De-chocolating your house

Are your kitchen work surfaces still cluttered with Easter eggs? Maybe your stomach is wincing at the thought of another creme egg? Perhaps you're keen to see an end to the kids squabbling over whose chocolate leftovers are whose?   Much as we love a chocolate egg at Easter, there's also something satisfying about when...

Fresh as a daisy

April is here and everything's starting to feel fresher. There's the smell of freshly cut grass as people can finally get out and start mowing their lawns, it's mild enough to open the windows in the house and car here and there and let some fresh air in and the daisies are beginning to pop...

A positive cycle

A good quality bed is one of several factors that helps to create and to maintain a positive cycle when it comes to your sleep. And in few other areas are positive cycles of sleep and wellbeing more crucial than in the sporting world.   That's why we are excited to announce Millbrook Beds is...

Easter egg hunt

Here at Millbrook Beds we’ve been busy hand-making lots of beds in time for Easter deliveries. And, as if receiving a sumptuous new bed wasn't enough to make Easter that bit more special this year, some of our mattresses have been randomly hand tufted with a special edition daffodil yellow tuft.   Everyone loves a...

On the bright side

The arrival of spring may not quite have brought the mercury soaring up as much as we'd have liked.

St Patrick's Day in the U.K. took a surprising turn for the chilly as the Beast from the East returned bringing ice cold winds and several inches of snow with it. As it happened, these freezing conditions then became the setting for a very special Park Run...

Sprung

It's been a long winter. With snow persisting even on our southern shores into this weekend, in spite of the nights gradually drawing out, winter weather has felt like it's clung on to the last. But this week spring has arrived!   Tuesday 20th March is the day that marks that special moment when we...

Outside the lines

When we think of lines and stripes in the natural world, our mind automatically has to go to the zebra. A childhood favourite, there's something strikingly different in the appearance of a zebra that captivates our attention and imagination as children.   And, as adults, our fascination with the zebra can go further than this....
