oh hello!

In the magazine world, Christmas celebrations are always a little premature… we’re normally hunting for festive trimmings at the end of spring, but it’s always exciting and it means a well-earned rest isn’t far off. This year we’ve shared our most amazing crafts in an ‘eco Christmas special’ (if we can’t have snowmen and mistletoe, we think a green Christmas is just perfect!). Two bonuses here: you’ll find most of what you need in your stationery stash and garden and you’ll save a bit of money. Our eco-friendly trees and trimmings are easy to recycle, too, so those of you with millennial kids will score some green points. We hope you’re inspired by the ideas on page 98. For littler kids, there are a few cute ideas that won’t break…

star letter

As soon as the winter season arrives, I start feeling down and lethargy sets in. It’s as if a dark cloud covers me. I have to force myself to get up each morning, go to work and pretend to be engaged in office meetings, though I’m really dreaming about my bed and Nutella sandwiches. When the weekend comes, I avoid all invitations from friends and get irritable when my family wants to spend time watching TV series – all I want to do is be left alone. While paging through the July 2019 issue of Your Family, I came across an article that helped me understand that my feelings weren’t just me being anti-social and lazy – I could actually be suffering from seasonal affective disorder (aptly known as SAD). I’ve…
