July picks | Watch, read, listen, wear and eat

Approaching the end of the school year already... That feels odd. It's been a busy year so far that shows no sign of slowing down. How come term-time seems so frantic and yet the prospect of the summer holidays brings its own panic?

Travel | Barford luxury family holiday home in Cornwall

Barford, Cornwall - luxury holiday rental for families and big groups

‘I knew the family who used to live in that house!’ grinned my friend as we chatted in the school playground. She’d run after me to tell me, having seen a picture of Barford I’d posted on Instagram. ‘He was at school with me and always used to boast he had his own beach. We thought he was joking.’ No joke. Barford really does overlook a beautiful secluded beach. But that’s not even its most impressive feature. Really!

8.13am: I'm writing this from my bed, cup of tea on the go, while a houseful of kids who've been up since 6am are in various rooms on various screens.

Food | Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug review

On this baking hot day it seems impossible that a couple of weeks back we were enjoying/enduring a rainy half term. British summers, eh? But we were. It got to that time in the afternoon when the boys were driving me and each other a bit potty. What to do? In an effort to keep the peace and fend of any potential hangriness (and boy, do my kids do a good line in hangry!), we headed into the kitchen in search of something to eat.

David Lloyd Leisure family and kids activities holiday club children swimming

With just a few weeks left of school and wall-to-wall sunshine right now, me and the kids are summer ready. And a family membership to David Lloyd couldn't have come at a better time. We descended en masse to discover what facilities are available to families and children. Turns out, quite a lot...
