I have a great appreciation of art, especially local art down here in Cornwall. I remember years ago doing GCSE art at school and taking trips to places like St Michael’s Mount down at Marazion, and St Ives where we gathered inspiration for our projects.

When an opportunity arose to review a gorgeous vintage style art poster from The John Dyer Gallery, it really was one of those offers you just don’t turn down.

Before I became a parent I was always fairly money-savvy, but knew nothing about children’s savings and what you need to save for their future. To be honest it’s hard enough nowadays to live month to month for a lot of people, so things like savings and pensions get put on the back burner.

You do need to stop and think about the future now, are you saving enough for your child? Kids get more expensive as they grow older. Mine is only a 1-year-old but she grows so fast and always needing new clothes. I dread to think what it’s going to cost through the coming years and decades!

As you get older you don’t like to think that your parents are getting older as well, and maybe starting to need extra help. These are tricky times and a hard subject to approach with loved ones. If you and your partner are unable to care for them you may need to find other options.

One of the better options is looking into care homes, there are many different types nowadays and they all cater for different stages of health and wellbeing.
