Quidditch , Quidditch, Quidditch - "shut up woman"

After much preparation the long awaited Quidditch game finally played out today. Flying on brooms? no, big teams? no, one boy one dad and a hoop in a tree? yes

yes the garden had Gryffindor and Slytherin banners made by the boy

 what every father wants, a Firebolt (in this case 42) for his birthday made from the inner of a fabric roll




Yes Gryffindor won fairly about 600 to 150 but smiles all round in the end (well sort of - there were small voices wanting another hour of it)


Ohh My...

The rather clever lovelies at Ohh Deer are at it again - submit your designs as a competition to be a pencil in there pencil case (or an illustrator contributor).
As ever the idea is fantastic, showcasing work that you can see what it looks like on a t shirt, vest or sweatshirt, the chance for it to be on sale and obviously the opportunity to be part of the deer family.

Here's my three - two of which were the husbands birthday present - Hoorah!



Yes yes I know I've only put mine there but there were way too many to choose anyone else's so go click for yourself. Not only that there be 15% off Ohh Deer this Easter - go shop!

William's Wish

A couple of years ago I met Sarah, strangely at a networking event in central London and it turned out we lived 5 minutes away from each other. She told me at the time that her son, William had health problems but little did I know how much.

Six year old William had a bowel transplant that saved his life when he was a baby. His mum, Sarah set up William's Wishes to support families of children who have intestinal failure and are dependent on TPN and who are waiting for small bowel transplants. Alongside awareness of these almost hidden conditions Sarah also does her best to provide treats for the children and their families.

As adults no one likes to talk about bowel problems and conditions so it's hard to imagine what it's like being so small and and in need of a 'new tummy' (as William calls it) let alone be a parent and have to watch your child suffer so much.

If you think you can help at all with raising awareness, fundraising or just a hello of support please contact Sarah
