Pumpkin pitfalls: 5 recycling ideas for your Jack-O-Lantern this Halloween

Oct 30 2020

While making a Jack-O-Lantern might be a great Halloween tradition, research shows only a third of people who buy a pumpkin to carve actually cook with it.

Worse still, the UK bins an average of 8 million pumpkins every year. This adds up to the equivalent of enough pumpkin pie to feed the entire nation.

Top tips for finding your dream home

Oct 21 2020

While you might not be able to afford a huge mansion in the countryside, a penthouse apartment, or a beautiful château in southern France, that doesn’t mean you still can’t end up in your dream home. Many things make a house a home: it’s the personal touches you add, like hanging photographs of loved ones on the wall, or the choice of furniture that allow you to create a personal haven to live in.

However, owning a house allows you more freedom to be creative and change these things as often as you like. If you’re renting a property and are ready to buy your dream home, here are some tips to help you get there.

My rock star adventure – How music therapy gets me through middle-life crisis

Jun 08 2020

During the pandemic lockdown this year, the ONE thing I have missed the most was rehearsing with the band and performing at live gigs. Over the past three months, I have written a few songs (a first for me!), I have created the London Mums choir thanks to the advice of the wonderful vocal coach to the stars Cece Sammy and I have performed my own song with musicians at the park. I even sung my own song Love is easy for BBC London

My rock star adventure started with ‘dream maker’ Richard Coulson from The Rock & Roll Recruits who put together the band Devil Soul so I could tick ’singing in a rock band’ off my bucket list of things to do before I die. Making music gives me great energy and bond time with friends, fans and fellow rockers. I am living the dream! Judging from the fun I have singing and playing with talented musicians, I should have been a rock star instead of a writer. (wink!)
