As a diabetic, eye health is something that is really important to me. Type 2 diabetes can have a detrimental effect on eye health and eyesight, which means that getting regular eye tests is not only vital to keeping my eyes in tip-tip condition but is also a requirement of me, as a driver.

The UK’s Most Expensive Neighbourhoods

The UK’s Most Expensive Neighbourhoods

Living in the South East of England can be an expensive business; our proximity to London means that house prices and rents are still very high and that expensive perimeter around the capital is only increasing with improved high-speed travel. In the area we previously lived, we saw house prices steadily creeping up to the point that, when it came to moving house, we decided that enough was enough and moved to a less expensive …

Encouraging Acceptance of Others

Acceptance of others is something that is SO important to Husband and I and is firmly at the core of how we parent the girls. We encourage them to see past colour, creed, ability and everything else that makes people different, so when VTech asked us to share this info, I was more than happy to do so: Children are being brought up in increasingly multi-cultural societies.

Best Friend
