I came across a brilliant gift site Old English Company while looking for some different aprons which would suit a male or female. The English Food Charcoal Apron which is a hand-lettered kitchen apron, illustrated with various well known English foods and dishes which include bacon butty, toad in the hole and Yorkshire pudding. Brilliant and only £12.95

Then I came across their unique enamel pins, something I haven’t seen before and I just loved the quirky ones they have on their site. They make the perfect accessory for any lapel or bag. As a coffee lover, I fell in love with their coffee inspired pins, ‘Coffee for Life’, ‘Coffee, then the World’, and ‘Coffee First’. 

Another great gift for a fella at only £7 or you could win a set of three heart-shaped ones for FREE  if you enter their competition.  To celebrate the new additions to their enamel pin range Old English Co decided to run this competition, giving you the chance to win a set of the below enamel pins!

To enter this competition, email your favourite enamel pin design from their entire range to

They will be picking one winner at random on the 30th May 2018.

I am a mum and wife to a lovely caring family. I’ve suffered with chronic back pain for over 30 years and started writing my first blog in 2007 which covered back and chronic pain. Since then I have written many more blogs for myself and customers. I find it takes me away from my pain to another place. I love it so much I think it should be part of a recovery process after illness or surgery. I hope you enjoy reading through my blogs.
