the way you wear a tie. Excelling in some areas but […]
