Last week I shared tips and tricks to help you make your bedroom a lot more sleep-friendly. I was struck by two items: keeping the light natural and keeping the temperature neutral.

Saturday, as we all know, was Earth Hour day. The lovely Pop Princess penned a little post on that with a few ideas on what people could do between 8:30PM and 9:30PM while their lights were off.

I’m always interested in learning what other people do in order to feel happier and to be happier. The short term things that improve your mood like exercise or lift your spirits like a simple act of kindness does.Today’s post is a combination of my favourite mood-boosting past times and that of many of my closest friends.

In my home we have a small television in the den just off the kitchen. I bought it almost eight years ago when one of my friends suggested that the children who lived with me and those who stayed at the house on an interim basis would like it. I took her advice and bought a small 35CM colour TV.
