Free Printable No Trick or Treaters Sign


Small No Trick or Treaters SignHalloween is a lot of fun for children, but it can be a scary and nerve-wracking time for elderly or vulnerable people. Genuine trick or treating children don't want to venture where they are not welcome or disturb people who would prefer to be left alone, so a sign like this can be helpful to everyone. You are very welcome to print this out and use it if you would like to. You could perhaps take one round to an elderly neighbour or relative if it would be useful to them. Some older people get quite intimidated by lots of people knocking on the door, particularly if they are in costumes and it's not easy to see who they are.

Little Lifts: 9 Easy Ways to Boost your Mood


A ring of pastel coloured flowers, containing the title text 9 Ways to Boost Your Mood. It's fair to say, here in the UK we have had a pretty epic summer. The sun has shone almost constantly since June, and even now, where we would normally be moaning about the terrible weather and hoping for an Indian summer,  we are still enjoying some pretty warm days. They are becoming fewer though, and the nights are drawing in. This week it's been noticeably darker in the mornings too, and I've been thinking about how to combat those low feelings the winter weather sometimes brings. You know, when it just becomes a little bit harder to stay positive? Here are my favourite ways to lift a low mood, I hope they help you too, when you're feeling down. Feel free to add your own in the comments.

Kirstie Allsopp's Confession - Would You Smash your Child's iPad?


Kirstie Allsopp admitted today that she smashed her children's ipads to teach them a lesson. I don't want to pass judgement on any parent, since we are all doing a very difficult job and we should be supporting each other, not taking the moral high ground. I also don't agree with trolling and bashing people publicly, especially over what is essentially a difference of  opinion. I hope this post will be viewed more as constructive criticism, or alternative parenting advice. Kirstie, I'm sure you're a great mum, and you must parent how you see fit, but I can't agree with you and so here are all the reasons not to start vandalising anyone's belongings today.
