Weekend Wonderings

Happy Saturday, readers! Today I’m bringing you one of my favourite discoveries.  It’s inspired by Pat’s 1970s B&B.  It’s called Subversive Cross Stitch.   There’s a lot of swearing in the kits (sorry parents reading), but you get a whole kit and get to do pictures of things that Are Not Twee. Can you think of [...]

Simplified Science: Pregnancy and your body

I think that this is rapidly becoming one of my favourite series on AOW. Katie has a way with words that can’t be beaten.
