February isn’t so bad, right? Winter is fading away, shops are filled with flowers for Valentine’s day, chocolate eggs are creeping up on the shelves for Easter, and let us not forget pancake day. It's the one day of year devoted to the pancake and it's quite honestly what we live for.

Here is a list of tools, accessories and all the extra bits to make these pancakes your best yet...

Non-rubbish New Year's Resolutions to make in 2021:

Starting the year in the midst of a global pandemic means that we don't even have the energy to pretend to be a shiny new person for the first few weeks of January. Getting through each day is enough to contend with right now, thank you very much. However, there is nothing wrong with setting goals and challenges to help you feel more balanced, happier and all-around zen for the year ahead. Here are some resolutions that absolutely don't involve running a marathon or waking up at 5 am...

  1. Start a new hobby: whether it's pottery or baking bread, now is the time to make the most of your free weekends and quiet evenings. Anything that gets us off our phone for a bit, gets a yes from us.
  1. Make your bed first thing: a tidy bedroom equals a tidy brain, people. It will take you less than a minute and will help you feel more... y'know, together.
  1. Invest more in friendships: the pandemic has meant we've felt more alone than ever before. Remember second and third-tier friends? Send WhatsApp messages, forward memes and even make their day with a thoughtful letterbox gift. Ah, we feel better already.
