How You Can Show Support for Muslim Friends in Ramadan

Ramadan is fast approaching and that means that many of our friends, colleagues or family members will begin observing the Islamic holy month, which sees Muslims fasting during daylight hours. This year, Ramadan begins on or around Tuesday 15th May 2018 and comes to an end on or around Thursday 14th June 2018.

The fast begins at dawn and ends at sunset every day, during which time those practicing will abstain from food and drink amongst other acts. Muslims will eat breakfast in the early hours of the morning and enjoy a meal in the evening once the day has turned to night.

Order a nice canvas print

It is really easy to order a great piece of unique artwork from Hello Canvas. All you need to do is to go through your photos find a nice one, choose a frame and size and send the photo to the print firm. Within about a week, they will produce your canvas print and send it to either you or the person you are giving the gift to.

These make particularly good gifts for grandparents, especially if you have a nice photo of them and the grandchildren that can be blown up. However, for this type of print, the photo does need to be good-quality.

Bicycle First Aid Kit Review and Giveaway

With Spring on the way, soon I hope! It will be time to get back on the bikes and go out exploring the gorgeous Cornish countryside. One thing I have never thought of having was a bicycle first aid kit. With so many cars on the roads I believe it’s much safer to go off-road on the bikes. But it is inevitable that everyone will need to ride on the road at some point.

SJ Works got in contact with me a few weeks back asking if I would like to have a look at their bicycle first aid kit. I thought this would be a good time to get prepared for the sunnier, warmer weather that should be arriving shortly.
