hoppy easter!

NEW HOME FOR THE HEDGEHOGS We received more than 220 of your lovely hedgehogs with our Knit a Hedgehog campaign. We sold some here at Prima and raised almost £300 for the British Hedgehog Preservation Society. The rest are now with the charity and are available to buy at shop.britishhedgehogs.org.uk/product/prima-hedgehogs. We used to have a black and white rabbit called Thumper. My husband, Graham, and I got him for our two boys when they were young, thinking it would be a great way to teach them about caring for an animal and the perfect pet to bring them joy. And indeed, Thumper fulfilled every requirement. He loved being held, hopping round our garden and washing his face in an adorable way. Yet while the boys loved him, the most surprising thing was…

I get to the end of the week and think, ‘Oh no, it’s a mush at the bottom of the salad box that I haven’t eaten again.’ So I’m really trying to cook from scratch and force myself to eat everything, and insist on the kids doing it as well, which they’re less enthralled about. In the jungle, everything was taken…

suited & booted!

SUITS YOU A great trouser suit is a worthwhile investment. Beautifully cut and figure flattering, the perfect two-piece can make you feel a million dollars. Plus, it’s suitable for most of the year, depending on how you layer it: cotton T-shirts in the summer, chunky polonecks in the winter (as well as the chiffon blouses and cotton shirts that go in between!). GET SHIRTY The humble cotton pinstripe is back on the agenda. Slouchy and slightly oversized, this is perfect for a more laid-back look. Pair with everything from slim straight-leg trousers to full flouncy skirts. Alternatively, try a pair of tailored shorts, which are a key trend for this season. BUTTON UP Take centre-stage in a modern military jacket, which will have you covered for all occasions. Dress up with wide-leg trousers and a…
