Spring is in the air as the bulbs wake from their wintry slumber, trees begin to unfold and the UK skies pour with rain. Or will it be snow? Who knows with this country, and global warming, but either way, inside this month David Williams gives his horticultural tips for the month – come rain or shine!
March is officially the month when we buy our Red Noses and support Comic Relief. This year it is the 24th March and there are some super t-shirt and apron designs by renowned photographer Rankin. I will certainly grab an apron; they are smashing.
Although Easter is not until April, we thought the chocoholics amongst us would appreciate an Easter Egg in time for the big event. So, we have teamed up with Hotel Chocolat to offer you the chance to win a Mint Hard-Boiled Egg and it looks divine. It’s 70% dark egg with peppermint oil and mint shards and six Mint Royales. Heaven.
Laura Malpas takes a walk around Stoke Bruerne; it’s the perfect place for excellent and accessible walking, with some fascinating heritage to explore along the way and there are plenty of refreshment opportunities too. Laura meets the people behind the museum and discovers the canal and lock system in this quaint village.
Feather dusters across Northamptonshire will be ‘dusted-off’ this month as we prepare to banish the cobwebs and ready the home for summer. Rosie Kinsella from Mills and Kinsella Interior Designers offers her advice for rejuvenating your home. Her simple, but effective advice is well worth a read.
And if you’ve ever considered a cleaner, but not sure who to choose or if they will do a good job, then Daily Poppins are offering a free clean this month – don’t miss the advert!
Happy Mother’s Day to all you gorgeous mums out there. We have some suggestions for things to do with your mum in our #WhatsOnPulse guide and if you’re stuck for something to buy, why not ‘make’ her present and bake some biscuits? Inside we have the perfect recipe. And if you pop to Homesense before, you can purchase a lovely new apron to wear while baking!
