By Samantha Goodwin | Dec 14, 2016

I have lost track of how many journals, diaries and planners I have bought over the years. They always look so lovely in the shop. New and shiny and promising to sort my life out and get me on the fast track to ‘awesome’. All life planners these days seem to start off with a…

[Spooky Series] Who’s Your Favourite Vampire?

By Tim Goodwin | Oct 28, 2016

IMHO Vampire films these days are a bit lame! That dude in the Twilight films is so wet, it’s no wonder he doesn’t get the girl for the first few films! At least Keifer Sutherland was as hard as nails in “The Lost Boys“… probably the greatest Vampire movie of all time, with the best…

By Tim Goodwin | Oct 26, 2016

I spent eight years as a zombie… Before I retrained as one of those #CleanEatingKilljoys I spoke of yesterday (Personal Trainers), I was a career zombie.

What do we give to Ando?

By Tim Goodwin | Oct 24, 2016

Ando was meant to be a Rotweiler. We rescued him in Portugal when he was JUST 4 weeks old… just big enough to fit him in the palm of your hand. He had the markings, jaw line, ears and back legs of a Rotti. So we thought he was gonna grow up to be a…
