Sugar has become a real problem in our modern diet. The average person consumes around 140 teaspoons a week of the sweet stuff. And it isn't just about how much we spoon into our tea, so much of our sugar consumption is hidden in the foods we buy from cereals to ready meals. Here are some top tips to help you easily curb your sugar intake without too much hassle.
While the committed cook in you might yearn for a brand new kitchen with every new appliance under the sun, installing one that has been professionally supplied is an expensive undertaking, not to mention time consuming and quite disruptive to the household. Instead, why not stick to your budget and get creative about ways to refresh rather than replace what you already have. Here are a few ideas to help you do just that.

People often tell me my music taste is eclectic and I agree because I really do like a bit of everything! I love the shuffle setting on my ipod, you take it for granted but things have moved on a bit since my 1980's Walkman days when the best thing ever was the auto-rewind, and it is great to be surprised with a track from your collection you haven't heard for ages.

Here's the first 10 in no particular order - I hope you find some gems in there which will become your favourites too!

We all know birthdays are one of the most exciting times in a child’s life (us adults too!) but helping them understand how far away their birthday is can be a tricky task for parents of small children. We use the 'how may sleeps until my birthday?' method in our house and the Sleepzzz Until Birthday Buddy is a great compliment to this idea. It can help control their patience and help them understand the passing of time while having lots of fun anticipating their big day!
