I recently had the great pleasure of writing about one of my specialist subjects – my home county of Staffordshire!
“Welcome to Staffordshire” is published by Kingfisher Visitor Guides and can be found in leading hotels across the county. I was excited to find one in my room during a recent stay at Swinfen Hall Hotel (yes, I did tell them that I’d written it when we checked out, and no, I didn’t sign it!).
It’s an absolutely beautiful guide with gorgeous photography and I’m so proud to have been involved in it. It covers everything from days out to nightlife, history to shopping, eating out to sport, and much more in between.
Have a look at it on the Kingfisher website (link).
The October/ November edition of The Green Parent magazine includes the latest in my series of interviews with parenting authors and experts.
I spoke to writer, blogger and podcaster Tsh Oxenreider, founder of The Art of Simple, about her book At Home In The World and she gave me her top tips for travelling the globe with children.
There were times on the trip when Kyle and I would be frustrated that the kids weren’t amazed at everything, and we realised that when everything is awesome, nothing is awesome.
We need that down time in-between to just live life. We don’t need to have adventures all the time. This was a good lesson for me.
Full disclosure: I am a big fan of Tsh and have been for many years, so it was wonderful to have the opportunity to speak with her!
