Like a lot of people who watched Stacey Dooley’s documentary on the BBC last week regarding ‘Fashion’s Dirty Secrets’ I haven’t been able to get those images and facts out of my head.

Hi, how are you on this Friday? Good I hope. I hope you have a lovely weekend planned. This week, aside from ploughing through a lot of admin, I have mostly been enjoying the return of the sunshine via leafy walks home from school, impromptu trips to the park and a few 5k runs.

Hi everyone, how are you on this Friday? Good I hope. I hope you have a lovely weekend planned. So the big news from me this week is that I accomplished my 10k race last Sunday. And, I survived! Sadly I didn’t get under my 60-minute target, but was very pleased with the 1hr 3mins 59 seconds I achieved. Running…
