Let them eat cake

It doesn't take much to persuade us mums to sit down for coffee and cake, even if we know we shouldn't. But here's how to do it guilt free (brilliant). On September the 28th, join Macmillan's 'World's Biggest Coffee Morning'- ask some friends around (perfect for those people you met at NCT classes), dish up some treats and get everyone to donate the cost of their coffee. In fact, why keep it to once a year? An idea as good as this could be done once a month (at least).
