Keeping Dads Kissably / Huggably Smooth!

I thought I should write this post as it is coming up to Father’s Day really fast and this is a topic that for me is pretty important for mine and my children’s safety.  I went to hug my husband – nothing out of the ordinary but I’m setting the scene as you will see.…

Desk Jobs Are More Dangerous Than You May Think

What springs to mind when you think about modern jobs?  A lot of the time, people will automatically think of office jobs.  They imagine several rows of people just sitting at a desk all day typing away at their computer barely moving and let’s not forget the long hours.  Desk jobs are often good when it…

5 Top Gifts Ideas for Pre-Teen or Tween Girls

Following up from my previous post Unique Coming of Age Gift Ideas For Daughters I thought I would write another post that covered pre-tweens and tweens.
