Shopping ethically is really important to me. So much so that I launched a website to help people to choose products that are free from palm oil. I have some amazing products listed on there, including a palm oil free toothpaste for children made by Jack and Jill. I was honoured to be asked to review their range of eco friendly toothcare. In fact, I had no idea how big a range they had and I’m seriously impressed.

I sometimes wonder how much it’s right to share as a blogger. How much do people really want to read about what we’ve been up to at the weekend?

Isn’t it funny how much better everything seems when the sun comes out? For the last couple of days, the children have gone outside to play as soon as we arrived home from school. This afternoon is so warm that I’m sat outside with my laptop. My life hasn’t miraculously got better and yet today the only problem that seems to matter is keeping the sun off my computer screen without restricting my ability to get a tan. This is my view from the office. Our week at a glance After the excitement of World Book Day last week, we were straight…
