Weddings are so tightly entwined with emotions (and big hats) that most people get swept away organising what is meant to be the biggest day of their lives. Personally I would prefer a small intimate occasion and if I ever get to the metaphoric altar then it will be something quiet and sedate. But, for most, weddings are a huge celebration affair.

The most iconic car of Italy the FIAT 500 has been a style icon for years. A tiny bug of a car which evokes scenes of comedy whilst still retaining it's chic Italian edge.

I used to love a TV programme called This Life. A drama all about a bunch of law school graduates living in a large house share in London. We all wanted Anna and Miles to get together.

For me, there is nothing more amazing or magical than nature. How an acorn can grow into a huge oak tree seems to defy all logic.

After reading this story of a sperms journey how is it possible that anyone gets pregnant at all?

I always found bingo calls fell into this same camp and appeared exotic and intriguing. How could anyone know all the calls and how special ....
Like a cross between My Little Pony, Beanie Babies and Telly Tubbies the Fluffy Favourites Themes and Symbols infographic hits you in the face with cute, fluffy toys in the banner. There is no mistake as to the theme and content.

Most popular improvements with high returns are conservatories, window replacement, roofing and entry door replacements (surprised me).
Investments of a lower return are bathrooms, loft conversion, new carpets and kitchen.
The information presented has been a surprise and education for me, I would have considered kitchen and bathroom refurbishment to be at the top of the list for return.
I grew up with two parents who were both self-employed and to me this seemed like a 'no brainer' choice. Why would anyone want to be employed and answer to a boss? I guess this was engrained into me and since an early age I only ever considered working for myself.
