But for Sarah Long, the children are the least of her worries.

The former teacher has set up a clothes shop in her front room, with hundreds of dresses, shoes and bags stacked on rails where the sofas used to be.

The 37 year old started a small operation in the family play room, with just two rails from which she traded garments to friends, to earn a bit of extra money to take the children on days out.

But the business swiftly outgrew that room and has now taken over the property’s front room.

So while the house, on Mundesley Road, North Walsham, seems to be a normal, unassuming, suburban, semi detached home from the outside, it now hosts a thriving commercial premises.

The children are shunted into the playroom to make way for the shop, although the family can, on occasion, reclaim the living room.

“If the children want to watch films we push everything back and put cushions on the floor,” Mrs Long said.

The fashion conscious mother began collecting and selling second hand clothes to raise some extra cash last May. But 10 months later, the house has been taken over by boots, dresses, purses, bags and coats.

Sarah Long is not the first budding entrepreneur to start up a business in a front room:

A company in Great Yarmouth was set up by father and son Ashley and Mark Ford around 25 years ago. Their front room served as an office and their garage as the workshop. Signwaves reached an 8m annual turnover and it was reported last year they employed just under 100 members of staff.

21 year old entrepreneur from Poole, Jacob Porter Jones,

convinced his mother to give up half of their sitting room so he could set up his business selling mens designer clothes and style books.

Mother of three, Cheryl Campbell, transformed her living room into a vintage cafe. She set up The Front Room Cafe in the centre of Caerphilly after months of unemployment and a dream to pursue her love of cooking.

Helen Faulds from Papcastle, Cumbria, set up a charity in her front room after being inspired by a trip to Ethiopia. She helped raise more than 65,000 for people in need with her charity Poverty Swap.

Mrs Long, who lives with her husband and three children aged eight, five and three has named her shop Queen Bee, and the business is open to the public three days a week. She said she did not need permission from the council, as the business was not a permanent one.

“It is a treat for mums,” she said. “I remember going shopping for a ball dress with my youngsters and it was the most stressful experience. Here, mothers can bring their children but it is about them.”

Husband James, 35, a builder, added: “I’ll be converting the garage next.”

While the word about the shop has spread, Mrs Long said she was hoping to feature in Norwich Fashion Week next year, and has been working on a portfolio using local models with photographer Simon Watson.

People who bring clothes to sell in the shop earn 50pc of the sale price, which Mrs Long said means she often gets high end brands such as Ted Baker and Karen Millen.

She added: “I would never pay the mortgage with the income, I can see how it is hard to keep a shop in the city centre, but I wanted a bit of extra money to treat the children.”

And while most of the clothes are second hand, Mrs Long said she did not want people to feel like they were in a charity shop. “I want it to be something special,” she added.

In term time Queen Bee is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 9.30am to 1pm and on Saturdays from 10am to 4pm. Appointments can be made for other times.

ralph lauren usa polo North School for not wearing new uniform

Parents say 60 pupils were sent home from Ashford’s North School on Tuesday for not wearing the new uniform.

Head teacher Lesley Ellis defended her tough action on the first day back after the summer holidays, claiming the new uniform was brought in to make things easier for parents.

She said: is clear from our uniform guide that students who do not comply will be sent home. Her move has angered many parents who accused her of heavy handedness in making sure pupils adhered to the school new uniform policy.

Mother of two Karen Jackson, whose 15 year old daughter was among those turned away, said: daughter and 60 others got sent home for not wearing the correct uniform. Parent Tracey Harvey said: of 25 children in my daughter class there were eight left after uniform checks. Starting this term, the North School introduced a new policy for pupils in Years 7 11, demanding they all wear either school trousers or a school skirt with the school logo on it, as well as wearing the school sweatshirt and polo shirt, which also both include the school logo.

I was told she was sent home for having a pink streak in her hair, for wearing trousers without the logo on and for wearing the wrong shoes.

Penny Bigwood, of Christchurch Road, was also frustrated when her 15 year old son was sent home from the school on Tuesday.

She said: were two issues we were told. He had a piercing in his ear and he didn have the logo on his trousers.”

son is 6ft 3in tall. It is really difficult to get trousers for him. I have to get him men black trousers from Asda. It is ridiculous he was sent home. He is in Year 11, an important year. My son told me they sent over 60 children home.”

Mrs Bigwood son has been told that to have the logo sewn onto his Asda trousers, he will first need to get an approval letter from the school.

She added: will get the logo stitched on for as I refuse to pay for another pair of trousers. I have to get it done at the weekend though. Head Lesley Ellis, who would not confirm how many children had been sent home,

marco polo bridge incident North Dakota woman cut child from neighbour

A North Dakota woman who earlier admitted killing a pregnant neighbour to get her baby did it by cutting the baby from the mother womb as she faded in and out of consciousness, prosecutors said Friday.

Brooke Crews, 38, was sentenced to life in prison without parole in a hearing that for the first time detailed the August death of Savanna Greywind, 22, of Fargo.

Ashton Matheny, the baby father, said learning how his baby was born and his girlfriend died me apart. Greywind mother, Norberta Lafontaine Greywind, fought back tears, but said she was satisfied with the sentence the toughest Crews could have received.

Prosecutors said the two women argued, and Greywind was pushed and briefly knocked out before Crews began cutting her. Greywind eventually bled to death, they said.

East Central District Judge Frank Racek cited the predatory and cruel nature of the crime in handing down the maximum sentence.

Crews, wearing orange prison clothing and cuffed at the wrists, cried as she read a statement of apology. She said she wished she could take the family pain.

is no excuse. There is no rationalization. There is nothing, she said. Later, she showed no emotion as the judge passed sentence.

Crews boyfriend, William Hoehn,

faces a May trial in the case. He has pleaded not guilty. Prosecutors had cited his pending trial in withholding public details of Greywind death earlier.

Prosecutors asked for a sentence of life in prison with no parole. Defence attorney Steven Mottinger had asked for less, pointing out Crews admitted guilt without any promise of leniency.

Norberta LaFontaine Greywind, one of four family members to give statements during sentencing, said that what Crews did was evil, and said she was suffering horrific nightmares. Her husband, Joe Greywind, said the family is trying to heal, we find it nearly impossible. Police Chief Dave Todd earlier called Greywind death a and vicious act of depravity. initially claimed that Greywind gave up her newborn daughter, but she later admitted taking advantage of the woman to get the child, according to court documents.

Hoehn told police he came home on Aug. 19 to find Crews cleaning up blood in their bathroom. Hoehn said Crews presented him with an infant girl and said: is our baby. This is our family. Hoehn told police he took garbage bags containing bloody shoes and his bloody towels and disposed them away from the apartment complex.

A bill in Congress aimed at protecting Native American women and girls from violence, abduction and human trafficking is named for Greywind. Savanna Act, introduced by Democratic Sen. Heidi Heitkamp would improve tribal access to certain federal crime information databases and create standardized protocols for responding to cases of missing and murdered Native Americans.

It also would require an annual report that would include statistics on missing and murdered Native American women.

would never wish this suffering on anybody, on anybody family, on anybody sister or daughter or mother, said Gloria Allred, attorney for the Greywind family. the only good that will come out of it is more attention to change on this issue for other Native American women in the future.

villanova water polo Norfolk outlets to those in Williamsburg

Simon Premium Outlets Vice President of Development Scott Richardson said its new Norfolk Premium Outlets, set to open June 29, will be complementary to another of its properties about 50 miles to the north, the Williamsburg Premium Outlets.

To Simon Premium Outlets officials, the new Norfolk Premium Outlets and its sister property, Williamsburg Premium Outlets nearly 50 miles north, complement rather than compete with one another.

Still, on the website for Williamsburg Premium Outlets, it touts itself as serving “the nearby areas of Williamsburg, Virginia Beach, Norfolk and Richmond.”

Norfolk Premium Outlets, which opens June 29, sits just off of Interstate 64 and Northampton Boulevard, and within sight of Norfolk International Airport. Williamsburg Premium Outlets is off Route 199 and Richmond Road in James City County.

“Really, this is a different animal than Williamsburg, because this is our current prototype, for lack of a better term,” said Simon vice president of development Scott Richardson. “Williamsburg is an excellent place to shop, but it doesn’t have the sense of place that we have here.”

By that, Richardson said that, unlike Norfolk’s outlet property, it doesn’t have a lake and gazebo, a linear park, gathering areas, a boardwalk and walking trail surrounding the lake.

Promotional materials tout the Norfolk outlet mall’s village style setting and a sophisticated, contemporary design. The new outlet mall will also have fountains, fireplaces and public artwork.

“The differential for us here are the many communal spaces that have been developed as part of the property,” said Norfolk Premium Outlets director of marketing and business director Kathie Strauss.

What Williamsburg Premium Outlets does have is stores 130 of them, including the newly opened Brookstone, on 350,000 square feet of property. The new outlet mall will debut with 50 retailers, and will have 56 by the end of 2017 in the 323,
polo beach club maui Norfolk outlets to those in Williamsburg
000 square foot property.

Of the two outlets, 29 retailers will operate in both the Williamsburg and Norfolk outlet malls.

“(There was) no hesitancy whatsoever,” Richardson said.

“Through our portfolio, we have many examples of a new mall coming into an area where there had been a premium outlet before,” Morris said.

Three summers ago, Morris said Simon opened Twin Cities Premium Outlets in Eagan, Minnesota, about 10 minutes from the Minneapolis St. Paul airport. About an hour away to the north, there was already the Albertville Premium Outlets. Both, he said, are thriving today.

“We’re not going to cannibalize our marketplace,” Morris said. “We put a lot of thought into this and we feel that definitely, both will exist just fine, as they have in other markets.”

Karen Riordan, president of the Greater Williamsburg Chamber and Tourism Alliance, said she trusts Simon’s judgement in opening a new outlet mall in Norfolk. She said she has talked with Simon officials and is comfortable with the company’s plans.

“I trust that they’ve done the homework that says there will be initial excitement over anything new . but I think our base is great,” Riordan said. “We are a tourism economy. In addition to our locals enjoying the Williamsburg Premium Outlets, we do have so many tourists who are here for a couple of days and they do want shopping.”

Simon officials tout a positive economic impact to the Norfolk region, generating between 250 and 500 construction jobs and 500 full and part time positions.

Richardson said Simon had been looking for several years for the right spot to open an outlet mall in a large market before it found the current site. He expects to be a regional draw for locals and tourists alike, and he expects that both outlets will thrive.

“Even though Williamsburg is perceived as being close, in this type of a market, with all of the waterways and everything, water tends to segment the market,” Richardson said, “and we truly believe that this being a more central opportunity will bring more people that might not want to take the time to go to Williamsburg.

Norfolk Premium Outlets will serve the cities south of the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel, including Virginia Beach and Norfolk, according to Richardson. He expects the new outlet mall to draw from Hampton and Newport News north of the tunnel, the Eastern Shore via the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel and northeastern North Carolina to the south, though it is prepared to serve those coming on buses with a dedicated lounge for those arriving or departing.

“Williamsburg will still be a very successful shopping center, as will this, so we did this as a complement to Williamsburg to completely serve the entire market.”

Riordan said she expects no loss of business as a result of Norfolk Premium Outlet’s opening later this month.

“I don’t anticipate that there there will be even a short term hit,” Riordan said. “I think that there will be curiosity. I think that locals, in particular, will want to go and check it out. But I think that because of that store mix difference and the distance, I think the Williamsburg Premium Outlets will still hold their own.”

I have gondled. if that is, indeed, the past perfect of the verb that means to voyage on a gondola.

Expertly manoeuvring around the narrow canal streets of Venice, the gondolier was absent a stripey T shirt and straw hat. He was in a warm gilet and a quilted jacket. Nor did he sing O Sole Mio (aka Just One Cornetto) as we floated the waters of the lagoon inlets, passing by a house where Mozart lived and bobbing along the Grand Canal.

It was our second time in Venice, the first was a day trip when we were holidaying on nearby Lake Garda in the later Nineties, and the pound was stronger against the euro. The gondolier didn’t sing on that occasion either. I expect you have to pay extra to be serenaded. This time, on a three night trip with our friends, Jane and Richard, my husband gave us a few bars of an aria from Don Giovanni. Which was nice.

We decided against partaking of afternoon tea at the Florian cafe (37 euros per head) on St Mark’s Square but this did not spoil our enjoyment a jot. Neither did the one hour delay on the tarmac at Gatwick before flying out, nor the 90 minute delay getting through the Dartford tunnel, driving home. What you have to do, you see, is make inevitable hold ups a part of the bigger adventure; embrace them, eat wine gums.

We flew no frills with BA but were near enough business class to hear the frequent fliers being plied with cups of tea, sandwiches and victoria sponge. I have never flown anything but lower class, however, I have pretensions to being upper class. I have an urge to crawl under the blue curtain that separates us and them and inveigle myself into a vacant seat but couldn’t face the ignominy of being rumbled. I know my place.

Aeroplane pilots are very good about letting you know what’s going on when there are delays, these days. On the way out, Rupert not his real name said the engineers had been called to check ice on the wing (cue Twilight Zone music). Once upon a time that would have been enough to have me hyperventilating, shedding my shoes and heading for the exit wearing my life jacket but I’m a more relaxed air passenger today.

Returning home and enplaned at Marco Polo airport (did you hear about Marco Polo? He went to China and made a mint), Guy,
polo scarves Norfolk and Suffolk Lifestyle News
the pilot, told us the engineer had been called because fuel appeared to be leaking from an engine (cue reprise of Twilight Zone theme). Ten minutes later, we heard: “It seems to have stopped now, so we’ll soon be on our way.,” a jetsetter’s average day.

Landing at Gatwick we retrieved the car and discovered the hold up at the Dartford tunnel was causing one and a half hour delays so we stopped at Clackett Lane services and had a McDonalds and went large. as a result I have gone large too.

Back home, because the central heating was playing up (even as I type, Pete is installing a new system) we turned everything off and returned to an East Anglian ice box. Even putting socks on and snuggling up to my husband (I checked with the instruction book about how to do this) in bed failed to offset the biting cold. And now, for a few days, I don’t have any heating at all.

I am, naturally, wearing my thermals. but have been for at least a month. Even in Venice, one of the most romantic cities on the planet, I was happy to wear my M (other retailers are available) thermal vest.

As well as romance, Venice is known for its culture and we did some of that. The views that inspired Canaletto, the women who inspired Casanova and some of the quietest passing traffic in the world. Sadly, I didn’t get kissed under the Rialto Bridge, the water was too cold.

A Christmas note from my friend, Dorinda, reminds us this is the season of peace and goodwill to all men. “I walked through to the kitchen with the post this morning reading aloud from one of the envelopes which was addressed: ‘To the Boiler Owner’. ‘That will be me, then,’ said (husband), Chris, taking the post and simultaneously ducking out of the way.”

huntington beach water polo Nordstrom to drop Ivanka Trump

SEATTLE Nordstrom said Thursday it will stop selling Ivanka Trump clothing and accessories.

The move comes amid a weekslong campaign known as Your Wallet, which has been calling for a boycott of retailers that carry Ivanka Trump or Donald Trump merchandise. In November, Nordstrom posted a response on Twitter to a shopper letter calling for the company to stop selling the brand, saying, hope that offering a vendor products isn misunderstood as us taking a political position; we not. Nordstrom spokesperson didn say whether the decision to stop buying the brand was permanent, only that they make buying decisions each season. Nordstrom also said it offers thousands of brands and cuts about 10 per cent each year based performance.

The Ivanka Trump brand was no longer listed on the company website Thursday evening, and a search of her products on the site turned up just a few pairs of shoes, all of which had been marked down in price.

am absolutely thrilled, and I know the vast majority of Grab Your Wallet participants will be as well, said Shannon Coulter, a co founder of Grab Your Wallet.

Ivanka Trump independent lifestyle brand promotes her image as a successful working mother and partners with companies to make the branded blush pink dresses and trendy booties offered in multiple department stores.

Her business has also come under fire after she appeared on CBS Minutes wearing a nearly $11,000 gold bracelet from her jewelry line and someone from the company sent photos from the interview, seeking free publicity.

She said on Facebook in January she would take a formal leave of absence from her brand and from the Trump Organization but said she was confident both businesses would continue to thrive.

Now, Suit Up Springfield has grown from a social media campaign to a full fledged nonprofit organization with a storefront at 296 Worthington St. And it’s not just about looking dapper: It’s about mentoring and promoting an attitude that will help young people succeed academically and professionally. to noon.

Speakers included State Rep. Carlos Gonzales, Hampden County Sheriff Michael Ashe and Springfield City Council President Michael Fenton, who sits on the organization’s Board of Mentors.

Suit Up Springfield was founded by Justin Roberts, a Development Officer at American International College. He received two commendations for his work: One from the state Senate, presented by Sens. Sen. Elizabeth Warren’s office.

Ashe, who said he was “deeply honored to be here,” spoke about the importance of supporting recently released inmates and at risk youth.

“In terms of gangs, substance abuse, the violence and so on, and the question we always ask, ‘Are we sitting in the bars and the coffee shop just talking about the issue, or are we going to step up?'” said Ashe. “These young people have stepped up to make something happen and I’m just so proud.”

He added that 3,500 inmates are released per year and they need assistance to “go forth with tools and lead a better life.”

Several speakers told personal stories about how dressing better and changing their behavior helped them overcome obstacles.

The first beneficiary of Suit Up Springfield’s work was Jonathen Neris, a 17 year old senior at the High School of Commerce. Born into an impoverished family, Neris said he wore plastic bags as diapers and, as he got older, he became involved with gangs.

Now, he is a battalion commander and cadet colonel for Commerce’s JROTC program. He said looking your best is “empowering.”

Board member Thom Fox said he started taking drugs when he was only 9 years old and committed his first crimes at 11.

“I fell in love with angel dust, and angel dust and I had a relationship for the next seven years,” said Fox. “In that time, I was homeless, I was stabbed, I was shot at, left for dead on a handful of occasions, ate out of dumpsters, mugged old ladies.”

A decade ago, he met a mentor and started making major changes, getting his GED and a college education. He now owns a business and hosts a radio show with a focus on economic development.

“I believe that the investment that was paid to me, I have to return that,” said Fox. “Someone helped me and changed my life, and I think we have an opportunity here with all these kids in Springfield that have these challenges, to really make a difference in their lives, too.”

Board member Jose Delgado said he once attended a college job fair wearing a hoodie and sweatpants. Two weeks later, an administrator gave him a suit that he wore to interviews and, eventually, to work. He wore that suit to Wednesday’s ceremony.

“Don’t underestimate the power of a suit,” said Delgado. “We’re trying to transform lives one suit at a time.”

Rep. Gonzalez said the organization is one piece of the rebirth of downtown Springfield, and he called for a theme night in the entertainment district, requiring all men who go to the clubs to wear a suit.

“Let’s shake this around! Add more to the flavor of this great initiative!” said Gonzalez to cheers and applause.
