A Li'l Something Sweet [That's Not On The High Street]

We all have someone special in our lives that we cherish, adore and just want to spoil on special occasions - yet often it's difficult to find a gift that expresses just how much they mean to us, because, well, there's not much inspiration out there on the high street, and Google-hunting the perfect gift takes time if you don't know what you're looking for in the first place.


Since getting back from Bluestone National Park, the boys have been suffering with a severe case of cabin fever...and as patient as I like to think I am, my last nerve is beginning to twang like a string on a rusty banjo.

Growing up, the best place in the world to be was our garden. Running up and down the path through our vegetable patches, wearing Summer sandals without socks and with red ribbons twisted around my ringleted pigtails, I wove in and out of the sweet peas and beanstalks, as I raced my Granny’s sheltie collie dog.  With a handkerchief knotted up on my head to keep the sun at bay, my childhood was completely carefree.
