by Greg Brina on July 20, 2014

Running, cycling, circuits, rowing and new fangled fast fitness routines with names like Insanity, Intensity and Ignominy (ok we made that last one up – but look up its real meaning – it might not be far off!). There are lots of ways to get fit. We could give you a rundown of the calories you’ll burn doing each, 1000 in half an hour, 500 in 30 minutes. Or we could tell you some more interesting sports that offer a little more - activities that are more fun and less foreboding. Here they are then, our top 5 interesting ways to exercise - to get you into tip-top shape this summer.

Designing a Home Office

July 11, 2014

The Home Office. No, not the one presided over by Home Secretary, the Rt Hon Theresa May MP. We’re talking the space in your home where you can get work done. Somewhere quiet and comfortable, free of distractions so that you can maximise concentration. Whether that’s for paid work, domestic admin or school homework – a […]

Britains most interesting houses…

July 9, 2014

Thanks to programmes like Grand Designs, us Brits are getting much more creative with our houses. And whilst bedsits, 1 & 2 bed apartments and square-box semi’s might might be the stock and trade for most of us, those with the wherewithal are thinking laterally (and – it would seem – vertically).

A great sporting weekend for the Brits… if not for Brit competitors

July 6, 2014

It’s been a great weekend for sports fans with 4 major events taking place over the 3 days (and 3 of them on home soil). Sadly, 3 out of four of them have been a bit of disappointment in terms of competitive success. We guess that run of super form we’ve been riding since the Olympics had to […]

Sleeping in a Cluttered Room

July 1, 2014

Messy bedrooms. The stock and trade of seven-year-olds the world over. But what starts off as an innocent childhood habit of not cleaning away the toys can knock your yin and yang well out of kilter in later life. Unless you’re Tracey Emin, a cluttered bedroom is likely to have a negative effect on your wellbeing. […]

Moving Home in Summer

June 27, 2014

Moving home doesn’t always go as planned. Getting the deposit down on a perfect rental flat (before someone else beats you to it) might mean you need to be ready to move quickly.
