Loving our new egg poacher #HealthyBreakfast

Earlier today this box was full to the brim with photo albums. I have been through every single photo and made digital copies of all of them! It's one of the hardest things to declutter but so glad it's done. Now just to tackle the other 4 boxes 📦

Sign the petition

I've just signed to show my support for the creation of bottle deposit return schemes across the UK.

It would mean a lot to me if you’d add your name - you can sign here:

Every day in the UK, 35 million plastic bottles are used and discarded. Almost half of these are not recycled and many of them end up in our oceans - killing marine life and threatening fragile ecosystems.

Deposit return schemes work by placing a small deposit on a plastic bottle, which you get back when you return it.

The more bottles that are returned, the more can be re-used or recycled, reducing the amount that ends up as litter, in our oceans and in landfill.

It only takes a minute to get involved.
