This March: Snuggle up on the sofa with Charlie’s Mum and the Great Interior Design Challenge, WIN the Beatrix Potter Collection on DVD and make a beautiful bunch of paper hydrangeas that will look springtime perfect on your coffee table.
Snuggle Up with The Great Interior Design Challenge
We’re in full agreement with Charlie’s Mum blogger, Susan Grey, when it comes to cracking telly. Spring might be just around the corner but there’s still a definite chill in the air which makes snuggling up with something cosy on the telly a real treat. Right now Susan has been indulging in one of our BBC favourites – The Great Interior Design Challenge – and she’s written a hilarious review and blog about the show which will lure you right in! Charming and witty, this is a really fun post which will get even the least interior design-inclined viewer itching for a revamp. Great stuff!

These magical tales of animals like Squirrel Nutkin, Mrs Tiggywinkle and, of course, Peter Rabbit, are enough to make any adult feel a little nostalgic.
