“I think they are a good thing if you can stick to them,” said Jan Curtin from Andover, while out shopping with her children Kayleigh and Dylan.

“I would like to be more organised, and I would like my partner to be more organised too.”

“I work with kids, I have two kids and I’m a cub leader, so some time for myself would be nice,” she added.
