Orla Kiely Apron For Sport Relief, Even Sooty And Sweep Have One!

When it comes to a big charity effort like sport relief, I don't need an excuse to blog, but if I did I'm sure these super cute children's TV characters would put up a pretty persuasive argument. As the current run of 'The Great Sport Relief Bake Off' comes to an end today, it seems it's not just the winners of each episode that have got their hands on one of the designer aprons first seen as a prize for the winners.

Yes, children's TV icons Sooty and Sweep have got in with the action showing off their miniature versions of the Sport Relief Apron in a fun photo shoot. They were joined in the fun bake-off  themed photo shoot by personality Michelle Heaton.

Orla Kiely has created a limited edition apron for Sport Relief available from HomeSense and TK Maxx stores

How cute is that, I almost want sooty and sweep baking with my in my kitchen. It's not just celebs and furry characters that can get their hands on this apron though - it's being sold in HomeSense and TK Maxx for £12.99, with at least £5.25 going to Sport Relief. The apron is limited edition as well, so you'll own something cool for your kitchen and be helping a great cause as well. 

Me in the Sport Relief Apron


I have supported Comic Relief in different ways over the year's but I haven't yet taken the plunge and entered a sport relief event yet - it's something I'd love to do one day, and I am fully behind anything that encourages us all to get fit and active, while raising money for a great cause. If you want to find out how it's done keep an eye out for the Sports Relief Games which take place between the 18th and 20th March - and the big TV fundraising night on the Friday.

* I was sent this apron for the purposes of this blog but am a regular supporter of this fundraising event.

Hobbycraft Lino Printing Online Workshop Review

 One of the things that has been great to see now we have come through the worst of the Covid pandemic, has been companies continuing with the online activities they launched during the lockdowns. Hobbycraft now offer a wide range of workshops online and in-store through the year, and I recently took part in an online lino printing workshop, so I thought I'd blog a bit more about what's on offer and the workshop I took part in. What workshops are on offer?  These vary through the year, and can involve seasonal, adults, and kid's workshops in-store and online. If you click on the workshops you are interested in finding out more about, you can find out about what's included in the price, what you'll learn, and the available workshop dates, there's also the opportunity to request private events for groups. While I'm writing this, there are workshops on Cricut, watercolour painting, knitting, paint pouring, seasonal wreath making, using clay, sewing, and a new

The Christmas Holiday By Phillipa Ashley Book Review

I apologise now for any or all mentions of the word Christmas in this blog post, but with a lot going on in life and work I just have to go with whatever calls to me in my reading pile, which this time was The Christmas Holiday by Phillipa Ashley.  Released last year, this book will always have a special place in my bookish heart because I helped with some crafting inspiration for it, and to see my name in the credits of this paperback is something I will always treasure. I was so excited to see how and where my ideas were used, but managed to control my impatience and not skip any pages. Although I have been a member of Phillipa's Facebook group for a while, this is my first read of hers  (have another in my reading pile) so I opened this book with a mix of anticipation and a slight fear of the unknown - I really wanted to love the book I helped with! And love it I did. It made a refreshing change to read a novel set in the Lake District, and also one which wasn't just a stere

Hocus Pocus 2 Film Review

Halloween is one of my favourite times of year for films, and I've loved all the witch and wizard magical, spooky-themed films since I was young. I was really looking forward to seeing Hocus Pocus 2, but I had no idea what to expect from the sequel. Would they pick up where they left off in 1993, move on a bit but with a strong connection to the original, or do something completely different? This Disney + release turned out to be the latter, and I found myself watching a modern-day Salem on screen. The old town is now a 'historic district' which has the air of a novel tourist attraction, complete with a mystical magic shop which presents the story of Salem and the Sanderson Sisters as some kind of commercial entertainment enterprise - hear the story, buy some magical merch.  The detail in Gilbert's shop and his stage show presentation are very apt for the modern day, and the feeling that the Sanderson sister's legend has become less powerful and more humorous myth
