5 Jan 2013: This weekend is set to bring fairer weather, so with all the rain and dreary cloud we've had lately, why not head out into the great outdoors with the family this weekend for some fresh air.
3 Jan 2012: Before Christmas I started having fond memories of raising our own two pigs for meat around 5 years ago.
4 Nov 2011: One of the largest areas to consider if you’re looking at ways to be greener and to reduce your carbon footprint is by looking at the resources that you and your family consume.
20 Oct 2011: So many of my friends and family seem to be getting married at the moment that linking the subject with being environmentally friendly was bound to happen sooner or later.
21 Apr 2011: I'm always looking for new ways to increase my eco credentials and that, coupled with a need to save some cash this month, led to the decision to staycation for the time we had booked off from work.
16 Apr 2011: Living in Newcastle-under-Lyme makes recycling easy in many ways, because we are known to have the largest number of recycling containers for waste out of the whole UK, despite some people thinking this may make things trickier due to separating out waste and storing said containers.

28 Nov 2010: This weekend has seen me create the first attempt at my eco wrapping gift ideas.
1 Jul 2010: Well I'm happy to report (belatedly) that the bean tunnel is up and the flowers are beginning to appear on my french beans and runner beans so can't wait to start seeing little beans forming.
