THEY say age is just a number, but what about weight? One couple from Manchester are proving that love comes in all shapes and sizes after revealing their "mixed weight" relationship is perfect. Emma and Stuart Grundy are teenage sweethearts and have been married for two years after meeting at a local supermarket. And the pair say that despite being total opposites, they couldn't be happier. Emma, 30, said: "I’ve always been bigger than Stuart but after having three kids I have put on more weight. "At my heaviest I weighed 27st stone but Stuart has always been no more than 9st." Stuart, 30, is rather quiet and reserved but despite Emma having an outgoing and bubbly nature, she says they're the perfect pairing. Although she did admit he wasn't 100 per cent her type on paper - at first. "It has never bothered us that I’m bigger than Stuart as we’re both so happy and in love with each other," she explained. "When I first met Stuart I was attracted to how shy he was as … [Read more...] about A mum who weighs 16 STONE more than her husband has revealed how their ‘mixed weight’ relationship is perfect
These adorable animals are on the lookout for a loving home. But there's one catch - they have to stay together. The Hull Animal Welfare Trust is on the hunt for new owners to take on some of their newest recruits, each of which come with their best friend, brother or sister. The animals come in pairs but because they have lived together most of their lives, they cannot bear to be apart. So the trust is looking for extra special owners who can take on both pets at the same time. And while it may seem daunting at first, adopting a pair can sometimes be much easier than adopting the one pet as they can keep each other company. A spokeswoman for the Trust, which is based in South Cave, said: "All we would say is that it is more difficult to rehome pairs of dogs but sometimes, they're just as easy as the one. "What pairs we have got in are really lovely and are just looking for a special home. "We would suggest for people to come down and take a look and not be put off that there are two … [Read more...] about Six pairs of rescue dogs and cats in search of a loving home
A LUSH pair of designer heels is every girl's dream. But we're not all Carrie Bradshaw, and most of us can't afford to splash out hundreds of pounds on a pair of shoes - no matter how gorgeous. Luckily for us, Office has made a lookalike version of Valentino's Rockstud leather pumps - and they cost a fraction of the price. The designer pumps are "one of the house's most iconic styles" and they're hand-embellished with studs. Made in Italy, the shoes have a 4ins heel and come up small to size - so the fashion house recommends buying a size down. They also have caged strap detailing and a buckle-fastening ankle strap. But at £670 a pop, we're afraid they don't come cheap. Valentino Garavani The Rockstud Leather Pumps, £670, Net-A-Porter - buy now Office's shoes, meanwhile, have an open-back stiletto heel and a T-bar front. Like the designer heels, they are made from real leather - and are dotted with studs. They're the perfect pair of "fierce" heels to take a summery dress … [Read more...] about Office is selling £40 studded heels which look just like Valentino’s £670 designer pair – can you tell the difference?
Cynics might initially question an attempt to splice the stories of a single malt from the shifting mists of Skye in Scotland, with a sherry from solar-powered southern Spain. Scotland’s north west coast shelters from around 265 days of wind and rain, while the sun-baked sherry region basks, (and occasionally shelters) from 300 days of rays. The terrain, the light, the climate, the culture, it can all, on the surface at least, appear quite mismatched. Granted the whisky industry has matured in sherry barrels for centuries, but the similarities could appropriately end there. And yet on a recent trip to the sherry triangle with Talisker, I was staggered at how in tune the two turned out to be. The trip to Spain was to witness the launch of the Talisker Bodega Series, the first incarnation being a Talisker 40-year-old. After 40 years luxuriating in American oak, this extraordinary whisky has enjoyed a three to four month finishing spell in Amontillado barrels from one of the … [Read more...] about Whisky and sherry, an unlikely perfect marriage?
