Meet my 'mother in law'. Also known as Crazy Grandma, Mrs K and the Lady from the Tearoom depending on who you're talking to. At last I can blog her because she has sorted herself out a decent website for her award winning tearoom, B&B and licensed restaurant at Wold View House. One that finally conveys the wonder of her achievements and gives a hint of the fabulous experience you can enjoy on the Viking Way.
A year or so ago she wouldn't turn on a computer, but now Irene Kendall has embraced the technology and in the space of 2 weeks sorted herself out a complete makeover with her existing web company. She's written all the content, free from waffle and naturally strong on SEO. She has focused on all her USPs and created a clear, clean navigation to her own spec. Her site is content managed so she can update everything and add events and menus to save on mailings.
Rightly so she is on cloud nine having just won her 3rd Tearoom of the Year Award. No mean feat here in rural Lincolnshire where our fabulous local food outweighs the number of punters. Like all good online tourism, Wold View House's simple but effective website shows and tells why this traditional English tearoom is well worth the trip.

Lots of my lovely clients have gorgeous gift ideas for Valentine's Day. With a week to go and so many online retailers offering super fast delivery there's no excuse for forecourt flowers and supermarket chocolates. So go on guys, take the hint.
I love these beads from Joules. Lazeme has the most luscious lingerie and sleepwear. And literally anything from Isabella Oliver would feel like the most wonderful treat for your pregnant partner. Go on spoil us.
