Lockdown Thoughts

Hi, I’m Nicky and along with my husband Paul, run Insideout.  I thought it was time to do an introduction for those of you who are new to us and share some of my current thinking. Paul and I met when I was 18, gosh, that really is some time ago now.  Our oldest child Ben is now that very age, and making the most of an extremely different environment to the one we enjoyed, all those years ago.  It was the age of smoking in pubs, dancing in clubs and just enjoying life and all it through at us....

Why Christmas will Bee Merry

Conservationists have been buzzing about some of the ways that the pandemic has positively affected nature; most of all our bees! While they may be a little part of our world in stature, they make up for it in impact. They are industrious, brilliant at building, super social, and most importantly, responsible for a third of every mouthful of food we eat! In a report I saw on the BBC recently, they said bees are the world’s most important pollinators, fertilising a third of the food we eat and 80% of flowering plants. Bees and other pollinating insects have a global economic...
